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. The room has an even better configuration now where both side of the bed are open and it's not against the wall. I need to update the photos but they will not be as good as the ones airbnb took!
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. Feel free to come find me, text or call if you need anything. Because of my work schedule, sometimes I don't see my guests, but I'll say hi if you're around!
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 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.
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!
Our first experience with AirBnB was awesome! Staying with Leigh was very comfortable and so convenient. Having a parking spot in Jersey City just a block from the PATH was amazing for our tourist NYC intentions! Leigh was great. She made us feel welcome and even invited us to mingle with her pals! For location and price, you cannot beat it. If we end up going to NYC again we will definitely stay with Leigh (if she isn't already booked)!
I had a great experience renting Leigh's extra bedroom. It's comfortable, with tv and cable, great internet, a private bathroom and privacy overall. Leigh was very communicative since the beginning. The location is great. I will definitely rent it again if I can on future trips. Thanks for everything Leigh.
Leigh was very helpful leading up to our arrival, we had simple questions about transport recommendations from the airport.
The room was as listed. Pillows were not the best, but we slept comfortably.
Her small dog is quite the barker but seemed to quiet down after a few hours of us being in her home. Cute little guy, big bark louder than he is.
Great price and easy to find.
It was a very nice stay at Leigh's house. It is a very private atmosphere due to the structure of the house. The own bath is great. Unfortunately, the towels are not the newest, we recommend bringing your own.
Besides this, the space is enough for a couple and the location in Jersey is nice to visit NY city. The path train station is steps away and will bring you directly to Manhattan.
Leigh is very friendly and helpful if needed.
A very nice Place to be for a Couple of days in nyc. The path station is just a 2 minutes Walk away and very easy to find. Unfortunatelly we have met leigh just a few minutes but she was very helpul with every question we had.
A nice, clean bedroom and bathroom for our three day visit to NYC. Lots of closet space. A safe, quiet neighborhood. Great location -- just a short walk to the Path station.
Leigh was a responsive host, and answered all of our emails quickly.
What a great find! Great clean place comfortable bed, hot shower and really only minutes from nyc. Leigh is lovely and so is Deigo, neighbourhood has everything you need shops bars restaurants. We had a great stay.
