Description
1 Bedroom Vacation Rental in Boerum Hill (NY-11601)
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom - Sleeps 4

This classic NYC one bedroom apartment in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn offers a comfortable and charming setting within a trendy NYC neighborhood. Conveniently, this home is just down the street from the F and G trains, taking you into Manhattan in just 3 short stops!

Located on Wyckoff Street & Hoyt Street, the contemporary brownstone apartment combines the old-world charm of exposed brick walls and decorative fireplaces with modern amenities for comfort and convenience. It sits on the ground floor of a 4-story walk-up building.

Please Note: There is no door separating the bedroom from the living room. As a result, privacy may be limited for larger parties.  

Please note as well that some noise can be heard in the apartment from the people who live upstairs.

Hardwood floors, an exposed brick wall, and a white decorative fireplace decorate the charismatic living room. Here you will find such basic amenities as a wooden dining table, double-sized convertible sofa bed, and modern artwork. Two windows look towards a residential street, providing ventilation and natural illumination.

A compact kitchenette area is open to the living room. This space offers countertops, white cabinetry, and most essential cooking appliances, such as a gas stove, microwave, coffee maker and small refrigerator with a mini-freezer compartment. The elegant white-and-blue tiled bathroom supplies a sink with cabinets, full-sized tub/shower with curtain, and toilet.

A hallway with linen shelving leads from the living room to the bedroom. It includes a double-sized bed facing an exposed brick wall; the decorative fireplace has been converted, now housing cabinets and the small TV. Closet space, dresser drawers are also included. The windows look onto a grassy garden and patio area (not available to renters).

Boerum Hill, Brooklyn is a largely residential New York neighborhood near Cobble Hill and Gowanus. A truly lovely environment, it features tree-lined streets and historic brownstone apartment buildings, which have become a staple in NYC. For your convenience, a laundromat is located just around the corner on Hoyt Street. Along Smith Street you will find a hub of restaurants and small shops. Listed below are some suggestions of where to go in the area.

-New York Transit Museum: Are you a lover of trains? Check out this museum dedicated to the history and understanding of the NYC public transportation system. Located on Boerum Place at Schermerhorn Street. Accessible via foot.

-Sample: This charming wine bar offers an expansive menu of wines, beers, and cocktails. Located at 152 Smith Street. Accessible via foot.

-Cobble Hill Cinemas: This vintage-inspired cinema is a great destination during rainy days. Located at 265 Court Street. Accessible via foot.

For public transportation around Brooklyn and into other New York City boroughs walk to Bergen Street / Smith Street, serving the F and G trains. (0.2mi/290m.) Not only giving access to Manhattan, the G train is great for visiting other destination neighborhoods in Brooklyn like Park Slope, Williamsburg and Greenpoint!

The apartment is in keeping with its description. It is well-located in a pleasant area. Thanks to two subway stations, which are really close, you can visit NYC easily and quickly.

Apartment ideally located if you want to go to Manhattan and then rest and sleep in a quiet place. The neighborhood is really quiet. Perfect welcome, thank you for your patience in front of three jetlagged French.
Really recommended, we had a great time in Brooklyn.

The apartment is very well-located, next to a subway station and to Manhattan but in a quiet and green area. The only drawbacks are that it is on the ground floor, but it is quite bright, and it is an old building so it is not very well soundproofed. It is not that embarrassing after all except if you are very sensitive to noise. We will gladly come back!

Thank you for choosing our apartment for your stay in NY. We are please that you had an enjoyable stay. Thank you also for your kind review. We appreciate your feedback. We have taken as many precautions as possible to soundproof, however it is an old house and the floors will creak a bit. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Sincerely, Laurence & Reginald

The apartment is very well-located: you can reach Manhattan very quickly, subway is really close by.
Good layout: nice and pleasantly furnished space, good bedding, enough sheets and towels. Things that could be improved: kitchen utensils (especially sharp knives) and basic cooking products (spices, oil).
In this kind of apartment, you expect to hear your upstairs neighbors... but even if the wooden floor creaks sometimes, it is absolutely reasonable.
The landlady is lovely, discreet and very helpful (ready to help out and inform if needed), and makes you feel comfortable.
Rental is pretty high but I think this is the actual price in New York City... It's a shame... As I would love to come back!!
But even if it is expensive, I would gladly recommend this apartment

