SCROLL DOWN FOR THE LAST DESCRIPTION IN MY STYLE. AN UNFINISHED ATTEMPT TO DESCRIBE THE PLACE FOR THE RUSSIAN MISERY TRAVEL (C) CONCEPT IS HERE >> Located in the historic core of Moscow, little disturbed by modern efforts to turn the city into one giant shopping mall and office building. The neighbourhood that took its current shape in 1880’s is defined by 2-3 story human-scale buildings and is nearly encircled by a loop the Moskva river.. Small narrow pedestrian-friendly streets. Lots of cafes and restaurants. Several stores, including a 24 hour store. Of all the central touristy areas Zamoskvorechye is definitely the cheapest. One of the most valuable things about my apartment is its location. Here are a few random images of the immediate neighbourhood: Second, it lacks this “typical rental unit” style. I make a point of spending a few days there myself to make sure it does not get that impersonal feel renal properties acquire unless then are professionally maintained but that would be a different price bracket altogether. The apartment is set up like a home office, with unlimited high-speed internet and WiFi, a computer, a large quality monitor, a printer, a huge desk, and a comfortable chair. Ideal for two but will sleep 3-4 if necessary. The rate is $120/night, $700/week, $2000/month. A small but NON-REFUNDABLE deposit is required for a carved-in-stone reservation. Payment by cheque sent to London (Ontario, Canada), PayPal, bank transfer, or cash in Moscow. HOLES IN THE SCHEDULE ARE HARD TO FILL.
YOUR **NON-INSULTING** OFFER WILL BE ACCEPTED
Why so cheap? It is direct from me. No commissions. No redundant extras that add to the cost. And I keep the rate low enough to allow myself to be picky. Or even prejudiced. Let me try to express my prejudice in a non-offensive way. I will rent only to those who come from cultures with deep-rooted respect for property. If you have revolutionaries, bandits, commies, people who tend to aggregate into crowds and burst into embassies, or even football fans among your friends, relatives, or close ancestors you cannot rent from me. There is no margin build into the price to cover large phone bills or replace broken mirrors, and my housekeeper does not appreciate having to clean excrements, as was the case last time I let in one of these xxxxxxx barbarians, a descendant of narrow-eyed xxxxxx who rode their ugly little horses all the way to Breslau and Budapest where they finally got stopped by wet weather and heavily armored knights but instead of retreating back into Asian whence they came from they stayed in the Easter outskirts of Europe, raped Slav women, produced a generation of bastards, and finally formed that awful nation that is a menace to the civilized world and will, I’m afraid, bring it all to its ugly unglorious end. But this page is not here for me to share my view on how things came to be as disgusting as they are but to present my apartment in an appealing way. This paragraph that seems to have turned into a rant is merely to make a point that yes, I’m prejudiced – and earned the right to be that way – and I want decent respectable people only. And of mature age too please. Low price allows me tell undesirables off. View from the window: View onto the living room from the loft Air conditioning is a must in brutal Moscow summers. This, plus tights windows, will keep noise and dust out too. A loft is suitable for agile and sensible children. Please no drunks in the loft!
Bedroom with double bed
Vigilante babushkas roam the dark long halls of this old building that saw wars, revolutions, purges, decades of stagnation-era neglect, wild perestroika years, and has entered the 21st century under a threat of a wrecking ball awaiting it once one of the government/business/crime people decides to build yet another office or shopping center in its place. This area of Moscow deserves a separate story which I’ll have for you soon. For now I will only say that no other part of the city has so many cafes and restaurants packed so densely. A glutton’s dream. For the moment, while I don’t yet have a report from you, I will refer you to a Moscow News article on Zamoskvorechye. The story opens with a picture of a bridge that you see from the window and when you exit the building.. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy to email@example.com I usually respond right away. If AND ONLY the matter is urgent call me at +7 985 217 3241. What else? I may have failed to mentioned a full size washer/dryer and a backup hot water heater to keep you comfortable during an occasional hot water water outage.
