Stephanie and Carl welcomed us directly upon arrival with a glas of wine and a very nice chat. We knew we made the right choice even before we saw the room. From that point onwards it just kept getting better. The room had a wonderful view on nearly a kilometer of the river. Facing away from the street it was very quiet and we slept heavenly. Once awake we only had to open the fridge for a lovely breakfast which Stephanie prepared.
Both Stephanie and Carl gave us great suggestions on where to go and what to visit. So plan more then one night here - you'll regret not having booked a few days to a week.
I think it is clear - we absolutely enjoyed our stay and hope to return the hospitality if our hosts make it to our end of the world.
