I have traveled the world and was delighted to find such upscale accommodations for such a reasonable price. Neil and Dee are classy pros who do their best despite having to deal with less than stellar guests. During our visit, there was a couple who couldn't understand why there was no television viewing in the bedrooms and treated Neil and Dee like 19th century chamber maids. Apparently other guests in the past have had the nerve to "borrow" items from this beautiful home, never to be seen again. Whoever the review person is who claims Neil and Dee are rude was probably gently asked to stop trying to party like they were at a No Tell Motel.
The reviewer complained because the proprietor kept cleaning up their cheap party favor glasses and had respect for their neighbors by curtailing loud music? Said the hosts stopped people from viewing a cake cutting????? Whatever.
I am so grateful to find a treasured environment like this! Thank you Neil and Dee for continuing to provide this exquisite respite despite an occasional guest who just should be staying somewhere else.
We are booking again for Valentine's Day. After that I hope to be considered a friend to this nice couple and won't be posting any more reviews. My opinion won't be changing. I know good value when I see it.
