I really enjoyed staying with Sharon. The room is lovely and spacious. The bed is so comfortable! I could sleep very well!!
The location is nice. You can go to Manhattan by subway or ferry. Ferry is relaxing and easy. I love it!
I definitely want to stay again when I go back to NY. Sharon, I can't thank you enough. You have a heart of gold!
On a eu l'impression d'être chez un membre de notre famille.
Très à l'aise.
Pour les personnes très simple je leurs recommandé Sharon.
Pas très loin des stations de bus.
This guest awarded the host 3 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
I stay with Sharon for 14 days with my boyfriend and it was perfect! Sharon is so nice and welcoming. It was perfect not being afraid for our stuff or just find a nice home sweet home after long days in New York! Thanks for everything Sharon it was a pleasure! Ophelie
Sharon is sympathatic and hospital. Her house is nice and well situated, very near from bus to go quickly and safully to Manhattan.
We really enjoyed our stay with Sharon who is so welcoming and accommodating. She took us at very short notice with our two children and was very warm and helpful. It’s a wonderful house in a vibrant area. We would definitely recommend it to anyone and stay again if back in New York.
Sharon welcomed us warmly and was available for any questions throughout our stay. We enjoyed the big room, private bathroom and cozy bed. In the room we had a big fridge, table and 2 chairs, so that we could also have snacks and prepared our trips to NYC. A bus stop is near by. We enjoyed a great stay. Thanks!
Super accueil de Sharon pendant 10 jours.Sharon est une personne très discrète mais qui est présente si on a besoin de renseignements ou d'aide.

Sharon was a wonderful host. She was kind and very helpful. She was always available if I had a question and kept me informed on who was coming and going from the house. Thank you for a great 10 weeks! All the best!
It was lovely the meet Sharon and share a meal with her at the famous Wo Hop restaurant in China town. Our room was spacious and although it was nice to have a welcoming bowl of fresh fruit in our room on arrival, I have come to expect the light breakfast offered by Homestay and indicated on Sharon's description. This was not forthcoming. As an asthma sufferer I found the room and entry staircase dusty. I would also have liked some specific directions on how to get to Sharon's address in Fort Greene before we arrived. It is very simple when you know! All the best Sharon, I hope you enjoy the Australian wine in the coming holiday season.
