This sweet little studio has a pull out trundle bed (single becomes a double) as well as a full size fold down futon. You’ll have a small little patio at the back where you can have a cigarette, if you smoke. Absolutely no smoking indoors. The studio is a partial basement with above ground windows. This means only a few stairs to manage with heavy luggage!
There is a small galley kitchen with a microwave, fridge, sink and counter space to sit down. There is no stove, although we do provide an electric kettle and a coffee machine. There's a small grocery across the street where Ms. Kim makes great breakfast sandwiches.
You don't have to bring bed linen, towels or hair dryer, we will provide you with fluffy clean towels and all you need to feel comfortable and at home! The house is equipped with central heat and air conditioning. High speed wireless internet, and other convenient things like iron, city guides, maps, etc. are provided.
Our neighborhood is residential, green and safe. Being very close to the Hudson River, that separates us from Manhattan, makes this a top location to enjoy Manhattan’s breathtaking skyline, day or night. Our apartment is 2 blocks away from the first bus stop after boarding from Port Authority Bus terminal in Manhattan. (Read further down for more details about transportation)
It is a 10 minute bus ride to Midtown, near Times Square via the Lincoln Tunnel. As surprising as it may seem, this place is closer to Manhattan than other places located in Upper Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens or the Bronx.
About transportation: I have received many questions from people who don't believe it possible to be outside of Manhattan and so close to it, yet it's true. Here are some facts about transportation:
The apartment is 3 minutes (2 blocks) from the bus stop. The bus is very frequent, I rarely wait for it more than 2 to 3 minutes. Most of the time you won't even wait at all. You will step to the bus stop and a bus will be there. Buses are available 24/7 so you can catch them even when you spend the whole evening out. The price of these express buses is $3 on board, and $2.50 if you buy tickets at ticket window #23 in Port Authority Bus Terminal. You won't find these buses timetable or route on the internet, it's a private bus company that runs many lines in and out of Manhattan.

Dear Milu, it was excelent, everything was ok, thank you, Michael
The stay was great. The house was exactly the Beschreibungen.Wir were seven people there. The connection to Manhattan was good, although you had to walk a bit, but that was not a problem as the so-called "chicken buses" every few minutes went to the Port Authority, back it went so fast selling agency.
Overall it was a great stay, we can recommend this house to anyone. Only the garden could use a refresher,
Maria and Jay, who received us very nice, gave us great tips for breakfast. (At the corner of 23rd, we would not have guessed)
The restaurant "Charritos" on the Hudson River was a very good recommendation.
Thank you for a great stay,
Johann Dieken and family
Der Aufenthalt war super. Das Haus entsprach genau den Beschreibungen.Wir waren mit sieben Personen dort. Die Anbindung nach Manhattan war gut, man musste zwar ein bischen laufen, aber das war kein Problem, da die sogenannten "chicken buses" alle paar Minuten gefahren sind zum Port Authority, zurück ging es ganau so schnell.
Insgesamt war es ein toller Aufenthalt, wir können dieses Haus jedem empfehlen. Nur der Garten könnte eine Auffrischung gebrauchen,
Maria und Jay, die uns sehr nett empfangen haben, gaben uns tolle Tips fürs Frühstück. (An der Ecke 23rd, wir wären nicht drauf gekommen)
Auch das Restaurant "Charritos" am Hudson River war eine sehr gute Empfehlung.
Vielen Dank für den Tollen Aufenthalt,
Johann Dieken und Familie
We had a lovely stay at the appartment. The appartment is spacious, clean and well equiped. Just a block away from the busshelter to Port Authority. The little bus takes you to Manhattan in 10-30 min, depending on the traffic.
A great , spacious, clean and fully equipped apartment. Very easy access to Manhatten by chicken bus, transfer about 15 minutes. Surroundings are safe to walk, even in the evening. Small restaurants with good and reasonable priced menus in walking distance. The hosts are absolutely great, very friendly and helpfull in all matters. We had a very pleasant stay and we can highly recommend this place. Thank you Maria and Jay.
It's a wonderful, great,clean and big apartment. Only 5 minutes to Manhatten City by bus. The bus stop around the corner. We had a great time. We recommend this apartment. Better than a hotel. Best regards to Maria & Jay.
