As my daughter has moved out, I'd like to offer her cozy room to somebody else, preferably an international exchange student or researcher.
The room is fully equipped and I am currently replacing most of the things she will take with her. So there will be a tv and most of the furniture you can see on the pictures. There is already an oriental carpet in the room right now and a massive wooden bed instead of the couch. If you contact me early enough, you can possibly make suggestions, what furniture you want to have in there.
I have another empty room, which is currently being renovated, as there'll be a second bathroom next to it. The bathroom is ready and we are trying to get the room ready for beginning of May or latest mid May. So, the plan is to rent out that one too from then on. That one would be also very suitable for a couple.
I'm living here with my boy-friend, who is from India and speaks Marathi, Hindi and English. We usually communicate in English. We are both very active members of an international hospitality exchange website and have travelers stay with us at least once a month, usually for a night or two. Our new flat-mate should be comfortable with this, but this is always negotiable. It would make things much easier, if our flat-mate could speak English with our guests sometimes, which is why I'm writing this in English, although I'm a German native speaker.
Our house is very close to all kinds of public transport, metro station U79 and 903, five minutes walk, central train station, fifteen minutes walk. The inner harbor is 300m away.
I have things like a washing machine, a dish washer, a micro wave, wireless LAN, a landline phone at your disposal. There's a garden, a balcony (also undergoing renovation these days) and a very cozy living room and kitchen area (have a look at the pictures), but just one bathroom for (up to three people staying permanently, once the other room is renovated). The house was completely renovated in 2000.
I consider myself a good cook and invite people over for dinner on a regular base. Also, I hosted some nice acoustic concerts with traveling international musicians in my house lately. It would be nice to share these things with a flat-mate who appreciates this. As a teacher, I spend a lot of my evenings silently working in my room though. So, there's not just party all the time.
Last year, I had two girls staying here, one from Mexico and one from Poland and what they appreciated, were three things: the food/cooking, the concerts and the fact, that I have almost everything, for example costumes for carnival that they didn't need to buy.
For food shopping, an Aldi and a Netto store are both around 400m away. A 24/7 gas-station is right next to the Netto market. One kiosk is even closer.
The inner harbor, with its restaurants and pubs (also for dancing on weekends), starts at around 200m from the house. The city center and the central train station are at 1.5km distance.
The subway station "Duissern" is about 600m from here. There you'll find the lines 903 and U79 and various buses.
The street leads almost nowhere. Only people, who really want to come here, drive through this part of the street. The house is in the last row of houses. Behind it, there are no more houses. The backside of the house is simply green. You hear some noise from the highway A59 and the cargo trains from Duisport though.
By car, you have to just go around the block, if you want to reach the highways A59, A40 or A3, and you can soon reach the A2, A42 or the A57 from here.
We do cook around five hot meals per week (so, sometimes we just warm up things from the fridge) and we rarely go out for a meal. We usually cook from fresh ingredients, and we appreciate it, when the people living with us join us for the meals and appreciate this, especially on rainy weekends.
As my boy-friend is a hindu, we don't eat beef. We do cook a lot of international food and a lot of Indian food too.
The living-room concerts play a major role in our social life. We clean up for them and try to present things nicely. We promote these events rather openly, so that anyone can bring one's friends. The traveling musicians come from all over the world and stay for a night or two. We try to have one concert in a month.
I am ready to help, but please, don't expect me to replace your mother (I know what I am talking about).
If you cannot prove that you have a valid liability insurance, I will ask you to pay 250 Euros more for the security deposit.
