The space

Enjoy this single bedroom apartment with private entry, located on the first floor of our house in a safe neighborhood. The apartment has its own kitchen and private bathroom, just steps from 24 hour bus-service to & from NYC.

Enjoy this colorful, quiet, private unit within our house. You'll rest comfortably in a queen size bed for 2 people, with room to relax in the living area with satellite TV on a futon that converts to a twin bed for 2 people. In addition, you'll have your own bathroom with a shower and your own kitchen/dining area with a small refrigerator, microwave and oven. When the weather's warm, enjoy a meal or drink on the patio in our yard. Need wi-fi access? We've got that too and free parking if you need it!

As many of our international guests have asked, yes, we do provide towels and sheets for you.

You'll be staying just 1/2 a block from stunning views of the NYC skyline, and 1 block from a bus stop for getting to and from the Times Square area of Manhattan in 15 minutes (we're 2 miles from the Lincoln Tunnel) for only a $3 or $3.50 bus fare (there are 2 competing bus options). Buses run frequently, even late at night, so you needn't worry about schedules, due to our proximity to midtown.

The apartment is less than a 5 minute walk to a small, well-stocked supermarket and a number of restaurants. You can see more details in the Guidebook link on this listing.

We can't wait to have you join us and have a groovy NYC adventure!

Guest access

Guests have private access to the entire apartment - your own bathroom, kitchen, bedroom and living area.

Interaction with guests

As our guests stay in a private apartment within our house, it is really up to our guests how much they wish to interact with us. We live directly upstairs from the apartment and try to stop in and visit our guests once or twice during their visit, to ensure that all is going well and to answer any questions. Our guests are invited to get in touch with us at any time during their visit.

We are always around when we have guests visiting.

My daughter and I had a lovely stay at Mark and Lori's place for her 16th birthday trip to NYC. The guide book provided everything we needed to know to make getting to/from the airport and to/from the city easy. The groovy room was cozy and just as described in the listing.

Mark & Lori's Groovy apartment was exactly as described. Check in was easy and Mark provided perfect instructions in getting to the apartment. It is in a convenient location to use the bus to the city as well as exploring the little gems in the area like Cuomo & Sons deli, Sojo Spa & Dulce de Leche bakery. Mark was great to chat with and we enjoyed our short visit with him. This is the perfect spot of you want to enjoy the sites of the city then escape to peaceful relaxation!

We had a great stay at Mark and Lori's. The apartment was beautiful and had all necessary items that one could use.. clean sheets, towels, the kitchen had all utensils, they even had instant coffee which made us very happy. Just take a bus from port authority and it drops you outside the house.. We could not have asked for anything better than this. Thank you Mark and Lori for making our first experience with Airbnb such a pleasant one..

This was the perfect choice for my stay in New Jersey. The location was ideal and made getting into the city quick and easy. The neighborhood felt like an extension of the city, while being way from the hustle and bustle. Just down the block is a beautiful view of the New York City skyline. Mark & Lori were attentive, welcoming, gracious hosts. They were always available if I needed anything, and it was clear they put a lot of thought into making the space comfortable. The visitor's guide they provided was detailed and helpful. I highly recommend this as your home away from home near the city!
