About this listing
Enjoy your stay in the tri-state area at my townhouse! Queen size bed in bedroom plus a private bathroom, and access to the backyard. Other amenities are wifi, cable tv, and washer / dryer. You can use the kitchen as well if you would like to cook.
The room I'm renting is conveniently located on the first floor of my townhouse. It has a queen size bed, large closet, cable tv, wifi, and ceiling fan. Right next to the room is your private bathroom. There is also a door to the back yard so you can enjoy some outdoor space. Sorry my pictures aren't great. Airbnb can't come by to take pictures of my new layout!
2 adults, or 2 adults with 1 or 2 small children can comfortably fit in the room.
My roommate and I have bedrooms and a bathroom on the third floor, so you will have plenty of privacy.
You will have your own private bedroom and bathroom, plus access to the backyard. Other amenities are wifi, cable tv, and washer / dryer. Sheets and towels included. Please bring your own toiletries. I have a mini fridge, microwave, water, and utensils set up on the first floor, but feel free to use the second floor kitchen if you need anything else, want to cook, or need more fridge space than the mini fridge can handle.
Interaction with Guests
I keep a door at the top of the stairs to the second floor shut a lot. I mainly do this because when my guests come in, my dog Diego likes to run down the stairs barking :) He doesn't bite. I currently work from home, so feel free to come find m. Many guests find texting or calling easiest. Because of people's schedules and my living space being upstairs, I don't always see my guests. If we are both around, or your door is open, I'll say hi!
Downtown Jersey City has great restaurants, bars, and shops all within walking distance. There are parks nearby as well. If you walk 10 minutes to the waterfront you will get spectacular views of Manhattan. A large shopping mall and grocery store are also a couple blocks away. I have lived here over 10 years and feel very safe.
Other local attractions include Hoboken, the birthplace of Frank Sinatra and the Cake Boss, Liberty Science Center, and Liberty State Park. Liberty State Park has ferry service to the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and Manhattan, not to mention great views. And of course, you are very close to Manhattan.
My townhouse is 3 blocks to the Grove Street PATH station, then 7 min to World Trade Center, 10 min to Greenwich Village, and 20 min to 33rd street in Manhattan. The PATH runs 24 hours a day and is $2.75 a ride. I am also a 20 minute cab ride to Newark Airport which costs around $25 if you use a local taxi company. I have services I usually use to save money.
JFK and Laguardia are longer journeys to my house than Newark airport. You have to travel through Queens and Manhattan to get to NJ which is about 1 hour & 30 minutes.
Other Things to Note
Please bring your own soap, shampoo, toothpaste. If you could take out the trash in your room and bathroom at the end of your stay that would be great. I have a large black trash can next to the front door at the chain link fence.
No Smoking Inside. Using backyard is ok. No drugs, parties, drama, or pets. No unauthorized additional overnight guests. Please bring your own soap, shampoo, toothpaste. If you could take out your trash at the end of your stay that would be great. I have a large black trash can next to the front door at the chain link fence.
I require a deposit of $150.00 in case there is damage or theft in my house. I have been lucky and never had a problem, but it makes me feel more secure. The deposit is held electronically via Airbnb.
If there's anything you need during your stay please let me know. I will do my best to help!
