A very nice, centrally located apartment near lots of trains, restaurants and bars. Good sized bedroom, relaxing living room, and easy to use kitchen. My mom who stayed there was particularly impressed by the shower, since it was far superior to the one in my apartment a few blocks away. Lori was very responsive and helpful with getting us the keys and answering any questions. My mom's only complaint was noise because the bedroom faces the street - but as a New Yorker, I can tell you the noise is on the low-end - I would just suggest that if you are used to sleeping in absolute quiet to bring some ear plugs but that is required packing for anywhere in the city.
Such a cute and spacious place! Didn't get a chance to meet Lori, but she mailed us keys before our stay. Apartment is in a really nice building just a few blocks away from a subway stop, many cafes, and Prospect Park is within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again!
Lori was a great host. We didn't get a chance to meet but she send us the keys to Italy.
the apartment was really nice and cozy. The bedroom was brighter and seems bigger than the photos.
The neighbourhood is great - just a few blocks to the subway and 20 minutes to manhattan.
It was a great experience.
This is the second time I've stayed at Lori's place and once again, it was great. It's always spotlessly clean and somehow warm and inviting at the same time. Comfy bed, great kitchen, fantastic location: can't be beat. Lori was very understanding and welcoming despite us getting in at 3 AM after a stressful drive in from Montreal! Thanks again Lori!
Lori was a great host! She was really helpful and friendly always when we needed something. Her apartment is just like the pictures, very cosy, clean and spacious. The neighborhood has everything you could need, and her street is calm (even on weekdays) and secure. There is a metro station just two blocks away, from where you can get easily to Manhattan in about 30 minutes. My girlfriend and I had a realy great time in Brooklyn!
A delightful stay in Brooklyn in a great neighborhood! Lori is a good host and although we didn't meet, I felt well taken care of. Everything was in order and as described. Very comfortable and cute apartment.
Lori was really helpful making arrangements for pick-up key with my daughter and providing info about apartment. The apartment is in a safe, well located neighborhood. It was clean and comfortable and spacious enough for me and my husband. I would definitely return.
My fiancé and I stayed at Lori's over the New Year's holiday 2012-2013. We
are both from Brooklyn, but currently living in SF, and I was pleased to
find out Lori was from SF too. She was very responsive to questions and
concerns before we got to Brooklyn. Although she wasn't in Brooklyn at the
time, we had no trouble coordinating the key transfer (she actually had to
mail them to my mom's house in Chicago, as that's where we stopped for
Christmas before heading to Brooklyn).
Lori's apartment was clean, spacious, and homey. She left fresh towels and
sheets out for us, and had little notes in the kitchen describing where to
find stuff for coffee, etc. She both emailed me and left a printout of
instructions and a list of places to eat nearby in the living room.
I had a bit of trouble connecting to her wireless internet at first, and
texted Lori for troubleshooting. She was quick to respond and helped me get
it up and running in no time. Very helpful!
My favorite part of Lori's apartment by far were her books. Over our stay I
read all of her Junot Diaz books, and accidentally left one of my own books
at her apt, which I decided she could keep in kind :) I hope to stay at her
apartment again during my next Brooklyn adventure. Thanks!
Lori was a great host. We didn't get a chance to meet but she arranged a convenient key pick-up with her friends who live a few blocks away. We arrived to a clean apartment where she'd gone out of her way to lay clean towels out for us and everything. The place is actually brighter and seems bigger than the photos make it look. We hung around and watched dvds a few evenings (Lori has a large collection) and it was really nice and cozy.
We were two pals travelling and the bed was easily big enough to fit us both - plus it had a super comfy memory foam mattress. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cookware.
The neighbourhood is great - just a few blocks to the subway and with a fantastic selection of grocery stores and restaurants in walking distance. Couldn't have had better luck in that department.
One small note would be that the pipes in Lori's apt are *very* loud (seemingly around 5-6 AM when the rest of the building's tenants get up and start showering). This did wake us up on several occasions. Not a big deal really, but worth mentioning if you're particular about noises.
All in all it was a great experience. Thank you, Lori, for letting us use your beautiful place!
Lori was a great guest - quiet, clean, and friendly. You are welcome back any time!
Lori is an excellent guest. Everything you hope for; great atcommunicating, super clean and respectful to your neighborhood. She is also super smart and interesting - ask her about her work, it's inspiring! We welcome Lori back anytime.
Lori was a very pleasant guest. She was easy to communicate with, very clean, and I would welcome her back anytime!
Lovely person! She was my guest for 2 months and I really enjoyed having her. She was respectful, quiet, clean and loved my dog!
Welcome back anytime!
