Our experience at John’s property was unsurpassed. He was welcoming and very attentive without being obtrusive. The property was excellent with sweeping water views, wildlife roaming nearby. A magnificent, tranquil and beautiful setting and first rate venue and facilities. We will definitely be returning!
We didn’t get the address or John’s phone number in confirmation emails? Went to wrong “google” suggestion. Owner there very helpful and directed us on. On arrival, delighted to discover it was the same property we had stayed at 10 years ago.
Wood heater is charming and fine if you know how to run them. (Tip for guests - leave the firebox door ajar until the heater is well alight). Suggestion for John, provide a simple electric fan heater for those who don’t want, or struggle with, a wood heater.
A charming and pleasant experience. Will cheerfully return.
Brilliant, just brilliant!
Very special property with an absolutely amazing view. John made my stay even more wonderful by introducing me to local artists - see you in November!
Great potential but needs a new bed and a cleaner
We were disappointed on arrival as to the mustiness of the property. It had been clearly left locked up for a considerable period of time. As it was hot and airless in the bedroom we wanted to put the ceiling fan on but it was so covered in dust and cobwebs that my husband had to get a vacuum from the owner to clean it before we could turn it on. We then had to move the bed to prevent any remaining dust from flying around. In doing so stuffing fell out of the mattress which appeared to be a queen mattress on a double base. The whole place needed a thorough clean.
It is such a pity as the potential is enormous and the view is spectacular. The kitchen was well equipped and with a little more love and attention this accommodation could be fabulous.
The most valid part of this review was the state of the Q/S mattress (which was on a Q/S base) - it needed replacing and I have ordered a new mattress and base. My daughter, who did the final clean, realised belatedly that she had not cleaned the top of the bedroom fan. She, her husband and young son had stayed in the unit immediately preceding the guests' arrival and had no complaint of mustiness. When things get off to a bad start as with the bedroom fan and mattress, the natural tendency is to have a negative impression of the whole experience, as reflected in this review.
Lovely host - thank you John
John is a true gentleman and a marvellous host and everything we needed was there - not perfect accomodation but very comfortable and stunning views
Thanks Patrick and Rebecca for your review. I would appreciate if you could mention the 'imperfections' in the accommodation so I may be able to remedy them. Your general comment without mentioning specifics wasn't very helpful.
Great getaway in a rustic self contained mediteranian style villa.
Just what we needed for a quiet getaway. Ideal location with access to walking trails by the lake with no through traffic.
Good communication with host and topoed off with an abundance of native wildlife.
