The Space

I'm an American academic living in Cairo with a spare bedroom for interesting, friendly, and generally pleasant travelers and researchers. My apartment is in the Korba district of Heliopolis, about 20 mins by taxi, 30 mins by metro to the heart of downtown Cairo.

The apartment is large and clean and is in a lovely building built at the end of the 40's. It's within walking distance to restaurants, bars, the metro, and occasionally protests! The apartment has wi-fi and a massive balcony. It's on the second floor but please note there is no elevator.

I'm afraid I can't accommodate single women at present, but the apartment is LGBT friendly. The guest bedroom has a queen size bed and, of course, you're welcome to make yourself at home while you're here.

  • Hi,

    I totally recommend this place. Adam is a great host, he helped me since the very moment I arrived to Egypt. The place is near to many coffee shops, restaurants and even a supermarket. Thanks, Adam, for the tips, they were very useful.

We're from a mix of San Francisco and Cardiff, via Oxford and Cairo. We speak 8 languages between us and we both work with Arabic (teaching, translation, literature). We share a love of Indian food, especially South Indian, as well as anything new, although Kate's a vegetarian whereas Adam is quite a carnivore. We're tidy, quiet and friendly, not brilliant at early starts but then again we don't stay out late partying either.
