Nice place and area to stay, Only bad point is a noisy water pump directly under the bed rooms

Owner's Response: Thank you Nick, but I do not have you listed on the booking. Sorry about the pump, I have not had anyone complain, as it is located on the end of the house. If you use any facilities during the night, of course the water will refill the container only for that short time. Was the house satisfactory for your needs and plenty of bird seed for those red/green Rosella's It must have been very good to give many stars Thank you

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. I do apologise if the place was not up to your standards. I will inform the cleaners to do better. Can you send me an email to specifically indicate the areas needed attention. With back to back bookings over the last three months, even I have trouble getting into the Cottage. I do thank you for your honesty Regards Bruce
