Debbie hat uns herzlich begrüßt und die Wohnung gezeigt und alles erklärt. Sogar im Kühlschrank war bereits alles Nötige vorhanden. Zudem Gaby auch eine Waschmaschine und Tumbler in der Wohnung. Es fehlte an nichts. Im Gegenteil wir wurden richtig verwöhnt und fühlten uns wie zu Hause. Die Wohnung war sehr gut eingerichtet und geräumig. Die Lage fantastisch, denn wir könnten entweder alles zu Fuß oder mit den ÖV's in Kürze erreichen. Debbie und ihr Mann Col sind wirklich super Vermieter und Gastgeber. Wir hatten eine herliehe Zeit!
My second time staying at Debbie's. Great stay. Well equipped, clean and setup.
Home away from home.
Debbie and Col are very special people who helped us so much. We enjoyed meeting them and will not forget how they helped us sell a bicycle and explain the local area and the best walks to do when we arrived in the Alps. We will not forget these interesting and gracious pair.the accommodation was wonderful and exceeded our expectations.
Debbie and Col were lovely hosts, accommodating, friendly and with such a cosy apartment! A great stay, thank you both:)
Great apartment with lots of room, conveniently located within easy walking distance of both train station and the historic town center. The owners were extremely helpful and accommodating. We had a wonderful visit.
I stayed at Debbie & Colin's luxury house with my 10-year-old daughter for 3 nights. Though I am not good at English, I felt warmly welcomed by them on arrival.
Because their preparations are perfect, we had nothing to request further. They supplied enough food for breakfast(bread, cheese, eggs and drinks), great Switzerland wine, plenty of towels and some DVD titles for my daughter.
As for their house, it showed the owners' excellent artistic sense. I was touched with beautiful antiques and artworks in every corners. Besides, all the facilities and furniture were very clean and convenient. In conclusion, the house was far beyond the descriptions on their listing page.
Location was perfect to tour the old city and numerous museums.
I want to come back their house definitely if I have another chance. I would like to thank Debbie & Colin for their kind hospitality.
My wife, teenage son, and I had a wonderful week long stay. The location was Excellent ! Public transportation was just at the corner; it was only a ten minute walk to the center of Old Town; and there were markets within five minutes walk. The apartment was everything and more than described in the listing. It was very comfortable in every respect. The extra effort shown by Deb in providing some initial groceries and champagne upon our arrival allowed us to enjoy our first evening without rushing to a grocery. And finally, her offer to drive us to the airport at the end of our stay took away the hassle / stress on that final day.
I would highly recommend the apartment - without hesitation - if you are considering a stay in Basel.
