About this listing
Welcome to New York City!
My family and I are happy you are visiting the city and hope you can stay with us. My house is located just across Manhattan in North Bergen, New Jersey. We are conveniently a short bus ride to Times Square. The bus stop to take transportation to Manhattan is near my house and you can take two different buses that pass on a regular basis.
The room offered has a full size bed, a closet, flat screen T.V with cable and international channels. There is a shared restroom.
There is a no smoking nor pets policy. Guests are not allowed to bring more people than what they have indicated, unless they have spoken to us first.
I have great time staying with Luz and her family. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. The room look exactly like the photos. The transportation to everywhere is just as described by Luz.
I was well received by Luz even i was late as I arrived at JFK airport at rush hours. Both Luz and John, Luz's husband are very accomodating, friendly and open minded. John never tired of giving me tips and guides to maneuver in NY city and the neighborhood.
They prepare breakfast for me for 4 days and I really enjoy the Colombian bread with mozzarella cheese. Really enjoy talking to them on everything, every morning.
On the last day, John dropped me at the bus station with the ticket going to NY... Wow! I mean where will you meet person that always accept you as guest but treat you like a friend.
If I would come back to NY City, will definitely stay with them again.
Luz and John were wonderful hosts! They are very informative and willing to provide directions on how to get pretty much anywhere. Their place is in a great area and it is very easy to get around, especially over to the city. I highly recommend staying with them!
I couldnt wish a better place to stay, it was so close to NYC and also it was safe even at night. Luz and her husbend was so friendly, they give me a map and they always helped me to find the attraction. They offerd me a breakfast and they took me to the bus station in the last day. I truly reccomend them for everyone!
Very nice room in a quiet neighborhood. The family received me very well and I was very confortable during my stay. The place is in fact very close to NYC, just 20 minutes by bus, you just have to be careful with the time you go to the city or back home to avoid the rush hour. I would definitely stay there again, It was a very good experience. BTW, Thank you for all the great breakfasts!
My stay was great! Luz and her husband John are amazing hosts, make you feel right at home. The room is exactly like the pictures, very comfortable. John and Luz even took me on a little tour on my first day to get to know around town. He explained to me which bus I had to take for each place I wanted to go, and even gave me a ride to the bus stop. I can't say enough good things about them, really impressed with the hospitality and recommend staying with them.
We stayed with Luz and John for almost 4 days. Before we even arrived, Luz emailed me asking me if there were any questions to feel free and ask. The only important question was how to get to the house from the airport. After a series of emails we had about 4 different options of how to get there. She was very patient the whole time and quick to respond.
Once we arrived she was so sweet to us and made us feel right at home. We saw John later that night when we got home and the next morning he showed us how to use the transportation system and even took us a to a beautiful spot to take pictures. Because we got our day started a little later, John was able to take us to the bus stop on his way to work.
Transportation was very easy, with no traffic about 15 minutes and with traffic maybe 30 minutes. We would come home at night and felt completely safe walking from bus stop to the home.
The home was wonderful and just as described. Provided our own privacy along with a mini fridge in the room.
This was our first airbnb experience and it was great! We would definitely stay with Luz and John again if we ever go back.
Thank you much!!
