The information posted on Airbnb says the following about this cottage:
We welcome you to hear the sound of the ocean when you wake & when you sleep. Live on the rocks, next to the ocean! Luxury apartment. Full kitchen, lounge, 2 bedrooms, outside area, sea views, amazing sunsets.
The description doesn’t mention that the property next door is being built and guests will wake up to workers shouting at each other, saws cutting wood, drilling – no ocean sounds. Guests can’t sit outside during the day as there are over 10 workers watching your every move! I called Rory on day one and he assured me that he would talk to the foreman and workers wouldn’t be there on the public holiday. He also said workers would stay at the back of the house. This wasn’t the case and even on the public holiday the workers were there and worked daily in the front of the house.!
The views and sunsets are incredible. This is the best thing about this apartment. If you are looking for luxury, as the posting says – you will be disappointed. This apartment is very basic, definitely not Luxury – It needs a lot of work. Broken tiles on the floor, filthy door mats, you are greeted in the kitchen with a very old and worn ironing board and a tiny trash can. The toilet and shower area don’t have a functioning door and the shower is dirty and needs updating. The yard looked like it hadn’t been done in quite some time and it was difficult to see the ocean as it’s so overgrown. 2 very friendly dogs live upstairs and you have to navigate the poop in the yard until it is picked up. We have traveled a lot and are happy to have basic accommodation if this is what we choose. We chose and paid for luxury and this definitely wasn’t luxury!
