Nous avons séjourné chez Lou et Shannon pendant 1mois. Ils ont été très accueillants et serviables. Prêt à tout pour nous satisfaire. Nous avons passé un agréable sejour, la chambre était très propre ainsi que l'appartement. De plus l'appartement est très bien situé, avec plusieurs ligne de métro tout autour. Nous les remercions pour ce super séjour. Et nous leurs souhaitons une bonne continuation. Mathilde et Justine
Lou and Shannon were really excellent hosts and Lou was willing to stay up until 1am on a Thursday night to let me in after a long drive. The location is right under one of the main lines to get into Grand Central so transportation was a breeze. Also there was free parking readily available around the neighborhood. Great place if you want to have some privacy and explore the city on your own terms.
This was my first time using Airbnb and thanks to Lou and Shannon I had a great experience. Their hospitality, relaxed manner and great local hints and tips were invaluable. Thanks for making my stay great from start to finish!
I stay a few days. Lou & Shannon is great. Room is clean. Pet is cute and quite. They give me a lot of information about train, bus, restaurant. Nearby thai restaurant name Spicy is very delicious. Thank you!
Shannon & Lou are super nice host, we feel very lucky that we picked their place to stay. the location is perfect, very easy to go anywhere such as Time Square, Central Park and Broadway or any other places you would want to explore the city within 30 mins. It was definitely a great experience for us. Shannon & Lou are so nice that I didn't even realize that we shared the bathroom, everything is very tidy and clean, there was a noise problem but Lou helped us immediately, I can't say enough thank you to them. And we love their dog Turly, such a friendly and cute dog. would definitely recommend their place if u want to have a nice and convenient place to stay in NYC.
Myself and my boyfriend stayed with Lou and Shannon for ten weeks this summer. Both Lou and Shannon were extremely welcoming and made us feel at home immediately. They aided us in finding our feet in the city and throughout our stay, offered their help in any way they could. The apartment was fantastic with a wonderful view. Everything was better than shown in the pictures.
The location of the apartment was ideal with just a 10 minute subway ride to times square. You really couldn't find a better location for visiting the sites of the city. We would highly recommend staying with Lou and Shannon in their beautiful home.
Me and my friend stayed in Lou & Shannons room for a week and loved it! They were great hosts. Very welcoming and always willing to help us and to make us a comfortable stay. Their apartment has a great location, right next to 3 different subway lines and in a quiete and friendly neighbourhood. You can get into Manhatten in about 15mins. Our room was big enough to fit two girls with huge suitcases. It had a window and enough cupboards for our stuff. The livingroom, kitchen and bathroom were always free for us to use and clean during our whole stay. I can only recommend them and would love to always come back!

Hi, this is Shannon and Lou. We are young professionals that moved to New York to pursue our professional passions and explore the Northeast. Since we moved to New York City from Miami Beach, we strive to do everything NYC has to offer (which is never ending). Everyday is different in New York and a matter of 15 minutes is a different world! We are open to trying anything once and like keeping a positive outlook on life.
We are very passionate about traveling and learning about other cultures. Our travels have opened our eyes and provided a deeper understanding and interest of others. We have made life long friends around the world and love hosting them and others when they are in our city. We believe that the people that you are with make the memories that last a lifetime. It is hard to pick a favorite place that we have visited..... I cannot compare traveling through Guatemala with a local to walking over the Sydney Harbor Bridge but both travels will never be forgotten. I can say that Madrid has some of the best mussels I have ever eaten and Puerto Rico wins for the rice and beans.
Learn, love and laugh.... we believe are the keys to a happy, fulfilling life. We hope to share our home with you.
