Reviews of this property
We stayed in the lower appartment with direct access to the garden.
Although the interior is dated, the appartment was clean. Nice kitchen with table and chairs and a stuffed fridge with lots of food you may and can use for breakfast.
Also in the bathroom all items such as shampoo and shower gel.
Close to the subway - only a few minuten walk.
Nice neighbourhood. Good recommendations from Laurie for bars and restaurants.
The apartment was suitable for 4 people and with fast subway connections into Manhattan best located. Laurie was an excellent host and very generous. Breakfast was included and she even gave us additional $20, so that we could pay the taxi to the JFK airport. On the first evening she briefed us on the neighbourhood and important aspects on NYC sightseeing, that was very helpful.
We really enjoyed our stay and hope to come back soon!
We spent a week visiting Laurie and had a lovely week! We had the downstairs apartment and a room at the top! The location is great you need about 5 minutes to the next Subway! The apartment is very nice and cozy. We can only recommend it
Wir waren eine Woche zu besuch bei Laurie und hatten eine schöne Woche! Wir hatten unten das Apartment und ein Zimmer ganz oben! Die Lage ist super man brauch ungefähr 5 Minuten zur nächsten Subway! Das Apartment ist sehr nett und gemütlich. Wir können es nur empfehlen

We ha da wonderful stay at the Apartment from Laurie. We come back to visit New York again :)
Wir sind freundlich von unserer Gastgeberin Laurie begrüßt worden. Die Wohnung ist wirklich charming und hat uns gefallen. Der Kühlschrank war gut gefüllt und die Croissants und der Orangensaft sehr lecker. Park Slope ist eine angenehme, ruhige Wohngegend und die subway nach Manhatten von Lauries Haus in einigen Minuten zu erreichen.
Wir haben unsere Tour genossen und Lauries booklet enhielt eine Menge guter Tipps. Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Dieser Aufenthalt, war leider nicht was wir erwartet hatten. Die Photos der Wohnung waren eindeutig manipuliert und leider war es auch nicht sauber. Im Kühlschrank befanden sich gebrauchte Lebensmittel, das Mobiliar war z.T. sehr abgenutzt und schrottreif.
VIel schlimmer war allerdings die Hilfe von WIMDU (nicht!!!!) Auf unsere Emails und Anrufe, habe sie einfach nicht reagiert! Auch eine Möglichkeit dem Ärger zu entgehen!!!!
Unser Fazit. NIE WIEDER WIMDU!

I very much enjoyed my stay at Laurie's very cozy home in Brooklyn. It's located close to the subway, so Manhattan can be reached within short time. But also Brooklyn offers nice places to go to. Laurie is a very friendly and generous host - offering wonderful bagels and creamcheese for breakfast. Thanks again and all the best, Sabine
