Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Dave and Chelsey are super friendly and accommodating.

    Their place is super conveniently located near the train, and the room is cheery.

    A great value.

  • Dave & Chelsey were very accommodating and friendly hosts. Their place is a little small but not cramped, comfortable, and the guest room is good-sized. No shortage of pillows! I would stay with them again, definitely.

  • Dave and Chelsey are so accommodating! I enjoyed a cozy, quiet room and slept like a dream. Place was clean, neat and also Chelsey and Dave welcomed me warmly like family. I felt at ease also communication great! Looking forward to next visit!

  • Cute, cozy, and charming place right by downtown Montclair! This was a lovely place to stay during the East Coast's 5 degrees weather. The apartment and bedroom are well-decorated and very clean. Dave was very nice and accommodating and helped me get squared away despite changes in my flight time/arrival. Definitely a steal when visiting this area.

  • We stayed at Dave and Chelseys' place for 3 nights. It was a great first experience with airbnb. They are very nice and friendly. Dave actually came and pick us up at the train station. Their house is really clean and cozy. It is only about ~3mins walking away from train station and 40mins away from NYC. There is a grocery store nearby and there are restaurants and shops nearby within walking distance. Overall it was a great stay; I highly recommend it.

  • We had an enjoyable stay at Dave and Chelsey's place. They were accommodating in every respect - from providing a welcome basket (toiletries, towels, etc) to sharing their open space (kitchen/bath/patio/parking). They made our trip to the NJ/NYC area into a very pleasant experience and we highly recommend them to others who are traveling to the metro area and would like to stay on the quieter side of the river (NJ).

  • Dave and Chelsey were perfect hosts, they went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed during the stay. Very convenient and cozy apartment for our trip.

  • If you are looking for a 100% pleasant and comfortable place to stay near New York City, your search has ended. This is the BEST Airbnb experience I have had, and I have stayed at quite a few places near New York. I have family that lives nearby and was essentially living half-time in Montclair throughout last fall. Now, whenever I go back to Montclair I stay with Dave and Chelsey.

    Chelsey and Dave are both incredibly nice and very easygoing. They genuinely want you to have a good experience and they make an effort. They offer a number of things you may not think of ahead of time, but once you arrive you are very grateful: travel size toiletries, very reliable and quick WiFi, comfortable indoor temperature, and free parking. Also, although perhaps on the small side, the apartment is extremely well laid-out and conveniently appointed. I have stayed in much larger places that are not nearly as pleasant. The bed is SUPER comfortable and you will like the abundance of pillows! :)

    The train station to New York City is practically next door to the apartment. I frequently left at 6:13 to walk to the 6:20 train and buy my ticket with time to spare. The ride in is about 40 min long, and on evenings and weekends you do need to plan a bit as trains are not at all frequent. However, you can't beat the convenience, and the cost is so cheap compared with staying in the city, or driving into and parking in the city!! It's definitely worth a little planning.

    So stop reading this and go ahead and book your stay. :) Chelsey and Dave are also very quick to respond. Enjoy your visit!

    Response from Dave And Chelsey:

    Based on the flighty messages written by the above listed guest, she seemed uninterested in holding her reservation as she canceled the first one on several occasions.

Although we live a short distance from NYC, we love all that Montclair has to offer. There are so many fantastic restaurants with amazing ethnic eats and enough shops to appease any person. Dave teaches middle school math along with coaching the middle school and high school track teams and Chelsey conducts clinical trials for pharmaceuticals in the city. Chelsey speaks french conversationally and Dave is becoming increasingly fluent in Spanish. We both love music and playing music, given the opportunity. On our off time we love to travel and experience different cultures. If you choose to stay in our cozy home, you will notice our eclectic collection of pictures and paintings from the different places we have traveled together. We love meeting new people and learning about different cultures all over the world.
