Heather is very nice and friendly person. The place is comfortable to stay. I highly recommend.
Heather ci ha accolti con gentilezza nonostante fossimo arrivati in tarda serata in casa sua. Siamo stati 6 notti in una bella camera spaziosa e pulita. La casa è vicina ad una stazione della metro da dove si può raggiungere Manhattan. Ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo.

Nice and clean place, friendly people, good place in Brooklin
Would not recommend. The room i had booked had been double booked so we were moved into another room with a fold out futon as a bed. Owner expected us to cook for her and her husband and, out of guilt, we did one evening and they didn't show up until an hour and a half after the agreed upon time. Bunch of passive aggressive texts and general rudeness.
Only positive point was the adorable dogs which the owners allowed us to walk.
Friendly host, a big and clean room, separated own kitchen for guests, next subway station less than 10 min to walk, this stay is warmly recommanded.
How do I book?
Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
