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 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.
Other Things to Note
From the Newark airport, you can take a bus or a $50 cab to the house. 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 close!
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 pretty so when people pass by don't feel uncomfortable. When you leave, please leave the keys on top of your dinning room area.
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.
We found everything like in the desccription. It was a quiet place, our neighbour was very friendly and Bianca was helpful when we were need of anything! She also provided some food for the first days.
So we enjoyed our stay there!

The place was absolutely comfortable. And, lots of helpful information was given.
Cloudya was responsive to our questions and requests. Bianca was so kind and nice.
It was a really nice and quality stay. Bianca was so helpful and sincere. House and rooms were really nice and clean. Also North Bergen, New Jersey is a really nice and safe neighborhood I walked home really night everyday and nothing sketchy. Overall one of the best places to stay for NYC trip.
The owner showed a great deal of hospitality. The room, kitchen and bathroom were very clean. You can find everything in this accommodation: from toiletries to umbrellas. I loved the Spanish speaking neighbourhood as well. There is a shopping street 5 min. on foot from the house (Bergenline). You can find there really good Cuban or Columbian restaurants and eat my beloved CHURROS! I highly recommend. Transfer to NYC is frequent, fast and cheap.
Cloudya had a very nice place and she had prepared a lot's of helpful information and instructions for her guests. We received a warm welcome as well as a warm farewell.
Blanca nos hizo sentir como en casa. Hasta me acercó al aeropuerto, cosa que agradecí pues no era nada fácil la combinación.
Everything was as pictured! the bed was comfortable and the size of the room was big enough. Cloudya and Bianca's communication was excellent (Bianca was very nice and gave us a lot of great information). They provided towels and even some toiletries in case you forgot something. It was great to see New York from the New Jersey side. The price for this is so much better than prices to stay in NY. It didn't take long to get into the city. I would definitely stay here again.

About the Host, Cloudya
I am an international correspondent and I travel from NY to Miami in a weekly basis so when I'm away, my parents take care of my flat in NJ and my cousin watches after the Miami one.
We are originally from Uruguay (South America) and we bought these properties a few years ago. We have renovated both places completely and look new.
My mom (Bianca) will be the person that will be taking care of you while in the NJ flat - I take care of the logistics.
Enjoy these wonderful cities and leave us a review :)
