Other Things to Note
This is a 4 bedroom apartment, some or all bedrooms might be occupied. Expect to share a kitchen and bathroom.
Mari was a great host and we had no issues whatsoever. We were very grateful for the air-conditioning unit as it was very warm when we were there in August. We had some minor issues in using the lock to get in, but these problems were due to our errors and were soon resolved after we sought assistance. Would use again!
Did not see Mari but her daughter gave me instructions on how to enter the room, helped me to park my car, set up the A/C...
Mari's house is really great and comfortable for those who want to stay near the Manhattan. Everything was great, room was clean and everything was same like on photos. There are lot of shops around the area like small corner shops where you can buy any basic food and water. Then there is big supermarket called Basic Food which is only 5-7 mins walk distance from house. The trasnfer to Manhattan is very easy and quite fast (no peak hours - 20mins). You can go by NJ Transit BUS 125 or you can get on any Minibus GATE 51 which is cheaper and faster. The price is 3$ for one way. The place is also very safe and there is no noise from road or neighborhood. Just one thing was quite annoying - HOT nights. There is no A/C (or I didn't notice it) but you can use fan which is almost as A/C. Anyway - you can't get better accomodation for those money in this area which is absolutely near the Manhattan. Thank you for great staying here. Daniel
The Location is not in the near of the time square, you have to walk 5 Minuten to the Bus stop, the Bus needs around 30 Minutes to Manhattan. It is not easy to transport big luggage in the minibus so i would recomment a cab Or uber for this. The room is very Small. The whole location is kind of a hostel and very dirty. It looks totally different to the pictures. You cant use the kitchen properly because lot of the equipment is missing. The dishwasher is broken and there is no soap for cleaning the dishes. Not even forks are provided. There were many animals. We had to deal with a dead mouse and some other spiders in the bath tub. There is no air conditioning and it was 85°F, 30°C in the room. Mari brought us a fan after we asked for one. We havent seen Mari during our stay. WE WOULD NEVER STAY THERE AGAIN
It was very nice to stay in the apartment of Maria. The room is good for two people and there is no problem to reach Manhatten because there is a bus driving every 5 minutes. We would stay there any time again.
First impressions of Mari's didn't live up to what we had hoped for. The room was tired, and did not reflect the cleanliness shown in the pictures. Bedding did not appear clean (we've even come away with bites which cannot be attributed to Mosquitos!) and there were marks on the walls, old plasters etc... Everything was tired. We are not super concerned with cleanliness but one feels somewhat mislead when the description states how the hosts pride themselves on cleanliness. We also found large bugs in kettle and sink. The main other issue was the lack of air con despite it being in the details. This is a considerable issue when evening temperatures are mid 30s. We tried contacting Mari on a couple of occasions to no avail... The area was fine, yet we could not help but feel uneasy with the main door being unlocked! The bus 125 into New York was poor, we would suggest using the mini buses that come frequently and are cheaper. A considerable plus of the accommodation was the large living area and the TV, for sport and film watching.
If you want privacy and safety in a clean, generous apartment, this is the place to stay. Although I never met Mari in person, her daughter was very nice showing us around the apartment, in spite of the late arrival. I would recommend the place, if you don't have a problem with a longer ride to the center (which is not included in the MTA 7-day-pass, so pay extra for every ride) and with a not fully equipped kitchen (there was one fork for 8 people). In total: nice place!
