Sabine, thank you for the lovely review. Very kind of you. Your family were polite, clean, respectful of the property and easy to communicate with.
To clarify the final point for other guests as it can be easily misconstrued: I am *only* present with guests for the key handover at check-in & -out. I clean/tidy the apartment daily and I also work from my home office which I clear with all guests. I work in time windows that guests dictate and its never been a problem to date. In fact, not only do guests return to a clean apartment but this simply adds another layer of security for guests belongings.
I do not want future guests to think that I simply enter the premises without warning or anything weird!
I would recommend Sabine and her family anytime for any potential future hosts!
