About the Host, Milena
I'm a graphic designer, freelance. Travelling is my biggest passion. I love receiving guests because I have the opportunity to meet people around the world without leaving home.
Our house is known as "The Boss House". Why BossHouse?! Boss is the nickname we have given to our father, Bernardo. He is the Big Boss! The head of the family, adoptive father of many friends! After back from a long trip to Sicily, in Italy, where he only stayed B&Bs, he decided to do the same here. And we support the idea!
I live here with my father Bernardo, he is retired teacher and my niece Beatriz who is studying journalism.
