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.
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.
Amy was a gracious host and made us feel most welcome in this roomy 2 bedroom. It's a great location, and we loved the close proximity to all of the charms of the neighborhood. Great food, shopping, and quick access to the F/G trains make this a perfect spot for some time in Brooklyn. Amy was very communicative and took care of everything we needed while we were in town. We'll hope to stay here again.
Amy is a wonderful host, responding to my initial query within hours and checking in with me after our arrival to make sure we had gotten settled and everything was ok. The apartment is just as advertised -- clean, comfortable, in a great neighborhood, and convenient to Manhattan and other parts of Brooklyn.
Staying at Amy's 3 bedroom this time (we always stay in her 2 bedroom) was just perfect as I prepared Thanksgiving dinner for my family of 12. The grocers and of course Winn being so close was especially convenient on Thanksgiving Day!
Amy was so accommodating (as always), seeing to our needs from extra seating to a baby bed.
Thank you again Amy for making our stay most comfortable!
When it comes to hosts, Amy is the fastest quickdraw in the East. She responded super quickly, which I really appreciated since I was organizing accommodations for myself and coworkers. She was really flexible about letting some of us leave our luggage in the apartment after check out so that we could sightsee a little more before our late flights. Really appreciated the freedom and flexibility of this place. And the beds were super comfy!
The folks down at the bar below were also amazingly welcoming and kind. They even comped us a beer or two!
Location couldn't be beat. Right smack in the middle of all the Brooklyn fun. Close to lots of delicious restaurants, shops, and coffee houses. Highly recommend it for groups!
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.
