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.

Great place to stay for visit to NYC

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Javier's apartment. It was very spacious, clean and well equipped. We found it easy to travel over to Manhatten. It was an easy walk to the Path Station and then a 10 min train ride to the World Trade Centre. We flew into JFK airport and it took approx 2 hours to get to the apartment. However, it's very close to Newark and would recommend flying into that airport if staying here.

Javier provided us with lots of information prior to our arrival including a recommendation for a Mexican restaurant around the corner. The food was excellent and very reasonable. There is also a very good market around the corner to pick up groceries. There are shops & pharmacies between the Path Station & the apartment if you need to pick up anything.

We would certainly stay here again.

Great stay ! Super séjour !

  • 5 of 5

We are a french family of 5 traveling around the world and we stayed 7 days in the Apt. The appartment is great, well equipped, and clean. We felt comfortable with our 3 kids (8, 6,5 yrs old) even if they slept in the living room.

The neighbourhood is multi-cultural, everything is a 5 minutes walk. There are good restaurants and fastfoods wich were really nice when we we came home tired by our walks in NYC.

The Apt is really close from the Journal Square station. We can be in the heart of Manhattan in 15 minutes thanks to path train.

We had a great journey and staying in this appartment made it cool and easy.

Great thanks to Javer ! Sincerely.

Karim and Christine

Beautiful apartment in nice, convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and beautifully decorated. It was easy to find and secure, with convenient places like a small supermarket, a convenience store and many food options nearby if you're planning to stay long. The property is a little older (really, where is Jersey isn't?) but it was extremely well-maintained and charming with all sorts of things like tourism guides to the area and extra bedding and sheets conveniently there for us.

The owner was super helpful and answered all my questions via text very quickly and with great detail. He really went above and beyond as far as helping with public transportation schedules and advice about food and, really, anything I needed. It was my first time in the New Jersey/New York area but thanks to Javier, I felt right at home =]

My family and I had a great stay as we visited the Statue of Liberty and enjoyed the finer points of NY and NJ and I would certainly recommend this property if they ever needed a place in NJ! Thanks again for the great stay!

Simply Excellent , Feels like home, quite neighbourhood, Ideal location 10 mins walk to Path station

  • 4 of 5

Ideal location, just a few mins from local shops and loads of options for eating out. It's about 10 mins walk from Path Station (Journal Square) and hence 30 mins to New York via train. Train fare is $2.75 to NY.

Property has good facilities and is calm and quite and the best thing is " it feels like home"

Thank you Javier!!!

Would highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, Asif, for your review. Just a clarification about the time to New York. The path train subway line to the World Trade Center/Lower Manhattan takes 10 minutes only. The one to midtown 20 min. Looking forward to your next visit.

Clean, cozy, safe and close to the PATH Journal Square stop

  • 4 of 5

This was a great choice for our quick, family trip to NYC. The apartment accommodated my husband, two sons and me well. The owner, Javier, left us an extra mattress and linens so that everyone had an enjoyable experience. He was very attentive and available to answer questions anytime. Having the full kitchen was great for a quick breakfast in the morning. It is located about a 6-10 min walk to the PATH journal square stop. It was clean and well taken care of for the age. It also had WIFI. Very good deal for the price. Would recommend.

Jose Carlos (Brazil) - Cozy and confortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved Javier´s apartment so much that we decided to stay there again. We´ve been there at the end of 2014 and came back at the end of 2015. It is cozy, confortable, good for 4 people. Supermarket at the corner and a few minutes walk from Journal Square Path Station (if you´re not heavy on luggage it is not a far walking). Javier gave us good assistance and everything was perfect. Javier´s apartment is a good choice to go to Manhattan, Hoboken (the nicest view of Manhattan and a stop at Carlo´s Bakery) and to shop at Jersey Gardens. We recommend.
