Our host, Vernon, was charming and helpful. The apartment had restaurant guides that helped us find a perfect place for a great meal. Vernon lent us a... More

Bare light bulb, curtains at least a foot too short for the window, towels hung like in a mens changing room. No heating. Vernon very kind and helpful, but doesnt make up for the excuse that is his guest house! We didnt stay :-( Very expensive night, as paid in advance
