About this listing
Ceramic tile floors throughout keep the entire guest apartment dust- and allergen-free.
Welcome to our guest apartment! This extremely clean, comfortable apartment is private and quiet. It can accommodate anywhere from a single adult to a small family.
We are located in Bloomfield, NJ just one block from shops, restaurants, a world-famous bakery, a post office and the NYC bus (only a 30-minute ride to Times Square, NYC!). Three NJ Transit train stations are also located nearby.
We are a twenty minute drive to the Meadowlands stadium.
The guest apartment is part of our 2-story house but has its own entrance and parking. Access to laundry facilities and unlimited cable and wi fi are included with your stay.
The decor is relaxed and fun, as well as (we hope) aesthetically pleasing, featuring contemporary Crate & Barrel furnishings and wall art by Tom Everhart, "the Snoopy guy". (Kids who have visited LOVE the Snoopy art ... and actually, so do their parents.)
This apartment features the world's most comfortable queen-sized bed, as well as a comfy couch in a separate room. In the kitchen, all stainless steel appliances, a spruce-green granite countertop and a honey-onyx backsplash make it a pleasure to cook in, or just relax with a cup of tea.
This apartment is cool in summer and warm in winter. In the bathroom, there's even an individually-controlled heating unit, in addition to the wall fixture, for those who shiver after showers! There are two desks in the apartment, for the productivity-minded. And for allergy-sufferers, all of the flooring is ceramic tile, to keep dust and allergens to a minimum. (Only a couple of plush scatter rugs, like in the bedroom, have been provided for your comfort.)
(NOTE:) There are 2 cats and 2 friendly dogs on the premises.
We hope you will enjoy your stay!
This is a very nice, quiet neighborhood. If you are looking to party this isn't the place for you. We ask that any guests you may invite over leave by 11pm unless prior approval is given from us.
Guests are asked to wash any dishes they have used, as well as the coffeepot, etc., and to leave premises as they were upon arrival. Towels and linens will be laundered by the hosts. We will allow well behaved dogs.
Three or four can lounge or watch television in the living room. Cable service is included with your stay.
I needed a place to stay for 9 days in the NYC area and since I have been thinking about relocating there and was curious about the NJ suburbs and commuting to the city, Laura's place was perfect. The DeCamp busses to NYC are fast and only a block from the house. The apartment is meticulously arranged, big kitchen, well supplied, comfortable living room, very cushy bed in bedroom. The neighborhood is safe and even when I went running in the dark, I felt safe.
There are restaurants within walking distance, although the grocery store is probably a hike for people who don't walk a lot. I enjoyed it and walked to Montclair several times as well.
Laura and Steph are amazingly nice landlords, they went out of their way to make sure I was happy. Steph greeted me when I arrived and made sure I settled in ok.
If you want to visit NYC and not deal with crowds and noise at night, this is the place for you!
Nice place. A bit far from the city but when you know how to get there, it gets better.
Do you need a relaxed stay? We can recommend you the guest apartment of Laura and Stephanie in Bloomfield NJ. When you arrive, you feel that you are welcome.
The guest apartment offered us all we wanted. A hall, bathroom, kitchen with all you need to prepare a good meal or to make a pot of coffee, the bedroom with a comfortable bed and a living room with a good sofa and big screen HD television.
Returning from a day New York, then its time to relax, using the sofa and watching TV or using the free Wi-Fi to make plans for the next day. Tired? Time to use the comfortable bed. The next day, waking up relaxed, we could say to ourselves: New York here we come again.
We want both of you thank you for your hospitality.

My in-laws stayed here in July. Laura and Stephanie made sure they had a comfortable, relaxing visit. The kitchen is filled with all sorts of great amenities (Le Creuset pans!). The apartment is spotless and well-furnished. Thanks for a great stay.
The place was awesome, even the more than we expected. It was a super nice 1 bedroom apartment in the basement. Comfortable double bed, living room, huge kitchen and nice bathroom. When outside was super hot, there was comfortable to be in.
The hosts Laura and Steph are super nice. Laura even picked us from the Walnut street station, beacause we came by train. They were super helpful and communication works perfectly with them. If you need anything, they were available. Still they respect your own privacy. They also booked us in very short notice. There can't be better hosts than Laura and Steph.
Area was very peaceful. We didn't have no car, so we pretty much walk to everywhere. It was a 5 min walk to the Board St where was a lot of restaurants and some shops as well. It was 20 minutes walk to Bay Street train station if you want to go to NY (by train it was around 40 minutes travel to Penn Station)
Overall I can strongly recommend the place and you don't even have to own a car to live there. Five Stars.
Again having been in Montclair/Bloomfield, we enjoyed this place a lot. With direct bus connection into NY downtown its very comfi. With loveley surrounding and just 15 walk into Montclair, you have lots of urban style little shops and cafes and restaurants to choose from.
Thanks for the kind hospitality by Laura.
