“On the whole the house was fine, it was a relatively last minute booking so choice was limited.”
In my opinion the house needs money spent on it, smartening it up, updating the furniture etc. For the money paid, i would expect more.
As a house for 6 I was disappointed to only have 2 teaspoons! And the washing airer is ridiculously small - for a surfing location, it is impossibly to dry wetsuits & swimmers etc with the tiny one offered. The garden bench needs repair too.
The shower in the main bathroom is a joke - zero pressure or water flow. Anyone with longish hair would find it impossible to wash. Really an electric shower needs to be installed.
On the whole, I think a maintenance team need a couple of days in there to make small repairs which would make a huge difference. No one wants to see cupboards with broken handles, have leaking shower seals, toilet handles that are loose, bent curtain poles etc...
I think for most its the small things they notice and its for that reason i mark the house down... It is what I would call OK and suited the purpose for a last minute getaway but didn't blow me away!
The scones & cream on arrival was a nice touch though.
