About this listing
You will love my charming apt in historic Boerum Hill! 3 stops to Manhattan and in the centre of Brooklyn's best neighborhoods. My guest room is a peaceful, clean + cozy space to come home to while visiting. The location and charm are unbeatable.
Wonderful, quiet, and comfortable apartment in Boerum Hill to be your perfect base for exploring Brooklyn, Manhattan, and the beaches. Whether you want to eat at any of the multitude of restaurants on Smith Street in Cobble Hill, go to a show at Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), walk along the Promenade and experience one of the best views in the metropolitan area, walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, shop in Soho, explore the famous neighborhoods of Brooklyn (Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Boerum Hill, Park Slope, Clinton Hill, Red Hook, Williamsburg, Dumbo), or catch a show and dinner in midtown- you can do it all with ease and comfort.
The apartment has wonderful natural light, is clean, quiet, and with comfortable surroundings, considering you are 15 minutes into Manhattan. Several major subway lines (F, G, A/C, 2/3, 4/5, N/R, Q) enable you to arrive at any Manhattan, Brooklyn, or Queens destination with ease. As well, the LIRR is minutes away. Besides, walking anywhere in Brooklyn and even to Manhattan from this location is also easy and recommended!
The room is private with shared bath. Linens and towels are provided plus a closet and drawers for storing clothes. During the warm summer months, there is a window a/c in the guest bedroom as well as one in the living room. Coffee and tea are always available as are a hair dryer, iron, and ironing board.
The space is perfect for professionals, travelers, and mature, thoughtful students. The building does not have an elevator so being able to comfortably negotiate stairs is very important. To keep the space feeling clean, bright, and NYC grime free, shoes get left outside the door. Overall, people really love the light and feel of the apartment because it's so bright, airy, convenient, charming, and clean. And, the location cannot be beat with regard to access, beauty, tree lined streets, quiet, and convenience to everywhere you'd want to go.
Interaction with Guests
I welcome guests as I would friends and family. We navigate around each other finding a nice balance between chatting over coffee, a meal, or a glass of wine while also taking care of our needs for privacy and down time. I work from home so I am in and out throughout the day.
Within blocks of downtown Brooklyn, the new Barclays Center, the waterfront, and several of the most talked about Brooklyn neighborhoods -Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, Fort Greene, Dumbo and Red Hook - you will be able to indulge the best of Brooklyn while also being within a 15 minute train ride to major points in Manhattan.
You are an easy 2.5 blocks to the Bergen F stop and and 3 blocks to the A/C. And yet, located in the middle of more than 10 subway lines (A/C, F, G, 2/3, N/R, 4/5, Q) you'll be able to get anywhere in the metropolitan area without any hassle. Go out to the beach, to central park, anywhere in Manhattan, or outer boroughs with ease!
Other Things to Note
For 28+ day inquiries between November 2015-March 2016, I have updated my listing to include a monthly price which isn't available during April-October. Please feel free to message me about availability. The price is for 28 day inquiries which are prorated on the monthly price beyond 28 days making it a great option for off-season traveller's, professionals, and (mature) students seeking a more temporary situation in a lovely, quiet, and cozy space! Look forward to speaking.
No smoking, no pets, and no additional guests on the premises. My listing is not a good choice for late night partiers. The building is a 4-unit professional/family building, so respecting my neighbors, my space, and the building vibe is super important to me.
