This apartment is really beautiful - even more so than the pictures show. It's very quiet and the location is amazing. It was well supplied with towels, toiletries, coffee and breakfast. We loved access to the washer and dryer, so helpful. And the guide provided was really thorough.
great accommodation in a great location
brooklyn has good bars and cafes away from the hustle and bustle of manhattan, with good subway links when needed
Our stay at Judy's was absolutely fantastic. We spent 10 nights and were sorry to leave. The location is very easy to access via subway as it runs on the A, C and G lines. Going to Manhattan, Williamsburg, Coney Island etc was no problem whatsoever and the station is only 1 minute walk away.
Everything we needed was provided. We decided not to pack towels and were relived to find that these were ready for us. Many kitchen, laundry and bathroom essentials were provided (website hidden), cable and Apple TV were easy to use.
We felt a great deal of independence in our apartment, and loved sitting at the dining table in the evening with a cool beer and sore feet, plotting our adventures for the next day.
Thank you Judy; New York will always be Boerum Hill for us!
Judy and Alex were very accommodating and allowed us an early check in. They had milk and cereal available for us, which was very appreciated as we came in on a red eye flight. The apartment was quite large by NYC standards, and was clean and elegant. The neighborhood was safe and several restaurants were within a block or two. WiFi and apple TV were great for the kids.
The apartment is gorgeous - spacious and ideally located in Brooklyn (all subways needed are very close by and there are lots of nice and comfortable restaurants, bars and cafes in the area). Everything was very clean and the apartment is nicely furnished and equipped with everything you'd probably need. We would definitively come back and we highly recommend this place.
Da Judy ed Alex abbiamo avuto un'accoglienza ottima e ci hanno dato molte indicazioni di dove e come andare ed una folta lista di posti per mangiare.
La descrizione della casa corrisponde a quella pubblicata.E' semplice, ma curata nei dettagli. Abbiamo avvertito una buona atmosfera. Letto comodo e confortevole.
Brooklyn è interessante e piacevole. Si può passeggiare per Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights Dumbo e raggiungere gli altri quartieri, inclusa Manhattan, con la metro a pochi passi da casa.
We stayed here for a week in April with our six-month-old son. Judy was great. She was really helpful and the arrival and departure went really smoothly. The apartment is in a great part of Brooklyn and is a spacious one-bedroom place with a nice living room and kitchen/diner. It's just round the corner from the subway and it's just a few stops into Manhattan. There are also really good restaurants and great grocery stores within a few minutes of the apartment. We were easily able to drive right up to the apartment to drop off our luggage and Judy had left a really good guide about the local area with everything we needed to know. She was sweet enough to leave us fresh milk and baby juice in the fridge and the kitchen is a really good size with great oven, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. There is also good room in the bathroom for the washer/dryer. Would really recommend to anyone looking for a place in Brooklyn.
About the Host, Judy
My husband (a West coast transplant) and I (East coast native) bought and renovated this 19th century row house in Brooklyn several 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!
