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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

George's apartment is very conveniently located, it's a short walk from the city center, there is a shopping mall nearby, and Tartu train station is also in walking distance. The apartment is very nice, everything was as described. We didn't meet George, but communication was smooth and his friend who handed us the keys was also very nice and helpful.

A nice stay of 4 days in Tartu. We thank George for the trust he showed in us. The apartment was quiet, and near of the town center, which is practical when you don't have a car. When we arrived, a nice person who was not the homeowner gave us the keys without any problem. We felt somewhat like at home, having all what we needed (towels, kitchen equipment, Internet…). A big thank to George and Liis; we have very fond memories of this moment.

George was very easy to communicate with, and I really appreciated his flexibility regarding check-in and check-out. I also liked the lots of information George provided both about the apartment and about the country/area. The apartment was more than enough for me as a single traveler, I had everything I needed. The location is very nice, close to everything, yet not in the middle of the city.

This was my first reservation on airbnb and everything went very well. The house was very pleasant. The apartment had clear guidelines on how the property is used. Our trip was stress-free and easy. Surroundings were also very nice. There were several cafés nearby and everything was within walking distance.

We stayed in the apartment of George for three days. The apartment is spacious and bright, it has good view from the windows. The center of the city and shops are located about 15-20 minutes by foot. The apartment has everything you need, but in a minimal amount: 1 saucepan, 1 frying pan. There are no sharp knives. A bed with a memory-form mattress was not very comfortable for us, but we've read about this in the description and should predict it) We are very grateful to George for his opportunity to meet us when we could! (We couldn't decide the certain time of arrival and departure from apartment in advance). George was very kind and polite. He left a lot of information and tourist maps and gave much recommendations about city. We have very good impressions about our rest in this apartment. Thank you George!
