About the property

Great for families and small groups. Near public transportation and easy parking

Historic neighborhood where many African-American jazz greats started. You have easy access to NYC via car, train, cab, or uber . We are located 5 minutes from Newark Airport, a golf course, historic park and one of the largest outlet malls in NJ. Your guest house has 2 bedrooms, kitchen and convenient parking. Best part of this beautiful historic section is you have easy access to NYC via car, or train. The place is built in the 1940's, with antique like touches. Love to host you my friend.

You will have 700 sq ft all to yourself. There is such great detail to this 1940's space and many of the historic details have been kept. Two blocks away you will find he historical Weequehic Park that offers jogging with a 2.3 mile track around a lake, tennis courts, playground for kids, racket ball and the oldest public golf course in America.

This is the easiest city to get around! It is 350 years old and as a result it has one of the most effective bus and train systems around. We have several major roads near by. Newark Penn Station can get you anywhere on the east coast you want to visit. Honestly, if you are going to hangout in NYC, we are closer to Manhattan than most parts of Brooklyn and Queens.You will also be able to enjoy the space all to yourself. Two blocks away you will find he historical Weequehic Park that offers jogging with a 2.3 mile track around a lake, tennis courts, playground for kids, racket ball and golf --yes, only two blocks away.

Why Tina chose Weequahic

My location will be the perfect space for you and yours. You have a totally separate two bedroom home. The house is cozy, warm and relaxing. The neighborhood is beautiful and you have one of the oldest parks designed by the Olmstead brothers who are the same designers that designed Central Park. Two blocks away you will find he historical Weequehic Park that offers jogging with a 2.3 mile track around a lake, tennis courts, playground for kids, racket ball and the oldest public golf course in America. It is absolutely gorgeous.

The place is spacious and very comfortable. -Tina

Quiet and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Even though this remtal is 5 minutes from the airport, we only heard a couple planes go by in a full week. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. Tina is incredibly responsive and helpful. The place is quite large, and a great deal compared with NYC hotel options... especially given we needed a place to park the car.

Great Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a fantastic stay at this property. The area was very safe to live at, with a lovely park very close by for relaxation or to exercise, or go for a jog.

The property was very spacious, tidy and homely. We felt at home and would come back again and again.

The landlady was also an extremely lovely person and she made sure we were very comfortable.

Very friendly hostess but the apartment need a renovation

  • 3 of 5

We spent our holidays at Tina's apartment during christmas time. We wanted to have a great time with our 4years old son like at home in this apartement.

But we decided to leave earlier because it's not so wonderful as it seems like.

The furniture are OK and the beds are comfortable but the kitchen is not acceptable. The closet were not clean the cooking area was dirty, there were no cutlery and only a few plates. The dishes were realy not clean and we only used plastic one. The spices and coffee are probably already in the closet for a long time and we didn't want to use them.

The way to Manhattan is also not so easy. We took uber and needed over 1hour (depending on the day) to NYC.

We didn't use the subway because of we were not sure how safe the area realy is.

We were so sorry about because of Tina was very friendly and she leave us a little present for Christmas.

We spent the rest of our holidays in NYC and for us it was the best decision we could make.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying with us. I know you were looking for something right in midtown, but my place is less than 13 miles and to get a two bedroom home for my rate is a steal. The house is listed as a cottage house, as it is in a historical neighborhood, and many people love the more cozy feel. The feedback was helpful and we made all the changes, as we bought new plates and have threw out all the spices. The place is a two bedroom private home less that 13 miles from the city, so it is closer than many places in New York. To other guests, please read the other reviews too. We are in a great neighborhood, with private parking, a large outlet mall near by and we have been in business for years with hundreds of guests. Love to host you and yours soon. -Tina
