A private bedroom in an easy-in, easy-out apartment on the first floor on a great block on the Upper West Side.
We are a very laid back couple with an 15 months old boy. We love hosting and we appreciate privacy and space. We have an extra bedroom (3 total), right by the front door and our apartment is right by the building's front door... we are very hospitable, community oriented with the outmost respect for privacy.
Of course there is a kitchen which you may use. 1 bathroom. Our space is very "ZEN" if we may say so.... as parents we like to keep a calm atmosphere as our child is also pretty calm. We do have midnight diaper changes going on with the occasional cries but overall it's pretty chill around here.
We got fast internet wifi, filtered water and everything in the house is earth friendly...
Walking distance to 3 parks: Central Park, Riverside Park and Morningside Park. Also, amazing Church grounds close by with gardens and peacocks walking around. Within 5-10 minutes of walking there are multiple ponds, lakes, waterfalls and woodsy trails... and you are still in the heart of Manhattan! Yes.
This is a great family neighborhood. Lots of restaurants, multiple subway lines and all that good stuff.
What makes our place unique? Well, our energy, our family and our deep respect for home. Your room is right by the front door and our apartment is right by the building's frontdoor so you can just come in and out... (if you are a very light sleeper, this may not be a good option as you do hear the building's doors closing).
We are a very easy-going parents with a fantastic baby boy - so our love and feelings makes our place very unique... your luck is most likely to improve just by staying with us... can we say that? well that's the kind of people we are!
Oriya and Kerri were lovely, relaxed, and thoughtful hosts. Their home was a great place to stay, quiet, relaxed and has plenty of privacy. The room is spacious, clean, conveniently located near the front door, and extremely comfortable. The location is perfect for all of Manhattan, especially for Central Park just a 5 min stroll away. There are two subway stops really close by too. I wholly recommend Oriyas place if you're looking for something quiet, cozy and very reasonably priced. Thanks Oriya and Kerri!
We stayed at Oriya and his family's place for 5 nights. It was a very pleasant quiet place to stay ideally located for metros and buses to laguardia airport. They respected our needs of using their house as a base whilst spending the majority of our time downtown. Would highly recommend. The family were very friendly for the few times we saw them in our busy three days. Positive start to our airbnb experience.
I stayed Oriya's place for 3 days.
Its location is good because subway stations and bus stops are close.
It's easy to find it from La guardia airport by bus even though Oriya never informed me of the direction(I'm sorry to say that he was not responsive).
Also, there are lots of grocery stores and restaurents.
The bedroom is clean,cosy and warm. It''s easy to get in and out of the guest's room. The bathroom is small but not inconvenient.
The atmosphere of Oriya's is family-friendly. Sometimes Oriya, not his baby-boy, made some noise, singing and playing the guitar.(Of course I respect their privacy, so I didn't have any thought to interrupt their daily life. However, I think the host has to bear in mind they share some space with the guest. Vice versa.)
Nevertheless, I slept well during the stay and enjoyed NYC!
It was a pleasure to host you Minjeong. I am glad you were able to get rest and enjoy yourself in our home. Our baby's bedtime is between 8 and 9pm so I know the home is super quiet afterwards and thank you for that! I will also make sure to keep a closer look at all communications - thank for the note. Much love.
Oriya and Kerri were lovely, responsive, and thoughtful hosts. Their home is quiet, relaxed and has plenty of privacy. The room is spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The location is great too - close to two subway stops. I wholly recommend their place if you're looking for something quiet, cozy and very fairly priced.
It was our first trip with airbnb.de and we were very surprised. We enjoyed the accomondation. We have felt ourselves included and there were never problems. Oriya, Karry and Hanu are a wonderful family. Especially the Hanu is very dear to my heart (Mr. B) On the first day we arrived very late, but still there were no problems. Even with questions about our trip, we were always get help and it always resulted in good conversation. We would recommend the private & calm of Oriya.The room is very comfortable and large. It has enough room for two. We would be happy to see this great family again. Love, Duygu and Benjamin.
We had a very good time in New York, also thanks to our stay at Oriya and Karri's home. Just like many guests before us already said: they are extremely friendly and easy going people. The room is quite nice, the bed very good. At first, we had to get used to going through their living room for bathroom and toilet, but as they were comfortable with it, we were too. We felt very welcome.
Subway stations are close, and Upper West Side is a great area to stay anyway; Broadway between 80th and 100th Street is very good as far as grocery shops and affordable restaurants.
I enjoyed my brief stay with Oriya's family. They are fun to talk with, and their apartment is super convenient. They are casual and cheerful, interesting conversations. The baby was a plus, very dear. My room was comfortable and I slept well. It's a sweet family experience, homey, and with privacy as desired.
Very nice place and friendly people. It is first experience with (website hidden) - and we enjoyed it very much.
Oriya was very accommodating, and the bedroom was neat. The place is very close to the subway and located in a safe neighborhood. I would stay here again!
A lovely room in a lovely neighbourhood with a lovely family. My boyfriend and I had a great stay. Highlights being meeting their son Hanu who was such a nice kid, the bed which was incredibly comfortable, biggest slice of pizza I've ever eaten just a couple blocks north on Broadway, and a snowy adventure in north Central Park.
Overall Carri and Oriya are just as easy-going, zen, and positive as they say. The room is comfortable, the neighbourhood is good, the apartment is homey and the price is great. What more could you as for in an Airbnb experience.
