The Space

So I've been AirBNB-ing for 5 years now and I will tell you 95% of the places you will see on the site are pretty basic comparably. Our is in the top 5% of all AirBnB Listings.


1. over 1000 Sq Feet (in NYC that's almost impossible)
2. Corner unit on high floor (views of everything)
3. NYC Chef Kitchen
4. High Def Film Projector (holy!)
5. Doormen
6. Gym with POOL&Sauna&Steam
7. 10 minutes to everything you want in NYC

Look at our reviews..look at our pics. We love our place and we are awesome hosts because we love people.

Ok back to to the typical APT description:

Great apartment with great light on a high floor in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The apartment is 1,000 sq feet has a full living room, dining room, kitchen, 2 full bathrooms, and a deck with a great view.

The kitchen is absolutely amazing with plenty of counter space and everything you can dream of to cook with.

The apartment is steps away from Riverside Park and a quick 5 minute walk to Lincoln Center, Central Park and Columbus Circle.

The building has 24 hour doormen and is close to four supermarkets (including whole Foods and Trader Joe's).

The subway is 3 blocks away and there is a private shuttle to Columbus Circle.

If you're into music, you're in luck, we're steps away from Lincoln Center.

We love to cook so the kitchen is stocked with pretty great appliances (kitchen aid mixer, All Clad pots and pans, Le Creuset set, BlendTech blender, etc.)

We have a great 1080p HD projector so you'll be able to see HD movies on a 10x10 foot screen.

We've also got a Netflix account that is loaded with some great films so that you can enjoy the projector as much as we do.

For the guys (or gamer gals) there's also an Xbox in the living room and one in the bedroom.

We have the fastest internet available in NYC so you can surf with ease. The building has a pool in the health club which is extra but they offer day passes that are pretty affordable ($15 per day).

Hope you enjoy the place as much as I do.

Questions we get:

How Close to Time Square?
20 minutes walking, 15 minutes subway.

Is the Area Safe?
We are on 2 parks. The area is quiet with kids and their nanny's mixed with couples and their dogs.

Food shopping nearby?
Less than a block away: Gracefully, Western beef.
A short walk: Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Fairway.

Where is subway?
We provide you with an awesome info package with everything. You'll have no worries because subway is a 6 minute walk.

What airport should I fly into to easy my stress to getting into the place?
I'd suggest Newark since we are on the west side. If you are international then JFK. We can suggest a few car services to ease your transportation pain.

I am on a business trip. Is this a place that will work for me?
Would you rather have a Time Square Hilton at 3x the cost than your own place with views to die for? Be a good corporate citizen and get pampered for 1/3 the cost.

I am a smoker would your place work for me.

I want to be in the heart of NYC and see all the big lights would your place be for me?
Yes, you'll have the greatest experience of your life. Check our reviews.

It's my mom+dad and me can we fit in the place?
Yes and fit comfortably. You'll enjoy great views and an amazing NYC experience. If you have questions, just message me.

Can I get a discount?
No. Keep shopping buddy.

I not sure if I should pick a hotel or an AirBnB. Kinda weird to rent out a person's place. Any advice.
We are respectful and have service in mind. Your bed sheets and towels are clean and you have a cleaning person who visits every week. Hotels are for suckers. Don't be a sucker. Enjoy luxury.

***UPDATE*** We had to cancel 2 bookings (first time ever) due to a family emergency that we had to return home to take care of. It's a very rare occurrence and hope potential guest consider this. We've had over 21 5-Star bookings and love to host new guests.

  • Nice flat, well located near Riverside Park and the Lincoln Center. Great view ! The apartment is very well furnished, especially the kitchen where you can cook nearly whatever you want.
    Blanca has been an amazing host, very kind and responsive. She adviced us very nice places to visit and amazing restaurants. This was our first stay in NYC, and it could not have been better...

    I am thrilled that you had a great time at our place. It was lovely sharing our home with you and meeting you. I wish you both an amazing time & maybe we'll get to meet the little one on our next trip to Paris.

