PICTURESQUE TWO-STORY APARTMENT IN HISTORIC HOUSE WALKING DISTANCE FROM FERRY

Staten Island Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 5-6

Step into another world in this duplex apartment on the top two floors of a140 year-old hilltop Victorian home. Relax in the evening with the lights from the bay and the Verrazano Bridge outside the window. Yet you are just a 20 minute downhill walk to the Staten Island Ferry, the greatest free ride in the world. The house is surrounded by a lush, terraced garden with tree swing and tree house. Descend from our secluded hilltop into downtown Staten Island, a diverse, up-and-coming real New York neighborhood with a convenient strip of restaurants and small shops.

If you have the spirit of romantic adventure and hate overpriced hotel rooms, we can make your New York stay even more special, and affordable.

The Ferry to Manhattan: The Staten Island Ferry is by far the loveliest way to enter Manhattan, a 25-minute cruise across the harbor. You pass very close to the Statue of Liberty and watch the skyscrapers grow enormous as you approach. The boat runs 24/7, usually every half hour. It runs more often in rush hours, hourly very late at night. And it's FREE.

The walk to the Ferry from our house is an easy downhill stroll. Coming back you may prefer to hop a bus 2-3 stops, or a cab for $5-7.

Staten Island: If you stay more than a few days, you may want to see the sights of Staten Island itself, New York's 'forgotten borough.' These include Snug Harbor, a 19th-century sailors' retirement home turned museum and cultural center, the Jacques Marchais Tibetan Art Museum, and the Alice Austen museum, a beautiful waterfront house devoted to a pioneering woman photographer. The south shore of Staten Island offers many miles of sandy beach and boardwalk if you want to take a few hours off from being a tourist. The island is famous for its Italian food, but newer immigrant groups are making their contributions as well. You will find the prices for restaurants, like lodging, far more reasonable than in Manhattan.

We had a great time staying here! Though most of our time was spent sight-seeing it was a great place to come "home" to each day. As many have already mentioned the walk up is not for the faint of heart but my family and I found it well worth it! Craig and Elena were easy to contact and provided lots of local info. I would definitely stay here again! It's out of the way yet convenient to the city. We even walked to times square from the Ferry!

The property truly was picturesque and exactly as described. More importantly, the owner was was very pleasant and professional, and easy to reach before my arrival. He answered all my questions, sent me succinct documents describing how to access the property, and included information on local services and eateries. While I only used the property for one day, I can easily see a family using this as a comfortable, affordable week-long "home base" for an exploring New York City holiday.

Very clean, quiet and cozy place. The house is situated on Staten Island, 15 minutes walk from ferry. The apartment is huge, can easily accommodate 6-7 people. From one of the bedrooms there is a beautiful view over Verrazano–Narrows Bridge. Craig and Helena are very good hosts, they were very helpful and nice.
Thank you again! It was a very pleasant stay!

The decription is accurate.Great start to the day walking down to the ferry and yes the last streatch back to the house is steep however we only took a cab on arrival with our luggage. The view across to the Verrazano Narrows bridge is awesome.We felt safe walking back from a local restaurant on Victory Bld at 9:30 pm. Very pleased we chose this as our base. No disturbances at night. Elena and Craig were very helpful
