                            Nice place, located just near the coast of Staten Island , beside bus stop which is very convenient if you have no car. The house was clean and furnished ideally for 4-6 people, we were 8 people which made us feel a bit cramped, but otherwise we have no complaints. Our kids (all teenagers) loved the massive television !! Thanks for an unforgettable vacation in New York. We will return here again for our next vacation to NY, Thanks once again.

                            Recommended for: Families with teenagers, sightseeing, tourists without a car.

                            Visited New York during Super Bowl Weekend. City was very busy and staying at Marina's place was the ideal place to stay. Very quiet , clean and safe neighborhood. Grocery store around the corner is very clean and convenient and they deliver your groceries. No car needed bus is across the street fairy is free to get to Lower Manhattan and from there you just get on the Subway and go everywhere you want very easy to use. Cost for all day to use train and buses is 2.50 per person. Stay away from Taxis . Most Definitely will stay here again when visiting with family during summer.

                            Recommended for: Families with teenagers, tourists without a car, families with young children, age 55+.

                            We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. It was my first time using Home Away to rent and Marina made it simple. We loved the location being close to the beach and using the public bus and ferry to get to downtown New York was extremely easy. It was really nice to have the ability to enjoy the hustle and bustle of New York but come back in the evenings to a peaceful and comfortable home. The house accommodated the 6 of us easily and we found everything we needed in the kitchen. The only thing I would note is that the bed in the master bedroom is very low and some people might have difficulty getting up from it. Overall it was a perfect choice for us and hopefully many others will choose it as their New York vacation rental. Thank you for your hospitality Marina and for making this property available to travelers. Karen Milton, WA

                            We got to know Marina as very friendly an helpful. At all times she was ready to give us good advise. She even drove us twice to a Supermarket, so that we could go Shopping there. We stayed in Marinas house for 10 days. We felt very comfortable there. In the kitchen you can find everything you need. The rooms are nicely climated and you can sleep very well there. The bus-stop is quite near the house (3 minutes walk). By bus an by Ferry you Need about 1 hour to reach south-Manhatten; about 1 1/2 hours to Times-Square. Near the house you can find a good laundry and all Shops for daily Needs. The beach is a 5-minutes-walk away. It is nice an also clean. Unfortunately we only were there once, because we ran out of time; there is too much to see in New York. Thank you Marina for all your good advices; they were very helpful. We are sure to visit NYC again

                            This apartment was great and was just as described in the listing. Our group had 7 people and there was plenty of room. Marina was great and very helpful in planning our trip. The kids enjoyed the beach which was right across the street. The local bus stop is also across the street. The bus ride to the ferry was 20 minutes, and the ferry ride to Manhattan takes 25 minutes, so you need to plan accordingly if you are going into Manhattan - it is not as convenient time wise, but it was nice to be away from the noise after a day in the city. There was one very small convenient store that was very limited on grocery items, and a small pharmacy that were a couple of blocks away. A new grocery store will be opening soon, and that will be a big plus if you want to buy groceries and save money. We ate at Basillios Italian Restaurant - the menu was limited, but the food was good. We really enjoyed our stay at Marina's apartment, and would recommend this property if you enjoy both the big city and some quiet time on the beach.

                            Owner response: Thank you guys! It was pleasure meting your family. There is another big deli/grocery store if you walk another block. Hope they will open Key Food Supermarket by August 1 as promised. It's just around the corner from home and already has GRAND OPENING sign. Come again next summer, it will be more options for your grocery shopping.

                            We came to the NYC area to watch major and minor league baseball games for a week. The beach in front of this apartment was undergoing major repair work (after hurricane Sandy), but we were still able to walk along the boardwalk. (The beach was opening about the time we left). The apartment was a great central location for visits to Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, and New Jersey. Marina oriented us to public transportation, and local services (restaurants, shops, etc). We had a great stay. Our only critique would be that the fold out couches (we needed to use one) were not very comfortable.

                            Firstly let me say that Marina is a wonderful and caring host. Marina answered promptly every email we sent with various enquiries about the apartment and area. Her apartment is just lovely and true to the pictures. It was very roomy, beautifully furnished, very comfortable and CLEAN. We felt very safe in the area and travelling on the bus late at night from the ferry. The apartment has everything you need to self cater and the location close to small deli type shops was very handy for this purpose. It was very handy having use of the free computer to check emails from home. There are a couple of bus services which stop right across the road from the apartment. One will take you to the ferry (a journey of about 20 minutes and then a 20 minute ferry crossing); one is a direct express to Manhattan and the other will take you to a subway in Brooklyn where you can catch a train into Manhattan. We would suggest when using the bus service to the ferry and the ferry itself that you avail yourself of timetables to save missing a ferry and having to wait at least 30 minutes for the next one. Make sure you note the return bus stops for the express buses and times to again reduce waiting times. You can purchase a $50 transport card valid for 7 days that will also cover the subways and express buses. There are other transport values that may suit longer stays. The ferry is free. The boardwalk across from the apartment makes for a lovely walk and the beach is one of the best family beaches we have ever seen. The restaurant on the boardwalk is a lovely place to have an evening drink and a bite to eat after a day in Manhattan. As this was our first trip to the USA it was wonderful being met by Marina and then being taken back to the airport when we were due to fly home. The apartment has everything you need and we would recommend Marina and her apartment to others wishing to stay in New York and particularly on Staten Island. We hope to stay at Marina's apartment when we visit New York again.

                            We (2 adults and 3 teenagers) have spent 2 weeks in Marina's holiday home. This is the ideal way to discover New York without having to run to see everything in 5 days. We could go daily in the city (Manhattan) quickly with the express bus or sometimes with the ferry. After a few hours in Manhattan, we liked to return to the calm of Staten Island and enjoy the beach, especially it was very hot. The accommodation was well conditioned, very clean and comfortable, and our hostess Marina very nice and helpful. The kitchen is fully equipped. There are some shops and good restaurants nearby. The bus stop is very close. The property description on the website and reviews from other tenants are perfectly entirely consistent with reality. In summary, it was perfect for a 2 week stay for a family.
