I am a Brit who has rented a large apartment and furnished it myself in Chennai. I moved to India to study yoga. I set up an IT/Consulting company and currently am living in Toronto setting up an on-premise cloud computing business for SMBs.
I still rent the apartment. A good friend of mine is renting one of the rooms with his girlfriend. The other rooms I try to rent to whomever fits the (website hidden) is included and electricity and maid.
It is the capital city of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, located on the Coromandel Coast off the Bay of Bengal. Chennai is the fourth most populous metropolitan area and the sixth most populous city in India. As of 2011, Chennai had a population of 4.68 million within the 174 sq km pre-expansion area administered by the municipal corporation, and an extended metropolitan population of nine million.
Chennai's economy has a broad industrial base in the automobile, computer, technology, hardware manufacturing and healthcare industries. The city is India's second largest exporter of software, information technology (IT) and information-technology-enabled services (ITES). A major chunk of India's automobile manufacturing industry is based in and around the city, which leads it to be called as 'The Detroit of Asia.
Was nice to stay in the house, it has a central location which is great. Nathan is kind, and I had good times with other travellers. The house is nice.
Nathan was very responsive during the booking process and ensured that I knew exactly where the location was. We arrived very late in the night 2am and the place was difficult to find even though our cabbie knew his way around. His roommate was kind enough to guide us in and open the door and make us feel welcome. The room itself is sparse and did not have anything other than a floor mattress in the bedroom and a divan with a passable mattress in the living room. The kitchen divides the room where the other permanent roommate lives so it does offer decent privacy. The bathroom was usable and did not have any towels but did have tissue paper. There was wifi available, but i had an Ethernet cable that i connected to the router. The place seems to be close enough to stuff, but not sure if i would call it convenient.
