This brand new, cozy apartment will give you this real I'm-at-home-feeling while on vacation without blowing your budget. Check out the details - it's worth it!
Summary: 1 bedroom, 1 living room / fully-equipped kitchen area, 1 bathroom, 1 sea-view balcony
The place: The living room and the bedroom accomodate up to 4 people and are perfect both for groups of friends, couples or a family. You can enjoy a great meal with your beloved ones on the sun-view balcony. Or watch the sunrise after clubbing all night long. Or just relax after a long day at the beach.
The highlight: Within walking distance there is a small marina and a "secret" beach, which is rarely used by others.
The neighbourhood: The building is situated in a quiet, family friendly area, approx. 8 km north from downtown Varna, right next to Euxinograd - the former royal summer palace. You'll be delighted to discover a small playground and a fish pond in the beautiful back yard. There is a 24/7 groceries store nearby (20 min walk / 5 min by bus). Parking lots are always available around the building. If you prefer using the public transport, there is a bus stop in walking distance.
The hosts: A friendly Bulgarian couple with an international mindset. Mariana and Stoyan will be glad to be your hosts and answer all of your questions in English, German, Russian and Turkish.
Respect the neighbors and don't burn down the place.
What a wonderful place! Kristina and her Father welcomed us into their home and were really helpful, sharing useful local information. The apartment was spotless and the balcony was great for lazying in the sun looking at the sea.
The location of the apartment was perfect for us. You can stroll down the hill to the local sandy beach and fish restaurant (you must book in advance, it's very popular). It is a bit of a hike to get back up the hill but worth it!
The local buses are easy to navigate to Varna and the local supermarket. We recommend the Sea garden, it's lovely to walk through and had a lovely arts and crafts market on when we were there. The beaches around Varna are much more crowded so nice to have our own beach tucked away by the apartment.
As a teacher I have to go away in the summer holidays and it is hard to find a place to go that is not overcrowded and too expensive but this was a perfect holiday and would highly recommend this apartment. The hosts couldn't have been more welcoming.
First of all, we're so glad to meet with kristina's dad who is so hospitable person. Her parents think everything for guest's comfort in flat.
Flat's location is so nice, very easy to go to city centre and golden sand beach by bus.
Flat has got big balcony with perfect view, you should eat breakfast in this balcony.
I suggest this safe, cosy and luxury flat so we will stay the same flat in varna next time.
We (4 people) had a great 4-week holiday at Kristina's place in July 2013. We dealt with her parents, Stoyan and Marianna are very very polite and tactful people. What ever question/issue we had —they were ready to help. The place is great, you get more than you see on the pictures. It is absolutely clean, brand-new, neat and cosy. You get all the stuff you need.
"Secret" public beach is just 10 minutes away. You can easily reach Varna with public transportation or by car. We appreciated a lot fishing at the pier, next to the beach.
And last but definitely not least — my wife is very "picky" on the quality of living person and she liked it all the way from start to end without a single issue ;)
Definitely strongly recommend!
I'm Kristina, 28, a Business Communication Management alumni based in Berlin. I'm currently renting my parents' property in Varna, a beautiful town in Bulgaria where I originally come from. I discovered Airbnb during my exchange semester in Guadalajara, Mexico and immediately loved the platform as it is so convenient and gives you this welcome-back-home-feeling whilst traveling across the world - and all this at a reasonable price.
When not busy with job hunting I like exploring new locations in and around Berlin, trying out new outdoor activities or simply relaxing with a new exciting book in my hands.
I'm passionate about traveling and love getting to know new people on the road. I'd be glad to get to know you someday too... :-)
