This place will make you feel x10 more comfortable than a hotel. Verna is a gem and will do anything she can to give you the best comfort of a home away from home. Our only request could of been for faster wifi - a small trade off for the fun neighborhood and spacious comfort of this Airbnb

I have no words to describe how amazing this beautiful home in Brooklyn is and how brilliant Verna is! Being in New York for the first time was overwhelming but from the moment I entered Verna made me feel at home. She welcomed me with a big hug and a warm heart and assured me she was there to help if anything was required! Thanks Verna and I truly did appreciate you welcoming my friend late at night after his delayed flight and seeing him off too. The house is absolutely beautiful and has a lot of space. The beds are great and very comfortable and the wooden fixtures are beautiful. Verna had everything ready for us - towels, shampoo, linen, (URL HIDDEN) really was amazing! The neighbourhood is safe and Verna had given us local insights around cafes and food places to try and instructions about the train station which is a short 5-7 min walk. I would love to come back to New York and stay with Verna! Without doubt the best Airbnb experience I've had so far!

Anurati, writing such an awesome review for me, helps others decide if Verna's Brownstone Suite is where they ought to be!! i thank you for that as it enhances my business more than you (URL HIDDEN) much as you enjoyed your stay, i too enjoyed having you here...you blended in so well with others and the environment, that not even my neighbors knew, you were a tourist, you were a true native New Yorker, while in the big apple! both, you and your friend, was everything a host hopes for but seldom gets! thanks for bringing joy into my home and for taking such good care of it, during your stay...please know, you will always be welcome back, whenever need be...thanks for being you!!! your friend, Verna

As someone who’s stayed at other airbnb’s and sometimes struggled trying to figure out how to get in, it was such a relief to see Verna smiling on the steps welcoming us home! :) She is an amazing host and made sure we got a little tour of where everything was and then left us to enjoy our time. I went for the weekend and she was sk sweet! She was always available for any questions and made some awesome recommendations we took her up on for local spots to grab a bite or coffee! The fridge was stocked with fresh water and snacks which were amazing after a night out! She even had some toiletries in the shower which I was so (!) relieved to have as I totally forgot mine. Lol. Shower pressure could be a little better but nothing that can’t get you clean. :) Area is about a 10 min walk to the C-Line and close to various food options. Quiet neighborhood, bed was SO comfortable. Apartment was beautifully decorated and super clean. I will definitely stay again if I head over to Brooklyn! Thank you Verna!

Verna greeted us wholeheartedly during the check in. She prepared enough towels for our stay and went beyond to leave some snacks in the fridge. Her place is clean and tidy; she came in everyday to collect the garbage. It was overall a nice stay at Verna’s place.

Verna was an AMAZING host. We had another host that was a no show. She responded very quickly to our request, and made us feel at home right away. The apartment was great. Very clean and cozy. She's a great decorator. It's very obvious that she takes pride in her home. It's conveniently located near public trans. Very easy to get to Manhattan. She had tons of great food recommendations in the neighborhood. She also stocked the place with snacks and coffee. If you're staying in Brooklyn you're not going to find a sweeter person to stay with. I can't wait to come back and stay again. I wish Verna was my mom. (Mom, if you read this review I'm sorry)

Response from Verna:
Matt, Thanks for this 5 star review, it's appreciated more than you know! I was happy to help you guy's out of a bad situation, when your first host was a no show!! My reward for doing so, allowed me the pleasure of meeting yourself and James. My forever wish, is that all who enter my home as strangers, will part as friends! In this case, i gained a son (or two)!! What a blessing for us all. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and thinking of returning in the future. You were awesome guests and will always have a home here, whenever need be! If your mom read this review, she would probably laugh her head off, as i did :) Your in the right business, comedy is indeed your niche! Your mom knows, no one could ever take her place! Therefore, trust me, she would be happy to know that you see me as a mother image and your safe in my home! Thanks for the laughter and the compliments :) Hi to James for me! Until next time, your host, friend and mom:) Verna

I'm a retired Special Education teacher, living in the Bedford Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn, New York. It gives me great pleasure in maintaining my Brownstone Townhouse, not only for myself but for the comfort of my guests. I love my LORD and SAVIOR and thank HIM daily for the many blessings HE has bestowed on me. Being a part of the Airbnb family is just one of them! Meeting people from all over the world and sharing cultural differences has been an experience like no other. What an awesome GOD I serve, to direct me to what brings me joy, (hosting)My life mottoes:ONE HAND WASHERS THE OTHER and FAIR EXCHANGE IS NO ROBBERY!! Before you decide to book, please read what is posted on my site. To do so, will determine whether my place is suitable for your needs. Thanks for your inquiry and i hope you book soon...All the best, Verna
