Guests have use of the yard for guests and their family with prior notice to owner Interaction with GuestsI am very hospitable and have been awarded "Super Host", but like to give my guests plenty of privacy. We have different entrances, so it's rare that I have a chance to interact. If I do, it's always pleasurable to chat a while and get to know my guests a little more informally. I will be here to greet you and give you a tour before you get settled in. I will be available downstairs for any questions or issues. The NeighborhoodWalnut Street is located where the lagoon exists, so having a water view is really a plus on this little street where you can park only on one side of the street. The houses are a mix of various architecture. The street dead ends at the lagoon, which makes it only a destination street not a thoroughfare. It's extremely peaceful and quiet here. You will sleep peacefully on this dead end street. Getting AroundThere is plenty of public transportation. Two Ferry locations to take you to SF to the Ferry Building in San Francisco (near the Embarcadero). To Bart to SF and SF Airport. Four blocks away, to downtown Oakland from Walnut & Santa Clara Ave. There are also Zip cars you can rent, and also Uber & Lift. I am within walking distance of just about everything that is available here in Alameda, a hospital, Alterena Theater (plays), historic movie theater, restaurants and shopping on Park Street (main street). Tennis courts, parks, beach, shopping center (South Shore). Other Things to NoteI'm friendly and have an outgoing personality. I have been in the hospitality industry for 20 years and have loved interacting with hundreds of people at events that I've managed. My entire career, I have dealt with the public in many different industries.

The SpaceI have a clean and friendly room available in my sunny and spacious 2 bedroom apartment in beautiful Alameda. We would be sharing one bathroom, a large kitchen, and the large and sunny living-room / dining-room. Since the apartment is upstairs it gets a nice breeze and lots of sun. Wifi and television are available for your use. Public transportation, grocery stores, restaurants, shopping and a movie theater are an easy short walk away in this lovely safe and quiet neighborhood. San Francisco is 20 to 40 minutes away (depending on traffic) via bus, ferry, BART or driving your own car. Street parking is easy and readily available. I have a small and private court yard for you to enjoy your morning coffee amongst the flowers or perhaps you would enjoy doing some grilling for dinner on my little barbecue. Alameda is centrally located in the San Francisco Bay Area with easy access to the many activities available for you to explore. The bedroom I offer has one full size bed, plenty of storage space, and lots of morning sun. When I ask my guests what they like about staying in my simple home, cause it's not the Ritz, they say the bed is super comfortable, the room is clean and quiet, the bathroom is kept clean, the flat has a cheery, happy feel to it, and they enjoy my hostessing. Guest AccessBathroom, Kitchen, Living Room, Garden, Hang Drying available ( no dryer) Interaction with GuestsI prefer to meet my guests when they arrive and give them the "tour", key, and answer any questions they might have. If I can't be there to greet my daughter would do so. The NeighborhoodI have a lovely neighborhood. My flat is above a shop on a block that has a dry cleaners, caterer, a great consignment shop, and a beauty salon. It's quiet, friendly and convenient to everything. There's a meditation center just across the street. My guests have all told me they really enjoyed staying in my home. Getting AroundMass transportation (check out AC Transit) is at the corner. You can catch the "O" bus directly to San Francisco or take it to BART. Walking and Biking is a great way to get around in Alameda cause it's all flat, and the speed limit on the island is 25 mph. Oh, yeah and there is a ferry to San Francisco as well. One can rent bikes at Alameda Bikes on Park Street. Other Things to NoteThe parking in front of my flat is 2 hour parking, 9am to 6pm Monday thru Saturday, except holidays. However there is plenty of neighborhood type parking all around in which one can leave their car parked several days in a row.

Laundry Room is available to guests staying and is adjacent to living room with a shutter door to close and one SMALL bathroom. Please see photos, as one guest, who recently stayed, was surprised that the bathroom was small. No others have had a problem with a small bathroom and that is the reason I am mentioning it.

Do have friends over from time to time, but would inform you of their coming. I occasionally interact with guests and If I do, it's always pleasurable to chat a while and get to know my guests a little more informally.

