This house is great and the lake view and handy location is awesome. However a few minor maintenance and cleaning issues let it down a bit. The bbq was filthy (again this year) and the house needs a really good spring clean (loads of dead flies and dust under furniture etc). However, we loved staying there and would stay again - thanks.

We stayed at this place over the weekend to go snowboarding. Had to literally drive past cows and over their droppings to get to the house. Supermarkets are not in close vicinity but had to make trips out a few times to buy dish washing liquids and drinking water, etc. if you’re intending to stay here, please pack appropriate cleaning tools and pesticides/ insecticides. The boys had to remove some nasty crawlies. Also got charged a little over a half of a day’s cost despite leaving it in similar condition to how we found it. Future guests

Just pre-purchase cleaning - if possible, unless your profession is in the cleaning sector. Regardless of the condition you’ve found it in and maintained the same by wiping down the place with what’s available (i.e. toilet paper, squeegee for shower cubicle and kitchen paper towels), money is withdrawn out from your card the day after departure. So for the peace of mind and to save your effort, just prepay for cleaning. I got charged for the small chip of woodpiece near the fireplace too. Fireplace was good to have, didn’t get to use the outdoor table due to the weather.

We loved our stay and the property is great. It is located just up the hill from the beach but feels like you are really in the country, which was lovely. The garden is huge and was perfect for after dinner cricket with the kids and the outdoor fire made for awesome marshmallow toasting! There were some minor maintenance and cleaning issues which have now been relayed to the owner and manager so I'm sure these will be fixed. But otherwise, we would recommend this property - a great family holiday spot!
