Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Gorgeous house, lovely room, amazing shower, friendly host and very practical location! It's only one easy subway stop from manhattan and it's situated in a lovely neighborhood. As an added bonus, the Chrysler building pops up in the view down the street. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you, Orestes!

  • We stayed at Orestes' place 4 nights at the end of March and we're very happy that we've chosen to stay with him. The location is ideal: a couple of minutes from the nearest Subway station (which takes you in a couple more minutes across the water) and very quiet. You also have a lot of space: large bedroom and a bathroom with a huge shower. Unfortunately, it was too cold to sit in the garden but it looked lovely from the outside!
    Orestes himself was very friendly and always happy to help us out with suggestions or advice.
    If you're happy with staying outside of the city center, I would definitely recommend Orestes' place!

  • We loved staying at the Private Suite in Long Island City. The bedroom and bathroom were both nicely decorated, spacious and functional. I can imagine in Spring or Summer we would have relaxed and enjoyed the weather in the beautiful landscaped garden. It's just one stop from midtown Manhatten, so you do have all the advantages of being close to the city. We also enjoyed walking along the shore with the Manhattan Midtown skyline view and taking the ferry. We can certainly recommend Orestes' Private Suite!

  • After many guests we even had with AirBnB, that was our first time as a AirBnB guest ourselves - and it was a really great experience. The room and the house of Orestes are exactly as shown at the pics. It´s a great renovated townhouse, perfect located in Queens - Long Island City, just two metro-stations away from Times Square.
    In contrast to have the stay in Manhattan it is very quiet and relaxful there. The Metro is just 2 minutes to walk and after a few minutes more you are in midtown manhatten. Perfect!

    The bedroom is very cozy and the own bathroom - with the biggest shower we´ve ever seen - is awesome and very clean too.

    Orestes is a perfect host. He is very friendly, helpful and has many inside tips to get to know the "Capital of the World".

    For every New York-Visitor we just can recommend Orestes and his great location and would love to come back. Thanks a lot and all the best!

  • It was amazing stay in Orestes's house. A peaceful and inspiring place. The area is safe and Manhattan is just a subway station away. Near the house you can find supermarkets, restaurants and more.The room is very clean, well decorated, spacious and the bathroom too.
    Orestes helped us a lot with advices about places and location.
    We felt very comfortable at his house and we totally recommend Orestes's house to all in Airbnb.
    Hope return another time. Maybe in the spring!
    And please, if you decide to come to Rio, please.. let us know!
    Thanks for everything Orestes!

  • To resume, is was PERFECT !! Nous étions à la maison ! Chambre très comfortable, spacieuse, une salle de bain désign avec une cabine de douche IMMENSE ! A 2min du métro et 15min de Manhattan, idéal pour les journées intenses sur l'île de Manhattant et le calme de cette maison qui est sublime et dont le son vous transporte grâce aux musiques latines/jazzy ! On a eu l'occasion de partager la fameuse dinde de thanksgiving avec nos hotes, un moment inoubliable ! Je recommande ce logement si vous aimez le calme, le comfort et l'art. Cette maison est chaleureuse et pleine de découverte avec des objets d'artes, des peintures et de magnifique photo a découvrir dans toutes les pièces ! Encore merci Orestes pour ton accueil, nous reviendrons sans hésiter !

  • Tracy and I had a wonderful time in New York and Orestes made it unforgettable with his generous hospitality. This was our first time using airbnb and we can't be happier with experience. The room and bathroom was nice and clean, the bed comfortable, and everything was to our liking. The room was exactly as we expected. He even called us a car when we needed to get back to the airport. The subway station was a five minute walk and we got in and out of Manhattan with ease. We were very grateful for your hospitality. We hope to see you again in the future. Thank you again!

Univ Of Texas, Architecture. 1982.
Architect/Photographer/Developer. I enjoy NYC tremendously but love traveling and have visited over 40 countries. My house is filled with artwork from those travels. I work my design business from my home studio, in a restored 1890 landmark townhouse with all the modern amenities. My house has been used for filming scenes for Sex & The City, The Sopranos, Gossip Girl & Smash Television shows. My photography column,"Orestes'LIC" appears every month in the local paper. I love Asian, Spanish & Cuban food, along with a good bottle of red wine. Talking about travel, art, design and photography,is my favorite pastime. (Sorry, I dont shop or know wheres the best electronics bargains are located ! ) I love giving great walking tour information of different parts of NYC, and info on non-touristy places to eat real food in the area. I will provide you the privacy level you require to make your stay here is as comfortable as possible. Enjoy a great, clean, stylish place to stay, only 7 minutes from Manhattan!
