Stay in a bright, sunny, and spacious one bedroom private condo in historical Van Vorst Park, Jersey City- only 6 min to downtown Manhattan on the PATH train.
Restaurants, cafes, art, music, and markets are all within walking distance.

The Space

Stay in the comfort and convenience of Jersey City when you visit the Big Apple... New York City-only an 7 minute walk to the Grove Street PATH train and a 6 min train ride to downtown Manhattan. Once in Manhattan, you can easily transfer to the MTA Subway or take advantage of our new bike share system! (website hidden)

The private apartment is located on the 4th floor of a traditional brownstone. There is a queen bed in the bedroom and the sofa is a twin pullout. The apartment is fully furnished with linens, towels (one set per guest for the duration of the stay). Laundry is in the building-so pack light! Wifi and TV set up with Hulu, Netflix and more. Enjoy breakfast or romantic dinner on the private outdoor deck with a fully stocked kitchen. Fresh farmer's market every weekend in gorgeous VanVorst park and grocery just down the street.

Various restaurants and cafes are all within walking distance. Local artists and musicians showcase their work at the Groove and Grove outdoor party every week next to the PATH station. Rent a bike for a one of a kind views of the Statue of Liberty while biking through Liberty State Park or coast up the West Side Hwy in Manhattan.

I am a thirty-something freelancing (actress, personal trainer, and bookkeeper) transplant from the South living here for the past 10 years. I enjoy being active, world travel, good food, and dancing...and hosting excited travelers!

Guest Access

The condo is yours to make your home. There is a closet, cabinet, and loft space, that I keep my personal things so no reason or need for you to access them.

Interaction with Guests

You'll be in communication with me personally. This is my home, so I clean it and am there to greet you, give you a tour and keys, and again to see you off!

Getting around

Grove Street PATH station is 7 min walk (to and from NYC and Newark Airport).
Taxis are at the Grove Street station if you choose. The Jersey Avenue light rail is a 3 minute walk (within Jersey City and Hoboken).

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The apartment (flat) is exactly as described, clean, large, quiet and it has a great terrace. It is located in a beautiful neighborhood and it's not far from the Path (the means of transportation towards Manhattan). We enjoyed being there and we had a wonderful voyage due to it too, because we could eat the breakfast on the terrace or drink a glass of wine in the evening!!It can help everyone make lovely memories of their journey to New York!

  • We zijn een week in het appartement geweest. De reistijd naar Manhattan (NY) was prima te (website hidden). 10 min. lopen naar de Path en daarna nog 20 min. met de subway. Omdat de verhuurster er niet was toen we aankwamen, heeft ze een filmpje gestuurd hoe we de sleutels konden vinden (prima optie) en een rondleiding door het appartement via camera.

  • This place is Jersey City was great. Marcia was a very nice host and had her place clean and ready for my wife and I to rent. The deck was a nice feature to have as we did use it a few times. Overall, if I had a chance to stay here again, I would in a heartbeat. (FYI, it's about 6-7 blocks from the metro and is on the fourth floor without an elevator)

  • Our little family of four had a great time at Marcias lovely place. The apartment and the amazing private terrasse was everything we hoped for and Marcia was very sweet and easy to contact - responded immediately and gave very good guidelines for the stay. The area was great - both Jersey City and Hoboken were very inviting and good with young kids. Going to Manhatten was also very easy - we took the boat from Paulus Hook. A great visit - can only recommend. Thank you;)

  • Thanks again to marcia! Our stay in Jersey City was fantastic! This place is very comfortable and quiet ! Very clean and with everything we needed to make our stay as perfect as possible ! The grocery store is very close and there are lots of restaurants around ! Marcia is a perfect host !!!!!!!! I will stay there again for sure at our next trip in NYC ! PATH train is about 10 min by walk ! And the waterfront view of downtown skyline is about 15 minutes and believe me .... it's beautiful at night ! There ' s a five guys restaurant close to the waterfront and you must go there to take something to eat before have a break in front of the skyline ! Jersey city is a such a lovely place and no problem at night to walk in the street it's very secured ! Be careful The PATH train is not easy to get during the weekend ... you ' ll have to take the PATH train from grove Street to 33rd street via hoboken. Thanks again marcia ! We really enjoyed our stay in your place

  • This was excellent experience, thank you very much Marcia! Marcia organised the check in and check out very well, even in her absence. Great neighbourhood, unbelievable value for money (remember, you have the whole apartment to yourself, and there is a private roof terrace). Quick connections to Manhattan (but check the engineering work schedule for the Newark Airport Train until July 2014 and of PATH trains on weekends during 2014, as there is some disruption). We are looking forward to coming back - hope the apartment stays on airbnb. Really, why would one need a small room in Manhattan if you have this beauty of a place :-)

  • Marcia was a fantastic host. She met us on our first day. Our plane was late and she was still happy to met us no matter how late we would get in. She gave us a tour of the place and also let us know what was around and how to get to the path, light rail, supermarket ect. The place was great. Very clean and a perfect size for what we needed. We would definitely recommend it to anyone. Thx again Marcia for being a great host. Emma, Arvin and Dakota
