We had a great stay at Orestes house! Location is perfect in a nice quit street and in just 5 minutes you're in the centre of Manhattan.
Orestes is really helpful if you want tips ore advise for your city planning.
I would recoment this place to everyone I know.
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.
About the Host, Orestes
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!
