About this listing
Located on Court Street at the crossroads of Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens, this one bedroom floor-thru apartment is cozy and comfortable. Windows on both sides of the apartment equal beautiful morning light in the kitchen and dining room for your breakfast, and an amazing golden sunset in the living room after a long day out exploring the city.
The apartment features:
- bedroom with a queen-sized bed
- living room with an extra-long couch that can also accommodate a sleeper (it's 6.5 feet long, so even tall visitors will be comfortable)
- dining room that seats four
- full kitchen with range, oven, and tools for cooking
- bathroom with stand-up shower (no tub)
- wireless internet
- cable television (please note that the TV is a new addition and not pictured in photos)
I call Court Street the "street of convenience," as all of your basic (and not-so-basic) life items can be had within a few blocks walk. The apartment is across the street from Union Market (a great gourmet grocery store), upstairs from a fantastic produce market, two doors down from one of Brooklyn's oldest Italian delis, and across the street from Court Pastries, home of the best cannoli in Brooklyn. There are great bars and restaurants all throughout the neighborhood, on both Court and Smith.
The apartment is equidistant from the Bergen St and Carroll St stops on the F/G, and about a ten minute walk from the 2/3/4/5 at Borough Hall.
You're adults and so are we. Please treat our home like you would treat your own and enjoy your time here!
Jen's place is cozy, comfortable and convenient! Located in the heart of Cobble Hill, everything you need is right outside the door - groceries (incl. a Trader Joe's up the street), bakeries, bars, restaurants and the F train less than 10 minutes away.
The apartment is as described - filled with natural light throughout the day. The bedroom faces out into the street, which can get a bit noisy in the mornings, so earplugs may be a necessity if you're a light sleeper.
Jen was a great host. She couldn't be there to welcome me so she sent the keys to me before my arrival, which made our trip less stressful. I would definitely stay there again.
Towels and linens were provided. The neighborhood is the best you could ask for. The apartment is small but worked well for our needs. Couch is comfy to sleep on, and there's a double bed. It is extremely cute and stylish and well-appointed! No curtains on the windows so if the light wakes you up in the morning that might be an issue. Window unit A/C in only one window cooled the place well enough but on the far side of the apartment (kitchen/dining room) it was a bit hot while the sun was coming in. Overall great experience-- thank you, Jen!

I had a great stay at Jen's apartment, very close to the Carroll St and Bergen subways for trips into the city. I was mostly touring Brooklyn and it's in a perfect spot for enjoying the cafes and restaurants nearby.
The apartment was very clean and welcoming. I used the couch and my dad used the bed; both get good, comfty reviews. All in all, I would highly recommend!
I couldn't ask for more!!!! For a first experience with airbnb i have to say that i was really happy! Jen's appartment is in a good area, with subways not far! The appartment is big enough for 2 or 3 ( we were just 2). Jen respond as soon as she can and stay in touch with you if there is any problem! I'm sure i will go again! I loved it.
P.s: sorry for my bad english
