I was honored to be Maria's first guest. Her house (villa) was absolutely fantastic, and simply couldn't have been better. It's far enough out of the city center to be comfortable, but not far enough to be an inconvenience.
The house itself was an absolute delight. Three bedrooms plus a huge couch in the living room, plenty of bathrooms, a full kitchen AND the sauna and giant bathtub. While I was at a work conference during the day, I hardly had enough time to spend at the house, and it certainly wasn't enough time! I didn't even get a chance to use the sauna.
Maria was more than hospitable. She left gifts for all my friends and I, had different colored towels for each of us, bedding was ready to go, etc. She was also in touch with all of us on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), and readily answered any questions we had in the house.
I know Maria had attention that the trains in the nearby station would be a distraction, but none of us noticed them at all. She was also very helpful with directions, and the house is only about a ten minute walk from the nearest train station.
I couldn't recommend Maria's house strongly enough to stay at, and I'm really looking forward to going back myself someday in the future.
