Beautiful home, wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during NYFW. The home is so charming, and so close to everything. We took some vintage fashion photos in the home and it was the perfect setting. Ruth was a lovely host and was so easy to work with when there were multiple delays and changes due to the large amount of snowfall that came the day of our arrival. We would definitely love to stay here again for future trips to the NJ/NY area!

An experience to cherish forever!

  • 5 of 5

We came for my wife's birthday, which happened to be on Thanksgiving Day to see the Macy's Day Parade. A big bucket list item. From the day we started discussing the idea of renting Ruth and Henry's home for the week, Ruth was extraordinarily helpful and accommodating.

The house brought all of us back to our childhood days. Big old house, tons of room to spread out, gorgeous woodwork like the old days with modern amenities. The neighborhood is simply awesome. After all the trips into New York for the Parade, Time Square, Broadway, Empire State Building, The Tonight Show, 911 Memorial, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty... on and on and on, we would still wake up early, walk around the area, try a different deli or grocery and meet people. The people were so much fun. Met an elderly couple that spent the better part of a morning showing us around. An old church, a convent, an old newspaper printing company. And Harold! OMG this guy was a riot. He was a sanitation supervisor who stopped at a deli for breakfast. "Yoos come all de way from Caleefoyneeaaa to see New Joysee. Are yoos frigin cwazy!" The guy had us in stitches. Oh and he loved our accents. haaaa

Henry picked us up from the airport and Manny took us back to the airport. Two wonderful people. After five minutes you felt like you were part of the family.

I would definitely recommend this place if you have any intentions of visiting New Jersey or New York. As a matter of fact I already have. They are planning the same trip we took for next year and will be contacting Ruth soon.

Stop looking, you've found the perfect place for a family vacation to remember.

Lovely & comfortable stay at Union City Mansions

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house, which was comfortable for our party of 13. Plenty of space & the games room was a hit with the kids & adults! Really nice features & the location was perfect for us to get to & from Manhattan. Ruth, Henry & Manny are lovely people who were very helpful & accommodating. They arranged our transfers to & from the airport which were quick, easy & comfortable & gave us so much helpful advice & tips. There was plenty of information that helped during our stay & we'd definitely recommend or stay there again. Had a great time & the house felt like home after our busy days out in Manhattan.

Beautiful home! Amazing location. Owners wonderful people.

  • 5 of 5

This was by far one of the best experiences of our trip. The home is beautiful and very clean. The beds offer the best nights sleep you will ever have. Just minutes away from historic Hoboken NJ and only 3 to 4 miles from NY city. Owners are very kind and very helpful with any need or want and were accessible any time of day or night. Neighborhood was very nice and safe and close to any need you may have from groceries to gas or shopping. Several options for transportation right there at home. Our kids would have been happy just staying there at the house as there was plenty of fun and entertainment with pool table, movies, and eateries at your fingertips. We had 7 guests on our trip but could have easily had twice that with plenty of room. It was equipped with essentials for travel (towels, toiletries like shampoo/conditioner and even bodywash, plenty of towels, blankets, pillows, and extra bedding) that make it so convenient and cost saving. There is everything you need to cook with and even host a formal dining event if you need to. I can't speak highly enough about this property and its owners. I would highly recommend it. It is well worth the price and would happily stay there again! The decor is just awe inspiring and with three full bathrooms we had NO problems getting 7 People dressed and ready to spend the day in the city. Thank you Mrs Ruth for an amazing experience!
