“Beautiful house but . . .”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is a lovely vacation house, well equipped, clean and a great position overlooking the water. The house is everything that the web site says it is. We booked for only a few days and at short notice, all made easy by email and phone contact with the helpful management.
But choose your season very carefully and be sure what you want from your stay. The coast here is frequently subject to fog and low cloud even at the height of summer and on the finest day, so be prepared to only catch a glimpse of the sea and the sun.
And then there are the insects. Again choose your season with care. The grass around the property is well cut but the narrow path down to the water is carved through the undergrowth and is a haven for ticks. And mosquitos abound, even the dash to the car is a hazardous affair.
On a bright winter's day this property is probably idyllic, in mid summer the house was a refuge with the view curtailed by a blanket of low cloud. We were happy to stay mainly indoors but others might be less so.
Very hard to rate this property, one visitor might think it terrible while the next week it might be excellent - hence our rating of average. Think before you book.

“Beautiful Inside, with great views but garden infested by mosquitoes”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This is a truly beautiful spot and the house itself is fantastic. We really enjoyed the views from the cottage but were not able to utilise the garden due to the swarms of mosquitoes present. Even getting into the car was a major operation.

Luckily, by the house was the only place we experienced this number of mosquitoes with the beaches and towns around being lovely places. Without this I think it would have been a nice place for a quiet vacation, but unfortunately we were glad to be leaving.

I would have rated this as average to very good, as I know that the mosquito numbers in the area are high this year due to wet spring and a low bat population. However other holiday makers we spoke to at the time did not experience anything like this at their properties. I rated 'poor' as we were lead to believe that the problem was not known, even though we have since seen that the issue was reported on this site in June and a reply left by the management in early July (before our trip). This has left us with a bad taste in our mouth for the overall experience. I hope no others have to put up with this and a solution to this problem can be found.

Dear John,

I am really sorry that that your vacation was spoiled by mosquitoes. I did receive a review in mid July (2 weeks before your stay) from a guest who stayed in early June commenting on the mosquitoes, but since the mosquito population changes every day and the weather was drying up, I thought that they were dying off and would not be a problem for future guests. Had I know/thought otherwise I would most certainly have mentioned something to you.

I will be discussing this issue with the homeowner to see if there is anything we can do to minimize the mosquito population. They breed in standing water, so we will be reviewing the landscaping to make sure that there are no obvious breeding grounds.

I am sorry that your week at the guest house was not perfect. I am pleased that you were able to enjoy the beautiful beaches, and picturesque towns in the area.

Sincerely,
Helen

I am pleased that you enjoyed yourself at Rising Sun Guest House. We had a very wet spring this year, so the mosquitoes and ticks were more abundant than normal. I am glad that they did not spoil your vacation.
All the best,
Helen
