About this listing
Sunny top floor open loft style space with two bedrooms on the 3rd floor of our duplex unit. Loft space has its own living room, kitchen & large bathroom w. jet tub & separate standing shower. Cafe & restaurants across the street. 7 mins to Manhattan
The space is a open loft style space on top floor of a three floor walk up. Its two floors and we made our top floor into our guests abode. Its a beautiful open space that is sun drenched with southern exposure with a big skylight as you enter the main apartment from the stairs. Its very minimalistic, as I don't like clutter. With wood flooring through out. I used to have a restaurant, so in my kitchen I put in industrial metal shelving and counters to give it a sleek look. And for a New York city apartment, the bathroom is a dream space. All white tiling, jet bath and a separate standing shower with a window facing out to a court yard. Both bedrooms come fully furnished with fresh linens and towels. Each room has it own key and lock with a living room and kitchen.
The guest has access to everything to the everything on the top floor with its own little kitchen unit, private bedrooms with lock & key. We have a full bathroom with white tiling, bathroom window and jet bath and separate stand up shower. They will be renting out the whole unit.
Interaction with Guests
I am always available/around by cell phone for the needs of my guests.
Boerum Hill is one of those little neighborhoods that not many people know by name but definitely have spent some time or visited. It is situated in the little pocket area known as BOCOCA (Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill & Carrol Gardens). These three neighborhoods is the quintiessential downtown Brooklyn, with prewar buildings, brownstones, tree lined streets and friendly neighbors that have been here for generations or neighbors that have just discovered these special little areas.
Its amazingly convenient to Manhattan, since one of the main subways the A & C & F train is all located in 2 or 3 min walking distance. Also, the G is a great line because it takes you straight to Williamsburg, another hip and cool happening area of Brooklyn. Getting to Williamsburg from downtown Brooklyn takes about 20 mins and there is no need to transfer trains.
Getting around is a breeze! It is amazingly convieneit to Manhattan, since one of the main subways the A & C & F train are all located in 2 (A&C) or 4 (F) min walking distance.

Also, the A train that takes you straight to the Jamaica Air Train station which goes to JFK international airport (one hour train ride). Compared to taking a yellow taxi which would cost around $65 or so, the subway to JFK Airtrain would cost $7.50!
Our new green borough taxis are also easily able to hail from the street since Atlantic Ave is one the main larger streets that lead to Manhattan. Taking a green borough cab would cost around $10 - $15 if you are going somewhere in downtown Manhattan and NOT during rush/peak hours.
Also, private car service cabs that we also use are always reliable and can pick you up directly from the brownstone in less than 15mins.
Other Things to Note
The block that I live on has the almost everything. Across the street is my favorite cafe call the THE LITTLE SWEET CAFE. It is everything a cafe should be. Warm, cozy, with the perfect brewed cup of coffee. Also, they make the best crepes & pastries! Masoud the owner is comical, friendly and just about knows everyone in the neighborhood. If you go there, you must say hi to him and tell him that you're my house guest!
We have two queen size beds and for additional guests we provide one air mattress and a regular mattress or guests are welcomed to make a bed on our comfortable couch!
No smoking in the house and to be mindful of the energy usage. If you are leaving the room or the apartment I kindly ask guests to remember to turn all lights off and/or air conditioner and fan.
If you loose any sets of keys that is provided during your check in, a $25 dollar charge is taken out of the deposit to replace the set of keys.
