I enjoyed my stay, it was awesome!

  • 4 of 5

The bungalow was very clean, well kept and homely. It’s a quiet and peaceful there. A beautiful and safe neighborhood. The garden is has beautiful flowers and I find the backyard very relaxing. It is comfortable, as you walk in you’ll right at home. Everyone was polite. I will definitely stay there for my next vacation! Thanks Carl and Mr. Smith!

The house was beautiful the renters however were nasty.

  • 3 of 5

The house was beautiful although a bit dusty where u can tell it hasn’t been properly cleaned in a while. But that was an easy fix not much off the issue. The guy who met us at the house however was extremely rude. I’m assuming it was the owners father. We paid for an extra day unknowingly they refused to compensate which was fine. As it was a mistake on our end. But given the fact we had paid for an extra day we were still RUSHED out at 12pm when we still had the following day. And our flight left at 6pm. We did last minute errands before take off the guy entered the home with children (oldest being a 17 year old female) yelling at her and being extremely nasty. Theee was no reason to confront kids. Scaring them to death. And if that wasn’t bad enough he showed up two days early trying to put us out because he mixed up his days. I had to pull out confirmation proving that we paid in order to get him to leave. Which he didn’t do immediately he still sat and complained while making phone calls to who I assume was his son. It sucks because the house was great and I actually planned rebooking for next visit but with the rudeness that would never happen. If you’re looking for a beautiful place to stay with horrible service this is the place to stay.

Owner's Response: 1. My housekeeper cleans the property after each rental. My property manager visits the bungalow at least two hours before the expected arrival of each guest to specifically check the property and dust the property if necessary. 2. I am unsure why you have mentioned your booking mistake as I lost the opportunity to let the bungalow for this extra night. In fact when you arrived at the bungalow you initially refused to pay the refundable damage deposit based on this extra night argument. 3. Our rental agreement clearly states our check in and Check out times. Therefore, guests are aware when they book the bungalow the expected check-out time. 4. My property manager refutes your account when he entered the bungalow. I am interested in the fact that children were staying at the bungalow when your booking DID NOT include any children. Where did these children come from! 5. What is the issue you are raising here as you stayed at the bungalow until the end of your revised stay? 6. Previous guest reviews have noted my property manager’s helpfulness and willingness to “go the extra mile” to accommodate guests. 7. It is noteworthy that this is an anonymous review! Every other Guest reviewing their stay at my bungalow has been willing to provide their name. We will always welcome and response to genuine and constructive issues raised by our guests as we strive to continually improve our guests' experience at our bungalows.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We found the house very easy of the excellent directions we got from the owner.

The house was in a gated community with 24 hour security guard. The house had security fence, gates, doors and windows. There was a driveway for the car behind security. You felt very safe. It had a lovely garden, where we watched butterflies amongst all the flowers. It was very quiet day and night. We appreciated all the channels on the television and the wifi. It was clean. I also was pleased with the returned damage deposit. The property manager was very helpful.

I certainly would recommend this place and would stay there again.
