Angie lives in a nice spot. It’s a 10 minute downhill walk into town. You’ll enjoy some nice views on your way.
Angie offered me a lovely cup of tea (using her own blend of herbs) upon arrival, which was delicious. She also made sure to keep the fire going, & let me use her (filtered by reverse osmosis) bottled water. Her house has kind of a hipster vibe to it.
You will see that she does not allow kitchen use, & I believe that she is now fairly strict about this. I asked if I could have an exemption prior to arriving, & she kindly obliged, stating, “Yes, I can allow some kitchen use in the evening after 6pm (also, week-ends are ok)”. Post arrival, she asked if I could keep it to Mon. & Thurs. night, which I was initially ok with. Then I was told on a Sat. night, (while I was only standing & eating) that the kitchen was off limits...& that I was not even allowed to wash my dishes...& then I wanted to leave. I was upset that I was told one thing pre-booking, and another post-arrival. I was initially supposed to stay for 28 days, & this was shortened to 10, mostly because of this. So, the moral of the story is that she doesn’t want to share her kitchen. I was very clean & considerate when I did use it, so that was not the issue.
So, expect to eat out every day for breakfast, lunch, & dinner. There are a few good places to eat in town. Angie first recommended the Turkish restaurant which was excellent.
Our communication was mostly through AirBnB. Angie was very professional, & gave me a refund for what we agreed on, which was very nice of her. Her communication was very good throughout the process.
I was also scolded for being in the bathroom from 11:30pm-Midnight. So, if you are a night owl, or have bladder issues, well, you should probably stay somewhere else.
Some other misc. comments....The shower is great, nice pressure, & the bathroom is very clean. The bed was so-so. The bed linens were in rough shape. The sheets had large stains, an off smell, seemed old, & did not feel very clean. One blanket had a large hole in it. The room gets chilly at night if you close the door (as most heat comes from the wood stove in the living room). Angie is quiet, & the place is very good for studying, & that sort of thing. Most noise can be heard anywhere in the house(URL HIDDEN)
Overall, I would say that it’s an ok place to stay short term (few days) with better bed linens, but I would not recommend long term, primarily due to there being no kitchen access.
I’m very very grateful that Angie could come to an agreement with me, so that I could get on with my travels.
