About this listing
Second-floor apartment with an excellent view, and in an area that is very quiet at night but close to downtown. 40 m 2 (c. 430 f2), with one bedroom, WIFI and TV with many channels. Large bed with memory foam mattress and extra couch-bed, if needed.
Clean, modern, second-floor apartment with an excellent view, and in an area that is quiet at night but close to the centre. Area = 40 m2 (430 square feet), with one bedroom, intercom, and key entry. Wireless internet, and a non-flat-screen TV with dozens of channels.
It has a bed (200 * 180 cm) with one of those "memory foam" mattresses. A recently purchased couch can become an extra bed (195 x 125 cm). Finally, an air mattress (180 x 120 cm) is also potentially available.
Towels and linen will be provided. There is also a washing machine.
Two yoga mats are available, for dedicated practitioners. A bike path runs beside the building, and a park is located across the street.
For distant travellers, I have some plug/socket electrical adapters, and even a 230->120 voltage converter.
Several types of phone charges are available.
My personal library is at your disposal.
There is a restaurant and good hotel next door (20 m), another two restaurants within 300 m , and a large shopping mall, and another one under construction, 600 m away. The central plaza is 1 Km. away. So, everything is easy to reach, but not close enough for noise to be a problem.
Guests will have access to the whole apartment.
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as you want. At a minimum, you will get the keys and a brief introduction when you arrive; we will arrange how you will return the keys, and we will likely meet again when you leave. At the other extreme...
The neighbourhood is close to the centre, but far enough so it is quiet at night. It is a family neighbourhood, with people walking around and jogging at all times of the day.
Several buses stop about 300 m away. From there, you can go anywhere in town. The centre is only 600 away.
Some extra information about the city, a couple of maps and touristy stuff like that will be available upon your arrival.
Other Things to Note
1.-Be specific about your arrival time. Sometimes I have things to do and places to be.
2.- Note the dimensions and descriptions of the sleeping places. Your sleeping arrangements are up to you.
3.-The apartment is NOT child-proofed. At what age do kids develop a little common sense?
4.- Smoking out the window is still considered smoking.
5.- The "cleaning fee", if any, is more of an extra charge for short bookings. It is negligible when spread over several days. Please do not use it as a licence to leave the place too dirty.
Finally, please note this is not a hotel, but rather a home. You are not a client, but rather a guest, almost in the real sense of the word. Please tell me a little about yourself (name, home town, reason for your visit, additional guests, local contacts, etc). I have met several interesting people doing this.
No smoking. No pets. No illegal recreational pharmaceuticals. No exceedingly loud gatherings. No undocumented guests. Within those constraints, feel free to party as much as you want.
It is customary in Estonia (and Canada, and most of the civilized world) to remove one's shoes inside a home. Please use the slippers provided (new ones are purchased regularly).
Treat the place with a little respect and "as if it were your own". Please do not take that phrase literally. Call me before you decide to hire contractors to paint he place in a weird colour.
