  • Lovely home and the location was great but the only thing that...

    Lovely home and the location was great but the only thing that went wrong was my partner and I slept on the pull-out sofa and woke up with itchy bites all over is back. Other than that our stay was still enjoyable.

  • The location was excellent - private and quiet

    The location was excellent - private and quiet. The apartment had many little touches (chocolates, hand written note, hot chocolate...) that made it feel very homey and made us feel welcome. It was relaxing to come "home" after a day of sightseeing and relax with a meal we could cook ourselves and a movie or game.

    Chris and Denis had the heating on for us and fresh linen on beds. Perfect for a little family. So close to the lake too. Only about 10 to 15 minutes out of town. The property is modern and clean. Bar size fridge suitable for a small family or a small group. Warm carpets, excellent heating, modern kitchen. Off-street parking. Quiet area with lovely walks. Can kayak on the lake too. Lovely quiet area if you are seeking some peace. Very homely and welcoming. Thank you Chris and Denis.