Thank you for choosing our apartment for your stay in NY. We are pleased that you had an enjoyable stay. Thank you also for your kind review. We appreciate your feedback and will male sure to upgrade the kitchen knifes and stock the pantry with basic cooking products. We have taken as many precautions as possible to soundproof, however it is an old house and the floors will creak a bit. We can't do much about the high cost of living in NYC but hope it won't keep you for visiting again. Sincerely Laurence & Reginald

My family and I stayed in this apartment for a week. The area is beautiful, convenient and relaxing, especially for families with children; it is very quiet but there are also restaurants and nice bars. The apartment is comfortable and has all the amenities (except for a dishwasher); the landlords are helpful and discreet. I recommend it.

Pleasant, charming and very clean apartment. It is ideally located, next to subway and shops, and undoubtedly in a quieter area than Manhattan. Owners are receptive and accommodating. Household linen is provided, which was really appreciated. Unfortunately, we suffered from backache because of the bedding but we are fragile. Plumbing should be fixed but it's nothing serious. We had a very good stay!

Answer by: Accommodation Owner

Dear Melanie,
Thank you for your great review. We are very pleased that you had a wonderful stay in our apartment.
Regarding the bed, it is the first time that we receive a complaint. Unfortunately, what might be comfortable/uncomfortable for you will be different for other guests.
We have checked the plumbing in the kitchen and bathroom and we were unable to find an issue. We wish you had talked to us about this during your stay!
Thank you again for your review. We hope to welcome you again in the future.
Best,
Laurence & Reginald

Everything was as expected. The kindness of the owners. The possible improvements would be: a bigger bed, a second TV and you can hear people walking in the upper level. I would like to stress again the positive attitude of the owners. They let us leave the apartment many hours after the checkout because our flight was scheduled at night. To sum up, I highly recommend it.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
Jan 31 2017

Thank you for your feedback. We are very pleased that you had an enjoyable stay in our apartment.
We might consider a larger bed (queen size instead of full) in the future but we will not add a second television!
We are aware of the noise from the upper level and have remediated it to the best of our abilities considering this is an old house. Hopefully this slight inconvenience will not prevent you from recommending our apartment to your friends or consider returning in the future.
Sincerely,
Laurence & Reginald

This apartment is well located, close to subway and shops. The neighborhood is pleasant... The place is very clean and comfortable, but some crockery is missing (plates, saucepans, stew pot, sharper knife). Owners are very discreet and nice, but you can ask them anything. On the whole, this is a very good apartment!!

This very clean apartment for 4 is a 5-minute walk from the subway. It has everything you need to have an excellent stay in New York City. The owners are available and very discreet. A bit noisy when kids left for school but we were not bothered: it was also time to get up in order to get ready to visit the city!

We only used the apartment to sleep after walking the city all day, and it was great. Clean, comfy, with a good mattress and sofa bed to rest, and a nice decoration. Even when we didn't get to meet the owner the first day, we got access to the apartment without complications. The kitchen looked nice, though we didn't cook during our stay. The only weak point would be some noise from the wooden floor of the upper level, as well as the floor of the apartment itself. For the rest, it's a very quiet location, but there are cafés and restaurants in the neighbourhood, and the location was perfect to visit NY with a metro card. We would repeat.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
Oct 26 2015

Good morning Sofia,
Than you for choosing our apartment for your stay in New York City. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your vacation and liked the apartment. We are well aware that there is noise coming from upstairs even though we have carpeted all the floors. It's an old house which makes it all the more charming!
Thank you for your understanding and we hope you'll choose our place should you visit NYC again.
Best regards, Laurence and Reginald

We loved it! The apartment was really cool, exactly as the photos, and the owners very helpful. The only "but" would be that we heard a lot the steps from the floor above. Despite that, we would highly recommend it.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
Sep 03 2015

Thank you Maria for your nice review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment. Even though we have carpeted the floors above the rental apartment and insulated the walls, noise might still come through (it's a 100 year old house). We hope that small nuisance will not deter you from coming back or recommending the apartment to friends and family. Thank you. Laurence and Reginald

We used the apartment as a family, and for that purpose, the size of the apartment is just ideal. The bathroom and the sleeping quarters were excellent. The kitchenette was perfect to do your own cooking. Supermarkets and an awesome bagel shop are in close vicinity. The landlady is very nice and helpful. The nearby subway (two blocks away) was in easy walking distance and so was the Brooklyn Bridge (20 mins.). The neighborhood was safe even during late hours. All in all, this was a great stay, and we would come back anytime.

