Orestes is a terrific host, warm and very knowledgeable about the area. He also has a wonderful design sense, and we really enjoyed his place. The dog is great, too. We felt completely at home and also loved the museums and restaurants in the neighborhood. The location is also fantastic for traveling to Manhattan. We felt we had privacy and freedom to come and go, but also that Orestes was always available for questions or advice.
Orestes was a great host!
We stayed at his beautiful home for 4 nights and enjoyed it very much. The Location is perfectly located (very close to the subway) and absolutly tidy and clean. We loved the wonderful shower and the bathroom most. I would always recommend staying at this place.
Our host made us feel completely at home with a warm friendly welcome and everything described in the listing was accurate, clean linen, brochures for sight seeing was a very big help for the first time in the area visitor. I must admit the shower was to die for, not only for the visual but for what it delivers. I can not fault this listing in any way. I would highly recommend where this listing is located with 2 train stations within a very short walk to either. We will use this listing in the future. Well done Orestes.
This was certainly a wonderful place to stay, and the definition of what Airbnb is about. An affordable way of staying in an exciting city, in lovely accommodation that is very close to transport and good restaurants. The hospitality made me feel very much at home, and so although I was traveling on business, it made the trip feel like a vacation! Many thanks.
I stayed at Orestes' lovely place for 4 nights. It was great- conveniently located, clean, comfortable. Bathroom was particularly nice. House dog, Kiki, was sweet. Orestes was easy to communicate with and lovely in person. Overall, a great place to stay.
Somos el Pere y la Núria hemos estado unos días en casa de Orestes agracerle primero su amabilidad y recomendar a cualquier persona que quiera una estancia en New York ir a su casa. Esta es preciosa muy bien (website hidden) sensación es estar en una zona residencial a dos paradas de metro de Manhattan. Nos queda un muy buen recuerdo de dicha estancia no dudamos si volviesemos ir a su casa nuevamente .
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 where 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!
