More about us

  1. We are a married couple expecting a new addition to our family in April! We live and work in Kathmandu but plan on going to the U.S. for the birth and maternity leave and would love a find a place for us and our new one to stay during that time close to our family.

  2. My wife, Sarah, is American and works as a long-term consultant on a USAID project improving freshwater resources in Nepal. I am an agricultural engineer from Spain and design vertical gardens and urban green spaces.

  3. We love to travel and have lived in quite a few different countries, mainly in Asia. We are very adaptable and love experiencing and exploring new environments. I am very interested in architecture and gardening, and my wife loves reading, traveling and animals (especially cats!).

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Our house is in a very central part of Kathmandu on the border of Lazimpat and Panipokhari. You are 10 minutes walking distance from a very nice supermarket with many restaurants, shops, yoga and a Saturday farmers market within 5-15 minutes walking distance. Taxis are easy to get on the main road outside of our complex. Our area is about a 5 minute drive from the main street in town called Durbar Marg, 10 minutes from the tourist hub of Thamel, 20 minutes from Patan and 15 minutes from the airport.

Buzzy restaurants
Tasty Japanese, French, Vietnamese, Korean and of course Nepali food on Lazimpat Rd., all of them within 10-15 minutes walking distance.
Cool bars
Quite a few bars on Lazimpat, including Jazz Upstairs and Sukrabar for music and Vino Bistro for nice wine and charcuterie. Ventures Cafe in Baluwatar is good for craft and imported beers.
Cozy cafés
Cafe Soma for good coffee, western food (eggs, sandwiches, salads, etc.), Le Sherpa is a more upscale restaurant but has a nice terrace just for a coffee as well. There is a cozy cafe next to Le Sherpa and Museum B&B. All within 5-15 minutes walking distance.
Retail therapy
Lots of shops on Lazimpat selling Nepali handicrafts (e.g., Mahaguthi) and cashmere. Head to touristy Thamel for all kinds of souvenirs.
Bit of culture
Everywhere you look in Kathmandu is culture! Beautiful temples and stupas are everywhere. Some of the more famous ones are Boudhanath (Tibetan), Swayambhunath Stupa (Monkey Temple), and Pasupatinath. See the old centers of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur for ancient architecture. There is no shortage of culture here!
Walks in the park
There aren't many parks in Kathmandu itself, but there are lovely places to walk and do day hikes within 30 minutes - 1.5 hours away. Shivapuri is a nearby park with nice, easy walks to monasteries and waterfalls. Nargakot is abotu 1.5 hours away and famed for its sunrises over the Himalayas. There are also old villages and towns to explore in the Kathmandu Valley. Hire a driver or car and explore!
Spot of exercise
Trekking, of course! This is THE country to trek the Himalayas! There are treks ranging from a few days to multiple weeks in the highest mountain ranges in the world. There are also options for mountain biking, day hikes, rafting, etc.
Day tripping
Ancient towns such as Bhaktapur and Kirtipur. Peaceful mountain towns/views like Nagarkot and Pulchoki. Visit the Namo Buddha Tibetan monastery in Dhulikel. Lots to see and do in a day or two!
