The space

Private and entire apartment is on the 2nd floor of a 200 year old brick brownstone style dwelling. There are many wonderful upgrades that mix darling old world charm with contemporary features. Window air conditioners are installed in each bedroom and the living room. The apartment is a cozy, clean, and a safe home away from home. This is a small apartment with fast commute to and from NYC in a vibrant and busy area with terrific restaurants. It is a great solution for mid sized groups looking for peace and quiet after being out all day. Hosting more than 6 is crowded and can host up to 9. The building and apartment are not new construction.

Bedroom number 1 has a queen bed and a single bed. Bedroom #2 has one queen bed. There is a sofa-bed in the common living room/kitchen area and converts to two proper single beds. The only bathroom is on the small side.

Guest access

Second floor apartment in a walk-up. I host remotely and a lockbox, attached to the black iron gate outside, allows guests to freely check themselves in after 4pm and out before 9am. The online photos of the entrance and the lockbox will help with the check in process, especially after dark.

Wifi, Internet, large flat Screen TV with 30+ channels, heat, hot water, electricity, and air conditioning. Walk one block for laundry.

LAUNDRY: Carolina's Laundromat, 518 Jersey Ave, 07302.

Interaction with guests

I host remotely. There is a lockbox outside for guests to freely check themselves in after 3pm and out before 11am. I respond quickly to txt, calls, and emails. Please freely ask questions and let me know what recommendations are needed.

Other things to note

Let us know if your group plans to arrive after the 3pm check in time or earlier than the 11am checkout time.

You are arriving to PORTAL TO NYC, located very near 350 Varick Street, 07302 between Wayne and Christopher Columbus Blvd. in Jersey City.

This is ideal for peace and comfort after being out all day. Neighbors require quiet. Please consider that noise and parties are not tolerated when booking. I want your needs to fit well.

The lockbox is attached to the black iron railing at your left when facing the entrance. Familiarize yourself with the online photos to facilitate an easier checkin especially at night.

Please have a look around and let us know that everything is in good working order, otherwise, it is assumed all is well and good and a glowing review is on the way:)

You might wish to get rid of trash at some point. Deliver to the tree in front of the building. The gated area next to the stoop belong to the neighbor. Please do not add trash there.

We had a fantastic stay at Viktoria's place, and she is an excellent host. Communication was easy and seamless with her from reservation through checkout, and she was so helpful in accommodating our needs with two small children, e.g. letting me store breast milk in the freezer after checkout until we were ready to leave the city. The apartment is in an ideal location -- right in the heart of downtown Jersey City and all the great establishments in the area, and super close to the Grove Street PATH station, which made it a breeze to get in and out of NYC. Even though the apartment is small, it's set up well, and our family of four was very comfortable. Viktoria provided ample towels and linens, and the beds in the master bedroom were very comfortable. The bed in the smaller bedroom had a harder mattress and made noise with every toss and turn, but it was nice to have two queen-size beds in the place. The kitchen was well stocked with all the essential cooking and cleaning implements as well as spices and condiments. Viktoria has added a nice design touch to the place, and we appreciated how clean it was. All in all, great place and great host. We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit the area.

Great area for local restaurants and travel options. Viktoria was very responsive to any questions we had. Apartment had clean and luxurious towels and linens. Great little deli on the corner and wonder bagels a block away worth a visit.

It's a good place for a group of seven to crash right off NYC.

Viktoria is really present and helps beyond our best expectations. The place is near the public transport. If you go by car, be aware that you are going to leave the vehicle in a parking lot due to local rules. But there are plenty of those near there.

There was plenty of space in the apartment and many beds, definitely a good choice for a reasonable price.

This 2- bedroom/1- bath apartment was perfect for our 4 adults. We enjoyed making breakfast each morning before setting out for a day of sightseeing and visiting family. The location is walking distance to Path train, restaurants and the Hudson River with the twinkling views of Mid Town. Jersey City is vibrant and appealing to all ages and stages of life. I will definitely book this location on my next visit.

I like to provide a welcoming environment to travelers from abroad and within. In addition to standards of clean bedding, towels, and bathroom essentials, there is an underlying theme dedicated to our global environment. There are original artworks about the environment by local artisans, an eclectic interior design, and eco friendly cleaning, recycling, and energy practices.
