    “Good house design for a family party and well-located for visiting the Dingle peninsular.”

    Caroline was very helpful in providing a high chair and cafetiere and for keeping in touch to remedy shortcomings. However many issues to be addressed by the owner - see below: House Book - the property would greatly benefit from having a house book as a guide to appliances, heating and general local amenities etc Fridge - broken lower shelf and seal.

    Caroline was very helpful in providing a high chair and cafetiere and for keeping in touch to remedy shortcomings. However many issues to be addressed by the owner - see below: House Book - the property would greatly benefit from having a house book as a guide to appliances, heating and general local amenities etc Fridge - broken lower shelf and seal. Had not been cleaned by owner staying previous week. It is also far too small for the house capacity which should be a consideration on replacement. TV - replaced on arrival but not able to be tuned. Fortunately we had no use for it given good weather Table Football - no ball and players broken so unusable. Appears to have been in that state for some time so why advertise it as a feature. Glasses - Not enough to make up a set of 6 of the same type Showers - 2 over baths should have a shower curtain/screen Towels - Ideally should be bath-sized Iron - leaks badly Oven Door - loose Keys - couldn't open patio doors. Set of 3 keys in basket did not work on any doors. Lights - some had blown. Fireplace - not set and no wood for first fire. Again not an issue for us but don't advertise it if it's not provided. Overall a pleasant property but above maintenance issues left poor impression to justify rental. NB Cleaniliness rating would have been better but for the state of the fridge on arrival.
