Christen says the apartment is cozy, clean, and modern with free Netflix, this is 100 % accurate. It's also close to JFK airport, and the L and M train. My son and grandson live in Ridgewood, so when we visited in the past we either stayed in hotels near JFK, or crashed on my son's couch. This is a much better alternative. It's about a $35 cab ride from JFK, so we did not need to rent a car. The apartment is very quiet and spacious for NYC. There is a great coffee shop called Norma's close by. Christen is a gracious host and answers calls and texts very promptly. This place is our new favorite when we visit Ridgewood.
Christen has a wonderful, cozy apartment in a great location. It has a great kitchen, living area and sleeping area. It has easy access to the M train and Ridgewood is a lovely neighborhood. Check out Norma's cafe a few blocks away for both breakfast and for lunch. All in all, we had a wonderful stay. Thanks, Christen.
Great location. Very close to the M train. Very clean appt. with upgraded appliances. Bed too soft for our taste. Christen is a great host.
I enjoyed both short stays with Christen, the first time I've been in the Ridgewood neighborhood. She's friendly and helpful, and her apartment is spacious by NY standards--high ceilings, roomy kitchen, etc, Very easy access to the M train, which in turn intersects with the L, A, C, and J. Access to dynamic Bushwick and uber-trendy Williamsburg is easy, yet the neighborhood is still quiet. If you're visiting people in this part of the city, as I was, you have few hotel options, and this is a great alternative.
Very nice appartement, good location next to the subway station, plenty of shops and a nice cafe around. Easy to use kitchen. Christen's recommendations were very helpful. The bed is very soft: if you like that, the appartment is the perfect choice to spend a few days in NY.
This little apt is clean and modern, in a quiet neighborhood with a ton of shops around, lots of good ethnic places to eat or get food. It's very close to a metro station so it was real easy to get around. I felt safe always. Christen was quick to respond to any of my questions or problems, she was really helpful. My only complaint is that the radiator kept the place WAY too hot, there was no way to control it. I hope to stay there again.
It was a pleasure to meet Christen! She was highly accommodating and gave us tips of her area. We actually went to the market she recommended and ended up purchasing groceries. We initially told her we weren't going to be using the kitchen but we couldn't refuse =) We cooked steak and pasta in her kitchen which had all the plates, pans, utensils you need. Just buy your ingredients in the 24 hr market and your all set. Her apt was especially clean, warm, inviting and well furnished. We had a memorable trip in the city and going back to that apt made it so much better. We loved our stay and we highly recommend her. Thanks again Christen!
Oh thank you! You are welcome anytime!!:)
Enjoyed Christen's apartment, which was sparkly clean and is enormous by NY standards, equivalent to a hotel suite. One teensy tiny thing that was difficult for me, as a reader-in-bed, was that there was no light for reading except the overhead, and the switch was on the other side of the room. This may be because the large and very soft bed took up all the space on that side of the room. Otherwise, delightful neighborhood, delightful host.
We had a good time in New York. We have good and a few less good things about Christen's appartement.
But first to Christen-you were very friendly-thank u for everything.
First of we need to say - for better understanding for other airbnb users-that we're used to very high standards of living in Switzerland. This might be the reason why we are not too overwhelmed and happy like other guests. The appartement was okay, not exactly like our first impression from the pictures in advance-but comfortable. There was enough space for us to live.. the new TV was nice and modern-but without cable TV-so in case someone would like to watch TV or a movie -you are obliged to pay ( apple tv) , so we couldn't use it. The new king size bed was too soft and not comfortable- we had back pain during the hole week. The neighbor in the appartment above was often very loud around midnight. There were a lot of old foods and beverages of other people which have stayed at Christen's before... and the mirrorlight in the bathroom was out of order and was not fixed until we left. The only good things were Christen herself and that the appartement was near the subway station. We don't think we would spend another holiday in Christen's appartment. We tried to give an honest feedback because we think this is how airbnb is most effective and helpful.
Yes there is Apple TV and many, many, many free movies which I explained to you. I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. It is an apartment not a hotel. I'm really disappointed with your comments and will not recommend you further either.
Christina was the best!! She was very busy we hardly saw her. But we did get to chat a bit and she's so lively and sweet. In addition she was clean, quiet, friendly, flexible and followed all our rules. We would have her back any time and recommend her to any host.
Christin is very nice, fun, friendly and out going person. I would Recommend her as a host to any guest. her apartment is clean and very welcoming with stylish furniture.
go a head and book with her so you can experience her accommodation !!!!!
