About Denise Cruz

I am a professional in the research and medical field in NYC. I was born and raised in NYC and have been living in NJ since 2006. I started renting my home when my son went off to college. I enjoy trying new restaurants and traveling. I am a positive and fair person and enjoy hosting people from all over the world. I value customer service and fulfilling the needs of all my lovely guests.

Why Denise Cruz chose New Jersey

This property is located in a very lovely tree lined area of NJ just minutes away from NYC. I purchased this home in light of its proximity of its location to NYC and its multi-cultural community. The property is located just two blocks away from an express bus that goes express to Times Square in NYC. This property is perfect for families or larger groups who want to avoid paying for multiple hotel rooms and eating out daily which would make a family trip to NYC very expensive.

Great place to stay when visiting NJ and NYC!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed in this cute home when our family visited NYC. The space was perfect for our family of six and our dog. A few blocks from the bus line in a quiet neighborhood, it was really easy to commute straight to Port Authority just blocks from Time Square. Port Authority also has a subway in the basement to make transferring to other places easier. Now learning PA and Subway schedules is a bit tricky, but you get it down pretty well after the first day.

Denise is awesome with communication and is just a text away if you need anything. The house was clean and ready, just as described. Our kids especially loved the oversized bathtub where they could watch their cartoons right in the shower! So cool! The furniture was comfortable and the kitchen allowed us to make a few meals to save money.

We highly recommend a stay here and we will be back the next time we are planning a weekend trip to NYC!

Cute apartment

  • 5 of 5

It is a really cute apartment about 30 minutes from the city. We tried taking the bus one day, but it never came, which was not common according to the other people at the bus stop. Not a big deal, we just called a Lyft. Lyft/Ubers to and from the city are between $50-$80 each way. The owner and her son are very helpful and I was able to text them any questions I had and they helped out immediately. There are window air conditioners in each room. Like others have mentioned, there are a lot of narrow steps, so if you have any restrictions, it may be too much, but for us, it was a wonderful and quiet place to lay our heads at night.

Owner's Response: Thank you Angela for your 5 star review of the apartment. I'm very happy that you enjoyed your stay and we were able to help with all your needs. I'm sorry to hear that you tried the bus one day and it didn't come. It's usually right on schedule. We always recommend to use the bus schedule provided and to text the bus stop to get an autimatic accurate time of bus arrival. It makes planning travel much easier. If calling a cab, I would recommend Uber. They charge usually approximately $40 to the city depending on the time of day. I'm glad the steps leading to the apartment on the second floor were not really an issue for you. Thank you again for your great review. It was a pleasure to host you and your wonderful family.

Denise was a great host. When I arrived I felt like I was being greeted by an old friend. The apartment was spotless and cozy, truly felt like home. Denise, kept in contact with me throughout the stay making sure I had everything I needed. I will definitely be booking this apartment again.

Bumpy start

  • 3 of 5

I rented this apartment for family coming in for our daughter's wedding. I went over on the first day and was met by the owners 17 yr old son. She was away on vacation but reachable by phone.

A little bumpy start. We needed to use the air mattress, and they couldn't find it from last occupants. By that night we had a new air mattress. The beds were noisy with each movement. Just a suggestion you should have washcloths and hand towels not just bath towels.

The other problem is the circuit breaker in the basement. You couldn't use any two things in the apartment at one time without setting off the breaker. Owner should consider a separate circuit for that apartment only to eliminate always going to the basement to fix the breaker.

On the plus side the problems that arose were solved quickly and cheerfully. This apartment is in Bogota not Ridgefield Park.

I am unsure if I will use homeaway.com again.

Thank You, Occupants from August 17-25th 2016.

Owner's Response: Thank you for pointing out that your concerns were met immediately. First I would like to address each point raised by this guest. First point noted was that my 17 year old son greeted the guest while I was on vacation. Yes, I was on vacation which is very common for hosts. I requested that my son greet these guests for me as a courtesy. My son is not 17. He is in his mid twenties and a professional young man. In many cases hosts just provide lock boxes and do not greet their guests at all but I usually like to do so or have a family member do so if I'm not in town. It's very unfortunate that this was even raised. Second point, I was in contact with this guest immediately and throughout my vacation to confirm that all was up to their standards. This guest said yes and also made me aware that the air mattress was missing which was unfortunate as it was a brand new one just purchased. We immediately purchased another brand new one before the evening came. Issue raised and resolved immediately. The guest also requested additional washcloths. We also made these available on the first day. Issue raised and resolved immediately. As for the beds, I've never heard this complaint before since we have top quality mattresses and beds but I understand everyone has different opinions and thank the guest for their feedback. As for the circuit, there was one request to be careful putting too many high energy items at the same time (it was a heatwave in NYC) and this guest did not adhere to this request so the circuit had to be reset multiple times which is very uncommon for our stays thus far, but was not an issue for us at all since it's a matter of flicking a switch easily. I'm disappointed that a host can address a guest's concerns immediately as was mentioned in the review and they still not be satisfied but this is part of the hosting game. I look forward to continuing to offer beautiful and clean accommodations for my future guests.
