The Neighborhood:

Our neighborhood is residential, green and safe. Being very close to the Hudson River that separates it from Manhattan makes this a top location to enjoy Manhattan’s breathtaking skyline, day or night.

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).

We will provide you with detailed info/options on how to reach us from the various airports, info will include the option of our private shuttle (less expensive and more interesting than a taxi).

This spacious private flat is comfortable and quiet - it has a two queen beds, each room with large closet with hangers and night tables. The third bedroom has two single beds and a spacious closet. We provide bed linens and towels, but not maid service. Extra guests can be accommodated on a fold down futon, and if required, a double airbed.

You'll have two full bathrooms and one 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.

This private flat has beds for six people, and a double futon. If needed, we can provide you with a double air mattress for an additional 2 people.

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 basic breakfast food items and you can prepare your own breakfast. Please carefully wash, dry and put away your dishes. Lots of restaurants, cafes and grocery stores near us in case you want to start your day with a more substantial meal.

Private parking can be arranged with our neighbor for $10 per day, payable in person.

* 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 or cleaning fees on top of this, but Wimdu adds their fee.

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 are happy to give you information about luggage storage in Manhattan.
House rules
Check-out is before 11am.

Please make sure that all windows are locked and lights turned off when you leave every day. Please also lower heat or air conditioner, as the system is very efficient, the home will warm up or cool down very quickly when you return home.

Please take your trash to the bins outside of the house, to the gated area to the right.

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.

We spent 5 days in the apartment really perfect Milu located in Union City. The apartment is very large, bright, well equipped.
Bus transportation to Manhattan is very convenient, there really every two minutes. The price is $ 3 per occupied seat.
Milu is available for guests, she was able to find us a transport to the airport / apartment.
I highly recommend the apartment Milu.

Our eldest son is studying at Santa Barbara in California and this would be the first chritmas ever without him. So we arranged to meet in NY to celebrate christmas together. Through Wimdu which we have succesfully used before to locations as Sardinia and Paris we found this wonderful apartment in New Jersey. Lots of space, al facilities and only 15 min to Manhattan. Ww thought that there would be christmas beeing sold on every street corner but there were none.....no problem: our host just bought us one and even provided us with lots of decoration stuff. Thanks again Maria!!! We will definitely go back to NY another time and without any doubt contact our friendly host again. c¨,)

Een supervakantie gehad in dit appartement! Het appartement is ruim, gezellig ingericht, van alle gemakken voorzien en niet onbelangrijk... de bedden slapen heerlijk! Rustige, veilige omgeving met voldoende restaurantjes en supermarkten. Na een hele dag slenteren in Manhattan was het hier heerlijk thuiskomen! De trip naar Manhattan duurde ongeveer een half uurtje, inclusief de wandeling naar de bushalte. Busjes rijden af en aan, makkelijke verbinding en voor $3 enkele reis zit je in de stad. Wij zijn geland op de luchthaven Newark, ritje naar en van het appartement duurde maar 20-30 minuten (kosten tussen de $50 en $60 dollar). Een echte aanrader, wij komen hier graag terug!

Well, it was exactly like annouced. The flat is great, with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a 3rd WC. Complete Kitchen, Wlan internet and all you need. Nice, clean and you just feel like beeing "at home". Exactly what you expect after a hard day walking through NYC. Eventhough our encouter was very short, Milu (Maria) and Jay are "superhosts". If we ever go back to NY, this will be our place. To Maria, "muito obrigado, con muito gusto".
In Deutsch. Genau wie in der Beschreibung. Besuchen Sie das Diner in der Central Av. Die Busverbindung, die Wohnung, alles ist so wie angegeben. Bedenken Sie, dass Sie in NY, na ja NJ sind Die Gegend ist sehr "Latino" geprägt aber doch sehr angenehm. Maria und Jay sind sehr herzliche Gastgeber. Nutzen Sie den Transportservice von Ruth Garcia den Ihnen Maria empfiehlt und grüssen Sie den Fahrer Manny von uns. Eine sehr positive und empfehlenswerte Erfahrung. Man(n)y thanks, Danke, Obrigado, Merci.

This apartment outweighed our expectations by far! It was awesome! Felt like home! Our group was there for a conference and walked a lot during the day. It was a breath of fresh air as we finally made it back to the apartment each day! Like I said, felt like coming home! :) Great experience with interacting with the host and she was so kind and responded quickly to our questions! I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone visiting NYC! Also was easy to get in and out of the city on the Express Bus :)

Thanks Maria and Jay for a wonderful stay in your apartment during our week in NY. Amazing what it feels close to Manhattan, though it still is a bit spotty. We NEVER waited on the bus for more than maybe 1 minute but for the most part, it was always a bus waiting to depart.
The apartment is incredibly clean and nice in a very quiet area. The nice service from you with breakfast and all the great information we got about how we would get from JFK to the apartment and which buses go between Jersey and Manhattan. Crisp and clear. Easy to understand. We were 2 couples and yet there was plenty of room for both socializing but also for personal time.
We would recommend you with the highest priority and if we come back to NY we wish that we could live with you again.

Private Apt for 5+ Close to City Center

Tolle Lage, sehr schönes Apartment und eine freundliche und sehr hilfsbereite Vermieterin.
Mit dem Bus ist man in nur 15 min direkt in NY-City.

Der zutritt zu der Wohnung/Haus mit einem Zahlencode ist einfach gemacht und erspart auch eine "nervige" Schlüsselübergabe.
