About this listing
Hip & Convenient neighborhood, Boerum Hill.
Very close to Manhattan, and there are a lot of young artists, musicians, creative people, and families living in this area. It's so quiet, safe and yet fashionable neighborhood!!
This brownstone building is located only 2 blocks away from Bergen St train station on F & G lines. Of course, other trains like A,C,2,3,4,5,B,D,N,R,Q are within 5 ~ 10 mins walk distance.
Also, it's a block away from Smith St. where you can find the great restaurants, bars, and boutiques. Other popular Brooklyn neighborhoods: Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Fort Green, Park Slope, and DUMBO are all in walking distance!!
It's a non-smoking apartment! Absolutely odor free!!
You can stay in a private bedroom in nice & clean 2 bed room apartment that is located on 4th floor in Brownstone building.
The bedroom is not so big, but there are a full sized futon bed (this mattress is definitely comfortable!), a chest of drawers, a small coffee table, a chair, and a closet in your room. And an AC is installed during summer season and additional room heater is provided during winter.
There is a fully functional wood burning fireplace in the living room. You're also welcome to use kitchen and this small dining space next to the living room.
All the bed sheets and towels are provided. I want you to make yourself at home. Just ask me if you need anything. I'll try to meet your request as possible!
Feel free to contact me if you have any question or concern!!
I'm looking forward to meeting you soon!
No-Smoking, No-Shoes inside the apartment (shoe rack is available for you)
Such a great neighborhood, and a great host.
Clear understanding of house rules... ie- which glassware to use, specific places to place bathroom items and other belongings (and plenty of space for all of it in the bedroom, set with an empty closet, a large empty dresser with plenty of drawers, etc.)
Note that this is a futon bed, not a regular mattress.
Otherwise pictures make the place look perfect and it's lovely, with a lovely, quiet, respectable host.
MaiMai was a hospitable and kind host, she made me feel welcome and I felt comfortable sharing the space with her for a week. Her apartment was in a superb location in Brooklyn, right near the Smith St and Court St retail/restaurant/bars, close to the F,G,A,C,2,3 Subway lines, and within easy access of several Brooklyn neighborhoods. The room and apartment itself were light-filled and you could hear birds singing in the morning, which was lovely in such an urban area. MaiMai also kept everything very clean, including the kitchen and bathroom. I would stay here again if the need arose!
I stayed with MaiMai in Brooklyn for four weeks during May and June. The apartment is fantastic! Very comfortable and has a lot of character. I like the bedroom because the closet was big enough to hang all of my clothes, there is a 3-drawer dresser, and the bed is plenty big.
The bed is not your luxury memory foam comfort style bed, but I never had a problem getting a good night's sleep.
The apartment location was perfect for me! VERY close to lots of restaurants/coffee shops, about a 15-minute walk to the Heights, a block away from a very convenient subway stop, Bergen Street. I also always felt safe there.
MaiMai is extremely accommodating and sweet. When I arrived she had everything prepared for me, she even had divided the fridge space in half for me! She was very helpful in recommending bars and restaurants, she has great taste! She is willing to be as much or as little involved in your stay as you want. If you want to come home and have alone time, she will leave you alone. If you want to chat or go out to dinner, she will do that. She is a wonderful host. I would absolutely stay here again in my next trip to Brooklyn!
Clean. Easy. Tidy.
Works really well as a base to hit Brooklyn from.
MaiMai is easy to get along with and has a neat home. I found corresponding with her very easy and timeous.
My only slight negative would be that the room is somewhat austere. But it works fine if you're looking for more function than form.
I have spent 3 weeks at MaiMai. I couldn't wish a better host. MaiMai is just an amazing host. She is a very interesting person and so nice and funny. We had great conversations. I really had a great time staying at her place. As she wasn't too busy by the time I was there, she showed me around, help me for everything I needed, shopping, giving me good advices... we went to bars and had dinner together and with some friends.... She was really there for me and that was really cool. The way she welcomed me and took the time to make feel comfortable, I really felt like I was home. And the most important thing when you share a place, she is very respectful of your privacy. Her place is definitely cute and cosy, very clean and located in a nice and safe neighborhood, close to everything, shops, bars, restaurants, metros. Few minutes by metro to Manhattan. It couldn't be more perfect. I definitely recommend MaiMai place. Thank you so much MaiMai and I look forward to see you again.
Lovely clean, cozy apartment with terrific light.
One suggestion to MaiMai: a LOT of Americans can't imagine starting the morning without coffee.

About the Host, MaiMai
I'm a freelance production coordinator working in the entertainment industry, such as Fashion, Music, TV, Commercial, Theater, and Radio.
I'm very easy-going, laid back, and clean! I like to have fun, but I'd like to keep all the parties outside the apartment. You're in NYC, and just steps away from all the fun and great food!! Go out to have great time and come home to relax!!
I make the apartment quiet and comfortable!!
