Our 2-Bedroom is perfect. We want great guests to experience our amazing place. If you love to live like a local who has a great pad, this is the place for you. Can't wait to meet you.
So I've been AirBNB-ing for 6 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. We've opened up the second bedroom to make it easier for guests so you get 2 Queen size beds and we also have an extra air mattress and a crib so we can accommodate 4 adults and 1 child.

2. Corner unit on high floor (views of everything)
3. NYC Chef Kitchen (we're chefs..we have everything - I mean everything - even a sous vide machine)
4. High Def Film Projector (holy!)
6. Gym with POOL

Look at our reviews..look at our pics. We love our place and we are awesome hosts because we love people and want to give you the perfect NYC experience.
Ok back to to the typical apartment description:
Great apartment with tons of light on a high floor in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The apartment is 1,100 sq feet and 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. 20 minute walk to Times Square.
The building has 24-hour doormen and is close to four supermarkets (including Whole Foods and Trader Joe's). 100% Safety and taxis galore.
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. Into Ballet..were steps away from Lincoln Center. It's a dream.
We love to cook so the kitchen is stocked with pretty great appliances (Kitchen Aid Mixer, All Clad pots and pans, Le Creuset set, BlendTec blender, heck we have a Sous Vide.)
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.
**NEW: For the guys (or gamer gals) there's also an Xbox One in the living room and an Xbox 360 in the bedroom. So (old school/newschool)
We have the fastest internet available in NYC so you can surf with ease (300mbs). 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 between 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. We can also show you online the places that deliver.
Where is the 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 of Manhattan. If you are international then JFK. We can suggest a few car services to ease your transportation pain.
Personally we love Uber.
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 out our reviews.
It's my mom+dad and me can we fit in the place?
Yes and fit comfortably. We have two bedrooms each with Queen size beds. You'll enjoy great views and 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(what?...it's true). Hotels are for suckers. Don't be a sucker. Enjoy luxury.

