I was picked up from the airport by Cathy's father for 60 USD, which saved me at least an hour of time. He is a caring and accommodating person, tried every hard to get the house liveable for me. However the musty smell of my room was too strong for me. He was nice enough to share his own room with me for a night.
The guest house is furnished very nicely, but:
-In order to go to the bathroom, the guests have to go outside and into the front door of the host's house.
-The bath water was either hot or cold, no warm. It was the only way, I was told.
-bathroom will be flooded after shower due to leveling of the floor.
-contrary to the description on Airbn, there's actually no Wi-Fi.
I only stayed 1 of my 7days. Tried to cancel some of the days, but...
Very friendly and welcoming family. The room is cozy with a big bed. Neighbourhood is very nice and close to the train stop. Cathy is a great host.
I am really appreciated to accommodate me ! by your father !
he was kind and friendlt, his friend as well. they catered fresh bread and all hand made food !
if i have a opportunity to go there again, i will not hesitate to contact to you ! Thanks for all !
We stayed with Viorel and Rodica (Cathy's family) on their farm near Bucharest for one amazing night. This was the starting point of our road-trip and we were looking for something that was a short drive from the airport that would give us a Romanian experience.
We arrived later than expected after being stuck in a traffic jam leaving the airport. When we arrived, our hosts served us a home-made dinner with all ingredients being from their farm. After learning that my wife is gluten intolerant, Rodica made a second batch just for her.
After dinner, we sat down and chatted with our hosts for a couple of hours before retiring. Their english is decent but I took the opportunity to practice my Spanish after learning they had lived in Spain for years.
The next morning, they had coffee and breakfast (again, as locally grown as it gets) waiting on us. Aftewards, Viorel helped us plot our journey north to our next destination.
This is an example of why we use Airbnb instead of hotels. You get the family experience that you won't ever forget. Highly recommended.
---- Please note that mapping software such as (website hidden) Maps (and Airbnb's service) have a lot of difficulties with Romania. The farm is about 40-50 km northwest of Bucharest, NOT south. Before flying in, we wrote Cathy (who was very responsive) to help us find the exact location of the farm.
Thank you for coming! Mum & Dad were happy to spend time with you, even though it was quite short! You are always welcome to visit us again! We hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip and found good places to stay!

Cathy and her family are the best hosters I've ever had!
Every morning we had a culture exchange, playing with kids, have a great time! Unfortunately, we had not so much time to spend time together, We will keep in touch and will fix this it the next year.
Her flat is very clean, well equipped, modern and located in a two steps to train and bus stations. There is a sauna!!!
You are so kind! Thank you for coming! We learnt so many things from you as well and decided to visit Belarus one day!
It is my second time in Finland. This time I was lucky to experience living with a friendly and welcoming family. I really felt like I am one of them with full freedom in their comfortable and clean home. I had the chance of nice chats from time to time and sometimes company to some places.
I would like to thank and recommend them.
We were glad to have you among us...and we hope to meet again! Good luck for the school!
Cathy is an amazing person and her hospitality rocks. We were 2 people and the pull out sofa which was offered to us may be good if only one person sleeps on that but for 2 people hmm...
We will surely like to visit her again.
you are right John...that is why we decided to change it soon after you left! Thanks for the honest reply! Keep in touch!
Caty & family are wonderful and very rare, precious reliable, friendly & helpful and closepositive people. Her place is very well situated in a peaceful area and close to shops, cafe, transportations.
