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.

We had a great stay at Marius' parents' place! His father is learning English with Duolingo and is easy and fun to talk to, sometimes with the aid of hand, feet and (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) translate. Both he and his wife are great cooks and we got spoiled with homemade jam and spreads, sausages from the local farmer/butcher and great wine. We'll definitely visit again when we go back to Romania!

The stay at the house of Marius' parents was one of the best experiences I had with airbnb. Nicolae, Marius father, gave us a nice welcome with some delicious cake he had made. He is a very warm and fun person, a little bit crazy but in the best way possible! He will help you out the best way he can and share his story with you. The whole family was really welcomming to us and we felt pretty much part of the family. We had a nice bbq, many tasty meals & palinka as well as interesting and fun conversations with them. The whole house was built by Nicolae himself and is very beautiful and cosy, with a nice garden next to a river. Everybody who makes a stop in Zarnesti should stay at this place. I hope we will come back one day! Thanks again for this awesome stay (:

Mariu's place is a small paradise right in the heart of Zarnesti very close to the Piatra Craiului mountain and the place had everything - A perfect home atmosphere - I feel lucky and obliged to meet Marius father - mother , they are two kind souls and what Love they bestowed on me - i don't think I can every repay it - A wonderful house - with beautiful people , an amazing family - all help you want and above all Marius helped me so much over the phone even he wasn't in town - I admire that. His father and brother gave me all info for Mountains as I made my morning hike and shared food with me and stories over smiles - I recommend this place for sure - If you look forward to meet people with amazing heart - then just on't think twice. Thanks Marius for having me at your place and please thank your Father - Mother for everything .

Marius's parents are amazing! They did everything they could to make us feel at home. We drank some palinka with them, and they even drove us into town when we wanted to go to a restaurant. Their house is right at the base of the nature park, so it's really easy to just take a walk into the mountains. We were really sorry that we couldn't stay for longer.
