Freelancers/work-at-home people! Do you want to rent a house with me over the summer?
Posted January 26th, 2013 - 9:57 pm by from Bucharest, Romania (Permalink)

I work from home, currently in Bucharest. I was thinking of renting a place over the summer (beginning of July - end of September) but I don't like the idea of apartments, it has to be a house; so I thought, who better to ask than fellow freelancers who want to get away for a while?

My preferences:
1. Location: Sibiu, Timișoara, Oradea- depending on what we find.
1.1 Location isn't set in stone: it can be somewhere outside of town, near the mountains. It could also be near the seaside.
2. A back yard or a garden
3. Thinking about the rest: probably wouldn't hurt to have a veg market, post office, and bank nearby (for me nearby includes walking or cycling 30 minutes to get there :)

While scouring the web for house rentals in Romania, I found some nice ones in the 500-700 EUR range. Example: http://www.imobiliare.ro/inchirieri-case-vile/timisoara/braytim/casa-de-inchiriat-5-camere-X045110CQ?lista=2395069. That one has 5 rooms, 3 bathrooms as you can see, and I'm not fussed about furniture. Another one in Cisnădioara (near Sibiu).

This is more of a preliminary/test post to see if anyone's interested. It's just an idea I had and nothing has to be decided right away. However, if you are interested, leave a comment, send a smoke signal, get in touch; we can make a subgroup and plan/stay in touch that way.

I mean, if enough of us get together, we could rent out a B&B! (Really.)

you could have a house for 3 months around my village for peanuts money, cheaper than a little studio rent.
