L'appartement de Joyce est superbe et pratique, dans un immeuble de standing équipe d'une salle de sport et d'une belle terrasse avec une vue panoramique. Très calme, c'est idéal pour venir à New-York : métros à 150 m, superbe supermarché Whole Food Marketing a 5 minutes, plusieurs restaurant à proximité... En moins de 30 minutes on est à Manhattan et à 1 heure de JFK.
Si on ajoute la gentillesse de Joyce qui est toujours joignable et donne de bons conseils, c'est tout simplement parfait.
Better Than A Boutique Hotel
My family and I stayed at Joyce's wonderful apartment between Christmas and New Year's Eve. It could not have been a nicer experience.
The building, itself, appears to be brand new. The well lit and appointed lobby is welcoming; having the vibe of a boutique hotel. Couple this with the large furnished rooftop deck, with it's fantastic views of Brooklyn and Manhattan, plus a well equipped gym and you quickly realize that few establishments can compete with what Joyce has to offer.
However, it's Joyce's actual unit that is a step up from most hotels. Her generous one bedroom offers more room and amenities than most hotels. It's large windows allow for a lot of light that adds to the spacious feel. The balcony has great views of Manhattan, despite only being on the fourth floor. Street noise was non existent.
The kitchen is modern and roomy with new full sized stainless appliances. There is a Bosch washer and dryer IN THE UNIT, not down the hall. We were able to watch TV on her flatscreen via an iPad (via our own adapter), though she also has a (website hidden) Chromecast. Her WiFi was fast according to our sixteen year old.
Most importantly, the bathroom is new. The tile work is clean and modern as are the fixtures. Water pressure is terrific and is hot on demand.
One of the apartment's best features is Keiko, Joyce's cat. She is sweet, affectionate and playful. Being former "cat people", we were looking forward to staying with her. She couldn't have been a better roommate.
The Gowanus / Park Slope location was virtually perfect. It is a short two block walk from a subway stop with three train lines. Plus there is a very well stocked bodega on the corner which we visited several times.
Being our first airbnb experience, we had no idea what to really expect. After staying at Joyce's apartment, I can say it surpassed all of my expectations. It is a real gem.
Thank you, Joyce.
