Wir können die Wohnung in Jersey nur empfehlen! Susan und Ivan machen es einem wirklich einfach mit dem Wohlfühlen. Angefangen von der netten Begrüßung am Abend unserer Anreise, dem zusammengestellten Ordner mit vielen Tipps und Empfehlungen zum Nachlesen, kleine Snacks und wirklich lieb für den Start der mit Kleinigkeiten gefüllte Kühlschrank. Außerdem ist die Wohnung so gemütlich eingerichtet, genau wie auf den Bildern, und bietet alles was man braucht um sich nach einem langen Tag "zu Hause" zu fühlen. Im Dezember war der Kamin unser Lieblingsplatz.
Jersey City ist eine schöne Abwechslung zu Manhatten. Restaurants, Bars,Supermarkt und die PATH Station ist alles in der Nähe und gut (auch zu Fuß) zu erreichen. Zur PATH Station läuft man 20min und mit der U-Bahn nach Manhatten/WTC sind es 6min Fahrzeit. Wir haben uns in Jersey City sicher gefühlt, auch abends wenn wir von der PATH zur Wohnung gelaufen sind um uns all die tollen Weihnachtsdekorationen an den Häusern anzusehen.
Es war unsere erste Reise nach NY/NJ und es war ein wirklich toller Urlaub. Die Weihnachtszeit hat ihren ganz besonderen Zauber, überall die tollen Weihnachtslichter, die Weihnachtsbäume, einige "Winter Village" (in Deutschland bekannt als Weihnachtsmarkt), der Centralpark und seine Straßenkünstler/Musiker...
Wir können definitiv sagen : We Love NY und es wird nicht das letzte Mal gewesen sein. =)
Susan and Ivan welcomed us warmly. They were in the middle of a dinner party when we arrived and immediately introduced us to the guests (their neighbours), inviting us to join them for a drink once we'd settled in. We were too tired to accept but appreciated the generous and inclusive invitation, which we believe is indicative of their nature's overall. There is a separate external entrance to the garden apartment and while our hosts were respectful of our privacy we found them extremely approachable. They explained the apartment, transport and the neighbourhood thoroughly both verbally and in print in a detailed information folder. The apartment itself is just as the pictures show, beautifully designed and decorated with a homey, arty feel to it. Added to the basic 'starter kit' of milk, juice, bread coffee and teas, we found a small welcome basket of nuts and chocolate! We felt safe walking around the neighbourhood and in New Jersey city, while buses and trains were nearby for easy access to New York city. Being able to use their washing machine in the top apartment was very helpful for these two weary travellers! We highly recommend this accommodation.
Susan und Ivan sind sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeber. Es war unsere erste Erfahrung mit Air BnB, dementsprechend aufgeregt waren wir.
Wir sind sehr positiv beieindruckt.
Beide haben sich unglaublich Mühe gegeben das Appartment gemütlich zu gestallten. Wir haben uns sofort wohl gefühlt!
Der Kamin war zu dieser Jahreszeit einfach Gold wert!
Einfach nur positiv. :)
Wir werden allen empfehlen bei Susan und Ivan zu wohnen wenn ein NY/NJ Trip ansteht.
susan et yvan ont été des hôtes charmants, toujours disponibles et à l'écoute de nos demandes
l'appartement est très cocooning et très propre, on s'y sent bien
vous êtes à 15min de marche du train qui vous mènera à new York
c'est une bonne adresse à retenir
Die Wohnung von Susan und Ivan ist sehr zu empfehlen! Es sieht alles original so aus wie auf den Bildern und nach einem eindrucksvollen Tag in Manhattan kann man sich in der Wohnung gut entspannen und Kraft für den nächsten Tag tanken.
Susan und Ivan sind absolut freundlich, zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit!
Um nach Manhattan zu kommen braucht man ungefähr 20-30 Minuten, was mit der Anleitung von Susan und Ivan wirklich leicht ist!
Wir danken Susan und Ivan sehr für ihre Gastfreundlichkeit!
Everything was perfect. Susan and Ivan were great hosts. The apartment was very clean and let us feel like at home. We recommend their house of
100%. When you go to NYC stay at their house. We also would do this.

