Very very spacious room and bathrooms and huge common living and dining rooms, complete amenities and really nice sheets for bed and bath. Basic breakfast is provided in the pantry/fridge and kitchen has more that what you need to make your own meal (it even has a coffee grinder and waffle griller!). Minor improvement area is the cleaner arrangement who comes only every 3 days. As bedroom is in the basement (we stayed at the guest room) , more frequent air sanitizing/spray will help keep it from smelling like an "enclosed closet" (can't keep the fan open while you are out in the city). But other than that, my small family of 3 will definitely come back! Yolanda was a gracious host (and quick to reply) and so was her assistant Crystal.
Hello Yods, Thank you for your kind review. As I was not present at your check-in, I would like to address your suggestions for improvement. Just for clarification the Guest Room is located on the garden floor(ground floor), we do have a basement which is located below the garden floor, a basement is located below ground and is usually not use for living in these type of building. We are a vacation rental, we can offer the guests maid service for fee, we usually offer it to guests staying for longer periods(most guests tend to opt -out of it)for shorter stays such as yours for three nights we usually don't offer it. For the bedroom being"enclosed closet" they are far being a closet, they are very large rooms with ceiling fan, vents above the doors and the entire unit is central air and heat. We do spray at end of each cleaning. I am sorry you had to encountered these minor unpleasantries, we welcome your suggestions and will work to improve them as much as we can to make yours and future guests stays enjoyable. Sincerely yours, Yolanda

Chambre située au calme très spacieuse avec cour privative. Magnifique salle de bain avec baignoire balnéo. La maison est typique (comme dans les films !!!) et c'est très agréable, nous avons utilisé la cuisine et la salle à manger et même concocté des petits plats. Tout est à notre disposition vu que la propriétaire n'occupe pas la maison mais réside à quelques pas de là. Nous serions bien resté plus longtemps !!

We were a group of 7 and had a great time in the apartment and in NY. Yolanda is very nice, pleasant and helpful. She gave us information about the area and how to get around NY. Apartment was very clean and had all the furniture and amenities we needed. Beds were super comfortable. Apartment is located about two blocks from a subway station and there are supermarkets and restaurants in the area, good location. I highly recommend it!

This B&B was easy to reach from my arrival in Newark, N. J. Took the shuttle to Port Authority and then the Subway. Follow Ms Chang's instructions and Walla I arrived Very quiet which is my perference. A beautiful kitchen for coffee and meals if I wanted that, but I chose to eat out and to walk to places of interest. Subway is so easy. You'll enjoy the clean and comfort of your room.
