wonderfull stay at hackensack

  • 5 of 5

We were two families with 8 person in total. The location of the house was just perfect for us. Close to Manhattan with bus transportation (30min.). The house was more than just right. Big rooms for everyone to be together or just By your self what ever was the feeling. Everything was in order. The jewel of garden was the swiming pool (relaction after day in Manhattan). Victor the owner was more than just key deliver. He was helping us in various business when ever we needed. Big thank you for a great stay. Definatelly worth of visiting.

An amazingly beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is museum quality. Every single room is beautiful and immaculate. Victor was the perfect host – he was always available but never obtrusive. I loved the fact that I could be in this beautiful home in a lovely neighborhood and still be within a 15 minute drive of Manhattan. I've already booked my next rental for next summer with the pool and Jacuzzi will be open.

A Friends and Family Wedding

  • 5 of 5

My fiancee and I rented this home as a vacation home for my friends and family to stay for our wedding. It did not disappoint. The owner, Victor, assured that we had everything and the home is beautiful-inside and out. When we arrived and talked to Victor, he told us he was unsure if he would keep it as a rental during the next year. Apparently, another wedding couple rented from him and proceeded to invite a 100 guests over to celebrate. It would be a shame if this home were not for rent anymore. The five bedrooms fit each one of us and there is plenty of space and bathrooms. My favorite areas had to be the finished basement with the huge tv and the beautiful backyard. My, now wife, and I have told Victor we would love to come back. The home definitely was worth it!

I'll never stay anywhere else when in NYC

  • 5 of 5

I felt like I was cheating. I got way more lodging for way less money. A run-of-the-mill 12'x12" room in Manhattan will set you back $250/night. Here, you get an entire house for the same price, and you're only a 20 minutes bus ride away from the Port Authority Station in midtown Manhattan.

If you have a big group that wants to enjoy NYC, but doesn't want to pay NYC hotel rates, then you must stay at Victor's beautiful home. The interior is in excellent condition and gives a vibe of warmth and comfort. The backyard is large and very well kept. If it had been warmer, the pool would have been great. We BBQ'd 3 of the 6 nights we were there. The kitchen allowed us to cook breakfast and dinner, thereby saving additional funds.

I recommend this property without reservation. Victor took the time to show us all of the property when we checked in, and was very responsive the few times we had questions. You will love staying here.

My Wonderful Stay in Hackensack

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely breathtaking, a dream house, a beautiful getaway from the city life I live every day. The house is a 100 year old Georgian home that has been renovated into a modern but homey intertior. The house was practically spotless when we arrived, in perfect condition, and the house is equipped with everything you might need during your visit. And if you do in fact require anything, Victor is more than accommodating.

My stay was a little more unusual than most -- I filmed my student thesis here (and had 13 other guests with me). This strange circumstance however should carry a lot of weight because not only is the home beautiful enough to put on film, but I asked so much of Victor by allowing this to happen on his property. Even with the extra hassle, Victor treated us like any other guests and provided excellent customer service.

I would definitely recommend this property for a stay in Hackensack. Its a wonderfully quaint small town and this house is the perfect getaway.
