We were fortunate to book Ksenya's space for a high priority brunch which went extremely well due to Ksenya's flexibility and willingness to collaborate with our needs. Her space is extremely unique and perfect for a 16 person group and could not reflect an eye for design any better. Thank you so much and we hope to see you again soon.
Ksenya's apartment is beautiful. It's all about the view and rooftop vistas of the city. The building is not fancy, but it does have that charm that Williamsburg is known for: very textural, urban, and dirty in a good way.
Guests interested in booking should be warned that the nightly rate as advertised is not for overnight stays at all. We were allowed to stay at the apartment only during the day and had to leave when ksenya returned from work each night. So if you're looking for a place to sleep this is not it and the "nightly" price as listed is not for overnight stays.
The apartment is a top end hotel experience. We stayed at Ksenyas flat for a weekend and had an unforgettable Airbnb-experiance. The flat is not only nicely furnished, it has an industrial atmosphere that we never have experienced before.
The first night we were watching a dramatic thunderstorm swiping by over Manhattan from the window, it was just like sitting in the front seat of New York. The next evening we had a glass of Champagne and watched a breath taking sunset from the rooftop.
We only met Ksenya briefly, she was very down to earth and sweet. She supplied us with all the information we needed (and the wifi was excellent). We went to one of her suggested restaurants in the area, and it was one of the better restaurants we've ever been to in NYC.
The stay at Ksenya's is a memory for life. Thank you for everything!
Ksenya's loft should be called ACE Brooklyn: it's big and bright but restrained and cool in a way similar to the hotelier. It's quiet at night and the Williamsburg bridge, upon which the view is focused, lights up like a Christmas tree and keeps things feeling cozy.
The bed is comfy, wifi is fast, and there's AirPlay speakers for your music. If you detest perfumes, carpet sprays, scented candles and all the other crap that hotels or B&Bs use to foul up the air—there is none. The loft is scent-free, airy, and has big windows that open fully.
Getting around is easy: the subway is a few minutes on foot, Citi bikes are a stones throw, and Uber cars are in endless supply. Everything you'll want to eat is within walking distance but, if you like to cook, Ksenya's got a great kitchen on hand. She also has ridiculously good taste in chocolate and left me a bar of Poco Dolce. The ACE never did that.
Ksenya herself is kind and unfussy. She made me feel at home and quickly answered my texts when I had a question or couldn't find something. (BTW, it's pronounced Ke-sen-ya; I failed on my first attempt.)
My only complaint is that I'm writing this review. I'd prefer you stay away as I want this space all to myself.
I must say Ksenya's space is amazing! A friend and I had our 30th birthday party here and couldn't imagine it turn out any better. Ksenya is sweet, very accommodating and down to earth. We couldn't have asked for more. We have nothing but great memories of our 30th celebration.
Ksenyas Loft ist ein ganz wunderbarer Ort - ideal für eine Woche zu zweit! Die Miete ist nicht ganz billig, aber die Aussicht ist jeden Cent wert. Das Haus liegt unweit von Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Bars und Restaurants, der Anlegeplatz der East River Ferry befindet sich drei Minuten entfernt. Unbedingt besuchen sollte man auch die Dachterrasse, von der aus man eine tolle Aussicht auf Brooklyn und Manhattan geniesst.
I used Ksenya's space for a photo shoot and it was an absolute dream. The space has gorgeous light and is styled beautifully. Ksenya was present for the shoot and was very helpful and has a great eye!
My girlfriend and I stayed here for a couple nights - the hosts were very accommodating. Great location and beautiful apt, definitely worth checking out.
Lovely lovely guest who left the apartment cleaner than she found it. Loved getting to meet her for a little and would welcome her back anytime. :)
Ksenya rented our house for the weekend for a reunion of friends and family from far and wide. It was great to meet everyone and we were delighted that they all enjoyed their stay.. and we were most appreciative that they left the house in good order. Thanks!
Ksenya was with us only for a very short time. She was easy to make arrangements with, very quiet, and friendly. She left the suite as clean as she found it.
Ksenya was an excellent guest. Clean and neat and enjoyable to be around. She is welcome back anytime.
Ksenya was the perfect guest and left the house in good order. Would rent to her again without question.
Ksenya was a great guest. Friendly and nice, quiet and clean. We enjoyed a nice dinner together one night with great conversations. We look forward to hanging out again during her time here in the Bay Area!
Great people, very respectful.
Definitely welcome them again!
I've spent many a fine hour in Ksenya's loft in South Williamsburg, both as an overnight house guest and for dinner parties, brunches, whiskey tastings and other enjoyable and decadent moments. As a host, she has transformed a Brutalist concrete cube with a view into a highly refined and curated space for living, loving and chilling in understated elegance. As a potential guest at your property, she would be responsible, trustworthy and a fine dinner and drinking companion and conversationalist. She's a great friend and I recommend her to you highly.
Has the most enviable apartment I've ever seen. It is beautifully designed, huge and kind of impressive in every way—even to all us designer friends of hers. Plus she is super-cute, sweet, nice, responsible, funny. Kind of amazing!
I've known K. for years, and while I've never rented her apartment from her, I've been to many parties at her apartment, and I can attest to its awesomeness: Fantastic finish out, great decor, and an incredible view.
She designs type for money, sure, but I'm sure she could just easily design interiors as well. She keeps her own place in very good order, so I assume she'd do the same or better for anyone who's home she stayed at.
K. is just the sort of person I'd want to sublet my place to, and her place is absolutely the sort of place I'd want to sublet were I traveling. So, all around, I think airbnb is a great place for me to write a reference for her!
Astute and well-traveled, kind and communicative, K. S is a Good Person indeed.
