                          Location

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          Located on the North Shore of the borough of Staten Island and within a few short blocks to all public transportation. Safe, yet very convenient to Lower Manhattan by the free 30 minute ferry that runs every day all day and night. Going to the ferry it is a short walk downhill and on the way back there is a Metro-card transfer bus, #42 that stops right in front of the house. The house is landmarked and is located in a Historic district community with many fine old homes, public buildings and churches. The back garden has a wonderful view of the Hudson Harbor with the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building all in sight. Within the village of St. George the neighborhood is quaint and quiet with small markets, pharmacies and liquor stores nearby.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: Stan & Robin after a jazz concert in the Hudson Valley. We like being hosts to vacation travelers from all over the world. I manage the bookings, schedules and housecleaning crew and Stan, who is a CPA keeps the books in shape.

                          Why the Owner Chose Staten Island:
                          Because it is large enough for families and groups of friends who like to travel together. We also chose it because it is only one block away from our home so we can go up to the house at anytime to check on things, meet our guests and help with a personal interaction.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The house is very spacious with many rooms and so accommodates large families and groups. It is clean, comfortable and in a safe neighborhood.
