Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in September 2017

The apartment was in the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday. It was clean and comfortable and had everything I needed. Rosemary and Emma are perfect hosts. They were available immediately for questions or advice on the area. The train station is very close by so getting around was fun and easy. The trail to Mussenden/Demesne was right at the...

I too was disappointed at both the lack of maintenance and the lack of thought put into this rental, for what could be a very pleasant apartment. What can it take to replace a blown light bulb or to oil a sticking door or to fix a noisy loo? And what can it take to fix a hook by the...

Management response:

This is a duplicate of the previous review. I feel it is a shame that both you and your wife felt the need to lower our overall rating and potentially ruin our chances of renting to others, with separate reviews of the same holiday, especially when you both said the same things. It saddens me greatly, and the fact you...

Window in main bedroom doesn't open, the en-suite shower leaks, the en-suite toilet takes ages to fill, and the furniture in both rooms smells damp and musty through lack of air circulation. The small twin bedroom is only really a single bedroom. The toilet in the main bathroom emits a siren like noise for minutes after being flushed. Bearings have...

Management response:

It is a shame you didn't contact us during your 8 day stay to have any issues remedied. Which door does not close? The main bedroom patio door doesn't slide very freely because of the salty air and just needs a little bit of oil. We are in the process of addressing the ventilation. How often in succession does one...
