HOW TO BOOK? (tips)
-Read my profile.
-Complete YOUR profile.
-About 3 months before you come, send me a request for 1 or 2 months (specifying what would be the potential duration of your total stay – i.e. 2 initial months + maybe another 2 months).
-Ask any question you have – I’m always happy to answer them.
-I never book more than 1 or 2 months here, on AirBNB – but these are renewable upon arrival.
-I work on a 3 months deadline. It means I make room planning 3 months ahead only. Which means it’s useless to send me a request 6 months before you come, or the week before you arrive. It also means that once you’re living at my place, you have to tell me well ahead if you want to extend your stay.
-All rooms are somewhat similar, and each AirBNB ad is a description of all rooms, and portrays a picture of each other room. Booking a room on AirBNB means booking ANY room within the apartment. This being said, I’ll do my best to meet your needs and preferences! Guest AccessEverything
