The loft looks exactly like the pictures - beautiful, spacious and charming. We stayed there during the weekend of our wedding at the Greenpoint Loft just a half-a-block away and it was super convenient. It's steps away from the waterfront and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants around. Maya was easy to communicate with.
My sister and I had a wonderful time at Maya's storefront apartment - it was the second time I'd stayed in one of her rentals and both times were brilliant. The storefront is beautiful and very cosy - it was the perfect retreat from the cold after a day exploring. The bath/shower has very hot water, and the bed was extremely comfortable.
Transmitter Park is on the doorstep, which has amazing views of Manhattan. Greenpoint is the perfect area to stay in, and has wondering restaurants and cafes nearby - we used lots of the recommendations on Maya's list! Baked treats from Ovenly (a couple of doors down) were delicious, and we got pizza at Paulie Gee's twice.
Maya was extremely flexible and helpful on our last day when we had to leave our bags in the apartment for a late flight. Thanks so much, Maya!
Maya's apartment is very comfortable and we especially appreciated the nice clean bathroom and kitchen area. The spiral staircase to the bedroom was not a problem for us. This would also be a nice apartment for a lengthy stay. Very convenient to subway and to lots of good markets and restaurants in the Greenpoint neighborhood. Easy communication with Maya for arrival and departure as well as contact number for any questions.
I really enjoyed this! third time back to Greenpoint, which I like always more and the postion of this River Storefront is really unique. It is just beside a little park from which you can see at your left the "Freedom Tower" and at your right the "Empire State Building"!
The pictures in airbnb show precisely what you get. It is stylish and nevertheless functionally good. I love the bathtube in the living room with view in the garde. I loved the big storefront that gave me the impression of being connected with the world outside. I definitely will come back (if I do not decide to use some of Maya's other properties) :-)
A brilliant location in Greenpoint, Brooklyn! After always staying in Manhattan on previous visits to New York, we decided to try Brooklyn and I will always stay here for future visits! Maya was very accommodating, especially on our late check out and her map that she provided of local shops, restaurants and bars was excellent. I can only highly recommend that you stay here.
Maya was a great host + the apartment is beautiful. We appreciated the extra attention to detail; the map of the neighborhood, car service number, the great vintage furniture. We had a fantastic time + would definitely stay here again!
Beautiful apartment in a great bohemian part of the city. I wish we could have moved in permanently.
Maya was a pleasure to deal with (quick replies to emails) and even printed us out a map of dozens of great stores, venues and restaurants in the area. It was cozy and warm, even in 20 degree evenings, with a very comfy bed. Only thing I'd recommend is earplugs as the sound from the street can travel in rather clearly.
Beautiful apartment, fantastic neighbourhood and attentive host. Would definitely recommend, without hesitation.
I used to live in this neighborhood and I have to say I'm jealous I never got to live in a place like this. It's a beautiful spot, and everything you need from food to coffee to transportation is easily accessible from here. Greenpoint is one of my favorite neighborhoods in NYC and this is a great place to experience it from.
Maya was a great host...made sure we got in alright and then let us be until it was time to hand off the keys at the end.
My only criticism regarding the spot was that the shower situation is a little awkward. You have to hold the shower head above yourself and set it down for a free hand to wash. With lots of gaps in the shower curtain panes you get the feeling you might lose control of the head and spray water through them onto the floor. But hey it's not a dealbreaker and this is a converted commercial space so you kinda have to make due with things like that sometimes. No biggie!
Such a perfect space! The location is stunning, and the actual duplex is exactly as pictured (if not better). Maya was so personable, helpful, and flexible. She even has a map of the neighborhood with detailed recommendations for restaurants, shops, cafe's, and activities. It's a fairly easy commute into Manhattan on the G or L train. The walk to the L station is a bit farther, but you get to walk past McCarren Park (a favorite) and through the heart of Williamsburg, and the train comes much more often. We even ended up adding an extra night to our trip, we loved it so much! We felt absolutely at home during our stay and can't wait to come back.
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!
