The Space

Our funky, cosy and comfortable apartment in the historic neighborhood of Boerum Hill (read more in Airbnb's "Neighborhoods" section) offers you the perfect home-away-from-home, at a fraction of the cost of NYC hotels.

You'll be located among beautiful brownstones and original houses, central to everything that's so great about Brooklyn while still being under 10mins from downtown Manhattan.

We rarely venture far from home because Boerum Hill and the surrounding neighborhoods (Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens and DUMBO) offer so much: dozens upon dozens of incredible restaurants and cafes, bars, boutique retail stores, food and flea markets, the Brooklyn Nets stadium, parks and so much more. One block away is the F & G train which will take you straight to Manhattan or to hip Williamsburg. Two other lines are a five minute walk away.

We recommend you explore the streets on foot. The iconic Brooklyn waterfront, including Brooklyn Bridge Park and artistic DUMBO, is a 15 minute walk away. In the other direction is the borough's iconic green space, Prospect Park. And before you come home for the day, you should definitely stop for a quiet drink at Brooklyn's oldest bar, the Brooklyn Inn, which is across the street (the wood bar was transplanted from Germany in the 1870s!).

Here's what our apartment offers:
-Large, heated and air-conditioned 3 room apartment with very comfortable queen-sized bed and a queen futon in the living room
-Private courtyard with a Weber BBQ and seating
-Full kitchen with gas stove and every possible utensil
-Broadband WiFi, Netflix and Apple TV
- A very safe and comfortable abode close to everything you could ask for

  • Shane and his wife were great. They were very easy to meet up with and great about answering all my questions. Their apartment is a wonderful place to spend time in right in the heart of Brooklyn easily connected via train down the street into Manhattan (two stops away). Highly recommend this place to anyone coming into the city. Beats any hotel room I've booked in the city.

  • This was a great place in an awesome area for someone visiting NYC. The area was safe even for my Mother who is from a rural area. The apartment it's self was very accommodating for two people sleeping in separate beds with the use of the sleeper sofa. It was clean and functional. The back patio with grill was a definite plus! Not only would I recommend this place to anyone visiting NYC but, I want the apartment when they move out!

My wife Jess and I (plus our cuddly grey cat 'B') are so happy to call Boerum Hill, Brooklyn our home. We moved to the U.S from Australia in early 2012 and while we miss our lives 'Down Under,' it's been an incredible experience. We love using AirBnB when travelling and there's no question it's allowed us to meet some amazing people.
