It wasn't clean. Dirt was cover with tidiness

It was a tidy place but it wasn't clean. I had the feeling when I arrived and by Sunday (checkout date) I was cover on bites. I complained to the owner and she was very apologetic. She did said will refund my stay but she did not as yet. By Tuesday I went to the GP to get check with bites. And find out what I did get was Scabies. So definitely the bedding wasn't change from the previous person staying there. I got treated and just yesterday I got confirmation is all gone. It took me a week to recover, have to change bedding, rooms in my own house and had to isolate myself to prevent to spread it around. Also, I did book for my daughter and myself. My girls is a years old, and the owner told me the next day, it was not a place for little kids. So why when you do the booking the accept for me to bring her.

Pros: Location. The pictures shown on your website are not representation of the place. It doesn't give you the idea of a lovely place.

Cons: Will change the pictures online, so they attract the right consumers.

Location: The location nice, the activities great.
