Its location is wonderful, bowled over by the views and aspect. However there are some less than satisfactory features I would like to draw your attention to.
The first issue was with keys. On our first night, we had to call for help when we closed the connecting door between the lounge room and the hallway. It locked and left us unable to get to the ensuite bedroom as the set of keys which originally let us into that part of the house were left on the hall table after having locked the outer door. Fortunately you were able to contact Linda, who was able to come with her master key. We kept wondering why there were two different sets of keys and how it was even possible to lock an inner door merely by closing it. If it is considered necessary, then adequate warning notices should be posted for unsuspecting guests like us.

We had to throw out french beans and eggs which had become unusable. Previous tenants?
Microwave would not work where it was located on arrival (on the bench close to the dining table). Neither power point there would work. We moved the microwave to the other side of the kitchen (near the kettle and toaster) and then it worked OK on those power points.
Power points. They all need testing. As well as the difficulty with the microwave, at least one in one of the bedrooms appeared to be working OK but when the occupant checked her iPhone in the morning it had not charged at all. We would like to stay again in the spring but would ho
