janel was friendly and gracious. Her apt is well situated in East Williamsburg. It is cozy and comfortable and immaculate.
We really enjoyed our entire experience with Janell. Her place is clean, cozy and unbelievably quiet. We were there on a very rainy day and took full advantage of the laundromat at the front of her building to dry our soggy clothes.
Communication with Janell was really easy. Our arrival was delayed and she was extremely adaptable. The neighborhood is great with wonderful restaurants, bars and coffee shops all in walking distance.
I cannot say enough good things about Janell and her lovely place!! This was my first time staying in NYC and i was nervous about being overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle, but Janell's place felt so home-y and welcoming that it wasnt a problem at all. The decor is a wonderful combination of elclectic vintage pie es (she runs a rad Etsy shop) and there's a perfect little courtyard in the back, which she has set up with whimsical lights and a garden. She also has Apple TV and a ton of cookware, so you can crawl up comfortably for an evening in if the citylights aren't calling. On top of all this, Janell was ridiculously accomodating. My car was towed the day I had scheduled my check-out and she opened her place to me for another night AND went to huge efforts to help me find my car. In short, I can't recommend this place enough. Janell-- thank you for naking my first coty experience such a postive one!
We really enjoyed our time in Brooklyn thanks to Janell's apartment. The location was ideal and the place was very clean and comfortable. All the check-in/check-out logistics were smooth and Janell herself was great with communications. It was a just what we needed.
We had a lovely stay. Janell was very kind and accommodating. We love her style and felt very comfortable in her place. Very convenient to all forms of transport and entertainment. Thanks for use of your home, internet, TV, coffee, and more!
Beautiful and quiet apartment in a really convenient location! Meeting the host was a breeze and the place looked even nicer than the pictures. Subway (L line) is less than a minute away, and the neighborhood is loaded with restaurants.
I had a great stay at Janell's apartment with my friend! The place was clean, comfortable and quiet, moreover there was a garden! The neighborhood is loaded with cafes, restaurants and foodmarkets. The apartment is a short 2 minutes walk to the L train. Janell was an absolute pleasure to deal with, timely and effective communications both before and during our stay. I would definitely go back at Janell'apartment for my next visit to New-York!
thank you Janell.
Renting an apartment from Airbnb was a new experience for us, and I have to say we were a little nervous of how it would pan out. We needn't have worried - this was a perfect introduction and it's entirely because of Janell and her beautiful apartment that our five nights in NY were such a pleasure.
The description doesn't do this place justice. It's small, obviously, being a New York apartment, but perfectly proportioned for two people. It's fantastically decorated and I can imagine Janell has had a lot of fun amassing her collection of paintings and other pieces, which give it a wonderfully homely feel. We were immediately at ease when we saw it.
In more practical terms, this place is ideally located in a nice part of Brooklyn, with decent bars and places to eat dotted nearby and a short walk from Greenpoint/ Bedford Avenue where it's impossible not to find somewhere to hang out. The Grand St L-train station is literally 30 seconds from the front door and it's just four stops to Manhattan which might be the main draw for most people. It's surprisingly quiet, with a nice back yard which adds to the space available. There's also an Apple TV, which was a life-saver when it hit 104f on one of our days there and the humidity forced us to hide out until the sun went down.
As for Janell, communication was easy and prompt, she met us right outside the door as we arrived in our cab. The place was spotless, with fresh linen on the bed and fresh towels too - she couldn't have been more accommodating. And while we didn't need her at all, she was available if we had any questions.
Though initially skeptical or going down the non-hotel route, this place couldn't have worked out any better. Even if your budget extends to a midtown Manhattan hotel, I'd strongly recommend checking this place out first.
Janell was very accommodating to our needs and the apartment was really cozy and super quiet! We got an extra set of keys, which was nice and the place is literally steps from the L train. The bed was very comfortable, although the sun comes through the window in the morning, so bring a sleep mask if you are sensitive to morning light, like me! All in all, a great experience!
We had a great week at Janell's spot on Bedford Ave. It was our first time in the US (visiting from the UK), and Janell helped things run smoothly for us, meeting us on arrival and leaving us a great list of tips and local recommendations. Just around the corner from the Grand St L-train stop, it was a perfect location for exploring both Brooklyn/Williamsburg and Manhattan (only around 10 minutes on the subway). The vibe of the apartment is excellent and homely, and it had everything you need including wi-fi and cable (no kettle though - I guess Americans don't drink much tea!)
We would definitely come back!
Janell and her travel companion were wonderful! They replied right away with their arrival information, and had an on time check in. They left the unit is wonderful condition and I look froward to hosting them again.
Janell & her mate were fantastic guests. We had good communication before and during their stay, they left the studio very tidy, followed all the check out guidelines to a T and left me a sweet appreciative in the studio.
Any host should welcome Janell!!
Great people, Nice, quite, Clean, wellcome back anytime
She was wonderful and left my place in great condition.
although I never got to meet her face to face ,she was very pleasant on the phone ,and any other communication I had with her was positive. She left my place in great condition!!
Janell has a great place in Brooklyn. It's stylish and a really easy commute to the city. And it's such a luxury to have an outdoor space when visiting New York! We have been friends for many years, but I also work with her professionally. She is very responsible, honest and a really cool chick that I feel so lucky to know!!!
If you are interested in renting her space, DO IT!! If she's interested in renting your space (she's an avid traveler) let her stay. Either way you will not be disappointed. Janell is awesome on so many levels.
Janell's apartment is very comfortable, unique, has its own backyard and in a great location! Wish it was mine ;)
Janell is a great host and has a sweet pad!