We were actually asked to go to a larger apartment in 37st Street, Union City, for logistic reasons. Excellent, very spacious and clean apartment and a very nice and helpful host. Parking space in front of the house. Very conveniently located to the bus station (5 min walk), with buses (3 USD) going every 2 min to Times Square (15-25 min, depending on traffic). Safe neighborhood with many nice small South American restaurants. We had a wonderful weekend.
The apartment has fully met our expectations. It looks exactly like the pictures. We felt in this lovingly furnished apartment very comfortable and at home. Even with 7 people we had enough space for sleeping, eating and living. In the two small rooms for 1 and 2 people were sleeping and in the big four people (double bed + Doppelluftmatraze). Only the bathroom required some routine use, but this has worked well with two bathrooms. The kitchen has everything to appliances and utensils you would need. Some previous tenant, so we also have left behind some of foodstuffs or cosmetic products after their stay in the apartment. The neighborhood is quiet and pleasant.
Milu has us most welcome and given lots of tips for staying. She was also always available for us. Free WiFi made us much easier;).
For the 11 days we had rented a minivan. This we could with a parking pass in the street of the apartment or around park. However, it was not always easy to find a parking space. From Union City one comes very fast everywhere (for shopping at Wal-Mart or to Times Square, for example) out. For the City we had Milu a good tip given for parking ($ 23 for one day or up to 12 hours), which is a great price for NYC.
We would recommend the apartment and definitely go back there again and again.
Das Apartment hat unseren Vorstellungen vollständig entsprochen. Es sieht genauso aus wie auf den Fotos. Wir haben uns in diesem liebevoll eingerichteten Apartment sehr wohl und wie zuhause gefühlt. Sogar mit 7 Personen hatten wir genügend Platz zum Schlafen, Essen und Wohnen. In den beiden kleinen Zimmern haben jeweils 1 und 2 Personen geschlafen und in dem großen vier Personen (Doppelbett + Doppelluftmatraze). Lediglich die Badezimmerbenutzung erforderte einige Routine, was aber bei zwei Bädern gut funktioniert hat. Die Küche bietet alles an Geräten und Utensilien, was man braucht. Einige Vormieter, so auch wir, haben zum Teil Lebensmittel oder Kosmetik-Artikel nach ihrem Aufenthalt in der Wohnung zurückgelassen. Die Nachbarschaft ist ruhig und angenehm.
Milu hat uns sehr herzlich empfangen und viele Tipps für den Aufenthalt gegeben. Sie war außerdem jederzeit für uns erreichbar. Freies WiFi machte uns einiges einfacher ;).
Für die 11 Tage hatten wir uns einen Minivan gemietet. Diesen konnten wir mit einem Parkausweis in der Straße des Apartments bzw. der Umgebung parken. Allerdings war es nicht immer einfach einen freien Parkplatz zu finden. Von Union City aus kommt man sehr schnell überall hin (z.B. zum Einkaufen im Wal-Mart oder zum Times Square). Für die City hatte uns Milu einen guten Tipp zum Parken gegeben ($23 für einen Tag bzw. bis zu 12 Stunden), was ein Top-Preis für NYC ist.
Wir würden das Apartment auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen und immer wieder dorthin zurückkehren.
Fabulous host! Everything you need for a short visit to New York is there. The house is very spacious and beautiful. Plus it is really convenient to get to NYC by bus. I can only recommend you to stay there for your visit to New York, especially if you are traveling with your family. I would go there again any time!!
I stayed in the house with my wife, daughter, son and daughter in law.
During the day we were visiting NewYork-Manhatten. In the morning and evening and night of course, we stayed in the house. We found all the comfort we needed including enough privacy for the children, ( age 30 and 25 ). We also followed the tip of the host to stay at least one night in Union City-New Jersey, this was of great fun.
Summary: We had a very pleasant stay in the house, and it full filled our expectations. Regards A Vandewall
Many thanks to Maria & Jay!
The house is very close to Manhatten. Chicken bus is available every some minutes for 3 Dollar.
There is a big living room/kitchen with a small bathroom in ground floor and 3 nice sleeping rooms and a big bath room in first floor.
Maria & Jay gave us good information about New York. Next time in New York we will use this house again.
