    The house had everything you would ever need to use. The house was clean and had very comfy beds and seating. However, the massive downside was that there were no blinds in the downstairs windows, which meant the whole living space (kitchen,dining room & living room) was so hot it was like being a greenhouse/conservatory. Even though the property had many windows we could not open any of these as there were an excessive amount of flies, which within minutes would consume the whole house if a window or door were open. This made everything uncomfortably very hot. We would however love to stay again but would need to have blinds downstairs.
