Clean and spacious, you have almost an entire floor for you with bathroom, kitchen and living room. But if you come to this house it's not for its material comforts but for this very welcoming family that will treat you as one of their own.

It's a quite big appartment with two rooms in a quite quartier and it has a beautiful garden where you can chill at night. But you have to watch out for the adress, because it is not exactly as shown on the map, but you can contact Dori and she will answer immediately! Suma sumarum it is a very good place to stay!

Dori and her family were great to us! We arrived late and they where patiently waiting for us. They were great hosts, we even got coffee and cake in the morning and they offered us local tips on where to eat and what to see. The room was spacious, we got an entire apartment. And the bed was really comfortable, we slept excellent! Highly recommended, do visit Kukes and stay at Dori's family.

Our stay with the Shahajs was a highlight of our time in Albania. What a wonderful family. Every one of them was so generous and welcoming, looking each day for ways to show us another side of life here. From meals to picnics to coffees to broom hockey to Albanian lessons (trust me: there are no better teachers than an almost-7- & an 11-year-old), we absolutely loved everything we did here, and can't wait to return. Don't miss out on the chance to stay with this lovely family!

This was just an incredible experience - it's hard to find words for how great staying with Dori's family was. If you are going anywhere near Kukes (we were looking for places in Prizren when the listing popped up), I HIGHLY recommend stopping in this scenic town and basking in the hospitality that Sofi and Fadmir provide. The room was quite comfortable, but it was really the people that made this trip special. Dori's parents, sister Mira (who is fluent in english), niece, aunt and cousins (also english speakers) went out of their way to make us feel welcome, and like a part of the family. We even got great Albanian lessons from the kids. Super cutie-cutie!! Until next time!

If you happen to come through Kukës, you shouldn't miss the opportunity to meet Dori's family. Very kind and welcoming people, and thanks to their hospitality, Kukës will remain in our memories as a special place indeed.

My name is Dorina and I am from Albania. I have been live in England for over 10 years now however my family are still living in Kukes - Albania. My parents don't speak very good English but they try their best. I host for my parents in Albania and I also use Airbnb for my travels... as I believe this is a grate way to meat the local people.
