What is it you look for in a place?

If you’re like me, you want a place that is quite but also not at the end of the f****** world. You’re probably looking for a place that exudes warmth but is still cool enough to have your friends come over.

Well, I have recently found such a place in maadi, one of the coolest and most beautiful districts in Cairo, and I plan to move in starting the 1st of April. The only catch is I’m looking for two roommates to come join me. So, if you find your interest piqued, read on my weary traveller.


About the place:

The best way I can describe the place is homey: When I first saw it, it felt like it was the kind of place I’d be happy to come back to after a long day’s work. For starters, it gets plenty of sun, and when you mix that with the dark hardwood floors covering the place and the naturalistic furniture adorning it, the place becomes very cheery yet serene during the day. It also doesn’t hurt that most of the windows are overlooking beautiful gardens, and, next to the apartment, there is a gorgeous little garden nestled in the bossom of maadi that you can go hang out in at any time.

On the other hand, seeing as it is situated in road 10, which runs parallel to road 9, the apartment occupies an exquisite location next to any and all shops you may need, including bars, restaurants, and just plain grocers. The metro is also less than a minute away. That being said, road 10 itself is a very quiet street, which means that even though you will be a minute away from bustling life, the apartment itself will always be calm and quite.

The apartment consists of 3 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and two shared living spaces, one of which has an actual working fireplace, something that’ll only add to the coziness of the place in the winter.

The monthly rent will amount to 12,000 EGP, which when divided by 3 means that each room will pay 4,000. Additionally, the bawab fees as well as the monthly maintenance all come around to 400 EGP in total.


About me:

Having lived with fantastic roommates as well as with horrible ones, this is what I’ve learned (think of it as my manifesto whenever I move into a place):

1. Privacy is king. Without privacy, people can’t feel comfortable in a place. After all, we all need a place where we can be alone with our thoughts, a place where we can just be ourselves without any reservations. And, if that place isn’t your home, then where will it be?

2. When it comes to roommates, it’s important to remember that you all share the space and no one person owns it. In other words, if you want to do something that might disturb the person in the next room, ask first. And, they have just as much a right as you do to express themselves in that space.

3. On the other hand, living with others is always more pleasant than going at it solo. So, relish the experience and grab a drink with your roomies when you can. Hell, throw a party with them once in a while; you won’t regret it.

And, that’s about it.


About you:

People looking for a long-term deal are preferred. Other than that, you’re good to go.
