The place was nice and spacious, and Shem and Jean were really warm and welcoming. They went the extra mile to make sure the stay was good, which made the entire experience even better. Would recommend to anyone visiting Manhattan/Brooklyn!

Very spacious room in a nice apartment. We felt very comfortable and cozy during the cold days in NYC that we spent at Shem’s place! The description and fotos are accurate and the area of Brooklyn is quiet but you still can reach some nice cafés in walking distance and there are …

I stayed at this location with two other girlfriends and it was perfect for the purpose we needed it. The location was a little far from some things but public transportation was walking distance away. The decorations/place were exactly as pictured and very clean. We shared this …

Like many travellers we arrived a bit late (40 minutes). Because we where late they decided to fall back from our original agreement (late checkout and keeping the bags untill 5pm in the checkout day) and instead we got kicked at 12:00. we had no place to put our luggage untill o…

Response from Shem:
Hey Shir, I apologize things did not go the way you had wanted to. Our airbnb posting clearly stated that the apartment was 2 bedrooms, being shared with other airbnb'ers and that the common areas were being shared. As for the late arrival, we normally accommodate any late traveling. We extended our check in time to a 2 am arrival time and you arrived at 3:30 am with your partner with no notification, and it helps us to better accommodate you with a proper heads up on the situation. It was unfortunate that we could not extend another favor and hold your luggage for you past the 12:00 pm check out time because we had another guest checking in the same day, but I did my best in providing proper resources for luggage storage in midtown where you can store luggage for $10 a day. I apologize that you felt like you were "kicked out" at the proper check out time, but I do want to make clear that we have airbnb housing rules to upkeep in order to make preparations to accommodate the next guest. I hope this situation serves as a great way to improve as hosts/guests. I hope to work on better communication to avoid a situation like this in the future. Thank you for your stay and I wish you and your partner the best in your future travels.
