The Space

Big, safe, house with your own two rooms. One is a bedroom, the other a large living room. Queen size bed. Very quiet house and nice integrated neighborhood.. Wireless internet and small tv. Share bath with one other person, but usually you have it to yourselves because there is a small one down stairs. Wonderful dog who loves people. My dog has 2 cats (they stay out of your rooms). You can use the kitchen, with your own food and all supplies as long as you clean up. Back deck and front porch with nice breezes. Air conditioning. Second twin size real bed is available for 3rd person with additional charge.

I don't do very short stays less then 5 days.

The house is one block from the Jersey City Lite Rail. You take this to the Path train to Manhattan or shopping in Jersey City. It takes from 1/2 to 1 hour, depending on the time of day, to get to the city ("the city" is what you call Manhattan even if you are in Brooklyn or Queens). Block is safe and neighbors friendly.

Look forward to meeting you. Gavrielle,

  • Gavs place was roomy, comfortable and good price. A bit far from NYC if you are there for a short time and want to fit a lot in, but in a way it is nice to be a bit away from it all (particularly for parking)

    Response from Gavrielle:

    This person asked to make a private arrangement with me about changing dates to stay here. I told him he had to contact Airbnb to officially register the new dates. Private arrangements are dangerous for hosts and guests and his refusal to register made me feel unsafe. I emailed him many times. I cancelled his reservation 3 days before when he did not respond to any of my emails.

  • Our stay was just amazing. We had a great time and a lovely host.
    Gavrielle helped us organizing our trip very well. It was just great to be there.
    Her dog Casey is one of the most lovely dogs we've ever met. For someone who is good with dogs Casey will be your best friend!
    Getting to Manhattan is also easy and quick. The trains are reliable and once you got into New York traffic you will be fine with it.

    Thank you so much for 11 fantastic days!
    Hope to see you soon..

  • I had a great stay at Gavrielle's! Her and her pets are very friendly and enjoyable to spend time with. The area was calm and I felt safe regardless of the time of day I was leaving or walking home. It was very easy to get to my workplace in Hoboken; the Light Rail is only 1 block away from the apartment and it is reliable. Manhattan was a quick ride from the apartment also. In all, my 2 months there went very nicely.

  • I had a fantastic three month stay at Gavrielles place. It was easy for me to get to and from my university at lower Manhattan, even during evenings. I still miss Casey, the dog, and the two very relaxed cats. Casey is a german sheperd and is the sweetest dog I've ever met! I really enjoyed taking her for walks in the neighbourhood. Gavrielle is a story of herself. She instantly made me feel welcome and she has good sense of humor. [Beware, her sense of humour is highly New Yorkian :-) ] I could not have asked for a better hostess for my stay and regard her as a friend for life.

  • It was a wonderful experience ! Gavrielle and her pets were very kind. She welcomed us very warmly and we had very nice conversations. Her house is situated about 45 minutes from Manhattan and the Light Rail and the Path are very simple to use. All our needs were met there ! Thank you Gavrielle for this stay !

  • We just got our minds in order from traveling and we already miss her and her dog . It was a wonderful experience meeting her and her pets which were more than friendly. We hope everyone who wants to have a pleasant stay near N.Y books with Gabrielle because she is a very good host and a wonderful person. We will see you again soon i hope Gavrielle...
