We arrived down in Studham to attend my daughters passing out parade. Our party consisted of two pensioners, my thirteen year old son and my wife and I. We had seen the pictures on line but that still did not prepare us properly. This house is fantastic, full of charm and character. We loved it from the off. Liesa kept in touch before we arrived enquiring if there was anything that she could do to make our stay all the more perfect, its a nice touch. The rooms are beautiful and the beds are really comfortable, There are fresh towels for everyone and big fluffy robes and slippers to make you feel at home, Tv in all the rooms and a lovely big bathroom with a cracking shower. We used the indoor pool which was really nice and again there were towels available. Hot tub and gym were also there. Fabulous sun trap of a back garden where we enjoyed the company of two alpacas and some chickens Liesa allowed us to feed them apples my son in particular loved this. This really is a home from home and I would have been more than happy continuing my break there a while longer. Studham is a very quiet village with two pubs, we enjoyed a meal in The Bell and everyone was very friendly and the food was well priced and tasty. This is a great location for a break with the airport being about 20 minutes away, Whipsnade zoo and London not far. We had a reason to be here this time but have already thought that we would struggle to find a better and more hospitable place to spend a few days off. On behalf of the family thank you Liesa (and Mark) for a thoroughly enjoyable stay. You know where we are if you need a break !
Awwww fanks guys... look out Scotland as I am sure we will take you up on your very kind offer xxx
We had an absolutely lovely stay with Liesa. She and her partner Mark were extremely accommodating and allowed us to host a surprise baby shower for our friends, which meant we took up most of the living space as well as outside. The house and garden are amazing. We loved having he opportunity o feed the alpacas in the morning. We didn't have a chance to try the local pubs but they looked really nice and we are hoping to be able to stay again. Can't thank Leisa enough for the hospitality. Xx
This place and Liesa and Mark are just amazing. They welcome you like old friends and love to talk. The room was clean and cozy, the pool was great, and the general atmosphere was relaxing. We wished we could have stayed just a bit longer and would likely stay here again if we are coming back this way.
To find words to translate "Arohanui" would be "Heaven"
and a word to translate "Liesa" would be "Angel"
Yes, it is an immaculate paradise this amazing place and this experience my family and I had in "Arohanui" with Liesa.
She is far more than just a Host! She treat my family and I with so much care to our individuals needs to make special every single moment we have spent there.
The house is a such masterpiece of love inspiration in every single way.
Being in Arohanui with Liesa was a special Bless and privilege. Any time of the year to be there is definitely a home feeling and a perfect place to relax and enjoy your family and friends.
House offers a stoning design, decoration, style and welcome.
I don't have words and adjectives to describe such unforgettable special moments that will last forever in our memories with Liesa.
We spent Easter day together and it was one to remember and keep in the special part of our hearts.
My 7 years old girl cried when we left and she is asking me several times a day when we are going back to see Liesa and stay in her home. She just love Liesa!
I just want to say once more
THANK YOU for all your efforts and for giving us this privilege to meeting you and your blessed home.
We love YOU!
God Bless You!
I don't even know where to start! I came to stay with a group of ladies, there was 8 of us in total which meant we paid for the whole house. We are a group of Christian women and were looking for somewhere to go for a weekend retreat. First of all, when speaking with Liesa before booking and just after she was incredibly helpful. I explained to her all our concerns and that the group of us will be praying together during most of the time of our stay so we might be might make some noise but this didn't bother her at all, we were still welcome, that really put us all at ease. When we arrived she was so welcoming and really made us feel at home right away. Our beds were SO comfortable and the interior of the house was extremely beautiful. Our stay was for 2 nights. She made us breakfast on the first day which was quite crazy as there was 8 of us on the dining table all wanting different types of foods but she still catered for us with a big smile on her face! We were also making lunch and dinner during our stay which Liesa was more than okay with, she even joined us at times.. This bought a very warm atmosphere in the house. A few of us ladies were not cat lovers at all and Liesa went the extra mile to keep one of her cats outside of the house during the majority of hour stay which was just so kind of her. If anyone needed something that they may have forgotten at home, she had it there ready for us. She has every toiletry you can possible think of- for her guests. There is so much to say about this amazing women, this is meant to be a review but I've written a story so I hope this says a lot about Liesa. We all loved having her as our mum for two days and will definitely be back!!!
Awww Rachael that's so lovely - it was a pleasure having you lovely ladies come and stay... you are welcome anytime x
Liesa was incredible and her home is beautiful. We were a mixed group of adults and young children, and could not have been more welcome. Even when one of our group became unwell with a virus Liesa was so positive and went above and beyond the call of duty. She really was our knight in shinning armour!
Liesa is a most welcoming host, her home exudes warmth and hospitality and far exceeded our expectations in every way.
The neighbourhood is a very peaceful area and a place of much natural beauty.
We made a last minute booking with Liesa for our anniversary and thanks to her it was everything we could have wished for! She was away on the first night so very kindly left instructions with a key for us to make ourselves at home - even left the log fire burning!. When I booked, the hot tub was empty for cleaning, but she still ensured that it was filled and nice and hot for our arrival. Liesa has put her heart and soul into building the house and it really shows. So cosy, laid back, with an amazing breakfast as well (with freshly laid eggs!). All this coupled with her hospitality makes it a no brainer! Looking forward to returning in the summer months when we can make the most of the pool and amazing garden! Thanks Liesa!
THE PERFECT WEEKEND!!
Arriving at the house Leisa made us (9 person party) feel so welcome:-) We were all taken aback at how beautiful the house is, the pictures don't portray the warm and friendly atmosphere Leisa creates.
The weekend couldn't have gone better, Leisa was very accommodating, letting us take over her front room to relax after a boozy Friday night!! And a lovely breakfast provided to bring us back to life. The beds were super comfortable, clean and fresh rooms and every toiletry you could imagine if we had forgotten anything.
The hot tub was a great way to relax in the evening, Leisa provided us with robes incase anyone was cold getting in and out.
Leisa was a truely fantastic host and we will definitely be returning for another weekend get away.
Stunning surroundings, amazing garden, nice little pub around the corner.
Fantastic place to stay with friends and friends:) 10/10
Lots of love
The girls from London! X x
Amazing airbnb experience. We have just returned from 5 wonderful days at Liesa's and cannot believe what an incredible host she was. From the moment we booked, we knew from the lovely emails and information that was sent to us, that we had picked the perfect place to stay. Liesa and Mark went out of their way to make sure that everything was perfect, doing everything possible to make sure their guests had a great time. There is not one thing that she hadn't thought of and nothing was too much trouble. Her lovely cooked breakfasts were delicious and we felt very relaxed and comfortable in her lovely home. Such a beautiful part of the country. We loved Harpenden. Thank you for everything Liesa and we can't wait to return.
Liesa and Mark were a pleasure to have as guests .They were so appreciative of the apartment and left it in immaculate condition .
Communication was delightful from the start with Liesa arriving at the agreed time and being so up for our suggestions for places to visit and experience .I hope that they had a great weekend in my beloved London Town .
Thanks so much for an amazing experience - you really are a fountain of knowledge and we were so very sad to leave... see you next time and thanks so much again for such an amazing experience!
Liesa was a wonderful guest; very interested in New Orleans, clean, quiet and respectful of the property. I really enjoyed meeting her and hope she returns to the Cottage.