    The Spacemid century modern art filled one bedroom bungalow with private courtyard + fountain (and lots of other yumminess too) This is a gorgeously bright (half of a duplex) luxury one bedroom bungalow with a beautiful eat in kitchen, old fashioned + charming full bathroom that includes a tub to relax in (and thirsty towels + bathrobes), a private brick courtyard that features a wine barrel fountain for dreamy weekday or weekend peacefulness, as well as table/chairs/umbrella, and a couple of Adirondack chairs for a chill afternoon or evening, and a gas bbq. It's perfect for that California al fresco meal--or lots of them! There are two steps at the front door into the kitchen, and three steps at the back door out into the courtyard. One of the walls of the brick courtyard is smothered in old fashioned white roses in summer, other walls are filled with bougainvillea and a princess tree and shrubs. It is a quiet + sunny private spot of heaven, perfect for working outdoors on your laptop if you need to get something done while you are here--and the wifi works great outside. Otherwise, the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine + a snack, or enjoy a bit of a bbq. Top of the line super comfortable queen bed coupled with 600 thread count sheets + lots of down pillows + a duvet makes for an excellent nights sleep in the sunny bedroom. All of the closets and dressers are empty and available for your personal belongings. Every imaginable chefs tool is found in the nicely set up kitchen for the traveller who likes to cook and is a little done with eating out every meal; several half barrels bursting with culinary herbs are scattered around outdoors, and citrus trees abound, mixed in with bougainvillea and princess trees, roses and a small lawn. We always plant tomatoes, so you may just be in town when they are ripe--if so help yourself! We make sure to stock the basics--ziplock, foil, a decent choice of condiments, s+p, spices, etc, in the kitchen. Living room is a nice mix of mid century furniture with original art mixed in (check out the huge San Francisco lithograph behind the leather recliner) plus a couple of throws to cuddle up with while watching the 47" flat screen TV--or playing one of the board games stored in the hall closet. The comfortable couch turns into a super comfy double bed for extra overnight guests--extra linens and pillows and topper are in the hall closet. The lounge + footstool are amazingly comfortable and mid century classics--we arranged them perfectly for tv viewing as well as reading or working on your laptop. This beautiful bungalow boasts rugs + original art and comfortable everything, as well as lots of peace + quiet + privacy. We set it up to be (we hope!) the perfect short or long term retreat. Wifi/internet is fast, TV is internet ready and also has Directv and Netflix. Laundry shared with the other half of the duplex. Private off street parking for one car. No smoking anywhere on the property, indoors or out. We are rather clean freaks, and the bungalow is fully cleaned between guests. We have our cleaner come in, and we personally wash and change bedding and towels ourselves to make sure it is crisp and clean and just the way we would want it ourselves! Our safe neighborhood is located in one of the old and beautiful areas in Alameda--lots of Victorians and Arts + Crafts homes, big trees, mature gardens. We are five blocks from the beach (pretty much a perfect morning or evening walk) and also five blocks from Safeway / Trader Joe's / Walgreens / etc, coffee, restaurants (restaurant recommendations + bart/bus schedules, as well as other local recommendations + insider tips are in the binder you'll find on the kitchen table), yoga and pilates; 10 minutes by car to Oakland International Airport, 35 minutes to SFO via BART. The transbay bus that goes directly to the financial district in SF is three blocks (they say 20 minutes), as is the regular bus, and BART is close as well. The g+ bus picks up five blocks away. Yes, we do rent our mid century bungalow by the week and month, and we accept long term rentals for several months as well. For long term rentals there is an additional security deposit. PLEASE NOTE: 1) We are dog friendly (for MOST dogs--please send us a message before booking to make sure your dog qualifies) so if you are bringing a pet along, please let us know as we have a pet kit that includes food + water bowls, a leash, etc, for your furry friends' comfort. 2) As well, there is a REQUIRED PET DEPOSIT of $495 to ensure your dogs good behavior and supervision by you during your stay, as well as cover any damage caused indoors or out. It is refunded after your stay if there is no damage. And be sure to read our Pet Policy and ask any questions you may have. 3) NO SMOKING indoors / outdoors or anywhere on the property. 4) CHECK IN is 5pm, CHECK OUT is 11am. Please bring your photo ID as we will check it. 5) If you are considering a stay in our mid century bit of luxe coolness, please complete and verify your profile. We are more comfortable hosting new people in our place when we know more about you--so please tell us a little about yourself and the reason for your visit to the San Francisco Bay Area! Also, our mid century bungalow remains available until you or someone else reserves it with airbnb by submitting a formal reservation through the site. Thanks in advance, and we look forward to meeting you soon + sharing some of our fave discoveries in this great area!

