Perry and Assi were very friendly and helping. Everything went smooth as agreed and we had no problems at all. Departure is very flexible organised to leave the keys on specified place so there is no stress if you need to leave in a hurry. The host left us inflatable mattress, which was really great because I needed it for children.

Perfect organisation of the key handing over. Really very hospitably and cooperatively. Even the demand for a hairdrier... it gives him, Perry! Thank you very much!
