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.
The second and third bedroom share the second full bath. One bedroom has a king size bed, the other has a queen bed. Both bedrooms are spacious with large closets.
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 (website hidden) 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.
Important things to note about the area:
* We are not in Manhattan, but we are very close.
* The buses that run every 5 minutes, 24/7 take cash only, no tickets, no passes. The Manhattan "metrocard" does not work on this bus, it's a different system altogether. This is important to know when you are planning your budget. The bus is $3 per trip.
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. You can pre-buy books of ten for a reduction in fare.
Other Things to Note
Once the booking is complete I will email you additional details including options for travel from airport, bus stations, etc. When you arrive at the apartment you'll find an info binder with specific info on how to take the bus, where to go grocery shopping, cool places I love in the city, nice walks to see the view etc. It is important to me that you have a great vacation and a relaxing time, so don't worry too much about the small details as we will make sure you are comfortable with how things work so that you can have a stress free holiday.
This building, and many of the buildings on the street have exterior surveillance cameras.
You will have your own set of keys so that you can come and go as needed.

Great place in quiet neighborhood that has what you need of stores. Bus into Manhatten (times square) 200 meters down the street from the apartment uses barely 10 minutes and you are in the heart of New York.
The apartment is large and spacious so kids had plenty of room to move on and separate bedroom which also had a private bathroom. Ther are also a folder informing about the neighborhood, transportation etc in the apartment..
Maria is a very pleasant and assist women who have several apartments in the area, so she is usually not too far away.
We would not hesitate to recommend her as great a host.
Maria's flat was fantastic. It was spacious, well equipped and had a good location. It was a perfect place for a family of 5 with teenagers. Ibrahim & Sylvi from Norway.
We had a great experience with this booking. Maria made us feel very welcomed. The apartment was everything we expected and more. Getting into Manhattan was quick and easy. We would definitely recommend this apartment/host.
The apartment is great, Maria was waiting for us saving for us a parking space, she was really helpful all the time. The apt is huge and clean, the bedrooms and restrooms are in great shape, clean and spacious, I would definitely stay here again.
Maria was absolutely awesome and helpful even before we got there! The neighborhood was very niece and clean, convenient store and laundry room within steps from our door! Follow her directions and your literally 10 mins into Time Square. house was very spacious and clean. There was 7 of us total with 2 younger kids and we all loved it. Coming from Hawaii it was a little different from what I am used too but Maria came over explained everything and was always a phone/text away. She made us feel welcomed and safe. I would defiantly stay here again and highly recommend this place! Thank you Maria ALOHA from HAWAII
Maria ist eine tolle Gastgeberin
Das Apartement war klein u schnucklig und für zwei personen perfekt. Wir waren ja eh nur zum duschen u schlafen dort
Die Fahrt nach New York mit dem kleinen Bus war anfangs abenteuerlich aber ging immer reibungslos und super von statten.
Einen Parkplatz hat sie uns auch zur Verfügung gestellt. Zwar vor ihrem haus u nicht direkt bei uns. Aber das war zwei Blocks entfernt und mehr als perfekt
Alles in allem super und ich kann nivhts negatives finden!!!!!!
Maria was there to welcome our party of five - we had had a long drive from Toroonto and Maria was there to reassure us that all would be well.....the apartment was well furnished and perfect for our two night stay in NYC. There was a accommodation manual which had all the information and Maria was always at the end of the phone to answer questions. Thank you Maria, we had a ball

About the Host, Maria
We have a number of listings, so look for me online at superhostnyc. 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.
