At best I would describe this accommodation as ‘adequate,’ with the host tolerating rather than engaging the guest.
Here are some of the things I didn’t like or found inadequate: the house was at most times very dark. Despite having LED light bulbs throughout the house they were rarely used. I am all for cutting down on energy use but this was taking it too far.
There was a plastic cover on the bed, very uncomfortable.
In the house rules it said to ‘clear-up bathroom after use’ but the bathroom was not particularly clean with hair in and around the sink area.
Mandy did not give me a key for the house. This, she said, was unnecessary as there will always be someone in. Thankfully there was, as I returned at early evening; similar time each night.
On the morning that I was due to leave Mandy felt the need to make loud noises from around 7am such as banging doors etc. She then knocked on my door & advised me that I have to leave before 9am as this is one of the ‘house rules,’ this is not a house rule before I left or after coming home.
There was only long life milk to have on the last day as she hadn’t bothered to buy any fresh. I only asked for 2 things for breakfast, muesli and cornflakes, and one of these ran out on the last day.
One day when leaving my bedroom the burglar alarm went off and I had to endure the ear-piercing noise for 10 minutes or more; I got no apology. It had been set even though I was in the house. Mandy’s diligence with security verges on the irrational.
Discrepancies: I would not call it a ‘short walk’ to beach, more like 10 km. There were two teenagers not one. There was no bedside lamp.
Positives: She did offer me a meal on my first night but it was never made clear if this was going to happen again or whether I should pay extra for it. I ate this on my own as she didn’t even bother sitting at table to eat hers. She was not unfriendly, just distant & vague.
Overview: careless, stark, unclear rules.
