  • The house is not well maintained, it was dusty and unclean

    The house is not well maintained, it was dusty and unclean. The area attached to the kitchen (shower/toilet and laundry area) was dotted with white paint and didn't look like it always cleaned since some time. Lounge area and bedrooms are maintained very well though. The reason we booked the bach was due to the photos of deck with sea view- but there was none. There was a nice sunny deck, but the only view it had was that of the tress ad bushes around. The photos are misleading. Stayed Feb 2018

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thank you for your feedback... I will let my cleaner know. I have looked at the photos and there are no photos attached from deck with sea views. It is even written in the text that there are no sea views from the cottage. There is sea views if you want to walk up the hill. The view photos were taken while I was walking round our 40 hectares. I disagree that the photos are misleading and each photo has attached text and ad also states that it is surrounded by bush and farmland.
