We arrived to our apartment, which was easy to find, in the afternoon. Tony was there to greet us and gave us an amazing tour of the immediate area and all the subway and city information we would need. Tourist books were available in the room and local take out menus for the nights you just want to relax. It had a nice secure entrance and private outdoor sitting area, which was nice after a long day in the city to sit and have a glass of wine. The ferry was about a 10 minute walk, depending on how bad your feet hurt from exploring the city! ;)
We felt safe walking to and from the ferry, even at night. Everything was provided for us in the room, from toothbrushes to coffee creamer. There is a mini Mart right around the corner for anything else you may need.
Thank you Tony and gerry for the wonderful stay and we really appreciate the gift as we were leaving. I am sure we will be back to visit and stay at your rental!
I stayed with my husband for our honeymoon in Staten Island. We loved the place. It was just perfect and had everything we needed and even more. It was very clean and we were offered new towels and linen in the middle of our stay. The electric fireplace made the apt. even more enjoyable.
The neighborhood is nice and the ferry is reachable in a few minutes.
The owners Gerry and Tony were so friendly and offered us their help in every situation. We had great conversations.
Thank you so much for this great week! It was so comfy and cozy.
We would recommend staying there to everyone.
Perfectly clean, quiet, safe, convenient place to stay for a NYC vacation. Every morning a ten-minute walk, picking up sandwiches at a deli on the way, to start the day with breakfast on the Staten Island Ferry and adventures beyond. Return at night on the Ferry, with you and your lady and the Lady, the Statue of Liberty, a romantic cruise you can say.
Very gracious hosts ready with maps and guidebooks to help show us the way, Tony made us feel right at home. He's a gent.
Firstly dealing with Evolve was a positive and smooth experience.
Our boutique home from home on Staten Island. Three of us stayed in the studio for two weeks . We loved staying in the apartment, it was spacious , very clean and had all the amenities we required. The outside space with the fountain was a delight, we had WiFi and great TV choice to help us chill out.
Gerri and Tony were attentive hosts who were there if we needed them although we liked to be independent.
The States Island ferry was a highlight and no more than 10 minutes walk from the studio.The ferry journey was a personal highlight as it meant we could feast our eyes on that magnificent skyline twice a day , and it's free and runs 24 hours a day.
We had a magnificent time and it waseems great to get away from the frenetic New York City but be back in it in 20 minutes.
We hope to go back some day and would love it if Gerri and Tony would allow us to stay in their lovely apartment.
This was our first stay in New York. It was the 4th of July weekend and I booked last minute so I was surprised to find something at such an affordable price!
We didn't know if our truck would fit in the driveway, so we contacted the owner and he measured it for us and said it would... We decided not to take it anyway but it would have fit. We only took the car out once our week stay. We walked to the ferry and went to Manhatten everyday. There's plenty to eat and do in Staten Island. But our plan was to visit New York. We ordered the City Pass before we arrived, & really liked it. Most lines had a city pass line, with little to no wait. We did the Empire State building, Top of the Rock, The 9/11 memorial, and the Statue of Liberty. We still had tickets for the 2 museums but skipped them.
While on Staten Island we did the Lighthouse muesem & went to South Beach. There's the minor League baseball Stadium were u can catch a game, or just peek through the fence and watch or listen. We got to see their fireworks on the 4th, super neat!
The apartment could have not been on a better location within walking distance to whatever u may need. Tony went out of his way to tour Staten Island with us and get us whatever we needed.
The apartment rental was just like a hotel room with a kitchen, and an adorable outdoor seating area. Although Tony and Gerry said whatever we needed to let them known the only thing we asked for was extra towels and he brought them right away. He also brought extra linens we didn't even use. There wasn't anything we needed that we did the have.
Tony had ample information on transportation around Staten Island and New York.. Even tho we still got turned around once we figured it out cause I had the map me gave us! Rookie subway users! All the New Yorkers were willing to help when we looked confused and pointed us in the right direction;)
We did a lot of walking but are looking forward to returning someday, because there's just so much to do! Would love to be able to stay at Tony & Gerry's place again. It was affordable and a perfect location!
This was, BY FAR, one of our best vacation rentals we have experienced! Tony & Gerri could not have been more accommodating! They went above & beyond to make sure our stay was fabulous! We got in very late on a Friday and Tony was there with a smile to greet us and give us everything we needed. He also made sure we had a new coffee pot & hooked up wifi for our work! No other owners have done what they did for us!
As for the apartment....OUTSTANDING! Super clean and nicely decorated. The location could not be beat! Walk to ferry, hit a baseball game, grab a drink or a bite to eat all within a short, and beautiful walk. We drove from Michigan, so having a convenient, off the street, parking spot was superb. Although we walked or took the ferry most of the trip, it was nice to come home from a few drives to park and unload in a fast and efficient way!
We are already looking forward to coming back to Staten Island and enjoying Tony & Gerri's place!