    The SpaceCome stay at my place in Alameda - this is a very clean, quiet, nicely set up place to enjoy a vacation, recharge, or work from. The place is located on the upper level of a historic Alameda home and has a living room, tiny bedroom, kitchen, bathroom (with two windows and a clawfoot bathtub), and shared deck with a view of the Oakland hills. While the place is technically a one-bedroom, the feel is more like it's a studio as there are no doors separating the rooms (except the bathroom). So I am listing this for one person, however, it can easily accommodate two sharing the bedroom, or one staying in the bedroom and one on a bed/airbed in the living room. San Francisco is easily accessible by car, ferry, or Transbay bus (30 minutes to Downtown SF). BART stations in Fruitvale and Downtown Oakland are also easily accessible by bus. The bus stop is about 4 blocks from the apartment (about 7 minutes by foot). Last not least, my car may be available for you to use during your stay. Ask me if interested! Please also just ask about check-in times if you'd like to check in early or leave late; I can accommodate most requests. Alameda is a very beautiful town and worth a visit when you are in the Bay Area. Located on an island along the shores of Oakland, it has many Victorians, a beach with the San Francisco skyline in the background (often you can see the fog over the city rolling in from the ocean while it is still sunny in Alameda). It has a bustling business district (about 10 minutes walk from the apartment) with cafes and book stores, an organic grocery store, artisan bakery and natural meat and fish store (there's stores like Walgreens, Safeway, Trader Joe's as well) and restaurants offering an astonishing variety of cuisines, including German, Burmese, Italian, American, Mexican, Vietnamese, Mongolian, Cuban, Japanese, Spanish, and Chinese. There's free WiFi in the apartment. Street parking is usually easy near the house and always possible within one block. You will have the place entirely to yourself while you're here, and I hope you enjoy the place as much as I do. Feel free to let me know if you have questions.

    The SpaceThis space is behind the main house and through a garden. We have pets, however they do not roam the yard. Guests may see the cat from a distance on occasion. The furnishings and water heater are new. Day use for parties is also an option, starting in the afternoon. Please inquire about day use rates and accommodations. Guest AccessThere is wireless internet access and cable tv. Alameda is an island with water on all sides. The island is flat, which makes biking or walking enjoyable. Alameda has the highest number of Victorian homes in any one area in the world! Great restaurants and theatre within walking distance. Lincoln park is directly behind the cottage. Interaction with GuestsI am generally home to greet the guests and always available during their stay. My thriving Bridal business is done through the main house, however it is easy to find me whenever I am needed. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is welcoming and quiet.

    The SpaceBeautiful Victorian built in 1890, guests will have the entire top two stories to themselves, including a large dining room, sunroom, exercise room (we use it for yoga and meditation in the morning), a third-story back deck with exercise equipment. The dining room and living room are suitable for gatherings and family meals. The dining room table (with leaves inserted) seats as many as ten comfortably. Guests are welcome to use our china and silverware. Just plan on washing the china and silver by hand. Guest AccessWarning!! Due to low, unscreened windows and steep stairs, our house is not suitable for small children. We will probably leave the key to the house on the kitchen table and leave the front door unlocked on the day that you arrive since we will be heading out on a trip ourselves. Full laundry and kitchen with all implements and condiments needed for cooking. Cable TV with Apple TV (streaming Netflix), Internet access throughout and a relatively new desktop Mac. Sunny third floor deck with views of the bay area. Interaction with GuestsWe may not be here to greet you, but the house is yours. We will leave extremely detailed information about the house.

