      Nice but needs some TLC

      4 of 5
      Much of this cottage was as described: the supplies were excellent, kitchen was adequately equipped, the bed was comfortable, the verandah was terrific, the location was excellent, a beautiful beach was right outside the fence, the water was clear blue and there was a good swimming area. However, the cottage needed some TLC. The shower control was bizarre, you could never tell if it was going to be hot or cold, strong stream or weak drizzle. You could never tell if turning it right or left was going to make it hotter or colder. We brought it to the agent's attention and a plumber came but it was going to be a major three day repair job. No one's fault but just an example of the needed work. A loss of water was quickly remedied, on a weekend evening, though when the water was restored is was with very low pressure. That was improved over the next few days. The screens were torn in several places and/or separating from the frames; a fan pull had been broken off the fan over the bed (a tall person could reach the remaining piece; a shorter person had to climb onto the bed.) Otherwise the fans were excellent. Again brought to the agent's attention but not repaired while we were there. Finally we found the futon rather uncomfortable just for sitting on; there were two mattresses on it and the top one tended to slip down over the front edge. It was heavy and difficult to shift it back up into position. We did not sleep on it so cannot comment about that. For a longer stay, be aware that there are no laundry facilities on the premises. Other arrangements can be made. Also the small, but well functioning, 'fridge means frequent shopping trips. This was not a serious problem as there is a reasonably good grocery store just a few minutes walk away. There are neighbours very nearby, closer than the other units on the property, which may not be evident from the photos. One was aware of their coming and going but it was not an annoyance. This is a lovely place. We enjoyed our month-long stay. We hope it will receive the attention it needs to warrant a more fully positive review.
