We stayed in Joseph's house for five nights in early September 2013. Family of 5 with one 19 month old baby and the house suited us very well. We wanted a home away from home with my little nephew, so that he would have space to play and we could prepare decent meals. The house is very spacious and clean. We went in to New York City for a few days during our stay and found the best solution for us (with baby), was to drive to Hoboken station, then catch either the PATH subway to the city or the bus to Port Authority, just by Time Square. The combination of space and price, made the travel time into the city worth our while. We also took a drive up to Woodbury Common on two occasions and it was very easy to reach via highway.
Joseph is a great host and very helpful all along the booking and again during our stay. We would definitely consider his place again on future trips.
