The space

We have one very comfortable guestroom available in this modern, luxury three-bedroom apartment - which is just across the Hudson River from NYC.

The bedroom can accommodate two people very comfortably on a full-size bed. We can also provide an air mattress if you have a third person.

This is a 'shared' apartment and we rent out two of the three bedrooms on Airbnb, so there may be another guest in the other room while you're here. We work diligently though to make sure guests are quiet, respectful and considerate of each other.

INSTANT BOOKING: We have Instant Booking turned on so if you don't have any questions, please feel free to make your reservation any time. It's not necessary to contact us in advance, unless you have some questions.

The apartment and bedrooms are completely furnished with a lot of thoughtful care for our guests. You'll have a full-size bed, desk, full-length mirror, hair dryer, shampoo/conditioner, liquid bath soap, bath towels, hand towels, high-speed wireless internet, a nice set of storage shelves and a large closet. You'll also have full use of the kitchen, dining room and living room.

Stay for a week for what it would cost to stay in Manhattan for one night!

We're very close to Manhattan. Even though we're in New Jersey, which I know sounds like a world away, you're literally just a 10-15 minute bus ride from the heart of Times Square and Midtown. In fact, we're closer to Midtown Manhattan, Times Square, the Theater District, Madison Square Garden, Grand Central Station, the Empire State Building and Rockefeller Center than other parts of Manhattan are... like Wall St., or the Upper East and West Sides, and anything above the 70's. We're also closer than most parts of Brooklyn and much closer than any place in the Bronx or Queens.

Very easy access to/from Newark, LaGuardia and JFK airports.

Brand new building, all new appliances - and everything works (unlike what you'll find in most New York City apartments). 1,700 sq. ft. total (158 square meters). HUGE and very comfortable for the New York area!

Includes full laundry room with washer & dryer right in the apartment! Laundry is $3 per load. Please ask us before you use so we can show you what you need to know.

Unobstructed views provide great light as this third-floor walk-up apartment 'towers' over the building next door with southern-facing windows and lots of sun!

24/7 bus service to Manhattan. Typical total travel time 10-15 minutes to the heart of Times Square.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL: We've put a lot of thought into making our home comfortable and safe for our guests. From putting nightlights throughout the public areas of the apartment, including the bathroom and hallway, to putting full-length mirrors in both guest bedrooms.

When people stay in a new place it can become a little disorienting if they have to get up and walk around in the middle of the night. So we've put subtle nightlights throughout the apartment so guests will always have just enough light to see and find their way around late at night. We also use a digital security system and lock, as well as a security camera in the public area of the apartment, for the safety of all guests.

We've also learned that if you don't have full-length mirrors in the guest rooms, then people will inevitably tie up the bathroom for an hour because they need a mirror. So we've added full-length mirrors to each guest room which has resulted in making the bathroom more available for all our guests.

We also provide shampoo/conditioner and bath soap, as well as bath and hand towels.

It's that kind of thoughtful attention to detail that we take pride in and makes our guests as comfortable as possible.

My wife and I and our two-year-old son live in the apartment. We have our own bathroom, so the other bathroom is for the exclusive use of our guests.

We're located in a working-class Hispanic neighborhood - so the neighborhood isn't fancy, but it's safe and convenient to New York - which is after all why most of our guests stay with us!

We're on the third floor of a walk-up building - which means there is no elevator, so yes, there are three flights of stairs to climb. But it's great exercise!

We're both very considerate and quiet. You'll hardly know we're here - unless you want to! We love getting to know our guests, but we're also considerate of the fact that not all guests care about that and most don't have time for it.

Really kind family. Good and fast ways to New York. Apartment is really nice. It can be loud for a couple minutes. The family got a little, cute kid. And kids are loud, that’s pretty normal. Since this is airbnb and not a hotel, that’s okay.
