I’m a freelance designer . We ownes the house and have been living here for over 10 years.
Demi's apartment is sparkling clean, spacious, and well-equipped. The kitchen is fully stocked if you want to save some money and cook while you're in NY (and the granola is delicious!). Though she and I never met in person, she was very communicative and helpful with the check in and check out process, and even texted me to ask if I'd like her to shut the windows during a surprise rainstorm when I was out.
I'm moving to the area soon and will recommend her place to any friends I have visiting!
We had a great stay, the apartment was larger than expected and had all required amenities. AC in the bedroom kept us cool as it was peak summer and very hot! Short walk to subway and local cafes.
Host was welcoming and maintained good, mostly timely communication. The space is clean and is accurately depicted in the photographs. It's a bit humid there--this was in July--and there were a few minor bug issues. The location was great for our purposes, close to bodegas, bars, restaurants, the Brooklyn Museum, and public transportation.
The "minor bugs" are spiders from the garden not rodents, but it's a garden Apt.
It's location is outstanding for those seeking to be in and near the action of the "New Brooklyn".
The place was very nice, clean and comfortable. The outdoor backyard was a true plus. We did not spend a lot of time inside, our agenda has us out and about being a true tourist. It is a good place for a good price.
Everything was perfectly clean and comfortable in the apartment (which is beautifully lit with lots of natural sunlight!). The neighbourhood is very easy to navigate and the options for public transport in the area is endless.
Demi was regularly in touch to make sure everything was going well and we were happy in the apartment.
We had a wonderful stay in Brooklyn at Demi's apartment in a beautiful brownstone. It was clean, comfortable, and had the amenities we needed for our three-night stay. It was in the perfect location and close to everything including wonderful restaurants and stores. Demi was very responsive before and during our visit. We would stay here again.
Spent 6 night's at Demi's apartment. It is well-equipped, clean, the bed is comfortable, and we fund it quite spacious for the two of us. It is within a few minutes walk of a couple of different subway stations. We only met Demi once but she provided us with her phone number should we need to contact her about anything.
The photograph is slightly misleading because the room it shows is now carpeted not exposed wooden floors but that didn't concern us.
There were a couple of things that make it unlikely we would return.
The apartment has no air conditioning and although Demi provides a couple of fans, they didn't help a lot, especially at night when trying to sleep.
There was an excessive amount of noise on a couple of nights, shouting, screaming, loud music going on until 2am or so. While realizing that we were in a city, this noise was coming from people in the street itself, not from other houses. It was almost like there was a street party going on so maybe we were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Had a wonderful birthday (and Beyonce!!!) in NYC and it's partly to do with the awesome experience we had at Demi's place. While we weren't able to meet in person, Demi was very communicative making sure we had what we needed and all instructions were super clear for accessing the keys, apt., etc. The place is exactly as described / shown in the photos. Only reason I'm not providing a perfect score is that when we were actually in the apt during the day or winding down at night, the internet was slower than we're used to and the TV had only a few basic channels but this didn't hamper our time obviously as we weren't home that often. I would recommend Demi's place in a heartbeat and when we're in NYC next, we hope to stay there again.
Demi was a wonderful host and her home was even more beautiful than in the pictures (and super clean and smelled good!). When we thought we broke her window, she came running up the stairs and fixed it like a champ. The neighborhood was quiet enough to ensure a good night's sleep but had enough people around at night to make it feel safe. Very convenient with all the public transportation options too. I can't say enough good things about her house!
Everything in the apartment was as described, good location, host was awesome.
