Informazioni sulla proprietà

3 camere, 1 bagno, 5-6 posti letto

Passo in un altro mondo in questo appartamento duplex su due piani superiori di un 140 anni vecchia casa vittoriana collina. Rilassatevi la sera con le luci della baia e il ponte di Verrazano fuori dalla finestra. Eppure sei a soli 20 minuti di discesa a piedi dal traghetto di Staten Island, il più grande free ride in tutto il mondo. La casa è circondata da un rigoglioso giardino a terrazze con alberi swing. Si scende dalla nostra collina isolata in centro di Staten Island, una società diversa, up-and-coming vero e proprio quartiere di New York con una comoda striscia di ristoranti e piccoli negozi.

Se avete lo spirito di avventura romantica e odi camere d'albergo troppo costoso, siamo in grado di rendere il vostro soggiorno a New York ancora più speciale, e conveniente.

Il traghetto per Manhattan: Il Staten Island Ferry è di gran lunga il modo più bello per entrare a Manhattan, una crociera di 25 minuti attraverso il porto. Si passa molto vicino alla Statua della Libertà e guardare i grattacieli crescono enorme come ci si avvicina. La barca corre 24/7, di solito ogni mezz'ora. Funziona più spesso nelle ore di punta, ogni ora molto tarda notte. Ed è GRATIS.

La passeggiata per il traghetto dalla nostra casa è una facile passeggiata in discesa. Ritornando si può scegliere di saltare un autobus si ferma 2-3, o un taxi per $ 5-7.

Staten Island: Se si rimane più di un paio di giorni, si consiglia di visitare le attrazioni di Staten Island in sé, di New York 'quartiere dimenticato.' Questi includono Snug Harbor, casa di riposo trasformata un museo del 19 ° secolo marinai e centro culturale, il Museo d'Arte Tibetano Jacques Marchais, e il museo Alice Austen, una bella casa sul lungomare dedicato a una donna fotografa pionieristica. La costa sud di Staten Island offre molte miglia di spiaggia sabbiosa e dalla passeggiata, se si vuole prendere un paio d'ore fuori da essere un turista. L'isola è famosa per la sua cucina italiana, ma gruppi di immigrati più recenti stanno facendo il loro contributo pure. Troverete i prezzi per i ristoranti, come l'alloggio, molto più ragionevole rispetto a Manhattan.

Adequate Place to Stay

  • 3 of 5

I was so hoping to write a five star review, but I could not bring myself to do so. I think it is important to give a balanced review of the rental.

Pros: Great location! Easy to get to & from the Staten Island Ferry and parking was fantastic. Never had a problem getting around and there were various amenities (grocery store, restaurants, the public library -if you need to print- in the area to meet your needs. The owners are also responsive, friendly, and provided good customer service.

Cons: I read through all of the reviews and the responses from the owners so I thought some of the concerns were addressed. I assumed incorrectly and there are a couple that are of importance to note.

1) Only one of the three beds has a frame. The other two beds are a mattress and a box spring on the floor. Our children slept fine, but my husband and I slept ok. We did not get restful sleep and that was due to this and the second con.

2) For our family, having a sense of safety is high on the priority list. Although there are two doors for the main entrance, there is one simple lock which we used to lock the exterior door. No other locks were on the interior or exterior door. When I asked about the locks, the owner noted having trouble in the past with renters and the locks so they have been removed. I tried to come to terms with this response, but I can not. By not having an additional security feature, it prompted us to all sleep on the top level as we wanted to be closer to our children (hence the sleeping on the bed with no frame).

3) The bathroom drain was not clean. We try very hard to keep things orderly and as clean as possible. On our last day, I went to clean out the drain of the tub only to find there was a rather large, long clump of hair and debris that did not belong to us. I literally gagged while throwing it away. It is not possible for us to have made that large of a clump within our stay and was not fond of cleaning up after others in this manner.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay & had an amazing time in NYC. We only used the rental for sleep & showering so it wasn't so frustrating to have the above situation or experience occur. With that said, our deal breaker in returning to this location is the fact that there is not a secure enough lock on the exterior door and no lock on the interior door. When traveling, peace of mind is essential.

Hope these cons are taken into consideration and adjustments are made.

Beautiful property and super sweet owners!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Staten Island! I visited from Florida with my family. We were very grateful for the affordable cost for the amount of space! The walk from the ferry was great for me and my friends (who are in our 20s). But, I would definitely recommend utilizing the taxi service from the Staten Island Ferry for those who aren't very active. IE my mother did not enjoy the walk as much! Thank you to the owners for letting us stay in your beautiful historic home!

Not as advertised - shabby.

  • 1 of 5

“Lush, terraced garden” is a heavily overgrown messy property. Description of house and neighborhood is greatly exaggerated. Two separate, steep staircases inside (32 steps); 31 steps outside. Street is one-way with parking only on one side so we parked several houses away, then dragged luggage up all the steps. Thrift store furniture and drapes at windows. Upstairs bedrooms have mattresses placed ON FLOOR. Dangerous electrical conditions exist. Circuit breakers are overloaded, with only 1 breaker for outlets in house, which is where all the AC units were plugged into. Individual AC units could not be run simultaneously without blowing circuit. Missing window screens meant we could not open windows to help cool rooms (temperatures were in the ’90’s). Non-functional bathroom fan. Shower faucet fell off when turned. Upstairs TV not connected for use except to play DVD’s. Obvious dust accumulated under living room couches. Property owners have not invested a single dime to make this property safe or in any way inviting. VRBO should investigate this property before allowing it to be rented again.

