Guestbook comments from the owner

HI Gina,







Just a quick message to say thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely apartment. Both Charlene and I both had a great time and felt very safe, relaxed and warm during our visit to New York. It was nice knowing you and your family were close by and willing to help out if we needed anything – we’ll definitely be recommending your place to friends and family should they wish to visit NY soon! Please pass on our thanks to Haajiim and your husband for their help and kindness too J







Kind regards

Stayed 5 weeks. We were very pleased. Excellent!

My wife and I moved to The Bronx from another state, and we needed a furnished place to stay while we found our permanent housing. This property more than met the need. The home is nicely maintained and is in a quiet neighborhood. IT has cable TV and WiFi. It is close to all kinds of shopping (grocery stores, malls, Target, etc.). It is also just a block and a half from the Dyre Ave subway station (5 train). We took the train into the city, and we also drove in. Either way, it was very convenient. The neighborhood is safe.

Gina was an excellent and most accommodating hostess. She was always available in case there was a need, and she went out of her way to make sure that we felt at home. She even brought is some herbs and peppers from her garden for us to enjoy. She was always ready to make a restaurant recommendation, or to let us know where there were interesting sights to see in The Bronx. We will miss being there. We highly recommend this property for a stay of any length. You will feel at home.

A home away from home.

It was everything advertised. The train was walking distance, it was easy getting to and from Downtown Manhattan. Parking was available outside every night, I did not have get up early to move the car from one side of the street to the other. The neighborhood was quiet and safe.

Thank You, Gina, for making me and my daughter feel at home.

A true hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5
I really don't want to write this because I don't want to give up this secret. This is an awesome apartment. I would recommend it to anyone I know who is looking to stay in NYC. At the same time, the owners deserve to have this made public for their hard work of keeping this place in such beautiful condition.

Be prepared for a very diverse and friendly neighborhood. One short block away will get you to Dyre Ave. This area may be a bit concerning to someone who isn't open minded and from way out of town, but the people are all very friendly. I happily walked with my wife and young children up and down this street many times with no concerns at all. There are both buses and elevated subway trains that stop on Dyre Ave. These can be accessed within a few minute walk from the house.

A huge advantage is parking for your vehicle, if you have one. Weekday parking can be a bit limited, though I never had to walk very far. Once evening arrives, the street begins to clear out and you can park right in front of the house. It seems that out of town people like to drive to this neighborhood, park their cars, and then catch the train into Manhattan.

The only downfall which some may find, which is a result of location, is the fact that this house is at the top of the Bronx. Subway rides to lower Manhattan will be 50+ minute depending on where you are going. Coney Island is 2 hours. I didn't consider this a problem at all.

Once again, this is a great apartment and the owners are great people. I would happily stay again and again.

Our first time staying in the Bronx. Gina and family are great hosts . The home is lovely and the apartment is well kept and was close to everything on our vacation agenda. I did not have any problem finding parking right in front during our stay. Even when one of us got sick, we still had a good time. There are many little details that make this a great home away from home. Thanks Gina.

Our host was gracious and welcoming especially as our arrival was in the early hours of the morning. The apartment is exactly as advertised in a quiet neighbourhood and we felt safe at all times. The nearest subway is easy to locate and under 5 minutes walk from the apartment but the journey into Manhattan takes about 40 minutes. Supermarkets and shops are within 10-15 minutes walking distance. Gina and her family were very helpful in any problems we had and our overall experience was a pleasant one. I would consider staying here again.

Our first stay in the Bronx

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I have come to New York over 15 times. For the last visits we have used VRBO. This was our first stay in the Bronx, but due to our one week stay, we wanted to find something more economical. The place was EXACTLY like the pictures. It was spacious, clean, and looked just like the pictures. We arrived early, but the place was ready for us. We dropped off our bags, and took a walk to the port. We had lunch at a wonderful restaurant called Marina Grill. Next day we put on 18 miles walking to City Island. Beautiful walk. Tried out some of the pubs, and ended our day at Dryer Street Fish Market, which is a block and a half away from the apartment. We invested in a week long subway pass for 30.00 dollars. Well worth it. We even took the Subway to Queens before we left for LaGuardia. Much cheaper than a taxi ride. There was a short bus ride involved in this. Please note, that this neighborhood is a working class neighborhood. We were the only white girls on the subway. I just want people to be aware, that it was so stinking safe. People looked out for us. They made sure we always knew where we were going. Not once did we feel uncomfortable. It was a 45-60 minute subway ride into Manhattan. That was our only complaint. But if you aren't planning on going into the city everyday, or you don't mind the time on the subway, then this is a great place to stay. We also felt very safe walking at all hours. Thanks Gina.
