    Even though I was not able to go for my stay with Cynthia, She was very kind and respectful. I will recommend a stay with Cynthia to anyone coming to New York and Nearby New Jersey a million times. She is very insightful about the city. Book a stay with Cynthia and you'd be sure of a very warm welcome home

    I did not know where I was going to stay when I arrived in New Jersey. Extremely grateful to find this room with Cynthia which is next to the airport. Great host, attentive and genuine. Enjoy a conversation with her.

    I was able to walk to the bus or train about 20 min away to get to New York(an hour ride by bus or train). Pretty much did it everyday. Some good pizza places nearby and a diner. Even a local bar with good nightlife. I’d be glad to come stay here again.

    Loved the place and the conversation, Calm and comfortable to rest. Enjoyed the flavor options from cilantro/coriander to Turmeric for breakfast. Google shows closest bus 115 or SIM33c or fast from highway. I just tested bus 62 is ok, or NJ train if wanted to walk.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
