This is our last month as hosts and as we transition to our new home we are offering our rooms at a discounted rate, pick-up only on weekends or after 6pm, we will not be present in the house on most nights. Some ammenities not available.
Please read all of the information about our neighborhood and location before booking with us, and don’t hesitate to e-mail us with any questions.
As the colder months are upon us, outdoor amenities will be less available.
Stay with us and we will help you arrange your trips to all the major tourist attractions, with detailed information on the different attractions, and your options for visiting them. Just ask, and we will be your personal TI, with compiled information on destinations such as Auschwitz, Wieliczka Salt Mines, Wawel Castle, the Old Town, and both Kazimierz and Podgorze that you can't find anywhere else!
Our home offers the best of both worlds.... you can experience "real" life in Poland away from the tourist crowds, where we offer to you a private room in our 200 square meter home, in one of the best residential neighborhoods, complete with large patio, free bikes, guest balconies, badminton and volleyball field, fire-pit, and lounge chairs, nc+ cable and flatscreen TV, fully equipped kitchen, two large bathrooms, laundry room, playroom with computer station and ping-pong.
Come relax in between your busy days touring the city, and be in a peaceful, safe, and quiet neighborhood, with parks, complete with exercise equipment, and bike trails all around. We provide every supply you might need for an afternoon picnic in the city or park, and would be happy to set up a fire-pit for you any time, just ask! We can also answer any questions you might have about local life in Krakow, from both a local and ex-pat point of view, and give any suggestions (which we will also e-mail to you in the form of a 20 page guidebook we have put together ourselves.)

We want you to be as comfortable as possible while visiting Krakow. Please feel free to email us any questions. And know that we want our visitors to experience the real Krakow, so we invite you to ask us any questions about what living here is really like, or about our culture/traditions here in Poland.
[We have another mattress that can be added to the room if there are 3 people booking, or if you would like to sleep in separate beds. Just please give us notice of this so we can rearrange the room accordingly. And if you would prefer the matress to be placed on the floor instead of on the sofa-bed frame, we can place it there for you as well, just let us know your preferences in advance!]
Our home is in one of the best residential neighborhoods surrounding Krakow, with nearby parks, bike trails, picnic areas, rolling hills of the Polish countryside, and beautiful sunsets. Take the tourist route bike trail from our neighborhood to the Ojcow National Park, where you can spend the day picnicing, hiking, visiting a castle and "church over the water". Near our home you will find some cute local restaurants and pizzerias just a 20 minute walk away, or even quicker by bicycle. (Ask us to show you the shortcut to the park and its even faster).
Krakow holds claim to being one of the worst cities in the world when it comes to air-quality and pollution due to its location in a valley; however, our home is at a much higher elevation than the city, giving us much cleaner air!
