A step back, allows you to admire its real grandeur and poetic beauty! A little hop, will have you immersed in the middle of it all.

This is what these apartments are in relation to Manhattan. Located just across the river it gives you the best of both worlds. It gives you the most beautiful view of Manhattan you can get. A view that you’ll be able to enjoy in the quietness of your own bedroom. Want to be there? No problem, just a little hop on a bus located right outside your door will have you in the heart of Manhattan in merely 15 minutes. The Ferry will take you there in about five.

You shouldn't get discouraged that these apartments are not in Manhattan itself. Actually, you'll have better access to Midtown Manhattan from these apartments than from some places in Manhattan itself. Private mini-buses into Manhattan, run all night, they drop you off and pick you up right in front of the house.

Beautiful apartment, highly exclusive neighborhood, magnificent views, only 15 minutes from Midtown Manhattan and such an affordable price! This is the place to be!

PLEASE NOTE, THIS IS A NON SMOKING APARTMENT

The reservations prices are for the two bedroom, if you are interested in the one bedroom please email me for a quote.

Most Amazing Views

  • 4 of 5

The view is better than a postcard. Balcony off the main bedroom overlooking the entire Manhattan skyline, Amazing! Beds were comfortable with plenty of space in a 2 bedroom 2nd floor home. Very convenient transit stop right out front ($3 shuttle or $3.50 city bus) that gets you to Times Square in 15 minutes. Convenient transit to get back at night as well leaving from the Bus Terminal on 8th and 42nd. A little noisy in the morning but not bad considering the location. Walking distance to liquor store and discount store with food for supplies at a value. Owner is very accommodating and easy to contact. Home is old with plenty of character despite the need for some repairs but sufficient for our needs. Enjoyed our 2nd stay at this home. Travelled with 20ish daughter and worked perfectly.

Location, location, location!

This apartment rental is absolute perfection if you are traveling to NYC. We were blown away by the incredible views from the living room, master bedroom, and balcony. Yes...balcony! We sipped coffee looking at the skyline from there every morning and enjoyed watching the sun go down in Manhattan several evenings. The apartment is spacious, with two bedrooms and a large bathroom. The shower never ran out of hot water! It could not be any easier to get into Manhattan, either. You hop on ANY bus right at the intersection in front of the house and for $3 a person they take you into Manhattan and drop you around 40th and 8th, in about 15 minutes.There is a subway station just two streets down and so much to do right there in Times Square! It couldn't have been any smoother. Easy to go into Manhattan, but the skyline view is fabulous if you just want to kick up your feet and stay in for the evening. Order pizza from Romano's and they will deliver to you in a short amount of time, even bringing plates! Ligia is a sweetheart and so easy to work with. There is a grocery store just a few blocks away that even has a laundromat in the building. I did our laundry and shopped for the week all in one short stop. Also, the cost for this rental is only about 2/3 of the least expensive Manhattan rentals, and this one comes with a parking spot, in case you drove. Really, it could not have been a better experience!

Spacious 2 bedroom waterfront

  • 5 of 5

Ligia was the most wonderful host I have ever dealt with. The minute I arrived, Ligia learned that I was very very sick with a horrible flu & she made sure I was ok and offered any help to get me better quickly. The apartment I stayed in was the second floor 2 bedroom and it was the most spacious apartment I've ever stayed in (I visit NY regularly and am used to tiny places). This was my first time staying over the Hudson in NJ & I will never stay in Manhattan again! It was perfect! The apartment had a gorgeous balcony off of the front bedroom which gives you the most amazing panoramic view of the Manhattan skyline! I was there for Christmas and New Years & the views were everything! It was hard to actually go places for the fact that I didn't want to leave my view! The apartment feels very homely and had everything you need, great kitchen appliances so that you can cook at home to save some money, Comfortable beds, a great shower. And it is so spacious, you could comfortably have a family of 5 stay here. Transport was fantastic as the private buses and NJ transit stop right our front every few minutes and for $3 will take you straight to Times Square within 10/15mins. And it's super easy to get back. There are a few supermarkets around, it's greys to just walk around weehawken and get familiar with what's around you, whatever you need is definitely in close proximity. There is nothing I can fault with my stay & I will definitely be back again soon. Ligia you are a beautiful soul! ❤️

A Place to Stay

  • 2 of 5

We loved our stay at this rental.

The pros: You are very close to New York. A very short and inexpensive (~$3) bus ride and you are in Times Square. The owners are wonderful and very helpful. The price and the city views are unbeatable! There is a place to park a rental car if needed.

The cons: the rental was very run down. There were pieces of the floor missing, a leak in the bathroom ceiling, the mattresses were old, the building is noisy (road/city noise), the bathroom was being renovated and not finished. The couch and chairs in the living room could use a good cleaning along with the floors and furniture. The rental could use a lot of TLC.

Overall we enjoyed our stay. Again the owner was great! She was responsive and very helpful.

Owner's Response: Dear Marty; Thank you for your feedback. Since the plan is to ultimately convert this into a year lease unfurnished apartment soon it does not pay to invest on new furniture. When I started doing this 10 years ago everything was brand new but unfortunately things get run down by people and time. Happy to say that the bathroom leak was taken care of. Furniture would be replace if continuation of short-term rentals is in the horizon but at this time it doesn't look like it is.

awesome

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time. The host went out of her way to make sure that we did. She even left flowers and candy upon our arrival for our daughters when she found out it was their birthdays and the reason for our vacation to the area. Everything was easy to get to and travel to the city... thank you for a fun and memorable time for everyone.....

Incredible!

  • 5 of 5

The panoramic views were breathtaking!!!! We are a family with 3 kids (ages 7,13,15) and traveled with my mother as well. We stayed on the main floor. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The linens were clean and the air conditioner worked great! This apartment had all the comforts of home, even a place to park the rental car. Ligia and Richard were both very accommodating and kind. It was extremely easy to catch the bus (right across the street) to go into the city. Richard also gave us great directions to easily get back from the city.

We stayed over the Fourth of July, the view of the fireworks from the front porch were amazing! Ligia's family came over for the fireworks, but it didn't impede our experience AT ALL! Everyone was so kind to us, but made sure to respect our privacy and we had more than enough room on the porch to see the fireworks and relax comfortably away from the crowds! It was a Fourth of July to remember!! We will definitely be back, Thanks Ligia and Richard!! - The Sullivan's
