Sharon is a warm caring person.
We had a lovely stay at Sharon's home. It gave us chance to travel like a local and visit areas off the normal tourist routes and easy access to the main hot spots.
Room was excellent size and great bathroom facilities. Use of kitchen where we could make meals and drinks.
We hope to stay again one day.
Sharon est une personne aimante et très disponible
Sharon was a great host! Communication was prompt and flawless, Sharon really took care of every detail and kept us posted! Check in / check out was flexible and smooth. The apartment is cozy, has a nicely equipped kitchen. The beds were comfortable and clean and the in suite bathroom was comfortable. The location is absolutely magical, the ferry is a few steps away and you are in Manhattan in no time while enjoying the skyline all the way! I'm sure we'll be back next time we visit NYC! Thank you Sharon!
Sharon took my mum and myself last minute, two days before my trip as my previous place cancelled on me! She was so accommodating for taking us in on such late notice. She was so lovely and the place was perfect for our stay. It was close to subways and buses to take into downtown Manhattan. The room had plenty of space for two, with having 4 luggages! She recommended us places to eat at and what to do. Her son also helped us bringing up and down the luggage! She didn’t mind us coming home late any of the days and let us do whatever we wanted which gave us nice space.
I highly recommend staying with Sharon and I definitely will be stopping by again when I’m in NYC!!
My stay is not over yet, but I can already tell you about my experience. I am staying at Sharon's as part of an internship at JFK Airport. The house is incredibly well-located, just a few steps away from Dumbo and Brooklyn Bridge Park (in my opinion, one of the best neighborhoods), and it's conveniently situated in the middle of everything, including Brighton Beach, Central Park, and the airport itself. As for Sharon, she is a caring and kind-hearted person. We regularly have very interesting conversations about everything and anything, and it's always a pleasure. I can only recommend, it's good value for money!
It was my secend stay with Sharon in Brooklyn. I hat a wonderful time,Sharon is very nice and helpful,I felt like being home in this individual house.My App.was clean,I had a wonderful room and a pretty nice bathroom.
