Not a great rental
I’m sorry to have to give a poor review for this rental. We have stayed in many vacation rentals and have never been disappointed. Upon arrival we found a steep, poorly maintained stone walkway to the house. A shaky pipe railing was the only hand grip for going up the stairs. Our first impression on entering the cottage was … it’s ok, but on closer inspection, it was not. Very dark, not even enough light to read by. There was a heavy wood smoke smell that permeated the entire premise. Better that previous guests should be asked not to use the fireplace in the warm summer weather. The kitchen is barely usable. A poor assortment of usable pots and pans made making simple meals a chore. The counter top eating bar with bar stools looks good, but is set so high that a normal sized person finds that his chin rests next to the cereal bowl or plate, making it impossible to have a meal there. Ok, so hold your plate in your lap. The bedding is something else. The first night we attempted to sleep in the master bedroom. The sheets were so thin that one of our feet got caught in a tear in the sheet. (guess the house cleaner didn’t notice when she cleaned for guests). Took off the sheets when we moved into the second bedroom. Sheets off revealed an icky stained mattress cover. Ugh! 2nd bedroom okay. One bathroom was fine, but the other with the shower was unappealing. Maybe “shabby chic” is the word for it, but it was really a paint splattered mess. All in all, not a good experience. We won’t be back. ps: wrote to the owner .. never received a response
