  • Location was an very easy walk to town and beach

    Location was an very easy walk to town and beach. Other rentals are higher on the hills and make for a long walk but this bach is high enough to have a very good harbor and town view without a strenuous walk. We particularly liked the kayaks; had a lovely row in glass smooth water along the rugged coast just outside the Bach. The wifi worked perfectly. This place is a 10 for everything that we cared about. If we go back to Russell, we will stay here for sure, . .no need to look elsewhere.

    Despite the great location and view, MarlinMaison was dank, uncomfortable and didn't feel clean. We found slimy food residue on dishes and litter, beer lids + broken bottle on the deck. It was advertised as a 4 bedrooms but was only 3. The TV and DVD didn't work. The drawers/cupboards were too cluttered and musty to use. We ran out of toilet paper and there was insufficient linen - no flannels, only 1 dishcloth + 1 hand towel, The master bed sheets had several small rips. Disappointing.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Marlin has 4 bedrooms, 2 adults in master bedroom & one 13yr in queen size room & 2 children sharing the twin room & the 4th room under the house, your family didn’t need that room which normally for larger groups. New TV was bought beginning of 2018. The problem is that it has been raining in Russell for the last 3 week. We supply basket of toilet paper when this run out the client buys what they need. Spare towels/linen in cupboard. (Limited character length)

  • House was spotless on arrival

    House was spotless on arrival. Was ideally set up with children downstairs in their own room. Plenty of bunkbeds. Well stocked. Traditional house with tradition features, gorgeous views, easy walk to village. Can recommend Marlin and Russell, great choices of cafes and restaurants, easy access to walk activities and kids loved wharf jumping, taking the house kayaks out and swimming in long beach.
