Your private windowed room is in 60s style/Art Nouveau/Bungalo-Cottage, nestled in a private garden oasis in the sunset hills of Addis. 10 mins from the city center, sunset view, relaxed atmosphere. Built-in closets, cozy queen bed.
The house is full of windows that look out into a complex old wild gardenon both sides. There is a stairway path going from the entrance up to the front veranda of the house, with multi level tiered garden on both side. The back veranda of the house looks out upon a flat grassy area ideal for morning sports, drinking tea, or lounging around.
The house has a fireplace and firewood all ready to go if that's what you are in the mood for.
The room itself contains a queen-size bamboo bed, with a down comforter and extra blankets if needed. There are two built in closets, and an extra shelf. A window overlooking the garden opens for fresh air and the sound of the birds.
You will have your own room and can make use of the any of the other spaces in the house. The setup is kind of like a loft, it's a big open space which I have divided into sections, with a few cozy nooks and ther sitting areas. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything you might need, we have a blender, coffee grinder, cast-iron pan, lots of spices, etc. For short term guests, packaged drinking water, coffee and cooking oil are made available.
Washing machine is available for use.

Addis Ababa has some irregularities in the infrastructure, so at times electricity or water might go out. There is a 2000 liter tanker for this purpose. And a stash of candles on hand.
We are very flexible and can accommodate most people's schedules and times. Simple rules of courtesy are all that is required. For short term stays coffee, cooking oil, drinking water are always available.
I am a violinist living in Addis for 7 wondeful years. I first came from US with my Ethiopian band, based in Boston, called Debo Band, for a concert we were invited to play. I was struck immediately (as many people are) by the many unique aspects of Ethiopia, and subsequently would return many times until I eventually ended up living here full time.
My days are filled with teaching, rehearsals, writing music, or pther such activities, and once or twice a week I normally have a concert.
Around the house I enjoy cooking, doing yoga, lounging around, drinking coffee, and since my obligations usually start around 1pm until night, I cherish my mornings at home.
As a host, I aspire to be helpful, since things in Addis often need some explanation.
I am proficient in the local language and can help with translating or conveyig information
