Welcome to your holiday home. We do all we can to make your stay the very best. From luxury bedding to laundry, lunch-to-go, meals, bars and insider tips to guide you through NYC. Just let us know about any interests and special requirements!
This is our apartment, we live here and we keep it absolutely real. You should expect to find a warm welcome and a place exactly as pictured or better. The space has great personality and some great features.
The room is large, airy, the bed is super comfy. Since you will mostly only be sleeping here it is INDULGENT! It is best for chilling out. It has gaming options and a 42-inch TV too!
You have full access to the apartment which is PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED regularly. We tidy up the apt/ensure supplies are plentiful in the bathroom, kitchen etc!
ONE OF US WILL ALWAYS BE AROUND to guide you if you need help. My name is Shaun. I am British, in my twenties, gay, a foodie and work in ARTS and CULTURE so if any of that grabs your attention I can definitely help you navigate NYC's tangled web of highlights.
Adam is American, in his early forties,straight, in the medical field, has worked as a restaurant server and has savvy tips for everything.
There is an apartment dog so if you have allergies be aware. This will not interfere with your stay; we walk the dog etc.
The SUBWAY STATION IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER and there is no noise pollution. We get the J train; one of the cities most reliable trains. It goes into Manhattan, LES (Lower East Side), East Village, Chinatown and Financial District. I goes direct to JFK too (PLUS - you are more likely to score a seat/it's overground so you can keep using your phone/seamless connection the the M Train...and the F a bit further on/breathtaking ride over the Williamsburg bridge/express service) always inspires me on the way to work especially on a nice day.
Bushwick is full of hip folk, families, clean, safe, busy and full of local shops/restaurants, recommended brunches, cool bars and even yoga studios.

I love the nearby subway (7th best out of 21 in the city according to buzzfeed) I love the supermarkets and all the local conveniences. there are bars and restaurants just a few minutes walk away from NorthEast Kingdom, awesome bars on Troutman Street or the world famous Roberta's Pizza.
This is Bushwick in Brooklyn so genuine, grassroots NYC experiences are aplenty but at the same time surrounded by the city's cool and hip centres like Williamsburg.
Access to Queens is surprisingly easy too if you fancy the film museum, PS1 or anything in the most multicultural borough.
If you can't get to the train from the apartment in 2mins you must be doing something wrong.
We have a herb garden in the summer, bake frequently if you fancy a snack. We make mean cocktails and have a regular stock of great wine, beers and spirits if you like a drink.
Absolutely great! Shaun and Charly (the dog) are great! The room is cozy and the overall atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing.
Shaun was a fantastic host. He was very easy going and helpful, providing us with towels, a comfortable bed and air mattress, and free reign (within reason) to his food and alcohol. We made the reservation less than a week in advance and he and his roommate Adam were extremely accommodating. A lovely place for students to stay, I say! We also really appreciated the flexible check in/out times and how close we were to the subway!
We were only in New York for one night, but had a great time staying with Shaun. He was extremely accommodating and made sure we both had a set of keys. He also was very hospitable, offering us lots of snacks and other items in his apartment. Everything was clean and cozy and Charlie, the dog, was sweet as can be. We'd definitely stay here again!
Great, groovy apartment with a very nice and cool host. Shaun was really generous, both with advice and creature comforts during our stay. The apartment is really well decorated, with shout outs in particular to the stainless steel appliances. Whilst not located in the 'trendiest' part of Brooklyn, it is a very short walk to the subway and Williamsburg etc. Overall it was a lovely stay. Never change!
We stayed there nine nights. The apartment is really comfortable and close to the J line. Although Shaun was not in New York, his roommate, Adam, is really nice and responsible. He answered all the questions. And we love Charlie and miss her so much. It's a really good place to stay.
Perfect for everything we were looking for. The place isnt far from anything, and Shaun's roommate, Adam, directed us to the most rad of pizza & beer spots called Roberta's. GO!
Parking was also very easy in the area which was a plus. The place was very clean, and our hosts were extremely accommodating. Even the dog was great.
Our stay at Shaun´s place were very nice and comfortable and we had a great time in New York!!! Thank you so much Shaun and Adam - it was superb - very nice place which we can only recommend!!!
I had a wonderful stay at Shauns and Adams place. Everything went very well. The place is lovely and Adam and Charlie (the dog) were a great hosts during my stay.
It was an absolute pleasure to stay at Shaun & Adam's place. This was the best place I have stayed at so far on AirBnB. While Shaun was not around for my stay, his roommate, Adam, was a great and very considerate & hospitable host; he made me feel welcomed & right at home! He was also very thoughtful, even saving me some food at home when I was out late one night. Apartment location is close to the subway, and you'd be staying in a clean apartment with a huge tub! Pictures on here are accurate! It was a short stay, but I would definitely stay with Shaun & Adam again. I highly recommend staying with them.
My experience in the apt is wonderful. The room is tidy. The bathroom is clean. The kitchen has plenty of supply. And the dog Charles is a very lovely dog. The floor is also clean and has only a few dog hair which i think it's unavoidable considering there is a dog in the apt. The apt is also fairly close to public transit and only 30mins away from downtown Manhanttan. There are however, a few minor issues which affect otherwise a perfect experience. First, there is no window curtain in the room. This makes it bright in the early morning and causes some privacy issues (my friend has to change in the bathroom). Second, there is no filter for the lower window. A time we tried to open the window, a fly came in and became quite annoying. But these are just very minor issues and overall I really love the experience in the apt. Thanks Shaun for clear communication and Adam for being a nice and accomodative host.
