Description

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. *****NOTE: New York City is going through a lot of construction all over the city, including out the windows of our kitchen and living room! Due to this we have priced our place much lower than usual for week-night stays. The bedroom faces the other direction away from the construction and is generally very quiet, so our sleep has not been disturbed much from the construction. They work every day out our living room windows from 7am - 5 or 6pm. Our place has wood floors, high tin ceilings, wireless internet, a large eat-in kitchen, and air conditioning. Because of the construction in the living room, we keep one very powerful air-conditioner in the bedroom, and we don't have one in the living room.

Guest access

Guests have access to the whole apartment.

Interaction with guests

We will be available via phone or email to assist with any situations while you are at our place. You will be greeted and introduced to the apartment by a friend of ours.

The neighborhood

Our neighborhood is a lovely and desirable area.

Getting around

Our neighborhood is the most convenient area in Brooklyn for getting to any part of the city. It 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 and saves us a lot of money as we never have to take a taxi anywhere.


House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Check in is anytime after 2PM

There is no smoking allowed in the apartment, but we have a great stoop out front where one is welcome to smoke. We prefer that guests not bring pets, but could consider a pet with an increased damage deposit. We appreciate if guests take out the trash and recycling upon leaving- there are bins outside in front of the building for each. More details about the house will be sent after a booking is made.

Melissa and Khaela were amazing(!) and very reachable/accommodating. We had a late flight out from JFK and they graciously allowed us a late afternoon checkout. The apartment was exactly as described and rather sizeable for NY/Brooklyn standards! I loved the neighborhood as well, plenty of coffee shops and boutiques to spend an idle afternoon (or three) exploring! It's a hop, skip and a jump away from transit, taking you into Manhattan or Park Slope. Really, I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience - my only advice? Book immediately!

I enjoyed staying in Melissa/Khaela's apartment and having super convenient access to several subway lines. The neighborhood is a great mix of residential and commercial (lots of cute restaurants and bars nearby), without being loud. As a solo traveler this time around I felt very safe walking around at night. The apartment is pretty spacious and could easily accommodate 2 guests. Khaela went out of her way to make my arrival and departure convenient. I was able to store my bags at the apartment after the usual check-out time, which I really appreciated. One of their neighbors was also close by and able to help out in case I needed anything.

The apartment was nice and clean, and it is indeed ideally located! With only a couple of minutes walk to the subway and bus stops, you are easily connected with both Manhattan and the rest of Brooklyn. The neighborhood was also nice and relaxed with shops and restaurants nearby. Melissa and Khaela was quick to respond on our questions and offered helpful information prior to and during our stay.

Melissa and Khalea were very nice, responsive and making sure I was OK The location of the apartment is great. The apartment needs some improvement. It was very hot in NY and no A/C but it was advertised with A/C. Construction was there but it really didn't bother me. Adding a TV will help too. Overall an OK experience except for how warm and humid the apartment was especially on my first day

Response from Melissa:
We felt so bad about the lack of AC during Frank's stay! Frank made a short-notice booking at our place in May; we ended up staying out of town longer than we had expected and so we listed the place a week in advance of the available dates. We hadn't installed the AC units before leaving town, and while Frank was there the weather suddenly got hot for a couple of days. We were so sorry to hear that the apartment wasn't cool enough while he was our guest, as we go out of our way to try and make guests comfortable, and we keep our place priced low in comparison to other airbnbs in the neighborhood so that guests will feel as though they've gotten a good deal. In the future we'll install the AC far in advance of any potential high temperatures!

The apartment is located in a great spot in Brooklyn and the host was super helpful, from getting there from the airport to all the good spots to eat at. Highly recommended.

My partner and I are 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, and we've enjoyed traveling with Aribnb in many exceptional locations as well.
