About this listing
*Families & Groups* Entire apartment, 1 BR, 1 bath. 2 queen beds, 2 sofa-beds, equipped kitchen, walk to subway (Grove PATH) & 7 min ride to NYC. Garden Level. Historic and eclectic with many improvements. Rates Vary. Charming and cozy!
Private and entire apartment is on the 1st floor garden level in a 200 year old brick brownstone style dwelling. There are many wonderful upgrades that mix darling old world charm with contemporary features. The air conditioner is a window unit and installed in the one large bedroom. This is an urban NYC style apartment and not a fancy hotel or a new construction type of environment. If you are looking for a palace experience, please continue looking for a better fit. The apartment is a cozy, clean, and safe home away from home in mixed community. It is a stone's throw from NYC in a vibrant neighborhood with terrific restaurants. The apartment is not considered below ground level, tho, it is garden level and there is a parking spot in front of the apartment reserved for the full time family living in the building. It is a good solution for mid sized groups looking for peace and quiet after being out all day. Hosting more than 5 would be crowded but can host up to 9.
There is one large bedroom with two queen beds and double sofa-bed. The common area shares the kitchen and living room. The dining table seats 6. The couch folds out into a king sized bed that that has great support, built specifically for sleeping comfort for the extra guests. The only bathroom is on the small side and situated under a staircase which means the ceiling has a bit of a slope. There are window air-conditioning units.
Downstairs unit (not up). I host remotely and a lockbox allows guests to freely check themselves in after 4pm and out before 9am.
Wifi, Internet, flat Screen TV's with 30 channels, heat, hot water, electricity, window unit air conditioning, stocked kitchen, and street parking.

Interaction with guests
I host remotely. There is a lockbox outside for guests to freely check themselves in after 4pm and out before 9am. 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 4pm check in time or earlier than the 9am checkout time.
You are arriving to SIGHTS TO NYC, located very near 214 Fifth Street, 07302 between Erie and Manilla in Jersey City. Checkin time is after 3pm. The apartment is in an historic wood frame walkup.
This is ideal for peace and comfort after being out all day. Neighbors insist on 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 next to the parking spot. 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 expected:)
You might wish to get rid of trash in the event that it builds up. Deliver to the bins behind the gate at the front of the building.

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.
