Guest Access

You're welcome to use any common spaces: the kitchen/kitchenware, patio, shared bathroom, and living room/dining space.

Interaction with Guests

We love welcoming guests into our home! We don't mind chatting with our guests and even sharing a 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! :)

The Neighborhood

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). Brooklyn is the best part of NYC, and our neighborhood and surrounding have the best places. :)

Getting around

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.

  • We enjoyed our stay in Brooklyn very much, thanks to the hospitality and kindness of Amanda and Alex. Their lovely apartment is in an ideal location for getting to know the Brooklyn neighborhood and for visiting Manhattan.
    We look forward to a return visit.

  • Great stay visiting our daughter in the same area. Neighborhood has so many great restaurants, bakeries, etc. and the house was very clean and the room just as advertised. We would stay here again.

  • Wonderful stay to Amanda and Alex's place.
    The appartment is lovely and perfectly located (subways+neighborhood)
    Amanda and Alex shared a lot on their experience and on NYC.
    We would do it again without hesitation.

  • We stayed for 4 nights and had a really nice time. Amanda and Alex are very easy-going and welcoming. The room is spacious, bright and cozy and the apartment is perfectly located (great neighborhood, very well connected to Manhattan).

  • Our time staying with Amanda on two different occasions (with a week in between), went very well. It was in such a vibrant location and one night we did just pop in to one of the restaurants below. Another time we had brunch with our daughter, husband and our new grandchild at the restaurant on the other side of our front entrance. We did not get in each others way as we spent all day with our daughter.

  • Alex and Amanda are really nice hosts. We enjoyed staying with them in their appartment, which itself is perfect located in Brooklyn.

    During our stay Alex and Amanda made us feel welcome and comfortable since it was our first time using airbnb. Their tips and warnings about Brooklyn and New York was perfect to avoid Bering scammed.

    We will definitely be using airbnb again thanks to our hosts.

  • Where to start? My partner and I spent two weeks in this apartment. We can certify it is is perfectly located (transportation, restaurants, etc.), very clean and... charming, as advertised :-) This would have been enough to make this apartment a 5-star but for us, the big deal is definitely Amanda and Alex. They truly are the perfect hosts, with a great personality and many things to talk about.

    We HIGHLY recommend you to book here!

  • Had a great stay at Amanda and Alex's place in Brooklyn for 6 days over the new year / holidays. GREAT neighbourhood - we enjoyed the 5 block radius around their apartment more than any other area we went to in all of Brooklyn or Manhattan. Awesome restaurants, neighbourhood pubs and cocktail bars, and surprisingly quiet streets. The apartment was always very clean, warm, and easily accessible.

    Alex and Amanda were very helpful when we had questions and had great suggestions for all activities and ideas - super easy-going couple and not imposing or difficult in any way :)

    Thanks for an amazing trip!

    (TIPS: go with a big appetite to Bare Burger - bets burger i've ever eaten. Cafe Cubana also does great cheap cocktails and food.)

  • Amanda and her partner were great hosts and friends throughout my stay. They were hospitable, welcoming and friendly, and had great tips about local restaurants, bars, and markets and bookstores/ shops in the area. They were very knowledgable about New York and US history and cultures. Also - another secret- they can make great cocktails!

About
My name is Amanda, and I'm 25 and live in Brooklyn, NY. I am a web developer and I teach at a coding bootcamp here in NYC. My boyfriend Alex as well is a software engineer. 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 (where I currently work), 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. Languages: English, Español, Français, and Română.
