Our place is a tidy and spacious one bedroom apartment on a beautiful tree lined street in one of the most convenient neighborhoods in Brooklyn. You get the whole apartment to yourselves (there are no other housemates or animals). We live in Boerum Hill, surrounded by many excellent restaurants, shops, markets and bars. Our place has wood floors, high tin ceilings, wireless internet, a large eat-in kitchen, and air conditioning.
Our neighborhood is situated right in between Brooklyn Heights, Carroll Gardens, Fort Green, and Park Slope; a five minute walk will get you to any of these neighborhoods. It is also a nice walk to the Brooklyn Promenade, and the waterfront parks in Dumbo. We are close to the newly built Barclay's Center, home to the Brooklyn Nets and site of many concerts and sports events. Our neighborhood is clean, family friendly, and filled with activities. Our place is a few blocks away from A, B, C, D, 2, 3, 4, 5, F, G, N, R, & Q trains. A look at the map shows all the train stations near our place- because we are so close to so many subway lines, it is a very quick trip into almost anywhere you want to go in Manhattan, and because of train routing, it is actually sometimes more convenient than getting places from within Manhattan. It's usually possible to get anywhere you want to go without having to transfer subways.
We had a nice stay at Melissa's place - the location is just great, a few steps from the subway to Manhattan or around Brooklyn. The area is full of nice spots too - shops and restaurants. Cosy, clean and quiet place, although it feels much older than on pictures and you can hear the neighbour's phone vibrating ! But thank god that´s basically all we heard as the neighbours were all very quiet and considerate. That may well be also what living in NYC is about !
Terrific Location ! Subway around the Corner . Very Good Communication , Very clean place , Very Quiet . Everything was positive . An awesome Experience and Place to stay +++++++
Truly a great location in a fun and safe neighborhood. So near Trader Joes and many great restaurants and coffee houses. The apartment was spacious enough for the living room to serve as a
practice dance floor when I visited my father to prepare for my wedding. Also- the coordination between picking up keys and arrival was considerate and adaptable- thank you for making everything work out!
We had a great time staying here! Melissa and Khaela were helpful and communicative. They gave us information how to get from the airport to the apartment and made it very easy for us to pick up the keys. The pictures in here give an accurate description of the apartmaent, the place is nice and cozy and the neighborhood is also lovely. It was also very easy to get around with a few subway stops close by.
And by the way, we recommend Building on Bond (Khela and Melissa recommended it in here) We had great food and coffee there!
Melissa and Khaelas place is the perfect base for exploring NYC with a number of subway stations within a few minutes walking distance.
The place is clean and perfect for a couple on a romantic trip.
They were informative and responsive and provided us with directions from Newark aiport.
We would highly recommend it anytime.
My girlfriend and I stayed in the apartment for two weeks and we absolutely loved the place. The apartment is spacious, it is quiet and at the same time it is very well located. We also really liked the furniture and the style of the place. Considering the qualities of the apartment, the price is very reasonable.
We found the location very convenient to explore all of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Manhattan Island is just 10min away from the apartment door. Virtually every subway line has a stop close by. It is just a 200m walk to the A-C-E train stop. Getting home at night by public transport was never a problem. The neighbourhood feels safe at night.
The apartment is in a residential street. It is especially quiet at night which was a blessing for us because our days in NY were very tiring (in a good way). We are kind of touchy when it comes to noise at night, but in Khaela’s place we slept like babies every night (good mattress). Shopping areas (Fulton Mall) and lots of bars and food options are near. Our favourites (some were Khaela's tips): Mile End, Rucola, Brooklyn Inn, Clover Club, Shake Shack on Fulton.
The rooms are spacious by NY standards. All rooms are separated by doors, so one person can be active while the other sleeps. Windows get morning light, perfect for early breakfast.
We really felt at home and would definitely stay in the apartment again.
Definitely FIVE STARS.
Minha namorada e eu ficamos no apartamento por duas semanas e amamos o lugar. O apartamento é espaçoso, calmo e ao mesmo tempo muito bem localizado. Também gostamos muito dos móveis e do estilo do ambiente. Levando-se em conta as qualidades do apartamento, o preço é bem razoável.
Achamos a localização bem conveniente para explorar tanto Manhattan como o Brooklyn. A ilha de Manhattan fica a somente 10 minutos do apartamento. Praticamente todas as linhas de metrô têm uma parada perto. São apenas 200 metros a pé até a estação A-C-E. Chegar em casa à noite por transporte público nunca foi um problema. Sentimo-nos seguros no bairro à noite.
O apartamento fica numa rua residencial. É especialmente quieto à noite, o que foi ótimo porque nossos dias em NY foram (felizmente) bem cansativos. Somos um tanto sensíveis em relação a barulhos à noite, mas no apartamento de Khaela sempre dormimos como bebês (os colchões são muito bons). Há boas opções de compras (Fulton Mall) e comida por perto. Nossos restaurantes e bares favoritos (alguns foram dicas de Khaela): Mile End, Rucola, Brooklyn Inn, Cover Club, Shake Shack on Fulton.
Os ambientes do apartamento são espaçosos para o padrão de NY. Todos os cômodos são separados por portas, oferecendo privacidade e silêncio. As janelas recebem luz da manhã, o que é perfeito para um café da manhã cedo.
Nós realmente nos sentimos em casa e definitivamente nos hospedaríamos no apartamento de novo.
CINCO ESTRELAS, sem dúvidas.
Super netter Kontakt mit Melissa und ihrer Partnerin. Großartige Kommunikation und Sorge dafür, dass wir die Schlüssel erhalten, da wir sehr spät angereist sind. Keinerlei Probleme innerhalb des Apartments. Auf alle Fragen, gab es prompt (website hidden) ist toll gelegen, etwa 40min zu Fuß zur Brooklyn Bridge, in sehr angenehmer Nachbarschaft. Man kommt zügig von den nahegelegenen Subway Stationen nach Manhattan, oder nach Williamsburg oder wo auch immer es hin gehen (website hidden) war sauber und ruhig.
Wir durften am Abreisetag unser Gepäck im Flur stehen lassen, was sehr vieles vereinfacht hat. Dafür nochmal ein dickes Dankeschön. Wir hatten einen tollen Aufenthalt und waren rundum zufrieden.
Jederzeit wieder würden wir dort übernachten.
We had a wonderful time staying in Melissa and Khaela's place. The apartment was lovely and spotless, and Melissa and Khaela were very communicative and arranged with neighbours for us to pick up the keys. The apartment is perfectly located for wanders around Brooklyn and into Manhattan, and near many subway stops, and it's under an hour to and from JFK airport. Totally recommended, and we'd go back in a heartbeat!
Khaela and Melissa are fantastic hosts and they ensured our comfort from the time we inquired about the apartment until we left and moved on to our next destinations. The flat was in the perfect location as we really got to experience living in a Brooklyn neighborhood, and we were close to so many trains, not at all far from Manhattan.
We really had a great stay, and by the time I left Brooklyn I felt like this was my metro stop, my neighborhood, and my apartment, and my home. The post man is really kind and helpful as well. If you stay here, be sure to visit The Fine Wine Shop, Bacchus, and La Flor del Paraiso on Atlantic, as well as Building on Bond on Bond St. Cobble Hill and Park Slope are within walking distance as well as lots of thrift shops on 5th Avenue.
I recommend this flat if you are looking for an affordable, comfortable home to stay in and a desire to experience both Brooklyn and Manhattan.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend and the place was amazing!! Very clean and just like the pictures! The neighbourhood was very nice and the hosts were fantastic! We would definitely recommend staying here!
