My stay at Emmett's was excellent. His apartment is quite comfortable and more than accommodating. Emmett was genuine and very hospitable, we also had a number of interesting conversations. He is respectful of your space, as you should be of his. There is another room that can be shared by other airbnb guests, which was never a problem when needing to use common areas like the kitchen, living room, bathroom, etc. I'd highly recommend staying at Emmett's apartment and would consider re-booking in the future!

My stay at Emmett's apartment was great, I had a very good time there. The apartment is beautiful, very well maintained, clean and comfortable. The building itself, especially the lobby, may look a bit run-down, but don't let that put you off, because you step into another world once you cross Emmett's threshold. The bed was the best of all AirBnB's I have had so far. I often nearly overslept because of that, but Emmett was so kind to wake me with a friendly knock on the door. The bathroom has a jacuzzi and as a guest you can also use the living room and kitchen, as well as the washer and dryer! The apartment has 3 bedrooms, two of which can be used by AirBnB guests, so you might not be the only guest in the house. During my stay I met Ticiano, Suzan and Nick and they were all very friendly people and we had a good time chatting and sharing dinners. Emmett himself occupies the 3rd bedroom, where he often studies and works. I've come to know him as a very friendly and helpful man, concerned for your well-being, easy to talk to, very reasonable and hard working. I can recommend this AirBnB to everyone looking for a temporary home.
