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 location!!

  • 4 of 5

A few things to point out:

Apt is in a walk up (3 flights).. so if you have difficulty walking or taking stairs, you should know this ahead of time.

There are a few fast food restaurants and an "ok" diner all within walking distance, but if you like to cook, apt has eythg you need.

Very courteous,  accommodating and helpful owner... very quick to respond w/ all your questions

Free wifi but no cable t.v.

Great location but a lot of steep streets and stairs (again, in case you have difficulty walking)

Felt very safe/ secure

Very roomy for 2 ppl

Very quiet,  hardly heard neighbors

5 min (walk) to full size Supermkt

20 min (uber) Ellis island/ Statue of Liberty

(Fyi... statue closes entry at 3:30pm)

25 min (uber) to Newark airport

30 min (path) to  WT / Penn station

30 min (path) to Hoboken

15 min (walk) to Journal Square (path)

Thank you for a lovely stay, the apt was PERFECT for our needs, and so close to everything. Couldn't have asked for aythg better!! 😊?

Very comfortable apartment with all necessary amenities

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is nicely decorated, comfortable, and the owner is exceedingly helpful. It is great value for the money, but that is reflected in the location, which isn't ideal. It worked well for us (family with 2 teenagers) though, as the Path was only a 10 minute walk away. We would stay there again.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Javier's home was a great place to stay. It was comfortable, clean, well equipped, efficient. It was very convenient to a supermarket and to Journal Square. Javier left a lot of information about the area and directions to NYC. We will definitely stay there if we have occasion to be in the area again. Plus, Javier was very attentive and very helpful.

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.
