A cosy apartment for travellers who value comfort and convenience. Your big bedroom will be all yours, and I will be sharing the bathroom and the kitchen with you. In the bathroom, you will get some shelves and you are welcome to a bath with salts. You may use enjoy the comfort of a home, cook and use the appliances (incl. a high-speed blender, if you're into smoothies). And, in the evenings, when I'm home, I cook paleo (or vegetarian) meals, so, if you wish, we can even cook/eat together. :)
The room is spacious, bright, and with the sun shining into the window early in the morning. Later, it moves on to the kitchen balcony where it stays all day. If you wish to block all the light from the bedroom as you sleep, that is possible by rolling down the sun shutters.
There are only ten apartments in the entire building, so there are not too many people walking around, but you may hear an occasional neighbour walking down/up the stairs. The apartment itself is located on the second floor, with no elevator.
As the bedroom windows are facing the street, you will hear the cars if you open the window. With a closed window, it is not loud (it has never disturbed me in my sleep).
As this is my home, it is equipped with most items needed in a household (except for a hairdryer, microwave and maybe something else I haven't thought of) - you are most welcome to use what I have. This includes (mostly herbal) tea and coffee (also decaf), and, yes, I do have a coffee machine, including a milk frother - I recommend having a nice afternoon cappuccino while sitting on the sunny balcony. ;)
As I said, I will be sharing the kitchen and the bathroom with you, but I'm a very tidy person (and a non-smoker), so I hope that would not be of inconvenience to you. If you wish to smoke, you can do so on the balcony, I don't judge. ;)
Interaction with guests
I work part-time, so some days I'm home all day and others - only in the evening. In the evenings, I will be cooking myself a dinner and you are welcome to cook together with me and/or eat together as well. As I'm passionate about cooking and living healthily, I am happy to exchange ideas about that. I am also working with VR tech, so that's another fun topic you may end up learning about.
If you need any tips on getting around Basel/Switzerland, and any other info, I'm happy to advise and try to help where I can (I get that some things can be a bit confusing in Switzerland).
Other things to note
If you have any questions or special requests, just drop me a message. ;)
- Smoking only on the balcony
