Good location with plenty of beds for everyone

  • 5 of 5

We were a big group of 16 adults and 2 children and there were plenty of beds for everyone. The location was great in a safe area and everything was within easy distance. Our group actually enjoyed staying away from the busyness of Manhattan and the other boroughs. The house had plenty of private space for everyone and is a fabulous deal for such a sizeable living space for NYC. It is perfect for a large group to go out and do things during the day and then have a private space for everyone to go to bed at night. Carmen was very helpful and clear about everything and we enjoyed working with her. She was also very prompt about refunding the deposit which is always great. Thank you Carmen!

Room enough for all

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our group of 12. Carmen was easy to work with, very helpful and a great resource to answer our travel questions. Easy access to the ferry via bus or a quick walk made New York City easy to get to. The rooms and beds were very comfortable and the home was clean and inviting. The neighborhood was quiet and we felt very safe. Highly recommend this property and would love to visit again.

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I found this Staten Island gem of a guesthouse. It can fit 25 people! The pictures of the rooms were beautiful but I was skeptical. All accommodations have decent pictures as well but the reality always falls short of the pictures. Not so with Carmen's guesthouse. There is a reason why she calls it STUNNING because indeed it is.

Carmen's STUNNING guesthouse is close to St. George Terminal (Staten Island Ferry). It is a 17 minute walk but I would not recommend to walk there from the terminal, especially with luggage, since there is a steep hill. It is an easy, and pleasant 17 minute walk from the guesthouse to the terminal. There is a well stocked convenience store 2 doors down where I bought fresh bagels and other food items and a very good Chinese take-out which delivers about a 3 minute walk away. So the location was great.

The house itself has 4 levels. Each level is designed to be it's own apartment with 2 bedrooms which can fit 2-4 people in each bedroom, a living area, a kitchen, and a full bathroom. There are 2 front entrances. The door to the left goes to the 1st floor and the basement, the door to the right has stairs to go up to the 2nd and 3rd floor apartments. Each bedroom is tastefully decorated and has very comfortable beds enough for a total of 25 people. There were 26 of us so I slept very soundly on 1 of 4 sofas. As you can imagine, with all this furniture, there wouldn't be much floor space. I just told my students to place their luggage under the bed or inside the closet. Each kitchen is FULLY EQUIPPED with everything you need to cook a gourmet meal! Each of the 4 apartments have a sofa, dining table, and a TV.

But the best reason to book this guesthouse is the host. Carmen is a gift! From the moment she makes her first contact with you upon making the reservation, she welcomes you to her home with open arms. She answered all my questions regarding the guesthouse, regarding public transport, regarding stores and places to eat. She even offered to pick me up from the terminal! Once I actually met her, she proved to be a delight. Her kindness and hospitality overwhelmed me. As it turned out, she drove me to the terminal twice while I let the students walk. They are young, I'm old.

With Carmen and her guesthouse, we have found our home in New York City. I highly recommend Carmen and her guesthouse. You can't go wrong.

A marvellous stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent marvellous 11 days at Carmen’s house . Her apartments are fully furnished with all necessary facilities and utensils and the kitchens provide you with tea,coffee, salt and others. The whole house was clean and tidy, the rooms nicely decorated with fresh bedding; if something went wrong or got broken, which of course happens (21 people), Carmen was always quick to help you.

The area is within a walking distance to the ferry ( a bus stop is just opposite the house) and safe so you have nothing to be afraid on your return trip from Manhattan late at night. A few shops are a minute from you so you can do last minute shopping without any problem.

But the most important asset is the charm and hospitality of the host who is always nice to talk to and ready to give you a helping hand. I hope to return to you soon, Carmen.

We are a small private school in Germany and for many years we have been bringing students to New York, and every year we sought new accomodations,and then 4 years ago we found Carmens Staten Island home and I cant adequately describe just how wonderfull the home and Carmen are ! We couldnt ask for better accommodations And the photos dont really show the beauty of the home ! You really wont find a better place.

For all that you do ! Thanks Carmen !

Trip to NYC

  • 3 of 5

This house was very clean and beds comfortable. It was very packed with furniture so there was not much room for us to gather but we were out sightseeing most of the time anyway. The walk to the ferry is much longer and more hilly than described by Carmen. Carmen was helpful with all our questions. We did have issues with the air conditioning and felt like we should be able to be comfortable assuming that was included in the price we paid. It was our understanding that the deposit was refundable, but Carmen insisted we did not pay a deposit. If you are wanting a house to relax and spend time in, this isn't the one you want. It was great for eating a quick breakfast in a tiny kitchen and coming back at night to shower and go to bed. We would not be returning to this house in the future.

Owner's Response: Becky, it was just unfortunate you felt you had to go there considering you said you a great stay at my home. The security deposit you did not pay this is why you were unable to show me proof.
