Interaction with Guests
I live in the same building so I will be there almost all the time for any questions/help.
I go out almost daily though but I'll be reachable by phone.
The neighborhood is in the heart of Mohandessin, the street is quiet yet 2 min walk to Gamet el Dowal &/or Shooting club & all the restaurants & popular cafes are within walking distance.
Within the same street, there's a nursery, dry clean, laundry, supermarket, pharmacy, restaurant & cafe.
A great advantage is that we have 24 hrs security by the police, just because there's an embassy right in front of our building.
Taxis, buses & a metro station are all within walking distance.
Other Things to Note
This is a family building, please smile to everyone you meet up & down the stairs :)
Within the flat, it's all yours, please feel free!
The apartment is fully equipped, well located, there lots of different places very close where you can find anything to eat. 5 people can fit perfectly here. Our host Dina is so kind, and in spite of she was abroad, she was always there (whataspp) to help us with everything. This place is highly recommended. If I come back to Cairo I will stay in this place again.
The house is in a great position next the all the main attractions of the city. Spacious and comfortable, with balcony and a lots of sofas and chairs. The price of the flat is really good and the flat itself could be probably more expensive given such a position. Even though we had few troubles with the internet connection, I can openly say that the flat is worth the price and the welcoming approach of the owners is warming.

- old apartment not modern at all
Dina's place was enormous, suitable for a bunch of friends or family. Although the place was a bit old, it was very comfortable to live in.
Dina has been very responsible and willing to help. She took me to the market to show me around and spent time with me at a very local coffee shop. After discussing about places i wanted visit, she tried to arrange different itinerary and offers for me, which was deeply appreciated.
One downside of it is the price.
Listing description was accurate and the apartment was very nice with good value for the price. Neighborhood was safe, I didn't feel uncomfortable. Only bad thing was internet did not work. Dina was responsive and available and offered to let me use internet at her family's in the same building but I was out doing tourist things most of the day and didn't want to pester her family late at night! Overall great flat and highly recommended.
Dina is friendly, personable, and easy to connect with. She is organized and has lots of connections.
Her flat is large and well set up for families. It is quiet and safe (across the street from an embassy with permanent guards). There is no elevator, but the flat isonly on the third floor, so it wasn't a problem.
It is close to major streets, and modern shopping but not to the metro or the downtown, so you have to take taxis or busses to get to attractions and museums.
Her relatives live in the flats below you, and they are friendly and helpful. Things that were missing (like towels and toilet paper) were supplied quickly and cheerfully. They even made us some delicious food!
The flat was clean and not dusty, with the exception of the kitchen. Dina tried to arrange a second cleaning for the kitchen, but it wasn't great. Dina was out of the country at the time but I feel like, if she had been in Cairo, the kitchen would have been cleaned quickly and well. That was our only disappointment, and the only reason for less than 5 stars.
Dina was the perfect host. The apartment that I'd originally made a reservation for wasn't available, due to unforeseen circumstances, but she offered me an alternative option in the same building. She was extremely honest with her description of the new apartment, and generously offered it at a significant cost reduction. She lent me a phone with Egyptian SIM to use for the duration of my stay, and even invited me into her family home and offered me food for the annual Eid feast. The apartment was huge and as described. The location is a little far from a metro station, but other than that is was great.

I studied engineering & worked for multinationals for quite some time. I then took a decision to quit the 9 to 9 job to become my own boss. In less than a year, I had already started several things. I did some startups in the food & beverages business, the travel & tourism industry, I made little dresses for my nieces, I developed iPhone apps & I wrote a short story that got published in a book :D
My prime passion is travel. I have visited 20% of the world (a lot yet to go!). I believe in freedom & taking life simply because we are all guests on mother earth until our time comes, so let's make the best of that journey.
When I am a guest, I will respect your house rules. When you are my guest, I'll let you do whatever you feel like doing :)
