Young friendly outgoing female from Paraguay. Married with two kids living in this amazing city.
For people coming to Bushwick, this place is perfect. It had just what we needed; a short walk to the L station, a bottom floor, a comfortable memory foam bed, small clean bathroom, little kitchen with all we needed. It is in a safe area, has no TV, warm steam heat, all you can use hot water, a fast enough internet connection, and happened to be one block from my daughter's place. Perfect!
If you want more than simplicity or to be closer to NYC, then this might not be as perfect for you as it was for us. But we loved it and would stay there again. The price was fair, the place nice, and everything went smoothly.
The restaurant they also own is nearby and is worth checking out as well! We loved the food. Thank you for being such a great host. This was our first air bnb stay and I was a bit uncertain about it. I would do it again, it is a great way to save money and have a comfortable place to stay.
Sari Molina-Lemir was a very nice host, timely meeting to exchange keys and she made several contacts with me during the week to check on me. The apartment needs lots of upgrades and repairs. The common entry hall wall was nasty and I realize Sari doesn’t have control of this area, but makes coming “home” every evening unappealing.
There isn't a place in New York that I would recommend more than this charming apartment in Brooklyn. It sits in an extremely safe neighborhood and is less than a 5 minute walk from the L train. We were extremely surprised by the size of the apartment (it's very big!) and couldn't have asked for better, more kind hosts. Sari and her husband were absolutely wonderful! They were extremely hospitable (considering we booked the apartment less than 24 hours in advance) and helped us out in any way possible.
This was our first Airbnb experience and you can certainly guarantee it won't be our last.
We really enjoyed staying in Sari's apartment. We stayed for two weeks in September 2013. The apartment was clean, comfortable and really convenient for getting into Manhattan, particularly into the East Village and Chelsea.
There are also great cafes and restaurants around the corner including Sari's Arepas Guacuco. There's also a great farm to table restaurant, North East Kingdom, which is definitely worth a visit. The organic grocery store also does amazing sandwiches. Me and my husband shared one for breakfast every morning.
We had major flight changes which meant we arrived much ealier than expected, but Sari was very accomodating, letting us into the house early in the morning so we could sleep off our jetlag, when we were due to arrive in the afternoon.
This was our first time in New York and our first Airbnb experience. Everything went smoothly and we'd definitely recommend staying at Sari's place.
The apartment was spacious and clean, and it was located very close to the underground so it was very easy to get to and from the city.
I was very pleased with the apartment. It was spacious, very clean and Sari was a pleasant host.
I will say this is in a very community oriented neighborhood- in the summer people were out on their porches, the park is right across the street....and it IS the city- so it may not be for everyone, especially if you expect and want a quiet getaway. However, it just reminded me of home. I hung out with the locals at night and by day perused the neighborhood full of great restaurants, art, and domino games happening on the sidewalk. Sari and her husband also have a family restaurant right round the corner with the best arepas!!! @ Guacuco Arepera. I will be back.
Sari y su marido fueron muy amables con nosotros, el departamento es muy grande y lindo, tiene todo lo se necesita y una linda vista al parque. El barrio es ideal para gente joven, cerca de bares restaurantes muy lindos. Cerca del subte, en 20 minutos se llega a Manhattan. Hablan español lo cual lo hace mas practico para nosotros. Los recomiendo a toda la comunidad!
Sari and her husband were great with us. The apartment is big and clean, ant it has a great view of the park. The neighbourhood is perfect for young people looking for cool bars and restaurants. Near to the L subway and Manhattan. We reccomend it to all the comunity!
Sari and her husband were very warm and welcoming from the beginning ! Saris husband even showed us around bushwick which is a pretty cool and interesting place to be. Everything you need is in walking distance.

The apartment was nice, clean and quite ! We would definitly recommemd saris place !!
We had an excellent experience staying at Sari's home! They were very hospitable from the beginning and made sure we were comfortable and content with our stay, especially the first few days. They told us a little bit about the area, places to eat, where the subway was, etc. Super sweet, helpful, and genuine! As far as the apartment- it was clean, clean towels, and other bathroom/kitchen necessities. Everything we needed was right there. It's much more spacious than other NY apartments and comfortable for the three of us that stayed. The area, Bushwick, was very fun- it's neighborhood-y, plenty of shops, bars, restaurants and only a 15 minute train ride to Manhattan. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone else.
