5/5 Excellent

We stayed in the large apartment and enjoyed the view, fully stocked kitchen. The hosted is very kind. We loved playing with the goats and cats.

We had a wonderful stay at this home. The apartment is big and spotless with a panorama view of the farm. The host Helena is very friendly and her goats are super sweet.

Greatest experience I’ve ever had on vacation. Helena made us feel right at home and gave us her number in case we needed any help while on our trip. Was able to see the northern lights almost every night of the trip due to the great location.
