Interaction with Guests
We love welcoming guests into our home! We don't mind chatting with our guests and even sharing a meal / drink :) We like for you to set the tone and feel comfortable in our home. We are always happy to give tips and recommendations for anything to eat, drink, do, and see in the city. Check out our growing guidebook too! :)
We simply love our neighborhood and our borough! Located in the heart of charming Cobble Hill, our apartment is the quintessential Brooklyn experience. We are on Court Street/Baltic Street above all of our great local businesses, restaurants, cafes, and bars (and a block away from Smith Street, home to many great Brooklyn restaurants). We're within walking distance of the best bars and restaurants in Brooklyn. You'll not want to even bother going into Manhattan :)
Our guests enjoy the short proximity to Manhattan and the ease of getting to other neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Located one block away from the Bergen Street F/G (less than ten minutes into downtown Manhattan) and 10 minutes walking distance to Borough Hall trains (2/3/4/5/N/R). The whole neighborhood is filled with bike lanes (right around the corner is a bike rental shop). Within easy walking/biking/quick subway or bus ride distance to all of Brooklyn's wonderful neighborhoods and of course all that Manhattan has to offer.
Please turn off lights when not in rooms to conserve energy.
Please be quiet after midnight (on weeknights).
Please fell free to smoke on the patio and use the ashtrays provided (but please keep the door closed while doing so).
Please lock the door at night and when leaving the apartment.
Please be respectful of our space so it can be enjoyed by everyone!
Most importantly, enjoy our wonderful neighborhood! :)
La casa de Amanda es tal y como se ve en las fotos, preciosa y con todas las comodidades que puedas necesitar. El barrio es seguro con muchos restaurantes y con una linea de

Amanda and Alex made us feel like we were in our home !!. beautiful experience, and beautiful people both. The place is really charming, and the neiborough very quiet and nice. a plus: is one block from F metro station. In 15 minutes we were in Manhattan !!.
Wir haben eine sehr schöne Woche bei Amanda und Alex verbracht. Unsere Hosts waren sehr nett und haben uns nützliche Tipps für unsere Unternehmungen gegeben. Die Angaben zum Apartment waren alle zutreffend. Vielen Dank!
I stayed four weeks at the place and I would highly recommend it. The apartment is lovely, cozy and clean. The neighborhood is amazing with all the little shops and restaurants. Subway is also close by so it is easy to get anywhere in the city. Amanda & Alex were great hosts, very helpful and kind.
Séjour très agréable chez Alex et Amanda ! Tout est exactement comme décrit dans l'annonce. Accueil adorable et situation idéale pour découvrir Brooklyn ou Manhattan (de nombreuses lignes de métro toutes proches). On s'est sentis Brooklynites l'espace d'une semaine ! On y retournera sans hésiter lors d'un prochain séjour dans la grosse pomme.
Really enjoyed our stay with Amanda and Alex, two very cool and relaxed people who let you do whatever you wanna do. Getting into the city is even doable by foot, a nice walk with a great view on the Manhattan skyline. If you need some recommendations for places where you can eat or drink, just ask Amanda and she'll print out a list of Brooklyn's finest. We absolutely had an awesome stay in NYC thanks to their hospitality..
L'appartement est très bien situé dans un quartier animé de Brooklyn et très bien desservi (Une ligne directe pour Manhattan et une autre pour Williamsburg).
La chambre est agréable, propre et suffisamment grande.
Le plus : la terrasse/patio à l'arrière, au calme !
Et Merci à Amanda et Alex pour la sélection d'adresses dans le quartier !

We love to travel! We've traveled all around using airbnb and can't wait to do more.
When we are not traveling, we are enjoying our life in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. After living in Manhattan for 6 years, I will never move back! :) We love our patio where we have a small garden going, biking around Brooklyn, exploring the surroundings of our city on the weekend, cooking new things, and enjoying everything our incredible borough has to offer.
We love hosting guests from around the world! We've met incredible people through airbnb and love helping travelers have genuine NY experiences.
