Kris's home is amazing. Not just a bare house like others I have stayed in, this really felt like a home away from home. I was a little wary based on a sole negative review just before our visit as all the rest had been glowing,but I so felt confident in continuing our booking. So glad we did and I have deduced that negative reviewer has never stayed in home stays before or is on crack. The home is EXACTLY as described if not better and more spacious. We had my 90 year old mother stay with us and she had no difficulties negotiating the halls, house or backyard. The front room is separated from the living room and the 2 other rooms are separated from each other by the kitchen, which means each room has its own privacy. The Kitchen, was modern, new, clean and extremely well catered for, hope Kris doesn't mind but we left a set of tongs as someone may have taken a set. "Half jars of food" are often left as a courtesy to other guests so you dont have to buy everything from scratch, as are spices etc., which is something most people know who stay in home stays. The beds by the way were incredibly comfortable, and the toilet and bathroom are separate which is great when staying with others.As to the comment about the bathroom being small, I don't know how many people you want in there at one time but we had 3 females and made out just fine. I was even able to be in there with my mum as she took her shower.
Kris left us alone but if we had questions answered them straight away.
The back deck is stunning, and we only wish the weather was a little better as we would have been out there every day. The back yard is not overgrown it is gorgeous,tranquil and well maintained. The toilet is also not a long way and I would suggest if you have trouble navigating in the dark, not surprising in an unfamiliar home, bring either a torch nightlight, or even use your cell phone. It isn't rocket science. We had a car but we were able to walk to the nearby bakery in about 10 mins and transport was close by. I would love to stay again if Kris would have us and urge anyone thinking of a "home" stay to book with Kris
It is a small apartment in a convenient location. Everything was new or nearly so and in good working order. I especially liked the shower. The electricity went out in part of the apartment during the night. Unfortunately it was the circuit my cell phone was being charged on and the circuit to the router. I had to search for a fuse box. Please include the location of the box for future renters. Overall I’d recommend the place.
