The apartment was clean and quiet - exactly as advertised! We had a little mix-up over the keys, but Shelley was quick to respond and resolved the issue in no time. We loved our weekend in New York and will definitely be back again in future - thanks for everything, Shelley!
Shelley was awesome! Her space was beautifully kept, comfortable and easy to access! She was helpful in introducing us to the neighbourhood, telling us where to go and what to do and even called us a cab to the airport on our departure. A gem!
There was some late night traffic up and down the stairs that woke us once or twice, but it certainly wasn't a huge bother. Definitely cozy enough to fall back asleep quickly and not be bothered again :).
Ci siamo trovati benissimo. Casa molto accogliente e pulita. Shelley , la padrona di casa, è stata gentilissima e disponibile ad ogni nostro bisogno. Non ci dimenticheremo mai di questa bellissima (website hidden) siamo sentiti veramente come a casa.
We had a really good Time in shelley's flat.
Really nice, cosy, clean, everything you need is there, ready for you.
Metro and bus stops are just a few blocs away.
Shelley is helpfull and gives you great tips that make you feel more local.
Thanks for all, hope to come again soon.
A nossa estadia na Shelley foi excelente. A casa é completa, confortável e com tudo o que se precisa. Mesmo um pouco distante de Manhattan, o metrô é próximo e prático. Shelley é muito simpática e nos recebeu da melhor forma possível! :)
El departamento es tal cual se ve en las fotos: lindo, cómodo y espacioso (y la calefacción es excelente para el invierno). La única contra es que por momentos puede resultar un poco ruidoso, porque se escucha todo lo que sucede en el piso de arriba. Shelley, nuestra anfitriona, es muy amable y siempre respondió nuestras consultas a la brevedad.
Tiene que tener en cuenta que el barrio está realmente lejos, mínimo 45 minutos en subte a Manhattan. Es un barrio lindo, pero muy solitario, no se ven turistas en absoluto, y de noche puede parecer un poco inseguro (aunque nunca nos pasó nada).

About the Host, Shelley
Cool, artsy Caribbean chic with global/European style. I founded a local film and art festival and love my neighborhood, Flatbush/Brooklyn - I was born, raised and now am a property owner here! I love design, food and gardening. Oh! and I'm a media executive that is now doing her own thing which is great. Look forward to meeting you.
