Hey, I'm Amy. Originally from TX, I'm a busy mom and have lived in NY for 8 years now. I love living downtown and exploring all it has to offer. I also love reading, running, and sewing.
The stay at Amy's place was great! Her spacious apartment was very comfortable, even for 6 adults living together for almost two weeks. The BoCoCA area, in which the apartment is located, is very nice with a lot of different restaurants and shops. Since the Metro station Caroll Garden is only a few hundred meters away, it is exteremly easy to go to Manhattan (with the F or G train). When we had a small problem with the lock, Amy reacted immediately and help was there within an hour.
Further, the apartment is Ninja-proof :-)
This my second stay at one of Amy's wonderful apartments in Carroll Gardens. She's a great host and the place is just great!
We really enjoyed our stay at Amy's place in Carroll Gardens. The neighbourhood is amazing with lots of great restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, and shops. It is also a wonderful place to go wander and enjoy the brownstone architecture of Brooklyn. The apartment is a few blocks away from the F-subway line and about a 25 minute walk to the Brooklyn bridge for those who want to head to Manhattan on foot. Amy's photos well represent the lovely apartment with three good sized rooms and comfy queen beds. We were six adults and one baby and we were very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked and Amy even had a few treats in the fridge to welcome us. I would only say that those who are sensitive to noise at night should bring earplugs because the floors are quite squeaky. I would recommend this apartment and I think Amy is a great and responsive host.
I rent Amy's 2 bedroom apt quite often and I can always count on it being clean, and well cared for. If there are ever any unexpected issues that arise, Amy takes care of them immediately.
Excellent location to any and everything. No matter how often we're in town walking around Cobble Hill is always a pleasant experience. Great area to eat, visit and live!
We spent 5 days in this apartment and all went well. Amy was very reactive when we needed something and it is a pleasure as a guest to have this service. Thank you and I recommend this apartment for an experience in The City
Appartement très bien situé dans Caroll gardens, à 2pas de Smith St, animée.
Joli déco, appartement confortable quoique un peu bruyant.
Amy s'occupe de notre confort, le chauffage est tombé en panne et elle nous a installé de nombreux chauffages électriques immédiatement !
Très bonne adresse
We are a family with 2 teenage children booked in to the 3 bedroom apartment for 5 weeks. If you are looking for 5 start Manhattan apartment living, this isnt it. But if you are looking for an apartment oozing character in a safe, friendly Brooklyn neighbourhood then this is absolutely it and you will not be disappointed. The apartment is very spacious - a bit cold at times but the Owner left us some additional heaters to cope with the unseasonable cold. Laundromat a block down the street. Beds and pillows were excellent. The subway is only a couple of blocks away and very convenient to Manhattan. We loved coming home to the peace and quiet of Carroll Gardens after the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. Restaurants, boutique shops, cafes, bakeries, food markets all within a few minutes walk. We were sad to leave and would love to go back.
Amy was a splendid host, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place was clean and well organized, and the location was superb. Amy really went above and beyond when our plans changed due to a flight cancellation, and I'm so grateful we picked a "cool" host when booking our stay in NYC :)
Amy is a great host, she checked in several times, left a pack and play set up for our two year old (I think), and left a bottle of wine and some fruit as a welcome gift.
The apartment is great as well. As a former resident of the neighborhood the location is ideal. The apartment was clean and cheerful. Amy has addressed heating issues by putting new space heaters everywhere and the stairs/entryway was clean with no bad smells per earlier reviews. I would stay here again and recommend the apartment to anyone visiting the area who wants to stay in Carroll Gardens. My only caveats would be do not stay here if you sensitive to noise (street and neighbor) you do not want to walk up stair (up two flights), you want a luxury bathroom and you require ample natural light. That said these are issues for most nyc apartments so I imagine most accept these as par for the course. I still would rather stay at Amy's over a hotel. Thanks Amy!
What a truly fabulous place! We had a wonderful time staying in this super cool place in the heart a really cool part of Brooklyn. We were working in Manhattan and found it easy getting the subway over everyday…. and always enjoyed coming 'home' in the evening.
It's always a privilege to have fellow airbnb hosts as guests! Amy and Jim were perfect, amazing guests. They stayed in touch with me throughout their stay, and after they left it was impossible to tell anyone had been in my apartment because it was so amazingly clean. I would. of course, recommend them as guests to anyone. They are the kind of guest every host hopes for. I hope to host them again someday!
Amy was an extremely low maintenance guest, it was as if she was never there. She left the place clean and virtually untouched. Even the few bath towels she used were neatly folded. I hope she comes back again and again!
I've known Amy & Co., for many years, amazing people. Great people. I've also rented the unit in LES, clean, perfect location, has everything you need for a comfortable stay in NYC.
