loved the city and certainly we loved the apartment. It was neat, clean and cozy. Craig was very welcoming. He made a tremendous effort to make our stay as enjoyable as it was. A file including helpful info (events, activities, building rules... etc) was a really nice gesture. Thanks Craig.
p.s We highly recommend this apartment to who ever wants to spend some time in this wonderful city.
Craig is an excellent host, flexible, helpful and responsive, it was a huge pleasure to meet him! He prepared for us very useful materials about the town and nearby atractions. The apartment is very comfortable and well equiped. Located close to the center of the town but still in quiet neighbourhood, makes a perfect spot for holidays.
This is a brilliant flat in a great location. Craig is super organised and has tried to cover all the bases to make our stay enjoyable. I'd highly recommend it.
My wife and I were met by Craig who made us feel very welcome (even remembering it was our wedding anniversary) and showed us everything in the apartment - even preparing relevant local information and weather forecasts for our stay. The apartment is large, is in a great location for the town centre, hikes or driving to attractions around the region. The apartment was also extremely well equipped, including a large tv and dishwasher! We would certainly stay here again. Many thanks Craig.
Craig was a awesome host well organised kept all details prepared to make our stay easy and nice . Only problem is with the wc pot which is in a small place with out the wash basin and no proper exhaust . Old apartment but very well maintained .
Thank you Craig. That was a wonderful flat. We enjoyed our stay in this flat. It was clean bright, has a lake view from kitchen . It is located near everything. Within 10 minutes walking you reach train station though little hilly but very manageable. I certainly will stay again in this flat.
The stay at Craig apartment was perfect for the week
Here is all you need and the walk to first lift is just 250 m
I can highly recommend both Craig and the apartment
This is the reason why airbnb is a success
Nice host - nice flat - reasonable prices
We'll be back some day
