We are a family of four - two small boys under 5; and have just spent ten lovely days in New York - all on Staten Island at the Victorian Villa. Linda was there to greet us and was most accommodating - the apartment was pristine and very well set up - more than we could have imagined. It is the little touches like the hardwood floors, linen, well-appointed kitchen etc that set this place apart. Linda and Neil were always on-hand to assit with our touristy enquiries and were extremely knowledgeable and willing to assist.
The area is quaint and has a lot of character. If you are happy to immerse yourself in the neighbourhood, which we did, you'll love it. Whether it is watching the Staten Island Yankees play a game at the water-front stadium overlooking Manhattan, eating at the local restaurants (the Spanish place is phenomenal) or just chatting to the local folk.
We took the ferry almost every day from the house and it was a breeze - a short walk to the terminal and a free ferry to Manhattan. You will never tire of the superb views.
All in all - a great stay and this apartment is highly recommended for those who are seeking a coomon-sense alternative to a hotel room...
We came in to visit family on Staten Island and explore NYC and this was the perfect place to stay. It's about a 10 minute walk from the Ferry station and all the entertainment of NY. The apartment has all the amentities to prepare meals and relax whenever we wanted a break from the hectic pace of the city. The owners were always available to help us throughout our stay. I'd highly recommend the Victorian Villa apartments.
We had a lovely 6 days exploring NYC and coming "home" to the Victorian Villa. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, a short walk (uphill) from the Staten Island Ferry. The livingroom, bedroom, kitchen, and bath are all nicely appointed. This is my first stay on Staten Island, and the St. George area has a good mix of neighborhood restaurants, grocery stores, delis, and bakeries. I have rented other VRBO properties in NYC, and this one is right up there at the top of the list.
This apartment was delightful, and fit our needs perfectly. Linda met us and was very welcoming and helpful, with great ideas for neighborhood places to visit. You can park your car right outside and forget about it during your stay---the ferry terminal is so close, and the neighborhood is interesting and varied. Staying here during NYC Marathon weekend worked great for us. We'd recommend Victorian Villa to anyone, hope to return soon ourselves. The Polish cafe on Conger was a great place to eat, as was Pier 76 on Bay.
we are so glad we picked this rental for our weekend of shopping and theatre. the rooms are even nicer than in the pictures and nice and cosy in november. shower: great. the short walk to the ferry was exhilarating -- we never even considered driving over to manhattan. just knowing the car was on a safe, quiet street made our stay relaxing. linda kindly directed us to a yummy polish restaurant at the bottom of the street and helped us find shopping on staten island. we are raving about this place to our friends. so close to manhattan yet a world away for security and quiet. and with the ferry available we could stay out in manhattan as late as we wished. a very enjoyable stay. thank you linda and neil.
We rented two of the apartments in Victorian Villa for a month, while working on a project in downtown Manhattan. The location is superb, just a short walk to the Ferry into Manhattan and to a large variety of small shops, Saturday farmers' market and some really good restaurants. Our apartment, Anna, on the 2nd floor, was charming, spotless and outfitted with everything we could possibly want or need. It overlooked the lovely private garden and even had a small porch with table and chairs, perfect for coffee and the Sunday Times. Parking on the street was free and plentiful, as promised. The owners were gracious and very responsive but not at all instrusive. All in all, the apartment was one of the highlights of our month in NYC.
The best restaurant we ate at during the month was Enoteca Maria, on Hoyt Street - just a five minute walk from the apartment. Definitely worth checking out - each night a different Italian "grandmother" or nonna, cooks dishes from her particular region. Fantastic!
