The roommates come and go which is not a problem. The so-called cleaning lady comes whenever she has a chance, which it's clearly not often enough. I found several insects in the bathroom. In the kitchen gas stoves don't work properly, you only can use one at a time. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the neighborhood and the well-sized bedroom!

Thank you Laura for choosing the Brownstone for your stay. As a reminder the unit you rented was a self-maintained unit, which required you and other tenants to clean up after yourselves. The cleaning lady is there to ensure common areas are maintained. During the summer months, the individual responsible for cleaning was inconsistent and thus had to be terminated. The cleaning fee was credited back to you during that time period.

While you were a resident here a tile came loose in the bathtub and I believe a water bug entered through the hole in the wall. You alerted me and the tile was re-affixed. Your claim regarding the stove would have been resolved during your stay, had you mentioned it any point before departing.
Thank you again and I wish you the best.

My roommates were nice, never had any issues, I got along very well with them. The owners were very kind, they always helped whenever I had a problem.
As per the neighbors, I had some issues with them. The landlady had to call the police because they were listening to rap music until 4 a.m. sometimes. I had to sleep with the lights on during 2 months because there was a mouse in my bedroom. Two months later, it came back while I was sleeping with the lights on. Nobody came in my bedroom to exterminate the mouse, the holes were only plugged with some steel wool. Wifi never worked in my bedroom, I had to Skype in the hallway or in a coffee house. We had never been able to use the four burners of the gas stove together, only one burner can work at the same time whereas there are four of them. There are not enough furnishings in the bedrooms, an extra shelf would be better, everything is piling up and it is not easy to tidy up your things. It is too hot in the bedrooms during summer, the fan is not a good quality fan.

Thank you Ariane for choosing my home for your stay. This past summer the neighbor had a family member staying that played his music at a very high level. That was never an issue in the past; however, he has since relocated. Additionally, although a historic and beautiful community, Bedford Stuyvesant consists mainly of connected brownstones, which means the risk of unwanted house guests. To alleviate any issues, I have the house exterminated on a regular schedule, and emphasize to tenants that they keep entry ways closed and the kitchen and personal spaces clean. Mice in particular, can run along pipes and also run in your front door. As a mom of a young child, I am always concerned with pests and vermin of any kind and take a siting very, very seriously. I am sorry you felt I was unresponsive to your complaint; however, in addition to stuffing holes, the exterminator laid poison around access areas, in the kitchen and in the basement. He also removed the open food containers and debris from the room. Once a vermin gets in it is very important for tenants to keep their areas clear of used dishes, glasses and food containers to avoid them making a home in your space.
Concerning the WiFi, I rewired the entire 5 floors with separate routers for wifi. Everyone has wifi. I personally tested it on my ipad.

I am constantly asking tenants if everything is okay and if there are any problems. At no time has anyone ever mentioned an issue with the stove, nor has anyone mentioned it to this date. In addition, the room you occupied is equipped with a dresser, desk, chair, bed, linens and a flat screen TV. I am sorry if that wasn't sufficient furniture for you, not sure what additional furniture you required to make your stay more comfortable.

Temperature comfort is something that is quite subjective and really depends upon the individual. I realized summer can be a bit warm at times, so I actually gave Ariane my personal tower fan. I had been using that fan without issue, so I am sorry it wasn't up to your standard of quality. At no time was there ever a complaint about excessive heat, and/or a poor quality fan.

Thank you again for your review, I will discuss your points with the remaining tenants to ensure they are happy.
