Would you like to translate?
Mit kleinen Einschränkungen war "Casa Botticelli" OK - kleinere Mängel können sicherlich vom Vermieter schnellstens behoben werden.
Somit stimmt das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis unseres Erachtens nicht ganz.
Der Treppenlift ist, wenn man ihn nicht braucht, sehr lästig.
Mückenspray nicht vergessen!
