“just a bus/ferry ride away from NYC”
Home owner, Marina, very helpful with our family of 14! We were in 3 of the apartments and it was very comfortable. Easy connection of bus to ferry to see the city! New Year's Eve on the Ferry was priceless (fireworks, Statue of Liberty and the skyline)!
“A great place to stay with friends”
Marina's house is more like 3 independent apartments you can rent either on your own or for a big family , or a group of friends without a garden. But the beach is just across a large road. Rooms, beds , kitchens ,TV 's, fridges, are very large and you are just like at home with computers , Wifi ... Marina has a lot of good advices to provide : transports , restaurants , she can bring your food shopping in her car even if the supermarkets is just 5 minutes walk . There is also a mobile or phone available for internal calls which is very helpful . We did not take the card for the express bus and decided for local Transport to Manhantan which was more than an hour to go ( bus + ferry or Bus + subway ) but still quite comfortable with teenagers . May be not recommended for small children , better to take the express card which is just a bit more expensive . Quality / price is good compared to what you can find in the center of Manhanttan and when you come back to Staten Island you can have a walk on the beach close to the house and really feel like not being in the center of New York . The way with the ferry is just relaxing , in the sun in the morning , and with the evening lights on Manhantan when coming back home . I would recommend Marina' s place for people travelling from 8 to a big group . Great sunny week in New York !
“Peace and Quiet”
We got the 3-bedroom apartment, all 3 floors. There were plenty of towels. Kitchen was well-stocked with plates and utensils. Large refrigerator held all of our food for the 3 days we stayed. For some reasons, there were many flying bugs the first night we arrived but less later (maybe because of the rain the day before). Some ants got into the house but that was a minor issue. There were plenty of beds and they were comfortable. Tips: pay for the parking spot next to the apartment. It is more convenient than parking in the street. Also, take the ferry to Manhattan. It is free and nothing much is free in NYC nowadays.
Response from the owner Dear guys, It was pleasure meeting all of you. Thank you for being so special guests. I'm very happy you enjoyed your stay. Special thank you for taking my offer to rent my ground floor unit in addition to 3 bedroom upstairs so I did not have to worry about comfort for your family member with limited mobility. Sorry that you experienced mosquito attack on the night of your arrival. Unfortunately, it was not the local event, all New York area was effected. Probably it was something in the atmosphere. Fortunately, it does not happen often, maybe one or two nights during the summer. To protect the house from unwanted visitors like ants, please do not leave any uncovered food in the kitchen, take trash to the trash containers outside of the house after each meal and wipe it out immediately if something is spilled. In your case just a small amount of spilled soda made a gourmet dinner for the local ants.
Marina, thanks a lot for a wonderful stay. My students (21) and the teachers were delighted with the stay. Marina waited for us patiently all night long as the plane was 7 hours delayed and arranged a pick-up from the airport The apartments were equipped with everything we needed including sugar, spices, alu foil for packaging and plenty of dishes in the kitchen. Marina is a wonderful person, ready to help you and solve any complaints ( if you really have any) on spot. A free phone is a real help, especially to those who come from abroad. Although we stayed in New York only for 10 days we will never forget that excellent adventure. My only complaint is that I did not have enough time to talk to the host as we were busy all dy long. Marina- I promise I will return sooner than you think. Leszek
“Wonderful place, Wonderful reception”
We rent this flat to participate at the NY Marathon. This place is perfect. Marina help us in everything we needed. it's fully equipped with everything you might think of and even more. We already recommended this flat to some friends runner
Since my retirement 20 years ago, my wife and I have punctuated our lives with frequent visits to interesting places around the world. We have found the best way to do this is to stay in rental houses/cottages in these places, as they provide more space and quietude. I rank this house as one of the better places. Marina, the owner, has old world charm, obliging and direct. As soon as we arrived, she offered to drive us to a supermarket to do shopping. She also drove us back to Newark airport (for a reasonable charge) when we left -- one of these trips for an early flight was at 4am! We used the house as a place for a mini-reunion with the families of my wife's two daughters. The division of the house into apartments with their own entries keep us together yet give all of us privacies. The house also lets us to get away from the crowds after we muscle our way to the many attractions in Manhatten during the day. All of us enjoyed our stay.
“Great holidays in new York !!!”
Our family group of 15, ranging from 10 to 80 years old, had a delightful holiday and stay in this warm and Cozzy house in Staten island... We were welcomed and even taken to the grocery store for shopping! I would Definetely Recommed staying there...
“WOW! Amazing family reunion!”
We spend wonderful family reunion in this beautiful and comfortable house! All 15 of us, including kids, were fascinated by super convenient location of the house - less than 30 min to Manhattan and less than 5 min to the beach!! Public transportation access - beyond all expectation! House by itself gave as opportunity spend quality time tougher with max of comfort! Everything is designed and provided there was high quality and comfortable and accommodative for different generations and tastes! Do not forget the very hospitality of the landlord, including a lot of additional info and even transportation! Definitely will be back and highly recommended!
