Great Location for NYC Day Tripping!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for our 50th Anniversary Christmas celebration trip to New York City with our children and grandchildren ... 11 people, aged 12 to 72. The house had plenty of space for our teens and adults. The commute to NYC was very easy with the 'Chicken Bus' which we used every day. We would leave as a group in the morning and be gone until into the night. I had asked Ruth's recommendation for where to order our anniversary cake and she said the nearby Argentine Bakery. Thanks Ruth ... the cake was DELICIOUS!

Family fun and great location for us.

  • 4 of 5

A home with so much personality and a great location. We spent 3 full days in the city which was exhausting, but the home has the most comfortable beds and pillows. New grocery store a few blocks away and since it was so close to Thanksgiving we got a free turkey! Couldn't get the TV upstairs to work and we bought the wrong batteries for the remotes, but we didn't think about that until bedtime so we did not call the owner. Overall very good accommodations for this family trip!

Perfect for large family visiting NYC

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Ruth’s mansion was great! We were a very large group and took up every bit of sleeping space but it was fine since we were all family and close friends. When we arrived it was clean and comfortable. The weather during our stay was very cold but the heat in the house worked just fine. The billiards table had a lot of use, we appreciated that!

But one large reason for choosing a vrbo over a hotel was so that we could cook our own meals. The kitchen was well-stocked with anything you could need for cooking or baking. And the grocery store is like 2 blocks away, super close.

We were there to visit NY, and Ruth helped us with directions to take the chicken jitney buses into the city and that was cheap and easy. When we rented vans for all 20+ of us to drive into upstate NY, their parking was enough for 3 large vans.

But most important to me was how easy it was to contact and communicate with Ruth with any questions. We were a large group but she was so patient w me with all of my changes to who would arrive when.

And we also opted to go thru them for pick up from the airport to get to the house, which was more reasonable for our large group. Our drivers were friendly and helpful! So much so that we used their van service to get from the house to the second leg of our trip, a cruise out of manhattan. Henry checked up on us at the house, offered help if needed. They respond quickly and were so hospitable and helpful, even after we left the house and continued on to the second part of our trip. So grateful to them and happy that we found this house!

Why Ruth Garcia chose Union City

By staying in this property, you will be able to have a lot of space as it has approximately 5,000 Sq Ft and if you have a large group, you will never be bumping into each other. The 3 levels available will give you all the comfort necessary to enjoy a great stay here.

I guarantee you that everybody will enjoy the space which is being offered by this house.

What makes this house unique

You are away from the city, but yet so close! You will be able to get in and out of Manhattan in a wink. It takes approx 15 minutes to be in the heart of Manhattan, so you can enjoy the city all day, but you will be able to come back to a quiet place. By staying in this house, you will be able to enjoy the best of both worlds. The quietness of this area will be much appreciated after being all day in the noisy streets in the city.
