    I've enjoyed my stay with Esther and Reyer. I felt at home quite easily like they're my family, the house is clean, my room is super tidy and fresh, bathroom is sparkling clean. The couple is wonderful and super friendly, you will enjoy your chat with them and they'll make sure that your needs are attended to properly. Plus, they have 2 awesome dogs that are really quiet and lovely, not to mention Esther's amazing cooking skills when dinner time! Book with them, you won't be disappointed!

    You want to know my experiences with host Esther and her husband Reyer where I stayed for three weeks? Not all hosts are the same and if you try you can find at every place something to criticise , but then, Esther's place is exceptional. I was made welcome by both of them as from day one and whatever I asked for of my host it was attended to in a courteous manner. Often they could not do enough for me. Even I had some unexpected personal problems at the time I was always treated like family and as a friend. I also can highly recommend Esther's and .Reyer's Cooking . For a minimal amount you are welcome to share the perfect dinner every night at the family table. I only can recommend Esther's place. 5 stars well deserved

    Terrific. I enjoyed Reyer and Esther’s company and the room and facilities were perfect. Because of my other commitments I was unable to take Esther’s kind offer of dining with them that evening and I needed to depart early the following morning. I would definitely stay again if the opportunity to visit the area occurred. Easy to find and parking available. Thank you.

    I was not happy with this house. We were constantly blamed...for example : shut the doors too loudly..moving one or two items in the fridge ..drinking cold water from the fridge...putting plates too loud on the bench ..turning on the oven ....we were made to feel very uncomfortable and we heard them constantly making comments behind our back and we left there the 3rd night ...I tried so hard to obey all of there rules as well as my son did ..but nothing we did was good enough for them ..we always seemed to do the wrong thing. Not happy.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?
