The Space

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.

Check In
  • Melissa made checking in very hassle free, which meant we could unwind and begin enjoying Brooklyn almost straight away.

    Her apartment is located in a great part of Brooklyn that is conveniently situated close to many great shops and restaurants.

    Inside, the apartment was very charming and comfortable, with all the necessities one might need. It was a great place to return to after a day out or just to chill inside.

    I'd love to stay at Melissa's place again.

  • Great experience in this apartment. Perfect to visit NY, near subway (5min.) to the A-C-E train stop and easy to go anywhere, any parts of NY. 40 min. walk to Brooklyn Bridge.
    Perfect location for perfect trip !

  • My parents stayed a week at Melissa's and Khaela's place: "We enjoyed our stay at your place very much. It's nice and comfortable, the bedroom quiet with a very comfy bed. The apartment is perfectly located for walks around Brooklyn and not far from Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan. Several subway stops nearby make it easy to get around. Nice neighborhood with lots of shops and restaurants; Shopping at Trader Joe’s and Sahadi was a great experience! We really recommend your place. Thanks!"

  • 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 !

  • 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.

We are two artists. We make performances and installations, and frequently travel around the country and abroad for our work. We love living in New York, and taking advantage of all that it has to offer (or as much as we can manage to see, since you could never see it all). We are happy to be able to offer our place to others while we are away.
