très belle maison, mais les différents sites internet qui prennent leurs "frais"... très désagréable

  • 3 of 5

La maison est très belle, bien située dans le village et il y a de l'espace pour toute la famille. Les points forts sont la salle de lavage et le beau terrain. Quelques détails sont à améliorer : le lave-vaisselle coule, il manque de bonnes poêles, l'air climatisé ne monte pas en haut vers les chambres, un des lits est trèèès mou... On a, par contre, eu une réponse rapidement lorsque l'on a posé des questions aux gens qui s'occupaient de l'entretien.

Ce qui nous a dérangé le plus de cette location: les différents sites internet... home away, vrbo, county Holiday home, et j'en passe... Tout le monde prend ses "frais" et certains deux fois, donc soyez vigilant sur votre carte de crédit, surtout si les proprio ne répondent pas en 24h. Ils ont fait des erreurs dans nos dates de réservation et ils se renvoient la balle. Bref, je reviendrai à Picton mais peut-être avec airbnb?

spacious and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The property is accurate as described and the location is ideal; an easy drive to wineries and beaches. There is also the advantage of having restaurants within walking distance; Portobellos is especially close and quite good though I would recommend making a reservation.

The provided park pass is a lovely added touch.

The property is very clean and well maintained and we would not hesitate to recommend Owen House to friends and family.

I would suggest providing sheets (we only used the Master bedroom) of a little higher quality. Also, the Picton area can get quite hot and the master bedroom does not seem to be vented to the house's air conditioning and there was no fan provided; so that room became quite uncomfortable at night. I would suggest providing a fan.

Overall, it's a lovely house.
