This was our second time staying with Marilu. Actually, this time it was our parents that stayed here, not us. But Marilu welcomed us all in -- even offering my husband and I breakfast (even though we were not actually staying with her ourselves. We had our apartment to stay in.) Marilu was absolutely wonderful - as usual. She helped...

“Marilu has 5(?) rooms. I stayed in the two private rooms that opens to the back terrace, A3 and A4 - both were OK - A3 was better. (A4 doesn't have window). From what I saw of the others - the private one /double that has a window to the front street is the nicest and largest one.”
