About the property

New York elegance at New Jersey prices!

Our garden level suite offers modern amenities in a quaint setting. Set on a quiet street, you will feel the luxury of Manhattan but with the calm of a small town. It is located across the street from a beautiful park that is a great place to rest after a full day of sightseeing.

The floors are covered by terra cotta tiles and the exposed brick work offer urban chic with rustic flair giving an ambience of both comfort and familiarity. The ceilings are low (6'4") which adds to the coziness of the space.

There is one bedroom with a full-size bed that sleeps two and a day lounger in the living room that sleeps one.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas stove, fridge and plenty of pots and pans for cooking.

Feel free to enjoy the garden. Your sanctuary has a private entrance at the back of the house with a lovely cobblestone patio where you can take your meals.

We live upstairs and will be happy to assist you with any special requests you may have!

Great time in the city!

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I traveled to NYC for a week for her birthday. We rented Ursula and Carlos's place. It was just what we needed. It was clean and cozy. It was in a great location. Just minutes from the city. Ursula left us bus tickets for the first day so we could get into NYC with no problem. She had everything we needed, including tourist maps on hand. Overall the stay was great. I will stay here again if ever traveling to NYC.

excellent apartment, host, and neighborhood/location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 12 nights. Apartment is clean, comfortable and well furnished...everything you need for long term stay. Excellent bed, linens kitchen etc. Hosts Ursula and Carlos are first rate people (friendly, sharp and well-traveled) and attend to all details and any needs you may have. Beyond what might be expected.

Location is excellent...five minute walk to bus stop for a 15 minute ride to Manhattan (Port Authority bus terminal.) Neighborhood is clean and safe, pleasant walking. Short bus ride to newly gentrified Hoboken (preserved 1900's era downtown) and ferries to Manhattan.

Hope to stay again soon.

N. J. basement apartment close to Manhattan

  • 2 of 5

The best thing about the apartment is it's proximity to midtown Manhattan. Although I rented the unit for two full weeks, I only slept there 3 nights. Couldn't get comfortable with the ground-in dirt in the bathroom & kitchen. Though this was mentioned to the owners, there was no attempt at remedying the situation.

Owner's Response: Dear Rocio, This review comes as a surprise for us. Since we respect the privacy of our guests, we had no idea that you had spent so little time in the apartment . We work very hard to satisfy the needs of our guests and it is regrettable that you feel we were not able to fulfill you expectations. Ursula and Carlos

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

Ursula is absolutely amazing. She went above and beyond and made sure you did not have to worry about anything. She was always available if you had any questions. This place is only 15 min away from the Times Square. The bus stop is only a few blocks away. It was very convenient. I would definitely stay there again.

Don't think twice - this is the place to book

  • 5 of 5

I booked this place sending my teenage daughter to NY with her 2 girl cousins (not much older) as a graduation gift. Of course as a parent, I was worried whether I am booking the right and safe place for them. I have to say, I chose correctly trusting Ursula. Her basement was the best fit for them 3. They couldn't say enough nice things about their host and how Ursula was very nice and sweet. They felt at home and very comfortable. It is a perfect place for them 3 since they are all petite and short. Make sure to check the description that their ceilings are low being in the basement. It sure did add to the coziness of the place though. They said it was clean and they were even welcomed with some snacks for their first day after arriving from a long day of travel from Denver with a layover. Beds were comfortable. A little snug in the shower but it was very clean. The kitchen was well equipped. Bus stop is conveniently located. It is about a 15 minute bus ride but waiting for the bus from the bus terminal (Manhattan side) could be a little long at times (depending on time of day). Street was very well lit at night since they got home from Manhattan late at night every night. Just a perfect place for a perfect price. Thank you Ursula! I knew I made the right decision when I booked your place.
