**** everyone staying at the apartment has to be included in the guest count, including children****

****** newly renovated apartment in a three family house. This apartment is in the basement, but it is only 50% underground as the kitchen is leveled out with the back yard and the bedroom’s windows facing the street are leveled out with the sidewalk as you can see it from the pictures ****** the exterior entrance is still not finished, but it is in the process of being done.

We are running an introductory rate of $175 per night up to 4 guests and $15 additionally per person per night after 4 guests, the apartment can accommodate up to 8 people, so if you want to stay in a nice apartment at a lower rate,this is the perfect apartment for you.

This foxy underground apartment is located in union city, new jersey which is less than 5 miles away from midtown manhattan / times square / port authority bus terminal. Union city is a hidden treasure on the other side of the lincoln tunnel and it is approximately a 20-25 minute bus ride from our location ( except during rush hours 7:00 am - 9:00 am and 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm). The bus stop is only 1 block away from the apartment and the fare is $3.20, but if you buy a minimum of 10 tickets at a time, it will cost you $2.70. The buses run every 20 minutes and the last bus leaving the port authority bus terminal to the apartment is at 1:15 am monday - friday , 1:45 am on saturday and 12:40 am on sunday. In addition, there are shuttle buses running 24 hours, but leave you 17 blocks away from the apartment in the event that you need to travel after 1:45 am. Another option is to take the PATH train from New York to Hoboken (these trains run 24 hours) then take UBER for about $7- $10 (depending on the number of people) to our apartment and it will take you approximately 10 minutes to get there.

We are closer to midtown manhattan than Brooklyn, the bronx and most parts of queens.

You can enjoy the best of both worlds by staying in this apartment as you can enjoy new york all day long and come back to this safe, green and quiet neighborhood which is also very accessible to hoboken, the official home of the famous Carlo's bakery of cake boss and birth place of frank Sinatra.. There are buses going to hoboken one block away from the apartment and they run every 20 minutes. Walking distance to supermarket, liquor store, groceries, bakeries, diner, shops, parks, etc.

If you will be driving, you will need to park on the street (I will provide you with a visitor’s pass so you won't get any parking violation) or I might be able to let you park your vehicle in one of our properties nearby (5 blocks away) provided that the other guests don’t bring any vehicles.

Check in time is at 4:00 pm and Check out time is at 11:00 am, but we are very flexible as long as we don’t have any guests checking in and checking out on your arrival and departure date. If we do, we can always hold your bags.

An early check in can only be confirmed 2 days before your arrival and a late check out can be confirmed the day before your departure.

CANCELLATION POLICY

In the event of a cancellation, there will be a 50% refund (from the entire reservation amount) up until 1 week prior to arrival and all cancellations should be done through VRBO/HOMEAWAY. However, if we manage to re-rent the place for ALL the nights you have canceled, we can offer you a bigger refund to you than our cancellation policy dictates. The earlier you cancel the more chances we will have to find other guest. This cancellation policy supersedes any other one showing on any listing by VRBO/HOMEWAY.

Why Ruth Garcia chose Union City

You can enjoy the best of both worlds by staying in this apartment as you can enjoy New york all day long and come back to this safe, green and quiet neighborhood which is also very accessible to Hoboken, the official home of the famous Carlo's Bakery of Cake Boss and birth place of Frank Sinatra.. There are buses going to Hoboken one block away from the apartment and they ru every 20 minutes. Walking distance to supermarket, liquor store, groceries, bakeries, diner, shops, parks, etc.

What makes this apartment unique

You are away from the city, but yet so close! You will be able to get in and out of Manhattan in a wink. It takes approx 15 minutes to be in the heart of Manhattan, so you can enjoy the city all day, but you will be able to come back to a quiet place. By staying in this house, you will be able to enjoy the best of both worlds. The quietness of this area will be much appreciated after being all day in the noisy streets in the city.

Excellent lodgings, excellent hostess

  • 5 of 5

Hostess is awesome for first-time travelers to NY because she gives you a rundown of the bus and subway systems. She also provides an optional pickup and drop off to the airport, which we took advantage of.

Nice apartment, absolutely wonderful hosts!

  • 3 of 5

The property is exactly as shown in the pictures. The supermarket across the street is fantastic and has a good selection. Ruth and Henry are wonderful people! We had two issues come up with the apartment while we were there, and both times they were available and sorted things out very quickly.

While the neighbourhood looks and feels a bit rundown, it always felt safe. I lost my wallet at the grocery store, and within half an hour had received a call from the police saying someone had found it and dropped it off at the station. Nothing was missing from it.

Downsides, such as they are:

The connections to New York are ok, though outside of rush hour the direct bus is only once an hour, so definitely plan for that if you like sleeping in in the morning.

The air-conditioner in the bedroom is noisy, so we just left it off.

Union City Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the Foxy Underground Apartment was perfect for our family of five! Located in Union City, it was only 15 minutes by bus to Times Square. All information Ruth and Henry provided for public transportation was accurate and helpful. Perfect place from the expense of Manhattan!

Great stay, great neighborhood, great homeowner... you will enjoy yourself, for sure!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, Ruth was an awesome host and very responsive. The responsive part is key to leanring how to stay in a new place. She made sure we understood the NJ Lincoln Tunnel bus & subway details, even the weekend / holiday hours of the ferry across the Hudson. Apartment was perfect for our small group. Everything neat & tidy. The apartment above our flat was little noisy, but again homeowner, Ruth responded and made things right. Great, easy to navigate neighborhood, very friendly. The parking situation is not as hard as it might seem. I think we made a great choice to stay in Union City, NJ.

Cute property with very accommodating hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 6 moms and daughters stay here.

It was a perfect size for us. The unit is very well equipped and cutely decorated.

It was a bit further from the big city than we would have liked but public transportation is very convenient and Ruth and Henry were awesome at providing instructions and getting us going .
