Matt's place was wonderful. A huge house with literally everything and anything you could need. Great place for kids, a lot of fun stuff to keep them occupied! Only note I have is that the house is only reachable through the backyard, which requires you to go up a tight staircase so getting luggage up wasn't the easiest thing. Great location with shops and grocery stores nearby. We would definitely stay here again :)

It was wonderful staying in this beautiful house, it was a real pleassure, I would love to stay there again. The game room in the basement was a bit small and we had a hard time to stand there, but that also worked and it was really fun. This would be our only real point of discussion. The describtion given on the website of airbnb is 100% correct with what is given, the house and stay is really worth the money and even more. With kind regards, Ivana and friends

Auch wenn das Wetter nicht so mitgespielt hat, wie wir uns das gewünscht hätten, hat uns der Aufenthalt in Matts Villa sehr gut gefallen. Insbesondere die Dachterrasse mit Grill und Feuerstelle lädt zum gemütlichen Ausklingen des Tages ein.

Die Fotos des Traumhauses entsprechen genau dem, was man dann in der Realität sieht : viel liebe zum detail! Alles lädt ein sich wohl zu fühlen und noch länger zu bleiben! Durch die Offenheit des Gastgebers bleiben keine fragen offen! Wer ein gemütliches zusammensein sucht ist hier genau richtig!

Het is een groot huis, van alle gemakken voorzien. Er zijn genoeg bedden, stoelen, borden, bekers, bestek, et cetera. Er is genoeg om je te vermaken (spelcomputers, spellen, een biljarttafel, voetbaltafel, etc.), maar de omgeving is ook erg mooi. Je kunt erg mooi wandelen in het Teutoburger Wald. Wij waren met negen personen en hebben ons prima vermaakt.
