Please make sure that you check all my listings under my profile, and if you don't find the dates you're looking for, shoot me an inquiry anyways and I'll do what I can to help you, including recommending other great local hosts. I’m a proud SuperHost with over 500 positive reviews.

The Neighborhood:

Our neighborhood is residential, green and safe. Being very close to the Hudson River that separates it from Manhattan makes this a top location to enjoy Manhattan’s breathtaking skyline, day or night.

Our Place:

This is a huge light-filled 3 bedroom 2 .5 bathroom 1600 sq feet apartment in Union City, NJ. It is 15 min bus ride to Midtown near Times Square via the Lincoln Tunnel. As surprising as it may seem, this place is closer to Manhattan than other places located in Upper Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens or the Bronx.

Our apartment is a few blocks away the bus station which is serviced 24/7 to Port Authority Bus terminal in Manhattan, right next to Times Square (Read further down for more details about transportation).

We will provide you with detailed info/options on how to reach us from the various airports, info will include the option of our private shuttle (less expensive and more interesting than a taxi).

This spacious private room is comfortable and quiet - it has a queen bed, a closet with hangers and night tables. We provide bed linens and towels, but not maid service. If you want to squeeze a third person into the room, that is totally up to you - it will be crowded, and the third person will get an air mattress, but it can be done if you don't mind being tight.

You'll share a bath and a half with one other guest room, so maximum four people sharing the full bathroom and a powder room. No waiting for the bathroom!

You don't have to bring bed linens, towels or a hair dryer, we will provide you with fluffy clean towels and all you need to feel comfortable and at home!

The house is equipped with central heat and air conditioning. High speed wireless internet, and other convenient things like iron, city guides, maps, etc. are provided.

Feel free to message me if you need any further details.

About Transportation: I have received many questions from people who don't believe it possible to be outside of Manhattan and so close to it, yet it's true. Here are some facts about transportation:

1. Apartment is 5 minutes (5 blocks) from the 24/7 bus to Times Square and 1 block from the city bus (stops at 1am).
2. The bus is very frequent, I rarely wait for it more than 2 to 3 minutes. Most of the time you won't even wait at all. You will step to the bus stop and a bus will be there.
3. Buses are available 24/7 so you can catch them even when you spend the whole evening out.
4-The price of these express buses is $3 onboard, and $2.50 if you buy tickets at ticket window #23 at Port Authority Bus Terminal
5. You won't find these buses timetable or route on the internet, it's a private bus company that runs many lines in and out of Manhattan

Other info:
* We provide basic breakfast food items and you can prepare your own breakfast. Please carefully wash, dry and put away your dishes. Lots of restaurants, cafes and grocery stores near us in case you want to start your day with a more substantial meal.

* Minimum stay 3 nights

Many ask about the price and extra fees and how to pay. When you put in the dates and number of people you will get our total cost. There are no taxes or cleaning fees on top of this, but AirBnB adds their fee. It varies between 6-12% on top of our price.

All the payments are safely made with credit card to AirBnB when booking. They hold the money until the day you check in and will then transfer it to us.

Bookings with us are done with the "strict" cancellation policy and all cancellations should be done through AirBnB. This being said, if we manage to re-rent the place the nights you have canceled we can give a bigger refund to you than what the strict cancellation policy dictates. The earlier you cancel the bigger the chance that we will find other guests.

DEPOSIT is for keys and will be refunded by AirBnb once keys are returned.

To confirm that you have read the entire description, please include the secret word "rockefeller" in your inquiry to me.

Please note that 11am check out strictly enforced - we must be here to collect your keys to ensure prompt return of your deposit money.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • Stay with Maria was wonderful experience. Her place is clean and comfy, and has all the things that you will need. The location is convenient. There are several food markets and many restaurants nearby. The chicken bus made the commute very easy. It only take 15min, then you are in the heart of Manhattan. And Maria is a very warm host, she will give your very good suggestions. Next time we will stay with her again.

  • Great house, great room and great hosts. I'd highly recommend staying here on your next trip to NYC. We really enjoyed it and would stay here again and again. It's only a short 15minute bus ride into Times Square so a great spot to do all your sightseeing from.

  • You can always count on Maria to offer you a place that is clean, spiffy with playful design touches, and user friendly ! I loved discovering this unique 'neighborhood' ~ The view of Manhattan has got to be one of the hidden treasures of New York.

  • Very fast and easy access to the heart of New York. The room was exactly the same as shown in the pictures and was very clean and tidy! What's better, Maria was more than willing to help and communicate and she got back to us very fast every time we had questions. Highly recommend it to everyone!

  • La estancia en casa de Maria fue genial!
    Ningún problema, las habitaciones están muy limpias, el barrio es tranquilo y el transporte hacia Manhattan en bus es sencillo (autobuses cada 3 o 4 minutos 24h).
    Muy recomendable para una visita a NY.
    Volveremos seguro!
