The SpaceTHE APARTMENT:
As a standard apartment in an Arabian Gulf country, this apartment is relatively small in size, but by no means tiny. The living room includes a living area with large sofa, arm chair and TV unit, in addition to small dining table.
The rest of the apartment is connected by a short hallway which leads to the kitchen, second bathroom, second bedroom and the master bedroom at the end.
THE MASTER BEDROOM:
The master bedroom (which is where you'll be staying) is largest room in the apartment, and since I keep all my clothes and storage in the 2nd bedroom, the master bedroom is left with a lot of space to move around. The room also has access to its own private balcony. There is also a set of speakers in room in case you felt like playing some music.
In the room you'll find a small wall-mounted clothes rack with plenty of hangers for you to use if you wish to hang your shirts and trousers.
There are also two relatively large wall-mounted shelves which you can put your clothes on. Also feel free to use the bed-side tables which include small drawers for more private storage.
As the lucky guest staying at the master bedroom, you have my small gym at your disposal, its nothing fancy, it includes a bench, 2 dumbbells, and 1 weight bar.
THE MASTER BATHROOM:
The master bedroom has its own private bathroom which is equipped with a large bathtub, a large sync counter, and toilet seat in addition to some small storage units for towels, toilet paper and PH products.
Upon your arrival you can expect to receive a complementary shower kit which you are welcome to use during your stay. Guest AccessAs my guest, you'll have access to the living room and the kitchen at all times. The kitchen is equipped with an electric stove, cold/hot water dispenser a microwave oven, a washing machine, a mid-size fridge.
You are welcome to use any of these equipment whenever you like to, and even feel free to fix yourself a meal using any of the ingredients I have available in the fridge and spice cabinet.
The only space in the apartment that would be off-limits is the second bedroom, which where I'd be sleeping during your stay. Also the second bathroom. Interaction with GuestsI am a very friendly approachable guy, you can come up to me at any point for a conversation or questions. I'll be checking up on you periodically to see if you need anything.
During week days I'd be at work during the day which could limit our interactions, but I stay at home during the weekends, so if you'd be up to going out to explore the town, let me know as I would be happy to show you around. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is full of similar apartment buildings and it is predominantly residential, although there are a few minim markets and shops around.
There is a busy main road (Belajat St.) nearby and you'd need to cross it to get to the public beach nearby, which could be tricky as there are no road crossing spots for pedestrians (unfortunately its like that everywhere in Kuwait).
There is also a supermarket nearby (10-15 minute-walk) minutes if you needed to buy some groceries. Nearby (15-20 minute-walk) there is also a complex full of interesting global restaurant chains, it has a nice sea view and the walk towards it can be nice in the evening.
Also there are some good health spas and health clubs nearby (10-15 minute walk) at the Palms Hotel, Movenpick Hotel and Rimal Hotel (all next to each other). Getting AroundYou can easily fetch a taxi from the main road (Belajat St.) at all times during the day except for early morning/late night hours, or weekend evenings too because of the traffic.
Kuwait doesn't offer plenty of transportation options, everybody who doesn't drive here (like myself) have to rely on taxis to get around. When you're here we can discuss taxi fares to make sure you don't get ripped off by taxi drivers over here. Other Things to NoteSince a cat lives in the apartment, cat hair is bound to be found around from time to time. Also Kuwait is infamous for its dust, although all windows are closed shut, dust still makes it into homes. I do try my best to clean up regularly around the house, and I do suggest that guests do as well within their own space to avoid inconvenience.
Although you are more than welcome to use my washing machine and detergents to do your laundry, the dry cleaner downstairs can do your laundry for free (they owe me a favor). However they usually take a day to finish the laundry and deliver it back.
