Other Things to Note
Please note that new years is the most popular time of year. Minimum booking during this period is three weeks.
A BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT: You are expected not to make any damage or marks on the floors, the walls, or the furniture. Many of the kitchen items are of fine quality. If you damage or break anything, you will be charged the replacement price.
CLEAN: You are expected to leave the kitchen clean after use. There's a dishwasher, so it's not too hard to just put your stuff in there. However, you need to be careful not to put in the dishwasher wooden items, including the knives, because they can't tolerate it.
