Other Things to Note
The decision we made to dedicate 30% of guest fees to helping Haitian fiends partner in Leogane Haiti for family and community development brings us both satisfaction and delightful, open hearted guests. Many say they come to us BECAUSE we are a social project.
The ground floor is a common area. We treat you as extended family; please keep outside doors locked and clean up after yourselves in the cooking area. .
We had a very pleasant stay with Lisel in one of the upstairs rooms in her charming Park slope brownstone. I was there to help my sister apartment-hunt and staying here really gave us a feel for the neighbourhood.
We had easy access to a kitchen, fast and free wifi, an impressive book collection tucked into every corner of the house, spotlessly clean room, bathroom and common areas, and a very welcoming host in Lisel. I would definitely come back and stay here again
Lisel's place was a comfortable place to stay for myself and my mom. Thank you so much.
A lovely house with a great community feeling in a really good location. Everyone was so helpful and friendly.
