"I find it fascinating that most people plan their vacations with better care than they do their lives. Perhaps that is because escape is easier than change." -- Jim Rohn
Ruim en schoon appartement met alles erop en eraan. De rust van Union City was welkom na het drukke NY, vooral 's nachts. NY was makkelijk en snel te bereiken 24/7 met pendelbussen, die altijd klaar stonden op 5 minuten loopafstand van het appartement. Shira voorzag ons van alle benodigde informatie voor ons vertrek over bereikbaarheid en vervoer van en naar vliegveld en stad. Kortom, PRIMA locatie.
Thank you for your great hospitalaty and lovely apartment! We will shorly choise you again if we come to NYC! Best regards Sara
Response from Shira:
Hospedagem muito boa, proprietarios atenciosos e prestativos, realmente proximo de tudo. Porem eu fiquei com carro alugado por todo periodo de minha estadia com custo adicional de $20,00 que me serviu.
Casa preciosa, transporte cercano y rapido a manhatan.
L’appartement est vraiment …………..gorgeous !
Plus grand que sur les photos, bien équipé, dans un quartier très calme, avec des commerces à proximité, ainsi que des restaurants abordables comme le « noches de Colombia » ou l’accueil et la nourriture sont excellent.
Les navettes qui nous déposent au cœur de Times Square sont très fréquentes, nous n’avons jamais attendu et le trajet est rapide, idem pour le retour.
Notre séjour a été mémorable et si nous avons l’occasion de refaire ce voyage nous retournons à cette adresse les yeux fermés !!!
The apartment is really .............. gorgeous!
Larger than the pictures, well equipped, in a quiet neighborhood, with shops nearby, as well as affordable restaurants as "noches de Colombia" where hospitality and food are excellent.
The shuttles who drop us in the heart of Times Square are very common, we never wait and the ride is fast, same for the return.
Our stay was memorable and if we have the opportunity to repeat this trip we’ll return to this address if possible !
thank you Shira
Un apartamento precioso (igual como el que muestran las fotos), un barrio muy tranquilo con todo lo que uno puede esperar (supermercados, tiendas, farmacias, restaurantes) y muy bien conectado con NYC (existen muchos autobuses que van a la ciudad durante todo el día).
Shira es una excelente anfitrión que informa de todo lo necesario para tener una estancia agradable.
Si volvemos a NYC, nuestra primera opción será el apartamento de Shira.
A beautiful apartment (exactly like the photos), a quiet neighborhood with all that one can expect (supermarkets, shops, pharmacies, restaurants) and very well connected to NYC (many buses going to the city 24h).
Shira is an excellent host who tells you everything you need to have a pleasant stay.
If we went to NYC, our first choice is Shira's apartment.
The apartment was a great space - bigger than the pictures show. Very comfortable beds, plenty of room for 4 people - hard to come by so close to the city. Very convenient location for transport to Manhattan - $3 white bus got us to Times Square in less than 10 minutes!
Shira was a good host - good instructions left for her guests! Very fast responses to any queries we had which was terrific. Off street parking was a bonus.
Would recommend staying here.
We had a great time in Union City! We found Shiras apartment just as she promised - enough room for four people, clean und very comfortable with wonderful king-size beds. Manhattan was very busy in these days (especially at the weekend), so we managed the daily traffic with the several busses in front of post office. Union City was very familiar, with supermarkets with everything necessary for breakfast. Our reference for a comfortable, tasty and cheap supper is Marias Restaurant vis-à-vis of the post office. Five days in the city could have been longer – thanks to Shira and Bill for all hostpitality.
Although we spend all our time in NYC, it's a great location, shuttle bus is very easy, takes about 15 min.
Apartment is large and has all the facilities you need.
We did not met Shira, however, she answers very fast to our questions and provides all the necessary information proactively.
We stayed with Shira and Billy for 6 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The place is very spacious, impeccably clean, modern with all the amenities one would need. Shira was readily available to respond, but frankly, there was nothing missing from the apartment that we needed. The location is great, less than 5 minutes walk to the shuttle bus station which took us to the heart of Manhattan for $3, what a bargain! We did not need to use our car once. Shira provided us with excellent tips relative to shopping, restaurants, etc.
We highly recommend this place and would definitely stay with Shira and Billy next time we are in New York.
Response from Shira:
Thank you for your lovely review!
Shira is a close personal friend and I vouch for her cleanliness, reliability and easy manner to deal with. I have no hesitations in recommending either staying at her place or having her stay at yours.
When I first met Shira, we connected instantly. Same goes for her husband Billy. I was so taken a back because personally, I usually don't click with people like that(like that, meaning on that level). I have to honestly say, I haven't met someone as genuinely nice, real and with such a positive and warm energy like her and Billy in I don't know how many years. Shira is someone who always tries to help if she can. She's someone you can count on which I'm sure is really important to most people but again, to me personally, it's been very rare to find. I'm grateful to have her in my life. I've read some of the other references just now they took the words right out of my mouth! I keep thinking, I wanted to write the SAME THING, and in some cases, I'm repeating what they said but it's only because everything they've written, is totally accurate on who she is.
I am one of Shira's clients at her skincare business, but I quickly began to view her as more of a friend than a business acquaintance. She is very professional and accommodating, while at the same time providing a personal touch to make your experience the best it can be. I know she is very excited about renting this room on airbnb and I know she will do her utmost to provide the best service possible to whomever chooses to stay with her! Shira is a trustworthy person with excellent people skills. I am sure she will make a wonderful host!!!
I've known Shira for about 25 years now. We grow up together.
Shira is a very happy and charming person.
She loves people and love to help in any way she can.
Shira always was a person that well connected to local businesses and services so
She can easy guide you where to go and where not.
You don’t need more than 2 min to fell in love.
I’m strongly recommending shira as a host.
All the best
Shira is one of my great cousins, I've known her since I was born, and since then she has always been there for me. When I was a kid, she was the one who tried to teach me how to do a headstand and a handstand... `)
Even though, I don't leave close by, I can always count on Shira's trust, on her good advises and on her honest feedback. She is one of a few people that I really can count on.
Shira always takes a good care of her friends and family. Due to Shira and her family (Billy and Nevo) my parents had a great time when they traveled to NYC last year. Shira took such a great care of them, that they are still talking about the amazing trip they had.
When I was asked to a write a reference to Shira I didn’t know where to start as there are so many and only wonderful things I can truly say about her and hers.
I fell in love with Shira, Billy (husband) and little Nevo (son) as individuals, couple and family from the first time we met thru mutual friends, about 2 years ago.
Ever since, her warm house was always open for us and we could never say NO to a great Friday nite dinner & drinks made by the amazing couple, and the fun company of little Nevo.
They are role models to me and I feel blessed to have them in my life.
I can go on and on, but I’d like to leave some room for others to share as well.
I've known Shira and Billy for about 3 years now. We met at a birthday party of a mutual friend and instantly "hit it off". Shira is super friendly, has great energy, generous and always very positive. Shira is very accommodating and a great host when she has her friends over for dinner, her house is always clean and tastefully decorated. I'm sure you'll love staying at her newly renovated 2BR apartment which is very close to Manhattan - 5-10 min by car or bus!
She lives upstairs and I'm sure she will be happy to answer any question, give recommendation etc...
Shira is the hostess with the most-est! :) Always going out of her way to make sure you are feeling comfortable and at ease! willing to make late night phone calls to assist people in need of assistance. Truly selfless! one of the last few people on the planet who are nice for nothing.
