Before leaving always do the dishes, take the garbage out, change the bed sheets and put all the laundry in the basket provided. I do not charge for cleaning, so please give us a hand, leave the apartment clean.
The apartment was great und we really liked being there after a long and tiring NY day.
We had everything we needed for our stay and we definitely recommend it.
We had no problem in the communication with Barbara and all our answers were quickly answered.
Nice Apartment, 10 minutes walk from the path which connects Jersey with NY. Direct connection to World trade center in 3 stops. During the night sometimes a bit noisy, due to passing cars, police and firefighters. We would chose the place definitely again for a stay.
Barbara gave a very warm welcome and gave fantastic info & tips as to what to see and do in Jersey and NYC. The apartment was very comfortable and everything worked great. The commute to NYC is a nice way to experience life between the two cities, something one misses out on when staying in Manhattan. All-in-all, my co-tourists and I were very happy to stay at Barbara's!
A friend and i were in town for a few days, and this space was perfect for what we needed. When i first arrived there was a bit of an issue opening the door, but Barbara was there quickly and in hindsight it was my own fault lol. The place was clean, and the shower was great. The only issue we had at all was the parking, which isn't a reflection on Barbara at all. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
L'appartement était conforme à la description ainsi que la quartier. Les différents commerces sont tous à proximité.
El departamento es muy lindo y comodo. Estaba muy limpio y cumplio con todo lo publicado. Hacia mucho frio este invierno y esta muy bien calefaccionado. Barbara es una excelente anfitriona y cuando tuvimos una dificultad estuvo atenta a solucionarla.
El vecindario es muy tranquilo y seguro.
Las cosas en contra no tienen que ver con el departamento en si. Esta a unas ocho cuadras del subte (se llama PATH) que cuando hace mucho frio se sienten. Y la otra es que el subte termina en World Trade Center o en 33rd. Street y alli no se puede hacer combincion sino hay que salir y tomar otro con lo cual hay que pagar doble pasaje.
La experiencia ha sido muy satisfactoria y recomendable.
I am from France and live in this upcoming neighborhood in Jersey City and really like its diversity. I enjoy the arts and nature, traveling and meeting people. I am looking forward to meeting you!
