This is a spacious light-filled 3 bedroom 2 bathroom 1000 sq feet apartment in Weehawken, NJ. It is 10 min bus ride to Midtown near Times Square via the Lincoln Tunnel. As surprising as it may seem, this place is closer to Manhattan than other places located in Upper Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens or the Bronx.
Our apartment is 2 blocks away from the first bus stop after boarding from Port Authority Bus terminal in Manhattan. (Read further down for more details about transportation)
The Master bedroom is very spacious, bright and quiet. The room has a queen size bed, feather pillows and a cozy feather duvet. There's also a large closet and your own private bathroom. Plenty of space for a third person if they don't mind sleeping on the sofa (in this room) or on a roll away cot.
You don't have to bring bed linens, towels or a hair dryer, we will provide you with fluffy clean towels and all you need to feel comfortable and at home!
The house is equipped with central heat and air conditioning. High speed wireless internet, and other convenient things like iron, city guides, maps, etc. are provided.
Feel free to message me if you need any further details.
* Minimum stay 3 nights
Many ask about the price and extra fees and how to pay. When you put in the dates and number of people you will get our total cost. There are no taxes on top of this, but AirBnB adds their fee. It varies between 6-12% on top of our price.
All the payments are safely made with credit card to AirBnB when booking. They hold the money until the day you check in and will then transfer it to us.
Bookings with us are done with the "strict" cancellation policy and all cancellations should be done through AirBnB. This being said, if we manage to re-rent the place the nights you have canceled we can give a bigger refund to you than what the strict cancellation policy dictates. The earlier you cancel the bigger the chance that we will find other guests.
DEPOSIT is for keys and will be refunded by AirBnb once keys are returned.
Please note that 11am check out strictly enforced - we must be here to collect your keys to ensure prompt return of your deposit money.
* Your own keys
* Kitchen access (please be careful washing and re-shelving anything you used)
* living room, dining table
* reading material, maps, umbrellas
Interaction with Guests
I do not live in the apartment. I like to come by the morning after guests arrive to answer all questions and to make sure everything is in order. After that I keep in contact with guests via WhatsApp or other applications (Email or phone), so we can be in contact at all times. I am only a few blocks away and can be there in 10 minutes if need be.
This area is super diverse quiet neighborhood with a Walking Score of 91. You won't be bothered or have to worry about walking by yourself from bus. It's very family oriented and the people are super friendly. Make sure you take a walk 10 min north to Hamilton Park to see the incredible skyline view.
About Transportation: I have received many questions from people who don't believe it possible to be outside of Manhattan and so close to it, yet it's true. Here are some facts about transportation:
1. Apartment is 3 minutes (2 blocks) from the bus stop.
2. The bus is very frequent, I rarely wait for it more than 2 to 3 minutes. Most of the time you won't even wait at all. You will step to the bus stop and a bus will be there.
3. Buses are available 24/7 so you can catch them even when you spend the whole evening out.
4. The price of these express buses is $3 per trip.
5. You won't find these buses timetable or route on the internet, it's a private bus company that runs many lines in and out of Manhattan
If you want to take the pokey ol' slow bus, look up NJ Transit (phone number hidden), etc. Tons of buses go by here.

Just an amazing place to be, quiet, proper and nearly (10 min) to uptown! Thank you for your service! We've enjoyed our time in New York and also in Weehawken. We met also interesting people who spent their time in the flat:-)

The room is just like pictured. It's in a decent size, there were 3 of us and we never felt overwhelmed. This room has it's own private shower, and the instant hot water is a hug plus for me (who doesn't love a hot shower after a day worth of walking, right?).
The neighborhood is quiet and safe, and it's super close to downtown Manhattan. There's a white shuttle service which runs every few minutes, which is VERY convenient.
Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet Maria in person. However, she always managed to reply my text/answer thephone call, and provided much needed services.
I'd recommend Maria's place to anyone I know.
We arrived late afternoon of Thanksgiving and Maria though busy elsewhere kept in touch till I confirmed to her we had logged on to the wifi in the apartment. The apartment is truly a stone throw from the City, clean and well kept. I was thrilled on arrival and enjoyed my stay all through. I will surely call back when next I visit NYC and will recommend Maria's apartment to friends and anyone who is particular about where he/she stays. I would rather stay here than most hotels that have stars attached to them. Keep it up.
Maria and Jay are the best hostess and host I have ever met! Living in their beautiful, cozy, warm, spacious and transportation-convenient house made my colleague and I relaxed and enjoyed for 3 nights! We had such a good rest that then we could have a great tour around great NYC! They are so generous! I had lived in the houses booked by Airbnb in The Salt Lake City, west yellow stone and Boston, but It's the first time I could smell the fresh scent emitted from soft, fluffy and comfortable quilts! The transportation is very good-so many little white buses(which we took to NYC) , and drivers are all very kind! From the bottom of my heart， Recommend the house strongly！ 强烈推荐哦各位同胞，房东人太好了，另一房间没租出去就整套房子都给我们用了！
I didn't get a chance to meet Maria but her husband Jay met us and gave us the keys. The whole experience was really well organized.
We never had to wait for the private bus either to or from the city.
The room was spacious and clean.
Thanks for the hospitality!
What a fabulous little place in weehawken. I truly enjoyed the home away from home! I can't wait to come back again!

We have a number of listings, so please take a look at all of our places for availability. Each of our listings has very easy access into Times Square - we are big advocates of our local bus service which we call the "chicken bus". Buses run every 5 min, 24/7 to Times Square. Take a look at our guest reviews to see what travelers say about getting in and out of NYC. We are not agents, my husband, Jay and I take care of guests full time!
We are Canadians living in the US, and are well traveled ourselves and know how important a good nights sleep is while you're away.
We will make sure that you are comfortable here.
