The Space

This so much more than just a room. You have access to the Kitchen. With fridge, stove microwave. dishes etc. Living room with 61" TV sofa and recliners. also Access to the outdoor Yard with patio chairs.

Come to an as yet well kept secret in New York. A beautiful quiet community with tree lined streets and Natural setting. Oh yeah. did I say you're still in NY.

Runners be ready to get up late and even warm up on the way to the starting Line. The NYC Marathon Start is Less than 2 miles away. Leave ten minutes before the start and still be there on time. the 2012 event will be underway in Nov. so book early

You have access to a Shared Livingroom with space for socializing and relaxing.

The Bedroom has a comfortable Queen size bed With a Memory Foam pad that makes it extra comfortable.(not shown in Pics)
The Kitchen has everything you need to prepare your meals.
Access to the yard and Lawn chairs to relax in the Sun or shade and
View the Ships cruising in and out of the harbor.

It's a 5 Min walk to the train which is free to most places on the Island,
a 2 Min walk to the Express bus ride to NYC only a 20 min ride!
Here's a surprise the Staten Island Rail Road Is FREE!!!! To most except
For two stops on it's route.

Or you can take the scenic route.
A free 20 minute Ferry ride into downtown Manhattan. It's a must see for anyone visiting the Big Apple!
You'll pass right in front of Ellis Island,
The Statue of Liberty
Governor's Island
and have some spectacular views of the downtown area.
Including the rising Freedom tower.
You'll want to make sure your camera is charged.

Just a couple of blocks to good food and you have a variety of food establishments including:

Really great bar Food

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Very nice person. He's a professional paramedic so his focus is on helping others. He definitely went out of his way for me, even paying for my admission to a local club, which was a lot of fun.

    I would definitely stay here again. Very exclusive area where the houses around you have Mercedes and BMW cars parked out front. But in the midst of all that high-class living, you have down-to-earth Willie.

    Easy walk to the train station and Hylan Blvd and many good restaurants, express busses, etc.

  • Had a great stay at Willie's place. He is incredibly accommodating and friendly. Will go out of his way to help you out if any is needed. We stayed for nearly 10 days and everything was fine. I definitely recommend staying here.

  • Era la primera vez que usábamos Airbnb y no nos podría haber tocado mejor anfitrión! Willie es super amable y atento.
    La habitación esta muy bien, muy amplia, luminosa y limpia.
    La zona super tranquila, a nosotros nos encanto!
    A menos de 10 min del tren que te lleva al ferry gratuito para acceder a Manhattan, esta muy sincronizado y no te hace perder tiempo.
    Volveríamos a repetir! Gracias Willie! :)

  • Willie's place is a "MUST STAY" It is very clean and safe, and in a great location.
    This was my first time using airbnb.com. To say I was nervous is putting it mildly. However, after my experience staying with Willie I am very glad I did it.
    The house is great and you feel as if it is your home and not just some room you are renting.
    Willie is very very helpful with communting issues and tons of useful advice about the city. His home is quiet and peacfull and I truly enjoyed being able to enjoy sitting on his back patio enjoying the weather. The location is a commuters dream. You are a very short walk to the train (that is free) that takes you to the ferry that goes to the city. You also have bus lines too. It is very easy to navigate anywhere in the city or surrounding area that you would like to visit from his place.
    I can't stress enough how much Willie makes you feel welcome. He is also very attentive to your needs. He is kind hearted with a warm soul, and quite funny. You have great places to eat within walking distance as well.
    One thing I was not looking forward to was sharing a bathroom, but even that was not a problem. I never once had an issue with needing to shower or anything and it not being available.
    As a woman traveling alone I couldn't ask for a safer place to stay. Also, I saved so much money having so much free public transport within walking distance. Not to mention his rates were more than affordable.
    I actually found I was sad when it was time to leave..I will def stay with Willie again.
