About the Homestay
I live by myself in Itaewon and work as a teacher in a nearby area. My flat is actually inside a hotel (GV-Residence), only that I have the only privately rented apartment in there.
I have the Premier Deluxe Suite. There's two floors: living room, kitchen, my bed and bathroom on floor one and on the second floor there is your bedroom and bathroom with a double bed and a normal bed (connected to one giant bed).
There's also a beautiful rooftop with a stunning view over Itaewon.
I'm a Philosophy teacher.
I like meeting new people and welcoming people from all around the world at my place.

About the Area
My apartment is located very close to the main street of Itaewon. From here there is easy access to the metro, two bus stops as well as a direct bus transfer to Incheon airport. There are dozens of restaurants nearby and on Fridays and Saturdays the streets are crowded with people going to pubs and clubs in the area. During the week everything is rather normal though. Busy Itaewon is close but it's still quiet enough to only hear the street a tiny bit. It's a great starting point for any discovery of Seoul as the temples are north and easily reached by bus whereas Gangnam or Lotte Tower for example are rather to the south and east.

Eric made our stay relaxed and hassle free. We had our own space but could chat with Eric if we needed too. We felt extremely welcome and the location was perfect for us. The rooftop access was a definite positive too.
We felt at home immediately. Eric is a delightful man, and we had the feeling we were visiting a friend. We had the top floor completely to ourselves, with large, comfortable bed, wash basin, loo and shower; and also had access to the roof terrace, with great views over the city and surrounding hills. The address is central, close to local food markets and general shops, and very convenient for bus or underground connections. We heartily recommend this stay to anyone who enjoys genuine, personal contact with their host.
Eric is a great host !!! the welcome was very warm. I was welcomed as a friend. the apartment is super well placed, a very spacious room with private bathroom. and a perfect terrace on the roofs of itawon. he was able to make him discover Seoul and help me to take the first steps in the city. I can only recommend Eric to any traveler on Seoul. thank you very much and see you soon!
Éric est un hote super!!! l'accueil a été très chaleureux. j'ai été accueillis comme une amie. l'appartement est super bien placé, une chambre très spacieuse avec salle de bain privé. et une terrasse parfaite sur les toits de itawon. il a pu le faire découvrir Séoul et m'aider a faire les premiers pas dans la ville. je ne peux que recommander Éric à tout voyageur passant sur Séoul. merci beaucoup et à très vite !!!
We stayed 2 weeks in the lovely Eric's apartment, with a bathroom and an individual toilet. The apartment was very clean and occupied the entire 1st floor. We had 1 large bed very comfortable. There was 1 bed for 1 person available. As a bonus, we had Eric's roof top, which must be one of the most beautiful in Seoul... It was amazing !! In addition, the apartment is ideally located, 5 minutes from the metro, close to a lively area. Eric is very nice and discreet. He is available if you need information. If we have to go back to Seoul, it is without hesitation that we will go back to Eric's house. Thank you Eric
