Atención a los huéspedes
Before we decided to invite guests to our cabins, we checked around quite a bit and rented several ourselves. We then used the experience gathered to furnish and equip them. The key amenities adding up to a comfortable and satisfying stay, we found out are a well equipped kitchen, even when not cooking every day, enough bathrooms and good sleeping comfort. In almost all cases, we experienced one or more of these ingredients were missing.

Lisa is originally from West Virginia and Hans from Holland. They met on a cruise in the Baltic. As Hans works in the cruise industry, travel and hosting is a way of life for us and on our own vacations, we almost always we rent a house ourselves. Not only because it's such a great way to vacation, but also to see how others do it.
