I'm David, a french ski instructor, working in chamonix for several years, I'll be happy to give you some tips about the good places to go in the mountain!
My flatmate is Ainhize, a Basque climber and runner, working also here for several years.
We can speak french, english, spanish, russian and basque.
We are easy-going and happy to meet new people from all over the world,
We'll be happy to share our knowledge of the mountains and give you some tips about where to go. Plus, we provide you some maps and guide book during your stay so that you can enjoy the hiking in Chamonix mountains.
The chalet is located 10 minutes walking from city center and tren station.
It has your double room (with a big double bed to share in couple, a wardrobe to keep all your stuff, towels and bedclothes are included. Needless to say during your stay it is your bedroom and nobody goes into).
There is a lounge with sofas, with Internet if you need to check something (ADSL 30MG wireless, I provide the password). In the same lounge there is also a table to organize dinners looking to the Mont Blanc.
About the kitchen, It is full equiped and you can dispose of everything to prepare your own meals and also keep it in the fridge, we also have another table if you prefer to eat there.
The shared bathroom with a bath and washing machine that you can use it if you need.
Finally we have the room where we sleep.
We also have a terrace and a garden but in winter is really cold to be there although the sun is shining directly to the chalet.
You may be able to park your car very easily in the property, and we have a hut to keep all your mountain gear ( skis, etc...)
Our intention is to make you feel like home in the best place to enjoy activities, we will be there to help you and to suggest the best of Chamonix.

I had a great time staying David's place. Quiet place within 5 minutes drive from Chamonix center. Room itself was also cozy and clean. David himself is polite, gentle guy, and he made a great host. I took David's ski tour/lesson for 2 days. if anyone stay in his place, you should take his lesson/tour, too!
J'ai eu de la chance de trouver cette chambre en dernière minute.
1ère expérience avec airbnb plutôt satisfaisante.
La propriétaire est très gentille et avenante.
I very much enjoyed my stay with David in Chamonix. The room was neat, clean, and quiet, and the flat is conveniently located about a 15 minute walk from Chamonix center and only about 4 minutes from the nearest stop in the ski bus route. David is an excellent host and provided great recommendations on where to rent equipment, where to ski, and where to eat.
Shame I couldn't stay longer. Nice little place. Warm and friendly. 2 thumbs up.
Very good place to stay in Chamonix. David was very helpful and accommodating. I stayed for a week and commuted to Geneva for work - which gave me the opportunity to have 2 full day lessons with David. He is an excellent teacher and a very nice person.
Davi and Ainhize are the perfect example of the huge advantage of a good Airbnb room on a hotel room. My experience in chamonix wouldn't have been even close to what it was without them.
David is one of the most generous, friendly and warm host I have ever met. He is super knowledgable with regards to the area, ski and any other question I had. David solved some of my problems even before I understood they exist. You can never have these kind of advises even from a 5 stars hotel's concierge.
David and Ainhize are the perfect hosts, they were there when I needed but nevertheless I had the option to rest my body a sole in the room after the long ski days.
In my last day I was lucky to ski with David as an instructor. H e is definitely the most talented instructor I have ever had, I felt his full control of my technique and he gave me perfect and accurate tips all along that day - definitely the right guide for learning and improving your skills.
Thank you Daviv and Ainhize for a wonderful vacation in chamonix!!!
