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 3 main rooms (bedrooms and living room) each have air conditioning as well as ceiling fans with lighting in those rooms as well as the dining room. The bathroom has a full shower and tub. 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.

Kerry was a great host. I was with my husband and his mother. We were able to check in early with no hassle. The two bedrooms were across the hall from one another and were great, warm and had plenty of space for us. This place could easily fit 6 with two in each room and two on the futon in the living room. The place was spotless, so clean.
Kerry left some starter items for us which got us through the first morning and then we went to the 24 hour grocery store on our way back to the apartment. We cooked dinner twice and breakfast each morning. It saved us sooo much money.
We drove into nyc the toll is $14, parked and walked around the city. We took advantage of Kerry's parking for an additional fee. It was so worth it, I couldn't see myself looking for street parking, it didn't seem always available. One less thing to worry about.
The view was great, but remember it is on the third floor of a walk up. So worth it if you are mobile.
There were plenty of towels and blankets, even shampoo, conditioner and soap. My only wish is that I had more counter space in the bathroom, not a big deal to contend with, especially when everything else was so great.
Kerry went above and beyond for me and my family, even accepting a parcel I had delivered to the apartment so I would not waste my short time in nyc shopping. I shopped all online and delivered it to the unit because they didn't deliver to Canada.
I would be confident in saying that you would enjoy staying at her place.
We had a wonderful staying at Kerry's place. Everything was clean and in good shape.
Kerry was extremely helpful and gave us advice on every single topic we asked her.
The location of the house was great at 15 min. from Manhattan downtown with plenty of buses and vans.
The views of Manhattan are great, even better than in the pictures!
Every night we used to listen to "New York, New York " song with those astounding views!
We will go back to Kerry's!
Very cozy and comfortable apartment, the view outside the window is...oh, you 'll die for it.
Kerry and her brother is very friendly and easy to talk.
It is just 10 minutes driving to Manhattan, the location is good.
For my first experience with Airbnb it was a total success. We stayed 12 days with my parents and my husband. The apartment is perfect. There is enough space for four adults. You're at 50m (170 ft) from the bus stop. The NJ transit bus traffic is cheap and the best way to go to manhattan (just remember to avoid rush hours)
Kerry is very nice and helpful.
She had the kindness to prepare jams, bread and milk for our first morning, so we didn't have to run to the next store to have a good breakfast ! On this point, The kitchen is perfect. There is everything you need to cook. (We cooked a lot.)
The view is fantastic.
The place is perfect to see the central park fireworks of new year's day, You can see the Ellis Island one too.
We offered a massage to my mother. (1 hour of Foot Reflexology) She said that it was one of the best she ever had. So do not hesitate, Kerry is also a good massage therapist.
We highly recommend !
Kerry's apartment is very lovely. It is exactly as seen in the pictures if not even nicer!
We stayed for 3 nights and were warmly welcomed by Kerry. She even left a bit of food for us and was overall very lovely host! There are two separate bedrooms, a kitchen with eating area, bathroom and the living room. Everything was tidy and very clean.
The bus stop is literally one minute away and you are at port authority in no time.
The cherry on top was the view from the apartment on the breathtaking skyline of Manhattan.
I'd go back anytime!
We thought the place was fantastic. Kerry went out of her way to make it nice for us, leaving snacks and a few starters. Location is great with an easy commute to the city. Overall we were very satisfied and enjoyed our stay.
Wir ( 2E, 1 K) haben 10 Tage in NY verbracht und waren sehr froh, uns für Kerrys Wohnung entschieden zu haben. Es ist angenehm nach einem langen trubeligen Tag in eine Oase der Ruhe zu kommen, wo man viel Platz hat und es trotzdem gemütlich ist. Die Busverbindung nach Manhattan ist super, ein Bus hält alle 5-10 min fast direkt vor der Tür, bis zur Port Authority Nahe Timesquare fährt man ca 20 min. Die Wohnung ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet, gut ausgestattet und sehr sauber. Kerry ist eine sehr herzliche, freundliche und hilfsbereite Vermieterin. Alles in allem rundherum empfehlenswert !
