I stayed for 6 weeks at the "launch pad" and had a wonderful experience. The room and kitchen area (which has a skylight overhead like the bathroom) were beautiful and well cared for. L was super nice and welcoming. The walk to the NJT train, which goes to Manhattan, is 8-10 minutes. The neighborhood has stores with grocery essentials and some delicious Peruvian food. Would highly recommend this rental.
Our guest curator stayed with L. for 6 nights and had nothing but wonderful things to say about her and her husband. He told us that they are lovely people who made him feel very welcome and showed him around Newark. L. also took an interest in the show he was curating, and it meant a lot to us to know that he would be staying with people who cared about his visit and his work. Thank you so much!
My stay at L.'s was a real pleasure.
The hosts (L. and her husband) are really nice and open for any requests - they supplied the place with all the things I needed, give me a lift to the airport etc.
The house is located very close to bus stops (buses to the city center, Newark Penn Station) and Broad Street Station (trains to NYC).
Great place to stay and close to the city. A bit spartan, but for a student on a budget, you wont find a better deal. I stayed here for a month and a half. Didnt have any issues with parking or safety. The landlord is very nice with Ruben taking care of everything you need almost instantly. Thanks Laura and Ruben.
It seems to me that both the description that (website hidden) and Alex's review (Dec 2012) are quite accurate. I am a city kid (from Brooklyn, and I lived in Newark for 5 years), so I was unaffected by the more urban attributes of the room, though I can easily imagine those that would be. That being said, I stayed for 1 week and thought that the place was a great deal, even though I was on a tight schedule and didn't get to take advantage of the living room/kitchen/etc..
