Hi there! I'm a tech entrepreneur from Amsterdam that loves to travel, meet new people and get a taste of a country's culture. Currently making a more permanent move to California...

Alexander was fun to chat with and a great guest. We'd gladly host him again.
Was great to rent my studio to Alex. He took care of the place, and left everything in perfect conditions and very clean. Our communication was also good. Would be my pleasure to host him again in the future.
Alexander and Inge (along with several other guests) were polite. They were here for a start-up event for their new company involved in the travel industry. They left the bedrooms clean and the beds made with the exception of additionally used linens for the airbed (which they politely piled in the entry way for me). Inge was lovely and beautiful.
Being from the Netherlands, however, I am not sure the group really took my "no smoking within 15 feet of the building" seriously, which was unfortunate for us both since I do withhold a minimum of $250 for smoking in my unit, which is standard here in California and in many parts of the US. This rule is not only for my unit but for the entire building. I personally had an incident last year with a neighbor who smoked leaning outside her window and the smoke blew up into my window making me nauseous. In San Francisco, the climate is such that we enjoy fresh air without the need for air conditioning.
Smoking inside or out the window is not allowed. The odor remains in the unit, even if a smoker leans out the window as the smoke blows back into the room. I am grateful I did not have a guest coming the next day as it takes several days and much work to deodorize the space and rugs and furniture must get steam cleaned.
I would host them again, with the agreement that there is no smoking in my space under any circumstances. We do have a beautiful roof deck with 360 degree panoramic views of the city where guests can smoke (outside, of course).
Alexander his employee, Pietro, was a great guy and very clean and proper. Always welcome to stay with us again!