We were very happy with our stay. The apartment was the perfect place to stay for a 10-day vacation in New York: rather quiet, bright and comfortable. The owners welcomed us nicely and they spoke French, so it was much appreciated as we do not speak English. Thanks again for this good address.

We had an excellent stay in this apartment. The owner is very nice. We liked the neighborhood. We felt like New Yorkers with shops, bars, playgrounds, supermarkets.

Good sofa bed as.well in living room . Place was quiet and Laurence..owner very pleasant and helpful for everything . Would stay there again as rates were very reasonable for space available . Much better than being in an hotel room which is why we always try to get a small apartment. Brooklyn is an ideal place. .away from all hustle and bustle of Manhattan. Plenty of restaurants around fairly close plus the cinema.

Very well equipped and spacious apartment for 4 people. Comfortable bedding. Very quiet street in a residential area. Short distance to subway station and easy access to the subway lines that serve Manhattan + convenience stores in the vicinity in which you can buy all you need for breakfast when you are coming late at night (try the blueberry muffins). For your information, the wooden floor is cracking and you can hear the owners of the upper floor apartment coming and going. But thanks to jet lag, we would get up early to explore the beautiful city of New York.We would like to thank the landlady for welcoming us and for her advice about the city (especially in French).

Answer by: Accommodation Owner

Thank you Jean Michel for your review.

We hope to welcome you to Brooklyn again soon.

We had an excellent stay at this vacation rental; the accommodation was quiet, clean and in a good location (all shopping facilities and the subway a few steps away). The hosts are nice and helpful and what's more, they speak French, which is a real plus when you only have a basic command of English! After spending the day in Manhattan, Boerum Hill is a relaxing neighborhood. We highly recommend this vacation rental.

A good place to keep in mind!

Upon arrival in the apartment, everything was perfect and as shown in new york habitat photos.

I want to disclose one very important point: the apartment was spotlessly clean, absolutely nothing wrong, not a speck of dust, the sheets had a lovely smell of washing powder, sheer bliss.

As for the owner, she is a very kind lady who is available for any question or the slightest problem. At the end of our stay, she called a taxi for us that picked us up right in front of the house. In short, awesome stay!! Thank you Laurence!!

Wonderful first stay in New York. The accommodation is very comfortable and has everything you need for an excellent stay.

The nearby subway with 2 central lines, the close by supermarket and stores made us confident that we'd chosen the right location (quiet and with the atmosphere of a neighborhood/village (Brooklyn is a very pleasant neighborhood!!)

The hosts are very hospitable and very helpful. They helped us "dive" into the New Yorkers' everyday life.

We spent 7 wonderful days in NY. We are very happy with this vacation rental, it matched its description and our expectations. Lively, very nice neighborhood with stores, restaurants and subway a stone's throw away.

Easy communication with the hosts (a French-American family who lives upstairs from the accommodation), they answered all our questions before our departure. They were available and helpful during our stay and organized a taxi for our departure.

In short, we'll do everything we can to return as soon as possible.

It's not because I've only recently come back from New York and because I found this city surprising and the people really cool that I gave this vacation rental an excellent rating. The vacation rental met - if not exceeded - all my expectations.

Great. The B. family was very discreet and the trust total and mutual. It is gratifying.

Nice accommodation located in a quiet Brooklyn street, inside a beautiful brick house. The accommodation is clean, the beddings are new and comfortable, the bathroom is spacious.

However, as the accommodation is in the basement, it is quite dark. It's also noisy and you can the owners' footsteps upstairs.

Still, we had a nice stay there.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
Sep 30 2013

Thanks for your review, Marie-Christine. This apartment is located on the garden level of an older brownstone which is probably why you found it to be dark.

Indeed, the landlords and their children live on the upper floors and due to age of the building, despite carpeting, some noises can be heard.

We are glad you had a nice stay at the apartment!