    The SpaceWelcome to The Green Dragon Guest House! The view and immediate proximity to Crown State Beach make this space truly special. The large windows of the living room look out at a view that spans the Central Bay Area, from Silicon Valley on up to downtown San Francisco and the Bay Bridge. You are just a few steps away from a nearly mile long state beach, where sunsets are stunning! Your bed is also super comfortable, according to other guests who have stayed here. With a beach umbrella and beach lounging chairs available for guest use, this is a beach vacation in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area! In addition, the bedroom itself is lit romantically and candles available upon request. Breakfast "essentials" such as coffee, whole milk, bread, jam, butter and eggs are offered for your use (and your own cooking). Guest AccessYour room is tastefully furnished with a king sized bed, window with a view from the bed of the bay and beach, BOSE mp3 stereo system, and a dresser with drawers to store clothes. Guests have their own sink, and share the rest of the bathroom with your host or other guests (see "Bay Views Across From The Beach"). You have full access to the fully stocked kitchen (excepting breakfast essentials, you provide your own groceries, of course. By stocked I mean pots, pans, dishes, utensils, spices, condiments, oils, etc.), plus the living and dining room spaces that offer a 54" flatscreen with TiVO DVR and HBO, leather couch, and dining for up to six around the table. Interaction with GuestsI am often present at the guest house during your stay, oftentimes working quietly in my office space ~ which adjoins and is open to the living room space. I am an amenable and caring host, and want you to have this be a wonderful experience while you are here. If there is anything that I can do to make your stay more comfortable, please do not hesitate to ask. I'm also a Bay Area resident since 1976 and know the area pretty well. If you are sightseeing, I can tell you everywhere you want to go and see. I am also a Master Hand Analyst (modern day palm reader), which is one of the things I do for work. Guests who stay here can also receive a FREE 30-minute reading from me upon request of me, provided I am in residence and we can find a mutually agreed upon time to do the reading (a $75 value). The NeighborhoodRelatively quiet and suburban, right next to the beach. During the day the street is fairly busy, but it is no freeway by any means. We are an easy 15 minute/one-half mile walk and/or short drive to the nearest mall which includes a 24-hour Safeway, a Trader Joe's open from 8am to 9pm, and a Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurant for healthy fast food. Though the street outside does have modest traffic on it during the day, at night it quiets down, making it sometimes difficult to remember that Oakland is only about 7 minutes away. There are also a number of restaurants in walking distance including a Chipotle Mexican Grill and a great sushi restaurant. The Trabacco Restaurant serves elegant rustic Italian, perfect for a special night out followed by a walk home. Getting AroundDriving There is easy parking available nearby, on the street of this suburban neighborhood. From SFO (no car) I recommend you take the BART train from the airport to the West Oakland BART station, and then a taxi, Lyft or Uber car service from there (Lyft and Uber are both available via smartphone apps). From Oakland International (no car) I recommend you take a taxi, Uber or Lyft. Using Public Transit Nearby The AC Transit Bus Line #20 travels conveniently between Shoreline Drive and the Downtown Oakland 12th Street BART ("Bay Area Rapid Transit") Station, taking approximately 20 minutes for the trip and with a bus passing by approximately every 30 minutes from early in the morning until just before Midnight. BART times are less frequent on weekends and evenings, but are generally about every 10 minutes during the weekday, taking about 15 minutes travel time from Oakland to downtown SF, and running from about 4am until just about Midnight. Thus it takes between 45 minutes and 1 hour to travel to or from San Francisco and the apartment, by public transit. The AC 20 Transit line mentioned above runs through the two main shopping districts on the island, as well as past the shopping mall, located 1/2 mile to the East of my apartment along Shoreline. Guests with cars will need to park on the street, which is generally fairly easy to do provided you are willing to walk about one block, as parking immediately next to the apartment is limited. Check street signs! There is an Alameda Taxi service, and both Lyft and Uber also run here ~ these are online services where people rent their cars as taxis, and are generally more affordable than a taxi but you must have downloaded the relevant smartphone app AND set up an account in advance to use them. 3.5 miles and/or a 40 minute walk+bus ride away from the apartment is the Alameda Ferry terminal, with service to San Francisco, Oakland, and other destinations throughout the Bay Area. The ferry offers free parking at the terminal, and is a perfect way to get a better taste of the Bay Area than simply driving around by car. SF is a town you can walk through, so consider taking the ferry to it if you are sightseeing. More info on getting around Alameda or throughout the Bay Area can be found through the Bay Area's 511 website. It can calculate ANY form of transportation for you around the San Francisco Bay Area. Other Things to NoteSoap and shampoo provided. I do not make your bed each day, as this is not a hotel. I keep the apartment clean and neat, and the apartment is thoroughly cleaned professionally once every two weeks. There is an MP3 hookup for playing music on the living room stereo, and our wireless internet is, as one guest put it, "insanely fast". Send me a message if you have any other questions. A guidebook of local attractions, restaurants and amenities (wash n fold, etc) is available upon your arrival.

