What a disappointment when we arrived their on Thursday, 1 February 2018 !!

I realise that the rent is not that high, but the reality is that the place was not clean and even never properly cleaned during our stay. We found our bedding dirty and smelling – I think the bedding was not even removed from the previous visitors….

The air conditioners working condition is a joke – "useless" is a good description.

The bathroom carpets was not clean when we arrived and was never replaced or cleaned during our stay…

The fridge was dirty and smelling….

The stove has missing knobs which makes it very difficult to turn on and/or off….

The fire place was never cleaned until we ask them to clean it – even when we arrived it was not cleaned?

Big, big, big cockroaches 

Mosquito nets not properly covering the beds…(backsides missing)
