“Could be so great, but...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

We rented a cottage for a week during the summer. Great pool, beach... but, oh my, this cottage stunk, you know this musty smell of mold? Furniture, carpet were ancient, drab and looked dirty. Even that I could overlook, but the smell, it suffocates you at the doorstep, make you hesitate. But it's paid for, nowhere to go and there is the beach and the pool. After a while inside the cottage, you almost get used to it, but if you go out for a minute, then it's all over again. The most important thing: don't get your things out of the suitcase and keep it closed. I got to do at least 2 laundries to get the smell out of my clothes (those in my unzipped suitcase too). Some people with respiratory problems could get very sick in the place like that.
Maybe other cottages were better and we just got unlucky but are you willing to take the risk?

Stayed July 2012, traveled with family
