Lovely home - so comfortable!
We stayed in Sinaia for two nights, and this home was exactly what we needed after being in Istanbul. So quiet, relaxing, and beautiful. We cooked at home one night, and the kitchen has most everything you need (a larger skillet would be nice :) ) Lots of spices already there so you don't need to purchase. The beds were very comfortable. Marius (the host) was very easy to communicate with, and very thoughtful. We would definitely book again!
Gorgeous! One of my favorite places in the world!
My husband says that this absolutely beautiful villa (inside and outside) looks like something out of a design magazine, but I would say it looks like something out of a fairy tale! We loved staying here! All the rooms are comfortable and wonderfully decorated, and the grounds are lovely, with lots of trees, and little seating areas here and there. The house is extremely well-equipped with all kinds of modern amenities.
The views from the second floor balcony are amazing, as is the area. The place is located a few houses away from the George Enescu house, and the entire area is fabulous. We drove around the area because my husband has a bad knee, but you could spend hours walking around outside and be delighted by all the interesting houses and breath-taking scenery.
Quite sincerely, I don't think I have ever stayed anywhere on a vacation that I enjoyed as much as this place.
An incredibly beautiful homey villa!
I was planning a family holiday with my kids, my parents and my in-laws (....) and it was down to me to organize everything. It was of a top priority for me to find a homey place as it was obvious that we will spend a fair amount of time at the villa. The photos on the website of Poem Boem looked beautiful and very much my taste in terms of decoration etc. I started corresponding with Marius with various enquiries and he was incredibly helpful and kind. When we arrived at the villa we discovered the most beautiful, warm and comfortable home. It ecceeded our expectation by far!! The photos on the site don't do much justice to it as the villa in reality looks a million times better. We had the most wonderful holiday and much of it was because it was so much fun to just hang around the villa for hours on end, drink coffee in the garden, watch films, do a BBQ, play board games and relax. The beds were so comfortable and generally the villa was equipped in such a thoughtful way that it had everything we needed. Before our arrival we were a little concerned about the proximity to the railway as my husband is a very light sleeper but it really wasn't a problem at all because the trains' noise just blends in and we stopped noticing it after one day. Marius has been extremely kind and attentive and attended immediately to every single thing we asked. Well - all in all we loved the villa immensely and would love to come back at some point.
A Poem Indeed
A large older home being restored by the owners. An antique feel with modern appliances and accoutrements. Three BRs and 3 baths all with hand-held showers and a separate 1BR lower-level apartment provides room for a large group. Typical for Europe, the kitchen is compact, well supplied and fully equipped. Oil, spices, tea, coffee are all on hand. On a rural street 2 km from Centro, it is quiet and spacious with good WiFi, great tv with a selection of movies and tons of music for the superb stereo. Nicely decorated in a traditional style.
The house was clean, warm and welcoming. The owners, Marius and Ioana, were responsive, kind and extremely accommodating.
Washer in basement with a drying rack made light travelling easy. A beautiful sauna was a big bonus. Fireplace, but we didn't use it. Online photos and descriptions are accurate. Food in the nearby restaurant was inexpensive and of adequate quality for the price.
The house is on the same street as the river and the railway bed so the regular passing trains are great if you're a railway buff. The sound was noticeable but not a problem. Stray dogs are plentiful in Romania and their night-time barking might annoy light sleepers but no more than busy city noise.
The local monastery and the Peles Castle are wonderful sites and well worth a day to visit. And the gondola trip to the top of the mountain is an interesting side trip.
All in all, Villa Poem Boem was a wonderful experience and we’d highly recommend it.
Transport yourself to another place and time........
The owners had warned us, "remember to leave the house". We understood what they said when we arrived at this beautiful villa. Cleanliness, amenities and location were amazing. Make this your stay when exploring this beautiful region of Romania.
Villa Extraordinaire - Poem Boem
Villa Poem Boem, Sinaia, where we stayed in September, was built in the 1930's by its architect for his bride and has been restored and updated by its present owners deftly preserving its romantic origins. In fact, the owners graciously met us there with the key and gave us a tour of the four floors of living space. The building is set against a hillside of conifers and stone staircases giving a vantage to starry nights. We found the house itself to be generously proportioned, clean as a whistle, decorated in rustic elegance, making an ideal hideaway for two or a holiday home for children and adults. The bright, well-appointed and organized kitchen with steel appliances is geared to awaken your inner chef although we chose mostly to dine at nearby restaurants both casual and formal. The local fare of game and delicious desserts is intriguing, strengthening, and unforgettable. We enjoyed the villa's second floor with its ample closets, beautiful bathrooms. and balconies. Close to Peles Castle, where one can stroll, tour, or sit for hours at the outdoor cafe, Poem Boem, while quiet, is a few steps from civilization. The train station is close by but we drove back from Bucharest by car each day thrilled to see the mountains beckoning from the highway. Polite, discreet housekeeping made one feel at home and like never leaving. You'll be grateful to the builder for the exercise the interior stairs afford. I was. My husband and I shall be returning to Poem Boem very soon indeed.
