Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Rippa Rits was just great. It had everything we needed and more. A cozy clean and comfortable home that allowed us to have an affordable holiday with our children aged between 11 and 13. Rita (the owner) was just awesome!! She was very accommodating and made us feel completely welcome. The location was perfect for what we needed. We

will definitely stay again.

Lack of privacy

  • 3 of 5

Uncomfortable having the landlord staying next door and been nosy,. distracting and taking up too much time of tenants.

Owner's Response: Sorry to be of concern to a tenant who did not pay the final payment until going out the door on departure, due to a belief that bank fees were not her responsibility; were my cost as she had paid her costs in Malaysia. Just a small amount really in the whole scheme of things; when i offered to go halves in the bank charges. By rights of the rules of receiving the key, no entry should have been allowed until payment was made.
