Warm house with warmer people, so close to Piatra Craiului Mountain you could hear it gently breathing at night if it wasn't for the steady rumble of the river hugging the backyard. The views are splendid, the people heartwarming, the nights are silent and the sense of adventure fills every traveler's heart just shy of passing the last house in any direction.

The space

We are located right at the base of Piatra Craiului Mountain and National Park (30' walking distance from the main hiking path ). You can easily start a trip from my house up the mountain. Let's call it Base Camp Piatra Craiului.
Our house is well lit, modern, with a dash of traditionally oriented rooms, with large and open hallways, always clean and always quiet. My parents love having kids in the house and are the warmest, hardworking people me, and my friends who stayed here, have known.

Guest access

You have full access to the house, except for other rented rooms and my parents' bedroom. This includes the living, dinning, kitchen, bathroom, hallways, front and backyard. You can freely use all of the kitchen appliances (fridge, dish washer etc.), big screen TV in the living and help yourselves to a barbecue in the backyard.

Interaction with guests

Between me and my brother you can fluently communicate in English, Romanian, Italian(brother and mother) and somewhat sketchy Deutsch. My father is almost constantly home and although my parents' English is not that good, he will help you by any means. If you speak Romanian, he can be an excellent tour guide through the Ravines and a very helpful mountain trekking advisor.
Although I may be away, we can constantly communicate via this Airbnb platform and I can pass your wishes and requests to my parents. Also, my brother can be of help in the evenings when he gets home.
We can offer tips for your visit, places to go biking, hiking, climbing.

Other things to note

The bathroom for this room is downstairs from the room and may be shared with the room across the hallway (if it is also rented out, at the same time).
Our home is tidy and cozy, we expect only that our visitors behave with the same decency as they would want their guests to behave.

The location is in a small town, close to the mountains and 10 km from Bran. We used this central location as home base to visit all the Transylvanian attractions. It worked perfectly. The room was quite all right without AC. Nice breeze. The hosts (parents) are the nicest people you will ever meet. These are people who airbnb because they enjoy meeting people and being the best hosts. There was a language barrier m, but nothing (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) translate couldn't handle, sometimes quite comically. My main communications were with the son Marius who speaks English and was very nice and helpful. Our room was comfortable and the bathroom on the floor below wasn't a problem. There are a lot of puppies in the adjoining houses that serve as roosters in the morning, but again, not a huge problem. :-) If I were to return, I would visit them again, no doubts. Friendly, helpful and interesting hosts.

Absolutely superb. Marius's place and especially his family is the perfect place to stay if you're looking for a familiar, personal, more local experience. We got much more than just a place to spend the night, we've got a real taste of that romanian hospitality these places are famous for. Thank you and we'll definitely like to meet again when back to Zarnesti.
