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.

Spacious clean home with lots of character

  • 5 of 5

The house is older and tucked into a quiet neighborhood. The walk to the ferry proved a little further than our children could make it and we opted for a ferry taxi to and from each day. There is also a bus stop 2 houses down that would take you.

Because the temps went from 85 f to 42f in 2 days, trying to adjust the heating and cooling to comfortable took a little bit, but there we all stayed comfortable.

There were no bugs, shower and bathrooms were new. Everything we needed was here. We did bring our own hairdryer and were thankful.

There were a lot of towels and cleaning supplies.

The store next door was perfect, fresh bagels every morning and anything we needed. Victor became our new nest friend.

Mattresses were new AND firm. We never had a reason to contact owner. He gave us great information on how to get into the house and wifi password.

If you are looking to do NY with a large family and want to stay away from the loud bright city at a reasonable price, this is the place for you!

We will definately consider this home for our next stay.

Very disappointing the apartment was very very fifty!

  • 1 of 5

We have used vrbo for many years and. Always had great success. But this rental was way below ok It smelled bad and had not been cleaned in a long time lint and dust everywhere. The toilets would not flush properly. there were bugs and we had to spray. No wash cloths or dish cloths. Well to say more is not needed To say the least we were very unhappy with this rental and think you should check it out before offering it to anyone else

The property is clean and tidy and more than adequate for our family which was 2 Adults and our 4 ch

  • 5 of 5

This property is all about its location. It's a 15 minute stroll to the Staten Island Ferry or a 2 minute $10 taxi ride. The property has all the basics required for a family 'doing' Manhatten and needing a place to sleep in between. It's nicely spread out over two floors so, in our case, the kids had upstairs while we had the downstairs area to ourselves. Yes it's basic, but it offers brilliant value for money when compared to the price of hotels in Manhatten. It has everything in the Kitchenette you need to make breakfast and snacks and there is a handy little deli next door which provides all the basics needed..... And they were nice people too.

The owner was very helpful and so I would have no hesitation recommending his property

Affordable alternative to visit Manhattan

  • 5 of 5

I went into the house and inspected it very well and found the house to be very clean and also inspected all the mattresses and pull-out beds and there were no problems. The apartment was wonderful, the rooms are very clean and all supplies needed for a wonderful vacation were on hand. Nikolay was very accommodating. We arrived early and were allowed to stay late in the afternoon to enjoy one more day of Manhattan. Nikolai had checked on us several times during the week to make sure everything was okay. I cannot express how much we enjoyed staying at this house we felt safe and comfortable all week long, and the driveway was such a bonus since we drove in to New York City. There's a bus stop right outside which we caught and took to the ferry every day . I would definitely stay in the house again. Thanks Nikolay for making our vacation a very memorable one.

Big appartment, but some problems

  • 2 of 5

We rented this apartment for a week in April. We were 4 adults and 3 kids, and there was plenty of room for all of us. The location is great, but the house is not as clean as it could be. The first night we were there, we found a bed bug in the foldable bed in wich my daughter was supposed to sleep. We called the owner, he came right away, threw the mattress away and brought a brand new one a few minutes later. We had a problem with the electrical outlet in the kitchen, but the owner came and fixed it. There was no hand towels, paper towels and dish cloth to wash the dishes, which was really inconvenient. There was also very strong smells in the apartment. Some workers were digging in the front yard and seemed to be trying to fix this problem the day we left. We didn't ask for it, but the owner gave us a 100$ rebate the day before we left. I wouldn't go back to the apartment because the bed bug really scared me. We didn't see any other bug of this type during our stay, but I still had to clean everything with hot water when we got back home, just to make sure.

Owner's Response: I have plenty of hand towels just let me know if you can't find it. You could use a dishwasher at the kitchen. By the way, I have a new mattresses and linens. Best regards, Nikolay

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.
