We rented this house for ourselves and our bridal party for the week before our wedding. Here is a list of some of the problems that we encountered with this rental house:
- Many doors don't lock
-Front door knocker fell off
-Drain clogged in 1 1/2 floor bathroom
-No hot water on Sunday 8/26
-Air conditioning not working - filter light on
-Many light bulbs missing -American cheese stuck to walls
-Not enough towels for 16 people on beds
-Hot water knob broken in master bathroom sink
-Knobs come off in master bathroom shower
-Broken towel racks in master bathroom
-Hot tub and jacuzzi not working
-Cover of jacuzzi broken
-Personal junk all around the house, including personal financial records
-No furniture in living room
-Handel missing from one refrigerator
-Toaster is broken
-Almost no drinking glasses
-Roaches in the dishwasher
In general the house is filthy, in a terrible state of disrepair, and not fit for rental. Which makes sense since the house is apparently not allowed to be rented. Three police officers came to the house during our stay. They surrounded the backyard and informed us of that fact. It was a very disconcerting event.. Upon rechecking the airbnb website we see that the house that we rented has been taken down. However, I would caution anyone about renting any other property from David Sadek.
Awful start!! welcomed by the police because the manager of the building didn't want to let us in. We waited for 3.5 hours in the lobby, speaking to the manager, the police officers and Mr Sadek's assistant. According to the manager, Mr Sadek rents this unit illegally. he owns the unit but is not allowed to rent it for a few days only, but a full year. The manager being unable to find a hotel for us, though it was not her concern (8 in the party) finally agreed on our stay. BUT the case is being taken to court. The manager is determined to not let anyone else in. What's more you can sleep only 6 in this unit not 8 or 10. The sofa bed is completly broken and can't be slept in! we had to sleep on the floor!! One bathroom can't be used, not easy when you are 8! However, I must admit that the view on Manhattan is great and the unit spacious but unfortunately not well kept at all.( broken doors, no lamps in the living room, wet linen on arrival, blinds broken, leak in bathroom...)
30 min drive to Manhattan through the Washington bridge (12 $ toll) if no traffic. Nobody came when we left although we had faced great trouble, too bad!! We didn't feel at ease for the rest of the stay, spied by the 7/24 reception desk. Finally, on the last day, the unit was inspected by a New Jersey building inspector, probably on account of the case being taken to court. Again, nobody came. Eventually we were ready to leave the unit each day not knowing what would happen the next day!!! Not great when you are in a foreign country and have to deal with all this during your vacation..; As the comprehensive police officer told us "welcome to the USA!!! I kept in touch with air b'n'b all along the stay, to update, but they contacted us two days after arrival although I talked to them on the phone on our arrival, while Mr Sadek's assistant, the police officers(3) and the manager were exchanging. They were due to call back within two hours to find a solution but..Nothing! Luckily, I talked to the manager in the end, and she agreed to let us in as she couldn't find anywhere for us to sleep. She told us "you can stay until the attorneys take care of this all!" So we spent about one hour every day trying to find accomodation for 8 just in case we shoud leave.
my opinion, AVOID THIS UNIT; I guess everybody understand why!!
However, airbnb helped us after our arrival, they even refunded us the first night and gave a 100$ coupon for a next rental.
Great apartment, Great location!
We had anything we needed, David and the staff of the building were extremely nice and attentive.
This apartment is a great value for the money it cost, I highly recommend it.
Very disappointed because the fridge was leaking water, the coffee maker was not working, the toilet was broken running water all day and night we had to cut the water at night to be able to sleep, the microwave got disconnected we had to climb over the counter and connected all the time, no kitchen utensils, but the worst part is the when I contacted the host he didn't help us at all, never answer our emails, so our vacations were nice but the room was the worst ever!!!
Apartment is beautiful and in a great location. Top resort with great pool area. Host was courteous and responsive. Would stay again.
The apartment was large and had wonderful views as stated. We had two parking spaces and not one which I wish I had known in advance. I do not believe that the pool and workout room are available to anyone who rents this space.
The location is good and there are many stores and restaurants within walking distance (provided you like to walk). There is no "jitney" from the building that we saw. We drove to Journal Square in Jersey City and took the Path train to Manhattan. The parking at Journal Square was $10 for an entire day and they are open 24 hours.
There were eight of us and the space was great for that many people, we never felt in each others way. There was a problem with one shower so we had to use the other two only. There were several broken or missing closet doors, the dishwasher tilts when you open it so be careful, I hand washed my dishes because after the first time we realized the dishwasher does not do a great job.
All in all great stay, would recommend.
I would recommend this villa for anyone who will visit NYC..
I have been there with my family and we really had a nice time..
Great hosting thanks to Stephanie and Sadek 3
This place is in a Wow location! Views are the best and easy access to public transportation. If you are driving, this is your place because it comes with 2 car garage spots!! We got all needed for cooking, do laundry, have a nice sleep, the building is a luxury condominium. We got it all and more!!
It is a beautifull place to visit for resting and enjoying nice pool and beach. The views are amazing, and the people in the resort take care of the quests in the highest level.
SPACIOUS!!! Pool was great! Private setting.Easy commute from the city. Overall a GREAT experience.