Whole house, gym, pool, NYC.
Interaction with Guests
We love our guests! Daily.. they can call/email/sms/WhatsApp us anytime
The Parks! We are in NYC but not in the hustle and bustle of Midtown. So you get Riverside Park and Central Park. All within a 2 block walk. You get NYC but then you get serene NYC. You're 20 minute walk to Time Square. You're a drive away to other parts of the state.
We have a private bus for building that brings you to Time Warner Center on weekdays. Also 3 Blocks away is the 1 line. We have a bus on the corner (M57) that brings you to the East Side (Museum Mile). There are taxis on the street or you can get Uber. If you need help getting from airport we can help you with a car service.
Other Things to Note
We love our guests so we pride ourselves to help you have the best experience possible.
NO SMOKING anywhere on the property (includes the balcony).
Use your best judgment.
No parties or unexpected guests.
The cleaning fee is for a cleaning lady that comes in weekly. If you stay longer than a week you must coordinate a time with her to have her come in and clean.
No crazy BBQ on the deck (sorry it's NYC law)
You have to leave the house as you received it. We'd do the same for yours.
If you break something please contact us and replace it.
If you are confused about anything please email or call us ASAP. We are here to help.
No guests, no parties, and be respectful of our neighbors, this is our home and we like to keep them happy.
We had a great time in this apartment. 4 of us and plenty of room with two queen beds and two bathrooms.
There is lots of tech including huge projector TV which was great. Excellent WiFi.
Kitchen with everything you might need and food welcome pack.
Very light and bright - huge windows with great views - corner unit with balcony.
The apartment looks like the pictures but feels like someone's home and expresses their personality - art and cooking - lots of books. We like this much better than a corporate hotel room.
Good place to stay in NYC - upper west side but walking distance to midtown (20min) and easy quick subway to midtown (10min) or downtown. Easy to get to the bright lights but also a little quieter and more residential than a big midtown hotel.
Lincoln Centre only 5min walk which was fantastic. Columbus circle 10min walk, Central Park 10min walk.
Easy food shopping with supermarkets 5min walk
Lots of bars and restaurants of every type within short walk to 72nd street, Lincoln Centre, Columbus circle.
For outdoors exercise I ran and cycled around Central Park (6 miles around each time), and up and down riverside park (5min from apartment then traffic free all the way to downtown - or further uptown. Fantastic 8mile run but easy to go further)
The gym and pool are in the apartment block on the ground floor. It is a private gym with membership fees, but you can get a free week trial membership for full access - in the end we were too busy to use it and also too busy enjoying life in the apartment
Host excellent, very responsive during whole process. kept in touch when we were there to make sure all was OK (it was!)
The listing was accurate, apartment great, and location fantastic. Blanca and Antonio were always available to help and I felt well taken care of. Thank you!
Clean,tidy apt, food welcome pack, SMS contact after arrival and during visit to check in. Neighbors neither visible nor noticeable, very quite.
Blanca was a perfect and attentive host, she was on top of all our travel details as well as clear explanations of how everything in her lovely apartment worked. We particularly liked the projection tv which was a real treat. I would definitely stay here again.
The Apartment is lovely and have a fantastic skyscraber view facing East and North from the 23rd floor. The balcony is small but two people can easily sit at the table. Pictures match the looks of the place.
Blanca is very easy to coordinate with and had prepared a booklet of information for us to read about NY as well as where to find various things. Blanca had even left a "starter kit" in the refrigerater :-)
This is not a rental flat but a private home and that gave us a warm and personal feeling of how to live a daily life in NY.
We can recommend this apartment and would love to come back another time.
L'appartamento era esattamente come descritto e fedele alla foto. La vista su una parte di Manhattan e sul fiume è semplicemente impagabile.
Eravamo tre amiche non giovanissime e perciò abbiamo apprezzato molto ad avere a disposizione due camere con letti con materassi molto buoni e due bagni attezzati di tutto - perfino bagnoschiuma e shampoo di qualità a nostra disposizione.
La pulizia dell'appartamento era ottima e c'erano lenzuola e asciugamani di tutte le misure in abbondanza. Il personale del condominio è gentile e pronto ad aiutare.
La posiozione dell'appartamento è molto buono con il Lincoln Center veramente vicino da dove partono linee di metro e bus. Vicino all'appartamento si trovano diversi supermercati - anche uno con prodotti bio - e tutti gli altri servizi eventualmente richiesti come parucchiere, studio di manicure ecc.
Particolarmente colpite siamo anche state dall'accoglienza di Cunei che aveva messo a nostra disposizione nel frigo spremute, latte fresco, uova fresche ecc. e sul tavolo un abbondante cesto di frutta fresca e prosecco come saluto di benvenuto - un gesto molto carino ed apprezzato dopo un volo lungo dall'Europa.
All'inizio non sapevamo far funzionare bene i nostri cellulari con SIM italiana e Cunei ha cercato in tutti i modi di aiutarci essendo sempre a disposizione per rispondere alle nostre domande.
Che altro dire - per noi è stata un'esperienza perfetta e se dovessimo ritornare a New York, cercheremo senz'altro di essere di nuovo ospiti di Cunei. Abbiamo anche già raccomandato il suo appartamento ai nostri amici americani ed europei.
Grazie Cunei per aver condiviso il tuo gioiello con noi.
I had the pleasure to live here for a couple of weeks, and can ensure you that the apartment follows all the descriptions. I compared my own pics with the ones from the webside and everything looks exactly the same. There is a full equipped kitchen, a huge living room, two bedrooms, and a balcony from which you can enjoy the view of the Upper East Side. What's more, there is a projector (perfect to watch US Open:), xBox One, a rich offer from the cable TV, a printer, and even an... electronic waste bin.
In the building there is a small pool (with very pleasant staff), a gym, a laundry room, and every couple of days there is a postman delivering the press.
It takes about 4 minutes to get to the Riverside Park (perfect for runners), 10 minutes to reach the Central Park, and 6 to the nearest subway (lines 1, 2, and 3). Lots of restaurants and shops in the neighborhood. Everyday I was coming back home late at night. First of all it was a bit scarry (not so many tourists, and a lot of local youth) but I can honestly say it is a safe place, constantly watched over by the police.
Blanca is a fantastic person. She was giving me advice with finding restaurants, and events. I could always ask her any question, and be shure to have it answered on that same day.
Thank you so much for the kind words and for taking such great care of our home. I am thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. We're already planning upgrades to the (email hidden) if you come back next year there will be plenty of fun surprises and new toys to play with. I hope you had a nice and comfortable flight home.
