Best Airbnb Brooklyn homes you can rent

If you're looking for a modern one-bedroom, Reva can hook you up at her 21-story high-rise building near Boerum Hill, Fort Greene, and Cobble Hill. Inside, you'll have twinkling city views, an open layout, gorgeous natural light, and top-of-the-line finishes from Fisher & Paykel, Bosch, Grohe, and Kohler. You can also enjoy a tenant lounge area with indoor and outdoor areas, the roof deck, and the basement laundry. Manhattan also happens to be on your doorstep, along with Brooklyn of course. There's no TV here, but honestly, you're in NEW YORK, go and live your own TV show.

Get the ultimate Brooklyn experience by staying in a historic brownstone with artistic decor, chic furnishings, and quirky touches. The house is furnished with a huge living room and a brand new kitchen. There are four bedrooms, making it large enough for the whole family. Plus, you've got a yard for drinks outside after a day of exploring the best of the city. Around you, you'll find many Bay Ridge restaurants, including Tanoreen, The Best Company, and Las Mragaritas. And you're only one train away from Manhattan – nice!

Stay in one of Brooklyn's most beautiful neighborhoods at this totally renovated apartment in Boerum Hill area. The home itself is historic with a bunch of charming features. Stretch out in the queen-sized electric adjustable bed and if you have more people with you, they can sleep on a sofa bed in the living room, which has huge windows and natural sunlight. There's also a full kitchen and a washer/dryer. The best part? You're just steps away from the bars, restaurants, and shops on Smith Street —how chic!

Get the Williamsburg experience by staying in this 1,000-square-foot duplex loft just steps from Domino Park. There are two floors and a private entrance straight into a charming open living space, leather sectional sofa, a flatscreen TV and Bluetooth soundbar, access to streaming services, plants, and a 7-foot stainless steel bar with a lifted banquet bench for eating and working and drinking. The full kitchen is swanky with all the mod-cons you need, while the upstairs loft bedroom has another workspace, a large clothing rack, and cabinets for folded clothes. And of course, after a long day, there's no better place to crash than the king-sized bed. 


This one-bedroom, ground-floor flat is one fantastic place for you to stay in the heart of Bushwick. With a private back deck and yard, it's a perfect place to relax after exploring New York in the summer. Down the road, you have neighborhood bars and the L train which will take you straight to the city. Inside, you've got WiFi, a Bluetooth speaker, a big smart TV, and a writer's corner if you need to work a little on your trip. As for the interior design, the space is decorated tastefully, making it a relaxing urban oasis.

This apartment is decorated with "saucy art and vintage mid-century swag, great for low maintenance travelers or a fun crash pad for friends having a night on the town," the host says. The clean, private room has its own entrance but shares a kitchen and bathroom with the host, who says they offer a perfect space for single travelers, fun, low-key couples, and others looking to enjoy the nearby nightlife in a "nonjudgemental atmosphere where they can let their freak flag fly." It's also a 420-friendly but tobacco-free home, in case you're looking for that.
Want to stay somewhere truly unique? This is one funky Clinton Hill apartment, with vibrant interiors and plenty of space and easy access to the AC subway line (which gets you into Manhattan in 20 minutes). The quiet garden-level brownstone apartment has a colorful bedroom and living room, with a bright kitchen that's a welcoming place to cook dinner. When you're ijn the mood to dine out, there's a plethora of trendy places to explore around you – you're in New York for goodness sake!
