About the Homestay
My name is Stephanie; I am a Pastry Sous Chef living in Brooklyn, New York. My family has hosted international students for approximately 10 years. I grew up in this neighborhood and considers my apartment’s location to be ideal. It is conveniently located near several convenience stores, various restaurants, coffee shops, walking distance to the train station and an express MTA bus that goes to Manhattan.
I’ve traveled alone since I was 13; I’ve stayed at several homestays, while studying abroad. I can relate to any challenges that you may face being away from home. I would love to share my home and hospitality through this homestay, as well as my love for food, travel, culture, and New York. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out to me.

How do I book?
Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.
When do I pay?
Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.
When can I share my contact details?
Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
