“Home away from Home”
We had a great stay. I had my 3 yr old and friends with me and there was enough space for everyone to be comfortable. The bedrooms were my favorite very nice. We will have to come back again soon. Thank you for everything
“Beautiful view of the Staten Island bridge”
Marina the owner a wonderful lady. Very roomy place, we had 3 adults and 6 18 yeat olds, beds for everyone. She wanted all my flight plans so she keep her day in order to meet us at the rental and showed us around and very detailed plans of the area.. Restaurants in the area, bus schedules to city . Rained the second day we were there she drove us to the grocery store and came back for us and then drove me around looking for rain gear.. So much to say. I would rent from her again. Very Great Lady...
“Immaculate and comfortable”
We had a great stay. With 4 adults and 3 kids, I was a little concerned about space, but this apt worked out beautifully. The owner was very helpful in showing us where to find the bus stops and nearby restaurants, all within just a few blocks. Taking the ferry into NYC was very convenient and we never had to wait for more than 15 minutes for the bus or ferry. I would highly recommend this rental.
The only disappointment we had was not being able to walk along the beach, this was due to ongoing work being done after hurricane Sandy. It looked beautiful sand... The accommodation was warm and very spacious with everything you needed, even down to toilet rolls. There were plenty of cups, plates etc and lots of towels. Marina, the owner, couldn't do enough for us, she gave detailed instructions on where to catch the bus, where to eat and where to buy food. We all had a brilliant time visiting New York...which helped in the knowledge that we were coming back to lovely, clean accommodation every day. Thanks Marina...
Response from the owner Thank you guys! It was pleasure meeting you. Good news is our boardwalk and beach will be officially re-opened by May 24, 2013! Come again and enjoy it!
“Thank you for a wonderful week.”
My family spend almost a week at Marina's house when visiting NY from Denmark. They were very exited and happy with the house and the location is very good for trips to either the beach or to the city. The house was neet and clean and everything worked and Marina was very helpful, and even left a cell phone so they could call her if they had questions. This house is definitely recommended for trips to NY and very reasonably priced. Preben Ljungberg San Diego
“Family trip to NYC”
All from the start when the Marina, the proprietor, was contacted there was an excellent level of servicemindedness, helpfulness and understanding. Perfect communication and instructions how to proceed all along. The appartment was very nice, clean and light. With three large bedrooms, there was room for our family of six. Two bathrooms, and a well equipped kitchen also made the stay a very good experience. For a longer stay there are washing possibilities nearby in a laundromat. Restaurants and deli is close by on walking distance. The only minor bad thing was the Staten Island Ferry. You should on your way back try to hit the departing times or else the whole trip back from Manhattan (subway, ferry, bus) may be somewhat lengthy. On the same time, the Staten Island Ferry was a great way to get into Manhattan, passing the Statue of Liberty and allowing you good views of lower Manhattan, the Bronx and the Hudson river. Marina is wonderful. Whatever problem or question you may have she'll try to solve it for you. Excellent service and information. During summer I guess the appartment has a perfect location for a mix of city life and beach life. Highly recommended.
Response from the owner Dear guys, It was great pleasure meeting your family. Hope to see you back here in summer time to enjoy the beach too. As to ferry/bus transfer, Their schedules are synchronized, By the time of ferry arrival all local buses are already waiting for its passengers. You have to follow signs to S51 bus without any delay. If you miss the bus which is already there by your arrival (there are several little cafes and stores at the terminal which might catch your attention) you will have to wait for the next one for about 20 min (if not at rush hours). That's what probably happened in your case.
“A lovely, spacious appartment”
We stayed here for a week over Xmas 2012. the apartment was lovely. Very spacious for 5 of us - the kitchen/dining area is great and the living room is airy and light. The bedrooms, especially the master, have loads of storage space. Marina was lovely and gave us all the info we needed on our arrival. We would definitely recommend staying here as a cheap alternative to staying in Manhattan. 10 minute drive to the Ferry and they run every 15 mins/30 mins. And you get great views of SoL, Ellis and Manhattan skyline from the ferry crosing. (Note: Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty are currently closed due to Sandy)
“Great place to stay for a family vacation”
Ideal for a large family. The appartment was roomy, comfortable and well equipped. It felt just like home. We travelled with two kids aged 7 and 2 and they loved the place. The large flat screen TV and DVD in the living room also helped. There is a lovely big kitchen and dining room table that can easily fit up to eight persons (perfect for planning the day ahead) We did not mind the 30 minutes ferry ride to Manhattan and looked forward to returning to the appartment after a long day visiting the sights in NYC. Thank you Marina for a lovely stay. You were a gracious host, we will certainly come back.
“really nice property, quiet retreat from Manhattan”
If you're looking for a quick trip into Manhattan, this place isn't for you. It's 1 hour away from downtown and 1-1/2 hours from midtown. So if you're not afraid of its bedbug infestation & ridiculous prices, then stay in manhattan. However, if you want to be away from the city when you're done seeing the sights, then this place is for you! I can't recommend it enough. It's quiet & we never felt unsafe, even walking late at night. The house is beautiful and its location across the street from the bus stop, boardwalk & beach is great. It isn't exactly convenient for "stepping out" for a bite to eat since there's only 1 restaurant within walking distance, but if you have a car then you won't have a problem. On the first day of your stay, Marina takes you to the grocery store to stock up on food so take advantage of that. Her kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to cook meals. I kept my expectations low so i'd be prepared for the worst. My jaw dropped upon entering the house and my smile kept getting bigger as we walked through the rest of the rooms. The kids were giddy with excitement and i accepted lots of praise for choosing such an "awesome" place. It was perfect for our family of 3 adults & 2 teenagers. For all the space you get, it's very reasonably priced. Marina is a gracious hostess and helped with all our questions. We appreciated the fact that she lives just downstairs. We didn't have hot enough weather to enjoy the beach but if it's hot enough then you'll appreciate having it across the street. The boardwalk is very nice and you'll see lots of moms pushing strollers. The neighborhood is peaceful and family-friendly. You will have no regrets staying on this property. Yes, you're giving up the convenience of being in Manhattan but you're gaining all the wonderful amenities of not being in Manhattan, if you know what i mean.
Response from the owner Dear guys, Thanks for everything, it was great pleasure meeting you wonderful family. I'm very upset you starved in the middle of food paradise. There are 5 different restaurants within 5-7 min walk from home: Italian-American Seafood, Chinese, Turkish, Russian, Mexican plus a beach cafe with fast food. I did mention all of them at your check in, but probably it was lost in the information stream. Hope you will have another chance to taste all local restaurants. I also highly recommend to use direct X-buses to Manhattan. It takes 22 min to Downtown and 40 min to Midtown. But you have to be at the bus stop across the street from home before 9:30 a.m. If you prefer to sleep longer, your commute to Manhattan will be longer too. Thanks for your nice and warm comments!
“Comfortable and convenient”
I will recommend Marina's venue to the family traveller! The facilities are fully catered for and there are 3 roomy bedrooms. The bus stop is across the road with delies, restaurants and take-aways within walking distance. It is relaxing to come back to a peaceful neighbourhood after a very busy day visiting the New York sites. Taking walks on the promenade is a must! You will see Marina on the first and the last day! She will give you pointers, suggestions and a cellphone incase of emergencies. A recommended stay!
