Response from the owner Dear Flipkey Thank you for the opportunity for guests to submit reviews - very easy and user friendly. I have noticed that, in the above review from Carol and Ron Domanski for Felsensicht Holiday Home, there are 2 spelling errors. Could you correct these? In the heading, Awesome should have an "e". In the 2nd last line, definitely also has an "e'. I do hope you will be able to assist with these minor (but important) changes. Thank you and best regards Gail Hochreiter
