Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed here for 2 weeks with our 10 month old son. We wanted accommodation to suit our needs which was access to a kitchen and a separate living space from the bedroom so when our son went to bed early we wouldn't have to join him. Therefore 'Resort Living' was perfect for us. We had our own kitchen and living room with plenty of space for our son to play and a separate bedroom with an en-suite. The accommodation was clean and comfortable with plenty of towels and a cleaning service after our first week. The accommodation had a telephone, wireless internet, a PC in the living room and Cable TV with films on demand.

The apartment owner Marina was fantastic, very welcoming and helpful. She went out of her way to help us to settle in which made our arrival and first days so much easier.



The location was right across the road from the sandy beach where there is a very long boardwalk/promenade. There are plenty of local restaurants and takeaways nearby, as well as all the usual amenities within a short walk. We took the local bus and the ferry into Manhattan each day which did take time, about 1 hour from our door to Manhattan's South Ferry Terminal (including waiting time). Although you can get the Express 'commuter' buses which take 22 minutes into Manhattan we were unable to do this as we had a large 3 wheeled all terrain pushchair which was too big for the express bus and is more like a coach. In hindsight we would have been fine on the express buses with a small collapsable buggy.



On the whole we enjoyed our stay and had a wonderful time exploring Manhattan. We would never have been able to afford the same quality of accommodation in Manhattan and as a more affordable option this gave us the opportunity to stay for much longer. What we liked best was spacious and comfortable apartment. What we liked least was the commute into Manhattan on the local bus.

GREAT PRICE, CLEAN APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
I just returned from 5 days in NYC and was fantastic. Enjoyed all the places. The apartment in Staten Island is a nice and enjoyable apt and very affordable. The bus is right outside and takes you to the ferry. The ferry goes to Manhattan and runs 24/7. There is one subway station at the ferry that will take you to times square. It is around a 45 trek from the apt to Manhattan. They do serve beer on the ferry though. The bus is made to pick you up and drop you off right around the time the ferry is leaving. The boardwalk across the street is nice and can have a drink with live music. I enjoyed my stay at this apt and the owner Marina is great and very helpful and friendly. I definitely recommend this property. NICE.

WONDERFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5
I need more stars! Marina deserves a 10! Her apartment was perfect for us. It's located right across the street from the beach in a great neighborhood. The apartment is nicely furnished and was very well equipped for the four of us. There is a well stocked grocery store a short walk away as well as shops and restaurants.

Going into the city was super easy. The bus, less that a block away, takes you to the Staten Island Ferry. From there you can catch the subway or bus to wherever you want to go.

Although the apartment is great, the service is even better. We could not have had a better hostess that Marina! Upon our arrival she showed us the apartment, explained the bus and ferry service, told us where to find the shops and made sure we had her cell number in case we needed anything.

I would highly recommend her property to anyone that is visiting New York City. We had a great time and will be staying here again on our next visit!

RELAXING AND COMFORTABLE!

  • 5 of 5
After a 6 1/2 hour flight delay from Orlando to JFK, it was comforting knowing that Marina was only an email away. I had notified her of the first delay to our flight which started off being an hour late and she was accommodating with the change to our arrival time. This continued with 3 more emails apologizing for the increasing delay in our arrival. Marina was nothing but understanding and assured me that she would wait up for us even if it was midnight. It ending up being close to that time but Marina wanted to make sure that we had all the relevant imformation we would need to make our stay comfortable which we appreciated. The apartment was as described. It was comfortable and had everything you could possibly need close to the apartment. There is plenty of transport options to get you around the island as well as into NYC. The Staten Island Ferry which travels to and from lower Manhatten, drops you at the door of the subway and it is easy to get to the ferry by one of the local buses which is just 2 mins from the apartment. There are plenty of shops and restaurants close to the apartment and many more around the island, there is even a large shopping mall and a zoo to visit. Everyone one we met on the island was very friendly and helpful. As the buses and the Ferry runs 24 hours we had no issues with moving around the island, even late at night. I would not hesitate in recommending Marina's apartment to anyone I know who wanted to stay in NYC. Staten Island is so much more relaxing and easier to get around than NYC and is a cheaper option than staying in a pricey hotel. Thank you Marina for the opportunity to make our first visit to NYC a memorable and enjoyable stay. If I was to come back to NYC I would not hesitate in contacting Marina again and staying on Staten Island.

NO COMPLAINTS AT ALL!

  • 5 of 5
I'm late in posting this review but that is no reflection on the property, rather a reflection of my lack of organisation! I agree with all the good comments made in other reviews. The apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped and comfortable. Marina was very welcoming and took trouble to point out the local bus stops, restaurants and stores. On our last day, as the next guests were not imminently due, she was kind enough to let us store our luggage in the apartment while we killed time waiting for our evening flight home. Getting to and from Manhattan by bus/ferry was a fun part of the whole experience. We'd cross the road, catch the bus with the locals, get breakfast at the ferry terminal, then enjoy the fantastic views from the ferry. Buses & ferries run all night and we felt completely safe on Staten Island. The beach and boardwalk were clean and crowd-free but, for us as first time visitors to NYC, the main attractions were obviously across the water! So, if you're visiting New York and want a comfortable, sensibly priced place to stay, I'd wholeheartedly recommend Marina's apartment. Next time we visit NYC, we won't think twice about where to stay. Thanks, Marina, and sorry for the delay in posting feedback!

COZY, MODERN, COMFORTABLE STATEN ISLAND BEAUTY.

  • 5 of 5
We loved Marina's cozy apartment in Staten Is. It provided everything we needed for a 6 day stay in NY. Besides providing a clean & comfortable place for my family, Marina went out of her way us welcomed & settled. The level of customer service was by far better than 5 stars! I have already recommended her to friends & family!! She helped make our trip amazing for us all!! 100% satisfied!

A GOOD PLACE TO START FOR VISTING NEW YORK

  • 4 of 5
We (2 adults, 1 Children (14 years) from Berlin, Germany stood for 8 days in Marina´s guest appartment. We visit Staten Island and New York the first time. Marina was very helpfull to us. The apartment was very nice and a good place to start for tours to Manhattan. State Island is very nice as well. We get a car rental and visit some nice places in Staten Island ( a very green borough). There is a big Shopping mall in Staten Island, good restaurants ,movies and a very nice zoo. The Beaches of Staten Island are very large. We thank Marina for all and recommend the apartment .
