About the Property
Minutes to Manhattan In Boerum Hill, BK: Modern, Comfy, Cool & Spacious FloorThr
The kitchen is fully outfitted: Stainless steel dishwasher, full refrigerator, gas oven, and microwave, as well as small appliances and everything you need to enjoy a home-cooked meal while you travel. We're also steps to the best of Brooklyn's great markets like Trader Joe's and Los Paisanos, among others, not to mention oustandingly delicious dining options.
The bedrooms are private and quiet, facing the backyard, which is graced by singing birds and a huge willow tree that greets you in the morning. Both bedrooms feature an iron bed with a queen Simmons mattress. There is also a comfortable sofa and an Aerobed to accommodate additional guests.
The apartment is on a friendly, quiet block that provides easy parking and is located around the corner from the Bergen St stop on the F train and all that Smith Street offers.
A dog lives in the building but not in this apartment, so I'm pet-friendly...I bought the house to have a yard for Baxter! You'll see him in the photos, but we'll be out of your way during your visit.
Pets are welcome, based on the outcome of a conversation between potential guests and myself!
The full apartment is yours to enjoy.
I'm generally here, as I live in the apartment directly below this one, and am able to help as much as you'd like. If for any reason I'm out of town, I'm easily accessible by phone, text or email.
I absolutely love Brownstone Brooklyn and Boerum Hill is arguably the most convenient of all the brownstone neighborhoods. With the F train around the corner, you're in Manhattan in 10 minutes or less and Midtown in 25. But if you decide to explore the 'hood, you get all of the hip with none of the hassle. Enjoy an urban and urbane environment of boutiques, cafes and tree-lined streets. I find it the perfect place to relax after buzzing around Manhattan!
Please note that extended stays of a 30+ days will include additional cleaning and security fees. That keeps everything in good shape for everyone — thanks for understanding!

Our apartment is on a friendly, quiet block that provides easy parking and is located around the corner from the Bergen St stop on the F train and all that Smith Street offers. It's also 15 minutes from Manhattan and the best of Brooklyn: Prospect Park, the Promenade, Brooklyn Museum, with the beaches of Coney Island and more just a little further.
You can easily enjoy a walk along Brooklyn's Promenade with its unparalleled view of Manhattan or enjoy the view as you walk TO or FROM Manhattan over the Brooklyn Bridge. It's about 15 minutes from the house!
With the F train around the corner, you're in the city in 10 minutes or less and midtown in 25. But if you decide to explore the 'hood, you get all of the hip with none of the hassle. Enjoy an urban and urbane environment of boutiques, cafes and tree-lined streets. I find it the perfect place to relax after buzzing around Manhattan!

About the owner: I'm a passionate traveler and animal-lover....thrilled dog-mommy to Baxter, a pretty well-behaved Boxer/Pit, although he gets props for his own version of willfulness...but we respect that a lot in this household...within reason! If I can combine a trip and a U2 concert...well, that's a done deal! I'm a rarity – a Born n'Raised Brooklyn Girl...and I'm happy to provide tips on the popular and arcane! Growing up, going to Broadway shows was a major plus! I'm a holistic healer (Eden Energy Medicine) as well as a Writer/Creative Director in Media with personal focus on spiritual exploration/development. Big fan of delicious bold red wines...and/or a crisp, icy pint. I love people...the stories they hold, the laughs and insights that are inevitably shared...I kinda run my home like a b'n'b for dear friends and family, so I thought, hey, why not extend the circle (and help pay for my next sabbatical...)
Why the Owner Chose Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, NY, USA:
As I mentioned, I'm a Born n' Raised Brooklyn girl, but I had the opportunity to purchase 'the worst house on the best block' and I did it! I got to do a complete gut on the house and enjoyed a really fulfilling creative project as a result. This part of Brooklyn is just incredible — while it offers a respite from the intensity of Manhattan, it offers its own vibrancy and sophistication, with a delightful blend of neighborly friendliness.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
I love that we're steps from the subway for the ease of getting into Manhattan, and I really love that it's not necessary to go there! Amazing shops, museums, galleries and restaurants surround us!
