“We were very disappointed because after 3 wonderful cottages in the summer of 2018 the expectations were not met which were caused by the description and the photos of the house.”
Calculated on the possible sum of 8 guests there is a poor selection of kitchen equipment and the toaster is not really in good condition, just like the fridge, a coffee machine is not available. As described from Faye and Tommy Murphy the showers were still very dirty and showed mold in the corners and the closing mechanisms. The kitchen oven is still so dirty inside that we couldn't use it. There were also no books or games available as advertised. We bought 6 wine glasses for completion.
The oil central heating has no electronic control, only hot or cold, and the air bubbles in the pipes made terrible noise and little warm, especially in the upper bedrooms. The costs of "reading" are enormous. They wanted more than 20% additional fees, calculated on the rental cost, only after negotiations these were then reduced to 15%. That means 1214 Euro for 2 weeks and additional 180 Euro for oil and electricity. Compared to a current heating oil price of 0.70 cents / liter, this is completely overdrawn. It is a must to represent this in the house description by numbers, if we had known this in advance we wouldn’t have booked this house. The house itself is beautiful but requires much more maintenance and replacement of some old electrical appliances to meet expectations, especially regarding to this price level.
