About this listing
Walking to distance to Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island with New York City Skyline.
Located in the up and coming Lafayette neighborhood, you are invited to enjoy the first floor of a hundred plus year old brownstone that has been completely renovated and wraps you in old world charm.
This is NOT a shared space. You will have complete privacy in your own private apartment.
The rooms are large, spacious, and airy. The kitchen is modern and is fully supplied with dishes and cookware, with a gas range, stainless steel refrigerator, granite counter top, and large dinning table. The bathroom is tastefully designed; complete with full sized bathtub and quality shower heads. Fresh linens and towels are included. Rest peacefully on a queen sized foam mattress bed. There is one very large closet and a one smaller one that is sure to accommodate your storage needs.
In the evenings, you can relax on a patio and enjoy a cigar, a glass of wine, or just the tranquility and fresh air. The living room has a large (full size) sitting area that can easily convert to a bed if needed. Of course, there is satellite television, high speed wireless internet, and the use of a washer and dryer included, as well as separate entrances to front and back of house. If you have a car, there is also EASY street parking.
You are convenient to everything. Manhattan in less than a half hour by convenient public transportation and barely 10 minutes by car. 1/2 mile from historic downtown Jersey City with trendy restaurants, bars, and shops abound; a sprawling and popular beer garden; and the Grove St. PATH station. From Grove St., take the PATH subway to Manhattan – six minutes to the World Trade Center stop or 15-25 minutes to Greenwich Village and on up to midtown. (From the apartment, it's a matter of crossing the street to the bus and eight-minute walk to the light rail, both of which bring you to downtown Jersey City.) Just a ten-minute walk to gorgeous Liberty State Park on the Hudson River – miles of cycling and jogging trails, nature center, playground, barbecue areas, and the ferry to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty where you will remember the astounding views of Manhattan and Lady Liberty.
While there are several NYC style “Bodegas” from which to pick up a few food items, there is also grocery delivery available from (website hidden). We live and work in Jersey City and love the location of this property because of its convenience and are happy to give you guidance on where to go and what to do. We also live in the upstairs portion of the house.

Charlaine è un ottima padrona di casa, accogliente e (website hidden) ha fatto sentire come a casa (website hidden) ha accolto con squisiti muffins e tutto il necessario di cui avevamo bisogno. L'appartamento è confortevole e pulito e completo di tutti gli elettrodomestici.
Il quartiere è tranquillo e comodo per Manhattan, puoi essere li in 20 minuti.
Charlaine est une personne très sympathique qui nous a bien reçu dans son appartement. Endroit propre et cosy. Nous avons même eu droit à des muffins le matin! Il faut aimer marcher (15-20mn) pour se rendre jusqu'au path train, train qui fait la connection pour arriver dans Manhattan ou sinon prendre le taxi. Jersey est un endroit calme et safe.
We really enjoyed our stay at Charlaines apartment. It was cosy, very well equiped and exactly like in the pictures!! It was very clean and we couldn't ask for more.
If you don't mind walking it is the perfect location for exploring NYC. From the apartment you have to walk 20 min to Grove St (PATH) or you take the bus (or taxi) which is much faster.
Charlaine was very nice and provided everything we needed (incl. muffins!).
Charlaine was the kindest and friendliest host! So helpful and always around to assist you if you have any questions. Mr Cuddle's is super cute too! The apartment was great and very clean. Brilliant stay!
Charlaine was a terrific host, let me know how to get around and lovely to chat to.
Great kitchen, comfy bed, could do the washing and an excellent place to base myself from.
we had a good time there. the host made us feel wonderfull. she took care of all the little details that was in the house. it was clean, feeling good, and was accesorized with everything she wrote and more. charlaine is a great hoster and helped us with everything we needed. the neighborhood was ok.
Charlaine is the ideal host - warm and welcoming and her apartment which is ideally suited for exploring New Jersey, and Manhattan was comfortable, spotless and proved a comfortable place to relax after a lot of walking in and around New York.
With fast wireless internet, loads to watch on the Verizon enabled TV, a plush kitchen and a heating system which kept the room warm when it dropped below freezing (celsius) the apartment is perfect for a couple on holiday in the city.

About the Host, Charlaine
Hello and thank you for taking the time to read about me. My family and I have been living in New Jersey, Jersey City for over a decade now and we cannot think of a better place to be. I too love to travel and have been all over Europe, Asia and Africa. My favorite place that I have visited is Tahiti…it just felt like heaven to me. I am a city girl and just love the idea that I live so close to Manhattan and I can be at the theatre in less than 20 minutes.
