New to Brooklyn and loving it.
This was my first time using Airbnb but everything was great! Nadya and Mike made it very simple, had everything organized and in good order for us. They also answered our few questions very quickly. The apartment was great and in a great location in a nice neighborhood. They also accommodated an early arrival and late departure. We didn't spend much time in the apartment because we were out and about seeing the city most of the time. The place is just 2 or 3 blocks from good subway options. I fear that too many visitors to NYC assume that they need to stay in Manhattan instead of a nice place in Brooklyn.
Nadya and Mike's are amazing, wonderful people. I am related to Nadya. They are reliable and make their house a home. Nadya has a great sense of style and her apartment really has a warm and inviting feel because of this. She has put a lot of work into her apartment and opens it up to family and friends. They are easygoing hosts. Their place is NYC cool, and is conveniently close to the park, the subway, busses, bars, restaurants, etc.
I love it there.
I have had family stay with Nadya several times through non airbnb arrangements. First of all, her apartment is great! Very comfortable, convenient, beautifully decorated and fun (who has a ping pong table in NYC?!?) The neighborhood is gorgeous, safe and so close to everything! There is even a doorman in her building. Nadya is a wonderful host, answers any questions, and is great with the "tips and tricks" of NY.
