A private and quiet bedroom in a centrally apartment in a newly built house with all the main attractions up to a 15 minute walking distance away. Since I use the bedroom myself from time to time, please inquire in advance about availability. Thanks!

The space

This listing is for my private bedroom and is only available when I am not there myself. The bedroom is a room in a 3-room apartment in a newly built house. The bed is perfect for one but accommodates up to two people if needed. I can also provide a comfortable mattress or portable bed for an additional person. Pillows, blankets and towels are also available if asked for in advance. The other room of the apartment is a large living room and the third room is another bedroom, which might sometimes be occupied.

The bathroom has a washing machine, electric floor heating and a steam sauna with a bathtub, a jacuzzy, a regular shower, a programmable massage shower and coloured LED lighting. In the kitchen the guests can use a roomy refrigerator with a freezer, a microwave oven, a toaster, a steamer, a water boiler and a ceramic stove with a programmable electric oven. Since the house is situated near the edge of a hill, the kitchen and its glass-walled balcony also offer a picturesque view of the city below.

A parking lot is available for your vehicle. Parking is free, access to the parking lot is protected by a gate with a keycode and the parking lot offers the best view in Tartu. If you wish, we can also make a separate arrangement for the use of my car, which you could use to tour the city or explore the countryside nearby. Same goes for my two bicycles, which is actually the preferred method of exploring Tartu if you want to go beyond just the centre.

The fenced and secure yard around the house is lit and although the house is situated almost in the middle of the city, it is away from noisy traffic and offers peace and quiet almost 24/7. The only sounds you will hear are the singing of birds and you it is even possible to meet squirrels and hedgehogs near the house.

All the important places in the centre of the town are up to a 15 minute walking distance away from the house. The bus stop is 50 meters, pub Krooks 200 meters, the Tartu University main building 400 meters, pub Zavood 500 meters, the Town Hall square 800 meters and Emajõgi (the river) 900 meters away from the house. I'd be happy to show you the nightlife in Tartu, help you meet local people and can take you to almost any nightclub for free if you wish.

NB! Please note that this listing is for a living room of a three room apartment. It is private in the sense that there won't be anyone else sleeping in the room, the sleeping is in a hidden corner, a temporary wall can be used to create even more privacy and the guests can have the room all for themselves, but the doors of the two smaller rooms open into the living room and sometimes the smaller rooms might be occupied.

A note about the bathroom: a recurring theme in some reviews is that the bathroom was not very clean, but that is only because of the bathroom sink and the mirror in front of it. In fact they almost always been cleaned, but the water in the area is quite coarse and mineralized, so even after using tap water just a few times, the sink and the water splashes on the mirror once again show mineralized water residue. To keep the bathroom looking clean, the sink and the mirror would have to be cleaned after every single use, but that is not very practical.

Guest access

The guests will have access to a gated parking lot with free parking (the code of the gate is 7531), the main guest room, the kitchen, the bathroom and the balcony.

Interaction with guests

I'd love to have a friendly chat about your plans when you arrive, give you some pointers and suggestions based on your plans and help you with some tourist brochures about Tartu and Estonia in general. If I have the time, I can also take you to some of the nearby pubs and cafes. I love boardgames and always love to teach and play with new people (simple fun social games like "Dixit" are my favourites).

Other things to note

Please note that this is a primarily a student apartment, so the listing is probably better suited for younger people or those young at heart. Although I like peace and quiet, I may still have a few guests coming over from time to time to watch a movie or play some boardgames. You are always welcome to socialize and join these activities, but if you want complete silence in the whole apartment, then that may not always be possible.

The host was away during my stay at his place but I was able to use the facilities. It is a comfortable place.

Clean shared flat. Fortunately, Anton offered us a choice of futon in the living room or his room (with a proper bed, door/privacy). We took the second option. This suited me more (40 something years with husband). This was our first Air BnB booking so we were unsure of boundaries (very British!), but Anton was a cool dude and used to hosting and did his best to be relaxed and welcoming.

This was the second time that I have stayed at Anton's and was just as pleasurable as the first. Apartment is clean and modern, and is very conveniently located close to the city center. I'll stay there again my next time in Tartu.

A lawyer by day and a photographer by night.

Passions - passionate about getting organized, becoming disciplined, life-long learning and improving myself physically and mentally in every aspect in order to be all I can be.

Sports - daily push-ups, pull-ups and sit-ups should pretty much cover it. And cycling, although that's really mostly for transportation. I'm also into squash, football/soccer and mixed martial arts, although the ability to practice has lately been severely limited due to other obligations.

Books - manuals, how-to's, summaries, best-of's, coffee table books and audio books.

Music - contemporary symphony, club & dance and classical rock ballads.

TV shows - when I still used to watch TV (or rather download episodes to my multimedia player), it used to be documentaries, news, "60 minutes", CNN & Discovery, Horizon & Nova, CNBC & CNN/Money, "Yes Minister' and 'Yes Prime Minister', 'Dragon's Den', 'The Apprentice' & 'The Apprentice UK' and 'The Amazing Race'. Lately reading longform articles on my e-reader has surpassed watching documentaries on my multimedia player (or tablet, which is what the modern PMP has morphed into).

Movies - action, passion, suspense & love. You got'em? I want'em! "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon", "The Matrix", "Cruel Intentions" plus anything by David Fincher ("Fight Club", "The Game", "se7en").

Cuisines - high carb in the morning, high protein in the evening, low fat throughout the day, anything that's both healthy and tasty fits the bill.

Humor - dry/sarcastic, clever/quick witted, friendly.

Fashion - alternative, casual, contemporary, minimal.

Smoking - no.

Drinking - very seldom and only socially.
