The apartement was very nice, with every facilities you may need. Perfect in case 2 families are traveling together. The transfer option from airport was very nice surprise and this made the ariival and late the departure very smooth- no worries, panic. To New York it takes by bus just 15-20 min, depends on traffic. All instructions how to find bus stop, where to come off etc is left on the apt by Shira and these are very precise and easy to follow. We spent a super 4 days at Shiras apt and in New York and the trip was perfect mostly thanks for this great management Shira offers. Thank you again, Shira! BR, Marek & Co
It was really perfect! amazing! Everything was great and the place is really awesome! For those who want to go to manhattan there are a lot of simple ways (bus, ferry, etc) and all of them take just few minutes... really easy!
Response from Shira:
Awesome apartment. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and very clean (even better than the pictures). The bus stop is right around the corner and only took about 10-15 minutes to get to Port Authority (NYC). Shira and Billy were wonderful and was there for any questions that we had.
Thank you Shira.
Good apartment in close proximity to city with very friendly and accomodating hosts.
Bus service to NY was great.
Response from Shira:
Thank you Ray!
It was a pleasure meeting you:)
GREAT, GREAT, GREAT !
superbe séjour. Appart très confortable, fonctionnel et coquet.
de grands et beaux espaces très agréables.
propriétaire juste à l'étage, ce qui est pratique en cas de besoin.
supermarchés et restos à proximité (ouverts tard le soir).
à 3mns à pied, prendre le mini bus devant la Poste (3 $ par personne le trajet), 10 mns après vous êtes à Times Square, arrêt Port Authority (bus terminal).
attention dernier mini bus au départ de Port Authority à 01h ou 02h du matin, à vérifier, ne vous faites pas piéger car les taxis new yorkais ne sont pas autorisés à quitter new york pour se rendre dans l'état du new jersey.
très jolie vue sur Manhattan durant le trajet, avant d'emprunter le Lincoln tunnel.
We spent one week in Shira's apartment and had a wonderful time!
The apartment was perfect - it looked exactly like the pictures and it was clean, warm and welcoming.
It took us a little longer than 15 minutes by bus to get to Manhattan in the morning but we didn't mind because we never had to wait more than 2 minutes for the bus.
We also arranged airport pick-up with Shira's friend, which worked perfectly and we appreciated the uncomplicated way to access keys and information about the location.
We had a really great time! :)
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.
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.
