This beautiful and spacious Garden apartment takes up an entire floor of our 1880s brownstone. It has its own backyard which is great for summertime barbecue.
Our building is only two to three stops from Manhattan via the 4, 5, and F trains, and a couple of stops from Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Compare this to other Brooklyn apartments that are half an hour or more from Manhattan. We are also only steps away from Pier 6 where you can hop on a water taxi into the city or Governor's Island, play some beach volleyball or walk down the promenade. Easy access to Grocery stores for food shopping and other daily amenities as well.
Cobble Hill is a great neighborhood bordering Brooklyn Heights and Carroll Gardens - all of which are filled with quaint and award winning restaurants (Sushi, Thai, Irish pubs, Americana you name it), shops, French cafes and parks. Admire the 1800s architecture as you stroll through this historic neighborhood - you may even decide to spend the day exploring this area rather than venture into Manhattan.
The apartment has a queen bed with a memory foam mattress top, a comfortable gigantic sofa that is large enough to seat 4-5 or sleep one comfortably, two brand new LCD TVs with DirecTV, a kitchen with stainless steel range and new cookware, original hardwood floors. We know you will enjoy your stay here with us!
The backyard/garden is shared with me and my family - if you plan to have an event in the backyard please contact me ahead of time to coordinate.
The description and earlier positive reviews from previous guests helped me to decide to book 7 days in early June. I have stayed previous times in a hotel in Manhattan and at another Airbnb in Williamsburg. I had a family event to attend in the Cobble Hill area. We loved it. A great place to discover. Keow was instantly responsive via text to any questions. She met us on time and transferred the keys. You know a place is super lean when you can wear new white socks (forgot the slippers) and they showed no floor dirt or grit at all. A fresh dish sponge in a wrapper spoke to cleanliness. Ample, quiet fridge. The big king bed was super comfortable. Despite being across the road from a sunken freeway, the place was an oasis of calm. The second and third folding beds were like futons - very comfortable. The pots of herbs in the back garden patio added to a few dinners we cooked there. It was a four block walk to the main drag - Smith Street with cafes and small shops between plus clean residential streets. Very friendly neighbours. Going anywhere by subway was about 40 minutes - not too bad either to Manhattan or other parts of Brooklyn on the F train. There is an amazing walk relatively nearby to the Brooklyn Promenade. And you can take a ferry across to Manhattan if you like. A cute small cafe is right on the corner for breakfast or a drink on the way home. I recommend a sojourn to Keow's comfy spot on Hicks Street anytime.
This Pre-war Brownstone is located in the historic and established Cobble Hill neighborhood in Brooklyn. This trendy area is filled with restaurants, French Patisseries, cafes and shopping boutiques. If you want to visit Manhattan it is only a 5 minute subway ride from one of our many subway stations (A,C,2,3,4,5,F,G stations).
We are also also steps away from Pier 6 - a newly built recreational area that includes beach volleyball courts,promenades, areas for fishing and picnicking. During the summers boats offer free rides to Governor's Island (a popular tourist destination) and various areas in Manhattan. From Pier 6 you can watch the 4th of July fireworks,or enjoy the night view of the Manhattan Skyline.
The newly built Nets basketball stadium, located next to the Atlantic Mall,is a 10 minute drive from this property.
Also within walking distance is the DUMBO area which is home to cobble streets, the Brooklyn Bridge, famous Grimaldi's pizza, and the Five Star Restaurant - River Cafe.
Whether you decide to stay in Brooklyn or venture into Manhattan we hope you enjoy your stay with us in this wonderful city!
