About this listing
We love to host people and make them fill at home, my wife and I have been hosting wonderful guests for more than three years, we know what you need, because we have been guests before. You can be sure, our home is your home in Caracas. Welcome!
Our apartment is located in Caricuao, 30 to 40 minutes from the city center. Using the Metro you can go anywhere in Caracas in less than 35 minutes.
Caricuao is a popular Parrish. it has nothing fancy but is safe and quiet.
The apartment is full furnished and is where I live with my family.
We are friendly people and we've been using airbnb as guests before and we enjoyed it very much.
We follow the original idea of airbnb of helping yourself by helping others while making good friends an a little bit of money in the process, so before any request please take the time to fill up your profile, also tell us a little bit about you and your partner -if apply-, what are your motives and expectations.
In other words:
If you don't fill you profile (picture of you and description) I'm sorry to say that I wont answer your inquire.
Remember that there will be a relationship between you as a guest an us as your hosts.
It's not about the money, not in our case (who can makes himself rich charging 15 bucks per night with breakfast included?).
So, you will be welcome in our house, let us know a little bit about you in advance.
You will be able to do your laundry, make your own meals if you want, taste the best arepas in the world in the morning breakfast or one of my home made breads, connect to internet and have good talks with us if you want.
We do not have cable TV but we have some DVD's for you to watch.
We take care of our guests as if they are part of the family, that makes us the opposite of an hotel. If you want that, go ahead and contact us.
You will be in your home, if you want to cook you cook, and as in your home, you will leave things the best you can, don't you? In short you will have full access to everything in our home.
Interaction with Guests
We are a family (now a family of two) and we are willing to count you as a member of our family if you want.
The only rule to follow strictly is the no smoke rule. Though you can do it in the lobby of the floor.
Llegamos a la casa de Manuel y Morella en la mitad de nuestro viaje y fue realmente como llegar a nuestra casa, tanto así que ni siquiera quisimos salir... nos sentimos en un hogar despues de 40 dias sin ver el nuestro y en medio de un pais inseguro.
El departamento es amplio con una vista al atardecer desde el living (para nosotros, hermosa), la habitacion es muy cómoda y limpia, la cama impecable y un armario gigante.
El baño y la cocina muy completos y ordenados.
Si van a Caracas deben hospedarse alli.
Simply put, Manuel & Morella are the heart of why airbnb was created. They made us feel at home and we instantly had a connection like we had known each other for years. The accommodations were as advertised: simple but comfortable and clean. Morella was amazing. She picked us up from the airport, chaperoned us thru the entire bus terminal experience, cooked us amazing food, and showed us the love of a Venezuelan family. Manuel was just as brilliant. Maybe the nicest guy I've ever met. He actually took half a day on a Thursday to show us around Caracas proper, take us to the teleferico, and show us his favorite lunch spot. It is no exaggeration when I say our trip to Venezuela would not have worked without them. If you are planning a visit to Caracas or deciding whether you should PLEASE GO SEE MANY & MORELLA! You will not be disappointed.
My friend and I were nervous about flying into Caracas. We had heard the city was incredibly dangerous and protests had been going on just a few months prior to our arrival. Luckily, we found Many and Morella! They were gracious and attentive from the beginning. Many emailed me to see if we had any dietary restrictions and to offer help with our travel plans. He and Morella picked us both up at the airport. They actually had to make two trips instead of one as my flight was delayed and I didn't arrive until 2am.
I can't say enough good things about them. They welcomed us into their home and made us feel like part of their family. They are also a wonderful couple and so cute together..(even after more than 20 years together!) We had great conversations with them and were able to learn a lot about Venezuela. They are well traveled and interested in meeting other people and learning about other cultures. We stayed with them on the last night of our trip as well and Morella was kind enough to take us into Caracas and give us a little tour of the city center before dropping us off at the bus. I would highly recommend staying with them!
As you can see from Manuels and Morelas many references, they are magnificent hosts and people. They are so wonderfully hospitable, generous, and, of course, supportive. Everything is true, this is perhaps the best place in Caracas to stay! You will have a genuine good experience and you get to meet wonderful human beings.
We had such a fabulous (and quick) stay with Manuel and Morela.
They were extremely welcoming and helpful. All communication before had been friendly and clear. Manuel was so flexible when our plans changed slightly. In addition, they were able to help extra people we had met on our flight and gave them a safe place to stay for the night.
Their home is comfortable and full of great paintings. The breakfast was delicious! We all enjoyed a fantastic walking tour of the city.
Manuel and Morela were incredible hosts- generous, hospitable, knowledgeable and friendly. I am so grateful to them and glad that we were able to turn a 18 hour wait for a flight, into a mini-trip to Caracas.
Hi our stay at Manuel was super friendly and nice time, Manuel and his wife are super sweet his wife went everywhere with us and explain our super Caracas. We had fun
We have had great fun with Manuel and his wife. Thanks for everything, we will definitely come back. We come back for sure. Greetings: Germain @ Agata
Fue mi primera vez en airbn y honestamente excelente! Manuel y su esposa More son excelentes personas y me trataron con mucho cariño. Recomendo muchísimo a los que desean quedarse en Caracas!! :o)
