  • Wonderful visit

    "I decided to take the time to write this review because of the unwarranted negative reviews recently posted on this property. This home is situated in a quiet, very convenient neighborhood just minutes away from NYC. There is a playground, tennis courts, churches and quaint downtown all within a few block walking distance. We stayed here with our family including an 11, 3 and 1 year old and had a delightful time. The interior of the house is pristine. It is true that the bed arrangements could be better identified. One couple did move the twin beds together to make a king sleeping arrangement. Peter is still doing enhancements to the house so yes, the shower in the master bath needs a door which he will be adding soon. However, these small inconveniences did nothing to detract from our week. The master queen bed is very comfortable. The bathrooms are small but well-appointed. I am guessing the reviewers complaining have, perhaps, never been to the NYC area. Space is at a premium and to find a house with a large back yard, grill, fire pit and deck is amazing. We spent many wonderful hours tossing the football and playing with our grandchildren. We entertained friends with no difficulties cooking meals. We did not come to watch TV so the TV being in the kitchen was not an issue. And Peter is a gracious host who genuinely wants his guests to have a wonderful time. Oh, did I mention you can get just about anywhere you need to in less than 30 minutes? Moments away from the Garden State, NJ Turnpike and smaller highways make this spot unbelievably convenient. Travelers need to remember their own homes are not perfect. This is a great house and a great value. We will likely return! Thank you Peter for everything. PS: I panicked when I saw the review about the skunk. However, despite NJ and NYC suffering from a skunk problem, we never saw or smelled one during our visit. Something may stink I think it may be the person who wrote that review."

  • Great vacation home!

    "My stay at the jersey home was great! The owner was very gracious and accommodating. Everything is there for you that you need. Enough space for a whole family and then some. Drive into the Manhattan Area could be about 40 min at times but it's still very close. Close to Path station to get on subway to the manhattan area is about 15 min. Lots of places to eat at. Overall it was a great home and would stay here again!"

  • The Perfect Home Base for Visiting NYC!

    "My husband, two daughters, and myself, just returned from a stay at the Garden Street Apt. It was very clean, had plenty of space for the four of us, and was quite homey. We really loved staying there. Although we don't usually use A/C that and the fans worked wonders on the hot nights (esp after walking all day!). We garaged our car upon arrival and never took it out until we left (walking distance from apt). Everything we needed was within walking distance and we always felt safe, day or night. It was the most perfect location imaginable. One thing you MUST do is get yourself down to the Frank Sinatra Drive. MOST amazing views of the city! Take 9th down to Hudson and stroll along the water front. So Beautiful! Getting to NYC was a breeze. I was a little concerned about using the bus (I've been on some pretty sketchy ones elsewhere) but it was immaculately clean, and quite comfortable, and at $3.20/person ($1.45 for youngest-who then rode FREE from Sat-Sun) it couldn't be beat cost wise. The stop can be seen from the front door and the bus comes every 3-5 minutes! You end up at the Port Authority (42nd & 8th) and can go anywhere from there. Mass transit was easy to figure out, and I'm from Maine, don't use cabs, don't have subways, and have only ridden the bus into town once! Lisa's Deli was a gem, Oh My Gosh! We loved everything we got there! One reason for our visit was that my going-on-14 year old wanted to see Carlo's Bakery. I read a lot of not great stuff about lines, rude servers, and eh food so we were just going to photo op it. She & I walked down at 7am Sun. We thought it was closed until I saw people inside. Only 4 people in front of us, servers were very nice, and the coffee danish my daughter got was Yummy (she says). It's def a bakery-gone-tourist trap but what the heck-check it out! I hope I haven't forgotten anything. If we ever went back, we'd stay here. Thank You so much for giving us a home away from home!"

  • Very Nice Place

    "My son in Law and I, planned a trip to the Super Bowl. We found Mike's apartment on VRBO, It was a great choice. Nice and clean, close to food and transportation. It was nice to see parts of Jersey on our walks to and from the train. The PATH train got us to NY and the Game. We stayed out till 3am two of the nights, felt very safe on our walk from the Train Station. I recommend this apartment to all. Thanks Mike, for your hospitality."
