Absolut herrliches Haus, geniale Lage!!

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Haus ist einfach der Hammer! Die Lage ist unbezahlbar, mit herausragender Aussicht! Dazu bietet es alles, was man braucht, um einen entspannten Urlaub zu haben. Die Vermieterin, Josephine, ist unglaublich freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Bananenbrot war grandios!! So hat es unheimlich Spaß gemacht, die Umgebung zu entdecken und hat uns ein unvergessliches Erlebnis in diesem herrlichen Land ermöglicht.

A great time was had by all!

  • 5 of 5

The house is well laid out and has everything that a family would need for a holiday. The description and the photos are correct. Everything worked properly. A couple of the matresses were moving towards the end of their useful life, but there were no problems.

My 92 year old mother was with us and, despite her infirmities, was able to enjoy her holiday thanks to the handicap facilities. Lots of laughs, games and Relaxation. Josephine was a gracious hostess and her home baking tastes wonderful.

We all returned well relaxed and would have no hesitation in booking the house again.
