About This Listing
Come relax in my cozy first floor 1-BR apartment in Cobble Hill, the best neighborhood in Brooklyn. The apartment is located on a tree-lined street near everything including Manhattan. Convenient and cute! Come on over!
This cozy, beautiful apartment has been featured on design blogs and in The New York Times. It's comfortable and perfect for a weekend getaway in the city. Nestled in the best neighborhood in Brooklyn, you can walk to boutiques, restaurants, movie theaters, book stores and more. The city is only a few stops away via the F line two blocks from the apartment. And the apartment is on the ground floor so carrying packages home after a day of shopping is a breeze.
Wi-fi, Netflix, Hulu and Roku are available. A full kitchen with all needed appliances are here for your use. Clean towels and sheets for each guest. Wine, tea, coffee and fresh flowers make your stay even more enjoyable!
Interaction with Guests
I will personally hand you the key and show you around my home and then let you settle in. I am always available via text or phone call in case you need me.
Cobble Hill is a real treasure. I love walking up and down Court Street poking into clothing and antique stores. 3 blocks away is the best independent book store: Book Court, 4 blocks the other way is the movie theater and the greatest place for hot chocolate is next door: The Chocolate Room. Brooklyn Bridge is within walking distance as is Brooklyn Bridge Park and The Promenade. In any season, this neighborhood is a treat and you will feel relaxed and at ease hopping from street to street.
The F and G train at Bergen Street (only 3 stops into Manhattan) are two blocks away. Buses run down Court Street and Smith Street regularly. There is fairly regular free street parking on my block and within the neighborhood. I suggest taking a taxi from the airport but, if you're up for the adventure, you can take the AirTrain to the A and switch to the F to get to Bergen (from JFK airport).
Other Things to Note
I have one real Full-size bed in the bedroom and one Full-size inflatable air bed available in the living room. The bathroom has a full tub and shower with very nice water pressure.
This is a no smoking apartment. No extra guests (even if they're just "stopping by"), no loud music or parties, no drugs, no pets. Please wash all the dishes that you've used and put things back where you found them.
Jeni made us feel very welcome by being in contact and extending her hospitality. Her apartment was in a great area, close to the subway, grocery shopping and eateries. It was a very safe area and quiet. We felt so at home in her apartment which was immaculately clean and so cute.
Jeni was great. Met us at the apartment. Showed us around. Everything was wonderful and as advertised.
My parents stayed at Jeni's apartment while they were visiting the neighborhood. They found the apartment, very clean comfortable and convenient. Thank you!
Jeni was a gracious host who welcomed me with efficiency and generosity. The apartment was pleasant and surprisingly quiet; the neighborhood teems with interesting restaurants, and the subway (20 minutes to midtown) is one and a half blocks away. Everything was clean and the bed extremely comfortable. I hope to be able to return in the future.
Lovely spot perfect for my parents visit. Jeni was great and very responsive.
Jeni was a great host. Very flexible with the arrival and departure times. The flat is super nice and clean and the area is perfect. Cobble hill has lots of cute shops, good restaurant and the best breakfast ever at cafe luluc.
I would definitely stay here again.
About the Host, Jeni
I'm a lifelong New Yorker and have been happily living in my Brooklyn home since 2011. I love getting together with friends for dinner, hosting my book club, going to movies at Cobble Hill Cinemas, getting my butt kicked at Brooklyn Bridge Boot Camp and shopping in Manhattan and Brooklyn. I have way too much celebrity knowledge wedged in my brain and I'm a very mediocre cook. But somehow I've survived! I also love meeting all of the wonderful guests that have booked my home from California and England to Boston and Germany. Every day I feel tremendously grateful for the lovely life I've been lucky enough to have.
