Here is Shawn's Feedback:

Fabulous Apartment
The apartment is fantastic and far exceeded my expectations. ↵↵The housekeeper went above and beyond to prepare the apartment for my arrival with gift wine, ride from the train station since it was raining, reviewed everything with me and was on hand to answer all my inquiries while i was resident. She is fantastic and made all the difference for my stay providing helpful tips, directions, and providing answers to all my silly questions. ↵↵The owner was also exceptional and did not leave me hanging on any question I had. Replies were always quick and courteous, directions were clear an easy to follow. ↵↵I can't say enough good things about both of them, the apartment and location. If you want a rental in Bad Ems, do not pass this by.↵↵The apartment is beautiful, charming, immaculately cleaned, and the location simply can't be beat. Wonderful art, fantastic furnishings - mostly antique, and simply elegant.↵↵Excellent!

What I liked best: Tough question!

What I liked least: Need sharper knives! :)
