Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. We were able to arrange a ride through Ruth from Manny (who was awesome) from the airport. The hosts had a notebook full of helpful information- bus schedules, tips to take them, local stores, etc. We would definitely stay here again.

This place is perefect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our trip to NYC. It was perfect. Very quiet and safe. So easy to get to the city. Ruth and Henry are very accomadating. Even the neighbor that lives in the house was so nice! I didn't catch hos name but we had just missed the bus into the city and instead of us waiting forever for the next one, he drove us to a stop closer to the city so we could catch the bus when it passed by. I will definitely stay here again. Thank you Ruth and Henry!

The best vacation ever!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We didn't actually end up staying at this particular location as we wanted to extend our trip so Ruth(owner) was more than happy to accommodate us and put us up in a different place right down the street which was the FOXY UNDERGROUND APARTMENT. Not even sure where to begin about our amazing experience! It started out with her son Alex picking us up from the airport. They were more than happy to accommodate making pickup Arrangements and I would highly suggest doing this! I'm not even sure how we would have navigated ourselves. They made it so easy for us. Upon dropping us off at the apartment Ruth was there waiting for us to go over all of the instructions and gave us many tips about the city. She also took the time to explain thoroughly the bus schedules and also the ferry schedule. This was so helpful and again not sure how we would have figured this all out on our own. The apartment was absolutely perfect for our family of four. There was plenty of room for all of us and a very comfortable clean apartment. We especially loved the back patio, we would sit out there every morning to have our coffee. The apartment was equipped with everything you need to be able to cook meals on your own and there is a grocery store literally right across the street which was extremely convenient. We felt so safe in the neighborhood with plenty of places to eat and Hoboken is a short walk away which I would highly recommend visiting. Traveling into New York City was a breeze . The bus stop is right around the corner from this apartment and they drop you off right in the middle of Times Square and typically only takes about 10 to 15 minutes. We were so glad that we decided to stay at this apartment versus staying in the city . It was so nice to come home to a quiet place every night . Ruth also was available 24/7 for any questions that we had which was great. On our departure her driver Manny picked us up and took us to the airport which again was so convenient and we absolutely loved him! This is the best experience I've ever had through VRBO because of Ruth. She made everything so effortless and we are so grateful for her and her family. We absolutely fell in love with all of them! Don't hesitate to stay here if I could give her more than five stars I would! Thank you again Ruth for a memorable amazing experience we can't wait to come back. Sending all of our love from Wisconsin ❤

Great stay with great hosts

  • 5 of 5

Henry and Ruth are amazing hosts. We arrived late after a flight delay and was able to still talk to Ruth when we arrived. Henry came to check on us the next morning and gave us a ride to take the bus into the city.

The place is very quaint and comfortable not far from the city via public transportation. We will definitely stay at another one of their properties when in the area. Thanks for everything!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Ruth's home has everything you need for a pleasant stay at a great value. The only problem we had was that the beds were too comfortable, making it hard too get out of in order to explore New York City!! The home is clean, cosy, in a great location. I really enjoyed Ruth's neighbourhood. Bergenline has all sorts reasonably priced and yummy Latin restaurants - Cuban, Mexican, and Peruvian. It was fairly easy to get to Time Square by taking New Jersey transit. I fully recommend Ruth's place as a home away from home.
