Our beautifully appointed one bedroom with a view of the park and with lots of natural light is truly a sanctuary! It contains a French antique bed, large California closet, a sofa, and a table that can be used as a desk, or vanity table.

The space

The beautifully appointed space is comprised of a 2 bedroom, 1 bath condo with dishwasher, stainless steel appliances, an eat-in kitchen, and hardwood floors. When you enter the space, you are immediately reminded of walking into a gallery.

Guest access

Guests will have access to amenities such as washer/dryer, and entire kitchen.

Parking access: Regarding parking, a permit is required in the town of North Bergen. For daily use, or short term stays, the cost of a visitor's permit is $2/day. For long term stays, it's $30/month. You can settle this minor charge with me via Square, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), or your bank's "Send Money" option. If you don't need a receipt for tax purposes, cash works fine as well. The way it works is that I buy the permit that supports the number of days of your stay, and you hang that permit in your car's rear view mirror.

Interaction with guests

Minimal interaction with guests, particularly on the weekend, as the host has a super busy schedule. However, I am just a phone call or text away, and I will respond promptly.

Other things to note

Our home is within walking distance to eateries that support the international culture that makes up North Bergen. Take a stroll along Broadway or Palisades/Bergenline, and sample the flavor of the culture.

If you are open to biking (you may borrow one of the 2 bikes we have), you can travel along Boulevard East, and eat along the walkway, take in the beautiful New York skyline, or travel down the hill to the water's edge, and sample the variety of restaurants that feature the popular American culinary flavors.

Because we can agree to create a harmonious environment together, as we are both living in "our" home, I will create with you the distinction of harmony...

Harmony 1: My grandmother used to spot clean daily, and do a thorough cleaning every Saturday. Though I don't suggest cleaning every Saturday, I do suggest taking a cloth with cleaning solution to wipe down surfaces that you use. Because our quarters are close, I would like for you to spot clean your areas that you touch or use immediately after use.

Harmony 2: Power clean the tub, basin, toilet after every shower use: the cleaning supplies are located in the washroom. Simply take 5-10 minutes after you shower and complete your regimen, don the rubber gloves, and clean the tub, basin, and wipe down the toilet and floor. There's nothing like a sparkling washroom on a continual basis!

Harmony 3: Power clean the stove, countertops, and keep the sink free from soiled dishes or food particles after every cooking or food prep event. The cleaning supplies are located under the kitchen sink. Simply take 5-10 minutes after you cook or while you are cooking and complete your regimen, don the rubber gloves, and clean kitchen sink, counter tops, stove top, floor (if you are a messy food prep chef), and fridge (if you are prone to spills). There's nothing like a neat & tidy kitchen on a continual basis!

Harmony 4: Communicate communicate communicate all that is on your mind. Though you are a guest, you do have the right to voice your needs. Let's be sure we establish times we should confer about matters of business, or just shoot me a text. If I'm not teaching, I will respond immediately.

Harmony 5: If you use the last of something and it's a common area item we share, such as toilet paper, let me know right away. There are times where I'm super busy and I'm on auto pilot. Just shoot me a reminder if we are on the last roll...

Harmony 6: Please, no wild parties or overnight guests. The walls are thin...

Harmony 7: Feel free to create a warm & inviting atmosphere during your stay: bring in fresh flowers, potpourri, a plant or 2, a scented candle, and even incense, if you so desire.

Yvonne is the best host you can imagine. She is the sweetest woman, and she will do a lot to make your stay feel very comfortable. I had the best time staying here for 3 months. The room is big and cozy. The kitchen is not very big but it has everything you need to prepare every meal. If you don't mind that you have to spend between 30-45 min, if you want to go to Manhattan, then Yvonne's place is the best.

Yvonne is one of the nicest people I've ever met. She was very accommodating and went above and beyond.

Yvonne was wonderful! She was very responsive and answered all of my questions, even allowing us to view her room before we booked it. And, the room was absolutely beautiful, as was her home! It was wonderfully-decorated and very homey. It made you just want to settle in and not leave. Finally, the neighborhood was great and extremely close to New York (without having to pay the New York prices).

I stayed in North Bergen for almost a month so I could explore NYC. It easily accesses the city by both bus and ferry. Yvonne was so nice, I always felt welcome and she is very easy to talk to. The room is big and comfortable. The neighbourhood is great! People are friendly and there are great restaurants just up the street. If you want a less expensive alternative to staying in the city then I recommend staying with Yvonne. : )

Yvonne is a very well educated and inspirational woman, her story is amaizing, her presence is very positive and calming. I was departed with a wonderful book given to me by Yvonne of great recipes that might just motivate me to one day attempt to cook. Likewise, her son is very well behaved and polite. Her home is very nicely decorated and definitely embodies her personality, very calming and artistic. She very kindly made a space for me in the bathroom with my name on it which i think was a very sweet touch. There is a love stories book in the room i highly recommend to read, beautiful short stories. The park is amaizing, great place for runners, i must say the north bergen community are very active. Parking was easily acessible. Local supermarkets are at a walking distance. The city is a bus ride away.

I love to teach and spend a great deal of time creating lessons and learning environments to enable all scholars, regardless of their learning challenge, to learn. I believe in humanity and having an altruistic way of being. I root for the underdog, generally. My style for Airbnb hosting is to host someone who is easy going, neat, private, and respects the environment, particularly the living environment.
