I am a 31-year-old artist and environmentalist. I love to travel and do so pretty often. And I like ice cream. A lot.
Absolutely great space! Excellent daylight and close to the A train - into Manhattan in 25 minutes and walking distance to some good restaurants. We slept great and really enjoyed ourselves. Felt safe. Sarah was an awesome host - even gave me some tips on finding housing for my move to NYC. She also let us add on an extra night at short notice! Communication was quick and she was always there to answer questions and help Us out! Stay here if you wanna check out Brooklyn, get to Manhattan fast and want an awesome arty space to stay.
I stayed with my friend Rhys and we had the best time. Sarah is just fantastic, so friendly, so flexible, she really is a gem! The place is in a great location (we spent a lot of time in both BK and Manhattan and it was really easy to get around). Everything was clean, the beds were comfy, and we loved the decor (so cool and quirky)! It was just a really lovely apartment all round. I would definitely recommend you stay here, hopefully I will be back soon!
Sarah is a great and helpful host, and very flexible with both checkin/out times and the key exchange. She helped us with all of our questions (nearby opportunities, parking space, car service to get to the airport).
The subway is indeed in a 2-3 minutes walk from the apartment, so it's easy to get into Manhatten. The LIRR is in front of the building, but it's not bad (meaning noisy), we could fall asleep easily but also we were quite tired at the end of the days so it wasn't difficult. :)
We were a bit afraid of the neighbourhood (checked out on (website hidden) street view), but we had no troubles at all, people we talked to were kind and helpful, and the area wasn't bad.
The only thing we could make use of would be a microwave in the kitchen.
We stayed at Sarah's place for the weekend of the Red Hook Crit, with lots of space for our bikes, comfy beds, and a great location, we would definitely come back next time we are in the city!. Thanks!
Sarah is a fantastic host. She was very flexible about meeting for the key exchange, and she was very responsive to my emails and texts. Her apartment is amazing. The location is very convenient--not only is there plenty of free street parking (except when there is street cleaning), but the A/C subway line is close by too... Just a couple of blocks away. The apartment is charmingly decorated. It was fun because I felt like for the weekend, I was living in NYC again. I would recommend Sarah's place to anyone, and I would definitely stay here again!
Sarah was awesome. She was super easy to communicate with - very responsive. In person she is just as fabulous as she is in writing , too! She was also very flexible about key-exchanges and check-in/check-out which made it super easy for me.
Her apartment is the perfect Brooklyn loft. It's very spacious and very welcoming. It has everything you would want or need. It is ideally located (especially for me - my sister's apartment a mere 10 blocks away!). The subway is right there, as is the LIRR. It also felt very safe and secure. The gated community is a nice touch for security.
The neighborhood has a great Trinidad flare and there's lots of quick food and easy access to groceries down the road. I liked the neighborhood - yes it's Brooklyn, be safe, but even walking to the subway at night I felt just fine in the neighborhood.
Me encanto el lugar, muy cerca del subway y del LIRR y a un paso de Manhattan.
Response from Sarah:
English translation: I loved the place, very close to the subway and the LIRR and a step away from Manhattan. I highly recommend it.
Sarah was a wonderful and accommodating host. She made us feel right at home. She is quick to get back to you and answer any questions. The place was clean, comfortable, and close to the subway. I would stay there again.
Sarah's apartment was the perfect home base for our NYC adventures! It is super-convenient to public transport & Sarah was a helpful and responsive hostess. The area felt a little sketchy at first to us non-urbanites, but we had no trouble at all, even at night.
The reservation was canceled 21 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Sarah was a great guest. Easy to communicate with and extremely trustworthy. I am bummed I didn't get a chance to meet her in person because I was out of town but I felt comfortable having her stay. She even left a lovely thank you note :-) Would definitely recommend!
...glitter flying around and 7 or 8 wigs in the trash can. Sarah and her friends are in the party business. But the party didn't happen in the flat, so all the better for them being multicolored beings. She was totally responsible regarding the apartment and how it was handed back.
I highly recommend Sarah's apartment! The apartment is lovely, spacious and very clean. Sarah was very helpful and trustworthy, and overall an awesome host. :)
Stay at Sarah's! (Or let Sarah stay with you!) She's a truly lovely person -- friendly and responsible and fun -- and you can count on her to be on top of all details and logistics. Her apartment is beautiful and whistle-clean, and she leaves a trail of happy wherever she goes. We would all be lucky to have a host (or guest) so great!