Susan and Ivan's apartment is great! They were extremely friendly and helpful hosts and they obviously took a lot of care in making the apartment a nice place to stay (there was even a projector and a record player!). Having said that, we didn't actually spend that much time in the apartment and getting into Manhattan and back was a little tedious - although maybe we were just a bit unlucky because the PATH train wasn't running properly at the weekend because of maintenance work. It's a 20 minute walk from the PATH station to the house, but it's quite a nice walk and we felt safe, even in the middle of the night. There is a taxi stand at the PATH station, but both times we wanted to take a taxi there were none available and we had quite a long wait. Once we even gave up. However, Susan and Ivan introduced us to the "Uber" taxi system which is great - if you don't know it, ask them about it! So worth it!
An advantage of staying in Jersey City is that you can do the Ellis Island / Statue of Liberty trip from Jersey rather than Manhattan, which is much less busy, saving you a lot of waiting time.
Susan and Ivan provided several guide books, which was great. We made extensive use of the Frommer walking guide, it was the perfect way to see NYC!
We didn't see much of Jersey City itself, but it seemed pleasant and the direct neighbourhood was very friendly. There is a big supermarket close by which is open until 01:00 am, which is very convenient.
Overall, it is a good place to stay if you have a bit of time, if you're only on a very short trip, I'd recommend staying in NYC itself.
The apartment is exactly as pictured,and is perfect for a stay. We stayed for 2 weeks and it is like home from home. After a day in the (website hidden) is a quiet haven to come back to and relax,have a few drinks,and listen to some vinyl on the player(going to invest ourselves now we are back). Ivan and Susan are really friendly and laid back,and even though we tried to see the sights and navigate our way around,we were confident that if we had a problem,they were around to help us . We agree with all other comments people have made,and i would not hesitate to tell anyone to stay in this apartments with perfect hosts.
We had an amazing time in this lovely place, perfect for a couple, very quite and it was the same as the pictures.
The hosts were gave us a warm welcome explaining everything to us. They had a lot of good adresses to give to us and they were really helpfull for our all stay.
Thank you again we will come back!:)
We agree wholeheartedly with the positive comments of previous reviews - the apartment is well presented, (very very) well equipped and Susan and Ivan are excellent hosts.
Susan and Ivan made us feel very welcome in the neighbourhood, they were always quick to respond to emails/queries and provided very thorough apartment information (with useful neighborhood restaurant recommendations). The apartment is exactly as it is presented in the airbnb website photos. It has a very cosy and homely feel to it with lots of interesting artwork, books and records. The bed is incredibly comfortable!
The information provided on transport options is very clear about the different routes and travel timings to Manhattan from the apartment. We either used the Liberty Park Light Rail stop (a 10min walk from the apartment) to (email hidden) or Newport and get the PATH train to Manhattan or caught the PATH train from Grove St (a 20min walk through the local neighborhood and a good excuse to stop off at the amazing Wonder Bagels for breakfast!). You can also catch the ferry near the Exchange Pl. PATH stop (take the light rail from the Liberty Park stop) to the financial district which provides a scenic way to travel to Manhattan with great views of the famous skyline.
We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment. After a long day in the hustle and bustle of Manhattan staying in Jersey City provided an opportunity to go back to a quiet, cosy apartment in a friendly, safe neighborhood.
Thank you Susan and Ivan!
I didn't have the opportunity to meet Susan and Ivan but was a smooth transaction. Good communication throughout.
Susan was very nice and left the apartment just the way she found it!
Great friendly guests ,left the place in perfect order.Hope you have enjoyed Lisbon !
Well. I was glad to meet Susan and Ivan. If all the people of New Jersey are open and pleasant as they I would like to live there. They are very positive people.
I was very excited to have a fellow Airbnb host stay with us! Susan was absolutely wonderful, I felt absolutely comfortable leaving the place in her hands. Extremely easy to communicate and coordinate with. My only regret was that I didn't have more time to swap Airbnb ideas and experiences with her. Would love to have her again and will be looking her up the next time I'm in the NYC area.
Ivan was a wonderful guest. Very friendly and easy to coordinate with, and definitely treated my place as if it was his own. He even washed all the linens before leaving, which was way above and beyond. Highly recommended as a guest!
Excellent guest! Ivan left the place practically ready for the next guest. Hope to host him again on his next trip to Atlanta.
Susan and Ivan were fine guests. Considerate, interesting. They were busy and so were we while they were here so we didn't get to spend as much time with them as we would have liked. We would definitely recommend them to other airbnb hosts.
Warm and wonderful people! It was such a pleasure to host them. Ideal guests in every way. Thanks so much!!
