About this property

Guys Gaby here: to get a feel how close we are, look at the video http:

About your room:
Please don't be put off by this listing being outside of Manhattan. We are closer to Midtown Manhattan, Times Square, Theater District, Madison Square Garden, Grand Central Empire State Building, Saint Patrick's Cathedral, and Rockefeller Center than staying in other parts of Manhattan (Wall St., Upper East or West Side, above 70s... We are closer than all parts of Brooklyn and definitely way closer than staying in Queens/Bronx).

Newly decorated private brand-new house in three-bedroom condo in Union City, NJ. Union City is on the other side of the Lincoln Tunnel and therefore very close (15 min. bus ride) to Port Authority / Times Square area. The best value for your dollar, this independent Airbnb private luxurious room in your own private apt., is simply a great commute, and your best choice to your NYC trip. 2 miles from Port Authority, 2 miles to Madison Square Garden (MSG), 2.2 miles to Times Square, and 2.3 miles to Empire State Building. Other nearby points. As our guest, during the 4th of July whoever stays in our apt. is invited to my house to the best fireworks they have ever seen.

About your accommodations:
Private luxurious room with a queen-size bed, night stands, open spacious central air and heat, beautiful hard-wood floors and exquisite mahogany color to help you relax after a day of sightseeing and shopping or whatever you please. We will welcome you with open arms, take a bath or soak in marble soaking tub with a shower head that makes you feel like you bathing in the rain. take a walk down a beautiful lit hallway to the great kitchen right out of a James Bond movie. A great experience.

Beautiful large living room with crown moldings all around you room with the views of the New York skyline as background, sit down to a glass of wine hear your favorite music, watch TV on 50" HDTV mounted on the wall for your viewing pleasure, eat a snack or whatever. This is what Dan & Gaby your hosts will provide for you. They will greet you as part of your family. If you need them or request them, they will be right there for your assistance; your privacy and accommodation will be our responsibility and our pleasure.

About the neighborhood:
The neighborhood is quiet and very nice, 100 steps from a family grocery to buy what you need. Walking distance to banks, pharmacy, and 15 minutes from midtown Manhattan (Time Square/Port Authority Bus Terminals). You'll reach Midtown faster from this location than from locations even located in Manhattan.

You'll need while away from home maps, discount tickets to your favorite plays to get you going a large stainless-steel refrigerator, microwave, toaster, two coffee makers.

ABOUT YOUR ROOM and the house:
* your own physical keys, so you can come and go as you please
* Real Queen bed, very comfy and cozy. 

* Spacious house
* Original wood floors

* Big backyard where you can smoke

* Free WIFI 
* Includes all linens, blankets, towels and pillows

* Share kitchen and living room with other guests
* One private full bath, not shared with other guests

* House is on street level, so there are some stairs to walk up

* Located in Union City, NJ, a very short direct bus ride to Times Square area

* Five blocks from gorgeous Manhattan views (along Hudson River)

* Best 'cafe con leche' in town on corner. You'll wonder why you spend so much at Starbucks! 

* Buses to Manhattan/Times Square run every minute during day, and every 4 minutes at night. Buses run all night. 

* Great grocery and wine/liquor stores in the neighborhood including one right on the corner which is open until 11pm

* Very safe neighborhood, lots of great restaurants and bakeries but also very quiet at night.

* Private buses (we call it 'chicken bus') run 24/7 and go directly to Manhattan's Midtown / Port Authority, one block away from Times Square for $2.50 a seat. It's what all the locals use.

* City bus runs every 12 minutes to Hoboken, home of the Cake Boss
 and every 20 minutes (during commute hours) into Manhattan.
* Easy city bus access to Jersey Garden Outlet Mall, much closer and as good as Woodbury Commons.

Great energy and very peaceful! Feel free to message me with any questions!

This Property has received a 1 star review by HouseTrip because the owner has cancelled a stay. Such cancellations are extremely rare but we take them very seriously. In addition to penalising owners, we systematically offer other accommodation to the customers affected.
Group Review
Stayed October 2013
This was an excellent place to stay, in a very pretty, quiet area. The owners, who live next door, recently bought the house and are still putting the finishing touches to it but the rooms, kitchen and bedrooms are all finished to a high standard. There is one bathroom which is downstairs. It takes a little longer than we expected to get from Manhattan. Taxis are reluctant to come through the Lincoln Tunnel due to the difficulty of getting a return fare and the travel passes for New York aren't accepted on the bus as the route goes to New Jersey. It's not a big problem but worth knowing as its annoying to wait for the bus and then be told you have to buy a separate ticket before getting on. We would definitely stay there next time we go to New York, which says it all, really!
Your response
Hi Linday Gaby thank you for saying with us and your great review
A really good find, perfect for our visit to Manhattan, quiet, residential and just 15 minutes bus ride from Times Square. The journey from JFK is quite far, so this is a better choice for those flying into Newark. The hosts were very friendly and the house clean and tidy. We would definitely stay again.