    À bientôt,

  • This is a really hard review to write as there was nothing "technically" wrong with the apartment but we didn't really have a very comfortable stay.
    Let me start with the positives. It is a spacious apartment and is in a very good building in a great location and Blanca is a very caring host who kept us updated with lots of information and recommendations.
    The main problem was the clutter of personal effects which covered every surface and were stuffed into every cupboard, corner and draw. There was only one small cupboard (with no hanging space) for us to place our clothes. There was only 1 square foot of space available on top of the chest of drawers for us to put personal items. The kitchen benches were full of appliances with little room to prepare anything. There were no bed covers or blankets - just 2 sheets on the bed. The apartment was reasonably clean but all that stuff does generate dust and makes it difficult to clean surfaces properly.
    I had not used AirBNB before this trip but I have sublet apartments for holiday rent and normally people pack away some of their personal items to make space for the renters. If you are only staying a night or 2 and don't want to unpack then the apartment would be fine. If like us you are staying a week, then just be aware this may not be the most comfortable option.
    In conclusion though, in spite of my personal experience with the accommodation you will not find a more accommodating and caring host.

    Response from Cunei:


    I was very surprised by your review. I really wish you had made me aware of
    your concerns and encourage you to have better communication with future
    As you noted, I was in constant contact with you.

    We leave an entire armoire empty for all guests which includes hanging
    space (and plenty of hangers). We also leave a cabinet open in each
    bathroom as well as two shelves on each cupboard for our guests use.
    One is stocked with basics such as tea, coffee and sugar so that guests do
    not have to purchase these basics.

    NYC apartments and kitchens are small as a rule. Ours is larger than the
    usual kitchen and apartment (our apartment is 1100 sq ft). On our counters
    (which are accurately depicted on our airbnb verified pictures) we leave
    only: a tea kettle, a blender, and a mixer.

    If you would have let me know, I would have done my best to accommodate you.

    I am really sad that this was not to your liking. This is the first time a
    guest has expressed dissatisfaction. Again I ask that you communicate with
    your future hosts if you do have any issues so that they have a chance to
    make you happy.

  • Good location and lots of light and space. Unusual for Manhatten. Had a nice breeze from the Hudson with a convenient location close to Lincoln centre and Riverside park. Unfortunately we never got to meet Blanca but she was very informative on great restaurants in the city and made sure you were comfortable.Recommended!

  • Great apartment. Great location. Great host. Blanca was responsive throughout our visit and provided a great list of restaurants the day of our arrival. Love the view from the balcony looking up West End Avenue. Highly recommended! Thank you Blanca.

  • We lived in Blancas apartments for 2 weeks and our stay was excellent. Blanca was a great host, was extremely friendly, answered all our questions very quickly and has always been in touch.

    The apartment we found a book with explanations of all in the apartment, rules, tips, description of the neighborhood.
    Apartments are spacious, has 2 bathrooms, there were three of us and we felt fine. View from the window is just perfect.

    Apartments are perfectly located, to Central Park you can get on foot in 10 minutes, to the subway (66st) in 7 minutes, to Times Square in 25 minutes. We may reached on foot everything, but subway is also nice and quick.
    Area is absolutely safe, there are a lot of cafes and shops. On the first floor there is a great grocery store with great prices.

    We really enjoyed the trip to NYC and stay at Blancas apartments.

  • Perfect place to stay for my meetings in NJ and enjoy NYC sights and scenes. Cabs were waiting for me right outside of the front door every morning.

  • What a lucky find for us this was! We were travelling to NY all the way from Uruguay and with our 2 year old son. Hotels were not an option, we needed a kitchen and decent space for a kid to move around, at an affordable price.

    Blanca´s apartment was the perfect fit, and we are really happy to have met her and her husband. Not only the apartment was great, but Blanca and Antonio took the time to help us have a better experience. They left a bottle of wine and made lots of suggestions about places to go.

    The apartment is beautiful, modern, well equipped and with an amazing view of the city, from the 23rd floor. It is also very well located, making it easy to get to all the cool places in NYC.

    I highly recommend this apartment.
