Great stay shame about being wrongfully charged

  • 3 of 5

This home is perfect for a large group of friends with young children or families. The layout works well, the pool area clean and over all an ideal home to spend days around without even having to get in your car. The kids were secure in the gardens and the kitchen had everything we needed. The only real shame to this stay was that when we checked out they claimed we had made a mark on a side table which no one was aware of. Furthermore the mark was then charged to us and no consideration that the cleaners or previous guests themselves may have caused it. We were 100% set on booking next year and now we are hesitating as to if we should. If you do book here I would suggest taking photographs of absolutely everything when checking in. Otherwise you may get wrongfully stung too. We wish we had taken photographs, as much of a nuisance this may have been but we are now being charged a very, hefty price. Not fair play. And such a sour taste left to such a wonderful weekend.
