****** newly renovated apartment in a three family house. This apartment is in the basement, but it is only 50% underground as the kitchen is leveled out with the back yard and the bedroom’s windows facing the street are leveled out with the sidewalk as you can see it from the pictures ****** the exterior entrance is still not finished, but it is in the process of being done.
This foxy underground apartment is located in union city, new jersey which is less than 5 miles away from midtown manhattan / times square / port authority bus terminal. Union city is a hidden treasure on the other side of the lincoln tunnel and it is approximately a 20-25 minute bus ride from our location ( except during rush hours 7:00 am - 9:00 am and 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm). The bus stop is only 1 block away from the apartment and the fare is $3.20, but if you buy a minimum of 10 tickets at a time, it will cost you $2.70. The buses run every 20 minutes and the last bus leaving the port authority bus terminal to the apartment is at 1:15 am monday - friday , 1:45 am on saturday and 12:40 am on sunday. In addition, there are shuttle buses running 24 hours, but leave you 17 blocks away from the apartment in the event that you need to travel after 1:45 am. Another option is to take the PATH train from New York to Hoboken (these trains run 24 hours) then take UBER for about $7- $10 (depending on the number of people) to our apartment and it will take you approximately 10 minutes to get there.
We are closer to midtown manhattan than Brooklyn, the bronx and most parts of queens.
You can enjoy the best of both worlds by staying in this apartment as you can enjoy new york all day long and come back to this safe, green and quiet neighborhood which is also very accessible to hoboken, the official home of the famous Carlo's bakery of cake boss and birth place of frank Sinatra.. There are buses going to hoboken one block away from the apartment and they run every 20 minutes. Walking distance to supermarket, liquor store, groceries, bakeries, diner, shops, parks, etc.
If you will be driving, you will need to park on the street (I will provide you with a visitor’s pass so you won't get any parking violation) or I might be able to let you park your vehicle in one of our properties nearby (5 blocks away) provided that the other guests don’t bring any vehicles.
Check in time is at 4:00 pm and Check out time is at 11:00 am, but we are very flexible as long as we don’t have any guests checking in and checking out on your arrival and departure date. If we do, we can always hold your bags.
An early check in can only be confirmed 2 days before your arrival and a late check out can be confirmed the day before your departure.
In the event of a cancellation, there will be a 50% refund (from the entire reservation amount) up until 1 week prior to arrival and all cancellations should be done through VRBO/HOMEAWAY. However, if we manage to re-rent the place for ALL the nights you have canceled, we can offer you a bigger refund to you than our cancellation policy dictates. The earlier you cancel the more chances we will have to find other guest. This cancellation policy supersedes any other one showing on any listing by VRBO/HOMEWAY.
