Joanna nous répondait très vite à nos mails dès que nous avions des questions.
Appartement dans un petit quartier résidentiel au calme mais pas loin (5min à pieds) des bus, de petits restos pour des plats tout faits ou de magasins (sur La Brea) pour s'acheter à manger. Le permis de stationner prêté par Joanna nous a bien rendu service pour nous garer devant chez elle. Le petit patio devant son entrée est sympa et nous a permis de discuter avec 1 ou 2 voisins.
Franchement, rien à redire sur le rapport qualité-prix de cet appart' propre. Vous vous y sentirez comme chez vous. On y a passé un très agréable moment, merci encore !
This was the perfect place to stay in new york. The location was great. Very close to manhattan (just over the bridge) and right in Williamsburg which is full of cute shops, restaurants, and its own culture. The apartment was clean and came with all amenities. Joanna is a very gracious host and goes the extra mile for her guests (she even installed AC during the hot summer months). Cant say enough good things about the host and the apartment. The place is perfect for two roommates, the bedrooms are huge and feel very spacious. There is no living room, but not really needed in ny as most of the time is spent outside of the apartment. Anything you need is within walking distance. Would highly recommend this place. :)
Joanna provided a very pleasant, clean comfortable stay in great neighborhood. She was very responsive and easy to communicate with before and throughout my trip.
Joanna's apartment has two bright and spacious bedrooms that are flooded with sunlight throughout the day. The neighbourhood is tranquil and excellently placed for access to the M train (5 mins walk) and L Train (10-12 mins walk). We had near zero fahrenheit while we were in town yet the apartment was always nice and warm as was the hot water in the excellent shower.
Arrival and departure all went well and we found the apartment in good condition and professionally prepared with clean sheets and towels.
Next time we come back to Williamsburg we'll definitely be in touch with Joanna.
Very efficient communication prior to trip, easy to obtain access to place...place was exactly as advertised...great location and great accommodation for a trip to LA
Joanna was an excellent host throughout the whole process. She was friendly and easily contactable. She went above and beyond to help us get settled in her apartment.
The apartment itself was in great condition. The bedrooms were quite spacious and had a beautiful amount of light during the day. It was situated very close to a subway station and was about a 2 minute walk from Williamsburg bridge. While not exactly in the heart of hipster Williamsburg, it certainly was a short walk from it.
A great place to stay to get to know New York.
Joanna's place is located in the perfect location - you can't be more central in LA! We really enjoyed staying at her flat, it is very clean and has everything you ned. Another big plus is Joanna herself - she loves to be a host and is truly helpful with whatever you will need. Highly recommended!
Joanna was super helpful and organized with the details for the apartment. The apartment is perfect for the traveller requiring simple straight forward accommodation in LA. It was very clean and has a great kitchen. It suited my needs perfectly, i spent most of the day out and about and came home to sleep and collect my thoughts. The neighbours are super friendly and form a nice community atmosphere.
Formosa is more than an apartment is a community of nice friendly people! I'd come back here anytime.
Joanna and her guests were pleasant. It was fairly easy to work with Joanna while she was making the reservation. They left the house in good condition and the cleaning lady was happy!!
Highly recommend Joanna to other hosts. She was a lovely guest, very pleasant and easy to communicate with. Joanna left the space nice tidy and was extremely considerate overall. She is most definitely welcome back!
Joanna was a really great guest - it helps that she is an Airbnb host and understands how things are. She was very understanding, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to the Airbnb community as a guest.
Excellent guest, very helpful and polite, we would like to have you again in our hotel
It was an absolute pleasure to host Joanna. She treated me to dinner the first night she arrived and I was instantly struck by her strength and intelligence. I definitely intend to see her again, when visiting New York. Looking forward to hearing more about her adventures in journalism.
As a friend, I've stayed with Joanna in her comfortable Williamsburg apartment many times and I'm always humbled by how friendly and accommodating she is. The guest room is enormous by New York standards – complete with a couch and a large desk – which is great if you're planning to get any work done while you're in the city or just need a place to escape to. It also enjoys fantastic sun throughout the day.
The place is just a short walk from some of New York's best and hippest bars and restaurants, and it's dead easy to get to Manhattan – you have the pick of several subway and bus lines, or you could just walk over the Williamsburg bridge, which is practically next door.
Joanna is excellent company – always good conversation, full of ideas for what to do around town, and always considerate of your comfort, privacy, and security.
I would recommend her without hesitation to any prospective AirBNBers.
