Free parking on premisesThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

This is a beautiful self-contained house with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, 2 large terraces, wonderful view to the hills, and big well maintained garden. Parking possibility is in the garden even for several cars.
The house is located at Szentendre, next to Skanzen (the open-air ethnographical museum of Hungary) and 20 kilometres from Budapest.
Szentendre is a nice little town on the bank of river Danube and one of the well known settlements of the Danube-bend, a town that has been famous for its artists, craftsmen and art museums for centuries
The Danube Bend (Hungarian Dunakanyar) is a curve of the Danube in Hungary. It is often considered as one of the most beautiful segments of the river. Further well known cities of the Danube bend are Esztergom, Vác, Visegrád, where the sights of thousand years of Hungarian history can be found.
The house is in a peaceful and quiet place within reach to nature (forests, birds, a natural spring, etc.) and it is an ideal base from where to visit Budapest or the Danube Bend.
On idle days if you stay at Szentendre, in the garden of the house you can play badminton, volley-ball, ping pong (table tennis), or you can fly a kite. You also can walk in the forest, or in the downtown of Szentendre, where you can go shopping and enjoy the spirit of the Danube promenade and the artists and craftsmen of the city. Please keep in mind to do your shopping (including food and drinks) at downtown Szentendre, because in the neighbourhood of the house there are not any shops!
On sightseeing days you can visit Budapest where there are a great number of sights to see, Skanzen (open-air ethnographical museum) at Szentendre, Visegrád with its sights (Upper castle, Royal Palace) and entertainment places (thermal bath, summer bob, go-kart, alpine-rope adventure park), Vác, which is a wonderful, thousand years old town with historical monuments and architectonical masterpieces, Esztergom, which is a religious and cultural centre and has many sights, among them the Cathedral, the Christian Museum and Treasury, Maria Valeria bridge to Slovakia etc.
Taking part on a boat-trip along the Danube (up or down) integrates the beauties and atmosphere of the Danube- bend, and can be remembered forever.

The house has access to public transport. There is a bus stop, five minutes’ walk from the house. It takes 15 minutes to reach the centre of Szentendre by bus. From there you can get to the centre of Budapest by local train, which takes about 40-45 minutes. Buses run 10-12 times a day, the local train to Budapest runs 3-6 times an hour. As the bus is infrequent, our vacation house is much more convenient to travellers with a car.
Detailed description: This is a beautiful self-contained house on 3 floors. The distance from surrounding houses are 10-100 meters. You can use the ground and upper floors, and of course you can also use the ping-pong table in the basement. The living room, kitchen, and a big bathroom are on the ground floor. In the living room there are two sofas, a TV set, music centre, DVD player, a dining table serving up to12 people, and two cupboards. There is guitar in the living room too, you can use it. You have only the possibility of internet access, but you have to have a mobile subscription. In the entrance hall there are cupboards for your clothes. In the big bathroom there is a bath tub and a shower too. There are two toilets on the ground floor. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher machine, electric stove and oven, an espresso machine, microwave, tin-kettle, sandwich maker, toast maker and of course a fridge. Besides these you will find all the tools (vessels, cutlery etc.) and spices which can be necessary in a kitchen. On the upper floor is a mansard, and it has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The total number of beds are 9 (possibly 10) and we can rearrange the types of beds (adult, children) among the rooms if it is necessary, except the 2 double beds. Bed linen and towels are in the bedroom. Bathrooms on upper floor have only showers and do not have bath tubs. The washing machine is on the upper floor. The mansard has air conditioning and a small fridge too.
I ask you to keep in mind that I don't run a rental business. This is our family summer resort, we do not live there, and we use it rarely. The house is primarily inhabited by families and older couples. This is not a place where loud music or parties would be tolerated. I ask that you are respectful of our family house and what's in it, and that you leave everything in just as good condition as when you arrived. I would do the same for you, of course! Our personal things are stored in a separated room, and you'll find all the cupboards empty so you have plenty of room for your clothes.
In the house smoking is absolutely forbidden.
The cost of reasonable utility use (i.e. electricity, water) is included. However if you decide to run a big electric heater all week or leave the stove on for three days then we might have to discuss that. Because this is a summer vacation house, there is no central heating, therefore the ideal vacation period is May through September.
You will not be contacted or disturbed during your stay, with a few limited exceptions. Generally there are not any staffs within the house, but we take care of the garden. Therefore, sometimes, me, and /or the gardener will work in the garden, but we use only the basement and the garage gate on these occasions. Once a week I pay a visit to the house and these visits will be arranged with you in advance.
You'll have my contact details and you're welcome to contact me 24 hours a day if you have any questions or concerns. Me or my daughter will show you around and will perform a detailed inventory when you arrive and when you depart. During your stay in the house I will help you and because I live in Budapest I am able to get to the house in 40 minutes.

AMAZING! Everything was perfect. Our host could not have been better or more considerate. What a beautiful home and even better view. It was so nice to get away from the hustle of Budapest and really become a part of the country. We'll be here every time we come to Hungary.

On 14 of September on the highway close to Linz driving to Szentendre I heard at the radio that Austrian/Hungarian was blocked with several kilometers queue due to Hungary policy towards middle east refugees. Stopping at a gas station, the lady at payment shelter explained that…

Response from György:
Dear Philippe, I am sorry for the inconvenience that you encountered during your trip. I think there is a misunderstanding with regard to the payment that we should clarify. When I sent you the message „don't need any financial arrangement” I thought that since you do not arrive, your money would not be transferred. This is the first time this has happened to me, I did not have previous such experience. To be frank, I was a little surprised to see your money on my account. I am more than happy to transfer it back to you. I suggest that we get in touch with the Airbnb administration to arrange for the return of the payment (from my (Hidden by Airbnb) account to Airbnb and then they can give it back to you). Looking forward to your reply. Best regards, Gyorgy
