I'm a writer and performer living in Brooklyn (originally from Canada). I live with my wife, Shauna- who's a stylist. We travel often and love meeting new people :)
Sabrina's place was great - she got me set up with only a few days notice after another reservation cancelled on me last minute, and always responded quickly to any questions I had. The apartment was in an awesome location, and very comfortable. I will definitely check with Sabrina first next time I visit!
My wife and I very much enjoyed our visit to Williamsburg and staying at Sabrina & Shauna's apartment. We spent a couple of days visiting with my son, who lives in Brooklyn, and this apartment was in a great location. It is very close to subways for the short ride into the city, and a short walk to great restaurants, trendy shops, and the east river. There is also a great espresso cafe just a few steps down the street, near the corner with Union Ave. We went into the city to see a play one evening, then (email hidden), so we came back late and the neighborhood still felt safe. We were also very pleasantly surprised at how quiet the apartment was at night - we've stayed in a lot of different places around NYC, and often the "city noise" at night can be quite loud.
Sabrina & Shauna's apartment is very personal (it reminded me of my sister's flat in London), and the pictures of the apartment in the listing are absolutely accurate.
Communication with Sabrina was great - she responded quickly to messages, and she made sure that we knew the check-in process (which was very simple) more than a week before we arrived.
I highly recommend this host.
We had the pleasure of spending two nights at Sabrina and Shauna's apartment, and could not recommend it more highly. Everything was just perfect!
Communication and check-in were effortless. The apartment is well-located in the very hip area of Williamsburg (with many restaurants, cafes, bars and shops nearby) and is convenient to the G, J-M and L trains, which will take you right into Manhattan (very close).
The apartment itself is clean, quiet, cozy yet very spacious, and decorated with an artistic sensibility, whimsy and clearly a lot of love. Very charming and fun! The bed is extremely comfortable and the fixtures, heating, appliances and wifi all work perfectly.
The girls left a lovely welcome note with many excellent neighborhood recommendations, which was a thoughtful touch. We really enjoyed our stay, and would definitely stay here again! Thank you Sabrina and Shauna!
We had an excellent time at Sabrina's apartment. It was clean, beautifully laid out, and really centrally located to a lot of bars, restaurants and shops in Williamsburg. The apartment was surprisingly spacious, the kitchen was well-appointed and there was ample street parking (which is awesome for an out-of-towner). Sabrina and Shauna helpfully left us a really thoughtful written welcome along with some suggestions on things to do in the neighborhood (we checked out a few and they were spot-on!)
The check-in and check-out process was super easy and went off without a hitch.
Highest possible recommendation - if we are ever back in Williamsburg, we would totally stay here again!
Wow, Sabrina’s apartment was beautiful and it was a pleasure to stay at this very cool pad. Sabrina was already out of town when I contacted her but she was so accommodating and organised for us to stay at her apartment anyway. It was clean, easy to find and it had great heating considering it was 30 fahrenheit outside! She was also on hand for advice and assistance. We had a great meal on Sabrina’s recommendation and hit a few bars around Williamsburg which was great fun. It’s super close to Manhattan and easy to get to. New York we’ll be back and Sabrina we’ll be staying at your place!! x
I had a wonderful time staying at Sabrina's apartment in Brooklyn - it was exactly how it is advertised - very clean, well located, and very cool! Sabrina was extremely welcoming and left lots of great tips for places to visit and things to do during my stay, and responded to a couple of questions that I had straight away. I'll definitely be recommending this place to anyone travelling to New York!
We spent four wonderful nights at Sabrina & Shauna's apartment and honestly couldn't have chosen a better place to stay! It was spacious, cozy, and nicely decorated, making it pleasantly difficult for us to leave most mornings (not to mention that everything about the bed was comfortable). Our first night was a wet and stormy one, but we cozied up on the couch and entertained ourselves with Netflix (SO many more options in America!) and didn't regret a thing. Getting to Manhattan was much quicker (and simpler) than we expected, so we didn't spend too much of our time on the metro which was nice.
