My hosting philosophy is that I want my rental to be a place where I'd want to stay - an oasis in the city where you can rest and recharge. The apartment is your space. Enjoy!
First the good:
Livia was sweet and responsive the small amount we dealt with her (she had someone else let us into the apartment). The second day, we did text her that the sink wasn't draining well, but she couldn't find a plumber.
The studio is large with a separate sleeping area in a fabulously charming (not over developed) area of Brooklyn.
The kitchen is large (for NY) and equipped well enough to actually cook in! We were in NY visiting our son and made a family dinner one night.
Livia has a great collection of vinyl (records) of music from the 60s-80s.
Light and airy with windows that open up and give a nice cross breeze
Substantial heat for when the weather is cold.
Nice, cozy, clean furnishings.
Table large enough for four.
Could have been better:
Bathroom could have been cleaner
Bathtub and bathroom and kitchen sinks didn't drain well, leaving standing water
Shower could only be set on very hot or cold--Livia told me later she'd fixed this.
Dusty/dirty dishes on the dish shelf
Window over fire escape didn't lock
Note: We didn't mind the two flights of steep stairs, but people with health issues should be aware of this.
Cute and cozy apartment.
Absolutely loved our stay here - what a brilliant location amidst all the bars, restaurants and galleries. The apartment is beautifully decorated and Livia is a very attentive hostess. We would really recommend staying here and hope to do so again soon.
The apartment is spaceous, beautiful and very well located. Livia was super nice and always available to receive us and to reply to our queries. Thank you!

We had a wonderful stay in Livia's apartment, it sure is a home away from home. It has everything you need and is located in a super cool neighbourhood. The check-in went smoothly, Livia and her friend provided us with detailed information about everything we needed to know. We would really recommend her apartment!
We had a wonderfull stay at Livia's. I would recommend her place to anyone. It's light and comfy and very charming (just like the pictures in her add). Brilliant recordcollection!! In general I would recommend anyone to stay in williamsburg, and not on Manhattan. It's nice quiet and very cool neighbourhood: very European in feel, lots of lovely cafés, bars, restaurants and shops and only a sub-ride away from manhat.
Liv replied instantly all THE time, and was very helpfull. I would definitely pick her place again! Obrigada again Livia!
I had very good experience at Livia's apartment. It's so well maintenance and every detail is in the right place. If your'e looking for an amazing place to stay in Brooklyn this is the place.
Livia's apartment is beautiful, with brick walls and a separate sleeping space. I was amazed at how big it was, as I've heard New York apartments are notoriously small.
It was clean, the bedding was so comfortable, and since I was visiting in January, I was grateful for how warm the apartment was after doing a long day of exploration in the cold.
The apartment was quiet, and Livia's record collection was a real treat! She even has an audio cord hooked up to her sound system so I plugged in my tablet to watch a movie with great sound.
Livia's place is in a perfect location, close to the many trains including the L train (one stop to Manhattan). Bedford is full of great places to eat, shop, and hang out and I wish I had more time to stay.
I really can't say enough awesome things, I highly recommend her place and would stay again. Thanks Livia!
We had such a great stay at Lívia's wonderful apartment & although Lívia wasn't able to meet us herself, she was easy and eager to communicate in the lead up to our stay & her friend was waiting to greet us when we arrived, providing a smooth checkin. The apartment is well equipped, and although we didn't use the kitchen that much, it had pretty much all the stocks you needed. The bed was super comfortable, much needed after a long flight, and the place has a really homey vibe. It's well located, only a short walk to the L line and to a bevy of fabulous bars and cafés on Bedford Ave (& you should definitely try the Italian style restaurant next door, it's great). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lívia's place to anyone wanting a great space to stay in NYC. We loved staying away from Manhattan, & Williamsburg is a really funky neighbourhood & at Lívia's you're in the thick of it! Thanks for everything Lívia!!
It was truly a joy to have Livia and friends stay at our country getaway! Obviously as a host, you put your heart and soul into your home and hope that your guests not only feel and appreciate that effort, but treat it as they would their own. Livia took care of our place in just that manner. Communication was spot on and payment was seamless. Upon our arrival to remove bedding and linens, we found the house and the property in perfect condition. I would highly recommend Livia to you as your next guest!
Hóspede muito tranquila e parceira. Fiquei bem feliz em conhece-la e poder ajudar de alguma forma com o trabalho que fazia em Porto Alegre durante a estadia. Recomendo quantas vezes precisar, e espero que a experiência positiva tenha sido recíproca!
