Guestbook comments from the owner

Appartement très agréable et spacieux, très propre, confortable et vraiment très bien équipé, notamment la cuisine. Javier avait veillé à le rendre très accueillant par diverses attentions. Appartement très bien situé, à 10 min à pied de la station de PATH (qui circule 7/7, 24/24), puis 10 min de PATH pour le World Trade center, 20 min pour l'arrêt de la 33e rue. Supermarché au coin de la rue. Quartier dans lequel on peut circuler à pied tard le soir sans problème. Javier est un hôte très serviable, très disponible, qui répond quasi immédiatement aux mails et fait tout pour rendre votre séjour agréable. Je recommande chaleureusement son appartement.

Quiet and comfortable after a busy day in the city

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights in this rental, and were so pleased with the time we spent there. The apartment is very comfortable, light, and bright, and it served our family of four perfectly. It was just as the pictures showed, and honestly felt like a respite from the noise and crowds of NYC and the busy neighborhood in which it is situated. The property is about a ten minute walk from the Journal Square station PATH train and was very easy to find. I will admit that when walking in the neighborhood at night, we were definitely aware several potential troublemakers hanging out in the streets, but no one bothered us and we had no issues. We bought groceries at the market right around the corner and made breakfast each morning, then would head out to explore New York City until late in the day. We were always so happy to get back inside the apartment because it is very cozy and comfortable. One of our favorite nights was when we stayed in and ate leftover pizza and watched a movie. This property was a great value and we would recommend. Thank you Javier for your help and for the assortment of maps and business cards.

All positives..

  • 5 of 5

Location can't be greater, the place is surrounded with supermarkets, restaurants, laundromat(building also has a washer-dryer), bus stops, public parking lots and best of all, THE JOURNAL SQ PATH, which is just two blocks away. Most importantly it's SAFE. The place looks exactly the way it's in pictures, its bright, spacious and creative. Gives a homely feeling.

Javier the owner, is responsive, helpful and has maintained the place well. I am going back, whenever get a chance, mostly for the location.

A nice and bright apartment in New Jersey.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in the apartment during our New York vacation just before Christmas 2016. We were two adults and two children 6 and 9 years old. We liked the apartment it was clean, and bright. Kitchen was well equipped so it was easy to make meals in the apartment. Food store were located quite close. There were also some nice restaurants in the neighborhood. The neighborhood felt safely, and the people in the neighborhood were friendly and helpful. There was a 10-15 minutes walk to the train, and about 15 minutes travel to World trade center. The owner were helpful and easy to contact and answered quickly. We highly recommend this apartment.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was perfect for 2 adults and 2 children. It was very well maintained and comfortable. We enjoyed it and would stay here again. It is in a great location if you want to use the PATH for transportation. Although the surrounding area wasn't very well kept as there was a lot of trash in the streets and our first impression was not great. However, we quickly became comfortable in the area. Everyone we encountered was helpful if we asked and we felt safe walking the area at any time of the day. The apartment is also in walking distance to restaurants a grocery store which was very convenient. Also the owner responded quickly to all questions.

The apartment is very nice,clean and confortable. It has everything you need. Located 8 min by walk from Journal square in Jersey City. It is a good option for an easy acess to Manhattan vía WTC PATH station.

Apartment was the ideal place to stay for the month of October.

  • 5 of 5

I had a very positive experience staying at this apartment for about 5 weeks. The owner/landlord was communicative and helpful when I called with questions; Javier is a very pleasant person, and I enjoyed our brief conversations. Excellent customer service! It is obvious that he takes pride in and good care of his apartment. The photos on-line are an excellent representation of what the rooms look like.

The apartment was spacious, well maintained, contemporary, and a comfortable place to return to at the end of my days in the area. I went into Manhattan to be with my grandchildren most days, and the commute there was very easy...a 10-15 minute walk to the Journal Square PATH station, then a 10 minute train ride, then I was in the World Trade Center station. If I arrived back in Journal Square later in the evening, there were a number of cabs available at the PATH station, and the 5 minute cab ride was inexpensive. There is a large grocery store less than a block away from the apartment building and an especially clean, well-lit laundry area in the basement of the building. The owner provided plenty of linens, major toiletries and area travel information to make my stay comfortable.

I would definitely stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend it a relative or friend.. It is more spacious and much less expensive than a hotel room in Manhattan, and walking through the diverse community in Journal Square area enriched my NYC visit.
