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.

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 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.

Nice property

  • 5 of 5

Property was as described in listing. It was located in a nice neighborhood. Very spacious. Only one item that could use improving was the bed on the first floor. It may be fine for a child but a little uncomfortable for adults.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and feedback. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the spaciousness of the apartment and the neighborhood. Thanks for the feedback of the mattress on the first floor. We have now replaced that mattress with an orthopedic mattress which I'm sure will be more comfortable for future guests. Thanks again for your feedback. Much appreciated. Have a blessed day.

Clean, cozy, quiet with easy access to NYC

  • 4 of 5

My Wife and 3 adult kids were in need of a place to stay for my mother's 70th Birthday weekend celebration in New York City. My arrival time to the apartment was much later in the night than anticipated, yet the owner Denise was very acomidating and met us at the property with keys on hand and a tour of the cozy apartment. The two bedrooms were well furnished with big screen TVs and wifi. 4 stars bc the bed downstairs was not as comfortable as expected but it was ok. (may need a new mattress). Located in a nice quiet neighborhood just minutes from the city. Despite heavy traffic at the George Washington Bridge, we were still able to drive into New York City within 20 minutes from the apartment. Would definetly stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review. Happy to hear that you appreciated how close the apartment was to the city, as well as the apartment itself. Sorry to hear that you found one of the mattresses not as comfortable as you expected. First time hearing this but I will be sure to take a look at that mattress nonetheless to see if it needs to be replaced for future guests. I always want my guests to be as comfortable as possible while they stay at their home away from home so thank you for bringing this to my attention. Accommodating the late check in and doing the tour with you and your wife was my pleasure and no bother at all. Glad that you appreciated the neighborhood as it is a wonderful town. The large TVs are always a big hit with guests so glad that you enjoyed this as well. Thank you for choosing my vacation rental and for treating it with care. It was a pleasure to host you and your family. Have a great weekend.

Excellent host

  • 5 of 5

We are extremely happy with our stay in this beautiful cozy apartment. Denise was really helpful from the start, she was really flexible with our stay & even gave us a list of things to do in the city, how to get there, stores and restaurants that were close by and popular places to visit. I would definitely stay here again.

It was so great to be at your apartment for the past few days. It is a clean, comfortable place. The houses and streets around your house are beautiful too. You are a great host. Thank you for all your advises. Thank you for caring for us. We were all so comfortable at your place. See you next time. We'll definitely choose to be at your place again!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. I love to hear when my guests find the apartment cozy and appreciate how clean and comfortable it is. Creating the list of nearby popular places is just my way of trying to help my guests settle in as best as possible during their stay at their home away from home. It warms me to hear that you appreciated this. It was my pleasure to help your family with planning your tourist attractions and transportation logistics. I hope you enjoyed them all. Thank you for leaving the apartment so clean and for treating it with such care. You were an absolute delight to host and I would definitely welcome you and your family anytime! Have a great holiday weekend.