Risposta del proprietario: We apologize for some of the conditions this guest experienced, and have taken steps to correct them. We hired a new cleaner, cleaned up the garden, and are arranging for a new caretaker. We did repairs in the bathroom and completely rebuilt the front steps. We always have someone on call to address guests’ concerns during their visit. BUT, guests have to think themselves about what kind of experience they want from New York. Yes, we have a lot of steps (maybe not 63 of them), but the reward is a spectacular view across the city from our top floor. We do try to furnish in the style of our unique 19th-century property, while also keeping costs down so we can offer our attractive rates. We do have one large TV, and don’t see the need for a second one. If you would really rather be in a standard, tiny hotel room, then this is probably not the place for you. If you want a special New York house, big enough for a family, among the rooftops and treetops, then you may love it. (The people who stayed just 10 days earlier gave us five stars.) We have owned our house for eight years now without any electrical problems, and had our system inspected by several licensed electricians. (One of them lived with us for a few months after Hurricane Sandy.) True, our Victorian house was not built for four room air conditioners. But if you shut off the living room AC when you go to bed and turn on the bedroom units, as we should suggest, that should solve the problem. We value feedback from our guests and always want to improve. But this may also have been a bad fit.

Excellent and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

I, my wife and our two year old son stayed for 2 nights at this nice property. Hosts were very considerate, who allowed for early check in and late check out considering our flight was late. It's very spacious and nice house, from house you can see very good view at night of the bridge. The house has 3 bedrooms, Helen also provided extra mattress, toys for our son, also lot of extra towels were kept. To and from ferry, one can take a taxi, costs about 6 or 7$, better to take this rather than bus, because bus costs 2.5$ per person. Staten island ferry is very relaxing, we took ferry the day we reached this property in the evening. Then next day as well, we took ferry in late evening, so while coming back, at night you get a night view of Manhattan. So take evening ferry, ferry drops you at battery park, where you can have a nice view of water along with sunset. Near the property, specifically we liked Tony's pizzaria, very delicious food. Overall it was a very good stay at the property.

It's not what it seems

  • 3 of 5

On my arrival I didn't expect the neighborhood to be so under kept. And it was sort of a challenge to locate the house. Once I discovered that it was behind a wall of stairs. Once I got to the top of the wall. I realized there was more stairs to get to the apartment. Then I enter the apartment to discover another flight of stairs and the living quarters of the apartment. It was smaller than what I expected. Bedroom on the main floor was on large enough for a full bed only. No walking space. The livingroom was spacious due to lack of furniture. Kitchen was small. Bedroom was ok. Then the other two rooms where up another flight of stairs that I felt that was too small for my child to climb up without assistance. Those beds were on the floor without a bed frame. But it was clean and organized. It was differently a different experience but yet I did enjoy the island and food.

Risposta del proprietario: Yes, we have to admit there are a lot of steps. Come prepared. As far as finding the house, its "tucked-away" quality is one of its charms. We provide explicit directions, which solves the problem for most guests. Anyone who thinks our place is small has never been in a Midtown Manhattan hotel room .... We offer living room, eat-in kitchen, plus three bedrooms, though admittedly one of them is quite small. Hard to do better than that in NYC.

dirty, smelly and unsafe

  • 1 of 5

One of the rest things we noticed upon arrival was the smell in the house: a garbage smell, an unclean smell. The rental was unclean to say the least.

There were no fire-extinguishers and there is no escape route in case of fire: an unsettling idea.

The kitchen was incomplete and filthy. No kitchentowels present to name something. A very wobbly kitchentabel.

Bathroom: filthy, with 5 towels for 3 people staying 3 nights and 1 roll of toiletpaper.....

This rental oozes neglect, filth and screams for renovation and screams even louder for safety.

With lloud shouting and cussing we heard at night on the street, and all the debry and garbage all around the neighborhood, this was a once and never again place to stay for us.

Risposta del proprietario: We found the tone of this review surprising.. We made the house available to this guest a few hours before check-in time, at his request. He called several times during his three-day stay, and mentioned no complaints. We have a caretaker who lives a few blocks away and can come fix any problems. We usually keep plenty of towels in an upstairs closet, aside from some in the bathroom, and extra toilet paper in the kitchen closet. We are sorry if there was not enough TP on this occasion. As for fire safety, our living room, kitchen and one bedroom are located just one floor above the street door, with a wide staircase leading down. The kitchen windows also open onto a terraced roof. For the bedrooms one floor above, that we have an expandable ladder in a closet that can go out the window in case of fire. We apologize for not putting a sign on the closet. Our house is in a row of eight Victorians on an elevated sidewalk above street level (and trash that goes out twice a week). Our immediate neighbors are the 75 members of the Ganas Community, who have owned their houses for decades, and are entirely committed to keeping the b lock beautiful and safe. You will see them tending their flowers or sitting on the porch under our century-old trees on a warm evening. We find our house safe, comfortable and beautiful. So do the large majority of our guests.
