About Ingrid Thomas
Hosts are Ingrid (mom and office worker in Midtown), Lavondo (dad and musician), and Zinn (4 year old boy). Lavondo is from Akron OH and I am from the Philippines. We met while working on passenger cruise liners traveling the world. A couple of years ago, we decided to settle in Brooklyn and start a family. We love to host but will also respect your privacy.
Ingrid Thomas purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Ingrid Thomas chose Bushwick
This apartment is part of a two family building that was built very recently, in 2010. As a 'new build' all the fixtures, electric, plumbing, major appliances etc are like new and have been well taken care of since we purchased the property in 2011.
What makes this Apartment unique
The property can sleep up to 12 in real beds when opting to rent the separate guestroom (shown in photos) along with this listing which on it's own sleeps 8 in real beds. Use of the separate guestroom adds $60 to $80 per night to the base rate of this listing, depending on the number of guests. The guestroom usually needs to be booked far in advance due to high demand.

Best home I ever stayed in New York
It was even better than we expected. Ingrid is very nice and would answer any questions we had. We were a group of 10 and we fit perfectly and had enough space for everyone to fit comfortably. I definitely recommend this place.
New York Visit!
We stayed at this property for the second time, and like the first we enjoyed our stay very much. We were a group of ten and used the additional basement apartment, which was also very comfy. Ingrid and her family are very nice and accommodating. We all really liked the close and easy access to the subway. The area looks really rough , however we had absolutely no problems. We walked from subway station all hours of the morning and during our 10 day stay, we had no problems. The neighborhood grocery store off broadway around the corner from the apartment was super convenient and the manager was very nice he even let us use the basket to bring some cases of water and groceries back to the house his name is Ivan. We had a nice stay and it was worth every penny!!!

Un bon compromis entre la proximité de Manhattan et ses tarifs locatifs
Nous avons loué l'appartement de Ingrid pour 6 personnes et celui-ci correspondait totalement à nos attentes avec 3 chambres et un espace salon/salle manger spacieux et lumineux. A une dizaine de minutes à pied de 2 stations de métro, l'appartement est situé dans une rue calme à quelques pas des petits commerces de quartier. Ingrid est une personne fort agréable, disponible de tout temps et prompte à régler un problème à la location si vous en avez un. Ingrid est également toujours disposée à vous apporter son aide pour vous conseiller des lieux à visiter. En résumé, n'hésitez pas, si vous cherchez le meilleur rapport qualité/prix c'est là qu'il faut aller en acceptant de prendre le métro pour aller au coeur de Manhattan.
I've stayed at my share of wonderful airbnb/homeaway houses. This was BY FAR the best. For the 10 of us meeting up from Australia, Brazil, Poland, Amsterdam and the US, we got more than we asked for! Ingrid was a wonderful host! The kitchen was beautiful! The pictures don't do this apartment any justice. From the shops for wonderful food in walking distance, to catching the L train daily and nightly to see the sights of NYC was all an adventure! I appreciate Ingrid for allowing us to stay, and now anywhere else I go will have to live up to Ingrid's professionalism and wonderful home! We didn't use the outside but we wanted to! We had so much fun cooking and singing karaoke that we were unable to enjoy the back yard. When we invited some friends over to get dinner, Ingrid didn't complain a bit, and we truly appreciate it.I'm from NY and this was by far the best time I've ever had visiting... Largely due to Ingrid's hospitality! Thank you for everything! Look forward to staying again!
Affordable, Clean and Comfortable
Traveled with a group of 10 people. Found the accommodations to be very clean and comfortable. Our hostess, Ingrid, was very sweet and welcoming. Subway terminals are a close walk away. You can't beat the price for what is provided. Book it!
Great place to stay
Easy to find, clean, comfortable and was able to adequately sleep all 9 of us
Ingrid and mother made our stay enjoyable and next time in New York we would definitely stay again
Plenty of easy food nearby with grocery shops Less than a 5 minute walk away
Thanks Ingrid for this opportunity
Brian, Kris and family
