    The contact number online and from sykes wasn't that of the actual owner, it was the cleaners. The owners wouldn't dial through. I wandered around the place trying to find someone to help. Found the cleaner of who looked pretty clueless. She said with a shrug "is there not a guest book?" Of which there wasn't. After searching high and low for a guest book, we found a tiny scrap piece of paper underneath the sofa with a scribble of a wifi password and that was it. During our stay we also found a wasps nest above our front door which prevented us from opening our front door and window during our stay. We couldn't sit out tide due to thus as there was loads coming and going. We sourced some fly and wasp killer and tried to deal with this ourselves. When complained we were told someone would be out to fix this issue yet we heard nothing back. Considering the price paid for a 3 night stay, not best pleased with lack of info, contact and assistance.
