Sylvia was absolutely lovely! The space is exactly the same as the photos, and the area is easy to walk around and enjoy. I would stay again.
Best choice! Very cosy with beautiful paintings and photos on the walls, everything is there ...... Found the atmosphere the photos on Airbnb suggested. Will rent it again!
We loved Sylvia and Andre's apartment. It's airy, bright and beautifully decorated. Comfortable beds, lovely linens, well-equipped kitchen. It's a ground floor apartment but definitely not a "basement". A quiet historic neighborhood with fun little ethnic restaurants and shops just a block away. Prospect Park and subway just a few minutes walk. Hosts were wonderful. I hope to stay there again on our next trip.
Sylvia was fantastic host - so friendly and accomodating. Our party size shrunk down from 4 to 2, and she was gracious enough to reduce our bill without us even asking her to do so..
We stayed in the basement of her brownstone, and it was plenty big enough for the two of us. Four would also fit comfortably. Her place was decorated with some of her paintings which were beautiful. She's talented!
Only reason I'm not rating the stay a "five" is due to cleanliness. It was clean and probably cleaner than any hotel in the area; a little more scrubbing in the bathroom, and I would have rated the stay a "five".
Overall, a wonderful experience. I wouldn't hestitate to stay again.
I highly recommend Sylvia's place to stay. It has plenty of room, it's ultra cute with lovely features and paintings, as you can see from the pics and has everything you need. Plus the hosts are accommodating and helpful. The house is on a quaint street and walking distance to the subway.
I could live here!
Sylvia and her husband Andre were warm and wonderful. They were very understanding when my parents arrived late and communication with them was easy. I would definitely book again.
The hosts were very welcoming and supportive throughout our stay. They helped to give us information about the area.
The street is quiet and people were really friendly.
The shower was fab.
We didn't realize,from the initial information that the flat was on the ground floor, level with the street.
We saw Sylvia's beautiful apartment at the last minute. We were looking to move into the apartment the same day. They responded to our request immediately and was extremely helpful! When we arrived the apartment looked exactly like in the photos! It is a few blocks away from the subway, and direct line to manhattan which was convient. The neighborhood is nice and friendly. Overall we had a great stay and they were great hosts!
A wonderful guest
Sylvia and her family were great guests. They were considerate and enthusiastic guests . I would not hesitate to have them back .
I have known Sylvia and her family for over 6 years. Sylvia is a diverse woman who is devoted to her family, friends and her art. Her home reflects these passions, as it is a welcoming and warm place that is filled with beautiful creations. She is a caring and trustworthy person, who values and respects her relationships. I find Sylvia to be one of the finest people I know and I trust her implicitly.
Sylvia is a wonderful, fun, creative spirit who loves to meet and get to know new people. I have known her for years as an artist, mother, neighbor and friend. She has beautiful family and a beautiful home to share!
