This apartment is just PERFECT. I stayed there for six months and I just loved it!
First, the neighborhood is great: Bushwick is full of restaurants, bars and coffee shops of great quality. A lot of amazing things happen everyday in this booming neighborhood.
Plus, the apartment is on a very lively street and just on the L train, which takes you to Williamsburg and Manhattan in 10' and 20'. The L train is the best, as it goes through Manhattan from East to West and join all other lines.
Most importantly, the apartment itself is just awesome. It faces the courtyard, wich makes it very quiet (and this is rare and precious in New York). It faces North but is still very luminous. The two main rooms are very spacious and very nicely furnished. The place is very big! With the air mattress and the couch, you can sleep there at four people easily. Kevin has a lot of sheets and towels, all very nice. His collection of books is just a dream. The kitchen is fully equipped and I really enjoyed cooking there. I could list many other qualities: in a word, I just loved living in this apartment, alone or as a couple.
Also, Kevin is an amazing host! Incredibly fast at answering any of my questions and really friendly.
I definitely recommend this place, for short or longer stays. You won't regret it. I miss it already!
Nice and comfortable apartment, well-equipped. The apartment is perfect for two people, even to spend some time in it. We are grateful that the area has several basic services around. It is also very close to the L line subway.
Kevin is an extraordinary and attentive host! He's given us everything we need for the travel and during the stay. Kevin can give you interesting information because he has books for everyone.
We loved walking around Bushwick with Kevimn and taste his guacamole homemade!!
Amazing experience! From the get go, communication was seamless; Kevin was quick and really helpful with replying to our emails and was even kind enough to email a long list of things to see/do/eat in the area.
We stayed there for just under a week in August and before we got there Kevin took the trouble to install an air conditioner and even got a couple of fans for us too so it made the summer nights really comfortable. Everything was exactly as the photos presented and description spot on, the apartment was really clean with plenty of towels, sheets, bedding etc. We felt really comfortable and couldn’t have asked for more. Hospitality was second to none.
The apartment is a stone’s throw away from Jefferson station on the L line and you’re in Manhattan in 15/20 mins. The only thing that caused us any inconvenience was the track work on the L line (2 nights) but I think it’s pretty sporadic throughout the year. It meant we had to take a bus/taxi after 12am so you might want to check if there’s any track maintenance.
The area had everything we needed almost just outside the door. There’s a convenience store next to the apartment which was handy but we ate out all the time. There’s a good coffee and bagel place a block away by the station if you want breakfast to-go. There are some cool restaurants and bars down the road (close to Morgan Ave station) small trendy bars, pop up thrift store trucks and cool restaurants dotted about. As for safety, we came back around midnight most nights and felt very safe walking around. We wished we had more time to explore the area. We met some hip New Yorkers born and bred and they said Bushwick is where it’s at.
All in all, great place, great rates, great area, great host and AWESOME find! We would easily stay there again.
Fantastic apartment that was a great place to stay for me and my wife for just over a week.
The apartment is spacious, clean and tidy. It has everything you need to have a great stay. The apartment is in a lovely location in an interesting up and coming neighbourhood. It is close to the L-train and you can be in central Manhattan in 20 mins. There was plenty of good and interesting cafes, retaurants and food shops.
Kevin was a great host who I met to pick up the keys. He took time to show me around the apartment. He was even able to spare time to show me around the area and point out some great palces to eat and other useful amenties like laundrettes. Kevin was also very easy to communicate with: fast on emails as well as text messages and phone.
This was a gret apartment and I would definately recommend.
Kevin and Shannon were wonderful guests. Lively, articulate, respectful, great fun to be around. I would definitely welcome them back again and hope they can make a return visit soon (longer this time! ;-) Highly recommendable!
Kevin was polite and very respectful of our home. He went out of his way to be sure he wasn't an inconvenience. We enjoyed a great conversation with him, and he kept his space very tidy. Highly recommended!
Kevin and his gf were great guests. Super communicative prior to arrival, dealt with glitches on the airbnb site during booking, left the place in really top notch shape, even helped with an old house problem toilet that decided to act up while i was away, which I super appreciated.Highly recommend him as a guest for any host, a great guy who i hope will come back.
Kevin was an amazing guest! He was very flexible with issues with the apartment and had amazing communication before and through his stay. He was kind enough to clean everything in the room before he left (something seldom people do), he was great to chat with and great energy all around. Anyone would be lucky to have him as a guest.
Kevin and his guest were great. My place was left spotless. They even stripped my bed so my housekeeper would have an easier time cleaning up.
Kevin booked for two friends from Germany, and was great with taking care of communications. They were great guests, welcome back any time! Thanks!
Great guest....Kevin is welcome back anytime!
Kevin and Sandy were excellent guests. They were very friendly and easy going. They even shared some of the delicious produce they'd picked up during their road trip with us. They left the room clean and tidy. Would definitely recommend them.
Kevin and Sandy were a joy to have in our apartment in Charleston. They treated the apartment with respect and left it clean and tidy.
We recommend them.
