The location of Karen´s apartment was just perfect. Dumbo area is very nice with nice restaurant, the perfect almond croissants, over the top grocery store, bookstores - and of course the Brooklyn Bridge park.
From the beginning of booking process to the minute we left to the airport, Karen always answered all questions very fast and gave nice info on the neighborhood.
The apartment was specious enough for five, although the smaller bedroom bed is not big enough for two tall scandinavians - one of us ended up sleeping downstairs, but it worked out fine. We didn´t get to enjoy the patio due to weather, but it looked nice. Towels and bathrooms were nice, only thing we would have liked to see was soap (she did tell us to bring our own) and some space in the closets for our clothes.
Overall this being our first Air b n´b experience, everything went very smoothly. Karen was flexible on the check out hours and both her and the apartment had a very welcoming feeling. Would absolutely book with her again!

Karen was so accommodating and helpful! She went our her way to make sure we had keys before arrival by stopping by my office to deliver them. She left detailed instructions about her home and its accommodations, which was perfect for 2 new employees who were visiting for orientation. She also checked in twice to make sure our stay was going well.
My friends and I had a wonderful time staying in Karen's apartment. The location was perfect for us. Short walk to the subway which made getting into Manhattan super easy. DUMBO is a great neighborhood with a really nice vibe and excellent views of the city, It had everything we needed within walking distance.
The apartment was everything that we needed. The 4 of us felt quite at home and had plenty of space.
Karen was so easy to communicate with, both in the lead up to our stay and also during our stay. She was very helpful and her recommendations were great.
We hope to come back one day!
Location was great, right under the Brooklyn bridge. Apartment was exactly as described and very comfortable. Karen was a great host and extremely helpful with arranging for key pick-up and responding to our queries! Would strongly recommend this listing.
We loved our stay. The apartment was charming and provided ample room for two couples and a toddler. And you cannot pick a better spot in Dumbo.
Karen was a responsive and accommodating host.
Thanks again, Nate
Everything in Karen's place is just so wonderful. The location is unbeatable - so close to the park (with beautiful view of Manhattan and the two bridges). We enjoyed our stay for two nights. We parked our car in the garage (directly across the apartment) only once. On Sunday night, we were lucky to find street parking space (free until 9 am next morning). Beware that there are many stairs to the third floor. My elderly siblings came from overseas with heavy luggage, so they managed to bring just the needed items into the apartment (keeping the main luggage in the car). Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you, Karen!
Fantastic location close to three subway lines, one of which goes direct to JFK. Brilliant being able to walk to Manhattan over the Brooklyn Bridge....what a great way to approach the city! And one of our best experiences was walking through Brooklyn Heights above the Expressway and back along the Brooklyn Bridge Park Greenway after Smorgasbord on the Sunday. Good choice of cafes and restaurants on the doorstep of the apptmnt, and Karen was very helpful in leaving advice re her favourite ones. Right opposite superb bookshop called Powerhouse Arena. Wish we could have stayed longer. One week didn't scratch the surface!
I hosted Karen's son Ian, who was a very friendly and communicative young man, open to other cultures and eager to explore it as well. Though first time to China, he adapted to it fairly fast and well. I am also happy to see that he organized his trip around his passion and major: dance/drama performance with an enlightening 3-week workshop at Chinese opera in Shanghai. He is not that common touristy type, but rather tried to live as a local and mix with the local young people of the same interest.
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!
