Great location. Such welcoming hosts. Felt more like long lost friends rather than a stranger coming to stay. Completely spoilt while there. Lovely people. You can't go wrong with the House of Swings

Gabby and John's place is just right. They give a very warm welcome with nothing left to know about lights, doors and facilities. They are very chatty with sound advice on where to go and how to get there. (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps paled into insignificance against John's instructions on how to get to Dam Square from their flat. Excellent value and I would recommend it to all

Gabriela and John were lovely hosts who catered to our every need. There apartment is located perfeclty within a quiet district but still only a nice short walk away from the very inner City. Definite recommendation.

Wonderful couple, with a beautiful place. The most amazing bed, and Gabriella's stylish touch everywhere in the home and bath! John was very meticulous with all details, check in, transport and breakfast. And a very nice taxi driver to get to the airport!

The apartment is very well located just few minutes walk from Jordan neighborhood, quiet and fully equipped. John is super kind and helpful (unfortunately we couldn't meet Gabriella) and we loved our stay there even if short.
