Here's what various guide books say about us...
Jennifer Susanto-Lee, Travel Journalist:
A warm welcome is always well-received, especially when you've been
travelling 5 hours and you're tired. Karen and Paul are professionals,
and it's evident they put themselves in the shoes (well socks) of
future guests when setting up this bed and breakfast. Clean as a whistle, close
to everything and the complimentary blackcurrant Gin kicks like a
mule. Well worth a stay.
Rick Steve's Amsterdam Guide:
Karen McCusker, a friendly English woman, rents cozy rooms in her
shoes-off home. The rooms are clean, white and bright with red
carpeting & green plants.
