Wonderful stay at Robins Nest !

My family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children 17, 14, 10) stayed at Robins Nest for a week in December 09. Our travel plans had us flying into NY direct from Sydney Australia – so after a 24 hour journey we did not need any accommodation hassles. That is why we chose Robin’s Nest. Robin the landlord had answered all my pre travel questions by email and phone so when we finally arrived very late at night, and very cold, the apartment and the check in process were exactly as we had been expecting. My kids loved the wood fire although the steam driven heaters were a new experience!
The apartment proved very comfortable for our party of 5, and it was exceptionally easy to get to the New York attractions. We enjoyed the short walk to the Staten Island Ferry (despite the unseasonable cold weather !) each day, and the free ferry trip was punctual, clean and safe! There are plenty of convenience stores close by to stock up on groceries/snacks. When we needed to stock up on winter gear, Robin recommmended we take the bus from outside the front door direct to the Staten Island Mall - the pre Christmas sales were in full flight so we managed to pick up a bargain or two! Thanks again Robin and we have no hesitation in recommending your apartment to any travellers!
Stay here the next time you run the NYC marathon

My husband and I and another couple rented this lovely home when we ran the 2009 NYC marathon. Getting the shuttle to the start line was a piece of cake, just a five block walk to the ferry terminal, where runners, biffy's and many marathon shuttles were waiting. Convenient to many good restaurants (walk a bit more down Bay Street to the blue restaurant) including the tapas Beso and Italian Enoteca. Only downside was the loud street traffic when you're trying to sleep. Not a big deal though, pros far outweigh the cons.
