The comment I get the most about the space is how bright and airy it feels. It is a third, top- floor apartment almost at the top of the hill. There are 5 sun-roofs spread around the apartment, including the bathroom; the windows are over 5 feet tall. There is also a lovely view of the city skyline from the living space and master room. This listing is for the private nicely decorated guest room. It has a full bed, basic desk and chair, lounge chair, dresser and decent closet space.
Accès des voyageurs

Échanges avec les voyageurs
I have a busy job and will not be present much during the day. When I am around, I am always happy to chat over a drink/meal and share ideas about what to do in the city.
The flat is up a relatively steep hill so get ready to work your gluteus. You get rewarded by a third floor walk-up after the hill. Needless to say, it is not so handicap friendly.
The fridge will be stocked with milk (regular or almond), yogurt, some sort of bread or pastry, some fruits and sometimes eggs. Help yourself to breakfast. If you fancy, you can also have freshly ground coffee and make yourself a french press or steep some tea.
There will be a T-card (unlimited pass) for public transport on the desk.
Be thoughtful and considerate! Be kind to the space and place things back in their place after use.
It is a shoe-free apartment; please use the shoe racks and freely borrow the in-door slippers if you need one.
Please ask before bringing visitors, and sorry I can only allow the number of guests on the reservation to stay overnight.
Please No smoking anywhere (even on the balcony) and No pets; I am allergic to both!
But most importantly feel at home :).
I am a relatively easy going. I am fortunate to have had a fairly cosmopolitan life; lived in different parts of the world.
I am a busy medical professional. However, I try not to be single-faceted or get consumed with my work. I enjoy a good brunch, having breakfast for dinner, coffee, biographies, creative fiction, urban gardening, running, Amazon Prime ... and a good night sleep.
Of course I enjoy traveling: solo, with friends, to resorts, and to anywhere my wallet and time allows.
