Please make sure that you check all my listings under my profile, and if you don't find the dates you're looking for, shoot me an inquiry anyways and I'll do what I can to help you, including recommending other great local hosts. I’m a proud host with lots of positive reviews.

The Neighborhood:

Our neighborhood is residential, green and safe. Being very close to lots of restaurants, grocery stores, banks, etc. makes this a top location.

Our Place:

This is a huge light-filled 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom 1600 sq feet apartment in Union City, NJ. It is 15 min 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.

Our apartment is a few blocks away the bus station which is serviced 24/7 to Port Authority Bus terminal in Manhattan, right next to Times Square (Read further down for more details about transportation)

Room #1 (this is the room that you are looking at now)

The Master bedroom is very spacious and quiet, it has a queen size brand new bed, lots of closet storage, a private entrance and your own private bathroom.

Room #2 (the other listing at this location)

This bedroom with its queen size bed and its zen accents, is comfortable and charming and has a convenient closet space. You'll share a bath and a half with one other guest room, so maximum four people sharing the full bathroom and a powder room. No waiting for the bathroom!

You don't have to bring bed linens, towels or a 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.

Feel free to message me if you need any further details.

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:

1. Apartment is 5 minutes (5 blocks) from the 24/7 bus to Times Square and 1 block from the city bus (stops at 1am).
2. 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.
3. Buses are available 24/7 so you can catch them even when you spend the whole evening out.
4-The price of these express buses is $3 onboard, and $2.50 if you buy tickets at ticket window #23 at Port Authority Bus Terminal
5. 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

Other info:
* We provide breakfast food items and you can prepare your own breakfast. Please carefully wash, dry and put away your dishes.

* Minimum stay 3 nights

Many ask about the price and extra fees and how to pay. When you put in the dates and number of people you will get our total cost. There are no taxes on top of this, but Wimdu adds their fee. It varies between 6-12% on top of our price.

All the payments are safely made with credit card to Wimdu when booking. They hold the money until the day you check in and will then transfer it to us.

Bookings with us are done with the "strict" cancellation policy and all cancellations should be done through Wimdu. This being said, if we manage to re-rent the place the nights you have canceled we can give a bigger refund to you than what the strict cancellation policy dictates. The earlier you cancel the bigger the chance that we will find other guests.

To confirm that you have read the entire description, please include the secret word "rockefeller" in your inquiry to me.

Please note that 11am check out strictly enforced - we must be here to collect your keys to ensure prompt return of your deposit money.
House rules
Check-out is before 11am. Please make sure to leave the key in the door knob to ensure that your deposit is refunded.

Check-in is after 3pm. We are not able to accommodate early check in, but we are happy to help you organize baggage storage in Manhattan.

You are responsible to carefully wash, dry and put away any dishes that you use. Please also throw out any food items that you've stored in the fridge before you leave.

The minimum stay is three nights (except for the off-season, December to February).

No smoking indoors.

You will have your own set of keys, and are welcome to come and go as you please.

De retour à New York pour 3 nuits, l'appartement proposé par Maria à Weehawken près de la place Ridgely est tout à fait conforme à sa description et se trouve dans un quartier calme tout proche de l'arrêt du petit autobus blanc qui mène directement à Times Square ( $ 3.00 le trajet à régler en cash). Situé au 1er étage d'un petit immeuble, le logement disposé tout en longueur se compose d'une cuisine toute équipée avec climatisation, d'un petit salon contigu à une vaste entrée où l'on peut disposer d'un couchage, d'une belle chambre et d'une salle de bains fonctionnelle. Tout à côté se trouve une épicerie (ouverte tôt le matin mais fermée à 6:00 pm) où l'on peut se fournir pour les petits déjeuners. Maria propose même le service d'un transport à un prix intéressant par l'un de ses amis de l'aéroport à l'appartement. A recommander très vivement.

It was a great leisure trip with Maria. Closer near Manhattan it's only when you live in Manhattan itself, or a hotel. The room was very good and very clean. Can only recommend this property.

Maria & Jay are great hosts: 'locals' with a good sence of humor and a very good sence for hospitality and service. The house is clean, modern, big and in comparison to others, not expensive.

Our stay was very pleasant, partly due to the our hosts and their appartment, but of course also due to the great city of New York.

We'd recommend everybody to go to this place.

Kind regards,
Martijn & Kim from The Netherlands

My friend and I actually ended up staying in another of Maria's properties (3 Bedroom Home with Garden 15 min to Times Square) owing to a small issue with our original booking that she resolved within 24 hours.

We found the house to be really well maintained and wiithin the promised 15 minutes of Times Square when following the easy to understand instructions provided by Maria.

First time using Wimdu and would certainly do so again after this very positive experience.

Thank you so much to Maria and Jay! The flat was really clean and cosy and the location was great (20-30 min by bus to Times Square). Jay and Maria have been really welcoming and gave us helpful advices. I highly recommend this flat.

Great apartment! Clean and comfortable. Everything went smooth with check-in, and it's very easy to get there from Manhattan - don't worry about that. We really enjoyed our stay, and would definitely recommend it to others!
Thanks again

For my stay in the house of Milu was a very bad experience. Before going to NY I got in touch with her for directions to his house. She knew I was alone and that my English was not very fluent. I said send me a taxi and that only cost me $ 100 and normally cost $ 150. I actually came to find her husband, Jay, that clear unlicensed taxi charged me the money (I later learned that a taxi to JFK Mannhattan cost between $ 50-60). Then I get home and I realize I'm in New Jersey. Phew I thought. Her husband tells me that I have to get to Manhattan to catch a mini bus to take me to the city. That mistake was mine for not realizing the exact address. He had not yet seen clear Milu. Well the next morning I take the mini bus and all good but when returning from Manhattan (it was 9pm) I find the bus and I was very nervous, having a really hard time. Finally I got home by taxi very nervous. Upon arriving at Milu wrote by wassup please come to see me the next morning. Wine at 8:30 am and I explained what happened. I replied that she had been very clear with me and not returning my money because I wanted to go from there. In no time she informed me transport to get downtown and what I find worse is that I felt very little helped by her. I saw a person who helped his hosts, I did not help. Just a business for me, I said.Well do not recommend anything because I think the first thing people are and whether there has been a misunderstanding about. This person did not give me the necessary information and no interest anything for my arrival and if everything was ok. Of course, I have not recovered any of my money and when I left I did not have a simple message for her. For me, bad people and especially exploited.
