The Space

The flat has the 1940's caracteristics of a Beiruty flat, spacious with high ceilings and airy with lots of light. It has a large communal space, a cozy kitchen, one bathroom and an extra toilet. It has two very pleasant verandas, one of them is above a busy street, the other faces the morning sun and the quieter neighborhood. I'm a set designer so the flat is full of objects bought and brought here and there with their particular stories.

Your bedroom has a double bed, Ac, TV with cable and a very decent size. You will be sharing the rest of the flat with me (though I'm often not around). I love meeting people from various backgrounds and think that airbnb is a great platform for that.

The flat is situated in Gemayzeh at the heart of Beirut's night scene, 5 min walk from Mar Mikhael the upcoming and trendy neighbourhood, downtown, and the highway to go either North or South.

There is a very large choice of restaurants and bars at your doorstep. It is quite an ideal location for someone on holiday wanting to explore the city.

  • Nathalie's flat is exactly as billed – super-central, airy, comfortable and incredibly decorated. She was a very considerate host and even bought me water and some breakfast stuff. Gemmayze can be a touch on the loud side if you're noise-sensitive, but with the window closed and the a/c on I was perfectly happy. Thanks Nathalie, you have a gorgeous home.

  • One word-AMAZING! Nathalie's apartment is beautiful, 2 terraces and plenty of space! I wish i could transport it to Paris. The location is great, in the heart of Gemmayze and all the barst and restaurant of the neighbourhood and an easy walk to Mar Mikhael, Saifi and Downtown. I would definitely recommend staying here. We got the keys easily from Natahlie's sister as she was away and unfortunately didn't get a chance to meet her.

  • Nathalie and her apartment were an absolute delight. The location in Gemayzeh couldn't be better for a stay in Beirut - on the main street but never noisy! Nathalie has brought this classic beiruti apartment to life with her wonderful taste, it is large, airy, light with wonderful high ceilings and every convenience. My friend and I stayed for a week, including a few days when Nathalie was home - she was helpful with tips for the neighbourhood and a lovely warm person. Highly recommended!

  • Nathalie's house is a wonderful place, for me it felt just as my own home. And if you love the old lebanese houses (plus combined with modern design) it's a dream. It's right in the middle of gemmayze, but still there is a certain calm, and much less noisy than you would expect. i just loved the kitchen with this cosy feel, lamps and picknick table. And the spacious living, so light and tasteful. Nathalie is your true lebanese host, always caring and checking if everything is ok, she is very delightfull. And hey it's def not her fault (!!) if you sometimes run out of electricity or water. that's just lebanon: you cant escape it nowhere!
    this for sure a great place to enjoy wonderfully amazing beirut!
