The room has a desk area, full length mirror, clothes storage space and deep mahogany hardwood floors.

This space is ideal for someone looking for that clean, comfy, cozy private haven to have a restful nights sleep.

The area offers great high street shopping on Rockaway Avenue and local amenities such as a 24 hour Laundromat, supermarket and take away eateries (KFC, McDonalds and Subway on Rockaway Ave are to mention a few). The area also boasts a wide choice of public transportation subway options with Rockaway Avenue and Broadway Junction stations. This is where the A, C, L J and Z lines meet and it is considered one of the largest subway stations in Brooklyn. The Broadway Junction subway stop is also near the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) at East New York Station. Bus options are widely available from the B60, B7 B12 and B14 connections. It is accessible to Brooklyn Museum, Botanical Gardens, main Public Library and Prospect Park - ONLY 15-20 mins into Manhattan!!!!!

A great hidden gem in the Bedford Stuyvesant sub section of Ocean Hill. It is an eclectic neighborhood mix where old meets new. Young urban professionals with a sprinkling of family orientated fun that also offers pockets of stable refined residents, that welcome the burst of energy and diverse changes that the neighborhood brings.

***NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH 2020 CAR SERVICE*** Fear not when hanging out late and you want to experience the NYC nightlife. I have a great relationship with my local reliable car service. Ask me about arranging a late night car service that can collect you from the local station during those late nights home. If you're coming to stay for the first time, I can also arrange car service to pick you up from the airport or your desired pick up point.

I look forward in having the pleasure of hosting you in my home when you visit NYC :-D

****NEW**** BREAKFAST AND DINNER

Guest Access

This delightful space comes with a shared bathroom and kitchen AND a spacious private retreat outside, which you will find very peaceful and relaxing, terrific for escaping the scorching NY summer heat. Bed linen, towels and kitchen utensils are always provided.

Interaction with Guests

I like to arrange at least one social night for the house guests in the neighborhood as part of Casa De Bel Soleil’s “Welcome to Brooklyn ……” Usually the house guests are from all walks of life and busy schedules but it is nice to get to know one another at least once and I always like to make people feel comfortable during their stay. I ask myself when I travel how I would like to feel at “home” in the space I’m temporarily staying at.

The Neighborhood

What I LOVE about Ocean Hill?? It is that undiscovered hidden gem in the Bedford Stuyvesant sub section of Ocean Hill. As Bedstuy neighborhoods florish with more residents and great places to hang out at, the changes are rapid. Ocean Hill has a charm that it is slowly sharing will those fortunate to live here. It is an eclectic neighborhood mix where old meets new and boasting young urban professionals like myself with a sprinkling of family orientated fun that also offers pockets of stable refined residents, welcoming the burst of energy and diverse changes that the neighborhood brings.

Getting around

The area offers great high street shopping on Rockaway and Pitkin Avenues. The area also boasts a wide choice of public transportation subway options with the 3 Train at Rockaway Avenue. You can also catch the A express, C, L, J and Z trains at Broadway Junction, considered one of the largest subway stations in Brooklyn. The Broadway Junction subway stop is also near the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) at East New York Station. Across the road you will find the L train subway stop at Atlantic Avenue. Bus options are widely available from the B60, B7 B12 and B14 connections. You can catch the B60 on Rockaway avenue going in two directions in Brooklyn; Canarsie and Willamsburg. The B60 will also take you to the J train subway stop at Chauncey Street. Take the B7 bus on Thomas Boyland Avenue which takes you down to the J train stop at Halsey Street. These trains lead you directly into China Town in Manhattan.

  • Thank you Michelle for all your kindness and hospitality. It was great staying at your place in Brooklyn, 4 blocks away from Rockaway Ave subway station. I came back one day after midnight walking from the station with no worries. The house has all appliances and the room has a new A/C equipment and a privated bathroom.
    Michelle was really kind and apart from giving tips on how to commute and where to go she also arranged a cab driver to take me to JFK airport. Very close and easy access to the airport.
    I sure recommend her place.
    Wishing you the best Michelle! Go Ghana go!
    Regards from Brazil!

  • Michelle was a great host. She was always there to answer my questions. Even when I bothered her via text at midnight or 6 am, she replied within minutes!

    The place was very clean and comfortable, exactly as represented on the site. Having a clean, private bathroom was very convenient.

    The Manhattan commute wasn't bad, either. I had a summer job in midtown and it took me about 45 minutes door to door, including a 6 minute walk to the C train.

    Overall, my stay was very pleasant. Would stay there again.

    June 2014
  • I found Michelle to be welcoming, friendly & very helpful. The room was spotless & comfortable with lots of thoughtful little inclusions.

  • My stay was brief, but perfect. Michelle couldn't have been more kind and helpful. Her home was very clean and tidy and it was very handy for getting to the airport, just what I needed. I highly recommend staying with Michelle.

