About this listing
STUDENTS friendly. We live in the outskirts of Manhattan, across the Hudson river. This is a bedroom suburb to NYC. A few blocks from the Lincoln Tunnel, with buses to Times Square-Manhattan frequently. Great price for those in a budget, cheaper than NYC & more spacious. Safe neighborhood. Many affordable Cuban restaurants near by. Host is off premises so you wont be in anybody's way. We clean everyday. Read reviews!

Interaction with guests
My parents own this property, they are an older couple that lives in the upstairs apartment - but the floor where the available room is has its own entrance, independent from upstairs- anything you need they are very hospitable and welcoming.
There are plenty of cheap restaurants and stores walking distance. When you arrive we have a list of tips on what to do and where to go, in NY and in our town so you can enjoy your trip!
There are many bus lines that take you directly to Manhattan in less than 15 minutes walking distance from the house. You can even take a ferry is you want to enjoy the NYC skyline view and take amazing pics. We provide a map with direction on where to take the buses given that if you dont know, you might go up the hill to take them which is fine, if you want the exercise!
Other things to note
From the Newark airport, you can take a bus or a $60 cab to the house. We know Uber drivers that if you contact them before hand, can go pick you up as Uber is not allowed in airports. From LaGuardia or JFK take a subway to Port Authority (Times Square) and there you take bus 127 - our stop is the 3rd one, super easy! Use (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) map that details every step for directions.
We provide towels and place them in your room. We keep every corner of the apartment spotless clean and we ask you to place your unwanted items in the garbage containers. For stays longer than 4 weeks, we can arrange for you to use the laundry facilities at the property on Saturdays. IMPORTANT: anything outside you room has to remain neat and organized - keep your belonging in your room and keep in mind that the apartment is shared, therefore, you need to keep the visible areas looking neat so when people pass by don't feel uncomfortable. Since the bathroom is share, please don't keep personal belonging there and do not move decorations. When you leave, please leave the keys on top of your dinning room table.
Please take care of towels and bedclothes as if your own - we will report to AirBnB any missing or stained sheet or towel at a $30 rate per piece.

I'm Cloudya, Miami is my current home and my parents live in NJ (across the river from NYC) so we both work on making travelers experiences unique and amazing.
We are originally from Uruguay (South America) and we bought these properties a few years ago. We have renovated both places completely and to new.
My mom (Bianca) will be your point of contact while in the NJ flat - I take care of the pre-arrival communication and the Miami place.
My parents wont be on your face but they are available anything you need. The only thing we ask is for you to treat our home with the same respect you would treat your grandma's and embrace the sharing community that characterizes AirBnb.
Enjoy the Big Apple and and let me know if you want to visit Miami :)
