Response from Virginia:
Thank you Muriel for the nice review. You are welcome anytime :-)
I would like to clarify that the apartment, which is a duplex, is on 2 floors and it's not a mezzanine or one big room. On the first floor there is the living room, the kitchen and a WC. On the second floor there is the bed room, a balcony and a bathroom (toilet+shower+sink).
When you are in the living room you can not see what's happening in the bed room and when you are in the bed room you can not see what's happening in the living room because one is on top of the other. The staircase is the connection between the two rooms and I give my guest a partition to hide their part of the stairs.
