The house felt like home. We were a couple of families and there was lots of room for everyone. We found everything we needed and enjoyed being there. Easy trips to and from the city.
Our family had a great stay. The house is huge with lots of room on multiple floors. The neighborhood is very nice and the hosts were very accomodating to our needs.
Wonderful house to stay in with lots of space, very comfortable. House is in a nice town as well. Make sure you find out where you can park on the street and make sure you get wifi access before the owners leave.
The house is huge and cozy, and can fit 13 people easily. The bus stop to Manhattan is less than 5 minutes away. The kitchen is big and well equipped.
Make sure before you book if you get the whole house or you should share it with the Au pair. When we stayed there we had to share it with her. As well, when we stayed in the house, the internet didn't work, and no solution was found for the whole stay.
