About This Listing
Comfortable and spacious apt. available with very easy access to NYC and major highways in north eastern New Jersey. The bus stop for NYC is located at the corner of our block. Our apartment has 2 bedroom and 2 bathrooms, the master bedroom having its own private bathroom. The apt. is equipped with every amenity to make your stay comfortable at an affordable price, such as TV in each bedroom with Direct TV satellite and DVD players, a fully equipped kitchen and washer and dryer in the premises. Both bedrooms are equipped with a full sized real bed, linens and towels are provided and we ask that used linens and towels be left next to the washer located in the pantry. The apt. is equipped with central air conditioning and heating, and for our guests who arrive with a car, an assigned parking spot in the building's garage is included in the price. We ask that you advise us ahead of time that you will be arriving with a car, to ensure we leave you the remote control for access to the garage. In addition, for stays of more than 2 weeks, we do request that the guest hire the services to the cleaning person who prepares the apt. for arrival and cleans after departure, for bi-weekly cleaning, at a rate of $70 per session, paid directly to the cleaning person.
Raul and Erna have a beautiful apartment in a rather decent area of Hackensack. The place is near a few restaurants and is easy to find. There is parking available in the basement of the apartment complex and this helped us immensely because we were driving in from Pennsylvania.
The apartment itself is very clean and has a very homely atmosphere thanks to many photos and paintings that are seen in the living room. There are two rooms with two full size beds. The beds are about 6 feet in length so if you're taller than 6 feet, you may have some issues.
There isn't a train station very near to the place and we had to take the bus to NYC. The bus is very frequent and the bus stop is right outside their place.
I strongly recommend staying at Raul and Erna's.
We were so happy staying at Raul and Erna's! Raul was very easy to communicate with, and Hugo was very helpful. He gave us tips on where to go shopping, and which bus would get us home the fastest. The apartment was the perfect size for the four of us, and was conveniently located near grocery stores and restaurants, and was an easy walk to the medical center where our training took place. Thanks so much for letting us stay!
Excellent apartment close to NYC. There are everything what you need in good quality. The flat is cozy, quiet, calm. Location is really good. Pleasant impression on stay here! I'd like to recommend this apartment.
My wife and I were visiting family in NJ for 12 days prior to a trip to Italy. We stayed at this very convenient location for those twelve days and were allowed to return for an additional 4 days after our return. This was very convenient in that we were allowed to leave our car parked in a secure space at the property and we were able to leave some things that we did not need for the Italy trip. The two rooms worked very well for our purpose allowing an overnight visit from my sister and brother in law from the Philadelphia area. We also had access to a washer and drier for our used clothing from the Italy trip.
Everything worked smoothly and we were made to feel welcome by the hosts. The location worked well for the family and friends we visited.

About the Host, Raul And Erna
We are a retired couple (math teacher and homemaker) who spend significant amount of time with our children and grandchildren. Because our English skills are limited (Spanish is our primary language), prospective guests will primarily communicate with either of our two children, Paula or Raul.
Our favorite travel destination is our home country of Chile, where we go each year during the winter months in New York, although we also enjoy travelling to different destinations in Europe. We have been lucky in that we have enjoyed each new place we have visited, whether it be cities like Paris, London, or Rome or the quiet laid back style of southern Spain, leaving us always with a desire to return.
We are new to the Airbnb community, but our approach to hosting is to provide our guests with not just a place to stay but a home, where they may feel as comfortable as in their own homes while they do whatever their activities are that brought them to the NYC metro area, whether it be vacation or business, or to spend time with family or friends.
Because this is our home, we do request that our guests be respectful of our home and its belongings, and that they leave the apartment in the same condition as they found it. Also, for those guests that have an automobile, we provide them with an assigned parking spot for one vehicle at no extra cost. We ask to be notified in advance that if guests will be bringing a car to ensure we leave the remote for the garage at home.
