**** everyone staying at the apartment has to be included in the guest count, including children****

****** newly renovated apartment in a three family house. This apartment is in the basement, but it is only 50% underground as the kitchen is leveled out with the back yard and the bedroom’s windows facing the street are leveled out with the sidewalk as you can see it from the pictures ****** the exterior entrance is still not finished, but it is in the process of being done.

We are running an introductory rate of $175 per night up to 4 guests and $15 additionally per person per night after 4 guests, the apartment can accommodate up to 8 people, so if you want to stay in a nice apartment at a lower rate,this is the perfect apartment for you.

This foxy underground apartment is located in union city, new jersey which is less than 5 miles away from midtown manhattan / times square / port authority bus terminal. Union city is a hidden treasure on the other side of the lincoln tunnel and it is approximately a 20-25 minute bus ride from our location ( except during rush hours 7:00 am - 9:00 am and 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm). The bus stop is only 1 block away from the apartment and the fare is $3.20, but if you buy a minimum of 10 tickets at a time, it will cost you $2.70. The buses run every 20 minutes and the last bus leaving the port authority bus terminal to the apartment is at 1:15 am monday - friday , 1:45 am on saturday and 12:40 am on sunday. In addition, there are shuttle buses running 24 hours, but leave you 17 blocks away from the apartment in the event that you need to travel after 1:45 am. Another option is to take the PATH train from New York to Hoboken (these trains run 24 hours) then take UBER for about $7- $10 (depending on the number of people) to our apartment and it will take you approximately 10 minutes to get there.

We are closer to midtown manhattan than Brooklyn, the bronx and most parts of queens.

You can enjoy the best of both worlds by staying in this apartment as you can enjoy new york all day long and come back to this safe, green and quiet neighborhood which is also very accessible to hoboken, the official home of the famous Carlo's bakery of cake boss and birth place of frank Sinatra.. There are buses going to hoboken one block away from the apartment and they run every 20 minutes. Walking distance to supermarket, liquor store, groceries, bakeries, diner, shops, parks, etc.

If you will be driving, you will need to park on the street (I will provide you with a visitor’s pass so you won't get any parking violation) or I might be able to let you park your vehicle in one of our properties nearby (5 blocks away) provided that the other guests don’t bring any vehicles.

Check in time is at 4:00 pm and Check out time is at 11:00 am, but we are very flexible as long as we don’t have any guests checking in and checking out on your arrival and departure date. If we do, we can always hold your bags.

An early check in can only be confirmed 2 days before your arrival and a late check out can be confirmed the day before your departure.

CANCELLATION POLICY

In the event of a cancellation, there will be a 50% refund (from the entire reservation amount) up until 1 week prior to arrival and all cancellations should be done through VRBO/HOMEAWAY. However, if we manage to re-rent the place for ALL the nights you have canceled, we can offer you a bigger refund to you than our cancellation policy dictates. The earlier you cancel the more chances we will have to find other guest. This cancellation policy supersedes any other one showing on any listing by VRBO/HOMEWAY.

Lovely Apartment, Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six stayed in this lovely apartment for several days. The location was great for getting in and out of the city - and avoiding being stuck in tiny hotel rooms for twice the price. We had no problem navigating the bus/subway to get everywhere we needed to go. We felt safe in the area. (Though our group was all male.) Great apartment!

Clean, well equipped, helpful owner and close to bus stop.

  • 5 of 5

Ruth was there to meet us, provided a parking pass and gave us instructions for the bus.

The apartment was clean and well equipped. It would be a bit cramped for eight but there were only three of us so we had lots of space.

The bus stop is a couple of minutes walk. Buses come fairly regularly and take you to the terminal close to Times Square.

I would recommend this property. It is in a relatively quiet area, although there was a bit of noise from the street on occasions. I guess that is pretty much unavoidable anywhere you go in the area.

Great Stay...very convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at the Foxy Underground. The location was great, we were in Times Square in less than 20 minutes. Ruth was very helpful in all aspects. The neighborhood felt safe and the store across the street was very convenient. I would not hesitate to rent from Ruth again

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The bus stop was only 1 block away and takes you right to main bus station in NYC. Just keep in mind exact change is needed AND they do not take anything bigger than $5 bills. For example our total was $13.?? And we had a $10 bill and 3 $1's at first and driver tells us we needed 2 $5's. It was quiet at night the 2 nights we were there. We found A LOT of flies in the house when we came back one day. I notified Ruth and in less than an hour she had an exterminator there. Both her and husband Henry were very sweet!
