About Chris Vaz

Former Investment Banker

Currently Real Estate Investor

Chris Vaz purchased this apartment in 1983

Why Chris Vaz chose Weehawken

Vintage mansion home with unique location

on a cul-de-sac in an upscale, totally residential neighborhood and beautiful surroundings in addition to ease and convenience of travel, but most of all, for the tranquility and scenic beauty of the Hudson Riverfront.

What makes this apartment unique

Travellers to this little corner of Heaven will enjoy the tranquility they seek after a hectic day sightseeing/ shopping and dining in New York City. Once a month -- no set date - they might even enjoy a free music concert on our waterfront hosted by the Hudson River Performing Arts Center under the auspices of the Township of Weehawken.

Needs deep cleaning and maintenance

  • 2 of 5

This review is not about the owners, Chris and Julie are very responsive and nice people. I’m just writing about the house itself: location is great, wonderful views of Manhattan a few steps away. However, the property needs deep cleaning and maintenance. Seriously!!! If guests are being charged for cleaning, the house should be cleaned. Basic maintenance, cleaningness and working appliances are minimum expectations for any rental property... All of these basic criteria’s were not met at this property. Hope it will be a better experience for other guests staying there in the future.

Owner's Response: This is one negative review out of the scores of five-star reviews on this property. Helen and her companions checked in at 2:00 in the morning and we accommodated a late check-in request. I personally asked Helen if she found the apartment to her expectations and her answer was "yes". We always correct any deficiencies if brought to our attention. Sorry you were disappointed Helen -- we will work harder to make you happier the next time.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place to stay and relax, especially after visiting the city. Chris and Juli were great hosts and so very nice. Chris was helpful in informing us how to get into and get around in New York City. A more charming couple would be hard to find. The beds were very comfortable and thank goodness the heat worked perfectly. My family and I would surely stay here again. The view into Manhatten from across the river was just footsteps away from the front door as was the bus stop to take you into the city. Thanks Chris and Juli for a lovely Christmas week home.

The home and owners are beautiful.

  • 3 of 5

Pros: The owners were very nice and welcoming. Our fridge was stocked with breakfast and drinks and they put out fresh fruit on the dining room table. The neighborhood is beautiful. The bus stop was very conveniently located for a 15 - 30 minute ride to NYC depending on traffic. After spending the day in the city it was a nice, quiet location to come back to.

Cons:

The second bathroom is very small (no room to undress). We had three couples that ended up sharing the main bathroom for showers. Due to the picture and the water front description on Home away , we thought there would be a waterfront view, but there is not. However, there is a view of the skyline just a short walk away and it is spectacular! The interior door latches are very old, therefore some of them do not close, which causes issues for privacy.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and can not say enough about the hospitality that we were shown.

Thank you Chris and Julie!

Fabulous property with views to die for

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late afternoon to be met by Chris who showed us round his wonderful property. We had the whole of the first floor which with its 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms

large living area ,kitchen and dining room was more than big enough for my family of 6.Chris who had very kindly stocked the fridge full of food and drink then walked me around the area showing me where to get the ferry from over to Manhattan plus the bus stop for the excellent round the clock 10 min bus ride into central Manhattan.There are several good eating places and shops all within walking distance of the property.Finally this review would be incomplete without mentioning the amazing views of the Manhattan skyline virtually on the doorstep.Do not hesitate in booking this property it will not disappoint.

Great place to stay.... minutes away from New York....

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend staying here, great location close to public transport and supermarkets... nice quiet area. Time Square is a 10 minute bus ride away and at the end of your day you can return to peace and quiet of Weehawken.

Chris and his are beautiful people and have lots of information to make your stay more easy.... and thanks for the cold beer on arrival Chris.

A great place to base yourself for a holiday....

Cheers

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Great location with surprisingly easy access via public transport or uber into downtown Manhatten and Times Square . Great views across to the city from along the street . Apartment very quirky and owners very helpful and gave great information . Plenty of room for a family , neighbourhood felt safe and supermarket walking distance as is a excellent Mexican restaurant . If you want to experience NYC bit have a bolt hole to escape the hustle and bustle would recommend.
