Welcome to our Home! Our 3 family home is located on Kennedy Boulevard East with an easy commute into the New York City/Times Square area via the Lincoln Tunnel. We offer a newly renovated fully furnished 2 bedroom apartment with a direct and amazing view of New York City and the Hudson River. This apartment has its own entrance, so it is not shared, meaning the entire third floor is private. We are elevated at cliff level with a wonderful running/walking path and relaxing parks right across the street from our home.
The property has an onsite day spa with a New Jersey/New York State licensed massage therapist who works by appointment. Specialties range from Swedish, Deep Tissue, Foot Reflexology, and Prenatal Massage, as well as Spa Treatments
Our rental apartment is very comfortable and welcoming. We have furnished the apartment in a combination of light and warm tones with room to breath and good feng shui energy.

The living room has a 37” flat screen TV and Wi-Fi is complimentary. The bedrooms also have flat screen TV's. Additionally, you can look forward to enjoying the exceptional view of NYC while unwinding in the living room at the end of a long day.
There is a master bedroom with a queen size bed and walk-in closet and a second bedroom with a queen size bed as well. The bedrooms are very cozy. The mattresses are firm and comfortable and hygiene is of the utmost importance.
You have a variety of dining options locally ranging from Italian, Mexican, Latin style, Cuban, Mediterranean, Indian and Deli style cafes. For those who prefer to dine in, the dining room seats six and is connected to a full kitchen with available cookware and tableware. Within walking distance you will find grocery stores and smaller local stores for food items as well as liquor stores. Please let us know if you have special dietary needs and would like a few items stocked in your home (gluten free items, dairy free items, sugar free, etc).
Buses and Commuter Vans run consistently throughout the day (as often as every 10 minutes) starting very early in the morning for working commuters as well as running late into the night for tourists and locals. A faster commute option which is only a short walk away is the NY Waterway Ferry system allowing you to ferry on the Hudson River to different parts of Manhattan in a matter of minutes as well as offering dramatic close up views of Manhattan. Once you arrive on the Manhattan side, the ferry ticket price includes a ferry bus ride to some areas of interest in New York City, or you could simply take a taxi.

Tolles Appartement mit großartiger Aussicht.Die Angaben der Bewertungen vor uns können wir vollständig bestätigen. Kerry ist eine großzügige und hilfsbereite Vermieterin. Der Kühlschrank war mit den wichtigsten Dingen für einen tollen Start gefüllt und länger im Appartement bleiben wegen des späten Rückfluges war kein Problem. Vielen Dank für den schönen Urlaub.
Kerry is one of the most caring person, I have met. Her place is just amazing. Awesome view, great location and public transport which is literally a few feet away. Whenever I visit NYC, I would always hope to find that Kerry's place is available. My friends and I were so amazed by the place, that we wished we could live there. LOL. I have to mention one thing. I had informed Kerry that we would be arriving late, as we were driving all the way from Florida. When she noticed that we had not checked in, she instantly sent a message, asking if we were alright and safe. Isn't this an amazing quality? I was awe-struck by this act of kindness! If you want to visit NYC, trust me, there is no place better than Kerry's. Thank you Kerry for letting us stay at your home.
We, 2 adults en 2 kids (14 and 16 years) had a great time in this apartment. Kerry made us feel at home. In the fridge we found drinks, some fruit and bread and milk. Super!!
From the apartment to downtown Manhatten is really easy. In front of the apartment you can take bus (phone number hidden) and 168. Furthermore there are localbusses. Wuhout traffic jam it will take you about 20 minutes to downtown.
The apartment istself was spacious and had 2 good beds, a fully equipt kitchen, airco, and a (small) bathroom. We only misse an elevator because stayed we where at the third floor (pffff :)). Tv's in every room and a nice diningroom.
Das Appartement war genau so wie beschrieben -schön, sauber und gepflegt sowie sehr gut gelegen. Man hat eine traumhafte Aussicht auf die Skyline von New York. Mit dem Bus ist man in 15 Minuten am Times Square - Busse fahren regelmäßig. Wir können das Appartement uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen. Als wir ankamen, hatte uns Kerry bereits die wichtigsten Dinge für's Frühstück besorgt - vielen Dank dafür.
This was our first Airbnb experience and what a great start ! We stayed for 4 nights, A family of 4 with 2 teens. The apartment was spacious, clean, well equipped with everything we could think of. There were even some products Kerry left in the kitchen. We haven't met Kerry till the last day, but she left clear instructions and was available by mail whenever we needed. The view from the living room is breathtaking. The beds were comfortable. There are ACs in each room. It was so nice to return 'home' every evening soaking the skyline of the city. Hope to come back in near future.
The appartement kept all its promises, we loved it. Spacious and well organized. Good calm neighbourhood and the best view in the world. The ferryride to the city was an unexpected bonus if you want to spend some extra on the trip to town. This is a good Place to stay if you want to get a litle away from the bustle of the city. The mexican restaurant just up the street is also Worth a visit.
Thank you Kerry for giving us this good exprience!
집이 정말 깨끗하고 넓고 맨해튼을 바라보는 전망이 너무너무너무 좋은 곳에 위치해있어요. 그리고 호스트는 너무너무 친절했어요. 제가 체크인이 늦을 것 같다고 말해놨더니 밥도 못먹고 왔을거 같다고 빵 우유 과일도 주셨어요. 버스는 24시간 있고 밤 늦은 시간만 아니면 10분 내로 (phone number hidden)번 버스타고 10분이면 맨해튼 가실 수 있고 42번가에 있는 포트 오소러티 터미널에서 내려서 바로 지하철이나 보스턴, 디씨로 가는 버스도 타실 수 있어요(버스표는 터미널에서 인터스테이트 존 넘버2 사시면 되요) 이동하는 것 때문에 걱정이시면 무조건 여기 하세요!! 원하신다면 페리도 15분 마다였나? 있는데 만원이 1초증발 하기때문에 비추천이구요. 진짜 버스 내리자마자 집이 있어서 완전 행복했어요.
