Guestbook comments from the owner

Very comfortable and clean apartment, was well equipped with everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Great location near a nice beach, whilst we all love Manhatten it was great to be able to get out of the city to a quieter and calmer location after a day of sightseeing. Express buses from outside the apartment excellent, a comfortable ride to and from various Manhatten locations - just need to plan your day if you want to use them as they are basically for commuters and don't run at weekends. Other easy 24 hr transport options from Staten Island to Brooklyn and Manhatten were reliable, great views from the ferry. Marina was incredibly helpful and very friendly, available if we needed her but otherwise left us to get on with our holiday undisturbed. Overall, the apartment was a very cost effective way to spend a week in New York, far cheaper and much more comfortable / sociable than spending 7 nights in hotel rooms. We would definately choose to stay in this apartment if we visit New York again. Thanks to Marina for helping us to have a great holiday.

Unforgettable vacation in New York

  • 4 of 5
Nice place, located just near the coast of Staten Island , beside bus stop which is very convenient if you have no car. The house was clean and furnished ideally for 4-6 people, we were 8 people which made us feel a bit cramped, but otherwise we have no complaints. Our kids (all teenagers) loved the massive television !! Thanks for an unforgettable vacation in New York. We will return here again for our next vacation to NY, Thanks once again.

A 'Ferry' Nice Holiday!

A 'Ferry' Nice Holiday!
  • 5 of 5
Before we arrived we had no high expectations, but experienced the 'Wow' factor as soon as we walked through the door. With a spacious, well laid out apartment our thoughts were immediately transformed. The rooms were comfortable and clean.
The location was ideal with shops/bus-stops and the beach all within a 5 minute walk. After mastering the public transport system the route to Manhattan was a breeze. The best bus is the '51' which takes you all the way to the Staten Island Ferry which leaves from Father Cap. Blvd. taking twenty minutes to get to the Ferry. Alternatively, you could catch the '52' which also takes you to the Ferry but is a slightly longer route. The '53' will take you to Brooklyn over the bridge which leaves from the top of Sand Lane. The 'Metro' Pass can last for a week and can be used on buses and subways in both Staten Island and Manhattan (there are a few exceptions) and can be purchased from most shops.
The Ferry crossing was free and runs every 30 minutes which shows amazing views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty day or night!
Beach and the board walk excellent, with plenty of safety on the beach for swimming (also it's sandy!!).
Would highly recommend this place with plenty to do on Island and in Manhattan.
All in all ideal family holiday:) Thanks Marina.

Owner's Response: Dear guys,

It was pleasure to meet your beautiful family. I would like to add that the best way for Manhattan commute is by direct X-buses (Just 22 minutes to Downtown). Bus stop is at the same place as S51. X-buses are running to Manhattan in the morning (6 to 9:30 a.m.) and from Manhattan in the afternoon (2:30 to 7:30 p.m.), every 3-5 minutes! But it order to have X-buses covered by your weekly MetroCard as well as all other public transportation within all 5 boroughs you have to buy $55 card instead of $30 and save plenty of time. Hope you use my advise when you come back some day.

Perfect for families

  • 4 of 5
We spent 3 weeks in July to spend time near the beach with our 2 young boys. The place is spacious with full kitchen. The beach area is quiet and calm - nice secret in nyc. Parks for kids as well as jogging trails. Good restaurants that are walking distance. Neighborhood and beach could be a bit cleaner but this is nyc. Very safe even late at night.
The house is 5 min walk to beach and boardwalk. Only constructive criticism was our Stay was pricey for Staten Island location with no outdoor space and only 1 cleaning. landlord, Marina, is extremely nice and honest. She made the stay even better. Great location for families looking for a home rather than hotel.

Owner's Response: I'm happy you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you back. You visited during the beach season when the rates are in their highest considering the house is across the street from the beach. Of course they are much lower during fall-winter-spring seasons. My summer rates are still well below average market prices, that's why for summer time it's usually rented out about a year in advance. I provide 1 cleaning/laundry service a week. Additional service is available upon request for $100/visit ($80 for the cleaning lady, $20 for linen & towels laundry).

