I had a great experience during my 4-week stay with Fred. The room is huge and bathroom looks brand new. The house and neighborhood are beautiful and are located in a safe and convenient area. It's a great location for anyone who happens to be working/rotating at Rutgers hospital in Newark. Fred is very friendly; he frequently checked in with me to make sure everything was going ok and even invited me down to dinner one of the few nights I was around (he is a great chef)! I would definitely stay again.
fred's place is amazing! a gorgeous house and neighborhood with a beautifully appointed room and fabulous shower!
the close proximity to the park makes it even more appealing.
fred was extremely helpful with recommendations and area knowledge and even has menus for local restaurants available in the room.
will definitely stay again!
What a beautiful room! This was by far the largest and most private room I have stayed in yet in the NY/NJ area. It was very elegant and modern, in keeping with the architectural background of the host. The surrounding neighborhood seemed quite safe and we parked our car on the street overnight without event. Overall, Newark definitely seemed a bit sketchy, but Fred's neighborhood was perfectly fine. I would just be aware coming and going through the surrounding area late at night, that not everywhere in Newark is as safe as Fred's lovely street which was definitely the ritzy, mansion-filled old town.
I'm so glad that I chose Fred's place for my trip. My schedule took me into NYC everyday and it was so nice to retreat to the peace and quiet of this gorgeous residential neighborhood. The room is big and gorgeous. The bed is comfortable and everything was clean.
The trip to the train was manageable. I wouldn't call it easy but it was fine. The immediate neighborhood does not have a ton of great shops or restaurants so plan to use your car for dining out and shopping.
Everything was exactly as it was announced.
Very nice area, the house is good too and it's very quiet.
Fred is nice and very efficient in all the information and stuff that you need.
It was a very good experience. I'd recommend it to any one...
I stayed two nights with Fred and the room was great. Fred was polite and would message me if everything was OK. Food in the area was excellent as I had some Peruvian food my first night. Wifi worked well. The location of the house was convenient to get around to places. Also, the neighborhood was nice and clean. I took a walk late at night to get some food around 9-10 pm, and didn't feel unsafe at all. I had a vehicle in which I parked on the street for the duration of my stay. Overall, my expectations were met.
Staying with Fred was fantastic. He sent me several additional emails confirming how to get to his place, and some texts when I arrived at the airport just to be sure where I was going, even how much to expect to pay for a cab. The room was perfect, just as described. Everything worked (internet, shower, TV/movies, etc.) And he gave me a ride to the train the next morning. What a delightful host. Highly recommended.
Fred is an amazing host. Fred and I had some issue with connecting with each other as mine was a last minute booking. I reached Fred's place late and could not communicate my arrival time and could not get in to the room when I went there. I called Airbnb and things got sorted and I could get in to the room soon after.
Except for that incident, my stay at Fred's place was fantastic. The room was clean, the bed was done neatly done and the bathroom is maintained very well. All and all the room exceeded my expectations and my first stay at Airbnb property is a positive one.
The room also had a TV+DVD player and a collection of over 40 DVD's for people who would like to while away time watching some movies. and it was late by the time I reached Fred's place. I guess Fred was
My flight the was at 6 AM from EWR airport and Fred was kind and offered to drive me to the airport and picked me up at 4.30 AM to drop me at the airport. That was really kind of him and he is a great host. I would highly recommend Fred's place and will stay at Fred's place on my next stay
Fred was a terrific host; frequently communicated before and during my stay. The room and attached bath were private and exceptionally clean. If work brings me back to the area, I'd definitely stay again.
I was in town for an interview at UMDNJ and came across Fred's place listed here in Airbnb. Being only a few minutes away from the university, location wise the place was perfect for me. The neighborhood was clean and safe with plenty of on-street parking. The house itself is gorgeous so it didn't surprise me that the room would be the same. Clean sheets and towels, comfortable bed, microwave, fridge, coffeemaker and an amazing private bathroom made for a great stay. Also, Fred was a great host, friendly and readily available. I really appreciated his flexibility in check-in and check-out times. I would definitely stay here again!
