An amazing week! The house was absolutely brilliant and a nice break from the madness. With it being in New Jersey, we thought it might be a problem but it wasn't at all, a 10-15 minute bus ride and you're in the heart of it, the bus stop is on the edge of the street and the neighbourhood is very nice and friendly. The house was cleaned several times through the week (I think everyday) I preferred staying here as it was a proper American suburb, and has a Dunkin Donuts a 10 minute walk away. I'm looking to go back already! 10 out of 10.
Awesome first AirBnB experience ...Gaby and Robert were great hosts and the house was really great... We had 10 people and we're all able to stay together in a clean house versus the alternative of multiple hotel rooms... Take Robert's advice to make the walk(about 8 short blocks) to the "Chicken Bus" versus waiting for the city bus on the corner they run like every 2 min versus the city bus that takes a lot longer.
Gaby made it very easy for us to check in. There is WiFi in the house. The house is a great size for 8 people, but it works for 10 also. Everything is in great condition. The neighborhood is very quite. The bus to Manhattan is literally 2 minutes away, and it runs every 30 minute or so. Be aware that it can be packed to the limit during rush hours ($4 one way – Metrocard not accepted on Jersey transit). It's a little annoying that one need to use the bus transit, because it takes a while to go to 42nd/8th, wait for the bus, and then the bus ride itself. The house is highly recommendable though, but personally I would prefer Brooklyn over Union City because of the easier and more flexible commute.
The host was easily available by telephone. Picking up the keys and having a parking permit was also easy. Nice little house with 3 rooms.
Someone came everyday for cleaning the place, which was a plus (always clean) but somehow surprised us the first day (we didnt know someone had the key to come at our place).
As in every apartment/house to rent on this website, the number of people that can be hosted is greatly over-estimated. The six of us were comfortably installed, but i could not imagine more people than that (I guess everyone as to advertise their place as having the capacity to host as many people as possible).
Otherwise, good location, calm and safe neighboorhood. Bus 123 available at the corner (goes directly to Port authority).
Staying at Gaby and Robert's place was great! It was super easy getting and returning the keys! The house was clean and perfect for our needs! It was nice of them to let us rent out the place for just one night and it's in close proximity to manhattan; just a short cab ride into the city! The beds were very comfortable and all amenities were in good condition and in working order :) we did see the place advertised as 1.5 baths but there was only one, so that was a bit of a surprise but no big deal in the long run. We would definitely use Gaby and Robert again! Thank you so much for everything! Cheers!
Fantastic stay for a family with four children that was so close to the city. Could not have asked for more
Dear Gaby and Robert, thank you for your hospitality. We liked your house and the area it is located in. We highly recommend Gaby and Robert as very friendly and hospitable hosts. The house is quite big and for four of us it was a perfect solution. It is clean and very convenient. Since we had breakfast at home, we appreciated how well equipped the kitchen is. Also, the biggest plus of this accommodation is its location: it took us 20 minutes to get to Manhattan. We will recommend you to all our friends! Yana from Moscow, Russia
