I had a great stay at Carolyn's place! The apartment is extraordinarily well-located, just around the corner from the subway, a MET food store, a bagel place, a coffee shop, and just about every bar and restaurant in Carroll Gardens you'd ever need to visit. As for the apartment itself, the living room area is very spacious and gets lots of sunlight; it also has a small balcony. The kitchen looked nice, though I didn't have the chance to use it. The bedroom is rather large, with a comfortable bed and a plenty-big closet. And the private bathroom just down the hall was perfect.
Unfortunately my schedule during my visit was hectic, and I only got to meet Carolyn for a minute. However, she was flexible with check-in and check-out times, and made sure during my stay, via text messages, that I had everything I needed.
I love this neighborhood and enjoyed the apartment, so I would definitely stay here again.
Carolyn was super accommodating and the space is great. I wasn't around a whole lot, but the location is great with easy access to the subway and good coffee and restaurants withing super easy walking distance. The room was clean and comfy, everything you need in a place to stay in Brooklyn.
The space was exactly as advertised, and the location is great! Thanks so much.
Great neighbourhood - more places to eat and drink than you can shake a stick at. Large room with loads of space for my stuff, a clean bathroom all to myself, and super close to the subway.
Back catalogue of The New Yorker also very welcome.
only complaint would be that the room was a little cold, but then, the weather has been ridiculous.
I had a great weekend visiting in NYC, and staying at Carolyn's helped make that possible. The apartment is quiet, clean, and comfortable, and the neighborhood has so much to offer. I would stay here again.
Great place to stay, very close to Manhattan by the F train, the Station was not far away. Carolyn is a great person, very friendly and kind, she will help you and anything you need. The area was perfect as well as you can find very good places to eat or have a drink, and is quite safe too!! Definitively we recommend the place and Carolyn as a good host!!
Carolyn was a very communicative and accommodating host. She was great about getting me everything I needed, from a hairdryer and umbrella to an extra comforter given the chilly weather. The room was simple but clean (though not the room pictured). It is in the front of the apartment, so street noise was a little distracting, but it is overall a pretty quiet location. Having my own bathroom to use (though down the hall) was a huge plus. This is a great location in Brooklyn, in a quiet area that is nonetheless close to some good restaurants and bars, and right down the block from a great bagel place! I would definitely stay here again.
I stayed in Carolyn's apartment for two weeks. The apartment is exactly as described; comfortable and clean. The room is very spacious and the neighborhood is safe and close to restaurants and public transportation. Carolyn is an excellent host: always available and very welcoming. I definitely recommend the host and the place
I stayed here for four nights and it was perfect for my needs. The room was spacious clean, as was the rest of the apartment. Very close to the subway which made it easy to get around. Carolyn was very responsive to any questions I had. I'd definitely stay here again when visiting NYC.
Carolyn and her gal pals converged at the Homestead for a 30th birthday celebration. Check-in/out coordination was seamless and they took great care of the house as if it were their own. They even help wrangle one of my frisky hens who has been sneaking out of the run to find her rooster. I would love to host them again!
Carolyn was great, and what wonderful guests! They treated my home as if it were their own...and then some :). They pulled the sheets, folded all blankets, cleaned the apartment, and left me a nice note after leaving. Carolyn was quick to respond, and was such a warm, positive person when we met. Definitely a great family to share your home with.
