Nadine was fantastic and met us on arrival. She was very welcoming and had a printed list of helpful information. The house is very comfortable and is really convenient with busses running regularly outside. Only USD 3 or so for a 30 mins ride into Port Authority Bus Station. The only small downside is that the busses passing the house are a little noisy, but you quickly block it out and it wan't an issue for us). Well equipped and clean, highly recommended.
Lovely apartment, good sizes double bedrooms, lovely kitchen and bathroom. Nice little touches including some toiletries and kitchen supplies being left for us as well as plenty of towels.
We really enjoyed our stay, the buses to Manhattan are frequent, reliable and run until late night. Not the quickest journey however. We were in New Jersey for a wedding so was perfect for us as meant we could have some days in the city to see all the sights and be in New Jersey for the wedding!
Nadine was super nice that she welcomed us at the apartment even we had arrived early. She made us feel like home that she walked through the whole apartment with all of us and prepared an extra bed for the two guys in the group so that they didn't need to share bed! So thoughtful of her! She also prepared a brochure containing all the information you need about the neighbourhood, the transportation and the details about the apartment. The apartment itself was very spacious and looks exactly like the pictures. There're everything you need in the kitchen and clean towels in the bathroom. Also, all bedrooms have individual closets, and washing machine and dryer were available for longer period of stay too! The neighbourhood was very convenient with shops and restaurants in walking distance while buses to Manhattan were just a block away! Even traffic through the Lincoln Tunnel was always bad, it only took us around half an hour to 42rd Street, Port Authority Station. Totally would recommend to a group or a family!!! :)
What should I say? I agree with all the reviews: Nadine is a perfect host, the house beautiful and clean, well equipped. Very good location, close to NJ but with better air even if a little bit noisy because of the busses running near by.
We had a perfect stay of one week at Nadine's place. The communication prior to our arrival was clear and with short response time and the receipt was very friendly! Nadine showed us around in the beautiful 3-bedroom apartment which is completely equipped with all you need, including dishwasher, washing machine, breakfast for the next (bread, eggs, peanut butter) and basic ingredients you need for cooking. All NYC buses stop around the corner and there are plenty grocery stores within a few blocks. It takes 20-40 min to go to Port Authority terminal so for us this was the ideal place to stay. Each or our 2 teenage daughters had their own bedroom with TV & privacy, to get some rest after the busy NY days). We forgot some clothes in a wardrobe last day and had insufficient time to go and pick it up. Nadine was so kind to come over to NYC to bring it to us herself. We do hope to have the opportunity to come back Nadine and recommend your place to any family ! Thanks.
Nadine gave us a tour of her beautiful apartment when we arrived so we knew where everything was. She has essential food for us in the kitchen if we wanted to use it, fresh towels in the bathroom and everything was neat and clean. She also had useful info on transportation and the surrounding area. She was always available if we had questions. The neighborhood was nice. The bus to downtown NYC stops just around the corner so there is a bit of traffic noise but that didn't bother me. There are a couple small shops a block or so away.
Just one word to start: amazing. This is to describe Nadine and also her appartment. Our stay was just perfect at her place and so easy to organise thanks to all her help before we arrive (emails) and during our stay. At the end she worked a to find us a taxi to go back to the bus station in Manhattan. It was not an easy task for her because we were 5 and with à lot of suitcases.. So she had to find a "van taxi"! Her place is so nice, we felt that we were at Home there.. It is totally representative of the photos. You will find all that you need at a walking distance from her place.. Restaurants, little pharmacy, little grocery store.
Nadine is a perfect host. We couldnt have hope for a better stay. Thank you again Nadine.

About the Host, Nadine
I'm a native New Yorker from Manhattan and a six year resident of New Jersey. I wish I'd discovered this area years ago. We have the best of both worlds-- quiet suburban living with the city just 20 minutes away.
I've worked in the hospitality industry for over 20 years and enjoy meeting new people. AirBnB provides me with an unending stream of wonderful families to host.
