The apartment is also a 15-20 mins walk to one of the best views of the Manhattan skyline at Hamilton Park (in Weehawken). This view is stunning and only a few well-informed tourists know about it which makes it nice and uncrowded.
Hope to talk soon!

Our stay at vivienne's house was amazing! She and her husband were really nice and showed us everything. The apartment is exactly as in the pictures and really nice and clean. We always took the bus to Manhattan which left only a 5 minutes walk away and we never had to wait for it.
I can only recommend staying at their apartment!
Excellent accueil. Tout a été fait par nos hôtes pour nous rendre ce séjour agréable: chambre impeccable et très confortable , bien chauffée , spacieuse, joliment décorée. Salle de bains très propre et fonctionnelle. Possibilité de se préparer thé ou café bien pratique. Tous les conseils judicieux sur le quartier et NY.
Semaine très réussie en grande partie grâce à la qualité de cet hébergement.
Vivianne's house is very cozy, affordable and homely. The room is very comfortable and the host made an efford to make me feel at home. It is really easy to get to Times square, and it is a lovely neighborhood. I love it!
Vivienne & Kad were some of the best hosts we have ever stayed with on Airbnb. They were easy to talk to, ALWAYS helpful and were super entertaining. The room we stayed in was big and cozy (I could've sworn we were on a memory foam bed). Our place was always clean, which was awesome!
Their place is a 15 min bus ride to Times Square, which made daily commutes to & from the big city super convenient.
I can say a lot more but I'll say this, if you are looking for a comfortable stay, in a good location with the most accommodating hosts-look no further.
Un super séjour a NY grâce aux conseils de Vivenne et Kad toujours disponibles pour des questions de dernière minute.
Un appartement ou l on se sent rapidement comme chez sois, très propre le plus est le lit super confortable ;) bien agréable après une longue journée de marche!
Nous recommandons cet endroit sans hésitation! Tout est parfait.
Merci et à très bientôt :)
Nós chegamos à casa da Vivienne e do Kadafi e logo fomos super bem recebidas pelo Kadafi, que além de ser simpático, nos deu mapas da cidade, explicou algumas coisas e ajudou a carregar nossas malas super pesadas!
O apartamento era realmente bonito e nosso quarto era muito aconchegante! Melhor do que qualquer hotel que pudéssemos pagar a esse preço, definitivamente. A cama era imensa (king size) e o banheiro era muito limpo e confortável.
O ônibus para Manhattan passa toda hora mesmo, um atrás do outro e a localização é bem fácil mesmo. Recomendamos o lugar!
Eles nos ofereceram um churrasco, algo que achamos inesperado e muito gentil. Kadafi é um cara muito alto astral, sempre pronto para ajudar e ser solícito. Infelizmente tivemos pouco contato com a Vivienne, pois quando ela estava em casa nós estávamos fora explorando NY. Como chegávamos sempre tarde, mal nos encontrávamos. No entanto, podemos dizer que ela também é uma ótima pessoa e faz uma batata à francesa incrível e um mousse de chocolate excelente!
Por fim, agradecemos aos dois por todo o carinho e ternura que sentimos. Apenas esperávamos ter um bom lugar para ficar em NY, mas tivemos mais do que isso ao descobrimos essas duas pessoas incríveis. Esperamos encontrá-los em breve no Brasil!

We arrived at Vivienne and Kadafi’s place and immediately we were very well received by him, who in addition to being friendly, gave us maps of the city, explained some things and helped on carrying our super heavy suitcases!
The apartment was really beautiful and our room was very cozy! Better than any hotel we could afford at this price, definitely. The bed was huge (king size) and the bathroom was very clean and comfortable.
The bus to Manhattan really runs every minute, one after another, and the location is really easy. We recommend the place!
They made us a barbecue, something we thought that was surprising and very kind. Kadafi is a very good vibe guy, always ready to help and be solicitous. Unfortunately we had little contact with Vivienne, because when she was home we were out exploring NY. As we always arrived late, we did barely meet. However, we can say that she is also a great person and makes an amazing french style potato and a superb chocolate mousse!
At last, we thank them both for all the affection and tenderness we felt. We only expected to have a good place to stay in NY, but we got much more than that as we discovered these two wonderful persons. We hope to meet you soon in Brazil!
Passionate about travel and meeting people from all around the world, my husband and I will be happy to share our adventures and travel experiences with you. Looking forward to hosting you or staying at your place :-)
