    Thanks to Singapore Airlines inefficiency ,I actually saw very little of Karin and Gregor as I arrived in the middle of the night. However the next morning Gregor was so kind, lovely to talk to and really helped me out. The place is spotless and the electric blanket already on in a omfortable bed. Everything so relaxed and pleasant, can highly recommend. Thank you so much.

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.
