My apartment is decorated and kept with love and care. I love my guests to feel at home and to treat them with a basket of fruit or something similar when they arrive. They will also find some basic supplies in the kitchen (which I'd like them to replace before they leave). I request them to treat my home like their home. They can use the equipment available in the kitchen and the washing machine. Manuals explaining the use of appliances are in the kitchen. If you break something, please buy it-so your deposit won't be used.
I expect my guests to be mindful of the usage of water, gas, electricity, heating as they are very expensive. In the winter there is an extra charge of 5 euros/day for heating expenses.
In the kitchen, make sure to turn off the stove when you are done cooking and to put the heater in the off position when you leave the house.
Please make arrangements to arrive no later than 6pm. After business hours and week end reception may entail an extra charge.

Hello, my name is Nelly. I've lived in Genova, Italy until 20 years ago and then I moved to Los Altos, California in the San Francisco Bay Area. In Genova I owned one of the most traditional food specialty stores: Torte e Farinata Antica Sciamadda. In the US I have been teaching Italian cooking and culture for two decades and lead culinary tours in various Italian regions. My passion is to cook, preferably with others. So, if interested, I can teach guests a few things during their stay. Another passion is "home". I love to make guests feel at home and create a "home away from home" for them.
