About the property

This is a bright and fresh one bedroom apartment on the main floor of a three story building. You'll only have a few steps up from the street to climb.

The carpeted bedroom has a queen size bed, bedside table and lots of closet space. East facing window for a lovely breeze at night.

The living room has a sofa bed for additional sleeping spots. This apartment is great for two couples, will fit five or six (airbeds) if you're close friends or family.

One spacious bathroom with shower/tub combo and a full kitchen with a brand new fridge and gas stove. Plenty of space in cupboards for your things.

You won't need any keys for the apartment to come and go - just a secret code issued specifically for each booking. You will need a building key though!

Street parking - good option if you arrive before 5pm, as spots are very limited. Let us know if you decide to park in the lot or on the street, as we’ll provide you with a visitor permit ($35 deposit, held until permit is returned )

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

Q: How will I get the keys?

A: Once the booking is complete I will invite you to view and download an app about the apartment. In that app you’ll get info on how to find the key and access the apartment. There is only ONE key required, for the building door. The apartment itself does not have a physical key, you will have a private pin code for the electronic lock.

Q: Is it near the subway?

A: We are across the river from midtown, but there is no subway access (yet). Instead, we commute by the super awesome “chicken buses” or private jitney buses, that run every 5 minutes, all day and all night. As in 24/7 access. The cost is $3 per trip and I’ll send you detailed info once you’ve booked.

Q. Where in the building is the unit?

A. This building has 6 units, 3 of which are my units. This unit is on the first floor, at the back of the building. The other three units have long term tenants, so we are careful to make sure that the building is kept quiet and safe for everyone.

Q: Is the neighborhood safe?

A: Weehawken Heights is a very comfortable and easy place to be in. There are tons of families, professionals, apartments, private houses and the streets are well lit. You can walk home at any time of the night and not be bothered.

Q: Do I need to bring towels, a hair dryer, or linens?

A: Nope! I provide all these things. Same with basic toiletries such as soap, shampoo, hand soap

Q: Will I have a key? Can I come and go as I please?

A: Yes and yes. And I wouldn't trust any listing with which this isn't the case.

Q: Can my friend sleep on the sofa?

A: I’m very particular about the guest count. You may only have the number of guests stay that you booked for. What if there is an emergency and we need to evacuate the building? Don’t you want me to know how many people are there? Please communicate with me if you have a last minute friend want to stay with you.

Q: What's my total booking price?

A: Owners see a different screen then guests. You’ll see the final price on the quote that I send you, or you can check the final price yourself by entering your dates and the number of guests. The system will calculate the amount and show you the total (but it won’t show me the final total as I don’t see the service fee). figure should be present after you enter your dates.

Q: Does the apartment look the same as the photos?

A: Yes, the pictures were taken by a professional photographer. I may change around the linens or move some cushions around, but it looks like the pictures.

One last thing: Because you read this entire listing to the end, you get bonus points for your ability to follow directions. To redeem them (for increased chance of booking!) just include the phrase “I read the FAQs!" at the top of your message.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Maria and Jay were very helpful. We got to the Gatehouse extremely late and Jay came out to meet us and make sure we got checked-in safely. He also gave us great tips on parking! The apartment was just as pictured and everything we had expected. We would definitely come back again.

Clean, comfortable, & easy!

We traveled to this apartment for a Wed-Sun get away and had a wonderful experience. Our biggest worry was public transit, but it was a breeze! Highly recommended 👍🏻

Loved the Gatehouse! Can’t wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was clean and well kept. Maria is helpful and quick to answer any questions. It’s a short trip to the city on the Chicken Buses. Highly recommend dinner at the Chart House in Weehawken. We celebrated our 10th Anniversary with an amazing meal and breathtaking views of the skyline. Parking was not an issue at all. Next time we’re bringing the kids!

We had a fantastic time. Maria was a great host. She was always available for questions and great advice on seeing NYC. The apartment was just like the pictures and the location was great. Transportation by the "chicken bus" was great that she recommended it was available 24/7. My husband and I went to a Broadway play and we got back to the apartment kinda late and we felt safe walking in the neighborhood. Great trip and would recommend highly.

A Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to NYC and staying at the Gatehouse Apt was truly wonderful! Maria went out of her way to make things go smoothly! The morning we were due to arrive the hot water tank leaked so she called to tell us she might have to move us to another apartment if the replacement tank wasn't installed by the time we arrived. Not only was a new tank in and working when we got there but she saved a parking space for us! She gave us great tips on getting transportation into and out of the city. The apartment was lovely and met our expectations. It is a great place to stay at. Looking forward to a return visit!
