Great Place

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 14 nights at this great property. The description was accurate and the property was clean and wellmaintained. John the owner provide good customer service and was there if you needed him. We sure would recommend this property .
We enjoyed the nice garden around the house. It is just a 10 minutes walk to the Ferry. And when we came "home" from a long day and our feets did not want to move any more, we took the bus S52 at the ferry Terminal which stops nearby
We had a great time.
John and family thanks again , and we hope to come back. ( we are allready missing it)
.With warm regards,
Fam.Delis

Beautiful, Clean and a Terrific Location

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home for a week while we visited New York City. The apartment was large and very clean and the proximity to the Staten Island Ferry was perfect. We really enjoyed riding the ferry past the Statue of Liberty on the way to Manhattan and returning home to a quiet place to sleep. The owners went out of their way to accommodate us and renting this apartment was absolutely perfect for our New York vacation. I highly recommend renting this apartment to anyone visiting New York.

Super séjour

  • 5 of 5
Séjour d'une semaine à 4 (deux parents/deux ados) dans l'appartement situé au RDC de la maison de John et Caroline. L'accueil est vraiment sympathique. Un super séjour ! l'appartement est spacieux, très propre, décoré avec soin et parfaitement équipé. Le calme du quartier et le petit jardin sont un vrai bonheur après une journée passée dans Manhattan. Beaucoup mieux qu'une chambre d'hôtel et beaucoup moins cher ! Nous avons pu garder la voiture de location (périple de 3 semaines de boston à Washington) garée dans la rue et très pratique pour faire les courses, aller à la plage etc... mais une voiture n'est pas nécessaire.

Perfect Getaway Accomodation

  • 5 of 5
We booked this lovely ground floor apartment for our 6 day stay in New York. We arrived around 9pm Sunday evening, having easily followed John's directions, and John was there to meet us and show us around. He also went to the trouble of getting us a few things for breakfast which was much appreciated. The apartment itself was very spacious and absolutely spotless. It is in a lovely quiet neighbourhood, you don't feel like you are in New York at all.
We used the free ferry service everyday to get to Manhattan, John has the schedule on the fridge. It was a 10 minute downhill walk to the ferry, which runs 24/7. The walk back home takes about 15mins as it is uphill part of the way. The ferry takes 30 mins to cross and you get to see Statue of Liberty and other sights on the way. The ferry stop in Manhattan was well connected to the subway and the hop-on hop-off bus tours.
The kitchen was well equipped with coffee machine, toaster, microwave, oven and stove, plus pots and pans if you wanted to do some cooking.
The bed was very comfortable and combined with the quiet neighbourhood we slept well every night.
The only downside is when you leave for the day you have to plan for the whole day as it is not practical to come back during the day.
All in all, a very enjoyable stay. We would recommend this place for couples or travellers who want to experience New York but have a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle.

Beautiful neighborhood, perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5
We hit a home run choosing to stay in this lovely apartment (first floor of an old victorian) in a wonderful quiet neighborhood full of trees and greenery. It didn't even feel like New York. We were able to park right in front of the house, and the walk to Staten Island ferry was extremely convenient - not to mention the free ferry is a true NYC landmark and a real treat to ride.

The apartment is exceptionally clean and was perfect for our needs. I love old houses anyway, so really enjoyed the fireplaces, original floors and mouldings, etc. We arrived very late Friday night, and John was outside waiting for us. He had stocked the fridge with orange juice, milk, bread, and coffee for the morning - which was definitely above and beyond. Thank you, John.

One tip for travelers - if you're driving over the Verrazano bridge into Staten Island to get here, make sure to take the bottom level of the bridge. It has the first exit off to Bay Street which you will need to take - top level does not. We had only a GPS and didn't ask for any directions from John, and found ourselves going over the bridge a couple times (and paying additional $$) before we figured it out.

Peaceful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
I stayed five days at John's and Caroline's place in Staten Island with my 15-year-old daughter.

The apartment was tidy and cosy, and even more spacious than I thought in the first place. The apartment covers virtually the whole first floor of the house. Kitchen is well equipped.

Neighborhood is a peaceful suburban area. It is nicely located 10-15 minute walk to/from St George Ferry Terminal. On the way there are a few delis and take-away restaurants. There is a classic view on Manhattan from the hillside - not directly from the apartment, but while you walk to the ferry.

John and Caroline are kind people. As we arrived in the evening, there were some necessities awaiting in the fridge to start with.

If you have never tried Staten Island accommodations while visiting NYC, I warmly recommend. It is only a 25-minute ride from Lower Manhattan by a ferry passing by the Lady.
