About the property

Spacious,sun-filled Duplex Apartment. Sleeps 7-8

A spacious two-story upper apartment in a landmark house within walking distance from Staten Island Ferry. Shops and a bus stop next doors.

Take the Staten Island Ferry, which runs 24-7 from the southern tip of Manhattan. Walk along the embankment with a view of the Statue of Liberty, or ride the bus a few minutes straight to our door in the St. George historic district. Step into a Victorian home surrounded by tall trees.

Mount a winding staircase and find yourself in the world of the past, under the tall ceilings, with light from many windows. Enjoy the comfort of three spacious bedrooms and a wide-open living-dining room with a high brick chimney.

Use our private driveway if you are traveling by car. Sample the Chinese and Latino takeout steps away if you are on foot. Wander 100 yards away to St. Peter's church, the oldest on Staten Island. Discover the pleasures of our unique 'forgotten borough,' but with Manhattan just a 25-minute sail away.

Very Conveniently Located and Quite Spacious

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our Thanksgiving Weekend stay in Nickolay's place. It is very well located and there was ample room for our group of six to sleep. We enjoyed the radiant heat from the bathroom floor and large shower. The apartment could use a good dusting, but it was generally clean. There are ample bath towels but no wash cloths or kitchen towels, but since we had brought our own, this was no problem. The furniture in the living room is not very comfortable, but we were fine. There was a Fios remote, but the tv didn't seem to have cable service. The kitchen is limited: two electric burners, microwave oven, crockpot, fridge and coffee maker. We did enjoy the toys that Nickolay had thoughtfully provided. Our ten year old enjoyed the blocks and train cars that were in the toy basket.

Lots of space to unwind after a busy day in Manhattan

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults) stayed for 3 nights. Huge space, lots of room! Very clean! Very close to the Staten Island Ferry - 2 minute drive, probably a 15-20 minute walk. Small grocery next door was extremely convenient. Safe neighbourhood.

Would definitely stay here again!!

Great Location and Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and size! We had 8 in our family and needed some space, and easy access into the city, and this was great. The local bus stop was right in front of the house, and took to to the Staten Island Ferry in 10 minutes. From there, the ferry runs every half hour, 24 hours, and drops you off at the tip of Manhattan. Right next door there is a market, laundry, and take out chinese food. Also on the day we were leaving, our flight was at 5pm, our host let us keep our bags at the house another few hours, so we could enjoy the day. We will return! Book it!

Great place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a place that is low cost and practical, stay here and save. It is simple, but saves a lot of money. Our party was made up of 7 adults, and there was plenty of room for us all. Everything was as advertised. The owner, Nickolay, was friendly, quick to respond to any questions and easy to work with.

On the same street of the house, there is a laundromat and a Chineses restaurant. Next door is a little grocery store with pretty much everything you need. A mile away is Key Foods, located at 155 Bay Street for a larger selection. For fresh meat, we walked to Jersey Street and bought at a very reasonable price, meat from Vinnie's Meat. The neighbors were friendly, even offering us free potatoes once as we were walking home!

We walked the mile to and from the free ferry (the walk from the house to the ferry is uphill a lot of the way) and spent time touring Manhattan Island. We used "Statue Cruises" to book months in advance (a must to get in) a tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Well worth the price. On days we wanted to get up to Central Park and Times Square, we bought metro tickets which were $2.75 a ride. Other than that, once you leave the ferry and if you are happy to walk, much can be seen without transportation.

There is a taxi service that charges $8 for the one-way ride from the ferry to the house for those who would rather relax and a bus service as well.

For those unaccustomed to the big city, it was nice to get away from the business and retreat to a home where it was quiet. And although the ferry ride is 30 minutes one way and the walk to the house about 20 minutes (for adult legs), it was a great way to unwind and talk about the day. The ferry ride takes you by the Statue of Liberty on one side, and Governor's Island/Brooklyn Bridge on the other. Chat with the workers on the ferry--they offer up great insight into life in NYC and are friendly. A great way to slow down after a fast paced day.

House is located in the St. George Historical District, 100 yards from a waterfront esplanade facing Manhattan and 15-20 minutes walk from the Staten Island Ferry. This is a fast-changing, diverse neighborhood, mostly residential but with walking access to local restaurants and shops.

The Staten Island Ferry remains the greatest FREE ride in the world. Boats leave every half hour most of the day, and travel 25 minutes to Manhattan, past the Statue of Liberty.
