Comfortable and spacious one bedroom apartment with separate entrance located on the ground level of our historic home in South Orange, New Jersey. South Orange is a vibrant commuter town located 30 minutes by train from New York Penn Station, 15 minutes from Newark Airport and 1 block from Seton Hall University. Off street parking is available.

The space

One bedroom basement apartment located on the lower basement level of our home with a separate entrance. A large living room area has a large sectional sofa, dining area and a flat screen TV with cable TV. A separate bedroom has two single beds that can be combined to make a king plus the sofa bed in the living room pulls out to a full size pull out bed. The full bath has a shower. There is a table with seating for four people for meals and working. The galley kitchen is well stocked and has necessary equipment (full size stove/oven, microwave, toaster, and coffeepot). There is also a laundry room that you are welcome to use.

Guest access

The entrance to the apartment is completely separate from the main house. The apartment is very private and quiet.

Guests are welcome to use the laundry facilities.

Please note that the basement is in the lower ground level of our home so you must enter and go down 4 steps to gain access to the apartment door.

Very responsive & friendly hosts, 15-20 minute walk to South Orange train station; great location, lovely & comfortable space, kitchen has enough items to make basic meals, clean bathroom, the shower stall might be tight quarters for a very tall person. I'm 5' 7" and the ceiling felt close. Parking was no problem. I would definitely stay here again. High recommendation.

The apartment's location is great - close to Seton Hall, South Orange Village and NJ transit. The amenities are exactly as listed and Jennifer is very responsive to any question you may have. Very comfortable for two of us. It's always a pleasure to stay here!

This is a perfect place to stay if you want to visit NYC or the surrounding areas. Clean and comfortable just like home. Jen and her family go above and beyond to show hospitality and are always a phone call away if you need anything. The neighborhood is beautiful and I felt completely safe traveling with my two teenage daughters. The WiFi was warp speed and the TV service was excellent for us to catch the daily news. A short very safe walk to the train station if walking is your thing but if not Uber never took longer than 5 mins. Several good food delivery locations near by and South Orange also has many excellent places to eat. The market is also close by. We didn't cook anything we chose to eat out but everything you need to cook a meal is available. The pictures and description are extremely accurate. Perfect vacation due in part to our accommodations here. We will most definitely be back! 10 stars if that was an option!

Jen's place was exactly as pictured and described - truly a home away from home! I stayed here a month and Jen was incredibly responsive throughout. I highly recommend her place and will definitely look it up the next time I'm in the area.

Jen's place was wonderful! It was exactly like in the description. Everything was very clean and the apartment had everything we needed. Jen and Jerry were so kind and welcoming and they always checked I with us to make sure we were comfortable. I stayed there for a month and felt right at home the whole time. I will definitely stay there again in the future. I highly recommend it!

Fabulous, clean, convenient! It is down a few stairs but that was not an issue for us. We loved having a living area separate from the sleeping room. My husband likes to stay up later than I do and that is always an issue in hotel rooms. We loved having a small kitchen where we could make breakfast. Really delightful accommodations, a gracious host and perfect proximity to our son's college graduation. Highly recommend!
