Gerda was very welcoming and hospitable. The building could do with a little TLC, but otherwise a lovely stay.

Thank you to Gerda for opening up her home to us, it felt like I was visiting a relative. She called to check if we were still okay and made sure we were comfortable. I appreciated the breakfast spread she had laid out for us.

Hi, I'd like to thank Gerda and Nick for their hospitality during our stay.I like the fact that my boys had their own room with an en-suite! They were quite excited about that. The aircon was also a plus, as it was quite humid during our stay.I didn't like the fact that we could ONLY watch the same t.v. channel that the hostess was watching (and there was quite a bit of channel-hopping - to programs that we were not interested in at all)In my personal opinion, the décor needs a little work...simplistic, modern, white...is always a winner.
