Welcome to my house, where you will feel completely safe and were you will receive worm and friendly atmosphere. Comfort, safety and cleanness is our main criteria. You will also have your own privacy and peace of mind.
House is located in a quiet and respectable place. From Manhattan it is about 20 minutes, and a bus fare is $3.00. All the transportation is very close and also we have supermarket and restaurants and bars nearby. We are also located very close to Newport mall and all the other amenities in our area.
We also can offer you a transportation from airports bus terminal and other ports in tri-state area,(of course this service will be extra)
wonderful room, kind owner, clean environment, friendly roomate.
The living room is big and comfortable. It is a surprise that there is a Christmas tree in the living room!
Good experience in this house.
Mari is easy to communicate with and allowed flexible arrival time. Room and apartment were in fair condition. It was a little cold since the windows wasn't 100% sealed (we were here in December) and the heating made weird noises during the night. There is a huge living room with TV access, a nice kitchen and two bathrooms for the whole apartment. Location is close to super market (Food Basics) and a bus station with frequent runs to Manhattan (Community Lines: 24/7, no schedule but about every ten minutes for $3 per ride), however, we often faced terrible traffic through Lincoln tunnel which may take up to an hour (both ways).
It is evident that the place has worn down since the photos were taken. My only complaint is that the shower head was weak and has a terrible spread.
There is great internet and cable TV available. There is also a drum that I find questionable, however relieved that no one used it during my stay.
The area is intimidating at first, especially at night but you'll quickly realise that there aren't going to be mugglers waiting to get you.
Fantastic place to stay if you're just there for sleep or late night settlement. Never saw Mari else except moments prior to leaving.
The room was correct (but, we could not open the store, so couldn't see the light). We never saw Mari (or any other person of her family). We only saw the other roomates (who were really friendly). Some kitchen "tools" are missing : sieve, other plates (there is only one !), other glasses (only 3, whereas the basement can accept 9 persons), washer and drier not repared after 3 months of being broken... Our stay was pleasant because we only came back to sleep (and took out some food) but if you want to actually live here, I don't recommend it.
Ne surtout pas y aller!!! Cette chambre est horrible!! Elle est dans un appartement partagé et d'ailleurs qu'il n'est pas réellement possible de fermer étant donné qu'il y a de nombreuses autres chambres à louer. A notre arrivée il y avait une odeur atroce dans la chambre, elle était dans le noir et autre chose, ne vous attendez pas à avoir le lit fait comme sur la photo!! C'est trop demander alors du coup vous avez les draps et couvertures posés sur le matelas... On a pris l'initiative de changer de chambre car sinon impossible de dormir vu l'odeur horrible. Mari ne s'en ai rendue compte que juste avant notre 3ème nuit.... elle est totalement inexistence, ne vous accueille pas et ne risque donc pas de prendre en face à face les remarques négatives et la colère des locataires! L'appartement n'est pas entretenu : cheveux dans la salle de bain partout, sol crasseux, rouille et saleté, cuisine ou je n'ai même pas osé prendre un verre pour boire... Enfin un désastre. Il n'y avait pas non plus d'eau chaude dans l'une des douches des 2 salle de bains (crasseuses) disponibles.
De plus niveau sécurité ce n'est pas non plus du luxe... vous ne pouvez fermer que votre chambre en résumé et un bon coup d'épaule dans la porte et vos bagages disparaissent!!
Au niveau du lieu, je pense que Mari n'a pas la notion du temps car à 20 min de Time Square... fois 2 et même 3!!
C'est juste honteux qu'une telle chambre soit proposé à la location! Toutes les chambres de ce logement ne servent qu'à rapporter facilement de l'argent à sa propriétaire!
Un conseil pour tout ceux qui souhaitent louer une chambre dans les environs de New-York : ne faites pas mon erreur, mettez un peu plus cher et allez un peu plus dans le centre car de toute manière avec un billet de bus a 3$ par aller et par personne le calcul est vite fait!
Autre chose : il y a bien une machine à laver et un sèche-linge par contre impossible à mettre en marche. D'ailleurs vous aurez la joie de découvrir une pile énorme de linge sale posé n'importe comment sur les machines!
En résumé : Une HONTE!!!
Really nice place. spacious, cozy and pretty clean. Not really what we expect from an airbnb experience. The entire basement is for host. We don't even seen Mari. Only her daughter by chance.
The basement is equiped with 4 bedrooms, one living room and one kitchen and two bathrooms (which is nice).
The kitchen is not equiped. Only two plates, one cup and some forks and knives. Hopefully, we were alone at this time in the basement.
It's in the NJ. That's mean, it's a little bit complicated to understand how to go to NY. But It's fast. Only 20 min to go to time square
In conclusion, it's a nice place. I will recommend it. But it's more like a luxuary small Hostel.
I hope my comment will help.
I stayed for a week in Mari house. Her house has a very convenient location to visit New York City and other nearby attractions . All my stay I felt right at home despite the fact that I had never seen her and her family!
A really nice place for visiting New York City. Buses from the nearby bus stop are running every few minutes, the location is quiet and safe, the room is clean and comfortable, and the host is responsive.
This was a great deal. The neighborhood was cool, the house was very clean, and had a great big open living room too. Our hostess was very nice and helped us find our way around the area. Would definitely recommend.
It was great place to stay.20 minutes away from Times square. Maria is super nice. 100% recommendation!
