Here is Matthew's Feedback:

We highly recommend this place!
The apartment and the owners were great. We especially liked that there were all the comforts of home when it came to things like appliances (hairdryer, iron with ironing board, coffee-maker and other kitchen appliances etc). We also liked that there were basic household goods for example salt, pepper, coffee, tea, paper towels, plastic wrap, foil, dish washing liquid, hans-soap, laundry detergent, toilett-paper etc. An apartment we rented trough someone else a few years ago missed all that and it got very expensive to buy it all for a short stay. We of course replaced what we used up a lot of and I'm sure what is provided can vary from time to time. The property was very well kept and it happened to be Easter while we were there and we loved all the effort the owners put into decorating and the lovely Easter candy basket they made for us. It is also in an excellent location with walking distance into town and to the grocery store.

What I liked best: The owners

What I liked least: Nothing was bad
