Sorry, no pets.
No loud music.
It's location is very good. With metro, I can go to Manhattan very (website hidden) facility and bathroom are also good enough.
My car was towed, but I could handle it with Mark's help.
Mark’s place was just like the pictures: cosy, comfortable, clean and fully furnished. He himself was really accommodating. Prior our arrival, we received a lot of information about the place and Brooklyn so we felt at home almost right away.
As everyone said, the apartment is located in a beautiful neighbourhood, close to the Brooklyn Bridge Park and only a few steps away from several subway stations, which makes it really easy to go to Manhattan or elsewhere in Brooklyn.
As expected the place was a bit dark (it’s a basement) but we were there mostly at night so it didn’t bother us too much. The street was calm however we heard noises from upstairs, especially in the morning, so if you are a light/late sleeper, bring ear plugs! Other than that, we slept super good, beds were awesome!
Overall, we would definitely recommend this place! Thanks Mark!
We had a great stay at Mark's apartment. Everything was exectly like described here at airbnb. Like others already mentioned the apartment is close to subway stations where you can get to manhattan in a few minutes.
We never met Mark personally but we easily could have contacted him if we needed anything.
We definitely recommend the apartment for anyone who is planning to travel to NY.
We had a wonderful one week stay in Mark's apartment in Boerum Hill. It is within 2 blocks of 3 different subways. Convenient for the A train to JFK airport. Not far from Trader Joe's for groceries. Mark's family was very helpful and welcoming. We felt very safe in the apartment.
We came to New York for a short break and Mark's place was perfect. Really great location, nice neighborhood with some lovely nearby cafés and restaurants and conveniently located to get into Manhatten. The apartment had everything we needed and Mark was very accommodating! Thanks so much!
We had a wonderful stay at Mark's very clean apartment! The location is fantastic (close to all sorts of restaurants and conveniently close to many trains), the apartment is very comfortable and Mark is very easy to communicate with. Would stay again in a heartbeat!
Nice, clean and spacious apartment in a nice neighborhood which is a bit more relaxed than Manhattan. As other guests noted, you will hear sonetimes noise from Mark and his family, so be prepared for that if you have a problem with that (which we didn't). However, there is almost no street noise. The apartment is close to several subway stations, so you are in Manhattan in 15 minutes from the front door.
Mark is a good owner, friendly and helpful.
About the Host, Mark
I'm married with two amazing kids and a wonderful wife. We've lived in Brooklyn for over 19 years and in New York City for nearly 30 years. I work in television as a Creative Director for SundanceTV.
