About me: I am a MBA graduate who is pretty much down to earth. I am originally from London, UK and now live full time in NYC.

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 30 mins into Downtown 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

DON'T FORGET TO ASK ME ABOUT: Vehicle and Bike hire during your stay at Casa De Bel Soleil. Have the opportunity to get your own personal driver to take you around the five boroughs or the excursion of your choice, Please inquire for further details.

Bike Hire: Explore Brooklyn the best way possible - via bike!!! the many bike lanes Brooklyn provides allows for a smooth ride that uncovers Brooklyn at its finest - inquire for more details.

****NEW**** BREAKFAST AND DINNER
For an additional fee I also offer a catering service; breakfast as well as a dinner menu included into your stay. FULL ENGLISH BREAKFAST or standard authentic dinner cuisine from WEST AFRICA, WEST INDIES and EUROPE offered as examples. Just ask me for more details.

Guest Access

This adorable 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

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 ……", subject to schedules. Usually the house guests are from all walks of life and busy schedules but it is nice to get to know one another if we can (no obligations) 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 with 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.
