Interactie met gasten
We leave the amount of interaction entirely up to you and respect your preference. The 2 of us and our dog live in the upper part of our home above the apartment, so you may hear sounds of life, although we make an effort to keep it minimal when guests are in the apartment. We will be readily available to you during your stay here and are happy to answer any questions and do what we can to ensure your stay is enjoyable and comfortable.
Light breakfast fixings will be provided if requested by guests.
Our small dog (dachshund) lives with us upstairs, but never enters the apartment.

We love living on Fox Island and have lived here for 26 years. We really enjoy meeting people, especially from "other lands". We love to travel and experience different cultures, peoples and places, although we also enjoy coming home to Fox Island.
