Why is there not an option to give amazing Airbnb hosts 10+ stars? I guess 5 will have to do!
Let me start off by saying we were extremely blessed and honoured to have met J, our Airbnb host (Mana's husband). Normally J is off giving back to this country (America) by serving as a Captain in the Army. Thank you J for your service!
He met my husband and I within an hour of being in Brooklyn, and right off the bat we hit it off as he's one cool dude!
J brought us to the apartment and then showed us around Crown Hights, Brooklyn (the area you'll be staying in). J has spent over 30 years in Brooklyn, needless to say he has a great wealth of knowledge about places to see, restaurants, coffee shops and really, well anything and everything! J and his wife Mana also own several very cool and successful shops (coffee, restaurant and a clothing stores).
The apartment is perfect! Well laid out and decorated ever so nicely by Mana who is an architect. My husband and I felt right at home!
Throughout our three day say, J would check in to see if there was anything we needed and or lacking in the apartment, we couldn't have asked for a better Airbnb host!!! You won't be disappointed whatsoever if you decide to stay here, I've traveled all over the world using Airbnb and this one is now one of my top 5 places to stay.
The area is super cute, filled with many charming coffee shops, bars, restaurants, and many historical landmarks within a short distance from this apartment. Getting around is not a problem at all, if you do not feel like walking, there are buses, trains, Uber, bikes you can use to get around.
We will be back for sure!
