Annett was very friendly and helpful. The place has a good location: Supermarket, pups and restaurants around. Very close to the points of interest.

Everything went very smoothly and we found the flat in tidy, clean condition. Annette was very helpful with directions upon our arrival, however, it would have been good to know that there was a bus connection from the airport directly to the house. Annette was a great host for us, we would definitely stay there again!