    The SpaceThis is a beautiful Victorian home in a historic block of one of the Bay Area's nicest and most beautiful cities: Alameda. The location is incredible. There is a grocery store down the street, the beach is a few blocks away and there is a large shopping mall about two miles away. Guest AccessKitchen, both bathrooms, living room/office, WiFi, printer/scanner, washer/dryer, spacious back yard, side yard. Interaction with GuestsI will be around the house most of the day doing repairs or studying so you may ask me questions or make requests at just about any time you like. I am open to giving rides to the Oakland Airport and BART for $15 if I am available. The NeighborhoodBeautiful parks and colorful Victorian houses. Friendly people with easy access to stores, downtown, groceries. San Francisco can be reached through the public transit system or a 30 minute drive. Oakland Airport is 10 minutes away. Getting AroundThis house is one block from the bus stop. The O bus runs every half hour during commute time and every hour during non-commute hours from 6:40AM to 10:40PM. The O East bus can take you to the Fruitvale BART train station in around 10 minutes. The BART train can then take you all over the Bay Area. The O West bus can take you directly to San Francisco in 40 minutes. There is plenty of free street parking. Other Things to NoteI may doing repairs or maintenance in the yard. This will not interfere with your stay in anyway.

    The SpaceCharming 1891 Victorian a block from downtown Alameda: fully restored movie theater, restaurants, coffee shops, book stores, etc. It's also blocks from a shopping center and our two-mile-long beach, which looks out across the Bay to San Francisco. This is a two-story home with an updated kitchen with vintage stove, dining room and living room on the bottom floor, and bedrooms on the top floor. Three bedrooms -- one set up for two little girls (not babies) with a queen bed on the bottom and a twin bed on top, one room with a double, and one bedroom with a queen bed. Large back yard. Two bathrooms, one with a clawfoot tub, one with a shower. City access is easy via AC Transit buses, ferry, or car. Guest AccessThe entire house is available. Interaction with GuestsI'll be out of town while you're here, but have a handyman on call. The NeighborhoodPark Street in Alameda is just two blocks away, and offers dining, a movie theater, book stores, coffee shops, ice cream shops, etc. A bit further is Southshore mall, with grocery stores, clothing stores, and more restaurants. Southshore is located on the two-mile stretch of Alameda beach, with views of the bay and of San Francisco. On summer weekends, you can rent bikes and beach chairs there, and find food trucks. It's a lovely town. Getting AroundThe Alameda Ferry offers service to Oakland and San Francisco. The BART train is just off the island and offers a way to get into the city without driving, however AC Transit is generally a better option because the buses are nicer than the train, and you can catch them on the island. Driving into the city is also an option, and if you have 3 or more people in your car, you can use the carpool lane across the Bay Bridge during busy hours. Other Things to NoteThe garden will be automatically watered, so you don't need to worry about that. The cats should not need any care. They have large bowls of food and water, and the cat litter box cleans itself automatically 10 minutes after the cat uses it. If it smells bad, you can make it run by pushing the button furthest to the right. If there are any problems with it, please contact me. PLEASE DO NOT LET THE CATS OUTSIDE EVER.

