The property was very relaxing, comfortable and well maintained. Being away from the road meant no road noise. Plenty of room for a family to spread out. It's a 5 minute walk to a cafe. I would have no hesitation in booking this property again. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay Thank you.
Stained sheets and a very uncomfortable master bed. A bad smell under the sink, left us wanting to wash dishes before even being used as permeated through under bench. Possible wasp nest under deck. Garden felt uncared for. Calling the place a "Lodge" going a bit far. Nice touch with the veggies (home grown) in the bowl on the table and some basics in pantry handy.
Thanks Dean for your feedback. The stained sheets were a shock to me as well when I came into clean up after your visit. The under sink smell - it's bad I called the plumber. Wasp nests obliterated - I have killed so many this year. This is our country holiday home - we like to keep it country like. I am pleased you enjoyed the veggies and use of our pantry contents. I have posted back your bikini top and book that you left behind - no charge. Sorry that your stay was not as you would wish
