The Space

Located on Columbia Street and Kane, this artistic one bedroom apartment has French doors, great sunlight, a working fireplace, hardwood floors, a record player, and beautiful energy throughout.

Situated on the river with a view of lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty, the apartment is a short walk to the Piers and Brooklyn Bridge Park, as well as plenty of public transportation, shops, restaurants, night life, grocer, and the year-round farmer's market. Court Street and Smith Street are a short walk from the apartment.

Perfect for a couple looking for a special and sweet Brooklyn refuge.

Public Transportation is convenient and can take you into Manhattan in less than 20 minutes. The F/G stop at Bergen is a 10 minute walk from the apartment. The 4,5,6,N, 2,3 trains are within walking distance as well. The B61 bus is at the corner.

A bicycle is available upon request.

Dogs and smoking permitted - please inquire about details.

According to Air B&B, Cobble Hill is described as "Corner cafes, cinemas, fire escapes and stoops—such is the streetscape in Cobble Hill. Known for its mom-and-pop shops, Italian meat markets, and boutique shopping, Cobble Hill fits in with its Brooklyn neighbors along Smith Street, Carroll Gardens and Boerum Hill. A little bit trendy and a little bit hip, this neighborhood preserves an approachable atmosphere in a picturesque NYC setting."

Red Hook and Carroll Gardens are within short walking distance.

  • My husband and I had a lovely visit in Brooklyn staying in this cute, sunny and airy apartment. Christina was very quick to respond to all emails and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. The key exchange was convenient and the building felt very secure. We would definitely consider staying here again.

  • My wife and I had a wonderful time staying at Christina's apartment. It was clean, airy, bright and had a lot of tasteful artistic touches throughout (and a nice, eclectic record collection too!) The neighborhood was low-key, mostly younger Brooklynites and their families. There is a cool bookstore downstairs called Freebird Books, their chalk drawn sign out front says "Free Bird Books" which was deceiving. Oh well, Im not much of a birder anyway. We loved that Brooklyn Bridge Park is now very expanded and the connecting bike path is literally across the street from her. That park is fantastic. Christina responded quickly, was very friendly and made our stay easy and without any hassle. We can definitely recommend her place to anyone (well, anyone into staying in stranger's apartments) If there are any drawbacks, it's on a busier street, so it's not pin-drop quiet (eg. 1am trash truck crushing a large piece of furniture), but you're in a large city anyway so... PS. Im not usually this verbose, and maybe it was the perfect weather, but we had a great experience.

  • We had a great time in Brooklyn, visiting family that live just around the corner from Christina's apartment. It was exactly what we needed, in a great neighborhood close to the pier with a stunning view of downtown Manhattan. Only if you are a light sleeper, you could have trouble sleeping in the bed close to the window on the street side. And if you absolutely need a TV and/or wifi, this is not for you. Fortunately, there's plenty to do and we slept like roses after walking around all day in this amazing city :-) We would definitely choose this apartment again on our next visit.

  • We would highly recommend Christina's place. We stayed at Christina's apartment for 1 night and we really enjoyed our stay. She was quick to respond to any of our questions and was a great host. What I loved most about the place was the natural sunlight throughout the whole apartment and we felt safe. We were able to park our car on the street and didn't have to wait long to catch a cab to get around in the area.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed at Christina's apartment last week for 4 nights. Weeks prior to our visit, Christina offered recommendations and was very responsive throughout. She answered all my questions an was always quick to respond. Being my first Airbnb booking, I was kind of skeptical but she just made everything very easy.

    The key exchange went smoothly. Her apartment is so cute and was very much how I pictures NY apartments to be. I loved all her decorations and artwork. I especially enjoyed her record player. Keep in mind though that there is no TV in her apartment. This was not a problem for me, but my bf who is a huge sports fan really wanted to watch ESPN because the NFL Draft was going on the weekend we were in NY. She has a view of the NYC skyline and the apartment is very close to a Thai Restaurant worth trying :). I did wish there was a full-length mirror around, but honestly, smart phones help a lot.

    I also wanted to just mention that her place is about 15 mins walking distance to the nearest subway station. I'm from California, which means we drive pretty much everywhere. So that walk was a bit far for me.

    I think her apartment was perfect for us because it had just about what we needed. I loved all the artwork she had around, and the bed is so comfortable especially after hours of waking around Manhattan. I wish I got to explore more of Brooklyn though. I will definitely stay here again.

  • Christine's apartment was perfect for my needs. The lock was a bit funky trying to get in, but since she happened to be around, it was easy. Just know that it might take a second and some patience to open the door. Beyond that, it was a large floor-through (large, for New York) and it was close to some great bars and restaurant on Atlantic and in Cobble Hill, close to Smith St. too. It also had a commanding view of the Downtown skyline. But I lived in Brooklyn for quite awhile and was prepared for it. Just know that the location isn't right near to a subway, although it's not far, the entry foyer is kind of decrepit and, again, the door lock can be difficult. But other than that, Christine was a gracious host, very flexible and the apartment itself was sunny, bright and quiet. I'd be happy to stay here again. The price was excellent and you are two doors from one of the top Thai restaurants in NYC. Thanks Christine!

  • Mit der Sonne in Ruecken immer voran. Grossartige Bleibe in Brooklyn mit Blick auf Manhattan. Christina is a great host with a beautiful and warm apartment with artisan decoration and lots of music instruments to play. The place is close to nice restaurants and the front windows facing Manhattan. On a sunny day you can even see Lady L. I personally liked the Miles End Deli, 97A Hoyt Street the best, Henry Public, 329 Henry Street and last but not least Hibino in the same street. Japanese Food deluxe. Thank you Christina!