Wonderful stay in NY at Marina's place !
  • 5 of 5
We are a group of 11 friends with kids and rented this place for 10 days, very close to everything : Mike's unforgettable bagels, the ocean and the beach and a 23 mn bus ride from downtown Manhattan. The House is clean and well equipped and Marina always ready to help and provide useful advise as helping secure a shuttle from the airport to SI for example
We all highly recommand the place !

Owner's Response: It was real pleasure to accommodate your group. I did worry it would be not enough comfort for 11 guests, that 1 bath and 2 toilets are not sufficient for so many people. But you are so great people who share real friendship and enjoy each other's company that it did not effect your joy and had great vacation you deserved. Hope to see you back in New York!

If you don't mind..

If you don't mind..
  • 4 of 5
If you don't mind really squeaky floors, blinds that are broken to the back door (used as main entrance nit allowed to use the front door), couches that are over used and really uncomfortable to sit on (glad we didn't have to try to sleep on them) and old stained pillows We weren't allowed to do our laundry in the house nor were we able to touch the A/C which left my kids cold. Anyway Marina was helpful with the lay of the land and helpful in the prior plans and getting us to the house. The place was clean the water was hot and the towels were plenty (we had 7 people). The convenience of the house to the bus stop was useful and we could walk to restaurants and the grocery. So location was key when choosing the house and stayed true to that claim.

Owner's Response: "Overused sofa-beds" are just 2 years old, "old stained pillows" were bought less than 6 months ago and dressed in brand new luxurious pillowcases. "No laundry use included" is a paragraph in my leasing agreement signed by the guest, it's not like they found out about it at arrival. Public laundromat is in 5 minutes walk. Guests were advised that if they are out of towels all they have to do is to call me, and I would do the towels laundry for them. At arrival I offered this people to show how to operate central AC, but they said they were comfortable with current temperature, and were not going to change it. I do not see the reason they did not ask me to reset the AC (and save my money!) if they were cold, my own apartment was just below theirs, and I work from home, so help was always available. And they did use it, texting me 2-3 times a day with all kinds of questions about their daily activities, the best way to get to some attraction, etc. Their review just left me wondering...

Calm down from turbulent Manhattan

  • 5 of 5
We – a family from Germany with five adults – visited New York during Easter week 2014 and we stayed at Marina’s home during this time.

After arriving at JKF we took two taxis and handed over the directions Marina had sent via email to the drivers. We did a spot landing – and Marina welcomed us very warmly. Then every detail in the home was shown; we got a three page “manual” with all information needed including telephone numbers, local transports, local services etc. During our stay we could use her mobile phone.

The listing description was absolutely accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc. The photographs on the homepage show exactly the reality. The property was clean and well-maintained; due to cold weather conditions we needed heating, which was no problem. Marina provided an excellent customer service and we would recommend this property to all of our friends or relatives!

The distance to the nearest bus station (also for express bus) was about 100 yards. So we enjoyed travelling by local bus to Staten Island Ferry Station St. Georg (it takes about 20 minutes), taking the ferry, passing Liberty Island and then – after 20-25 min more – starting our visit to Manhattan at Battery Park. No stress, much fun. Same procedure back means coming home from Manhattan, slowing down, de-stressing and relaxing in the home or on the beach. Nevertheless also express bus to and from Manhattan is available (transportation time is nearly half an hour).

Due to the full equipped kitchen we were able to prepare full breakfast and dinner ourselves. There is a supermarket in 5 min footpath distance were nearly everything is available. Metro Cards can be purchased in a pharmacy nearby. Along the bus route from ferry station to home and around we found a lot of restaurants, bars etc. Due to WiFi all over the house everyone of us was able to communicate via Internet.

We spent great days in Manhattan, Brooklyn and also New Jersey. We saw a lot of hotspots and took thousands of photographs. But strolling along the beach, enjoying the board walk, finding information to the history of Staten Island, having short breaks with great views were the POI of our last day in New York. After calling a local transport service we were carried back to JFK by a minivan with a lot of time for check-in. No stress, much fun.

Last but not least: we enjoyed this week very much and would be glad to come back, maybe in one of the next years. Thank you Marina!
