Here is Peter's Feedback:

Highly Recommended
This is a delightful modern apartment within easy walking distance of the old town. The apartment is well appointed and the owner met us on arrival to advise how to use the appliances. The apartment is a two level apartment with the bedroom upstairs accessed by steep stairs (our only slight reservation). There is a downstairs bathroom and a full bathroom upstairs. There is no English language instruction book. Underground parking is available but large cars will find access challenging. There are bread and pizza shops downstairs and the bike hire one block away. The owner provided us with a free public transport voucher which we used for the buses on occasion. It is a little far to the station (1.2 klm) with bags but the local bus drops you only 100 metres from the apartment. There is a major supermarket three blocks away. The old town has many restaurants and bars, the ferry is 1 klm and the Meersberg car ferry about 2.5 klm. Bike hire is 10E per day and everyone rides.

What I liked best: Modern apartment

What I liked least: the street front
