Walk-in apartment in a landmark house within walking distance from Staten Island Ferry. Shops and a bus stop next doors.

Take the Staten Island Ferry, which runs 24-7 from the southern tip of Manhattan. Walk along the embankment with a view of the Statue of Liberty, or ride the bus a few minutes straight to our door in the St. George historic district. Step into a Victorian home surrounded by tall trees.

Mount a winding staircase and find yourself in the world of the past, under the tall ceilings, with light from many windows. Enjoy the comfort of three spacious bedrooms and a wide-open living-dining room with a high brick chimney.

Sample the Chinese and Latino takeout steps away if you are on foot. Wander 100 yards away to St. Peter's church, the oldest on Staten Island. Discover the pleasures of our unique 'forgotten borough,' but with Manhattan just a 25-minute sail away.

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. It's a beautiful victorian house. Beautifully furnished, clean and well maintained. It has a driveway and a superette next door.

Its also pretty close to the Staten Island ferry.

All in all an excellent rental.

Thanks Nikolai!

Had an awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

Nikolay was very accommodating. The property was close to stores, food, and where u catch the ferry into NYC. It was warm and inviting. Everything we needed was there. The property was a good size. Yes, it was plenty warm. We took DVD movies to watch. The internet was excellent. I would come back and stay again.

The people at the store next door were very friendly and nice too. We had a very enjoyable New Year's Eve trip.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this great location. As described, a 15 minute walk will get you to the ferry and to all that NYC has to offer. We hope to come back soon.

Bit disappointed at first but it grew on us...

  • 2 of 5

Honestly, when we first walked in, I was disappointed by the property. The pictures online made it seem much more charming than what it is. We love historic homes and have owned a Victorian before, so that's what drew us to rent the property in the first place. However, there is still much work to be done on this house. While the amount of space was great with two teenagers and we appreciated having a kitchenette, I'd like to offer a few suggestions to make it better for travelers. The owner seems very kind, so this is not to criticize, only to help, since I think the property has much potential.

1. There are no mugs, glasses or silverware provided. There was a pan, which made no sense since there was no stove (?). Those items should be standard in a place with a kitchenette since people do not travel with them. Luckily, my daughter had bought a mug in the city, so I had something to drink out of and I had a few plastic knives on me for making sandwiches. I did find one sharp knife in the picnic basket, too, but that was it!

2. The property did not seem clean and even smelled a bit dirty. Redoing the floors and stripping the wallpaper with a fresh coat of paint would definitely help brighten it up and make it seem cleaner and more welcoming. Also, there were mouse droppings in the kitchen cabinet-please watch for that when cleaning for the next tenant.

3. No TV was definitely a negative. After a long day in the city, there's nothing better than putting your feet up and watching TV to relax. Luckily, we brought laptops and were able to use the wifi (which was great, by the way) to watch movies, but was still surprised by the lack of a TV.

4. Ceiling fans, especially with the high ceilings, rather than random plug in fans which take up outlet and counter space.

On the plus side, there were plenty of towels and linens and the table and chairs were a nice addition. The bathroom is updated and clean and I appreciated the easy entry with the code on the door. I also liked the unique neighborhood and the walk to the ferry was easy (about 15-20 min). I don't think I would rent the property again, but I do think it has potential to be a really cool and unique place to stay after some work.

Owner's Response: Please have a look the dishwasher for mugs and silver. Kitchennette has microwave, toaster, coffee maker and kettle. I just received an electrick cooking top and going to install it next vacant day. I have a flat screen with DVD player and best Wi-Fi. If you missing something like a mug or linen you can always call me to get it almost immediately. Nikolay
