Older home, good location for NYC commute

  • 3 of 5

Three friends and their husbands met for our 50th high school reunion. The wasn't exactly what we expected, but worked for our stay. We were able to commute with ease into NYC for tours and shows. The walk to the station is doable, but a bit intimidating in the dark. The house itself is rambling, but the second bedroom has no closet and only the window with an air conditioner in it. The third bedroom has bunk beds, which we missed when booking, but made work. The sleep sofa in the living room and the futon in the backroom weren't great options for these senior citizens. We got a charge out of the eclectic utensils and cookware. But we were able to make it work and enjoyed our "home" for the 5 night we were there.

Location was awesome!

  • 4 of 5

The location of this home in Rahway was ideal for our annual rollerskating weekend. Sandy and Aundre, the property owners were great...very responsive to our inquiries and requests. We will most likely rent this property again next year.

Nice property for a family with children

  • 4 of 5

I pretty much agree with the other reviews. The house is older, but nice.

It is set up to accommodate families with children more so than many adults. Needless to say there is plenty of sleeping space. The 2 1/2 bath was a plus. Though we imagined we'd run into a broken shower issue, it was not. With the immediate response from the owner, we had everything working as it should. I cannot say enough about how the owners were professional, helpful, and went that extra mile to help make our stay enjoyable. Not to forget, when we arrived, there was a nice barbecue grill set up outside with charcoals and a nice sitting table ready for use.

Thanks Aundre and Sandy for a great stay.

Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location. This place is close to everything and is the ideal base to explore NYC and shop in NJ at all the warehouse sales! The driveway parking was an added bonus as we did not have to park on the street. The inside is neat with plenty of fresh linens and the basics. The owner left us a case of water bottles - half on the counter and half inside the refrigerator - very thoughtful, it's those little things that count. The bedrooms are comfortable and the bathrooms clean. This is an older house so it does come with its own little quirks - don't expect hotel rooms perfection.

Good place to stay if you're looking for vacation

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious & able to accommodate a lot of people, the couches and beds are comfortable & tidy. The TV is a bit old & the showers were leaky but over a very pleasant stay. They have WiFi available if needed.
