It’s a year and a few months now since Linda and I took over Easy Five. The previous owners, Karin and Siggi Konrad, operated the guesthouse for 10 years or more, and had built up a loyal clientele of mainly German-speaking couples, many of whom returned year after year for a week, or two weeks or even longer. Understandably, these long-standing guests were concerned about what the change in ownership might mean for the vacation spot they had come to know and love, and about which they doubtless felt just a little bit possessive.
I’m new to this whole guesthouse thing so when someone told me that the two most important things for guests are the comfort of their pillows at night and the quality of their coffee in the morning, I took it to heart.
After more than 10 years of operation by Karin and Siggi Konrad, Easy Five gained new owners in April, 2015 when Canadians Linda and Francis Moran purchased the property and the business.
