About the Homestay
I have been hosting people from all over the world for over 15 years, and enjoy exchanging cultural ideas with my guests.I have a large house in the Midwood section of Brooklyn, It is a quiet neighborhood. My house is over 100 years old. It has been renovated and is extremely comfortable. Each area is decorated with art work and things I have collected traveling to other countries. My house is a short walk to the subway. Many people comment on how safe they feel in my area. I have two friendly cats. They will visit you only if you want them to. They stay out of the bedrooms.
