  • Staying with Maria felt like visiting old friends. We were greeted with a warm welcome, cups of tea, good conversation, and 3 lively children. The room was spacious, comfortable, and clean, with private en suite bathroom. Maria was very flexible with our check in and check out time. This was our first time using airbnb, and the more personal experience of getting to stay with locals was exactly what we were looking for. Definitely recommended if you enjoy interacting with kids and being treated to berries fresh from the garden.

Gordon and I have been living in this house since 2006 when we bought it new. We have four children between the ages of 5 and 10. We enjoy country life, growing our own food, we keep chickens and rear pigs for the table. We both love to read lots and have an extensive library in our house. We also have a table tennis table and a piano. We love having visitors and have a relaxed and informal family home with lots of good food and home cooking. Do come and stay.