Our stay in NYC was amazing, the apartment nice and very well located in a quiet neighbourhood. It is placed at the basement of the owner house. Very cleaned and well furnished, the only problem was that the entrance door was not closing but there was another main door and a gate.

The owners were kind and not intrusive, if you are looking for a discreet place this is a perfect one, on the other hand at the check-in they spent only few minutes giving us the basic information on the apartment, no brochures were available in the appartment concerning supermarkets, restaurants and pharmacy in the neighbourhood.

We really enjoyed our stay and I would definetly suggest this appartment to any of my friends.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner

Dear Giulia,
Thank you for your positive feedback. We are delighted you had a nice stay and hope to welcome you in NY again soon. We have addressed the issue with the apartment door not closing, and it is now fixed.

We appreciate your suggestion about a brochure featuring information about the apartment and the local amenities. We are planning on making one available to our future guests.

First of all, I would like to talk about the owners because they were so pleasant, friendly and helpful with us. The apartment was very clean, comfortable, and equipped with all main thing that you can need (appliances, towels, dishes, etc).

The location is maybe 15 minutes walking to Brooklyn bridge, also you have the subway in 5 minutes and close the apartment we found butchers, coffee shop, pizzeria, etc, and the street is wonderful.

When we go back to NY, i will try to book this apartment, FOR SURE!!!

We had a great vacation, the accommodation was clean and comfortable, we didn't find anything that didn't work, the futon is comfortable. The only drawback is the noise, sometimes you can hear footsteps and running upstairs, but not all the time.

The owners are very kind, discreet and helpful. On our departure day, the landlady was very kind and took care of getting a taxi to newark airport for us, which was extremely helpful for someone like me who doesn't speak English.

I'll definitely return.

The owners are delightful. The futon in the living room is very hard, it's not easy getting any sleep because it is so uncomfortable :-(.

The apartment is located 5 minutes from the subway and the free wifi is a big plus

Given that this is the second complaint, we will definitely address the futon issue but cannot be more specific at the moment.

Beautiful rental, fairly comfortable. Although, there was no air conditioning, given that the rather noisy AC's that couldn't be turned on at night. The second AC didn't work because it wasn't blowing the hot air toward the outside: what a shame! There was also just one SMALL frying pan for 4 people; not enough equipment. Furthermore, one of the windows couldn't be opened because it was broken: it was hot and stuffy

On the upside, the apartment is very well located near 2 different subway lines (Bergen and Hoytt) and a shopping street. There's a launderette right across the street, which is quite convenient.
We really enjoyed having complimentary wifi.

We had a brief but warm welcome, so we didn't get the chance to go over the inventory / condition of the apartment with the owners. Therefore it didn't occur to me to leave a deposit! We didn't even realize this until several days later!!!

So to conclude, thank you for this very clean, comfortable (the kids thought the futon was too hard--it might be better to think about getting a sofa bed), and well-located apartment.

We highly recommend your services to our friends who want to visit NYC, and have shared your website address with many people.

Many thanks to Mr. and Mrs. B,

Satisfied customers

We had been in touch with this guest for weeks in advance of his arrival so he was aware of the fact that we were not going to be home for the 3 weeks he was staying. I made sure that he had the mobile number for my brother-in-law in case he needed anything.

The deposit was not collected as there was no certainty that someone would be around to return it.

This is the first time we have heard that the AC is too loud; we use the same type of AC for ourselves. The second AC, which was kept in a closet, is a back-up unit in case the main one goes out. The broken window he mentions is the window we use to vent the AC; he would have had to remove the venting installation in order to properly open that window which is not something we want guests to do. In the past, we have advised guests to leave the AC on low during the day with the windows closed, as leaving windows open during the day, when temperatures are at their highest, means that it takes a much longer time for the apartment to cool down.

The futon. Again, first time we receive this feedback. We have been looking at other convertible type sofa beds so that the bed can be more easily stored. However, convertible beds are never as comfortable as regular beds and should only be used for short periods.

The single frying pan was an accident. In cleaning the apartment prior to their arrival, it appears that our house cleaner may have neglected to restore all the items that had been taken upstairs to our dishwasher for cleaning.

In the future, we encourage guests to bring these things to our attention so that we can address them.

Accommodation ideally situated in Brooklyn, a nice and quiet neighborhood. The accommodation was nice to live in, clean and functional.

