Ruined by a unrealistic owner
This was a lovely cottage. Clean, spacious and well situated to explore. We had a great time here. Our holiday was ruined when on return the owner sent us an email to say that we would not get our full deposit back. We were told that we had not cleaned it well enough on departure. They complained about fingerprints on the tv (we had toddlers with us) and some sand on the floor which they swept into a little pile and took a photo of. They accused us of marking the dining chairs, marks on cushions and a wall - none of which happened and of course they weren?t able to provide photographic proof of any of this. When we objected the owner sent us an email saying ?perhaps you can?t read Scottish? (we are English) and ?perhaps you think you are above cleaning?. Sykes told him he should refund our money. He refused . This mean character ruined a holiday which was taken for a child who is in foster care. This so called ?cleaning bond? is clearly an extra little money spinner for the owner. So if you want a holiday where it is you who is expected to clean and prepare the property ready for the next occupants- this is for you. Also not suitable for small children as owner won?t allow you to move anything (even if it?s to protect the object or your child). Steep steps at rear of property are unsafe for children and owner states he expects you to hose down your child using outdoor hose if you dare go to a beach. A lovely holiday home, if only it were owned by someone else.
