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.
*Starting October 2013 there will be onsite parking at an additional rate. Please contact me for more information.
In the Autumn you can enjoy the beautiful foliage, the leaves change to amazing orange, red and yellow colors. In December, the Holiday decorations, especially in NYC is a must see!

The appartment is great. Everything like in the pictures. It`s very spacious for 4 people and it is very clean. When we arrives the fridge was filled with milk, water and juice and some jam and bread for breakfast. The view is just incredible, specially at night time. Transport to town is very easy - every couple of minutes there is a bus to PortAuthorityBus Terminal which takes about 15-20 minutes From there you have good connections to the subway or just a 5 minutes walk to times square.
Contact with Kerry was always quick by mail and text.
The neighbourhood is nice - down 51st street is a small grocery store - There is also a DunkinDonuts and a Subway close by.
We had a great time - and will come back - Zaidi, Guido, Luisa and Carina
Die Wohnung von Kerry ist wie hier beschrieben. Gross und sehr sauber. Als wir ankamen war der Kühlschrank gefüllt fürs erste (und zweite) Frühstück. Der Blick ist wirklich unglaublich - besonders in der Nacht. Transport in die Stadt ist einfach - alle paar Minuten fährt ein Bus zum Port Authority Bus Terminal (Fahrzeit 15-20Minuten) von dort hat man eine gute Anbindung an die U-Bahn oder man kommt zu Fuss zum Times Square in ca 5 Minuten.
Die Nachbarschaft ist sehr nett, wenn man die 51st Strasse hinuntergeht findet man einen kleinen Lebensmittelladen
Amazing location with the best view of the Manhattan skyline you could ask for! Got hot on the apartment as its on the top floor/attic of the house, but A/C in the bedrooms & lounge made it comfortable. After lots of walking around NYC the stairs from the ferry up to the street were a killer & then had to get up to the top floor! Worth it though for our views each night. Kerry eve had some bread, milk, fruit etc for us to enjoy which we appreciated.
Great place to stay!
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans l'appartement de Kerry.
Spacieux, bien aménagé, la vue sur Manhattan est superbe.
Le frigo avec le nécessaire pour les premier jours est très appréciable
Je recommande ce logement.
Thank you Kerry
As this was our first trip to NYC, we booked Kerry's accommodation based on the very positive reviews of other guests and it wasn't a disappointment. The apartment was exactly as described, the views of Manhattan are amazing and Kerry is the perfect host, very helpful and extremely responsive any queries. Getting to and from Manhattan is very easy, the bus stop is two minutes away, but we tended to walk down to Port Imperial and get the ferry to Midtown, there's even a free bus into 5th Avenue as part of the fare. The apartment has all the home comforts, modern appliances and is immaculate. All in all, it was perfect base for an excellent holiday.
We had a wonderful stay here at Kerry's NYC view apartment. Very comfortable beds, all the beautiful condiments, juice,jams, sauces, butter and bread on our arrival made us feel at home. The view is amazing and very enjoyable day and night, makes you have to pinch yourself. Getting to Manhattan on the local bus or the NJ transit bus is the best way to go, and only a short walk up the street.
I had a wonderful massage while staying there and it was just what I needed after travelling for three weeks.
Kerry is very busy but still is there for you whenever you need anything.
We will definitely recommend this place and hopefully return.
Kerry was very thoughtful !The view was awesome ,inside was clean.Everything was well organized and the city notes should help a lot .We didn't take any public transport since we had a driver through all the trip.Except the apt is a bit smaller for us but since New York is much smaller I would highly recommend this beautiful apt.I will be visiting New York next year and think I will rent her apt again .
Nous revenons de New York ou nous avons logé dans l'appartement loué à Kerry, l'appart est super, propre, rien à redire et la vue sur Manhattan est magnifique. Il est positionner 1/4 d'heure en bus de Times Square, vous avez tout à proximité mais sans le bruit de la ville de New York.
Nous sommes super content et Kerry est disponible et très gentille.
Encore merci pour se séjour.
