Why Ursula and Carlos chose Union City
Manhattan is wonderfully hectic. Enjoy the pulse all day, but come back to tranquility only 15 minutes away.

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!
Perfectly situated place in a quiet and peaceful area, yet close enough to New York.
This is a pretty, peaceful, little and cute place. Everything you could possibly need is here, from snacks, to toiletries, bedding, movies, comfort, flowers, pleasant scents, etc..
The host has done an excellent job of securing comfortable accommodations and leaves superb communication notes so you know how to get around town and to and from New York. This is much appreciated. We truly enjoyed our stay.
Quirky basement apartment in great location.
My daughter & I spend 8 nights here as our base to visit NY city, our first visit to the States. We arrived at midnight and had no problem with the detailed instructions Ursula had given on accessing the apartment. After a long days travelling we arrived to background music and lit lamps which made it very welcoming, we really appreciated the french stick, cheese, ham, orange juice and snacks.
The bus info left made it easy to use the local bus service and we found the neighbourhood to be friendly and safe. The beds were comfortable and we slept well and enjoyed the soft towels and robes. We made use of the kitchen for breakfast including the coffee percolator before starting our day exploring the city. The apartment has all the comforts of home and Ursula goes out of her way to ensure your stay is a wonderful experience even driving us to the ferry stop for Ellis Island which was a highlight. We had a few days of light showers and the provided umbrellas came in handy. Union City was a great experience, New York was vibrant and exciting and everything we thought it would be. We even extended our time to stay an extra 3 nights in the city itself. Thank you Ursula and Carlos for your wonderful hospitality and making our trip memorable.
I want to highly recocommend Ursala's and Carlos' home!
The house is located in the back in a wonderful neighborhood about 20 minutes from NYC by bus! It was so cute inside and had everything you could need and then some! Ursala had snacks, breakfast and everything you could possibly need to get you through until you figure things out! She is such a kind person and treated my son and I wonderful! I will always appreciate the extra she did for us! I would definitely love to come back and stay with them in the future for sure!
Great time in the city!
My best friend and I traveled to NYC for a week for her birthday. We rented Ursula and Carlos's place. It was just what we needed. It was clean and cozy. It was in a great location. Just minutes from the city. Ursula left us bus tickets for the first day so we could get into NYC with no problem. She had everything we needed, including tourist maps on hand. Overall the stay was great. I will stay here again if ever traveling to NYC.
