Merging my love for interior design and hospitality, I am able to create a great experience for you.
The clean & comfy private room in our large sunny apt is a wonderful place to stay. Ideal for couples or single ladies (hint).
Located in beautiful Carroll Garden, close to all and the train, is surrounded by very good restaurants, small shops and bars. My place is idea for guests who are interested in exploring NY.
NOT IDEAL as a place to work or if you prefer to stay in the room all day.

Fantastic old apartment in a quiet, friendly neighbourhood. Elma is a great host, available by (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or text if needed but not intrusive in any way. The room has good aircon and next door to the bathroom. Very private and comfortable. The location is brilliant for walking over the Brooklyn bridge into Manhattan or staying in and around Brooklyn. Good subway links on your doorstep and amenities just around the corner.

Enjoyed a great trip to New York and am glad I had the opportunity to stay with Elma in this residential area of Brooklyn. A pleasant apartment with good facilities. The bedroom is spacious and really clean, with a very comfortable bed, and overlooks a green garden space. Elma is a straightforward and welcoming host. Carroll Gardens is a lovely and interesting area of Brooklyn. Good links via F and G trains to Manhattan. 29 minutes to Central Park if you plan to get the express subway. Walking over the Brooklyn Bridge one evening was great. JFK Airport to Elma's --- I would recommend checking out the AirTrain to Howard's Beach, the A train to Jay St-MetroTech Station and F train to Carroll Street for $7.75 .....then a 5 mins walk. I certainly recommend a stay at Elma's if you're planning a trip to New York.

I highly recommend Elma’s place for a peaceful base from which to explore NYC. The bedroom is large and has plenty of storage space; the bed is extremely comfortable; everything in the place works just great; and Elma is a relaxed, genuine, and welcoming host. She has a knack of quickly making you feel like an old friend rather than a new stranger. The apartment is beautifully decorated, with Elma’s keen eye for design, and a great collection of books. The area of Carroll Gardens is delightful, full of all kinds of shops and conveniences. There’s an F train stop right nearby and access to other lines not far away. Get yourself booked in!

Elma was very welcoming and the flat was exactly like shown on the pictures, tastefully furnished and comfortable. Located on a quiet street with restaurants and shops at literally 2 minute walk. The room was very nice and spacious; subway station at 5 minute walk and a short journey into Manhattan. We were in New York for the first time and were pleased with our choice to stay in Brooklyn. Elma gave us plenty of advice to make the most out of our visit - would definitely stay again.

It was great staying with Elma, she's really lovely and fun and welcoming. Her apartment is lovely with very stylish decor and she is a few minutes walk to the subway so exploring other parts of Brooklyn or Manhattan is super easy. She is so close to Smith Street with loads of restaurants. I'd definitely recommend Elma's abode!

Elma's home is really special. I have stayed there several times now whilst working in NYC. It is a home from home and Elma's hospitality is second to none. The bed is so comfortable - perfect at the end of a busy day!

Elma was great. We booked last minute having realised the hotel we'd originally booked was pants! First time we'd used air bnb. It was easy to book, Elma's was in a lovely location, lots of tasty places to eat out, easy to get into Manhattan either on the subway or a brisk walk to Brooklyn bridge. Room was homely and clean, as was bathroom. Only downside is that we got over charged on the taxi from JFK, worth looking into beforehand. Taxi was $70 there (should have been $40ish) same return journey on subway $7.

Response from Elma:
Abi and her husband booked as last minute guests. Emailed them several times to let them know it was important that they notify me upon arriving at JFK as I'd be working that day. The opt to call me when they arrived at my place instead of when they landed so they were forced to wait for me to get home. They were pleasant, clean, tidy and independent. Abi was 6 months pregnant and extremely pleasant. Best with the baby!
