I would have given this property 5 stars, but we had a few difficulties: the faucet in the guest bathroom was very loose and we were afraid it might fall apart while using it, the washing machine had a problem with the seal on the door and flooded the front hallway on the second load of laundry (we had been traveling for 2 weeks by the time we arrived at this property, so having use of the washing machine would have been nice), it was very hot in the apartment and we had to go buy our own fans because there were none available for us to use, and I felt there would have been a notebook within clear instructions on how to operate everything in the apartment - not just laminated signs posted everywhere telling us how much we will be fined if we don’t was up or if we don’t take the rubbishy out. Also, the folks at Rethink Living are not easily reachable and do not quickly respond to texts, calls or emails if there are issues.
The Bird sisters cottage has been recently renovated in a modern style with floorboards and a new full kitchen. It is as shown in the photos. We stayed in late June but the cottage stayed nice and cool. It was easy to open the modern windows in the evening to get a lovely breeze. The brand new kitchen is fantastic and you have everything you need, in logical places.
The cottage is in a very quiet street but close to the train station (5 mins walk) and the beach (10 mins walk). The car space is very handy. Renny was very helpful throughout our visit and everything was processed efficiently.
