Maya is an excellent host and communicated very clearly with us all the information we needed about staying in her apartment. I would recommend her place to any of my friends!
My boyfriend and I stayed in Maya's cozy appartement for three nights! And I wished we could have stayed even longer! We felt in love with Maya's appartement and the neighborhood!
The location is very convenient, close to Manhattan and only three blocks away from the subway station. The neighborhood is beautiful, safe and peaceful. We felt really save there! And the area has everything you may need just steps away. (good restaurants, bars and shopping places, nice parks!) Maya prepared a detail map of the neighborhood that was very useful. She was easy to deal with and everything was organised perfectly. Maya was very responsive to emails and requests:) We had a great time! and we would love to stay there again if we come back to NY! Thank you Maya!
Charming! This lovely place looks just like it does in the photos. Very clean and comfortable, with a personal style and very tasteful decorating -- really an adorable place and the location is great. Walk down Bedford and there's tons of stuff to see and do -- great restaurants and cafes as well as lots of small shops to dip into. We ran into a great ice cream truck that had the best vegan ice cream I've ever tasted! Found our way to Manhattan easy via either the G, L train or ferry over. Easy to get around Brooklyn by walking or jump on the bus (we did to get to Brooklyn Art Museum / Prospect Park). Maya was very helpful (provided an awesome annotated map to use while there) and very prompt in communicating. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
I had a great time at the storefront. It is very well located and comes with a secret garden that is a delight. Maya provides a great environment and communication is a breeze. It is exactly as described and the photos are very accurate. I highly recommend as a magic place to stay in Brooklyn and hope to visit again.
We loved the apartment! Spacey and beautifully decorated in a minimal way. Bathroom is private but you have to step out of your door into the hallway, but no problem for us since only Alex upstairs is the other one in the building. Maya and Alex both were helpful if we had any questions. Wifi was sometimes not available. One issue however is the noise from across the street where trucks collect from a warehouse starting at very early hours, and since it was hot we had our windows open and thus were woken up several times a night. Taxis were easy to get even though the area is a little off from more busy Williamsburg, but still very cosy with plenty of fun spots. Favorite was breakfast at Five Leaves a short eight min. walk away. The area around Whyte hotel is fun for a Saturday night.
The G train which is close doesn't drive very often, be ready for waiting 10-15 min, but L train is much better, about 15-20 min walk on Bedford Ave. which is a great area to hang out. (Although rush hour the L train was horrible with tons of people crammed into the carts!) Also if you like to walk and not in a hurry, you can access Manhattan via Williamsburg bridge, takes about 1-1,5 hours depending on where you're going. Getting a cab to get home from Manhattan at night was never an issue either.
Maya's apartment was really great to stay at. It was both tasteful and comfortable, with a location that is on a quiet street but super close to everything. I especially loved her hand-written notes on all the best places to go in Greenpoint! It was a wonderful stay.
The apartment was ideal for our trip. It comfortably slept 3 friends and was really beautifully furnished and spacious. We liked it so much we all wanted to live there. It's set in a great location on a quiet tree lined street so was quiet to sleep, but was literally a few blocks away from a really bustling neighbourhood with lots of tasty restaurants and interesting nightlilfe. I'd definitely recommend staying, its great value for money and Maya was at hand to answer any questions etc. Would use this apartment for a return visit!
The appartment was exactly as discribed, actually it was a bit bigger than we expected. The garden was a great thing to have, especially during hot days. Everything was organised well, we could also leave the luggage at a friends (of Maya) place, since our flight didn't leave until the evening.
There are some noises from the other side of the street, where there are some trucks coming in, in the early morning, the restaurant next door wasn't a problem at all (and had realy good food!!). by the way, i was never at a location with AirBnB where you had a great Restaurant and Backery on the same block, so that was great. It was also a good location for exploring Brooklyn... I already miss the smell of Ovenly-Backery, and i'm just back home since 2 days! Thanks for the stay, Maya!
We had fantastic days at Brooklyn! The apartment was great: tidy and well equipped, in an interesting neighborhood with a lot of good shops, cafes and restaurants, close to the metro. The communication was without any problems. Thanks a lot Maya!
Maya's place is a haven. The work and details she has put in this store is simply amazing.
The store was cosy and the garden is a treat this time of the year.
Maya was easy to communicate with and returned promptly with any issues.
The Greenpoint area is cooler and more relaxed than Williamsburg. If you go there...stay at Maya's store !! *****
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!
