Mr Adam house was wonderfully comfortable, in a convenient and safe part of New Jersey , with great neighbours and conveniences nearby. The house has A well Bed room with a tv , and places to sit and relax, many with a great view of surrounding And parks !
the hostess, was amazingly accommodating, and opened up his home to me, making me feel welcome and at home from the moment I arrived specially patrick mr Adam son (thank you very much patrick)
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in ne jersey for the short or long term.
What a sweet family ;)
Patch is very friendly, an excellent conversationalist who made me feel right at home. Everything was exactly what I expected. Parking was readily available in this quiet suburban neighborhood.
We had a nice stay at Patch’s place. We enjoyed our own entry and were able to use the separate shower whenever we needed/ wanted to.
The boiler/ radiator is pretty loud, which wasn’t a problem for my husband, and I used ear-plugs, which helped.
The family was nice and welcoming and we enjoyed meeting and talking with them!
We always had room in front of the house to park our car and it is also not far to the train station into the city.
Patrick was very welcoming. My kids and I slept so well in our quiet room. Thanks for a really great stay.
Pros: friendly family & price, clean-ish
Cons: basement lot with gas boiler which is extremely loud, if you can sleep at any noise level, this place is fine
Very comfortable stay, and the family was extremely hospitable. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Patch and his family again were wonderful. I enjoyed my own entry and the privacy. The neighbors were all friendly. I would definitely return.
