About Marina

I live in New York for 25 years and truly live this city. My own apartment/office is in the same house, so I'm very reachable and always ready to help. Don't worry, I'm not intrusive at all and respect my guests' privacy. I'm an insurance broker, running my home based business.

Marina purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Marina chose Staten Island

This apartment allows you to combine visiting all New York attractions and enjoy the beach (in summer time) and/or ocean side park with 3 miles of ocean side promenade (all seasons) in one vacation.

What makes this apartment unique

Close to Manhattan, but very quiet & safe neighborhood. All modern furnishing and equipment, central AC, you regulate temperature for your own comfort. Supermarket, grocery stores, 6 restaurants within 5 minutes walk. All public transportation to Manhattan is across the street from home.

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.

Unforgettable vacation in New York

  • 4 of 5

Nice place, located just near the coast of Staten Island , beside bus stop which is very convenient if you have no car. The house was clean and furnished ideally for 4-6 people, we were 8 people which made us feel a bit cramped, but otherwise we have no complaints. Our kids (all teenagers) loved the massive television !! Thanks for an unforgettable vacation in New York. We will return here again for our next vacation to NY, Thanks once again.

Great location offers a variation of convenient travel options to explore several parts of New York

  • 5 of 5

Great location offers a variation of convenient travel options to explore several parts of New York during the same stay. Hostess offers a fast and professional response time on all communications any time. Newly, beautifully decorated and efficient home is very close to the beach with ocean views out of the master bedroom. Plenty of towels, blankets and pillows. Home and linens are so clean that you can smell it in the air, on the beds, and in the towels. Generous cable package offers something to watch for everyone during downtime. Great place to take a romantic walk on the pier or with family and friends. Hostess is kind, professional and does her absolute best to accommodate your needs without being pushy. Thank you so much, Marina, for making our stay comfortable and welcoming. We highly recommend this rental home to anyone choosing to explore New York City and its surrounding areas and look forward to returning soon.

Great experience with Marina!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Marina's SI property for three months and we couldn't have had a better experience. The property was just as described and pictured. It was clean, well-maintained, and is located close to the beach, grocery store, laundromat, and local restaurants. Every Monday she provided complimentary laundry for towels and bedding, and every other Monday she provided complimentary maid services, which, for two busy students, was a lifesaver. Utilities, internet, and cable TV were all included, which we loved. We had no issues during our stay and if we are ever back in the area we will be sure to check with her first for our lodging needs. We truly appreciate everything that Marina did for us, she was always a text or phone call away and was always more than willing to help us or make our stay more enjoyable. I would highly recommend staying at one of her properties.

Great place to stay on Staten Island

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment while attending an even at the Ocean Breeze Complex. It was an easy walk so we were able to avoid parking at the complex. Nice to have the boardwalk and beach across the street; we also took a nice walk to Fort Wadsworth. The apartment worked out well for 4 adults and a teenager with plenty of space, it was clean and well equipped. There was a great local grocery store and several restaurants within walking distance. Would definitely stay there again if we are back on Staten Island.

Good Staten Island Location

  • 3 of 5

Convenient to highway, bridge and Boardwalk. Easy walk to delis and restaurants. Has good space for a family. Beds are not very comfortable. Served us well for weekend visit with family in the area.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry to hear you found my beds not comfortable for you enough. I use medium firm mattresses because some guests like them very soft and some like them really firm and it's impossible to satisfy both. It's sad you did not find a word of appreciation for everything this apartment has to offer.
