Home from home
Ursula and Carlos are the perfect hosts anyone could wish for. We rented their basement apartment and it was like home from home with lots of special little touches to make us feel at home. Absolutely would recommend to anyone and would definitely return!
Amazing space - easy access to NYC
We loved this amazing basement apartment. The full kitchen was well stocked with some personal welcome touches from our host, and the trip into NYC was a quick 15 minutes. The only two minor issues we had are that the ceilings are low, especially the I-beams, and it needs a strong dehumidifier in there - we had some rainy days and our clothing was damp by the end. Otherwise, we’d stay there again for sure!
Amazing host; Easy commute to New York
Ursula was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and had great tips for first-time visitors. Property is in a safe neighborhood right on the NJ Transit bus line, so getting in & out of the city was easy even very late at night. Thanks for a great stay!
Great cozy appartment
Ulla and Carlos know what a visitor to Manhattan needs for a great stay:
* all kinds of info material on NYC, incl. bus and local supermarket/eatery info available
* cozy appartment, tasteful and fully equipped (no washer, we did not need it)
* fridge was stocked with basics - highly welcome after lots of hours travelling
* super helpful and highly responsive interaction in person or by email, before and during our stay.
* appartment is not suited for anyone taller than 6 feet due to low ceiling
* travel time to NYC by bus varies dramatically. We experienced everything from 10 minutes to almost 1 hour. Even outside 'standard' rush hour times.
Thank you Ursala for your hospitality! The breakfast and snacks that you provided were very much appreciated, it was nice that we didn’t have one need while we were your guests! The bus ride into the city was short and sweet and just a short walk to the bus stop! Thank you so much!

We arrived to food for when we arrived and breakfast in the morning. The accommodation was lit up and warm with music on. We even had robes and slippers which I just loved! All the directions and information was great. We loved our stay and hope to return!! Thank you!
