Staying in Deb's place was fine for us as a couple with a toddler: we just put him down in the bedroom, then braved the transfer to the camp bed in the living room for him when we went to bed. While we never met Deb, we had the impression through talking to her on the phone that she is a lovely person. She said she's booked with regular summer tenants from May to Oct understandably, but we would be keen to stay again when we're visiting our Swiss relatives in future.
