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.
It was great to stay at Luz' and John's place.
The area where they live is quiet and safe and the house and the room were very clean.
Every morning John prepared breakfast and dependant on where I wanted to go he took me to some bus station by car.
NYC is really easy to reach. It sometimes takes longer than 15 minutes because of the traffic.
But I felt always very comfortable and I would come back next time in NYC :)
My stay with Luz and Joan was incredibly amazing. They are wonderful, kindness, respectful and lovely hosts. Staying with them made my trip even best, they are good friends that I will always have with me in my heart.
Joan is very helpful, show me all places around the house, explained me about the transportation, prepared delicious breakfast (I will never forget the arepas).
Luz is like her name says: she shines, like a star. Lovely women, hard worker, special mom and spouse. I will never forget our conversations and her patience with me during all the week when I was looking for beautiful things to my wedding, we made sessions about dresses and decorations on my IPad :-)
Laura, their daughter is a sweet. She is very dedicated.
I spent wonderful 7 days a house with much love. Was the best choose I made. Any hotel could be more comfortable, clean, and so full of welcome and love.
Thank you for everything. My eternal gratitude.
All my best,
100% recomendable. John y Luz son muy amables y hospitalarios.
La casa está a escasos 15 minutos de Times Square (el epicentro turístico de NYC) en bus.
Al llegar, John se preocupa de enseñarte el barrio (un sitio tranquilo y seguro, por cierto), la parada de autobús, que se encuentra a pocos minutos andando, y te resuelve cualquier duda sobre cómo moverte por NYC.
La cama es ancha y cómoda, y la casa está limpia, ordenada y decorada de manera muy acogedora.
Este matrimonio te hace sentir como en casa. Le doy la mejor evaluación.
Pleasant and cozy atmosphere.
Very friendly and helpful hosts, that guided me and helped me choosing routes and whatever was needed.
Quiet neighborhood, very close to NY.
I felt comfortable in their home and in the company of Luz and his family.
I recommend it to everyone.
Luz and her husband John are very nice, and friendly. Luz started with a warm welcoming when I first arrived. The entire place is well organized, and clean. John also brought me around on the first day, to show me stop of the bus. Highly recommended.
I arrived more than an hour later than I promised, having negotiated the New York traffic, and found Luz waiting for me. She was every welcoming and gave me a tour of the entire house. I found entire place very organized and her instructions were very thorough. Her opening words were, "Welcome to my home, and now yours too!"
The room was ready and nicely done, and was actually nicer than it looked in the picture. The bed was very comfortable. It is good for one person, for a couple it'd be a bit small. The whole place, the rooms, the kitchen and the bathroom were all spotlessly clean.
The location is good, a quiet residentail neighbourhoods. There is street full of shopping and eateries about 15 minutes on foot from the house. The place is well-connected by rail and several bus routes. However the frequency is not great late at night and on weekends. So if you want to come back home at 04:00 hrs you may need to take a bus route which stops a bit farther from the house.
I loved Luz's family. She, John, and their daughter Laura were great hosts in every aspect. During the booking phase they were prompt to reply and clarify my questions. On my first day John gave me a tour of the neighbourhood and explained how the bus system works. Besides John's a great cook and I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast he prepared every morning. Breakfast conversation was very family-like and gave me a lot of insights into local issues. On my departure he dropped me off at the bus stop, making sure I took the right bus.
Summing up, a really good experience, and I would definitely consider staying with them on my next visit to New York.
