This is a private room 5 minute walking distance to North Elizabeth train station which takes you to NYC in 25 minutes. There is a bus that takes you to NY Port Authority right on the corner of the block! The house is 5 minutes from Newark Airport.
The room is very clean and very cozy. It can accommodate 1 person comfortably. It has a twin size bed, Armoire to hang clothe, Air Conditioner in the summer Heat in the winter, Flat Screen TV with cable, night stand with lamp, a work desk, and Strong Wi-Fi connection. Although this room has the bunk bed I do not have a ladder for the top bed. I will be able to provide a small step ladder to assist the person staying on the top bunk. (sorry for any inconvenience)
** note: you will be able to hear the sound of traffic because this room is not well insulated. But I can provide ear plugs if the sound will bother you. ** this is still a great deal ;).
There are 2 shared bathrooms which are always clean and maintained daily. There is also a full kitchen you will have access to along with utensils, Pots and pans etc. I recommend the room for 1 person but willing to accommodate 2 once I get the ladder for the bed.
I'll be more than happy to help in any way. Especially Friday-Sunday since I have more time and will be close by. I'm only a phone call or text away and if there is anything I could do to make your stay more comfortable please don't hesitate to ask. I was born and raised in this area and know it very well.
**I am able to arrange pick ups and drop offs to and from Newark International Airport for a fee of $10.00 each way.
** This is much cheaper than what a regular taxi would charge which is around $20-25 one way. Best option would be Uber or Lyft, they charge $5-7 for the trip.
***If you are new to Uber use this code for a free ride up to $15! code: uberchristianveliz .
***If you are new to Lyft sign up and use this code for up to $50 worth of free rides! code: CHRISTIAN927170
But if you would like for me to arrange a ride for you let me know in advanced and I will set everything up.
**There are also other options such as taking the train From Newark International Airport to North Elizabeth Station or taking NJ Transit bus #62 from the Airport to the Bus Stop on the corner of Spring Street (US Highway 1&9) & North Avenue. This bus stop is 2 blocks away from my place.
I provide clean towels, shampoo, and bottled water for every guest.
No Smoking in the Room. Be respectful of other guests, Leave the room the way it was given to you. No loud noises 11pm-6am. No using the kitchen after 10:30pm ( because other people may be sleeping at that time) No extra guests who are not listed on the itinerary.
I am a graduate Student at Harvard University studying International Affairs with concentration in Finance. I received a Bachelors Degree in Public Relations with a minor Communication Studies from Kean University. I was born and raised in Elizabeth, NJ. I spend Monday-Thursday in Massachusetts and travel back home to NJ Friday-Sunday. But even though I may not be around everyday I always have someone responsible taking care of the guests. I am very easy going and would be more than happy to help make your stay at my place as comfortable as possible. I am only a phone call away or a text away.
