Mutual respect. Smoking is not allowed inside the house, yes you can on the terrace.
Please do not bring strangers to the house, ask me before and I will be happy to receive your friends and meet them, but I do not allow anyone to stay overnight.
To live in my house you have to love dogs, Amanda is very affectionate and is fond of all the people who have come so far. You will feel with her immediately from the family.
You can use the kitchen whenever you then clean everything you have used and replenish what you have consumed.
Enjoy your stay and treat our house as you would do with yours.

I loved my stay with Gabriela and her family! I lived with them during my semester as an exchange student. They helped me practice my Spanish and taught me many things about Spanish culture that I otherwise wouldn't have learned. Their apartment is nice and in a great location. It's on a peaceful street but also close to plenty of stores and two train stations which helped me get around town. I enjoyed talking with them in the evenings and hearing all the great stories they had to tell. They are great people, and I felt like another son in their family!
Gabriela is very friendly and kind.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Definitely going back to this place! Gabriela is very nice. The best homestay ever.
Séjour extrêmement agréable à tous les nivEaux. Gabriela vous accueille de suite comme si vous faisiez partie de la famille. A la fois discrète, mais présente et attentive à votre bien être. Beaucoup de chaleur humaine et un esprit ouvert. Discussions intéressantes et intérêt pour les autres cultures.
L'appartement est très agréable, calme et confortable. Situation idéale pour se rendre très rapidement en métro ou à pied dans les quartiers chers aux touristes tout en bénéficiant de la tranquillité après une grande journée de visites.
Bref, à recommander chaleureusement!
Gabriela est très chaleureuse et tout aussi discrète.
On se sent très vite en confiance et comme chez soi.
Bonne situation géographique.
Gabriela is a great host. She made me feel at home from the moment I arrived. Great accomodations/space, and very convenient location with lots of good restaurants within blocks.
Ha sido una experiencia muy buena, Gabriela tiene una familia muy especial. Ha sido un placer conversar con Gabriela y su hijo un chico muy inquieto y especial. La habitación es genial con mucha privacidad y baño propio.
Volvere pronto :)
Gabriela est très sympathique. Le logement est vaste, propre et on s'y sent bien. Je précise que je ne suis pas habituée aux chiens mais la cohabitation avec la chienne de la maison, Amanda, s'est très bien passée: elle est bien dressée et pas collante. Gabriela prépare des repas excellents et nous avons eu des échanges très enrichissants sur le pays, la culture, la gastronomie... On se sent comme à la maison, avec une famille présente, serviable, c'est vraiment ce que je recherchais. Je recommande cette adresse.
Viví a la casa de Gabriela durante 1 semana y fue un verdadero placer !! Ella nos cuida como una madre con buenas comidas, siempre disponible para ayudarnos !! Recomiendo realmente!!
