  • We had just a little contact with Judy, who lives upstairs, and was warm and helpful when we had questions or requests. This is an exquisite unit, decorated in an interplay between a simple design taste that uses focused colored and the elaborate molding, French doors and arches of the building itself, downplayed in a uniform white, to elegant effect. The Apple TV was a useful addition, much more appreciated than any number of cable channels. The dining room and kitchen were ample for a take-in meal with guests, and we could have cooked more elaborately had we wanted.

  • We stayed 9 nights in this apartment. The apartment is bright and clean and has everything you need to feel at home. There are many N.Y. travel guide books to help you plan your days. It was great to come home and get into a comfortable bed at the end of a big day of sightseeing.
    If you are planning on attending any sporting or music events at the Barclays Centre you will be happy to know that the centre is only a few minutes walk away.
    You are completely self contained and private in this apartment but the owners only live upstairs and are available if you have a problem. Judy kept in contact through messaging and she was so helpful and able to answer of my queries.
    We stayed in Manhattan for several nights before coming to this apartment and we felt that we had a true NY experience staying in Boerum Hill.
    Weekly subway travel cards are only $30.00 for the week and we found it really easy to get around NY and beyond. There is a subway stop only one and a half blocks away.
    We really enjoyed our stay.

  • We were very happy at Judy's apartment in Boerum Hill. Bright, spacious, comfortable, convenient to transportation, thoughtful host. Highly recommended!

    April 2014
  • We spent 7 days in this light and beatiful appartment. Judy is very friendly and we felt us welcome. There were plenty of tea and coffee, the good one☺️.
    It is very easy to take the metro to Manhattan, but we also took it to Brighton and spent a day at the sea.
    The neigbourhood is cosy with many nice restaurants and farmers markets. Take the bus up to Prospect Park and have a walk back. Nice bookshop and toyshop in 7.avenue.
    We will come back some other time.
    Many greetings from Jette and Ebbe in Copenhagen, Denmark.

  • In mid March my two daughters and I stayed at Judy's apartment in Boerum Hill for four nights. This was not my first stay in Brooklyn, but it was the first time I had rented an apartment, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The pictures of the apartment and the various communications from Judy were on point, but pictures are just that. We could not have been happier upon arrival. The apartment was very clean, sunny as the pictures had projected and had all the amenities we needed to have a relaxing four day break. We like to cook and found the kitchen well stocked with all the conveniences necessary. I could tell you of all the little extras Judy made available, but I'll just say we were very comfortable. Judy was out of town but stayed in touch to make sure we were happy. This was a very pleasant experience and one I would recommend to anyone wanting to visit Brooklyn or the big city. When I return, and I will, I know where I'm staying. Thanks Judy.

  • This was a wonderful apartment. We enjoyed the light, the privacy, the comfy bed and the coffee experience. It was new for us to grind our beans and drip our coffee! The apartment was well stocked in the kitchen and bath, plus there is a washer and dryer!

    The location is very convenient and safe. I highly recommend Judy and her apartment.

  • I had a great time in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Judy and her husband were great hosts, they were caring and helpful.
    The apt looked exactly as the pictures and the neighborhood felt friendly. It was great to have the metro station, were the A train were passing by, som close.
    I can certainly recommend the apartment for anyone looking to stay in Brooklyn, but at the same time be close to Manhattan, which you are because of the A train.
    We had our two year old son with us and there is two playgrounds not so far from the apt.

    March 2014
  • I live in the neighborhood and got this apartment for my dad to stay while visiting. Since I live here, I checked out a few places in Boerum Hill before picking one and this was certainly the nicest of the available options.
    Everything worked out great and Judy was a fantastic host.

    February 2014
  • We stayed at Judy's apartment for 5 nights, and it was wonderful! Judy is pleasant and responsive.
    The apartment is chic and very clean, in a great hip Brooklyn neighborhood. All in all a great experience.

  • My fiancée and I stayed here for four nights while our furniture was being shipped from New York to San Francisco. The place is just as nice as it looks in the photos, the building and neighborhood are quiet and there were a number of thoughtful small touches, like a great guide to the local restaurants, lots of New York-themed books and art and some breakfast fixings. It's extremely convenient to subways as well. One note: If you stay there when it's cold, you might need to ask Judy to turn up the thermostat, as we did. There are radiators in the apartment but the master control is in her unit. But we were there during the Polar Vortex, so you probably won't have that problem.

About
My husband (a West coast transplant) and I (East coast native) bought and renovated this 19th century row house in Brooklyn 3 years ago. Since then we have been enjoying the unique vibe here. We are both passionate about design (I am also an architect), so we really enjoyed setting up the vacation rental and hope our guests enjoy it too!
