Great value Super location
Leon and Marina, the hosts are more familiar with the bed and breakfast model, so when we booked the whole house (four bedrooms three baths) new opportunities were presented. We thought we were renting the whole house, and we were, but when we arrived our party only required three of the bedrooms. Since their wonderful German Shepherd had little puppies that needed tending, Leon asked if he could stay there too with his wife in the fourth bedroom. In return they offered to cook for us. We ended up cooking for ourselves because we wanted to, but Marina also made us special treats. Leon did the dishes from time to time and kept turning himself inside out to be helpful to us in every way! These are fantastic people. I laugh when I recall our visit to others, telling them, "We rented the house and the Russians!" It was a wonderful vacation with our grown children and their spouses. Leon and Marina made the whole trip fantastic. He built fires in the fireplace, they changed our towels and sheets, cleaned up after us, and took out the garbage, etc. I can't say enough about how kind they are. If you need the whole house, I'm sure you can get it. But, I advise you let them "baby" you a little. It's fun!
Barbara, the only name we call you it is Barbara the Great!
We really enjoyed being with you and waiting for you back. All puppies are gone...
