Living room is spacious, kitchen is functional and modern, the main floor bedroom is nice. Separate toilet from bath-shower was convenient for the 5 of us. Toilet sink very small. Bathtub is large, water pressure quite low. The upstairs bedroom is adequate although the third bed needs a better mattress. Linens and towels need upgrading. Rooftop deck is awesome, weather permitting. Ric was punctual. The only concern for some are the steep, narrow stairs, both up to the apartment and in the apartment. Overall, a great place for 2-3 people.

The house is lovely from the outside entrance to the back yard. You will find places to hang all your coats. Living room is furnished with style. There is a TV, receiver and WiFi. Kitchen diner is of excellent quality. All appliances and even there was tea, coffee, sugar, sweetener, spices and some remaining oil, pasta and rice from previous renters. This was really helpful as we arrived in the evening. Backyard is fantastic. I bet in the summer, breakfast outside is great fun. The bikes were source of joy to the kids. Bedrooms are great. If you are not paying, you need to take all the bed linens; sheets, duvet covers and pillow cases. And towels. In the loft, next to a bedroom, there is a utility room for washing, dryer and ironing. Can't thank Elly enough for always being there. She sorted all our needs in no time. Thank you Agatha and Elly for making our break a great experience. Rana
