Lovely touches like coffee in the cupboard, shower gel in the bathroom...home from home. Very central. One thing that would help would be a map of parking as it's not directly outside. Would recommend and definitely rent again.

They are wonderful welcoming hosts and the accommodation is excellent. We cycled, swam and drove to see Heidleberg, We would certainly like to return to this property. Dymphna (Dublin)
