Lovely experience with a relaxing garden, kind and thoughtful hosts, and sweet pets! The apt was well-situated with street parking, and our hosts had everything ready and planned out in advance-- from fresh linens and beach towels to a kitchen stocked with pots and pans and coffee. The place is cozy, clean, and bright-- just what we needed to unwind for a few days before returning home.
We had a fantastic stay at Marlene's home! We loved the garden and animals, especially George the Tortoise.
We have such a wonderful time in this amazing one-bed apartment. Not to mention the lovely garden. It is close to shops, cafes, and places to eat. it has everything you need, plus many more. And the hosts were extremely welcoming and warm. And they have a Turtle! George. We loved him. Wish we could stay longer. Much longer....
This was our first (website hidden) experience. What a wonderful experience it was. Marlene greeted us, gave us a tour of the gardens and introduced us to George. We'll be back. John & Beverly
Marlene & Makoto made us feel so welcome. They are wonderful hosts and have a beautiful, clean apartment & amazing gardens!
Marlene und Makoto are a great host. They welcomed us upon our arrival and made parking easy. The place is really nice, beautiful garden, peaceful neighbourhood. The place was as described. We are travelling with our one year old and everything worked out fine. Makoto and Marlene always checked everything was alright and had some great tips about the neighbourhood (acess to the beach, shopping, ...).
We would defenitly recomend this place and book it again.
Wish the listing was a lot more clear about no pets.
