I am originally from Uruguay, been living in NY for 11 years now. I work for a modern art Gallery.
Maru was fantastic from start to finish! I highly recommend staying in her apartment!
Before I arrived she sent me a welcome email with details of the area, how to get there, cab numbers, subway information and things to do!
The apartment itself was not only beautiful, warm but very clean. I found Bushwick to be safe and friendly. I must admit that having never been to NYC before, I was a little scared traveling alone. After only a few hours, I felt at home in NYC :)
Bushwick and Williamsburg had lots of cool bars and nice restaurants - if I ever move to NYC, I will move to Bushwick!
Maru was on hand to answer any questions I had throughout my stay.
I highly recommend Maru as a top class AirBnB-er :)
This was my first experience with Airbnb and this Luminous Loft Apt was a very comfortable place to stay and Maru was a very helpful host. Definitely recommendable place close to local life in Bushwick and a short 7-8 min walk to either Myrtle or Morgan subway stations.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Maru was very nice. And her apartment was so clean and comfortable. Thanks again!
We enjoy our stay in Maru's cosy apartment. This is a good location to discovering Brooklyn and Manhattan. Maru was attentive to answer our questions.
Maru's place is nice, well equipped and has a convenient location. In addition, Maru had prepared a list of things and places we could do and go during our stay. It was easy to reach her and she always answered quickly. Don't forget to go to the roof top, the view is amazing! Thank you again.
my stay in the Maru's apartment was excellent! the apartment is well located! the neighborhood is great, with many incredible things around and the proximity to the metro line l is perfect to enjoy the best of manhanthan and Brooklyn.
and Maru is excellent! always available and flexible! Surely be back! Thanks Maru!!
I had my family stay in Maru's apartment over Thanksgiving. They said it was lovely and clean, and key pick-up was very easy. I would absolutely have guests to the neighborhood stay here again.
La surface de ce petit appartement sympathique et original était parfaite pour une personne. Il mériterait un bon coup de peinture fraîche et quelques ustensiles supplémentaires pour cuisiner, mais il a l’avantage de se trouver à 5 minutes à pied de la station Dekalb de la L line à Brooklyn. Compter toutefois 45 minutes jusqu’à Times Square sur Manhattan.
Maru m’a fait confiance et m’a laissé les clefs à mon hôtel, car nous ne pouvions pas nous voir le jour de mon aménagement. Elle m’a laissé aussi des informations sur Brooklyn avec des adresses de restaurants. Elle est tout de suite venue, lorsque j’ai eu des problèmes avec la cuisinière à gaz ou la chasse d’eau et a fait réparer aussitôt. Lorsque j’avais une question ou une autre, elle me répondait très vite. Je me suis bien sentie dans cet appartement, sauf lors de grand froids : quand il y a la bise dehors : il y en a aussi dedans. A l’instar de la plupart des anciens appartements new yorkais, il n'est pas des mieux isolés.
Maru was a perfect host, easily contactable and very helpful. Our train was delayed a little coming in, but she was happy to work around this when handing over the keys.
The place itself is a sweet little spot (bright, clean, cool decor), a minute's walk from the Dekalb stop on the L subway line. This was perfect for getting me and my brother in and out of Manhattan and down the few stops to all the great stuff (food, shops, music, bars) happening in Williamsburg. Not a lot in the area itself but it's so accessible we almost liked a chance to get away from all the activity. Nice coffee shop a block away should be mentioned though!
A spare mattress was great to have too if you are not a couple wishing to share a bed. Good size apartment for two people.
Also we loved having the Netflix and Apple TV in the mornings and evenings, just what you want after a day walking the city!
Would stay again, thank you!
