Overview

About the property

Minutes to Manhattan In Boerum Hill, BK: Modern, Comfy, Cool & Spacious 2nd flr

The spacious 2nd floor of my brownstone features 2 bedrooms and a large common area for lounging and dining. It has everything you want: open common space, private bedrooms, a Carrera marble bath, guest-controlled heat & A/C as well as a washer/dryer. It features a great open layout with a fully outfitted kitchen area open to the dining and living area for communal cooking & sharing. WiFi included, along with flat screen TV, Wii, & Apple TV for streaming audio & video.

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 outstandingly 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.

Our brownstone 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.

Pets are welcome, based on the outcome of a conversation between potential guests and myself!

I'm generally here 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 the extra guest fee is effective when the 2nd bedroom and/or aerobeds are used. Should you be a couple sharing one bedroom, just let me know in your request and I'll adjust the quote.

Also note that extended stays of a 25+ days will include additional cleaning and security fees. That keeps everything in good shape for everyone — thanks for understanding!

About Noreen O'Donnell

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 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 we inevitably share...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 adventure...)

I'm a passionate traveler and animal-lover in-between pets at the moment.

Noreen O'Donnell purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Noreen O'Donnell chose Boerum Hill

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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!

Nice and cosy apartment in quite neighborhood with central location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is cosy, very clean and well equipped, has everything for comfortable stay. The neighborhood is great as well as location, just a step from a Subway station, a yoga studio, nice restaurants (we loved Ki Sushi most of all), Trader's Joe, Barnes & Noble and a lot of other stores, in walking distance from Brooklyn Heights. The owner was always helpful and very responsive. We had enjoy our stay a lot and will be happy to come back some day. Thank you, Noreen!

Perfect Brooklyn Location to get anywhere in NYC!

  • 5 of 5

Noreen’s apt was perfect for us. The location is great for every needed amenity, whether it be groceries, dog food, fun shopping, church, subway to anywhere, restaurants... all within a quick walk. The neighborhood is extremely safe and very family oriented. The apt itself is immaculate, and beautifully decorated with an abundance of linens and towels. The kitchen is well stocked, and the living and dining areas are quite spacious. The bedrooms are both very comfortable and large, and each has a closet. The bathroom is also spacious and well lit. The apt has light coming in from front to back, so it’s nice and bright. Noreen is a very nice host. Communication is excellent. Checking in and out is efficient, and you really feel like it’s your own home. We will definitely request to stay at Noreen’s apt again. Thank you, Noreen, for your gracious hospitality! The treats you had awaiting us was a nice touch!

Everything we expected and more!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is so comfortable and homey, with warm touches throughout, so that we didn't feel like we were staying in a sterile, barely-furnished holiday rental. The neighborhood can't be beat; it's so easy to get to Manhattan but we had a few days when we didn't even bother...there are so many sights, restaurants and shops to explore here. Noreen is a kind and helpful host and we hope to visit again before long! All our best to Baxter!

Location

Car: not necessary

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!
