Twelve things I couldn't live without: my girls, my books, my freedom, joy, travel, improvisation, new tastes, pen & paper, helpless laughter, stillness & gratitude.

Great place, great host, great neighbourhood : the apartment is all a visitor in NYC could dream. The welcome from Jenny was warmful. We wish we could stay here again. Un endroit délicieux !
Jenny was a fantastic host. The apartment was perfect for our family and it is a great neighborhood. We will definitely stay here the next time we visit.
My stay at Jenny's Townhouse was a fantastic experience. From word go assisting by phone with my taxi driver with no GPS, to providing great advice as to where to enjoy dinner. The surrounding area had a good vibe and a short walk to shops, cafe's and bar's.
The upstairs sunroom was a great place to relax. Jenny is a great host and would definitely stay again.
Jenny's Prospect Heights Garden Oasis was absolutely perfect! It is a beautiful apartment on a quintessential tree-lined Brooklyn street in a great location. We had everything we needed and more - the bed was super comfy, the books wonderful to page through, and the kitchen and bathroom updated and well appointed. Jenny was wonderful to work with - quick to respond, extremely friendly, and always helpful. Should our travels take us back to Brooklyn, we will absolutely stay there again.
You'll love your stay at Jenny's lovely, well-decorated and comforatable brownstone. I easily took the subway near her home with all my luggage. It was an easy walk with lots of shopping, dining and great coffee nearby. Jenny is a sweetheart and always available by quick text if I needed anything. I felt safe in her home and walking at night to and from the subway. I'll be back! Thank you Jenny!
Jenny's apartment was lovely - it's cute and has everything you could need for a perfect weekend. The neighborhood is fun and safe, convenient to the subway for trips into Manhattan, close to the Brooklyn Museum and Prospect Park, and surrounded in all directions by great restaurants, shops, coffee, etc. Jenny was incredibly responsive and available to us via phone/text/in person. She was accommodating, helpful, and flexible. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this apartment to anyone travelling to Brooklyn!
What a fantastic home. And it really did feel like home. Cozy, warm, plenty of space (especially given NY standards). Jenny's place is perfect if you are looking for a safe peaceful respite from your adventures in the city. It is quite close to transportation and many great brooklyn neighborhoods. I felt safe walking in whichever direction. Close to excellent restaurants (ask Jenny for tips) as well as the park and so on. I really appreciated how easy things went...great communication with Jenny.We were sad to leave. We will certainly return for a visit...that is if all who read this dont beat us to it! Oh, and if you are a reader you will no doubt find yourself quite distracted as we did by her excellent taste in reading material. Enjoy!
This was my very first experience with Airbnb and certainly won't be the last, thanks to my wonderful stay at Jenny Douglas' home. Jenny was an ideal host who was very warm, responsive, and fun to interact with. I feel totally safe and welcoming in her beautiful home! Everything was perfect for my stay - comfortable bed and quiet neighborhood, nice home deco, great garden, convenient location...I definetly will stay at Jenny's place again in my future trips to NYC. Thanks, Jenny!
Visiting Brooklyn was the second stage of our planned trip around North East America (we had never visited the country previously) and my wife and I had very good vibes about Jenny and the property she was letting, even before we left England. Why? Jenny's sheer enthusiasm for wanting to host us came across loud and clear in her mailings to us, and her promptness was very reassuring, as was her " I will absolutely make a point of being at home to welcome you when you arrive", and of course Jenny was true to her word, appearing on the doorstep as our taxi pulled up outside her door. And the apartment is just lovely ! Full of artistic touches with Jenny's stamp on them, but a home from home feel as well. The bedroom is comfortable, spacious and attractive on the eye, and looks out onto a garden. The kitchen area is nicely equipped and there is a handy dining area which then gives way to a comfortable living space with TV etc but even more interesting, a wonderful collection of books. Jenny is around when you need her and is never less than super friendly, interesting and enthusiastic. It is an easy commute into Manhattan via Grand Army Plaza train station, just 5 minutes away. My wife fell in love with this property the minute she walked in and never wavered in that view during the 4 nights we stayed. We both agreed that if we hadn't been due to attend a wedding in Galloway, New Jersey, we may still be there now! A final plus is that it is only a short walk to a vibrant shopping area which meets all the needs of those living out of a suitcase including a very reasonably priced same day laundry service at the laundrette, as the English like to call it. All we need now is an excuse to revisit the States and we will once again be booking "our" Brooklyn hideaway.
Jenny has a beautiful townhouse in a great location. The house itself is decorated with care and creativity. The bed, bedding, bedroom and bathroom all are appointed with comfort and cleanliness. A real pleasure.
When Jenny arrived in a storming raining late afternoon and said: cynthia~ I am home ! This is the best compliment I cloud ever get from a guest of my remote isolated home.
Thank you Jenny, it is so nice to see you again and hear your cheerful voice on your smiling face. You are always welcomed to come home.
This is the 2nd time's visit of Jenny a very wonderful and popular host herself on her airbnb in Brooklyn New York. I am more than happy to hear from her that she has a real spiritual retreat here. Thank you Jenny for your kind comments and you are always welcomed to stay here whenever you need another retreat here.
After Knowing that Jenny herself is a host with almost 40 positive reviews, I was very excited with great expectation to meet her. She is such a sweet and open minded lady to host. She was quietly doing her writing retreat here under a raining but peaceful days. I do wish Jenny enjoyed the short country get away at A Space For Your Soul.
Jenny left the cottage in good shape...easy to communicate with as well. She's welcome anytime!
It was a pleasure having Jenny and her daughter for the night. They were on a very tight schedule and Jenny communicated well with me regarding her arrival time. They were both friendly and engaging and they are surely welcome back anytime!
Jenny was a very pleasant and interesting guest. I enjoyed meeting and talking with her. She kept me informed of her travel plans and arrival/departure times and left the place neat and clean. I definitely recommend her.
Jenny was a wonderful guest. We would host her anytime.
We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our time with Jenny and were happy we could provide her a space conducive to her creative work. Ours is a friendship that will, without a doubt, keep growing. Our history, after only a day, already feels rich.
Jenny Douglas is an awesome guest! She is a thoroughly wonderful human being, a delightful presence, a joy to be around. She's a new friend and thank you Airbnb for connecting us.
Jenny is comfortable in her own skin and therefore very easy to be around.
She is warm, funny as hell and a great friend.
I can only imagine that she would be a wonderful hostess. I only wish I lived somewhere else so I could come visit her!
Jenny is great - very responsible and aware and also a lot of fun. I know her as a friend but have no doubt she'd be a fantastic host or traveler / visitor / guest. I'd leave my house keys with her in a minute. -- Ruth
I've known my friend Jenny for several years and see her as one of the warmest people I know. Her background is extensive as a world traveler who I would consider a seeker. Her place is also awesome with great vibes :) I would recommend Jenny not only because she has all the traits of a great guest/host, but to connect with her provides intangibles that can really promote personal growth in anyone.
Jenny is a well-traveled citizen of the world, honest and delightful. I highly recommend her both as a guest and a host, someone you would be lucky to have in your orbit.
