We stayed here for 2 wks last year and after staying in a different house this year we realise just how inferior this was compared to others in the Moorings. When we arrived we were annoyed to discover there was no landline. We always buy the phonecards making calls to UK very reasonable.We didn't have skype or American mobiles and with 2 sick relatives at home we had unbelievable mobile bills. The house was not clean. With hindsight we should have requested the cleaning fee back since it was dirty and I wasted time on holiday having to clean. We did take photos and still have them but anger fades with time! The pool deck was very dirty, mouldy and mossy and needed replaced and the pool was filthy. My husband wasted an afternoon of his holiday cleaning an area on the deck that we could use. Deck very small and only one really small bit gets sun. There were only 4 dining chairs although the house is advertised as sleeping 6-8 and when we complained we were given a deckchair to use at the table! The TV area although having a big Tv had extremely uncomfortable conservatory style furniture that struggled to seat 4 in total, one of which was a bed settee which was impossible to sleep on. There is a nice comfortable seating area but it had no TV! There were only 2 old sun-loungers but an abundance of old tables and patio chairs. This house could be lovely for minimum investment as the bedrooms and bathrooms were fine (though not as clean as could have been) and the kitchen was really nice and new. It needs a new bigger pool deck, some new sofas, dining chairs, an appropriate number of new sun loungers and a better cleaning service . Only then would I recommend it to anyone.
