Shelley and Jean-Luc were excellent hosts! They helped me to get settled and to find everything I was looking for. I very much enjoyed living with them – they are easygoing and made me feel at home. They even prepared us a really special and delicious fish dinner and we had a lovely evening!! The house was beautiful and the room cosy. The area has a really inspiring Carribean vibe, so I recommend exploring it and taking walks. You can find nice cafes and everything you need at a walking distance. It takes a while to travel to Manhattan, but with the Q-train that travelling was a pleasure with a nice walk to the train and good views from the Manhattan bridge. I also love running, and was happy to find out that Prospect park is at a running distance. I really recommend this place for an authentic Brooklyn experience!

Shelley's place was awesome!! It has so much personality just like herself. It is filled with versatile artwork and is tastefully furnished. The house also has a nice old cozy feel to it. Shelley herself and her husband are friendly and fun to be around. We had interesting dinner conversations and she definitely will offer you her skilled cooking hand. Neighbourhood is diverse and has a Caribbean feel to it (you can hear the occasional SOCA tunes) and lots of food options. Also, her place is close to the metro lines Q and 2,5. I would highly recommend and would go back in a heart beat. Wish I had more time to explore the neighborhood.

Shelley is a really good host. Her place is really confortable and calm. You have quick access to Manhattan with the Q or the 2, just need to walk a bit. The area is safe. You can find anything close to the house (food, pharmacy, gym, bus...). You should come here.

Shelley and Jean-Luc were welcoming and were super helpful, during all my stay. The apartment is charming and decored with good taste. It was exactly what I was looking for during my few days in NY.

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.
