My wife and i took a much needed weekend get-away for her 30th birthday and totally loved this little place! Maya was great at getting back via text and answering any questions we had. We look forward to coming back or maybe trying out one of Maya's other properties. Cheers!
Fabulous location for subway, restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques. The apartment bedroom is in the lower level, accessible by a very narrow spiral staircase. We made one trip down and up a day. We could not navigate luggage down there and the only bathroom is up the spiral stairs. There is not a microwave which would have been nice for warming leftovers and coffee. There is also no TV which only mattered because of the Olympics. Other then that, it was as described and quite charming.
This apartment worked out great. Loved the location, really safe and friendly area. We would easily stay here again and recommend it to friends.
We had the most wonderful time at the Oakhill Lodge. We needed a break from the hustle and bustle of NYC, and even covered in 3 feet of snow, this was the most wonderful mini vacay! The house gets flooded in light during the day. They have a fantastic full kitchen to make your dream meals. The house is cozy with comfortable beds, a warm fire and a comfy couch. I imagine this house, with a pool and a BBQ is amazing during the summer! We're definitely going to be renting it again!
Lovely place. Particularly cold winter meant that I had to bundle a bit inside. The place was exactly as described and great for what I needed. Restaurants right next door meant an easy dinner and delicious breakfast. Looking forward to a stay during warmer temperatures to enjoy the beautiful garden.
This was my fifth time renting from Maya (if that's not a ringing endorsement, I don't know what is!), and my first time staying in the sweet historic duplex. It certainly was sweet, and I was more than happy with everything. Maya is a truly wonderful host. Everything is always very clean, comfortable and well-decorated/designed. Yet another amazing stay! I couldn't ask for anything more.
Was a beautiful Apartment, my two artists were very happy
Thank you Maya for being great
I would highly reccomend your home
As was the case with my stay at Maya's other location in Greenpoint, everything was spot-on. Lovely, tastefully decorated, and communication was great.
The only downside was the occasional noise. The listing indeed says: <>
However, the windows were closed (its was around 20 degrees my whole stay--the apartment is warm), but on one night trucks were idling very loud starting at 2:45 a.m. Thanks heavens I had earplugs, but even then it was LOUD. This happened on one other night, too.
And then, on a few other nights, had sporadic loud patrons of the restaurant downstairs rudely celebrating their Greenpoint hipsterdom as they left the restaurant. (Meow….) Or whatever it is that caused them to be really rude at 12:30 a.m. Regardless of the "source," they kept me awake.
This is beyond the normal pale of normal NYC apartment/hotel room noise bleeding in. I would strongly recommend that Maya install another pane of glass/Lexan on the windows, something that would greatly cut down the noise, and would also help insulating the place, lowering that cost. Again, I was very comfortable, temperature-wise.
The bathroom: I expected that having to step outside the door of the apartment would be a problem/inconvenience, but it isn't at all. I never saw Alex (on the third floor) at all, and you don't feel that you're going into a public hallway." It's not quite as warm as the apartment proper (again, it was around 20 deg. for most of my stay), but could be little warmer.
Again, all-in-all, a fantastic place that's highly recommended.
Staying in Maya's lovely little apartment for a week was great. The space is really cute and light filled and has everything you would need. It was very clean and Maya very generously provides any supplies you may need as well as a very helpful guide to Greenpoint and Williamsburg.
Greenpoint is a wonderful neighbourhood, it feels very local whilst still having some amazing cafes and shopping and is an easy walk to Williamsburg. It's about a 15-20 minute subway ride to the island with one transfer.
We had a freak snow storm during our stay so the basement area where the bedroom is did get a bit cold but there is an additional heater supplied which does warm up the space a bit. Also if you have a bulky suitcase, you may find it difficult to get it down the little staircase but there are cupboards provided on the top level.
I would definitely recommend Maya's place for anyone who wants a "local" experience of New York. It's beautifully decorated and close to so many little gems. Thanks Maya!
My friends and I loved staying at Oakhill lodge this winter and highly recommend it. The house is beautiful and really nicely decorated. The beds are all super comfortable, and the large windows and views are incredible. We can't wait to return in the summer to use the pool and deck!!
Communication with Maya and Mark was easy and great, they sent us a lengthy and useful house manual before our trip. We had everything we needed, and wished we had stayed longer. :)
Maya & Mark are friendly people, they have left the apartment in perfect order and (website hidden) was really a pleasure to have them as guests.
Easy to converse with and very respectful of my place. Maya and Mark left the place cleaner than they found it. Would highly recommend them.
Maya and Mark were simply wonderful guests to have stay at the apartment. It was a pleasure to have them. Everything went smoothly - communication both before and during the stay and meeting up, they are genuinely really lovely people. They really looked after the apartment, it was left both amazingly clean and tidy. I would not hesitate to recommend them highly to any other host and would welcome them back to Bath if they were ever in the country again.
Maya booked a couple of her own air bnb guests in my place because of a last minute scheduling change. She was extremely easy to communicate with and her guests were perfectly lovely. It was obvious to me that she takes very good care of her guests and making sure they are well taken care of. It was a pleasure. Thanks Maya!
Maya's a great guest! Very easy to communicate with and a pleasure to have around the apt.
Maya’s place is a second home, a home away from home. I wish I could live here permanently. I’ve stayed there numerous times, sometimes with family members and friends, and will continue to come back as long as she allows me to. The space is aesthetically amazing and warm, fascinating actually, while practical and oh so comfortable. Maya is a brilliant, welcoming and reliable person, she always makes everything so easy to deal with. I wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else in New York City. The location became one of my favorites, two minutes from subway, stores, restaurants and all conveniences, while resting on a quite breezy street. Thank you Maya, you’re a dear friend and the coolest hostess. Can I have your home?
i stayed at maya's duplex and felt immediately at home. she is super easy to deal with and there were no problems getting the key or any other issues.
the house is clean and has a great roof-deck with amazing views.
close to the L or G train, but i took the ferry to get to the city which is just a few blocks away.
Maya is an extraordinary hostess and human being. Her rental space is aesthetically unique, charming and comfortable and Maya goes out of her way to make sure her guests have everything they need. I can strongly recommend an opportunity to stay in this great neighborhood, in a safe and tranquil home that will serve all your needs and more!
maya has a great townhouse with two duplex units just a few blocks from our loft building. we recently recommended her place to a friend of a friend and he was super happy with the apartment. clean, sunny, well-equipped and nicely decorated, plus excellent location and maya is a sugarduck!
Maya's sweet spot in Brooklyn was a absolute treasure find for my friends who recently visited from Germany. They had spend the first night disappointed in a cold, impersonal hotel but after staying at Maya's charming and welcoming home they both felt they had experienced something "truly special" wishing they could stay longer and promising to recommend Maya's to any friends visiting NYC. It is a gorgeous getaway that Maya runs with heart and soul. She is the real treasure! Thank you Maya!
