About Martin Marino
This is my fifth year as a vacation rental owner, I know you will enjoy your stay.
Martin Marino purchased this House in 2015
Why Martin Marino chose Downtown Niagara Falls
We are within walking distance of everything and in a safe neighborhood.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
It was so easy to check in and out. Martin was friendly and helpful.
Chose to stay in VRBO because wanted room for two teenagers. Didn’t know which side of Niagra to stay on . Chose the American side. Industry has left the area so didn’t expect It to be so closed down . However, this VRBO was nice , clean , and helpful owner. Was easy to walk to the Rainbow Bridge and walk to Canada every day . Our one day tour of seeing both was easy and we were picked up at the VRBO. I just like VRBO’s instead of hotels to really see the area. I did enjoy the trip to Niagra.
July 4th weekend
After looking the place up on the map, I will admit that I wondered at the property description saying it was within walking distance to the attractions...for my family. (We are not the most energetic family at times! Lol) However, I was pleasantly surprised when we got there and started walking around. The Falls were really within walking distance, even for us! Everything on the NY side really was. And you can walk over to the Canada side as well from the property. Martin was very helpful in answering questions and making suggestions while we were there. We enjoyed our stay immensely. If traveling there on July 4th, expect traffic. We did not have any issues on any other day. Checking out of Martin's property was easier than most, for which we were grateful since we were leaving about 5am. Thank you Martin!
Not what I thought
Martin was very friendly. There is a code for the front door so you don’t need a key which is very nice. When we got there the front door was wide open which concerned me. The house could be really cute but it was filthy dirty. Martin had mentioned that he had a dog so there were muddy paw prints all over kitchen floor it looked like the place had not been dusted in a VERY LONG TIME. The front entrance looked like it had salt built up from the winter months. The neighborhood was less pleasing also not a very good area, but how do you know that when booking a place.
Great location, quaint older home
We really enjoyed our stay and our host Martin. This is an older home in a culturally diverse neighborhood. We didn't have any problems in the area. The home was clean, well stocked, and Martin was very responsive when we had questions. Beds were comfy too. The location is super great for access to the Falls. You can walk to the aquarium easily and only a short drive to other areas. I recommend the $3 trolley hop on/off. This is a really nice way to get around and hear the history of the Falls. The Anchor Cafe in the Holiday Inn was great (home of the original Buffalo wings) and Main Street cafe was a little gem we found for breakfast. The Buffalo airport is about a 40 min drive, and we had no problems getting there for our departure. Would definitely recommend.
A great alternative to local hotel chains!
This is a little gem nestled in the heart of Niagara Falls. It's within walking distance of all the attractions, yet somehow feels away from it all at the same time. It was cozy, clean and comfortable, and had some good space to spread out. Martin is a wonderful host. Being a 'local' himself, he could recommend places to visit that aren't always in the tour books! He was also VERY flexible and accommodating with our check-in and check-out times. All in all, I highly recommend a stay at this sweet apartment!
