Old traditional mud house with a big garden and a view in Yeka Subcity (north/eastern part of Addis close areas are Aware, Balderas, Kebena, Kazanchis) located in a fairly quiete neighborhood (as much as one can expect that in a major african city). If you are a "night bird" and seeking for nightlife and adventure you should better look for places around Bole.

The space
The house is situated in a safe and friendly neighborhood close to the British, Belgium, Kenian, Russian, Italian and German Embassy. The house and compound are fairly big, with an old mud house, a service quarter and lovely gardens and lots of parking space in the courtyard yard. The condition of the old house is good, yet in some places there is need of renovation like almost everywhere here in Ethiopia ;0)
I got two guest rooms to offer. One (the yellow one) is small but cosy and pretty bright. Through the window you have a nice look on a small private terrace/garden. The bed and mattress is new and comfortable (120cm x 190cm). The room includes small bedside tables, nice bedside lamps, a big shelf for personal belongings and coat hangers. You have your own private tiny, little bathroom.
The second room (the blue one) is, to tell the truth, a little dark. It has only a small window like a sutterain room of the olden days but it offers plenty of space for two people with a queen size bed (150cmx190cm), a big cupboard where you can keep all your things including your suitcases, a writing table and an easy chair. You have direct access to the private terrace (not during rainy season though) in the back of the house which is a real highlight in the evenings to relax from the bustle of town. You have your own private tiny, little bathroom.
Both rooms can be locked.

Where you’ll be

አዲስ አበባ, Ethiopia

As I mentioned earlier, the area is quite safe and people are generally friendly. The neighbors know each other and are vigilant. There are mostly Ethiopian families living here and almost everyone makes an effort to beautify the houses and streets with flowers and plants. The only drawback I can think of is the fact that there are some churches close by. Please don't get me wrong, I don't have a problem with the churches only with the noise they sometimes make. It is just that church services in Ethiopia are not a quiet private affair. Apart from that, it is very quiet, especially at night.
In the immediate neighborhood you can find small souks or kiosks where you can buy everything for your daily needs.
A nice café and two good restaurants are within walking distance. Other restaurants, a French Bistro with delicious bread and croissants, a stylish boutique, a spa with fitness center and the local market Shola (the little sister of the big Mercato) are also nearby.

During your stay

I will be working most of the time but I am available if you need advice or you face any problems. May be it is good to know that I am an early bird which means I get up at around 6am. If you like to sleep in, no problem. But sure you will hear me and the pets getting ready for the day. I can provide earplugs though...
