About the Homestay
We are a family of 4 (3 generations) looking to experience different cultures. My mom can’t hear that good these days; although we are considerate, we can talk loud sometimes so that she can hear us. I am 10 minutes from the Lincoln tunnel and 5 minutes from the train station.
Ample of public transportations to get all over the state and to different states (including NYC). Our town is a suburb with a city close by; as a matter of fact you can see the New York Skyline from outside our front door. We have a newly renovated outdoor patio where you can read, work, or relax. Laundry is offered (must bring own detergent).
We have 3 dogs, 2 cats & 1 caged bird. Our house is clean, we are welcoming and enjoy visitors.

You are very close to the bus which takes you into the City. The room is very loud, as the grandmother is hard of hearing and watches TV all day and into the night. Be careful where you walk, Lulu the dog has accidents and I walked into a puddle of urine once. Also the cat likes to defecate outside the litter box because nobody cleans it. Otherwise, the bathroom is nice.
It was such a great trip!! She and her family were so nice to me. I really enjoyed staying at Theas home! And it was the best decision for me, because I was travelling alone and this way I learned so much about the culture and american traditions and Thea always gave me advice, that was very helpful. I would really like to stay here the next time when I'm visiting New York :)
The host cancelled the booking 20 days before the arrival date.
Thea was an amazing host and I miss her and her family because they treated my like a daughter, Thea gave to me all the information
For transportation . The first day I was a little bit afraid because that was my first time in New York but Thea and her family made me feel like home . The house is very nice ,cosy and in a perfect area .When I booked the room I didn’t expect all this and also I didn’t expect to find a good friend ( Thea’s daughter) ...so I think that Thea is a wonderful host and this family is the best choice for everyone .( I miss my second family ...Thea’s family ❤️)

Das Zimmer war wirklich schön und groß und wenn man sich in dem Haus nicht lange aufhält passt es aber wenn man dann doch wegen regen oder irgendwas zuhause bleibt darf man sich den ganzen Tag das Geschrei der Familie anhören das war wirklich nicht schön!
Thea was a wonderful host and her family was so welcoming and understanding especially when we had a lot of transport delays. The location was cosy and comfortable and perfect for sightseeing, only minutes by bus into centre of NYC! Thanks Thea and family for a lovely stay and we wish you all the best!
Thea is kind,energetic and perfect host. She helped us with things that we couldn’t figure out, or have struggle with(like transportation...)We stayed with her 40 days that I can say excellent. We will definitely stay with her in the future. House condition and location(including transport to New York) was good too. Thanks for everything We had great time.
Great and beautiful family, I feel like my home.
Her home is clean and comfortable! Her family is very nice. They offer helpful tips and definitely watch out for you. It's close enough to New York that you can commute everyday (which was what I did) with pretty much zero stress. It's a $3.50 ride to Time Square. Would definitely recommend.
