Staying with Shelley was lovely. She was very helpful and had a lot of great advice about the area, and the city in general. The house is beautiful and has lots of character. Shelley had a great vinyl collection too, which I enjoyed listening to!
I had the most wonderful experience staying with Shelley, her house is very warm & friendly, I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay
Shelly place is close to the metro and everything you need in Brooklyn, Shelley recommendation are great!
Thank you Shelley & Jean Lu for hosting me and I will miss our conversations
I will be back!
Shelley's home was the perfect place to stay as I was in town getting to know different areas of Brooklyn and apartment hunting. Shelley was more than welcoming and very generous in her advice and suggestions along my search findings! It was very much appreciated and the stay was great. Quiet block, great sleep and easy to scoot into town with the subway a few blocks around the corner. Many thanks!
I stayed 3 weeks in Shelleys house and I had a great time. The house is beautiful, very clean with lovely details and decorations. Shelley is a very warm, welcoming host and i felt very welcome at her house and her great family. Manhattan is easy to reach by train in about 30 min. The neighborhood is safe, even by night. So dont be afraid of Brooklyn :-) I would definitely recommend Shelley's house and hope you see you soon again.
Shelley was very accessible and responsive to emails prior to my arrival in NYC. The advert accurately describes the facilities on offer, and the rooms, bathroom and communal areas are kept clean and tidy. The nearby subway station also makes commuting to other parts of the city a pleasure. Overall, a very comfortable and pleasant stay.
Shelley is a very warm and welcoming host. She has been so helpful in getting to the know the area and in general with advice about the New York experience. The house is beautifully and considerately decorated and styled. This was the perfect place from which to base myself during my stay here.
Shelley and Jean Luc made me feel at ease, the place is very peaceful , clean with great vibes. Close to the subway, my stay was quite agreable, thank you.

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.
