  • Just what our family needed!!!

    "We had a family trip with seven people ranging from ages 4-57 and this was perfect for us!!! The owners gave us all the info that we needed ahead of time and even checked in on us the first night!!! There was enough room for everyone, and it was great for taking the ferry and bus systems. Thanks again!!! We will definitely stay again if the opportunity comes."

  • First visit to NYC & with kids

    "Very happy with the stay at Robin's rental. Robin was a pleasure to rent from. Welcomed us warmly...and then gave us complete privacy. Never even heard them upstairs. The home itself--very much like staying at your aunts home. We rented the first floor-- a 2 bedroom unit of a large 3 story home for 6 nights. 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 10 &12). Very quiet place...so much better than a hotel for a light sleeper! Charming old fashioned home with high ceilings and a nice mix of modern (wifi, flat screen, updated kitchen, new comfy sofa, a/c) and traditional or antique furnishings. Everything was very clean and good working order. Kitchen well stocked beyond the bare bones usually found in vacation rental kitchens. Although I did not locate a cookie sheet, betting Robin would have provided one if I had asked. New mattresses the day we arrived which we found very comfortable, but are firm. If you prefer squishy beds, pack a topper. Queen bedroom spacious. Kids bedroom was super tiny but fine for 2 kids. They liked the twin trundle and preferred the 2 twins to sharing a hotel bed. Only thing we lacked was a 2nd bathroom, but no different than most hotel rooms. Loved having full kitchen/dining/living room and *free* parking in front of the house all week. Never an issue with parking. New key foods supermarket nearby...but you must drive. Smaller convenience stores nearby (walkable) but we preferred the key foods supermarket. Neighborhood walk from the house to the ferry takes 5 - 10 minutes & always felt safe. Ferry is super convenient, free, and runs every 20-30 minutes. Never waited longer than 10 minutes. About a 20 minute ferry ride. Always able to get a seat, and gorgeous views from the ferry. First time taking the ferry over we found the subway station just outside the ferry terminal bought our 7 day subway passes...and we were off. We explored most of lower and mid manhattan and brooklyn from the rental. Highly recommend seeing a staten island Yankees game while here. Wish we had more days to explore staten island itself, and the other bouroughs. Next trip!! We would rent here again, and if the kids ask for another NYC vacation we will try to rent from Robin again. Next time, we may opt to rent the small downstairs apartment too to give the kids a bit more space and gain a 2nd bathroom. Nearly perfect! Kids had a fabulous and memorable NYC trip. Thank you Robin - we had a very enjoyable stay."

  • Wonderful ten days in NYC on charming Staten Island...

    "We are a family of four - two small boys under 5; and have just spent ten lovely days in New York - all on Staten Island at the Victorian Villa. Linda was there to greet us and was most accommodating - the apartment was pristine and very well set up - more than we could have imagined. It is the little touches like the hardwood floors, linen, well-appointed kitchen etc that set this place apart. Linda and Neil were always on-hand to assit with our touristy enquiries and were extremely knowledgeable and willing to assist. The area is quaint and has a lot of character. If you are happy to immerse yourself in the neighbourhood, which we did, you'll love it. Whether it is watching the Staten Island Yankees play a game at the water-front stadium overlooking Manhattan, eating at the local restaurants (the Spanish place is phenomenal) or just chatting to the local folk. We took the ferry almost every day from the house and it was a breeze - a short walk to the terminal and a free ferry to Manhattan. You will never tire of the superb views. All in all - a great stay and this apartment is highly recommended for those who are seeking a coomon-sense alternative to a hotel room..."

  • Thanksgiving 2013

    "We stayed at this rental property when traveling to NY to visit family for Thanksgiving. We found Lydia's home to be very homey, comfortable and inviting. The hardwood floors are beautiful and the property well maintained. The track lighting in the living room was very pretty and a nice touch. This is the ideal place to stay if you want to spend time in the city as it is very close to the ferry terminal. Riding the ferry to the city is an awesome experience as you have great views of the city skyline and the Statue of Liberty. Lydia was very accommodating and ensured we had everything we needed. It was wonderful returning to the house after a long day in the cold or rainy city. The house was very warm and a nice place to relax. There are great deli's to try in Staten Island while you stay at the rental. We highly recommend Ariemmas Italian Deli as well as dining at Mike's Diner in Staten Island if you stay at this rental. It was also only a short drive from Staten Island to Hoboken NJ to visit the Cake Boss Bakery. Overall we had a great time and a great experience staying here and would recommend to others."
