About Nadine Sernaglia

My husband Serge and I came from france to the United States in 1982. We have been living on the West and East coast of the country and back East, we felt in love with this typical brickstone building. Both of us working in NYC wanted to have a nice and quiet place to leave with an easy commute and it is why we did not hesitate to buy this nice property. We did a lot of renovations to make the place more comfortable and to our taste.

From the minute we stepped in the door, we knew we were going to have a good stay. Nadine has furnished and equipped the apartment so well, it doesn't feel like 'just a holiday let'. She seemed to have thought of everything and the kitchen was well equipped to make meals in. The bed was wonderfully comfortable - especially welcome after traipsing the sites all day.

The apartment was spotless when we took it over and there were plenty of cleaning and toilet provisions. The laundry facilities were perfect too.

The apartment is located a short, flat walk to the PATH trains and only three stops to the World Trade Center hub. There are a variety of shops in easy walking distance.

We have previously stayed in Brooklyn when we've visited New York, but would highly recommend this apartment as easier to travel from and the comfort and location can't be beaten. It also helps that the apartment is not up any stairs.

Basically, we can't recommend it highly enough :). We agree with nadine's own description of the property and the pictures don't really do the apartment justice.

Lovely Apartment Convenient to PATH

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful gracious hosts who accommodated my early arrival and extended departure. The apartment is clean and esthetically pleasing. It had everything I needed to stay in for a meal when I chose. Bed slept great and linens were clean and soft. The outdoor patio and landscaped yard is an extra bonus for getting a little greenery in the city. I would definitely stay again and recommend.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

What a gem this is!! Walking distance to journal square for easy access to the Path train, great amenities, and lots of space. I don't want this spot to become too popular because I want to stay here again.

Exceeded our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this vacation rental; The accommodations exceeded our expectations... It was immaculately clean, the apartment decor was lovely, the amenities outstanding & it was conveniently located near PATH train station for a short ride to NYC; In addition, the owner was extremely kind and helpful providing extra blankets and chairs when we had some additional guest for a family gathering one evening; The location is priced fairly without the 24 hour loudness of Manhattan... I highly recommend and would not hesitate to go back. Thanks for the great memories!

Property was excaulty as describe.

  • 5 of 5

This unit is Perfect for long or short stay for 2 people. The path train is minutes away and it take 25 minutes 6 stops to Midtown and only 15 minutes 3 stops to WORLD TRADE CENTER. I REALLY felt at HOME as I cooked breakfast everyday and worked out at the 24 hr fitness club a short walk from the unit.

The only thing I would like to see is a chopping board in the kitchen and a blanket for the chilling nights. The heating system works great but I prefer to have extra covers.

I'm always in the New York visiting my Daughter I will be renting this unit in the near future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice words. I have a white plastic cutting board at the bottom of the cabinet next to the range. I am sorry that you did not ask me or M. for an extra cover because I have extra ones in the closet next to the laundry behind the rolling dresser. Looking forward to have you again as a guest! Thank you so much

Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

This property worked out great for our family of four. The location was great. Very easy to walk around the corner and catch the PATH. We felt safe in the neighborhood. Woken up a couple of times by the neighbor running up and down the stairs in the middle of the night, but it didn't put a damper on our stay. Overall we slept very well.

Parking is downright tricky, as would be expected in the area, but it really didn't pose any problems. There is no issue with street parking on the weekends. You are just limited to 2 hour parking 8-5 M-F, so you need to find a garage for your car. We used Square Ramp parking as PATH was full and it was reasonable at $11 for the day. The lot across from the Burger King is monthly only.

Their is a nice Italian bakery a short walk away, and fairly well stocked convenience store at the Journal Square PATH station.

The pull out bed was more comfortable than most of the pull outs on the trip. The kids slept very well.

We would definitely stay here again.
