    “We all loved the stay in this beautiful house with a large garden and thoroughly enjoyed the surroundings We do appreciate it is a huge house to clean and maintain cleanliness, however a better inspection is needed before letting it out to your next guests May we also mention to invest in cooking utensils especially new nonstick frying and wok pans?”

    Also a storage of bathing/hand/ kitchen towels would add to the comfort Thank you Yours sincerely Alan and Lia Moth The Netherlands
