Sweet one-bedroom apartment in Cobble Hill, half-block from the lively cafes, bars and boutiques of trendy Smith Street, and 1 block from the F and G subway line (6min walk to A,C,2,3,R,4,5).
Baby-friendly, with crib and changing table.
The location and proximity to awesome stuff is truly ideal. You can easily take the train or a cab into the city, but could have just as much to do within easy walking distance.
Interaction with Guests
I am usually available to interract via text, email or phone. I have been here for many years and enjoy advising people on cool things to do, places to eat and hang out, transportation options, etc. Just ask!
My neighborhood is quite simply the best in Brooklyn; very close to trendy downtown neighborhoods like Soho, the East Village and the Lower East Side by cab (right across the Brooklyn Bridge)!, but ensconced in a safe and cozy brownstone neighborhood with lots to do right outside the door.
The building is especially safe and convenient, on a quieter, treed residential block between two busy avenues lined with fantastic restaurants and bars, as well as boutiques, specialty food markets, and a couple of small parks.
It's perfect for a single, a couple or a couple with a small child. We are on the ground floor, so you don't have to worry about tackling lots of steps.
1 block from the F and G subway line (6 min walk to A,C,2,3,R,4,5).
Many of these trains take you to the Atlantic Terminal, with access to LIRR and the Barclay's Center for concerts and sporting events.
Other Things to Note
Two cats live here from time to time. Check if they will be here during your stay. If so, someone will come in to care for them 2x a day at specific times.
I know all my neighbors, and they're very aware of who is coming in and out of the apartment building. Please do not bring additional guests to the apartment unless cleared beforehand with me. Also, please don't be noisy, have parties, etc. because I will get a phone call from the neighbors (it's happened before). There are lots of families in the building, some with young children.
Andrea was easy to contact and her place was welcoming. It has everything one needs, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Its the best neighbourhood one can have; close to transport and shops. I will be back
We had a great stay in one of the best areas of Brooklyn. You'll be perfectly situated for trains, restaurants, and just a lovely wander through brownstone Brooklyn. I didn't actually meet Andrea, but she was flexible and helpful, letting us come in late on New Years Eve, keep our bags in her house our last day. The apartment itself is typical of Brooklyn: a little shabby and cozy, but tidy. Note that the mattress is indeed super firm! If that's your thing, you're going to love it...for us, we had a couple restless nights adjusting.
Andrea's place is lovely!! The neighbourhood is fantastic and the apartment is situated in such a great spot. It's just as described, and accommodated all our needs for a nice break from the city. It's very close to the subway and in walking distance to some great shops and restaurants. Andrea was very responsive and was available for all our questions. All in all it was a wonderful stay.
What a great experience. I didn't know the area very well ,and Andrea gave me perfect descriptions and directions. I had no problem with parking, the neighborhood is great and convenient to anything you need. I arrived there very easily. Her home was cozy and clean. She had left wonderful soaps and towels for us when we arrived. The whole experience was convenient, easy, and I feel like I made a new friend. Andrea was very pleasant and made sure that we were comfortable through out the weekend!
Great airbnb experience. Andrea was charming and helpful, apartment was clean, bedroom was comfortable and quiet. Cafe pedlar on Court Street supplied high quality caffeine.
Cute and clean appartment in a super-nice neighbourhood. Andrea was a breeze to deal with: flexible regarding key-handovers and very friendly.
All the best!
Not luxurious, but super comfortable, Andrea's place is an incredible home base with everything you need for exploring Brooklyn with easy access to Manhattan in one direction and JFK airport in the other. She was waiting for me for keys and neighborhood advice ahead of schedule and offered additional tips throughout my stay by text. Heartily recommended!
