Staten Island... the often forgotten borough of New York City. Just a 25 minute Ferry Ride to and from the City of New York! The Staten Island Ferry runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 Days a year (including all holidays) and is Free to get back and forth to NYC. You will also get to see unbelievable views of the New York City Skyline and Statue of Liberty while you are crossing over. Did I mention that the Ferry is Free??? Yes it is one of the best deals you will find in NYC!! Once you cross over to lower Manhattan you will find the Metro that will take you to anywhere you want in the City.
The place is located in the area known as Saint George and is about an 8 minute Metro Bus ride to the Ferry or if you are feeling up to it you could walk. The bus lets you off right on the corner. There are several buses that travel this route so the wait is minimal. I suggest you check out (website hidden) to find approx travel times and distances from our apartment which is located at the corner of Victory Blvd and Jersey St Staten Island, NY.
The room is located on the 2nd floor of our house and shares a bathroom with up to 6 other guests at any given time. It has beautiful hardwood floors and a full size bed that sleeps 2 comfortably. There is also a 25 " Flat Screen TV with basic channels... not that you will be spending much time in the room.
On the 1st floor you will find the Cafe... apart from the house with its own separate entrance. The Cafe is equipped with kitchen table, sink, dishes, pots & pans, full size stove, microwave, coffee maker and water cooler all at your disposal. There is a refridgerator as well.
The room is for low maintenance travelers. We are normally out and about. Guests that are happy staying with us are typically self-sufficient people who are able to troubleshoot and configure things such as TV, Internet, replace a light bulb, turn on heat and ac by themselves and unclog a toilet with a plunger as well as clean up after themselves. Of course things of a more serious nature will be handled promptly.
****Please note that this is a private room in our home where we live. If sharing the kitchen and bathroom facilities is not for you please consider other alternatives. This IS a safe, clean and economic alternative to pricey NYC and only 1/2 hour away.****

I feel very lucky that my first AirBnB experience was so amazing. The room was so comfortable and clean, and even with the other rooms being full, the bathroom was always tidied up and looked as if though no one had used it for the day. Even though some might say that the neighborhood isn't the best, the house is just steps away from the bus stop and I never felt unsafe, even when arriving back home late at night by myself. I didn't get to meet Jay, but communication with Jahaira was always very pleasant and quick. I would definitely stay here if I'm ever in NYC again.
I nostri Host sono stati gentilissimi. La camera é uguale alla foto. Tutto era molto pulito e ci siamo trovati benissimo. L'unica nota negativa é stata l'acqua fredda nel lavandino della cucina. É assolutamente un posto in cui ritornare.
The location of the house is quite good, the free ferry makes the whole trip more enjoyable and fun.
A great place to explore new York. The free ferry brings You directly to manhattan and is in walking distance or You couls easily take a bus. We would go again! Actually w'll go there tonight cause we could leave our bags there for a week!
We had a really nice stay at Jay's house. The room was very clean and exactly as described. Communication with Jay was easy and effective. The location in Staten Island is very convenient. We would definitely come back.
It is nice place close to Manhattan for a good price.
Jay and his wife are nice guys, everything was clean and ready for us.
We arrived sooner than expected and we agreed to leave the luggage in Jay´s appartement and left to the city.
We spent fantastic 5 days in NYC also due to this place.