    The SpaceThis is the upstairs half of an updated Victorian duplex located in a quiet neighborhood, so glorious light and high ceilings are what's in store! Our flat is filled with beautiful original art with karastan rugs on the hardwood floors to add that touch of warmth. The beds are super comfy with high quality mattresses for a great nights sleep--so you have plenty of energy for work or to explore while you are here. High ceilings, original fixtures and period details, a super deep jetted soaker tub in the bath, and every chef's dream kitchen makes this a fabulous retreat for short or long term. It's easy to whip up dinner for 10 in this well equipped kitchen that overlooks the rear garden--or a quick breakfast with fresh coffee or tea to enjoy out in the sunny and peaceful courtyard. Luxury linens cover the beds, accompanied by fat down duvets and pillows (with extra linens for the queen pull out in the living room/library). King bed in the master bedroom, along with a flat screen tv/dvd combo and a comfy deep chair to read in. Beautiful extra long twin bed in the small second sunny bedroom is the perfect bed for an adult or a child. All of the closets and dressers are empty and available for your personal belongings. Spa bath boasts a deep jetted soaker tub to relax in with a glass of wine, as well as a separate shower. Thirsty towels and two robes that are perfect for lounging on weekends are included. Wifi, internet, cable tv, dvd player, Netflix, and the living room/library includes plenty of books as well as some classic board games and cards to enjoy while you are here. Internet and wifi are fast. Laundry + garden shared with downstairs flat. Private off street parking for one car. We are rather clean freaks, and the flat is fully cleaned before each guest arrives. We have our cleaner come in, and we personally wash the linens and bedding and make up the beds to make sure everything is clean and crisp and just the way we would want it! The gorgeously mature rear garden includes a gas grill for a nice and chill weekend bbq, patio heaters, adirondack chairs, citrus trees, and pots of fresh herbs to add to that culinary masterpiece called an omelet. It's also the perfect place for you and your laptop getting some work done during the day. A table with umbrella and comfy chairs to work in. Wifi works great, and it's quiet enough to hear yourself think. Our safe neighborhood has plenty of street parking, large and mature trees, and is five blocks from the beach (hello perfect morning walk) and six blocks from groceries, coffee shops, restaurants galore, post office and drugstore, as well as several parks. Regular bus line is three blocks, bus to downtown SF is also three blocks (they say 20 minutes), BART is close, g+ bus is five blocks, and the ferry to SF makes it fun and easy to check out the city while you are here--or stay on the island and go back and forth for that conference you are in town for. The Oakland hills that are across the freeway let you get close up and personal with towering redwood filled forests and amazing hiking trails that are off the beaten path. Cool bars and restaurants are very close, as is yoga, pilates, and the best fresh made ice cream in the area (Tucker's--usually has a line). Lots of super cute neighborhoods to explore with your dog--and make sure to check out all the wonderful gardens you pass on the way. (I am a gardener, what can say?) Oakland Airport is ten minutes by car, SFO is 40 minutes by BART train. The bus that's 3 blocks away goes directly to BART as well, so it's easy to use BART for Oakland or SFO. We are close enough to Silicon Valley to commute via the new bus that goes directly to g+ headquarters. We have put together a fat binder filled with all the fun things to check out, from all the award winning local wineries to the huge art + antique fair on the first Sunday of the month (Grandpa and I saw Diane Keaton there last year), hiking, dog walks, day trips, our fave local hangouts, as well as suggestions for what to check out during your stay. LONG TERM OR DOGS: We do rent by the week and month, and we accept long term rentals for several months up to a year as well. For long term rentals, there is a security deposit of $1000, as well as a pet deposit of $595 if you are bringing your dog along for the fun. When you are inquiring, please let us know if you are bringing along your pet or planning on long term so we can make sure to include the security deposit or the pet deposit in your fee. PLEASE NOTE: 1) This is not a flat that is appropriate for young children because of the two staircases. If you have a child under the age of 8 or so, we will have to regretfully decline your booking. Sorry about that, and safety first! 2) YES we are indeed dog friendly (for MOST dogs, please check with us to make sure your dog qualifies), so if you are bringing along your dog, please let us know as there is a pet deposit of $595. As well, we have a pet kit for you--water and food bowls, snacks, etc, to make your furry family member feel at home. PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY: your dog is NOT allowed on any of the furniture EVER, including beds, couches, chairs, stools, ottomans, etc. If your dog is on the furniture, we must have it professionally cleaned, which means that we will be charging you for that cleaning, which quite typically runs at least $450 if not more. Please understand that we want to be able to continue allowing dogs and their people to stay in a great place like this, and other guests expect to sit on the couch or bed or whatever and find it clean and free of dog hair or dog smell or dog whatever! So be cool and make sure your dog follows the rules and all will be great. Please read the house rules regarding dogs--the deposit and what we expect of you as a good dog owner (poop pickup in the rear garden, etc) and what we expect of your dog as well! 3) NO SMOKING anywhere on the property--either indoors or out. 4) CHECK IN is 5pm or after, CHECK OUT is 11am. 5) Please bring your photo id as we will check it. 6) If you are considering our flat, please complete and verify your profile. We are more comfortable hosting new people in our flat when we know more about you. So please tell us a little about yourself and the reason for your visit. Also, our flat remains available until you or someone else reserves it with airbnb by submitting a formal reservation through the site. Thanks in advance and we look forward to meeting you soon!
