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.
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.
We really enjoyed our stay in the apartments. It had everything we needed and didn't look for anything else. The only down fall was the we could hear the people up above quite clearly which woke us at night or in the mornings. Other than that everything was perfect :)
Had a wonderful stay in this apartment, adequate facilities and Marina is very helpful in providing information about the local amenities. Situated a walk away from the beach,but very easy for local transport to and from Staten Island Ferry into Manhattan.
We had a great time! I was a little hesitant staying in Staten Island as I knew nothing of the area. I have to say it felt like home. Traveling into the city could not have been easier and the ocean and beach across the street were amazing! Marina was the perfect host. Thank you for making us feel so welcome!
We now have a place to stay when we make our trips to NY, no more looking for groupons and deals on line. : )
We visited New York City this summer an stayed at Marina's appartment.
The appartment was like in the description.
We just had to cross the street to arrive at the beach or to take the bus to the staten island ferry to Manhattan.
Shops and restaurants just around the corner. We felt safe in the neighbourhood day and night.
Marina is a very warm and friendly host.
We could really recommand her appartment. When we visit New York City again one day we hope to stay at Marina's Appartment again.
The location was great. It was a short walk to the beach and fairly convenient to reach by public transportation, even without the express bus. The property was clean, well decorated and easily slept 6 people. The price was great. Marina is very involved in the stay. She takes the time to show you around the area and is there most times when you come and go, since she lives in the other part of the house. The people upstairs were not necessarily loud, but you can hear every footstep.
