The house was comfortable & well decorated. Carmen was available for questions prior to the trip.
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. The separate apartments gave us all space & the large gathering area gave us a chance to be together to visit, talk & eat. Kitchens were were well stocked for cooking. Transportation was easy - we walked to the ferry but sometimes took a taxi instead. The bus also stops near the house. Carmen gave us a tour of the house when we checked in & gave us helpful info. She also had the ferry & bus schedules up on a cork board with other area info. It was all in all a great stay & a great vacation.
It was a pleasure having you and your guests Linda. I could not have ask for better considering my home was left in a excellent manner. I would highly recommend you to any other host.
Again thank you for coming.
Property was just as pictured.
This was a lovely home to stay in with a very large group. The owner was super helpful and accommodating. We had some delays and arrived past midnight, but Carmen was more than willing to work with or group. Keep in mind that although this is one house with 4 floors, they have separate entrances for the bottom 2 floors and the top 2 floors. This was not a problem for our group just helpful if planning sleeping accommodations. The location was great, very close to the ferry and the bus stop is just a couple doors down. Amazon fresh will deliver groceries to the front porch which made things especially easy for our school group. With our group arriving late Carmen even went the extra mile and brought in the groceries we had delivered to the house before we arrived. It was great having all the shampoos, conditioners, soaps, linens provided. It was also nice to have furniture to sit use on each level, it often gets old having nothing to sit on except a bed for the week. Overall we could not have been more pleased with these accommodations. We would love to stay here again in the future when we return for school trips!
Room For All!
Stayed at this large Staten Island property for the TD Five Boro Bike Ride. Carmen is an absolute delight to work with and takes great pride in her home. The home consist of four separate apartments with room to spread out and have your own space and quiet time. Everything you need to enjoy your stay is provided from tons of bath towels to luxurious comfortable beds and linens. A short walk to the free Staten Island Ferry or a short $7 cabride. A definite consideration if your taking a large group to NYC.
Excellent host and property
The property description was 100% accurate and suited the needs of our big group very well. It was very clean and provided everything we needed for our stay. All the beds are proper beds and very comfortable. Carmen was an excellent host and couldn't do enough to make our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. She was on hand to answer any queries and went out of her way to provide everything we needed. It was a great place to be based to visit the sites of New York and within walking distance of the Staten Island ferry (about 10 mins walk - although up hill on return to house - there is a bus that stops right outside the house too if you don't fancy the walk!) Overall this is an excellent place to stay with an excellent host and i would have no hesitation in recommending it to family and friends.
Room enough for all
This home was perfect for our group of 12. Carmen was easy to work with, very helpful and a great resource to answer our travel questions. Easy access to the ferry via bus or a quick walk made New York City easy to get to. The rooms and beds were very comfortable and the home was clean and inviting. The neighborhood was quiet and we felt very safe. Highly recommend this property and would love to visit again.
Our Home Away From Home
I found this Staten Island gem of a guesthouse. It can fit 25 people! The pictures of the rooms were beautiful but I was skeptical. All accommodations have decent pictures as well but the reality always falls short of the pictures. Not so with Carmen's guesthouse. There is a reason why she calls it STUNNING because indeed it is.
Carmen's STUNNING guesthouse is close to St. George Terminal (Staten Island Ferry). It is a 17 minute walk but I would not recommend to walk there from the terminal, especially with luggage, since there is a steep hill. It is an easy, and pleasant 17 minute walk from the guesthouse to the terminal. There is a well stocked convenience store 2 doors down where I bought fresh bagels and other food items and a very good Chinese take-out which delivers about a 3 minute walk away. So the location was great.
The house itself has 4 levels. Each level is designed to be it's own apartment with 2 bedrooms which can fit 2-4 people in each bedroom, a living area, a kitchen, and a full bathroom. There are 2 front entrances. The door to the left goes to the 1st floor and the basement, the door to the right has stairs to go up to the 2nd and 3rd floor apartments. Each bedroom is tastefully decorated and has very comfortable beds enough for a total of 25 people. There were 26 of us so I slept very soundly on 1 of 4 sofas. As you can imagine, with all this furniture, there wouldn't be much floor space. I just told my students to place their luggage under the bed or inside the closet. Each kitchen is FULLY EQUIPPED with everything you need to cook a gourmet meal! Each of the 4 apartments have a sofa, dining table, and a TV.
But the best reason to book this guesthouse is the host. Carmen is a gift! From the moment she makes her first contact with you upon making the reservation, she welcomes you to her home with open arms. She answered all my questions regarding the guesthouse, regarding public transport, regarding stores and places to eat. She even offered to pick me up from the terminal! Once I actually met her, she proved to be a delight. Her kindness and hospitality overwhelmed me. As it turned out, she drove me to the terminal twice while I let the students walk. They are young, I'm old.
With Carmen and her guesthouse, we have found our home in New York City. I highly recommend Carmen and her guesthouse. You can't go wrong.
It was a pleasure having you and your group of students. The home was left in great condition considering it was a large group.
Absolutely, yes I would welcome Jose again with open arms in my home and highly recommend him to any other host.
Thanks again for coming.
