Guestbook comments from the owner
Very comfortable and clean apartment, was well equipped with everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Great location near a nice beach, whilst we all love Manhatten it was great to be able to get out of the city to a quieter and calmer location after a day of sightseeing. Express buses from outside the apartment excellent, a comfortable ride to and from various Manhatten locations - just need to plan your day if you want to use them as they are basically for commuters and don't run at weekends. Other easy 24 hr transport options from Staten Island to Brooklyn and Manhatten were reliable, great views from the ferry. Marina was incredibly helpful and very friendly, available if we needed her but otherwise left us to get on with our holiday undisturbed. Overall, the apartment was a very cost effective way to spend a week in New York, far cheaper and much more comfortable / sociable than spending 7 nights in hotel rooms. We would definately choose to stay in this apartment if we visit New York again. Thanks to Marina for helping us to have a great holiday.
