Interaction with Guests
Any of my guests should feel free to contact me, or don't contact me. At the beginning I will explain them all the details, give them all the advises and the towels. At the end I will say good bye and thank you of course. It is up to my guests to contact me if they need anything. But I respect their privacy.

Very lovely and clean house with friendly hosts not much more to say other than all the best in your studies Olga
Olga and Kriss are the best couple in the world. They made us feel so comfortable in such a stressful schedule we were going through. Every time we talked to them, they took stress away.
There is so much positive energy in the house which we felt as soon as we stepped in.
Everything is kept clean and organised, room is nice, cozy and beautiful.There are no restrictions. Fully functioning kitchen is available.We felt like we were in our own home.
We will definitely visit them whenever we come back to Ireland.
We came as a guest but left as a family. We are so lucky to have met such great persons.
Simply there are no enough words to explain their hospitality and personality.
I will highly recommend everybody who is looking for an accommodation in this area to book with them.
Thank you Olga and Kriss for having us and making us feel so comfortable.
Good luck to you, may god bless you and always stay happy.
