The room and the rest of the house were great, clean, were as advertised. I did a four week rotation at Staten Island university hospital. The house is within walking distance of the bus line that takes you within one block of the hospital, even for the times I had to be in the hospital 5:00 am. Marianne always made sure I had what I needed to have a comfortable stay. She even made sure that I was prepared for snow storms. The neighborhood is a safe, residential area and a nearby train and ferry takes you to Manhattan. There are also grocery stores and restaurants within walking distance.
Marianne is such a wonderful host! It was the first time using Airbnb but she taught me how to use it very kindly, which was really helpful. The room was so neat and decorated with beautiful things.
When I went to NYC, I took a ferry which passed by Statue of Liberty. It was also good experience. I would like to go to this wonderful house again. Thanks Marianne.
Marianne was very patient though I arrived late. Her home is very nice and cheerfully decorated for the holidays. The room felt like a real room that is apart of the home, it was warmly decorated and very comfortable and clean.
Very welcoming home in a nice quiet neighborhood. Marianne was easy to talk with and provided loads of Staten Island information. She also knows Brooklyn. Access to Manhattan by Express Bus or local bus then ferry is only 5 minutes away. Train to ferry is 10. All are safe walks. Very nice, convenient place to stay.
Wonderful lady to stay with. Very friendly homey atmosphere. I would recommend her. The house is close to public transportation but still feels relaxing at the end of the day.
We had a short stay and Marianne and her family were very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely return - the location is very convenient and good value for money.
Marianne was a gracious and friendly host. The house was in a safe and convenient neighborhood, and our room was the perfect size for a short visit to see family and friends in Staten Island and Manhattan.

I am real estate agent for Gillani Homes in Staten Island. I enjoy traveling to Mexico, Florida and Canada. My favorite shows include Suits, CSI Miami, Bar Rescue, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians. I consider my style of AirBnB hosting generous and accommodating but I expect everyone to follow house rules and keep their areas clean and neat.
