Denne lejlighed er præcis så lys og lækker, som den fremstår på billederne. Vi nød især brændeovnen, de to altaner og muligheden for at tage karbad. Det var helt perfekt i starten af (website hidden) Marie havde lavet en udførlig og nyttefuld hus manual. Desuden havde hun stillet en flaske vin frem til os og tilbudt, at vi kunne drikke af de øl, der var blevet til overs fra en fest. Fornemt!
Kvarteret var særdeles hyggeligt med mange spændende spisesteder og kulturtilbud indenfor gåafstand og væk fra Mitte's larm og støj. Der var lyst, rent og roligt og tilpas med luksus til, at vi kunne slappe helt af. Vi kommer gerne igen.
The apartment was great. It was spacious, clean and had two great balconies. The communication with Jo Marie was easy and she did everything to make us feel welcome.
The area was quiet and nice, and there were great cafes and restaurants near by.
