Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I stayed at Jim and Rimma´s place for five nights. I traveled with my friend and we both have had a wonderful time! I chose this place mainly because of the positive reviews and they were not lying. Thanks to Jim and Rimma (and their two lovely cats Andy and Precious) NYC turned from totally strange city to a place that felt like home. Everything was clean and neat. You have your own room with coffee maker, fridge and microwave and private bathroom at the corridor. Its is a silent place, where you can rest from the rush of Manhattan. However, its true, that the place is quite far from there (especially the bus ride takes about 40 minutes in the morning) plus you gotta take ferry (approx. 20 minutes with nice view - Statue of Liberty, South Manhattan, Brooklyn), but it was definitely worth it, even more, when you are arriving at the Newark Airport - it is quite close. Moreover, we met a lot interesting people while traveling.
    Also, I cant forget to mention how sweet and willing Jim was giving us a lift to Penn Station - Newark at the end. It was his first time and he did not know the place precisely, so he kept asking the people on the streets for the right way just to be sure we gonna find our Greyhound bus terminal.
    If you do not mind the distance from Manhattan, there is nothing why you should not choose this place during you stay in NYC.
    We had a great time, thank you Jim & Rimma (and Andy & Precious :))

  • I had a great time living in Rimma and Jim's house. The room is very clean and cozy. I strongly recommend this place.

  • I reserved Jim's room from May 21st thru 26th. I arrived around 11 pm and Jim greeted me at the door with a big smile and friendly demeanor. I felt instantly comfortable and very welcomed. He showed me the layout of the house first and then my bedroom and bathroom. I was delighted because not only was it very clean, it was very nicely decorated. He had towels ready, water in the fridge and cookies. He gave me the keys to the house and said he's a phone call away if I needed anything. I was so impressed and I felt very safe as well. I didn't meet Rimma as she was away for a few days. His home, warm hospitality and personality greatly exceeded my expectations. What a delightful 1st experience with Airbnb. I totally recommend Jim and his home and give him a 10+++. ☺

  • We stayed here for 2 nights and had a great experience. Jim greeted us, was very friendly, and gave us the keys and showed us everything we needed. The room was well stocked with a mini fridge with water, microwave, tv with movies, and good size bed. The house is in a good location with gas station and restaurant across the street, and good access to the city.

  • From the time we pulled up, called James, met Rimma at the door, and received our key, we were welcomed. Rimma said, twice, "Make yourself at home!" My daughter cried before both nights and I worried that would affect our stay. I was glad Rimma did not complain, because her room was next to ours.

    The pictures couldn't have described the place any better than being there. The room was clean, with closet space. It was freezing outside, but it was super cozy under those covers! We were asleep in moments.

    I thought we might not meet James, but I was so glad that we did. It was good to meet the whole "team"! I really am glad that we spent the weekend with this particular family, because we were close to our destination. Parking was convenient both nights.

    We had a great stay in Staten Island, and I hope we can stay with James and Rimma the next time we need a place to rest.

    Things to note:
    Cats (very well behaved) - this means hair, though
    Shower only
    No ironing board - c'mon, get creative

    Super Duper close to I278 - Goethals Bridge
    Restaurants/Gas Stations/Department Stores/Grocery Stores
    Coffee maker and refrigerator in room (complimentary water)
    Desk in the room
    View from the room to see my car
    TV with DVD player and good movies

  • James and Rimma are very nice, friendly and helpful. The house is beatiful, confortable and there is a big confortable bed in the bedroom. There is a gas station open 24/7 and a bus stop in front of the house. The access to Manhattan was very easy because we took the bus to Saint George Terminal, at Terminal we took the ferry. On the trip by ferry between Staten Island and Manhatan we saw the Statue of Liberty and the Verezano-Narrows bridge, this bridge connect Staten Island and famous Brooklyn, the trip was so nice. A important information, the bus and the ferry work 24/7, so we didn't need to worry about the time.

  • Me and my friend we stayed one week at James and Rimma's place. They have both been very helpfull giving us lots of information about the city, bringing us to a theater and a jazz concert, a real inner in an american life! Warm welcome and friendly people! Highly recommended!

    November 2013

    October 2013
  • Jimmy and I spent 3 great days in New York, walking around the city all day long and going back to Staten Island at the end of the day like real people from New York. Nice experience!
