Everything went just very smoothly!! When we arrived, Kathleen's assistant was already waiting and explained us everything related to the apartment. The apartment itself is really amazing with a beautiful view!! We all enjoyed our stay every minute and we would definitely book it again. Thanks for everything.

The apartment is nice, spacious, and well equipped, there is even a juicer in the kitchen. It is a little walk from the beach promenade, but that was no big deal. There is a convenience store next to the apartment and we could always park the car nearby, though parking and driving can be tough during rush hours. The location is great to explore Sarande, Ksamil and Butrint etc. The hosts are very friendly and easy to communicate, there is even a cell phone to contact them. We really had a great time and - as a group of four adults and two kids - had enough space to feel comfortable and at home!

The apartment is lovely and clean with a wonderful balcony and amazing views. The kitchen is fully equipped. The check in process (getting the keys) did not go 'as planned' and could be improved. However, after accessing the apartment, the owners was very responsive. The location of the building is in a quiet neighborhood (15 min walk to the touristy areas and 20 min walk back up a hill).

Kathleen arranged for a taxi to pick us up from the port and bring us to the apartment. We were really wowed by the view, and the apartment was large and very clean. Unfortunately the man who showed us around didn't speak any English, so we were a little uncertain how to get down to the center of the city/beach. But as Kathleen had arranged a mobile phone for us to use for contact, we ended up working everything out. The water seemed to be pumped in, so when taking a shower, it would reduce to a drizzle, come back cold, and then back to normal for a few seconds. We got the hang of it by the end. 12 minute walk down to the beach (a lot shorter than it looks from the balcony). Get to the beach EARLY if you want a sunbed! Albanians camp out at the beach from 7am to 7pm, so if you miss the morning rush, there will be no room left (OK at Saranda beach, but not at Ksamil, where there is no room to lay down a towel).

The apartment of Kathleen & Persi was beautifully furnished and the view is breathtaking. The communication with the owners was easy and fast. Every question was answered promptly and there is a very nice man who picked us up from where the bus stopped in the middle of the night. He helped us with other stuff such as ordering a taxi or turn on the heating on the air-conditioners. We were staying at the apartment for one week over new year 2014/2015. If it is cold and windy outside it can get a bit chilly even with the heating on and sometimes the shower water was not perfectly warm. Even with these little problems I would recommend a stay during winter time at this apartment. The region is beautiful and in wintertime you have world heritage sites for yourself. If I come back to Saranda I will pick this apartment again for sure. It was a very pleasant stay.

We loved the design, the space and the views from the apartment. The apartment was attractively decorated and comfortable. A friendly family grocery store is ideally situated next door to the building. The host responded immediately to calls for help or advice. The apartment block was quiet and the local area was generally peaceful. The apartment is 20 minutes from the beaches up a series of very steep steps or roads which is not ideal for children or the elderly but it does afford it great views over the town.
