About this listing
* THIS LISTING IS JUST FOR ONE OF THE ROOMS I HAVE AT HOME. CHECK THE OTHER ROOM AVAILABLE IN MY OTHER LISTING (https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/759672)
An 915ft² apartment, vintage style, beautifully furnished and with many plants. Perfect for foreigners and students, it's located in Alto da XV, on a quiet residential street, but near to really cool bars and restaurants. Also is very handy because is located few minutes from downtown and the UFPR and it has several bus lines to various parts of the city.
I have 2 rooms to offer guests in my house (check them out in the photo gallery). Besides the rooms, the apartment has 2 bathrooms, living room, a delightful balcony, a beautiful well equipped kitchen and a complete laundry.
You can use for free
• Wi-Fi broadband internet
• Cable TV and DVD
• Telephone (to receive calls)
• The whole kitchen
• Laundry machine, and
• enjoy the presence of Vani, a friendly housekeeper who, twice a month, cleans the house and washes clothes, and has an excellent conversation (she also speaks italian).
I'm a graphic designer and a friendly and helpful host; fluent in English and Spanish. At home I like to chat and cook, but specially meeting new people. And if you want so, I can be your guide for your first steps in the city and in the Brazilian culture.
See you soon!
Bring good mood, and take away good memories and gifts. Meanwhile, let's:
• Keep the house clean.
• Cook togheter sometimes (if you want to)
• Wash our dishes RIGHT AFTER use them
• Bring our friends home, but keep them under control
• Share the whole house cleaning.
• Be careful with the stuff.
• Save power and water (not just for me, for Earth)
I hope my guests to bring home good mood and good experiences. That we can share experiences and help each other whenever we needed.
Sunny living room and balcony. As you see you can always bring your bike if you want so!
The house is really good and you will have everything you need. It's located in safe area and close to bar, supermarket and bus stop. It's also next to the city centre. I can't write something about Julian because he was travelling during my stay and I never met him, but all the friends we have in common said only positive things about him. I shared the house with Susana and Ari, two host of Julian and I had good time with both, good conversation, dinner etc.
So it was definitely a good stay for me.
Bianca, Julian's other half, received me warmly to their beautiful home. I had a fabulous time during my stay. Bianca is very receptive, helpful and cool person. She gave me a quick tour of Curitiba during the Corpus Cristi holiday and good recommendations where to go on my own. I had an amazing experience meeting Julian's family and their friends. I appreciate all the advice that they gave me for my trip in Brazil. Thank you for sharing the pinhais and yerba mate drink. The pinhais are really addicting; I am glad I came during the winter time.
The neighborhood is away from the hubbub of the touristic attractions, but the local buses stop a block away from the house. Local restaurants and bars have incredible food, and they are just a block away from the house (they are along Rua Itupava). PolloShop is a small mall that locals go to do their daily shopping, and it is on walking distance from the house. It was more than I expected from the listing, and I hope to come back some day when the Praça da Bicicletas (working title) is up and running.
Vivre en compagnie de Julian et Bianca a été une expérience agréable. Malgré que je sois de nature timide, ils ont su me mettre à l'aise dès les premiers jours passés en leur compagnie. L'appartement est magnifique et l'on ne manque de rien. Si vous avez envie de cuisiner, besoin d'aide ou simplement de discuter, Julian et Bianca sont définitivement les personnes que vous cherchez ! Merci encore pour votre hospitalité.
Living with Julian and Bianca was a nice experience. Even if I'm a shy person, they knew how to make me comfortable during all my stay in their home. The apartment is wonderful and you lack nothing. If you want to cook, need help or simply to discuss, Julian and Bianca are definitively lovely hosts. Thank you a lot again for your hospitality !
Julian et Bianca ont été des hôtes formidables, accueillants, conviviaux . Je regrette de n'avoir pas pu rester plus longtemps en leur compagnie. L'appartement est sympathique, décoré d'objets insolites et uniques. L'atmosphère est résolument sereine et zen, on y mange bio et tout est fait dans le respect de l'environnement. Julian est venu me chercher avec sa coccinelle vintage 1974 à la gare routière, une expérience unique. J'ai passé d'excellents moments à Curitiba en partie grâce à leur hospitalité. Encore merci Julian et Bianca et à bientôt je l'espère
Julian e Bianca foram pessoas maravilhosas , acolhedores, simpáticos. Lamento não podia ficar mais tempo com eles. O apartamento é agradável, decorado com itens incomuns e únicas. A atmosfera é decididamente sereno e zen, a comida é orgânica e tudo é feito de acordo com o ambiente. Julian me pegou com sua fusca vintage de 1974 na estação de ônibus, uma experiência única! Eu tive um grande momento em Curitiba, em parte graças à sua hospitalidade. Mais uma vez obrigado Julian e Bianca e espero em breve!!
Sometimes it is nice to meet people that make you really feel at home. Julian and Bianca are like that, maybe because they really commit to meet their hosts and not only to give them a place to sleep. What a wonderful week in Curitiba. Thank you again and again.
A flat with a lot of personality, green spirit and life! Julian and Bianca are warm and welcoming. They're perfect hosts and make the guest feel comfortable and special. A short but lovely stay!
Staying at Julian´s home is really a great experience. The apartment is beautiful and has a wonderful vibe, lively and peaceful at the same time. And Julian is definitely a fantastic host, absolutely helpful and hospitable regarding his place and your visit to Curitiba and extremely friendly and fun to be with, as everyone around his place. I totally recommend it!

About the Host, Julian
I'm a graphic designer and former owner of a webdesign company. Nowadays I spend my time with woodwork and natural building.
Also I really love cooking, sailing, biking, mountain hiking, gardening (the balcony can prove it), digging & fixing old furniture and - because of AirBnB - meeting new people, cultures and experiences.
I'm 36 now, have my books, a guitar and an old 74 Beetle that can take you and me to some good trips around.
