Monica was an excellent host & the apartment was exactly as needed and to our requirements. The apartment was clean & tidy upon arrival. We really appreciated the file that contained all the tv & wifi information as well as transport maps & local takeaway menus. Monica was only a phonecall away when we needed her yet also gave us our privacy. We fully recommend anyone visiting New York to stay at Monica's apartment. It's such a short journey into Port Authority Bus Terminal with so many buses each way.
Trust me this place is the good choice!
The location is absolutely ideal (10-15 min to Manhattan), the bus stop is at the door step . The view is awesome...
Monica was a a courteous,thoughtful and professional host from beginning to end. She responded to my initial queries promptly, answered my questions thoroughly and completely, and offered other unsolicited and helpful information. For example, Monica left notes about restaurants in the area, city map, subway information, grocery stores and other services and amenities.
Everything went smoothly with check-in and check-out.
I totally recommend, Thank You Monica!
Thank you for this beautiful review!!
I went to New York by myself to spend there a month. Before my arrival I felt reserved and afraid but the very day I arrived at Monica's apartment I felt like home!!! The apartment is very convenient, with a clean kitchen, living room and a bathroom. I rented the small room and it was excellent for me..!!Aircondition and internet are two things of great importance for me and this is what exactly Monica's apartment included :) She also provided me with towels, sheets, shampoo and tooth paste!!
Needless to say about the spectacular window view!!Ohh gosh it was just awesome..!!! Thank you for everything Monica..You made my New York experience simply amazing ;) :D :D
no troubles, very nice view to Manhattan.
Monica is a wonderful host. She is not just rented you a room; she offers helps in lots of thing; I mean from transportation, restaurants...... The view of the Hudson river is beautiful, and actually the commute to Manhattan is quite convenience. Her home is quiet and peace, and almost get everything that I just need. You don't even need to bring your shampoo, body wash,...... All the roommates that I've met are nice normal people that is a plus.
thank you for everything !!!
The place was nice and accessible. Monica was really helpful especially when we weren't quite sure how to get around, she came to us to guide us. She even helped us book a taxi service to the airport - going above and beyond what anyone can expect!!!
I think this place was amazing! To start, the neighborhood is very quiet and the people are friendly and polite. The apartment is very comfortable and felt just like home: clean, organised and practical. Monica will welcome you with clean sheets, towels and bathroom supplies besides coffe and tea.
The transportation was excellent, the bus was literally down the stairs and it would take between 10-20 minutes to get to 42st in Manhattan.
Very safe area day and night and great host, she's very helpful and will give you everything you need to know New York and for you to be comfortable. I will definitely go there again when I return. Worth the price and experience.
I stayed in Monica's place 3 days and it was great, comfortable, trouble free place with a friendly and helpful host. I enjoyed panoramic views of Manhattan and 30 miniutes ride from the Times Square.
Overall it was a good experience. Monica was very attentive and readily available by phone and e-mail for assistance. Thank you for the help.
The condo is very quaint and roomy and in a gorgeous high end neighborhood with a breathtaking view of the NYC Skyline / Hudson Waterfront immediately accross the street. (The nighttime is especially nice.) Parks line the street from one end to the other and the neighborhood enjoys being in them. Other than the parklife the neighborhood is very quiet.
Monica gave very detailed instructions regarding the transit situation but be aware if not familiar with the area's topography that there are TWO parallel but SEPERATE JFK Boulevards about 2 miles apart from one another - JF Kennedy Boulevard and JF Kennedy Boulevard East (which the locals just refer to as Boulevard East). It seems that the Jersey-ites in general are almost oblivious to (or sometimes cavalier toward) the fact that you wouldn't know that as an outsider.
However, all-in-all the stay would be an excellent value and learning experience.
