“Julia’s place was wonderful! The location was incredibly central – right in the heart of the best sites and cafes. We simply had to step out the door to see everything. The apartment itself was lovely, with bright and cheery decorator touches and travel objects sprinkled around. We wish our apartment looked like Julia’s!” –Sean, June 2017

“Dani & Dori met me upon arrival and gave me great advice for sightseeing and for amazing restaurants. They were really friendly and made sure I had everything I needed before they left.

It was easy to get in touch with them in case I needed anything, such as a taxi back to the airport. They are the best hosts I’ve encountered in my many travels. Their flat is cozy and in the perfect location! It is very central to a lot of the tourist attractions. I had a wonderful time!” — Brittany, Feb 2018