  • Michelle was a lovely host. Welcoming, friendly, and communicative. Her directions were great and the place itself was nice and clean. The private bathroom is a nice touch. She has a lovely, friendly kitty that lives in the house but does not come into the room (unless you let her). It is nice to get home and get some pet therapy.

    The neighborhood is up and coming, and socio-economically diverse, which is a trait I enjoyed. It is about halfway between JFK and Manhattan, so it is easily accessible from both and I would highly encourage anyone staying here to explore Brooklyn - this is only a few stops from Park Slope, for instance, wich has a much more charming night life than Manhattan (except for Alphabet City, but I am biased...)

    May 2014
  • I really appreciate Michelle's consideration for her guests as she helped me find my way to the house and had provided a very safe and clean place with a private shower, desk and tv.

    May 2014
  • It was pleasure to stay in Michelle's place. It's comfortable and clean, close to public transport. Michelle is a great for host-helpful and super nice ;) If not her probably I would be still waiting for my baaggage delivery. Thanks for everything:)!

    May 2014
  • Michelle is very welcoming and helpful host and room was nice and clean. Combination of very reasonable price and short commute to Manhattan makes it a specially attractive.
    I'll definitely stay there next time in NY.

    April 2014
  • This was a great space- it was large, very clean, and private, and having your own bathroom is a big plus. Its also pretty close to the C for easy access to Manhattan. Most of all, Michelle is a wonderful host - she is friendly, respectful, and so helpful and kind! I would stay here again anytime.

    April 2014
  • I think the best part of the Bedstuy Ensuite is the hostess Michelle. She is one of the most engaging hostess I have come across since I began to use Airbnb. She willingly went out of her way to address concerns and problems and also, just a great person to talk to in general. The location was quite close to the subway station, making commute to Manhattan easy (30 ~ 45 min. depending on traffic). Also, her cat Xenovia was so charming. I just simply adored her.

About
…… and welcome to Casa de Belle Soleil which is my humble abode – it is a quaint yet simple haven that will cater to your short term accommodation needs for your NYC summer vacation and beyond. Casa de Bel Soleil is a great hidden gem in the Bedford Stuyvesant sub section of Ocean Hill. It is an eclectic neighborhood mix where old meets new and boasting young urban professionals like myself with a sprinkling of family orientated fun that also offers pockets of stable refined residents, welcoming the burst of energy and diverse changes that the neighborhood brings. I live in a century old home which has a lot of charm, charisma and pizzazz and the steam heating system is phenomenally comforting, especially during those cold winter months in NYC winters and the sporadic sound of hot water passing through the radiator pipes brings that extra touch of comfort but you yourself will be very warm and toasty at la Casa de Bel Soleil :-) Hopefully from my commentary you may be able to decipher that I’m very down to earth, friendly and I definitely do have a positive attitude and outlook to life. I enjoy hosting especially on Airbnb as I like compiling itineraries, providing information to curious first NYC timers, basically providing guests with ample information hence making them feel safe and secure in their surroundings. The five things I cannot live without are: •Books: I have many favourite authors but the main two that come to mind are Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Octavia Butler •Travel shows: I LOVE travel shows!!! Globe trekker and Anthony Bordain’s “No Reservations” are among my favourites •Food: I have a passion for cooking when I can and good food. I love Indian, Carribean, African, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Thai, Mexican, Italian, French, Chinese/Vietnamese (Notice how all the spicy foods are listed first) •Traveling: I have traveled within Europe, West Africa and the US East coast and plan to do a lot more traveling. I love meeting likeminded folks like myself from all corners of the globe. •Current Affairs: I love being kept informed and up to date on world economics, political and social issues as well as being savvy in every day life issues as well. I plan to travel once my schedule permits and I enjoy airbnb hosting because I get to meet different people from other parts of the world and strike up relationships that hopefully leads to a place where I could stay on my travels. … and finally, About Me: I'm a MBA graduate who works Manhattan, NY and New Jersey. I am also involved in a plethora of projects and welcome like minded people like myself to collaborate and share ideas with, from ALL walks of life. I’m originally from London, UK and now live in NYC full time for the past ten years. People may say I am a New Yorker now but I like to claim this on a physical realm especially applying it to the term “acting like I belong”. Once you get this pegged down, there will be no stopping you lol. About You: I like to feel that you would be easy going, clean, tidy and independent, that you would feel comfortable in your space and visa versa. I am respectful of one’s privacy and trust that you would also be the same way too. Feel free to check out Casa De Bell Soleil listing by scrolling to the bottom left hand side of my profile page. Also, feel free to check out my reviews from past guests recommendations AND references so you can get a better idea of who I am. You will also find prices for nightly, weekly and monthly stays once you click on the listings tab on my profile page. I look forward to hearing from you soon … PS: My favourite motto for the moment “Natural talent, intelligence, a wonderful education – none of these guarantees success. Something else is needed: the sensitivity to understand what other people want and the willingness to give it to them. Worldly success depends on pleasing others. No one is going to win fame, recognition, or advancement just because he or she thinks it’s deserved. Someone else has to think so too” – John Luther
