About Chris Vaz

Former Investment Banker

Currently Real Estate Investor

Chris Vaz purchased this apartment in 1983

Why Chris Vaz chose Gateway Region

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.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

There were five of us in our group and we had more than enough room for all of us.

The owners of the home, Chris and Julie, live on the top floor of this spacious property, and greeted us upon arrival. They were so friendly and helpful during our visit.

We had the entire second floor; three large bedrooms and an alcove with a nice futon, two bathrooms with showers (one with a tub), spacious living room, dining room and kitchen, and even a small balcony off the kitchen overlooking the yard and garden, and even a huge pear tree that offered shade and privacy on the balcony.

They welcomed us with fresh fruit on the dining room table, food, bottled water and soda in the refrigerator, and some food in the pantry as well. The kitchen has everything you could ask for if you wish to cook a meal.

The neighborhood is quiet and safe and only about a block away from the New Jersey Transit bus stop to go into the city.

Chris and Julie are warm, caring, and intelligent people and it was my privalage to have met them!

I would recommend this beautifully comfortable safe home away from home to anyone wishing to visit NYC and have a quiet respite from a busy day, and I hope to visit again some day!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Catherine, for your favorable comments. We very much enjoyed hosting you and the young ladies accompanying you. You were all warm and caring and it was a pleasure taking care of you even though you needed little attention from us. And thanks so much for taking care of the apartment and leaving it in such fine condition. You are most welcome to share our hospitality anytime!

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

Russell

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.

Hôtes très sympas, discrets mais attentionnes. Quartier résidentiel calme avec vue époustouflante dur la high line de Manhattan. L'appartement est très agréable, u' bus vers Manhattan passe toutes les 3 ou 4 minutes à 100 m de la maison. Supermarché ouvert 24/7 à 10 minutes. Couchages parfaits et sanitaires bien adaptes pour 6 personnes.

Just like home, only better!

  • 5 of 5

Chris and Julie made us feel like part of the family. We showed up to a smiling Chris and a refrigerator with food in it. We enjoyed every bit of the stay and would HIGHLY recommend this place. We WILL be back and look forward to seeing Chris and Julie again. Everything was easy and close enough yet far enough away. Thanks again!

A Wonderful Visit

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a lovely time during our visit to the home of Chris and Julie. The house was in a nice neighborhood just one block away from a gorgeous view of the New York skyline! There were seven of us and the house was perfect and had plenty of room for all of us! The owners met us and showed us around on our first day. The house was clean and well stocked with everything we could need. It was conveniently located with only a short bus ride into NYC. After a long day of sightseeing we enjoyed the peaceful sights of the neighborhood and the beautiful homes. We had a lovely time during our stay there and would come back.. we have already recommended it to our friends and family!
