Classic, cozy New York home in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cozy apartment in an old, but well maintained New York home. Note it's only for those who can handle stairs. A nice alternative to expensive hotels because you can shop and cook on your own. All the basics are included in the kitchen & bath, plus TV and free WiFi. It's walking distance to the Staten Island Ferry so it's easy to get into Manhattan and you get a picturesque view on the way. Ferry terminal also has eating options, a post office, etc. Street parking is easy if you have a car, but best to leave it there during the day or come in after 7 at night when the commuters clear out. Neighborhood is safe, one block from the police precinct. Owners Robin and Stan are great!

Cute little place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I were in town for the week and enjoyed our stay here. Right around the corner from the bus that takes us right to the ferry to Manhattan. Quaint little kitchen was great to heat up left overs. Wonderful owner who chatted us up a few times. Quiet area with no reason to feel unsafe.

Oasis from NYC

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was a great oasis from New York City. It was rather hot & humid during our trip. The air conditioners were wonderful and it was great to know that we could count on them to cool us off from a long day of sightseeing.

The apartment was just like the pictures and is beautifully decorated and very comfy. It was so wonderful to have room for the 4 of us to stretch out and have our own personal space.

The FREE Staten Island Ferry is a 10 minute walk from the apartment. I am frugal and always looking for ways to save money on our travels. The ferry was a great way to save some money. It is a beautiful ride into NYC with amazing views. We rode the ferry at night on our last day and were treated to some spectacular views. Please take advantage of this!

Robin was absolutely wonderful to work with and was easily accessible by e-mail and phone during our stay. She made everything run very smoothly and was very much appreciated.

The only negatives of our experience- parking and neighborhood litter (neither of which could be controlled by Robin). Parking during the week was crazy. Weekends were much better and there were several spots near the house. We eventually found a spot in front of the house and didn't move our car until our trip was over. If you are like us, do your grocery shopping when you get there and then take advantage of the ferry, no need to drive. This is also an extension of the city and people are litter bugs, which drives me crazy. I just had to pretend I didn't see it. Even though it wasn't the cleanest neighborhood, we always felt safe in the apartment and walking to/from the ferry.

One evening we walked across the street and went to a Staten Island Yankees game. We met some very friendly people who gave us great advice on sightseeing. It was a fun night for a great price.

I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to friends traveling to the area. Robin has done a great job creating a special place to spend some time in NYC. We would be happy to return to Robin's property if we ever find ourselves in New York again.

Wonderful little apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is little as indicated but served our purpose, very clean and neatly organized. The free ferry is a close 5 - 8 minute walk which is important because this was our daily transportation to and from the city. It was sad to see the construction across the street from the apartment because it does block your view of the City skyline. I recommend this place if you're looking for somewhere to sleep at night and want easy access to the city. Robin is very responsive to any texts or emails. Enclosing a great place for the price.

Owner's Response: I think this guest meant Endorsing not Enclosing. Yes the view is gone due to EDC's stupid insistence that the New York Wheel have 930 parking spaces and that they should be contained in a 4 story cement 'bunker', but that will be completed by next year, 2017. If you come to stay in 2017 or thereafter you will have great proximity to the tallest Ferris Wheel in the USA plus a great new outlet mall.

Great place, great location

  • 4 of 5

We were visiting NYC to participate in the Five Borough Bike Ride and chose this property because of it's location to the Staten Island Ferry. This garden apartment only an easy, 5-10 minute walk away. The apartment is very private and a perfect size for 1-2 people. It had everything we needed to be comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped, the cable TV and internet worked great, and the fireplace heater warmed the rooms. I assume the window air conditioner would have cooled the room had we needed it. We used the apartment as a place to sleep as we were on go most of the time. The bed was very comfortable. The only slight negative was that we couldn't lock our bikes indoors. However, we were able to secure them under the porch, which was out of the rain and out view from the street. Street parking is available but not necessarily directly in front of the house.

The hosts are friendly. If you're looking for an affordable place with free parking near NYC, this is a great choice. We recommend it and would happily use it again.

Owner's Response: Street parking is available DIRECTLY in front of the house, it just depends on what time of the day. Because the house is so close to the free commuter ferry to Manhattan, there are always people coming to park who work in Manhattan. Commuters come from all over the island and from the nearby state of New Jersey to park. I have even seen cars with license plates from Massachusetts. After 4 PM on weekdays there are plenty of available parking spaces.

Great Place for a Good Night's sleep

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week visiting family and seeing the sights of New York. The location was wonderful. We enjoyed taking the ferry in every day. We had free parking and a comfortable place to stay each evening after long days in Manhattan. We also had an opportunity to take an a game with the local team at the beautiful waterfront stadium. Very, very convenient. We did not worry about crime or anything like that.
