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.
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.
When I read Judy’s listing, it met my needs so perfectly that I was worried the real thing would *have* to be a bit of a letdown. But the real thing turned out to be even better. The apartment itself is *exactly* as advertised, and Judy and Sasha’s extra touches – a wonderful neighborhood guide with their personal recommendations, thorough instructions for apartment appliances, a starter of granola/milk/fruit, and kind responsiveness to questions - made our stay as good as we could have imagined. The proximity to the A/C line is really worth noting, as is having good markets (Brooklyn Fare, Trader Joe’s) and neighborhood restaurants all within easy walking distance. It’s a wonderful place to stay while visiting New York.
We had a really wonderful stay in this apartment. The place is spacious, well-maintained, and with many details attended to that make it feel luxurious rather than simply comfortable-- high quality towels and sheets, an ipod dock for music, up to date kitchen appliances, good shower pressure, ear plugs and books by the bedside... I could go on. Judy was courteous and answered all of my questions promptly, even with short notice. The apartment is sunny and cheerful and close to all major subway lines coming into Brooklyn. We hope to come again and this time will schedule less to do in the city so we can spend more time in and around this gem of a space.
Loved our stay at Judy's apartment, nicely decorated, new kitchen and bath, very clean, comfortable bed, convenient. Will return when we are back in Brooklyn!
We stayed for a week and loved it. Great hosts, good comunication, lovely Appartement, clean, good equipment, perfect location. We will come back. (:
Judy and the apartment exceeded my expectations. Judy was easy to coordinate with and lovely. The apartment was a little oasis...a home away from home in every sense. The bed was super comfy, apartment was clean and tidy with all the little amenities you could need (hair dryer, washer/dryer should you need that, and yummy coffee for the morning), and love how they decorated the place.
Overall a great experience - I have bookmarked this place for future visits.
We had a great stay at Judy's; the apartment was just what we wanted as far as facilities and location were concerned. We were a few hundred yards from the A line which gives straightforward access into Manhattan and up the west side and it is also within walking distance of many other subway routes. The area around Atlantic avenue abounds in restaurants, cafés, shops and bars but is not as frenetic as parts of Manhattan. Judy was a very kind and helpful host.
This was my first Airbnb stay and I have only great things to say about Judy's place and her hospitality. The apartment was exactly as presented, beautifully decorated and welcoming. The location was amazing, a beautiful neighbourhood for walking, as well as very close proximity to the subway lines going into Manhattan. What made the stay even better were all of the little thoughtful details: fresh milk in the fridge, granola and fruit left as a snack, and lots of great information collected in a handy book including restaurant recommendations for the neighbourhood, subway and bike maps, and car service to the airport. I would highly recommend a stay here!
