Second-floor apartment with an excellent view, and in an area that is quiet at night but close to downtown. It is 40 sq. m., with one bedroom, WiFi, computer, printer, and TV. 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, a guest computer, a printer/scanner, and a flat-screen TV with over two dozens channels.
There are up to 3 sleeping places (1) It has a bed (200 * 160 cm) with one of those "memory foam" mattresses. (2) A recently purchased couch can become an extra bed (195 x 125 cm). (3) Finally, an air mattress (180 x 120 cm) is also potentially available.
Towels and linen will be provided. There is also a washing machine. There is no dryer; they are not too common in Estonia yet. However, the machine spins fast enough to enrich Uranium, so stuff comes out fairly dry, and then you can put your clothes overnight on the a drying rack.
Two yoga mats are available, for dedicated practitioners. A bike path runs beside the building, and a park is located across the street. I have a small personal library for your enjoyment (mostly science).
For distant travelers, I have a plug/socket electrical adapter.
It accommodates up to four people, but use a little common sense. Two open-minded couples for a long weekend, and your friendships will become noticeable stronger, 4 reticent singles for a whole month and your friendships will be severely tested. I removed the bedroom door.
There is a restaurant and decent hotel next door (20 m), another two restaurants within 300 m , and two shopping malls 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
The level of interaction depends on you. 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...
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 just an extra charge for short bookings. It becomes negligible when spread over several days. Please do not use it as a licence to leave the place dirty.
Finally, please note that I live there whenever I am in the city, so this is not a hotel. You are not a client, but rather a guest, almost in the real sense of the word. This is how Airbnb began, but then it got commercialized. 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 since I joined the AirBnB community and I hope that trend will continue.
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 the place in a weird colour.
