easy-going, life-loving, happily sharing person
Janika is the most amazing host I have ever had. She took total care of me while I was at her place. She is generous and intuitive, anticipating my needs (even ones I didn't know I would have!) and taking care of them all. She checked in with me frequently, helped me get settled and figure out how to get around, and even went to heroic lengths to help me arrange a last minute trip out of town. She's also great company: she brought me along to the grocery store and the pool; we shared meals and stories. She is considerate, a good communicator, and a great person to share a conversation with!
Janika's place is also gorgeous. Set atop one of Port-au-Prince's several hills, it has an amazing view. It was hard to tear myself away from the hammock on the balcony every morning to go to work. Janika's flat and her guest room are cozy and comfortable. I felt at home and at ease and had everything I needed.
Long story short, I could have had a lonely, boring, and stressful work trip to Haiti, a place I'd never been and where I didn't speak any of the languages common locally, but instead I had a wonderful, comfortable, low stress, idyllic stay. I can't list all the little things that Janika did for me while I was there b/c it would take too much space and because I wouldn't want her to feel obligated to provide a toothbrush for every single visitor she has that forgets it!! But suffice it to say that Janika is truly an amazing host and her place is as amazing as it looks...
Trotz kleiner anfänglicher Schwierigkeiten kümmerte sich Nika fabelhaft und zeitnah um alles; und dass, obwohl sie mehrere tausend Kilometer von Hamburg entfernt ist. Sie war stets um unser WOhl bemüht und kümmerte sich vorbildlich um unsere Anliegen.
Gerne immer wieder - WOhnung liegt fussläufig zur Reeperbahn (6 Min.) und von dort ist der Jungfernstieg wie auch die Landungsbrücken und die Speicherstadt binnen kurzer Zeit mit der Bahn erreichbar.
Auch erstaunt im positiven Sinn waren wir von der ruhigen und dennoch super zentralen Lage - leider war das Wetter frostigkalt im Hamburger Winter, aber die Wohnung gemütlich warm beheizt.
All in all: Daumen hoch!!!!! :-)
Very good in every way, roomy enough for 4 people (1 child), well-equipped kitchen. Quiet street but easy walking distance to sites of interest and public transport. Great for kids, many playgrounds nearby.
Wir waren sehr zufrieden und haben uns wohl gefühlt und vor allem die sehr ruhige Lage mitten in der Großstadt genossen!
Spitzen Lage, super schön und gemütlich.
Sehr nette und unkomplizierte Betreuung.
Wir haben uns ganz wunderbar willkommen gefühlt und alles war unkompliziert so wie besprochen, angekündigt und erwartet.
Sehr gerne und immer wieder!
Nika: du bist eine tolle Gastgeberin
Haben uns immer sehr gefreut, bei dem rauhen Wetter in die gemütliche Wohnung heimzukehren.
Stimmungsvolles Kerzenlicht oder Hängematte im Garten - man fühlt sich wie im Urlaub ... und doch schon fast wie zuhause. Sehr fein !
Sehr gemütlich und geräumig, ruhig gelegen mit nettem Gärtchen im Hinterhof! Trotzdem zentral, wenn man halbwegs gut zu Fuß ist bzw. mit Rad unterwegs. Prima Michschäumer und ein schönes altes Klavier zum Spielen!
If you like staying in foreign country feeling something more than just visiting hotels and museums, you have to stay in this appartement. It's vey cozy furnitured and decorated. It has distinct character and you won't become a tourist living here, but will become a part of Hamburg.
The appartement has separated bedroom and living room with unbelievably lovely small back-yard to drink coffe or just read on a bench.
The kitchen is totally equipped to make you independent from any cafes and restaurants.
The district is rather new and perfectly quiet.
And a good trick for sociopaths! You won't even have to meet the host. She lives on a small green island in the ocean! %) Just take the key there and then leave it there.
We were three of us sharing the appartment, which is quite small, but has everything - a comparatively big kitchen (sits 3 for breakfast) and equally big bathroom.. We are old friends and know each other well, so there were no problems in being so close to one another. Mere acquaintances may find it more difficult. We liked it and were surprised, how extremely quiet it was. We agree that is is worth recommending!
Nika is my dream-come-true guest. Traveling alone from Europe to Haiti, she's super self-sufficient, super independent, and super great! In spite of coming down with a cold while here, she was completely undemanding and great fun to talk to. Very easy-going and totally understanding of our farm-like atmosphere. I can't wait for her next trip through Miami!
Janika ist nicht nur als Gast, sondern als Mensch sehr "zu empfehlen" :) ich hätte sie gerne viel länger bei mir gehabt und hoffe stark, dass sie bald wieder kommt!!
Nika was the best AirBnB guest I've ever had! She was so sweet and lovely, super friendly and polite, and with such wonderful stories about her travels and her own AirBnB experiences as a host and guest. I was unwell for much of the time she visited and she ended up being the one looking after me rather than the other way around, leaving me caring notes every day, offering to cook food for me and doing the dishes every night - in general, really going "above and beyond" for me - it was so much appreciated. I could not have asked for a better guest who really made herself at home in the best possible way! It was like having a loving sister come to visit. I miss having Nika staying here already, and do hope that she will return to stay next time she visits Geneva.
