The Space

This wonderful space accommodates two people (couple) easily. It is a sunny and huge one bedroom apartment in a new high rise doorman apartment building extremely close to all subway lines. The apartment is at the intersection of Downtown Brooklyn and Boerum Hill and mere steps from Cobble Hill, Park Slope, Fort Greene, DUMBO, Brooklyn Heights and the Barclays Center. Less than 10 minutes to downtown Manhattan via multiple subway lines.
The apartment has hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and central air conditioning. The bed is a comfortable queen size. The spacious kitchen is fully equipped and has an open breakfast bar facing the living/dining area.

The Boerum Hill/Brooklyn Heights/Downtown Brooklyn neighborhoods are a lovely mesh of bustling shops, popular restaurants and bars and quiet tree lined streets with beautiful brownstone townhouses. You can jump on one of a dozen different subway lines to any place in NYC, including Times Square, the theater district, Brooklyn Bridge, Midtown, Central Park, 5th Avenue and SoHo shopping districts, World Trade Center and JFK, La Guardia and Newark airports.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Simon and Josh were extremely easy to communicate with and made the process very simple. Their apartment is beautiful and provided a nice respite from the chaos of the city. In addition, it is arguably in the most convenient spot in all of Brooklyn.

  • Simon and Josh were wonderful hosts. Very flexible with the checkin and checkout times. Their place was superbly clean with very easy access to the metro. Brooklyn Fare market was right across the street for groceries. And there is a gym in the complex for those quick workouts! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you Simon and Josh for accommodating us!

  • We had a wonderful time stay at Simon's apartment in Brooklyn. The apartment is very spacious and well maintained. It is in a great location, right next to the subway & easily accessible to everything. Simon was a wonderful host & provided great recommendations for nearby restaurants and bars. Also the wireless was great - an important & often over-looked detail. This apartment is also just 1 mile from Crossfit South Brooklyn for any crossfitters out there.

  • I came to NYC to have dinner with a friend. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Simon & Josh’s great condo.. Their condo, which is located in heart of downtown Brooklyn, exceeded my expectations. It was clean, and walking distance from the Brooklyn Academy of music, as well as many restaurants and cafes. Yes, the subway is literally just down stairs, as everyone else has pointed out.

    Simon & Josh were great hosts. They were available as soon as I arrived to NYC. Both were thoughtful enough to suggest several jogging paths for my morning run. (BTW if you’re going to run over the Brooklyn Bridge go as early as possible, as the path is filled with tourist by the middle of the morning.)

    I highly recommend staying here if you are interested in getting to know Brooklyn a little better.

  • We really enjoyed our stay in Brooklyn thanks to staying at Simon and Josh's very nice and super convenient apartment. Proximity to the subway was a delight and the very well equipped kitchen was perfect for out needs. We hope to return soon!

  • We stayed in this very clean and conveniently located apartment. Easy access to subways to get into the city. I highly recommend a stay here. Simon and Josh make themselves available for all questions and they will suggest restaurants in the area. An easy and pleasant stay.

  • The apartment was wonderful, very clean, and three steps from the train. Simon was very easy to communicate with and we would stay again!

  • The appartment has really good location, easy to come from airport (JFK) with subway A, easy to go to Manhattan also with A/C trains and close to Brooklyn cafés, shops, bars, restaurants, etc. in the hip and cool area! The subway station is literally in the same building. The 2nd floor apartment with street view is clean, nicely desined and has it all you need for a long weekend in NY. The communication with Simon via e-mail was easy, and we liked the local tips where to have a drink or eat out - thank you. The apartment has WiFi, and the area is safe but not too posh.

    March 2014
  • Simon and Josh were very responsive to all of our questions, extremely polite and provided great support to us during our stay.

    The apartment is very cozy, clean, quiet, super neat and it is well located, you have restaurants, stores and Fulton Mall just across the street in a very safe downtown area. The most convenient thing is to have the subway station underneath the building :) a close ride to Manhattan ~15min.

    The building doorman was also very helpful with me and my wife so if we ever visit NYC again, definitively will contact them. Sure bet!

    There is a grocery store in Livingston St. where you can find everything, super convenient. As I said before, the location is unbeatable.