I was originally skeptical about finding parking in New York City, but I was conveniently able to park almost directly in front of the apartment throughout our entire stay (for free!), which was beyond great.
I'd totally recommend this apartment to anyone visiting the city — in fact, my parents are even considering it!
We had the pleasure of staying at Sabrina and Shauna's place for a few nights and would recommend it wholeheartedly. This was our first time renting a place on Airbnb and it could not have gone more smoothly. Communication with Sabrina was a breeze, and everything from directions to the place to entry instructions was clear and easy to follow.
The place itself is fantastic. Clean with wonderful decor, it's a great place to spend some time after a long day exploring the city. Everything (A/C, water pressure, kitchen, etc) is top notch. It's also surprisingly quiet for New York as the unit backs onto a private deck area.
Getting to Manhattan is a piece of cake on the J/M trains but check out the neighbourhoods within a short walk of the place as well. There are a lot of amenities in the area as well as a ton of restaurants, cafes and bars in the immediate vicinity. Shauna and Sabrina are very knowledgeable about the area and are able to provide great recommendations.
Seriously, if you're looking for a place in Brooklyn or just somewhere with easy access to Manhattan, you can't go wrong here. It's simply a great place in a fun, interesting area and the hosts made everything extremely convenient and easy. We'll definitely try to book here again next time we're in New York.
Thank you so much Sabrina and Shauna for a great stay in Brooklyn! We wanted to experience the other (read: cooler) side of the river during our two week trip to NY so opted to stay at the girls' apartment for a long weekend.
The location was great and close to everything we needed. Their home was clean, comfortable, very spacious (even more than the pictures show) and furnished with such love and attention to detail.
Both girls are sweet, down-to-earth and very funny! Sabrina was great to communicate with in the lead up to our trip and Shauna gave us a lovely welcome on the weekend we arrived. They left us a note filled with tips on what to do in Williamsburg, most of which we hit up!
Thank you again for a great Airbnb experience and please drop us a line if ever you're in Brisbane, Australia!
Sabrina and Shauna's place is amazing! Spacious, clean, and very cool. The neighborhood is great as well, very calmed and it's walking distance from great places to eat and have a drink, besides of the flea markets, and other cool shops.
Also it's very near subway stations, which will cross you into Manhattan in aprox. 15 min'.
We got there earlier than expected and they showed their good hospitality by giving us some coffee and great indications. They are very kind, fun and we would totally love to receive them in our place!.
We hope, to have started a cool and lasting friendship.
If you are thinking to stay at Brooklyn this is the place to be, they are the BEST!
Thanks to them and airbnb...we've got the greatest memories.

Sabrina was wonderful to have as a guest. She was prompt and courteous. She loved the apartment, was careful with the property and left without a mess.
I hope she will visit again.
Super clean, respectful, and great communication. We would definitely rent to Sabrina and her friends again!
WOW, what great guests Sabrina and Shauna were! They were like a second family to us and treated Mano like their own. They were never intrusive and always such a pleasure to chat to by the pool. We saw them in town on their mopehead and got them to join us for sundowners on the beach. We invited them into our house for dinner one night and hope that one day we can actually do a house swop with them, shows you how trustful we are of them. Definitely would not hesitate to recommend them to all future hosts!
To say hosting Sabrina was a pleasure would be an understatement - it was a momentous and unforgettable experience! She is witty, mischievous, hilarious and also kind, caring and considerate - in short, my new favourite adopted niece! If you don't have a chance inviting her to your home when she comes to town, at least go see her show!
Sabrina and her friends are awesome! Great people and we would welcome them back anytime. We had a great time here in Tulum celebrating her Birthday. Great job to Sabrina and the crew for going big in Tulum...they had a great adventure and we can't wait to see her again!
Sabrina was a terrific guest who I would highly recommend letting stay at your apartment. She was very clean and I never had any problems throughout her stay. She was very responsive to all messages and email.
Sabrina was the ideal fun, friendly, and responsible guest!
