We really enjoyed our stay at Karen's apartment which was the perfect size for our family. It was great having a well equipped kitchen and enough beds for two adults and three kids. Karen was really helpful letting us leave our bags in the apartment early and especially when our daughter locked herself in a bedroom! We really enjoyed discovering dumbo and there were really easy transport options to take us all around the city. All in all, a fantastic stay. Highly recommended.
Response from Karen:
Thanks Jeremy! So glad you enjoyed both the neighborhood and our home! We'd love to have you again, any time!
All the best,
My in-laws and I stayed in this apartment for nearly two weeks and it was a great apartment. The location was amazing in DUMBO, and there were so many fun restaurants and shops nearby. The space was great in this apartment, with an awesome open floorplan downstairs. The only negatives were that there were a number of lightbulbs out, some of the kitchen cabinets were a bit disorganized, and there was a leaky faucet, but those are things that are easily changed. We had a blast, and the place was great for us. Thanks so much Karen for a cool NY stay!
Response from Karen:
Hi Nancy, thanks for the heads up regarding the light bulbs and faucet. Had you told me there was a leak, I would have gladly sent someone to change it. But overall thanks for the visit!
Karen was a great host! Her flat is in great location, the coffee shop across makes the best coffee too. Highly recommended!
Karen was wonderful to communicate with, her apartment is in a great location. Would tell anyone to stay here.
L'appartement de Karen est très agréable pour une famille qui vient visiter New York. Nous avons passe un magnifique séjour et découvert un quartier de Brooklyn très agréable et très bien desservi par le métro.
Karen a été très prévenante avec nous
Loved this apartment! Was in a great location, near to the subway and walk the Brooklyn bridge. Also starbucks in corner and great sushi place downstairs. Highly recommended!
This is a really nice spacious apartment with all you need and right on the doorstep of Manhattan. It was a five minute walk to two different subway stations, and then only one stop to Manhattan, and a short trip to the main spots such as Times Square. It's in a great little area of Brooklyn with nice local shops, cafes and bars. The view from the edge of the water, 20 seconds walk from the front door can't be beat! Karen was a great communicator, with quick responses to my queries. I would recommend staying here.
Karen is an amazing host, and her apartment is beautiful- with a very strategic location in the wonderful DUMBO. The apartment has everything you need, including some great recommendations for area dining and activities. I would highly recommend staying here. (Love the Art in the apartment too!)
Karen was a great host. The apartment is nice and comfortable. With an excellent location (Dunbo is a beautiful and trendy neighborhood). 100% recommendable.
Karen was a wonderful host. Quick to respond to all questions and accommodating of our schedule. Her place is very comfortable and in a great location. We could hear folks in the unit above into the wee hours of the morning on both nights, but earplugs took care of that problem. An eye pillow might be a good idea too if you like it really dark at night. The big modern widows don't have curtains, which is very cool but lets in city lights.
I would definitely stay with Karen again!
What a wonderful guest! It was such a pleasure to have Karen and her group stay at my guest house. They even cleaned the house before leaving!!! I can't recommend Karen more highly. Thank you for staying with me and I hope to see you again soon.
Karen is a great guest! Very nice and easy to communicate with! I would highly recommend her to anyone on Airbnb!
