About Nadine

I'm a native New Yorker from Manhattan and a six year resident of New Jersey. I wish I'd discovered this area years ago. We have the best of both worlds-- quiet suburban living with the city just 20 minutes away.

I've worked in the hospitality industry for over 20 years and enjoy meeting new people. HomeAway provides me with an unending stream of wonderful families from all over the world to host.

Nadine purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Nadine chose Gateway Region

This property offers a quiet, homey ambiance after a day of sightseeing in the city. Relax in the small garden or walk along the promenade for fabulous views of the city.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is spacious, bright and uncluttered. Provides lots of room for socializing with your family and friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our experience was amazing from beginning to end. Nadine was so welcoming and we felt like we were at home. The place was beautiful, even better than shown in the pictures, so clean and organized, above all very cozy. It was a family trip for us so we were 7 adults and a baby and it was so perfect, we were very comfortable. The location couldn't be better, just a block away from the river and with an amazing view of New York's skyline. Transportation to and from Manhattan was steps away, for just $3 in less than 20 minutes you were in Manhattan, buses run 24/7. The area is quite nice and clean, there are lots of nice restaurants and access to everything. I really recommend Nadine's place. We will definitely come back! Thanks Nadine for such great hospitality!

Best Vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was wonderful, five stars for the accommodations and five stars for the hostess! Nadine was super friendly and bent over backwards to make sure that we had everything we needed. Our family had a wonderful time and we will definitely stay here again the next time we come to New York!

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Nadine's for 10 nights and from the moment she greeted us and showed us the apartment we felt right at home!

Everything you could need in the apartment - fully equipped kitchen (not that we had time to cook), extremely comfortable beds with TV's in each bedroom. I really cant do anything but praise this apartment and Nadine the owner! It was extremely clean, I don't believe the photos online do the property justice!

The location of the property is just fantastic! A very short walk to some small shops to get supplies. A short Uber drive to Wallmart ($7). Buses run a few steps from the front door every 10 minutes or so that drop you at the Port Authority - this takes approximately 20 minutes - and then from there its a short walk or subway ride to where you need to go. I would suggest that you pay for a weekly unlimited subway pass I think it was $30, so much cheaper then continually topping up your metro card if you are there for a period of time.

Nadine is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. She was so helpful and provided us with everything we needed to know and more. I will certainly be contacting Nadine when I plan my next trip - this place is now my NY home base!

Thank you Nadine from the Wright's for making our stay so great and for all your help!

Kind Regards

Paul Wright

Great location, awesome owner, overall great experience

  • 5 of 5

This upstairs apartment is great for a couple of small family who is looking to enjoy a trip to New York without having to deal with the city the entire trip. There is plenty of places to eat around the home as well as small markets within walking distance. The area is safe and has amazing views of the skyline with a short walk. The apartment is located and a bus route, someone not from a big city may think it is loud... but the owner provides ear plugs for those who need them. Getting into the city by car took about 30 minutes and was an easy drive. I would definitely stay here again when visiting New York or the surrounding area. Thanks Nadine for such an enjoyable stay!

Good accommodation close to manhattan

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here in October/November for a week using both apartments for a family of 8 adults and a child. The accommodation was very comfortable , the transport to the Manhattan was great. The only concerns we had was the bedroom facing the road was very busy with traffic until early hours in the morning so the noise was a challenge to get to sleep. The host was very helpful and pleasant.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

The property was a great choice. My family and I thought it felt like home away from home. It was very neat, clean and warm. Meeting and talking with Nadine, the owner was like speaking with an old friend. She was very kind and pleasant. The location was very convenient. As we were steps away from the bus stop. We would most definitely stay there again. A very pleasant experience.

Really nice homey spot

  • 5 of 5

We love Nadine and her little bit oriental designed home! It has a well equipted kitchen, 3 bedrooms with AC, and a functionaliteit bathroom.

The transport to NYC takes often more time than the 20 minutes the buscompanies say.

We loved the views (skyline NY) during evening walks in North Bergen.
