Co-Host: I am in Finance and soon entering the real estate market. Michael, co host and son attending St John's University for Accounting and Business.
Very pleasant, friendly and helpful. Good breakfast. Safe neighborhood, Pizzeria nearby, 10 minute walk to train to the ferry. Room was small, but adequate.
Marianne and her family were the first people i met when i arrived in the US. They made me feel very welcome in their home and in their country. The room was very nice, clean and with everything you could need. Her house is located (email hidden) area of Staten Island, close to the train which will take you to the ferry to Manhatten. I highly recommend Mariannes place to anyone who is looking for a quiet and friendly place stay in New York.
Marianne and her parents (who were there in her place on my arrival day) were great. Very responsive to questions prior to my trip and perfect hosts upon arrival - made everything very easy. I was looking for a simple room for a quick overnight stay outside the city. This was perfect.
This is the second time we've stayed with Marianne, and we'd return in a heartbeat. Marianne is a a thoughtful and gracious host, even offering us a free upgrade to the private basement studio apartment since it wasn't in use that weekend. We were able to use the private entrance and come and go as we pleased. We were even able to make our own breakfasts and watch the World Cup on the giant television. Highly recommend!
We had a very nice experience at Marianne's "D" plus APT. Marianne was very accommodating with our needs. The apartment was clean and cozy, location was quiet and very safe, centrally located, short drive to great restaurants and most of all to the Staten Island Ferry! We highly recommend Marianne's APT!
We had a short stay and Marianne and her family were very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely return - the location is very convenient and good value for money.
I stayed at Marianne's house from 5/22 through 5/26. Her house was in a very nice area of Staten Island and was centrally located to every place I needed to go. When I arrived, she greeted me and introduced me to her son, Michael. We seemed to have hit it off right away, they were both very pleasant and friendly. Michael even carried my bags up to my room for me. I found my room to be very clean and updated. The bathroom was spotless and although I did not do the breakfast, it was offered to me everyday of my stay. When I left, Michael again carried my bags out to my car for me. I would definitely recommend her establishment to anyone and as a matter of fact, I will be returning for my son's wedding the end of July and will be staying at their place again.
Marianne was very welcoming and accommodating. I enjoyed my stay a lot!
Everything was as expected. A neat, semi-basement apartment in a good location in Staten Island. Thanks Marianne.
Was an Excellent Stay with Maria!....Very helpful and super kind. Loved the room!..:-). Thanks again!
