Reviews of this property
Wir waren mit 5 Personen zwischen 57 und 67 Jahren dort und haben das Gesamte als Ferienwohnung gebucht. Zuerst möchte ich das Positive anführen. Zu Beginn war Bozena sehr freundlich und gab uns auch viele Tipps. Von den "weissen Bussen" nach Manhattan bis hin zu einem tollen Lokal, in dem wir fast jeden Abend zu Gast waren. Auch der Tipp nach North Bergen war eine Wucht.
Dann jedoch merkte sie, dass einige von rauchten - natürlich nur ausserhalb des Hauses, da wir daheim auch nicht in der Wohnung rauchen. Das hat ihr gar nicht gefallen. Uns hat nicht gefallen, und das hat unsere Bewertung geschmälert, das wir gar keine Ferienwohnung hatten, sondern nur eine Erlaubnis zur Mitbewohnung hatten. Die 3 Schlafzimmer hatten eine tolle Grösse. Das Badezimmer auf dieser Etage war von den Zimmern jedoch nur zu erreichen, in dem man durch andere Zimmer ging. Das zweite Badezimmer wurde auch von Bozena benutzt. In der Küche gab es einen sehr schönen Tisch, allerdings nur mit 4 Stühlen. Für den 5. Gast wurde ein Hocker gebracht. Der auf dem Foto ersichtliche Balkon durfte nicht benutzt werden. Der Backofen war dreckig, die Mikrowelle defekt und im Kühlschrank bekamen wir einen winzigen Bereich für unsere Frühstücksdinge zugewiesen. Wenn also die 3 Schlafzimmer gleichzeitig belegt werden, hat keiner einen Bereich für sich mit gleichzeitiger Badnutzung. Schade, denn ansonsten war die Lage sehr günstig und angenehm.

Zimmer und Badezimmer -ok :/
Fantastic host, wonderful location and excellent room and facilities!
On first arrival Bozena greeted us and gave us excellent money saving and helpful tips about New York and the surrounding area - especially about the bus that costs little and gets you into the city quickly! The room was a great size and had an ensuite bathroom (with towels included). The spacious room was an ideal location and provided an excellent place to stay when coming to NYC! Would recommend highly!
I booked this room for my boyfriend and I weeks in advance for 2 nights for our short vacation in New York City. We drove in, spent the night, and I noticed the sign out front said "no parking from 10am-noon". So at 10am, I moved my car into the driveway, recalling that the listing for the room said there is driveway parking when available. I didn't want to bother the host and figured it would be fine there for 2 hours. I reasoned that if we needed to move it during those 2 hours, no big deal - someone would let us know.
Boy was I wrong - this apparently was a very huge deal. The host started yelling at us - "Did you park in the driveway?! Move it this instant!!!" My boyfriend and I were scared - we started scrambling around, looking for our socks. I finally found the socks with her yelling through our door again "Move it!! This is not how adults act!" That's the only insult I can remember off the top of my head. She ranted on, "There's no smoking either allowed in the room!" (We are 30 years old, and neither of us smoke.)
Now I'll admit, looking back, I should have asked if it was okay to park in the driveway, but the host acted extremely inappropriately and erratically. Why couldn't she just speak respectfully to us? Yelling and chastising is not hospitable, professional behavior.
Needless to say, we felt uncomfortable and unsafe, and snuck out immediately (afraid of another confrontation). Our trip was dampered by having to find last minute accommodations, and the whole experience was demoralizing. I have been an enthusiastic guest for similar sites as this for years, but I the experience may make me turn back to hotels.
I site and/or host would not issue a refund, which is poor guest protection from problems like this.
2 thumbs up!! Bozena is a great and caring host. Before arrival she posted me detailed directios from the airport to her address. I arrived fairly late but she took the time to show me everything I needed and gave me some travel tips fir NYC as well as NJ. Home is clean, safe and comfortable. Description of room and photos are accurate. 5 min walk to bus station. Bus takes about 20-30min to times square (depending on traffic) and run regularly. Definitly 5 stars. Thank you.
We had a super great time at Bozena! She gave us great advice and what is worth seeing and where it is best shopping. We'd sleep with her again! :) With the "white" buses we have been in a few minutes in the middle of Manhattan. It was really great!
Accommodation exactly as described in the photos! Beautifully light and spacious!
All the best to you Bozena and many thanks!
Jenny and Ben (ny) :)
Wir hatten einen super tollen Aufenthalt bei Bozena! Sie gab uns tolle Tipps und was Sehenswert ist und wo man am besten shoppen geht. Wir würden sofort wieder bei ihr schlafen! :) Mit den "weißen" Bussen sind wir in wenigen Minuten mitten in Manhatten gewesen. Es war wirklich super!
Unterkunft genau wie auf den Fotos beschrieben! Schön hell und geräumig!
Ganz viele liebe Grüße an dich Bozena und vielen lieben Dank!

I had an awesome time at Bozena's place. She's a lovely, motherly, caring woman with an amazing personality. She made me feel totally welcome (with a bear hug) when I first arrived at her place. The blue room is very neat with a big size, comfortable bed (suitable for two), very cosy and bright, en-suite with a very clean bathroom/neatly arranged towels. The air-conditioner works fine (perfect for the summer heat in NJ/NY)The house is entirely clean with a lovely kitchen. The location of the house is very central. The bus station is about 3 mins walk from the house. The 51 Bus takes you directly to Journal square (approx 8 mins) where you can take the path train(s) to Hoboken (One of my favorite places), NY uptown/downtown, world trade center & Newark - Totally convenient for tourists since most of the main tourist attractions are located within those areas. The path trains operate 24/7 so you can get back to the house anytime. Alternatively, you can take the bus going to NY (approx 35 mins due to the frequent passenger pickup's) from the bus station. The buses and the trains are fully air-conditioned so no need to worry about the summer heat. There are grocery stores few meters from the house where you could pick up groceries. I intend going back to NY (God willing) towards the end of the year and would definitely reside at Bozena's place. Would recommend for anyone wishing to have a quiet, neat, relaxed and centralized place.
