I am a native New Yorker (born and raised in Brooklyn) and work as a chef.
If you need recommendations for restaurants, bars, shops, etc. I can definitely help with that.
Tessa's place was a haven for my mother when she came to visit in Williamsburg. It's close to the L/G trains, it's on a quiet side street, and it's got every modern amenity you could hope for. Tessa was a wonderful host and really flexible with check-in/check-out times, key exchanging, etc. Very cool, relaxed place. And the tub! You don't find that in many apartments in North Brooklyn :-)
Tessa's apartment is just great! Perfectly located near L and G subway lines, so you can be in downtown Manhattan in about 15 minutes. The neighborhood is so peaceful and friendly, with lots of cool bars and restaurants to discover. The apartment is fully equipped and really quiet, which we appreciated after a busy day visiting Manhattan. Also Tessa was a great host, very helpful and always attentive. We would definitely recommend her place!
Tessa and her apt were both lovely. Located near the subway and great music venues and cool cafes. She even provided coffee and milk. Great area and great host.
I had a great time staying at Tessa's apartment in Wburg! She was super nice and helpful, and was flexible in terms of timing so that I could meet her to pick up keys as soon as I got to NYC (early in the morning, I took a redeye from the West Coast). Her apartment is really cute and perfect for a solo traveler or a couple - nice sitting/living area, queen bed, huge beautiful bathroom (with great shower), and a compact but equipped kitchen. The location is super convenient -- very close to the L train, which provides easy access to the Village and Union Sq. in Manhattan. I would definitely stay here again!
Not only is the apartment lovely, so is the host. Tessa is so warm and welcoming and chill. We loved our stay at her place, it had all the amenities we needed...kitchen is super cute and modern, bathroom is HUGE and fancy with two sinks, the location is ideal with so much within walking distance, and parking was easy as well. Couldn't have asked for more. Thanks so much, Tessa!
What a great experience we had staying here! We lived in NYC years ago, but had never explored Williamsburg. Loved it! And Tessa's apartment was the perfect home base. Comfy bed, big bathroom, quiet neighbors, great location ... what more could you want? And Tessa was so welcoming! She even emailed us a huge list of places to check out. Next time we go back to New York, we're heading straight for Tessa's!
Tessa was a wonderful host. Her home is warm and inviting and exactly as represented on this site. We loved coming home every night and sitting on the terrace enjoying a cup of tea in the morning. It is in a wonderful location very close to the L train which provides direct service (2 stops) to the city. She provided us with a list of restaurant and bar recommendations and was more than happy to help us with any help or other suggestions we needed. I would love the chance to stay with Tessa again! :)
This was my first experience with Airbnb and I feel fortunate to have been so lucky. Staying at Tessa's was perfect. She has a very nice, comfy apartment -- I immediately felt right at home! The location is great -- very close to the L and near lots of cafes and restaurants and other things to explore. Tessa herself is very nice and a great host. I highly recommend staying here!
Tessa's place was lovely and just what we were looking for. The apartment itself was a great size for couples or singles alike. She was very hospitable with suggestions of local places to go and eggs for breakfast. The location was great, too - just a block or two away from the L train. Overall, it was spot on.
Tessa's place was lovely, bright, well furnished and clean. Tessa met us when we arrived and gave us the key and gave us a drink and a tasty snack which was very appreciated. She gave us a good list of reccomendations for the area and further a field. We were lucky enough to get some great weather and really enjoyed having a beer on the balcony after a long day of walking. All in all a great place to explore williamsburg and NYC from- loved it and would love to do it all again- Amy and Bob
Tessa is a great person! She is always in a good mood and loves learning about the culture and visiting new places.
We enjoyed meeting her.

Tessa was a wonderfully fun guest to share time with. We both love food so we had a lot to talk about, and she was very happy going to the local market and cooking some tasty Peruvian dishes with our chef friend.
We wish her the best and for sure recommend her to future hosts.
