MAKE SURE YOU CHECK MY OTHER LISTINGS FOR AVAILABILITY
This apartment is totaly independant and not shared with anyone.
We are located 15 minutes to Manhattan direct to Times Square by bus.
If you were to stay in the Bronx it would take you 40 min to get to Times Square. If you were to Stay in Brooklyn it would take you the same amount of time as subways in Brooklyn are not direct. If you were to stay in Manhattan you would not find a place as big as this one for this price.
There are many buses going direct to the City in the heart of Times Square. 24/7 bus services to the City. The bus stop is just around the corner from the house.
Transportation is probably underrated. There are about 3 -4 major bus routes which go along the cliff coming into port authority in about 20 min. There is a free bus to a ferry at the bottom of the cliff which comes round every 10 min. There are also the little jitney buses which come around every few minutes get you into town. So across the official NJ Transit, the little jitney buses and the ferry you can get into town at any time within about 20 min. Oh yes there is another bus into hoboken from boulevard east (road on the cliff) as well.
The bus will take you to Port Authority 42nd St subway station (lines A, C, E). This station is a central subway hub and you can easily walk to lines 1, 2, 3, 7, N, Q and R. (Important: Subway tickets cost $2.5 per ride but you can buy 7-days unlimited pass at $29)
The apartment is an independent 3 bedroom
It is equipped with bed linens, towel and private bath, cable TV in each room, WIFI
It has a nice balcony overlooking the garden where you may use the BBQ
There are many little restaurant near the house and the neighborhood is safe.
The house is located a block away from Boulevard East where you will see breathtaking views of the Manhattan and million dollar houses!
Best panoramic view if you ask me.
Parking is available at no extra cost
The apartment was as advertised, and as pictured. Host's family member was on site, and was friendly and helpful. Miyoko was easy to deal with, and quick to respond to all communication.
The apartment is very convenient. Inside parking, and regular buses to the city right outside the door.
My first time with Air bnb. A positive experience. And, I would return to this property, or to any managed by Miyoko.
Nice Place, Friendly Host, great surroundings...very happy with the selection.
Appartement vaste et correct.Cependant accès impossible à des personnes handicapées ou à mobilité réduite.Arrêt de bus à proximité.Propiétaire très à l'écoute.
buen lugar para pasar unos días en New York, limpio,y bien equipado. Excelente ubicación,tal i como se describe en la esquina esta el bus que te lleva en 15 min a Times Square. Tiene , desde la calle unas vistas impresionantes de Manhattan, es una zona muy tranquila con comercios cercanos donde comprar comida o restaurantes. Nosotros fuimos con nuestro perro y solo cruzando la calle hay un parque canino increíble . Recomendable 100x100.
Super appart très bien placé à env. 15min de bus de Time Square même aux heures assez chargées. Arrêt de bus vraiment juste en bas de l'appart et magnifique vue sur la Skyline pendant l'attente du bus!!
Appartement très fonctionnel avec terrasse, largement assez grand pour 6 personnes.
On y reviendra sans hésiter si on retourne à NYC.
The place is as subscribed in that it is pretty basic and relatively clean, although we did find it a bit dusty. The managers Raul and Blanca are quite nice and accommodating. There is a nice, young family that lives on the first floor and they pretty much keep to themselves.
However, we did have some concerns that we feel are important enough to express:
The neighborhood is a typical middle class working neighborhood, the people are nice but the variety of stores and places to eat is rather limited.
The apartment itself reminds me of the late 70s early 80s in terms of the look and feel although the bed mattresses can use some upgrading. The bed in the middle bedroom is concave and not very comfortable at all. We recommend you bring your own linens as the ones provided did not feel good, especially the comforters. The bathroom is small so if you have children it may be difficult to bath them.
The house itself looks a bit unkept from the outside and can use a bit of sprucing up. There are a set of concrete steps that you must navigate to get to the entry on the 2nd floor. There is no railing and at night there is no light so it can be treacherous. There is also an iron gate that does not close fully. Once inside you have to navigate a second swallow set of steps that take you to the apartment. We had our child with us so climbing those stairs with a stroller proved to be quite the task.
4. We choice to park our SUV in the garage, but we could barely fit it in. The garage would fit a standard car comfortably, but if you have an oversized SUV you may have problems. We had about 2 inches of clearance on either side of ours. A bit of caution, the garage door does not work or lock. You have to manually pull it up and down, and it is quite heavy.
All in all we thought the place was fair. For our purposes we simply needed a place to stay while our place was being renovated. Not sure we would ever pay $135 a night again to stay, but we enjoy the area and it apartment fulfilled its purpose.
le sejour etait agreable, l appartement correspond bien à l annonce.
tres bonne communication avec Miyoko.
A recommander pour toute location
Excellent stay at this appartment. We were welcomed by the family of owner Raul, who were very friendly. We arrived late at the appartment, but no problem at all, and could even park our rental in the garage. Great work! The apartment is spacious, with a living and a separate dining room, 3 bedrooms (2 with airco), kitchen with many appliances, bathroom/shower/tub and even a roof terrace. The journey to Manhattan is close and easily doable by bus, takes you appr. 30 minutes from door to Times Square. As we had planned to stay our last night in a hotel in Manhattan, we had to transfer from the apartment to a hotel in Manhattan. The easiest way to do so was by cab, but the cost were ridicously high for such a short ride. In hindsight, we wish that we had stayed in the apartment, which was way better than the hotel (The Travel (email hidden). - be smart, don't go there, stay here and, this way, save money).
Would definitely stay here again, though you need to plan ahead, as you can not go back and forth to your apartment from Manhattan. Warm words for the reception (I think the couple living downstairs are called Yolanda and Giovani - my apologies, if this is not correct), the neighborhood is safe, nice and quiet, shops around the corner. Ms Blanca came by on the night before our departure to check in, thanks for that as well.
All in all a great stay, we can only recommend it!
If you're looking for a great place to stay while in NY, this is it! Located on a quiet street in "West New York" (which is actually in New Jersey), along the waterfront (which has views of the New York skyline that are simply breathtaking!!), this home is spacious, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked, and the backyard is perfect for a barbecue or outdoor meal.
Although we didn't meet with Miyoko (the owner) herself, she did make sure that someone was there to give us the keys and a tour, even though we arrived at 11PM!
There are many places to shop for supplies right around the corner, and there is a bus stop just feet from the front of the home. We drove from California, so it was wonderful to have access to a garage and not have to worry about parking!
The only downside was that the washer and dryer weren't working.
After a long road trip, we really needed to do our laundry but had to do it at a nearby laundromat. Luckily, there was one right around the corner. This part of New Jersey was very charming, and if we'd had more time, we would've explored the area.
This rental is worth the price!
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans cet appartement. Miyoko a toujours été disponible pour répondre aux questions. Elle nous a aussi donné les coordonnées de son ami Jay pour le transfert de Newark à l'appartement et retour. Les bus entre le New Jersey et Times Square sont réguliers mais il faut quand même être attentifs au retour après 22H00 car il y en a un peu moins et vous risquez d'attendre un peu.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
