Had a wonderful time at Chris' place! Awesome location! When you walk downstairs you have a perfect view of the skyline! His place was well stocked and comfortable. I celebrated my 41st bday with 5 girlfriends and we hardly left the apartment because it was spacious yet cozy. Chris was extremely flexible and gracious and easy to reach. Made my first AIRBNB experience wonderful. Thank you Chris!
We had a great time. The location is perfect. Close to shopping and restaurants. Convenient location for Ferry transportation into NY. Friendly staff on-site that had a wealth of information about the city. We couldn't have asked for more!!
I like the apartment and we enjoyed the stay. The apartment is well maintained. The location is very convenient. The ferry service runs every 20 minutes and the bus in the rush hours comes every 5 min or less. There is a supermarket just downstairs. Free on-site guess parking. Definitely recommended.
Great location and apartment. Everything you would need and expect.
Chris: Although we didn't meet Chris he was quick to respond to all texts and emails and there were no issues during our stay or leading up to it. Sounds like a chilled and helpful guy.
Concierge useful and very helpful much like a hotel.
Buses: 158 bus takes about 20 minutes directly in the the Port Authority bus station by Times Square. By 10 tickets from the terminal and its a lot cheaper. Buses run regularly from opposite Starbucks.
Taxi: For transfers by Taxi use 5 star Taxi & Limo Service - ask Chris for the number, really efficient and 30% cheaper than a taxi from the rank at Newark airport.
Supermarket: A&P supermarket in the bottom of the block is perfect - there is a loyalty tag on one of the key fobs which discounts the price if you submit it when paying.
Starbucks: Very prolific in New York and useful in the city as they all have free WiFi.
Metro - get a metro card, again it works out cheaper long run. Tip - if you buy a single ticket keep the receipt. On entry the machine takes the ticket and so there is no proof you ever bought a ticket - there are signs to this effect.
Take away. Local Chinese was good. Compared to UK portions were big and cost low.
Map - There in an information area in the Port Authority bus station and there is a free tear off map on the counter. Really useful.
All in all a great week - thanks Chris
Wonderful place to stay!! As advertised!!
Swung through NYC on the way up to a wedding in New England, and the stay here was exactly what we needed. Brought my whole family and parents and grandkids and Chris's place was exactly the kind of space we needed. Chris was a great host and really helped by getting us in early and letting us camp in the clubhouse while the apartment was being cleaned, not to mention even helped us bring some of the luggage up while we juggled very tired kids.
All in all a great stay, a great host and a perfect place to sneak in and out of the city easily and "camp out" as it were.
We had a great time in Chris apartment. Perfect calm location with supermarket, bus, liquor store very near. Good with two bathrooms. Chris was very helpful with our questions and everything was working just fine. Would absolutely stay at the same place again!
Chris did a good job at leaving food in the fridge for our arrival, and making sure that everything was in order and clean. That was much appreciated. He was quick at replying to any correspondence and helpful when called.
The flat matches the pictures we saw on the Internet. It's spacious and well furnished, nothing is missing. A little note to explain how to quickly and easily get from NJ to Manhattan; where to find the nearest supermarket or restaurant; etc. would have been helpful though.
Great Apartement, great location. We´ll come again.
O apartamento é muito confortável e espaçoso como anunciado. Possui ótima localização em New Jersey e é muito seguro. Ficamos em 2 casais e 1 criança. O Chris foi muito atencioso desde nosso primeiro contato e estava sempre pronto para nos atender. Foi nossa primeira experiência com o Airbnb e com certeza foi muito melhor do que ficar em um hotel recomendo e voltaremos outra vez!
