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 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 a very nice and helpful host, we had a great stay in her apartment. Thanks a lot Charlaine!
Charlaine was an awesome host: helpful, accomodating, and very friendly! She made us feel right at home from the moment we stepped in. The apartment was exactly as promised and very comfortable even in hot summer months. Public transport was close, convenient, and easy to use. The neighborhood was beyond lovely - it blew my Finnish mind how nice complete strangers were to me. The greatest thing about the apartment is that it's easy to explore both NYC and Jersey City, which ultimately I ended up loving even more. Would definitely go again!
Charlaine was a wonderful host. She even made herself available to greet us at 2am when we arrrived after a late flight. We knew she was available if we needed anything, but the apartment was very private and we didn't see the host if we didn't need to. We loved everything about the roomy apartment: the large eat-in kitchen, large bathroom, roomy sitting room, multiple closets, 2 bedrooms, and all the windows. The neighborhood is nothing special, but just a quick ( 10 min.) Uber ride to the lovely downtown and path train to the city. We would stay here again for sure!!!
Charlaines apartment war sehr schön eingerichtet, sauber und in sehr guter Lage. Die Beschreibung hier trifft es sehr genau. Die Gastgeberin ist sehr zuvorkommend, immer mit Rat und Tat zur Stelle wenn man sie braucht und sehr respektvoll gegenüber der Privatsphäre ihrer Gäste. Die "Blueberry- Muffins" zur Begrüßung allein sind eigentlich schon die Buchung wert! Die Nachbarschaft ist sehr freundlich und authentisch! Die gute Lage nahe dem "PATH-train" machen die Wohnung zu einem idealen Ausgangspunkt für Erkundungstouren in den "concrete jungle NYC"!
We stayed a week in Charlaines home the flat was nice and not to far from Jersey Path connection to MY 15min walk . Cherlain is very nice person.
Popis ubytovania zodpovedal nabitke. Hostitelka bola velmi mila, ochotna pomoct a poradit. Ochotne nam pozicala nabijacku na telefon, vytlacila doma kupony na newyour pass.... Izby boli utulne, ciste, svetle...
Charlain's apartment was as expected. Spacious, very comfortable and clean, with all you need from hair dryer to washing machine. The neighborhood is quiet and not so far from NYC. You can find everything you need in groceries and supermarket as 'Pathmark'. If you're looking for a spacious place next to New York where you feel like home, you might seriously consider this one.
We enjoyed it so much that we cannot think of an other place to stay next time. We really appreciate our host as well who was so kind and helpful, always giving us good advises. Charlain is very attentive to the needs of their guests, yet unobtrusive. She took care of us from our arrival to the very last minute of our departure.
Thank you very much Charlain for giving your energy and your time so gracefully.

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.
