Über dieses Inserat

A room with a queen bed and an extra mattress in the house or the whole house while the owner is away. Pay as you go wi-fi based on unreliable 3G network available at additional price . Airport pick up can be arranged for 15$.

Die Unterkunft

AIRPORT Taxi pickup at 15$ one way available and easiest way to get to the house.
IMPORTANT: please don't make bookings without contacting me first. Instant booking is not accepted. You need to have a photo and ID verified to have booking accepted.
For two guests, you have to send scanned ID of the 2nd guest also once the reservation has been accepted.

A house with a bedroom with a queen size bed (120x190cm) with a double layer IKEA duvet in a lovely house on the hill in the Shola area of Addis Ababa (behind British Embassy). An extra mattress is available if traveling with a friend.
Beautiful garden with a view of the city. The bathroom is shared with the owner, there is a living room and a fully equipped kitchen that you can use.
The veranda and the garden are perfect for relaxing. Lounging chairs are available. And if you are a bird watcher, you will love this place, we have white eyes, speckled mouse birds, chats, lovebirds, bulbuls etc.
There are three dogs in the compound but they are NOT allowed inside the house.

Free laundry services are available ONCE a week (except during severe water shortage periods), but due to cultural norms, the guest are required to wash their own underwear :-)
Bed sheets, towels and soap are provided.
In the rainy season (2nd half of June, July, August and 1st two weeks of September) it can take a while for clothes to dry, up to several days.

The house is off the main road, on a hill. About 5-10 minutes walk from the main road (faster on the way down the hill)
Local minibuses to Arat Kilo, Piassa, and the other way to Shola and Meganegna are available regularly. After 9 pm it is advisable to return with a contract taxi for safety reasons, especially if you are carrying valuables.

A reliable and reasonably priced contract taxi is available in the neighbourhood.
Airport pick ups can be arranged at extra cost of 15 dollars with a reliable local company (arrivals possible from 6am until 10pm - if your flight is arriving late at night I suggest you book a guest house room for the first night and arrange a pick up with them, I can advise you on reasonably priced guest houses in town ). Consult with me about check in time at least a day before arrival.
Random taxi from airport is also possible, but unless you have very good bargaining skills you'll pay at least 20 dollars and they will struggle to find the house.

Local shops are available at the bottom of the road and a house guard can be sent to do your basic shopping for you at no extra cost.

The neighbourhood is safe and friendly.

the owner is a seasoned Ethiopia traveler and can provide information about traveling around the country. Bradt and Lonely planet Ethiopia and Somaliland guidebooks are available (not the latest editions though). Guidebooks and other books can be borrowed from the house, but please return them for other guests.

Local food can be prepared if ordered in advance.

We can arrange an Ethiopian coffee ceremony in the garden for no extra cost (only on weekday and between 10am and 2 pm and only during dry season.)

I can help arranging local SIM card, if told well in advance.
Internet access with a wifi router is available, but at extra cost, as internet is very expensive in Addis. Charge cards are used, so you can pay as you go. Expect to pay at least 5 dollars a day, for basic e-mail and browsing use. Also, very important: I CANNOT guarantee internet will be working at all times as it is extremely unreliable.
There are hotels near by where you can browse the internet for free (or at a cost of a drink).

Zugang für Gäste

Kitchen has a gas stove. All pots and pans, cutlery, dishes, etc you may need. Fridge with a freezer compartment.
You can help yourself to food on your first morning, then please buy your own groceries. When leaving inform me of the things you're leaving behind in the kitchen or in the fridge.
You can use the whole house except my bedroom.
Bathroom is shared, so kindly clean up after yourself.

Schon im Vorweg gab Lisa viele gute Hinweise, so dass ich mich bereits bei der Ankunft sicher fühlte. Ihr ansprechendes Haus mit einem wunderschönen Garten spiegelt ihre offene und vertrauensbildende Art wieder. Das Zimmer ist einfach, aber mit allem, was ein Gast braucht ausgerüstet. Das Bett ist gut und die Decke wärmte hervorragend in den kühlen Nächten von Addis. Wer in einer aethiopschen Nachbarschaft (und nicht in einem überwiegend von Ausländern bewohnten Viertel) leben mag, ist bei ihr perfekt aufgehoben! Lisa war, trotz der herausfordernden Arbeit, die sie während meines Aufenthalts weiterhin bewältigen musste, immer hilfsbereit, freundlich und in jeder Hinsicht unterstützend. Durch ihre Kontakte zu verschiedenen Menschen konnte ich mich in einer für mich fremden Stadt problemlos bewegen, bekam jede Form von Hilfe und Unterstützung, und konnte trotz fehlender Amharischkenntnisse erste Eindrücke in eine interessante Kultur gewinnen. So setze ich jetzt ermutigt und gestärkt meine Weiterreise als ältere Alleinreisende in diesem Land fort. Aber ich freue mich auch auf ein hoffentliches Wiedersehen am Ende meines 1. Aufenthaltes mit ihr .LLiebe

Liza's place is a real germ in the busy city of Addis Ababa. The house is individually furnished, the garden just a paradise. The place recommendable for people, who know the country and know how to move in the city.

Liza's place is great. Peaceful, great location and enjoying morning coffee on her garden is priceless. Her book collection is also something else, she was great and provided all the information I needed. I highly, highly recommend her place, you will not regret it!

What a great place. A real oasis in a fabulous city. Liza was super helpful with travel advice and recommendations, even leaving us a phone to use. A thousand time better than any hotel with the added bonus of three lovely doggies to entertain us. Would recommend without hesitation.

Liza's place is cute and her staff were exceptional in helping me figure out things in the city. She did a great job helping arrange my arrival and was very responsive to my questions. Her dogs are sweet, but if you're sensitive to noise the dogs, hers and the neighborhood, do bark throughout the night.

Antwort von Liza:
Barking guard dogs and stray dogs are part of living in traditional Ethiopian neighbourhoods. I am truly sorry Tracey found them too loud, but I state clearly in the ad that there are dogs in the compound. My guests so far found that having the dogs in the compound to be a plus.

Liza's house is wonderful, The well organised arrival, the friendly house staff (Tadesse and Mimi) all add to the wonderful stay. This really is a home from home and to top it all off, the three dogs are so friendly that it is a real shame to leave. I will definitely book at Liza's again - the nicest place I have stayed in Ethiopia (by a long way) and I have stayed here a lot.
