I am an avid traveller with two decades of globe trotting under my belt. I used to only stay in hotels or hostels. However, 2010 I decided to try staying in a private residence. It was a great experience, I loved it an have never looked back. I found that the convenience, comfort and privacy of staying in an apartment trumps the sterile transactional experience of a hotel. Furthermore, I think I can make myself a better, less expensive breakfast than any hotel can offer, and enjoy it in my PJ's!
