Great apartment just out of New York

  • 5 of 5

There were many positives about this place.

Ruth organising a wonderful person ( Manny) to collect us and take us to and from the airport.

Ruth greeting us and gave us lots of information.

We required washing to be done and Ruth helped us with that.

The apartment was spacious and cosy. Very comfortable beds.

Only 10 minute walk to lookout to see skyline of Manhattan. Enjoyed this view at night.

Would recommend the apartment to family or friends.

Thanks Ruth

Spacious Accomodation, but unable to Recommend

  • 2 of 5

The Accommodation was ok, however, we did incur a few issues:.

1. On the day when arriving at JFK we booked the taxi (Ruth's driver) and did not receive any confirmation after 4 hours of using a UK phone to contact Ruth and speaking to Ruth we were told the driver was involved in an accident however Ruth's husband stated the driver was already at the airport, (contradicting information) and we were left stranded for 4 hours at the airport with my child and elderly father with no where to sit down except on the airport floor. We also incurred additional costs on three of our UK mobiles for Roaming charges. Ruth eventually sent a taxi.

2. Arriving at the accommodation Ruth was not present throughout the whole of the 5 days. very disappointing as all the previous reviews stated Ruth was personally there to support if required.

3. Advertised but not provided Telephone - not helped as we had to buy a US sim card to use (purchased on the 3rd day of the stay)

4. Advertised but not provided Washing Machine - laundrette was around 10 minutes away from the accommodation

5. There was a small nail on the floor at the front of the bottom bedroom, posing a health and safety issue with an elderly person and my child accompanying for the stay.

6. The Light and fan in one of the bedrooms upstairs was not working

7. I only booked as Ruth advised the accommodation was suitable for an elderly person, however due to the two flights of steps and the location of the public transport (up and down a hill) the accommodation was by no means suitable for an elderly person or for transporting luggage up and down the stairs.

8. The advantages of the accommodation include being a safe neighbourhood as well as the spacious accommodation.

Unfortunately, due to more cons then pro it will be recommended to stay central rather than in New Jersey as the 20 minute transport is dependable reliability of the service and the traffic.

Great place and close to NYC

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay at for our little vacation to NYC. It was clean, quiet, and had everything we needed. Ruth left great instructions on how to use the public transit and nearby restaurants.

The property was beautiful, roomy, and very clean. We felt very much at home were very pleased.

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay! Not only was the property beautiful, spacious, and very clean, but Ruth and Henry were very helpful and friendly. They provided us with complete details of transportation into New York City. Both Ruth and Henry came on the day we checked in to make sure everything met our expectations and to answer any questions. They made sight seeing and dining recommendations and Henry drove us around the neighborhood to show us where to pick up the bus to the city as well as where grocery stores and other shopping was. They were so helpful accommodating and kind. We had a wonderful stay and a big part of that was because of the beautiful accommodations and the helpfulness of Ruth and Henry. I will be recommending Home Away to all of my friends looking for homes to stay in on trips and will most definitely be recommending Ruth to anybody I know that will be traveling to the New York or New Jersey area. Thank you for everything Ruth and Henry!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was great. Ruth gave us so much info on getting back & forth to New York City, arranged our transportation to & from the airport ,which eliminated a lot of stress! Location was close to bus & train and small grocery stores that met our needs. The apartment was very clean and comfortable for 6 adults. We would definitely stay here again!

Perfect Bachelorette Weekend House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing! For 9 girls to get away for a bachelorette weekend, we could not have asked for a better place to stay. Uber rides were about 15 mins to get into the city, so it was an easy locale to get to and from NYC. The home has 3 true bedrooms, with a king, 2 queens, 2 singles and 2 additional mattresses to use and two pull-out couches. 2 full bathrooms and a half bath made is so nice for 9 girls getting ready at the same time! We slept very comfortably and the mattresses were temperpedic - soooooo relaxing! The kitchen has everything you need from cutting boards, to coffee maker, toaster, microwave, oven, stove, deep sink, pots and pans, plenty of dishes AND a dishwasher. We had a great trip and I would rent again in a heart beat!

Ruth was fantastic, and only a quick text away if we needed anything, but we didn't because the house had everything :)
