  • Property was not maintained well

    Property was not maintained well.We usually go holiday to relax but We had such a hard time while staying in this property.The property had a Rat - so our kids were very scared to use the spa & even while sleeping.Also the cooking equipment produces lots of Carbon that made us to struggle in the kitchen. Our holiday is full of cleaning their kitchen.We have taken a new frying pan that become like a 10year old pan because of that carbon from the gas stove.We wouldn't recommend this property.

    Owner/manager responds:

    We are sorry that these folk did not find the property as they expected. We have arranged for a gas plumber to look at the gas hobb. As I explained to these folk we live in a National Park where we are prone to rats and mice. I took baits around immediately and took their rubbish away for them. We also cleaned the property for them after they departed to save them cleaning on departure.

    This was no 5 star hotel BUT coming from The city that was the last thing we were looking for, it was cute, cozy and had tons of character, with a stunning view of the mountain. For the price we paid we got more than we bargained for, truly a catch this place is, will definitely be visiting again in the future
