Karin nous a gentiment accueillis et nous a donné toutes les informations nécessaires pour un bon séjour à Brooklyn.
Karin is sweet and welcoming, and her apartment is lovely and very well-located.
Karin's apartment is just perfect! It's spacious, clean, comfy and beautifully decorated. My husband and I stayed for 4 nights, and had absolutely no problems at all. The weather was freezing cold when we arrived, but Karin's apartment was warm and cosy. It was really nice and quiet, and Karin had thoughtfully bought us muesli, yoghurt, fruit and cookies for our stay, as well as providing clean towels and shampoo, etc in the bathroom, which was a nice touch, especially if you are trying to pack light for a city break!
Karin was really quick to reply to any queries throughout the booking process, and kindly waited around late for us to arrive from the airport, when we were warmly greeted by the adorable George! She was also really flexible with our check out time, which was much appreciated as we weren't in the country long and wanted to make the most of our stay.
Location wise, the apartment was perfect for us. It's in easy walking distance to the subway into Manhattan, or up to Williamsburg. We enjoyed exploring the immediate area, and found some great places for brunch and pizza, and during the winter the Brooklyn Flea is just a couple of blocks away. We felt totally safe coming and going from the apartment night and day.
I highly recommend Karin's apartment, and Karin and George (the dog) as hosts, and would definitely stay here again when visiting New York.
I had a lovely stay in Karin's cozy, beautifully appointed, comfortable apartment. Every interaction I had with her--from emails and texts before I arrived to greeting me at her place when I checked in, to coordinating check out--was pleasant. She responded promptly, and was very accommodating and flexible about details. Karin is warm and welcoming and her extra little touches--from breakfast things and chocolate waiting for me on arrival to the sumptuous bed and bath linens--added to the comfort of my stay.
If anything, the apartment is nicer than in the pictures. Spacious, warm, clean, full of interesting decorative touches, and with a nice little balcony (though it was too cold to use it when I was there).
I loved the neighborhood, which has just the right mix of hip, new cafés and restaurants, conveniences, and urban grit and character. It's easily subway-accessible and a straight shot to lower Manhattan. The building is an historic rehab. The lobby and halls aren't much, but don't let them fool you--the apartment is really terrific, with high ceilings and big rooms. And the building is quiet and clean.
And for anyone who likes dogs, having the opportunity to meet Karin's dog, George, is a definite plus.
I would definitely recommend Karin's place to friends and would stay here again.
Our hostess was extremely friendly and welcoming, as was George (who we greatly enjoyed petting). The apartment was beautiful with great heat and lots of hot water. The bed and couch were comfortable and the apartment was extremely quiet. Lots of parking nearby, close to the M and a good coffee shop. We had a wonderful stay.
Karin's apartment is absolutely beautiful, cosy and warm. She welcomed me and my friend very warmly and gave us great tips on the local area, transport etc. This was such a great place to stay, we felt incredibly at home. There's a big grocery store around the corner, and more delis than you can shake a stick at. It's not far from the subway either. The area is 'up and coming'; nervous types might feel a bit wary at night, but we didn't feel worried at all. The dog is pretty awesome too :)
Great welcome from Karin & George ( her dog). Karin gave us lots of helpful info about the immediate area and the rest of Brooklyn. The apartment was lovely just as pictured and described, only better for real. The area has very good transport links to both Manhatten & Brooklyn. Plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops within easy walking distance of the apartment. Safe area, at no time did we encounter any problems.
Do not hesitate book Karin's apartment, we would again.
Het appartement van Karin is heel confortabel en sfeervol. Wij voelden ons er direct thuis, mede door de verwelkoming van Karin zelf. Het is duidelijk dat Karin zich heeft verplaatst in de behoeften van reizigers. De buurt is prima. Makkelijk om Brooklyn te ontdekken en goede verbinding met de metro naar Manhattan.
Karin was an amazing hostess! We had everything that we needed, easily accessible. The room and bed were super cozy, and Karin has some wonderful artwork dispersed throughout the house. A wonderful place to crash for a long weekend.
Karin's place is truly charming. Her photos do not do the place justice. The exterior of the building, formerly the Nursing training building annexed to the Jewish hospital, has that 'institutional' look, as do the stairs, elevator and hallways. Upon opening the door of her unit? "Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore!" What a beautiful place. And Karin is as charming a host; lots of information; her 'casa' became ours and we loved it. The neighborhood is in 'transition', with all that it entails. We used the subway system exclusively; it was 1/2 a block away. We ate great meals at good restaurants the whole time -- a bit of a waste given her kitchen, fully stocked, at our disposal. Would not hesitate to recommend it, or stay there again. Thanks again, Karin!
