My daughter & I were greeted at the elevator by George, carrying his frisbee (we're dog lovers so this was a bonus). Such a happy boy! He led us towards the apartment where Karin's smile said it all. This is why we use Airbnb.
Karin gave us the run down: train station here, supermarket there, guide books over there and told us to call if we need anything.
The apartment was very clean and it reflected Karin's personality/style. There are beautiful textiles & paintings, family photos, including George and curios that make this apartment rock. The high ceilings bring in natural light. The kitchen was stocked well (Karin had even brought fresh bread & cider), bathroom had all the amenities w/more than enough towels and there was plenty of closet space. I love linens & Karin does too! It's real treat to slip into a comfy bed w/nice linens. My daughter has back issues but she slept comfortably on the airbed.
The building, a former hospital, is well-kept and one needs to be buzzed into the building. The diverse neighborhood is bustling with energy. Public transit is close. I would definitely stay at Karin’s home again.
We had a fantastic trip to New York, staying in Karins apartment. It was clean and had ample space! She was kind enough to wait for us on arrival even though our flight was two hours late. She kindly left us fresh bread and fruit. The subway to central Manhattan was 7 minute walk up a main street, and about a 30 minute ride to grand central station . We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone travelling to New York.
Karin was a great host who was very understanding and flexible with check in due to our flight being delayed. Once we all met she made great recommendations on nearby places to check out and things to do in the city. We ended up doing everything she recommended, including the 1/2 marathon. The place itself was beautifully decorated and served as a very comfortable place to recharge at the end of our day. It was exactly what we were looking for in a place.
Karin and the place are great. Cosy apartment! Loves the small details left such as some food and coffee! Location is also excellent, easy to subway and close to many great places.
Pictures match the place perfectly.
Karin was a gracious hostess, and was there to welcome me and review all the necessary details.
Karin was an excellent host! She met us at the apartment and showed us everything we needed to know. The apartment was incredibly cute and cozy. While we didn't spend much time indoors since anything we could want was right outside her door, the space worked great for our family of 4 (we have a 2 kids ages 2 and 5 and she even made sure to set aside DVDs that they would enjoy...VERY nice). With friends close by, we will definitely be calling on Karin again!
Karin was a wonderful host. She was friendly, helpful and provided so much information about the area. We would definitely stay at her place again. Perfect location, great neighborhood and so close to the train.
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.
