The house owners are very friendly and always helpfull. The kitchen has been recently upgrade, but the house can get cold and not sealed. Otherwise all was in order.
Response from Owner
Thankyou for your feedback. Yes there is a draft under the back door that we will attend to. There is a new Heatpump that keeps the house warm if used
Moe Alatipi
Overall a positive experience. The beds were comfy, house was clean and access to Netflix was a nice touch. The wifi and cell coverage can be a bit fickle but that's more to do with the overall area than the house itself. Only downside was not being able to have visitors over. We would've liked to have invited friends over but that's against the house rules. This would've made it feel like a home away from home.
