Overview

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!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Ursula was amazing! She made us feel right at home. The home was super cozy and close to the bus route. A quick 20 min ride into NYC and you are right at Times Square!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome! Perfect place if you want your nights away from the hustle and bustle! Ursula went above and beyond for us: letting us park in the driveway, took us to a local park with amazing views of the NYC skyline and she took us to the NJ ferry for the Statue of Liberty tour, this saved us a lot of time! She is the queen of hospitality and made our trip to NYC great!

Transit to the city was smooth! One evening, the time from boarding the bus to entering the apartment--a little less than 15 mins. You literally can't find a better location!

Safe! We are from a small and dare I say sheltered locale and we felt VERY safe!

You won't be disappointed in choosing this rental!

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin! Even before arriving, Ursula sent detailed information on the area, how to get to the property, and made herself available to answer any questions. Once we arrived, it was no different treatment. Her main focus is to ensure her guests are happy and comfortable. She texted and called to make sure we made it to the right bus and even met us at the bus stop that is very close to the property. We walked back to the apartment (yes, the bus stops are that close) where we were greeted with a greeting card, welcoming snacks, beverages, and breakfast staples to get our vacation started. Booklets, pamphlets, and many nearby food options were available as well. Very minor requests we made were addressed immediately. Though Ursula and her family live above the apartment, they were so quiet you'd never know anyone was above you. This stay was hospitality at its finest. Thank you Ursula and Carlos for making our trip so comfortable and enjoyable!! We HIGHLY recommend this property. No need to stay in the expensive city, when you can stay here and just be a short bus ride away. Our next visit to NYC will definitely include staying at Ursula and Carlos' place!

Excellent all the way in every way possible this rental is worth it !

  • 5 of 5

Ursula and Carlos were extremely hopefully and super nice people really made it that much better to have such good people rent us their home. The house itself is I would say perfect . It has everything one needs and has in their home. This place was definitely worth the money and more, can't explain how grateful and nice this house was, hope to rent from Ursula and Carlos again !

  • 5 of 5

Welcoming, we arrived to a light on, music playing and snacks after a long day of travel. Home was exactly as described.

Hosts professional, all correspondence replies in short period of time, assisted with any questions about the area: transportation, restaurants etc. Outstanding attention to detail, clean, well maintained, safe neighborhood, fast easy commute to NYC-midtown. Thank you we had the best trip in big part due to this stay and top notch hospitality!

Far enough away from the city to be peaceful but close enough that travel was a breeze.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very cozy, clean, and comfortable. Ursula made us feel very welcome and gave us great info for the Macy's parade. It was a great experience for our first time in NY and will be staying there for future trips.
