  • We absolutely LOVED Judy's apartment! It was so beautiful, clean and spacious. The apartment is situated in a lovely area of Brooklyn with lots of cafes and restaurants only a short walk away on Smith street. There were also 3 train stations in close walking distance to the apartment. We spent a lot of time in Manhattan as it was only 1 stop on the subway! Judy was a very helpful host, getting back to is really quickly if we had any questions. Will definitely return and recommend to others :)

  • We had a great time in Judy's appartment !
    It's beautifully decorated, spacious and warm in a very cool neighborhood.
    Judy's description is completely accurate, both for the appartment, for transportation facilities or for the neighbourhood (nice shops and restaurants : you have to taste Rucola, nice and trendy italian restaurant !).
    She is also a very charming host, helpful and accommodating.
    We definitely recommend this location.

  • We had a great stay at this fantastic flat. Child save and very well located. Our 1,5yr old daughter didn't hv much to take apart or fall off from. We enjoyed this very well situated flat with good access to subway, deli's and restaurants/take always. Only to recommend and I'd go back there any time. Needless to say that I'm a Brooklyn fan whatsoever. Kitchen and bath is well equipped- being able doing a laundry certainly helps with a toddler.

  • Our experience with both Judy and her apartment met or exceeded all of our expectations.
    The description of the apartment is accurate. It is bright/sunny, quiet, clean, well appointed. It is perfectly located close to attractions, transportation, restaurants, groceries, boutiques, antique stores and more.
    Judy provided whatever we needed, responding quickly to our request. In addition, she knew how to give us all the privacy we wanted.
    We highly recommend this wonderful stay!

  • Fin leilighet sentralt i Brooklyn. Rolig område. Veldig hyggelig vertskap som gav gode råd og tips om steder å besøke i nabolaget.

  • We stayed in Judy's lovely apartment for 6 days with our 2 children. The apartment was clean and comfortable with a new bathroom and kitchen with the most necessary utensils to cook meals. The apartment decor is very nice and the kids loved the opportunity to watch Netflix movies. You quickly feel like being at home and the apartment looks exactly as on the photos.

    The location is great with a short distance to the subway to Manhattan and JFK airport - and within walking distance to many of Brooklyn's nice neighborhoods: Dumbo, Prospects park, Brooklyn Bridge area, etc. Smith street is a great place to do shopping. Brooklyn Fare, a delicious organic grocery store is close to the subway which is very convenient on your way home after a long day in Manhattan.

    Judy is a welcoming and helpful host, easy to get in touch with if necessary. We will definitely return to Judy's apartment on future visits to New York and can highly recommend the apartment to friends and everyone else.

  • 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!

  • 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.

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!
