Looking for a cosy, comfortable apartment with great energy near the UN and city centre? Search no further :o)

The Space

Your home away from home is perched on the top (6th) floor, and flooded with light, personality and great energy. It is smallish, but newly renovated and furnished with love.

It offers you a bedroom with a double bed (160cm wide), fresh bedding is of course provided. You will have your very own cupboard with coat hangers and shoe boxes to get settled in properly.

Travelling as colleagues or friends, and uncomfortable sharing a bed? A high-quality inflatable mattress (203x102x38cm) can solve the problem. It inflates/deflates electrically in under 5 minutes. I have tried it out myself and it is really comfortable.

The living area holds a sofa, armchair, TV & all-zones DVD player.

The modern kitchen is equiped with a large fridge, a freezer and a table seating 4 - 6 persons. I like to cook so you will find everything you need to prepare your own meals. Basics such as spices, salad oils, tea, coffee etc. are at your disposal.

The balcony overlooks Salève, the Geneva "house mountain", and is accessible from both the kitchen and the bedroom. Both rooms face out over an inner court yard with no traffic, so you will enjoy total silence at night. In the summer, my balcony becomes a little garden, and i would appreciate if you could water my plants if you're staying longer. Thank you! :o)

The bathroom has a modern and spacious walk-in shower. Towels and hairdryer are provided, and usually, there is also soap and shampoo. Toilet is conveniently situated in a separate room.

Strong free wifi is available throughout the flat.

You are super close to the UN organizations, and only 8 minutes' walk from the main railway station. Bus number 8 takes you there in just 3 minutes, or across to the city centre in 10 minutes (lake, shops, restaurants, old town). It stops right around the corner. Further bus and tram stops are each under 5 minutes' walk, and literally take you everywhere.

Grocery stores are just a few minutes' walk away, and so are two beautiful parks where you can hang out on a sunny day.

Can you tell? I truly love my home :o) And i have no doubt that you will, too.

Guest Access

Everything! I want my guests to feel totally at home.

Interaction with Guests

Very frequently. I love being available for my guests, and answer all the questions they may have. Being a frequent traveller myself, I totally understand the need to get a feeling for where you are headed, and what to expect. Also, i am happy to function (email hidden). So no question is ever too much, or too "stupid" :o)

The Neighborhood

My neighborhood is close to the "touristic" Geneva, and very well connected through public transport. In any case, the city is small by most standards, so nothing is ever really far away. However, my home is also just remote enough from down town to assure complete peace and quiet, which isn't the case everywhere.

Getting around

Bus number 8 stops just around the corner, and will take you directly to the railway station (in 3 minutes), or across the bridge to the touristic Geneva. Just one block away, there are more trams and busses. Also, the airport is just a 10-minute taxi ride away.

  • My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed staying in Monica's lovely apartment just outside the main city center. Monica provided us with a very detailed checklist to help prepare us for our stay and her place was incredibly clean and inviting. The place has wonderful views from the balcony and is so convenient for visiting the UN or walking into town. As this visit to Geneva came at the end of a three week trip throughout Europe for us, it felt great to stay in a relaxing place. Thanks again Monica!

  • Je garderai le meilleur souvenir de l'appartement de Monica. Il est parfaitement situé à deux stations de bus de la gare. Et pour moi qui séjournais à Genève pour raisons professionnelles, son emplacement était idéal. L'appartement est confortable, bien agencé, joliment décoré et parfaitement aménagé. Rien ne manque, on s'y sent bien et il donne envie de prolonger le séjour. La vue depuis le balcon est apaisante. Monica fait visiblement tout pour que le séjour de ses hôtes se passe au mieux. Mille mercis pour pouvoir utiliser tous les ingrédients de base pour la cuisine (épices...). J'ai apprécié le choix de thés et de tisanes que Monica a la gentillesse de laisser à disposition de ses hôtes dans une grande boîte qui est un vrai coffre au trésor.

    Mille mercis pour votre message bienveillant, chère laurence. Je suis ravie que vous ayez apprécié votre séjour dans ma petite maison. Quant aux légumes laissés dans le frigo, vous avez bien fait. Je vais en toucher un mot à ma femme de ménage. Bien à vous, et peut-être que j'aurai le plaisir de vous accueillir une prochaine fois?

    My landlord unexpectedly imposed some extensive maintenance work to my apartment on me. For this reason, i had to cancel this previously accepted reservation. Not being able to honour this commitment truly pains me, and i extend my sincerest apologies to my guest for the inconvenience caused.

About
Live, love, laugh and experience all the treasures that life has to offer! I am capable of turning up at a five star hotel in flipflops, a backpack and my yoga mat. Or stay in a simple hostel and feel at home. I can travel through Africa on a private safari, or spend weeks in India using only public transport. A plain bowl of super fresh greens will make my heart sing, but I also won't say no to an elaborate meal at a fancy restaurant. Give me a cheap massage on a beach, and I will be happy. Invite me to an elegant spa for a full-day treatment, and I will rejoice. In short: variety and human interaction is what make my life rich, never possessions. I love both simplicity and luxury, sometimes mixed randomly together. As long as they take me out there, into the world, to discover flavours, smells, colours - and, of course, new friends.
