Dog-friendly, stylish countryside guesthouse in Balatonkiliti, outskirts of Siófok.
The end of a long journey....
How did the story of our house started and how did I become a countryside guesthouse owner from being a city girl from Budapest?
It all started in the summer of 2017.
I could not find my place and during the weekends, we went on roadtrips, mostly in Hungary with our dogs. One weekend we ended up in Polany, among the hills of Somogy and met a Belgian couple. We became friends and helped them to run their houses for a year.
In the beginning of 2019, due to the health issues of my Mother, we decided to move together. First we looked for houses near Budapest but then we quickly realised that standing in a traffic jam for an hour is no better than driving an hour on the highway. So our second trip lead us to Balatonkiliti.
We picked up the keys for our house in Balatonkiliti in June, 2019. Since then the renovation is ongoing and we had our first guests in May, 2020.
About us. At the moment, the 3 of us and our 4 years old girl chow chow, Blue and our 7 years old boy chow chow, Ari are living in the main part of our house. I am a relocation professional while Adam works in IT. My Mom is also living with us and she is a pensioner.
Next to the main house, the smaller house is the base of the Nook – Balatonkiliti project.
The house is a separate ~70m2 building with 2 floors and a nook alike rooftop bedroom, hence the name of the house.
We opened in May 2020 and looking forward to seeing you with or without your family and 4legged friends
