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 third 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, airy and six oversized windows drenching in sunlight. The kitchen is modern and is fully supplied with dishes and cookware, and wraps you up with old world charm. The bathroom is tastefully designed and complete with full sized bathtub and quality showerheads. Fresh linens and towels are included. Rest peacefully on a queen sized foam mattress bed. This apartment is loaded with closets space to make your stay fill with comfort and relaxation.
Two bedrooms total; the second room has a twin size sitting area that can easily convert to a bed if needed. Of course, there is satellite television, high speed wireless Internet, and your own Washer and Dryer included. 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. Half a 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 five-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 is extremely hospitable. The day that I arrived, I felt right at home. Charlaine pays attention to the little details that makes someone feel at ease, from the abundant plate of blueberry muffins and orange juice I was greeted with, down to the bathroom and cleaning products I didn't have to run out and buy. The apartment is very well kept, and very pretty. I recommend for anyone to stay here. Towards the end of my stay, I really didn't want to leave!
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Charlaine in Jersey City. Charlaine was an extremely welcome and friendly host. She was helpful with directions, advice, and assistance in getting the TV back in working order after we accidentally pressed a wrong button. My wife was especially delighted with the company of the beautiful cat who lives in the house. The apartment itself is very comfortable although the furniture is a bit spare. The kitchen facilities were excellent, which was important to us as we prefer to cook most of the time. The area is a bit gritty but we felt very safe. Parking was available on the street; it generally took about 4-5 minutes to find a good space as one has to pay attention to alternate side of the street street cleaning. All in all, we were satisfied with our experience. In fact, it was a real bargain.
We had a very nice stay at Charlaines apartment. Very nice neighborhood, close to the ferry to Manhattan.
My sister and I stayed with Charlaine for a week in November 14 and she was a really good host, both during our visit and with the communication before. She welcomed us with beautiful cakes with milk and juice in the fridge! whihc was very much welkcomed after our long journey from the UK. She gave us little nuggest of information to help our stay go alot smoother. There is free wifi which works well, decent TV channels and all homely gadets you would need including hari dryer, ironing, cooker, tea towels - the kitchen was really well stocked with everything you need. There were plenty of CLEAN towels, the apartment was really clean and so was the bed linen. Would highly recommend and stay here again! many thanks
Appartement bien équipé et très propre. Charlaine est une hôte très sympathique et chaleureuse.
L'appartement se situe à 20 mn à pied de la station Groove path mais vous pouvez aussi héler le bus n°4 sur le trottoir en face qui vous y emmène pour 1,5 dollars.
La situation de cet appartement nous a permis de sortir de NYC et de profiter du ferry pour se rendre sur Manhattan avec des vues magnifiques. Pour visiter la Statue de la liberté et éviter la foule, vous pouvez aussi partir de l'embarcadère au bout du Liberty park, à 30 mn de marche cool de l'appartement. Le jour de votre départ, si vous avez votre avion le soir, il existe une consigne à bagage qui vous évite de revenir à Jersey City (Schwartz travel service dans la 45ème west , entre la 5ème et la 6ème avenue, en face d'un restaurant italien "via italia" pour 10 dollars le bagage). Bon séjour chez Charlaine!
The apartment was great, cozy, very clean, plenty of towels, crisp clean linens, blueberry muffins, coffee and milk. The host was very friendly and made us feel at home.
The apartment was very clean and charlene was waiting for us when we got there, she showed us the apt, had milk, juice and (awesome) muffins waiting for us. The apt has everything u need to have a confortable stay. It takes about 25 mins to walk to the path (7-10dlls taxi ride) and from there about 20 mins to get to NY, she was very nice to let us stay a few hours more cause our flight left later. So its a pretty good deal considering how much you would pay if u stayed in ny. :)

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.
