About this listing

I love the rustic Mediterranean look about the place...arches of welcome. My garden is an oasis...try the hammock! And yet we are near Asuncion's new commercial/financial center...restaurants galore! Home-made jam anyone?

Description

The space

Lovely room with comfortable double bed for individuals or couple traveling together, ample closets, private bathroom, fresh sheets and towels, WiFi, AC, on cobblestone street of a quiet residential area in the midst of diplomatic residences, lush with greenery, close to where it is happening in terms of great restaurants, pubs, mall (Paseo Galeria and Shopping del Sol-a nice walk away); top museum a few blocks away; 20 min to downtown (seat of government), airport & bus terminal. English, Spanish, German, Portuguese spoken! Great breakfast served on verandah or dining room! Let me know if you need airport or bus terminal pickup. Very friendly dog! Two shy kitties...all rescues!

Guest access

Hope you get to enjoy the hammock strung under the verandah by the back yard!

Interaction with guests

I have lots of local information to share to make your stay easier and fun. Just ask!

The neighborhood

Dotted with diplomatic residences...lots of trees and plants along the cobble-stone streets...and close by...great restaurants, malls and more...

Getting around

Several bus lines run a couple of blocks away...safe taxis can be called and I know of several drivers with vans for airport runs or even sightseeing in town or around the country.

Other things to note

Lots of people do their fitness walking around the grounds of the local German school's outside perimeter...days and evenings, just a half block away...and oh...be sure to browse the gardens of the flower and plant sellers who took advantage of the numerous ycua (springs) in the area to set up shop.

Staying with Erna was an amazing experience! She went above and beyond to make me feel welcome, which I greatly appreciate! Also, she was willing to help me obtain things I needed before starting work. Her home beautiful. It is a wonderful place to stay!

Erna went above and beyond the expected - from helping me look up city tours, recommending places to eat, helping me get taxis, hanging my newly cleaned clothes, and making some incredible breakfasts (even when I had to leave at 4:30 a.m. for the airport - she was up with a smile and a hearty breakfast!). Her house is a pleasant retreat (and an easy taxi ride) from the hussle and bussle downtown. A beautiful space with an amazing host. I give Erna's place two thumbs up and if I am in the area again - this is where I will stay! Thank you for a WONDERFUL stay Erna!!!

It was perfect. She took care of all my needs and more, like a spetacular breakfast. The house is beautiful and the localization is awesome. Even in my job she helped with a lot of tips. Thank you Erna, see you next time Matheus Ruas

After reading the excellent reviews Erna was still more than expected. She went above and beyond any expectations of hospitality. I felt at home in her wonderful and comfortable house upon arrival. Cannot say enough about her willingness and expertise in helping and suggesting things to do. I have made a friend and hope to return. I feel I'm a better person for the experience. Thanks so much and say hi to Coco. John

Well, the house house, the room and the location, were all very nice, but what made this visit stand out from the rest was the hostess, Emma herself. She is a professional translator, apparantly in great demand because of her excellent command of English and Spanish, but also because of her attention to detail, regarding subtle differences in meaning between words, her understanding of culture, and how certain words and actions might be interpreted, plus her innte instinct to perceive the intent as well as the meaning of the speaker. This honed skill seems to have spilled into her role as a hostess. She provided me helpful hints, not only the best way to phrase something in Spanish, but also about business etiquette, tipping waiters, hailing taxis, et cetera. But what stood out the most was that I felt more like I was visitng a long-time friend instead staying a complete stranger. Either we do have a lot in coommon, or her years as an interpreter have turned her in to some kind of a chameleon, who picks up on and reflects the moods of her clients. I suspect it's a bit of both. Anyway, I felt completely at home, and am extremely happy that I had the privelege of staying at her home.

Erna's place is excellent but the best is Erna herself! She was always keen to make my staying as comfortable as possible and I can confirm it worked very well! Breakfast was delicious and the location unbeatable. Thank you Erna for all your efforts.
