“Great location pity about the condition of property”

The property needs a good clean and small things tidied up to make it competitive with similar properties. we understand the owner is not local so the appointed cleaning/servicing people need to be up to standard in our opinion they are not. There were just too many things needing attention. The worst being the carpets, which were inappropriate for the property unless everyone took there shoes off at the door. The front door and mat area was filthy. We spent a few hours cleaning said area and carpets for our own comfort and peace of mind, we even had to empty the hoover..

It is unfortunate that this review has been placed, especially with the acknowledgement of the writer that the owners are not local and cannot deal with issues personally. Please refer to the previous fantastic reviews for Lapwing.
It is beyond my control how some tenants treat and respect the property. Unfortunately, if people do not remove their muddy shoes at their own front door, they will inevitably not consider it relevant in someone else’s home. Unnecessary soiling of carpets is a constant problem with holiday lets – mine and others, and is rectified at the end of every season.
Please consider the fact that if carpets are attempted to be cleaned between bookings, at peak season there is only hours between change overs – if carpets were cleaned and still damp, more damage will be caused by walking dirty shoes/feet on damp carpets. Only so much can be done at any one time.
