I will leave modesty out of this business and say that I am a welcoming host who will make you feel right at home from the first minute!
I can leave you in peace to take care of your own business and be independent in Bucharest, or I can recommend stuff to do/see, I can give you maps, go out with you and prepare a nice diner to eat together while chatting the night away. Your choice, most of the time :)
I designed my flat myself and I couldn't be happier with my choice. I feel safe and I marvel every day at the little details that came to me from the history of my family. I love my cat and I love tidiness and a clean home, so I have to invest quite a lot in professional cleaning, to keep all the cat hair out of the flat. I mostly succeed :)
Five things I can't live without? Books, books, books, books, books. You'll see what I mean when you visit :) I also enjoy good food (cooking and eating it). I have a recipe blog and I eat out quite a lot.
If you visit during the Enescu festival or even FOR the Enescu Festival, we'll probably go together to most of the concerts. I love opera, ballet and classical music.
My hosting style? It depends on my guest. I tend to be very motherly if I see a confused or unsure guest. However, I can also take a step back and let you experience Bucharest on your own if that's what you'd rather do. The rest is pretty much: mi casa e su casa and you can use the house phone to call me anytime you can't find the peeling knife or the kettle :)
PLEASE READ: After having rejected a lot of requests in the last couple of months from people who gave absolutely no info about themselves, I feel compelled to add the following:
Money is not the main reason I am on Airbnb (nor the second or third, for that matter), and I will only accept to host people that I feel I can connect with on some level. We have to share some interests, maybe we have traveled to the same countries and we can swap impressions, maybe you've been to a place I want to go and I would like you to tell me all about it, or maybe you are just so crazy and full of life, that I just have to meet you and try my best to befriend you in the short time of your stay.
But if you've just joined Airbnb and you have filled in no info about yourself, couldn't be bothered to upload a photo (of yourself, not of a Disney character!) and then send me a one line booking request, maybe not even using any Capital letters at the beginning of the phrase, or, worse, no punctuation at all... then expect me not to host you.
I host people in my flat, and therefore I have to base my decision to host on a certain amount of trust and mutual exchange of information. I think I've done my share by filling in my profile quite extensively for you. All I ask is that you do the same for me.