The subway is really very close by and you can go to Manhattan directly via the F line (allow about 20 to 25 minutes to reach Times Square)

The accommodation is very nice, located in a quiet neighborhood close to a shopping street, close to two subway stations and 29 min away from Manhattan. The owners speak French and are welcoming and ready to give information or be of help.

Careful with the subway at weekends as some lines are closed due to works and it can be tricky especially when you discover that three stations on three different lines have the same name (the name of the street they cross!)

Only one downside (but not one that disturbed us too much), there is period flooring, i.e. about 150 years old, it creaks and since the owners live upstairs with three young children, you can hear them in the morning and in the evening.

Still, I recommend you this apt where we spent a very good week.

Answer by: New York Customer Service

Further to this review, the owners verified that there is a bit of a floor creaking problem. They do their best to keep the children calm in the morning hours so as not to disturb the guests below.

Pleasant 2 bedroom-apartment, good value for the price, charming and discreet owners.

It is off-centered but thanks to the subway and bus, it is easy to reach Brooklyn-Williamsburg, Brooklyn-Park Slope and Manhattan (direct F line), the station is 5 min. away in Smith Street, a street with all the shops and a lot of nice restaurants.

My parents stayed at this apartment for a week and enjoyed their stay very much. One advantage is that this apartment is exclusively used for sublets, which means that it is very clean and not full of personal items of the owner.

I would recommend it without reservation to anyone who wants to stay in this area at a very reasonable price.

The main strength of this vacation rental is its location in Brooklyn in a quiet, residential area (we could sleep with the window open onto the garden) a few steps away from Manhattan with the subway. The shops and subway are close by.

Very kind owners who speak French. We could even pay the balance for the accommodation before we arrived and by check in euros as the owners were on vacation in the south of France.

A quite spacious basement apartment (ideal in the summer) for two people with a good price quality ratio, a big bathroom, lots of towels, linen, etc.

Very well equipped except for the dining table chairs and the iced up freezer. The bedroom is separated from the kitchen and living area, nice and friendly landlord! We felt very at home there for a week in the July heat.

The vacation rental is exactly as described and as seen on the photos (maybe the mattress would be the only downside). The owners are very friendly and kindly provide any extra (crib...).

The accommodation is close to the subway and only a few stations away from manhattan.

The vacation rental is in very good condition, very well decorated and clean. The owners were very kind, specially taking into account that we finally arrived at 1 am (not our fault), and we were welcome.

The only low light would be the location because it's not in Manhattan, where most tourist spots are located, but there is easy access by train.
Regarding the noise levels we could hear steps on the wooden floor in the mornings.

The location within the neighborhood was excellent. A place to recommend and where we would return.

We spent five fantastic days in the [Brooklyn] apartment and really felt as "Brooklyn-ers". The rooms and their equipment are perfect, the owner helped us whenever we asked for something. With WLAN Internet access we missed nothing.

Everything we needed was just some metres away: subway to Manhattan, deli, restaurant, etc. The neighborhood was very silent and we slept very well in the week before the NYC marathon.

Hopefully this was not our last stay in the Big Apple.

I have only one word "outstanding". For many reasons,

- The apartment has an excellent location:
- just one block from the Smith Street (with fashionable restaurant)
-one block from the subway F (Bergen St)
-five blocks from the subway A (Hoyt - Schermerhorn)
-six blocks from Macy's Brooklyn and others shops

- It's so easy travels from the JFK airport. Takes about 30 or 40 minutes with airtrain and subway A

- The apartment is furnished with excellent sheets, blankets, towels, etc.

- The neighborhood is safe at any time (We took the subway at 3 am without problems)

- Finally, The owners gave me excellent hospitality. (The first day [the owner] walked with us to show the subway, the supermarket etc and the last day We took a shawer in their bathroom before to go to the airport)

I recommend for all travelers that want to stay like in their houses.

It was a wonderful apartment in a great family neighborhood of Brooklyn. It was clean quiet and relatively spacious. The owners who lived in the upper stories of the building were friendly and helpful.

There were a lot of great inexpensive restaurants in the neighborhood and the subway to Manhattan was very close by. We would definitely use it again. It is a great option for visiting with one or two children/teens as I was.
