J and I have been getting really good at finding unique accommodations through AirBnB's. We loved this one in Athens, and were so happy with our recent stay in Klaipeda. For tips on how to find your own awesome AirBnBs check out this post.
Now, I wasn't sure how staying in an AirBnB would work with Baby ISO, but J and I figured that we'd give it a try since we prefer staying in apartments over hotels. At this age (2.5 months) Baby ISO is still able to fit (barely) into his co-sleeper, so we brought that and a blanket for him along with us. Our co-sleeper actually packs really small, so we found it great for traveling with.
After doing a ton of research (and a quick chat with Concrete and Kitsch Blogger, Nick), we decided to book into the Jono Apartment, located right in the heart of Klaipeda Old Town. Despite being at the top of a three floor walk up, the Jono Apartment was a perfect place to stay - with or without a baby (J and I would have stayed here before Baby ISO). The decor of the Jono Apartment was awesome, functional, unique, and comfortable - everything we look for in an accommodation. Seriously, I love their yellow refrigerator and would love one someday! The hosts (we met Zeneta) were incredibly nice. Because they have stayed in the apartment before, it was well stocked with everything we could possibly need, yet was spotless. Also, there was a washing machine (they supplied detergent special for babies), which is really awesome when you have a small baby. In addition, the living room was well stocked with toys, a play mat, and they had a travel crib.
Did I mention that the hosts were awesome? Zeneta was there waiting for us when we arrived. Also, Zeneta was super helpful at check-out, she even carried Baby ISO so we could bring the rest of our luggage down to the car.
Speaking of the car, the Jono Apartment doesn't have a designated parking spot, but there is a ton of very cheap meter parking available right around the corner. I believe it was about 0.20 cents per 90 minutes and the meters did not run at night or on the weekends. Don't quote me on that price though!
*If your baby can walk or crawl you should know that there are very steep stairs separating the bedroom from the rest of the apartment. Keep that in mind when booking this apartment.
Have you stayed in an AirBnB with kids? Any suggestions for me?
