Large, comfortable, clean apartment with courtyard access and tons of sunlight, close to everything. Available during the December holiday season, weeklong stays preferred. The bedroom can accommodate up to 4 guests (full size bed + an futon), while the living room can accommodate 2-4 additional guests. You are able to relax in the living room with internet tv (including Netflix) or enjoy a home-cooked meal on our custom made dining table using the fully-equipped kitchen. We can have breakfast items available upon request so you can enjoy a well-stocked home.
The courtyard is shared by the apartment complex and offers a relaxing respite from the city. We have a propane grill for cooking out and there are tables and chairs to enjoy your meal outdoors if you wish. There is also a terrace for one of the finest vegan restaurants in New York, a craft beer bar and store, a hair salon, and a florist shop accessible from the courtyard. We also live right above one of the best chocolate and coffee shops in NYC!
Fresh linens and towels are available for all of our guests.
The apartment is located in Boreum Hill, a cute Brooklyn neighborhood with quaint streets featuring some of the best Brooklyn Brownstones, and the apartment is one block away from the Barclay's Center, voted the #1 entertainment venue in the U.S. this year. It's the perfect place to stay if you are in town for an event or for the holidays. We are also only a few blocks from many of Brooklyn's finest neighborhoods and institutions, including Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Heights, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Fort Greene, Park Slope, BAM, Prospect Park, and the Bell House just to name a few.
With 11 different subway trains a block away from the apartment we are VERY well connected - you will be a few moments away from Manhattan (one station away from lower Manhattan in fact) and can be almost anywhere in the city in no time. A minute's walk will bring you to the 2,3,4,5,N,Q,R,B,D,LIRR trains at Atlantic Terminal and a 5 minute walk to the A,C,G lines. We are only 2 blocks away from the nearest CitiBike station if you want to rent a bike to get around.
We look forward to your visit!
Our host Michelle was out of town so Janis and Dave took care of us. They were very easy-going and friendly and gave great recommendations for places to eat and go out. The apartment was clean and the kitchen was well-stocked. The courtyard was lovely even though we did not get a chance to hang out due to the colder weather. The location was super convenient as it was a short walk to the trains which serviced several lines. The neighborhood was quiet and cozy and parking was easy to find.
We had an emergency situation in which a friend could no longer come and Janis so kindly changed the reservation to reflect the price difference.
I would highly recommend staying at Michelle's apartment. It is a great value and quite the hidden gem. Many thanks to Janis and Dave for your hospitality and the relaxing stay!
