This was my second time staying at this place. I returned here because it is safe clean and overall a wonderful choice. I am a single traveler and I feel very safe at Tonys place. Everything you could ask for is at your disposal. Parking is provided and all toiletries. Bed is spectacular. Owners are upscale folk who go out of their way for you. I will be back again for sure. Don't hesitate on this 5 star deal. Thanks Tony and Geri for a wonderful 2nd time around.
My best friend and I took a girls trip here for the long Presidents' Day weekend and it was nothing short of amazing. Two 24 year old Texas women in the big city for the first time, clueless. Tony greeted us kindly with a bottle of wine and a full tour of the surrounding areas. He also gave us a play by play on how to get around, where to go and where to eat. The ferry is less than a 10 minute walk and travels every 30 minutes (15 mins during rush hour) 24/7 free of charge to Manhattan. The neighborhood is quiet, even after dark we felt extremely safe. Tony and Gerri supplied us with the kitchen and bathroom essentials but went above and beyond with: toothbrushes, shampoo, toothpaste, razors and anything else we may have forgotten to pack. We even received a phone call the day of our departure welcoming us to stay longer at no charge if we needed it. With our flights being later in the afternoon this came as a nice surprise. Thanks so much for loaning us your place, we enjoyed our time greatly and hope to stay here again in the future.
From the moment my wife and I crossed the threshold we knew we could not have made a better choice. Everything about the apartment was first class. From the spotless bathroom to the comfortable bed, the accommodations were better than many of the well known hotels I have stayed at. The kitchen was fully equipped to prepare the most basic breakfast to a complete dinner. An off-street parking spot was an added bonus. Only a short walk to the ferry as well.
Our hosts, Gerri and Tony did not treat us as guests but more like family. They even left us a box of truffles as a Christmas gift (must have known I have a sweet tooth).
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone needing lodging in the St. George area. Close to the ferry and several good restaurants.
Our sincere thanks to Gerri and Tony. We will be back!
Me and my friend stayed in this apartment for 5 nights during the winter (we spent our New Year's eve quietly in this chic apartment - drinking wine, eating pizza and watching the ball drop on TV). It's a perfect place to relax after a long tiring day in Manhattan. The neighborhood is very peaceful which is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The place is complete with everything you could ask for. Tony gave us maps and lists of places/restaurants which are really helpful for first timers in New York like us. They also gave us free coffee, tea, popcorn, etc. The bathroom is complete with toothbrush, toothpaste, robes, towels, hair dryer, soap, shampoo, etc as well. Tony told us that they want their guests to feel like they are staying in a five start hotel and he's totally right. We stayed in a hotel in DC a night before staying in this apartment and I could say that our stay at Tony and Gerri's was better than the one we had in the expensive hotel. The apartment also had a TV that is complete with premium channels, and a laptop. The kitchen is also complete with everything you need for cooking. We bought some groceries in the deli just half a block away from the apartment and cooked our breakfast everyday (we saved a lot of money!). Tony made sure we got everything we need and checked on us in the mid of our stay to ask if we need anything - they were very thoughtful. I booked this apartment basing on the reviews and it did not disappoint. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. I'd definitely stay in this place again when I go back to New York and will tell all my family and friends to book this apartment when they visit the NYC.
Thank you again, Tony and Gerri! You are amazing hosts. This is our first time to stay in a vacation home rental and I must say that you guys set the bar high for our next hosts. :)
Tony took us on a tour around the immediate area. The Staten Island Ferry was a treat to be able to see downtown Manhattan in the morning and then again in the evening. It was always great to come home to our welcoming studio apartment. There was a great little restaurant called Beso that was on our walk back to the apartment. The apartment was well stocked with coffee, tea, toothpaste, soap, shampoo and conditioner. We even got a bottle of wine! Thanks for the kindness of Gerri and Tony for making our NYC trip memorable.
We arrived to our apartment, which was easy to find, in the afternoon. Tony was there to greet us and gave us an amazing tour of the immediate area and all the subway and city information we would need. Tourist books were available in the room and local take out menus for the nights you just want to relax. It had a nice secure entrance and private outdoor sitting area, which was nice after a long day in the city to sit and have a glass of wine. The ferry was about a 10 minute walk, depending on how bad your feet hurt from exploring the city! ;)
We felt safe walking to and from the ferry, even at night. Everything was provided for us in the room, from toothbrushes to coffee creamer. There is a mini Mart right around the corner for anything else you may need.
Thank you Tony and gerry for the wonderful stay and we really appreciate the gift as we were leaving. I am sure we will be back to visit and stay at your rental!
