Esther is friendly and talkative. Through staying at her home, communicating with her was quite nice experience for me. The room (black and white) is clean.
Esther has a warm friendly personality which made me feel very welcome. It was a very relaxing place to stay with everything you need. I would definitely recommend Esther as a great choice for your next homestay.
