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.

Even though her career took her out of the country while we were in the apartment, Dina remained very accessible via WhatsApp. What needed to be taken care of was promptly by the building's janitor. The apartment is a bit dated but I thought was a good value for the price. Location is superb. Within walking distance to a lot of modern (and traditional) shopping. I walked every morning during my stay to the Egyptian Shooting Club, one of the nicer country clubs in Cairo, for tennis lessons.
I always have a great time when staying at Dina's. It is truly a home away from home.
This was my 2nd time staying at Dina's place and if it was even possible, this stay was better than the 1st. I loved it so much i extended my stay 3 extra days and would have stayed longer but another guest was checking in. The apartment is in a quiet off street of the lovely Mohandesian area very close to many attractions. It is clean, spacious and most important, she has very good internet which is problematic in many areas. Dina is accommodating and checked in on me to make sure my stay was going well. I will definately be staying at Dina's place again and give it the highest recommendation for those looking for a home away from home.
Nos sentimos muy bien fue fácil de llegar pero como no sabíamos que el aéreo puerto era cerca pagamos 35 dólares fue muy caro de regreso solo pague 70 L.E sugiero que a la llegada enseñen a usar la cocina, la lavadora... Etc volvería a tomar esta casa.
I had a wonderful time at Dina's place. I did not have an opportunity to meet her but communicating with her was easy. It is a lovely apartment in a very nice neighborhood on Cairo. The kitchen is large and air condition throughout which is great for the heat of Egypt. I would stay here again recommend Dina's place to anyone seeking a warm and comfortable home away from home!!
Great stay! Good location close to Zamalek and short trip to downtown. Rooms were large and comfortable. Her family was near and very helpful. Definitely recommended.
Appartment conform to what we expected : quiet, spacious. The neighborough is very quiet and all accomodations you need is present : supermarket, pharmacy, restaurants, ... The underground is about 20 min walk. The area is a nice area : fashionable and well lively ...
Dina is a very friendly person. If you have any problem, you can count on her, she's available, by mail, phone.

About the Host, Dina
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 :)
