I'm a yoga teacher and I love traveling and meeting new people, eating good food, outdoor adventures, nature and photography, music and movies, learning languages.
Although I was not able to meet Alexandra personally she was a great host and her friend Cristina really made a big effort to make everything pleasant and welcoming. She even left food for me on my first night! That was awesome. There was a problem with a fellow tenant (to say that she was a total killjoy would be an understatement, sadly) however Alexandra was always there (via email) to attempt to sort it out. Cristina was also a great help out here too. Alexandra always sent me emails to check in on how things were so that was well appreciated. Bathroom is big by NYC standards. As for the area it is very quiet and peaceful and there are many nice local shops to pop into. The subway is indeed very nearby (3 minute walk tops, if you walk slow).
One very minor gripe: the kitchen utensils are a little sparse and quite worn. So if you want to cook (which I did a lot of) you might feel a little limited. Although that being said, it's not a huge inconvenience. Everything works!
A very pleasant stay as it was nice to escape the madness of Manhattan and retreat to peaceful Clinton Hill.
My overall experience was good. I had some troubles during my stay in the apartment but I could solve them with her help.
I wasn't able to meet Alexandra in person, as she was traveling out of town, but she corresponded promptly with me and made sure I had no trouble getting into her place. Her room was spotless and just as pictured. It was very conveniently located for me, steps away from a lovely restaurant, bakery and deli, and a very short walk to the subway. Alexandra's flat-mate was super-helpful. She was very easy-going, friendly, and helped me get my bearings. She also made sure there was an ample supply of coffee (thanks!). I would definitely stay here again - thanks Alexandra!
Alex and her friend were great guests to host. Friendly, easy communication and they left the place in perfect shape! Have back anytime!
Alexandra arrived late at night and left the next afternoon, so it was a short but truly wonderful visit for us. Alexandra is a truly interesting person, both to get to know and to host. She filled our home with lovely energy, was a pleasure to talk to, and left the room nice and tidy. We hope to see her back. She is a highly recommended guest, and we can´t wait to have coffee in New York.
Alexandra was friendly, nice, and easy-going. She always tried to keep the room clean, especially on the day when I had a house party. Alex, many thanks for your cooperation!
Non ho avuto la fortuna di incontrarla: lei ha incontrato mia madre per le chiavi. E lei l'ha trovata splendida, una ragazza garbata e molto simpatica.
Posso dire che ha avuto un totale rispetto della casa.
Insomma un ospite da rivolere in casa.
I've known Alex for 7 years now. She's a great friend and takes incredible care of people. She's warm, intelligent, caring, and welcoming. She can make anyone feel at home in a matter of minutes. She's incredibly generous and anyone would be lucky to stay at her place.
