  • The experience at Marva's place was really great. The apartment looks wonderful, it's very clean and cozy and it's not so far from New York.
    Marva was also a really great host, if I had to come again I would love to stay to her place for a new experience

  • My stay has been absolutely great! It has everything you need and more. The space is very private and comfy to call home. I have only been here for half my stay and I am so glad that I chose here to stay. If you are looking for a home away from home with a very reliable host, this is the best place to stay. The location is in a safe and quiet area as well as having transportation close by. Thank you Mrs. Hanks for making my stay wonderful!

  • When I just arrived I had a nice welcome, the fridge had food in it, Jazz music was grooving in the background and I had all I needed and way more than any hotel!

    Very well organized spaces with a nice neighborhood attached :) I think the bed was the best I ever slept in... I didn't want to get up!
    I recommend taking an afternoon summer walk to Verona Park in Montclair right next by, if you want to go back in time to colonial-revolutionary America, and to check out the sunset overlooking Manhattan from the Essex 9/11 memorial.

    I was traveling on bizness and had everything I needed to eat healthy and what I like with the wholefoods near by, fly out of Newark quickly and enjoy the living room space, abundance of closet space and spacious and pleasant Bathroom.

    Very good value.

    I hope to stay there again some day :))

  • We had a great stay at Marva's place in NJ. We were only in town for one night. The bed was very comfortable and the jacuzzi tub was just what I needed after a long week! Highly recommended!

  • The most important things should be said from the beginning: We never had better hosts! The kindness and familiarity made our trip easier and quite special.
    The best example is maybe this: One of us become unfortunately very sick. Most hosts would felt maybe empathy but do nothing more than that. Not here. We were supported as if we were part of the family. Soup for a quicker recovery, loads of tea and even a salt bath for detoxification. Thank you so much, once more!
    The accommodation was brilliant. Huge, bright and just beautiful. The distance to New York is perfectly fine due to a good train connection.
    The next time in New York, I want to be there again, because it's worth it and I felt like home.

  • Marva was extremely accommodating and helped me out for a last minute stay in Bloomfield. The suite is great- extremely comfortable bed, huge bathroom with a whirlpool tub, and a relaxing sitting area. Marva had set out coffee and tea for us and provided a lot of extras that made the place even better, like bathrobes, slippers, soaps and shower essentials, guidebooks for the area, DirectTV, and more. We saw Marva once during our two night stay and the suite was very private from the house, and she let us know that she could help us out if we need anything. Overall, our stay was definitely top-notch and I'd recommend it for anyone looking to stay in the area.
