I arrived with my partner and could not believe this was the same place as advertised. I have never been so upset or disappointed in using and trusting trip advisor before. Even now as I write this I wonder if I was at the same accommodation as everyone else as I just don't recognise the majority of photos posted, compare them with mine! The accommodation was scruffy and tired and certainly way below the standard I would have expected, I have stayed in many backpackers , camp sites, and budget accommodation over the years so please don't think I am whingeing and expected three star accommodation. The self catering accommodation comprised a sitting room, a kitchen, 2 bedrooms of which we rented one and a communal shower room. the wifi did not work. there was no hot water connected to the bathroom sink, the loo did not flush, there were holes in the shower room walls which had been patched up and stuffed with plastic bags. there was a curtain rail suspended by a chain over the shower minus a shower curtain. the electric shower only managed to produce tepid water.
the bedroom was a mish mash of badly painted walls in the most unappealing shade of dirty citron,cream,and a dull red painted door, white painted wardrobes which had seen better days and were full of dents and chips and supplied with one hangar. there was a border of wallpaper attached to 2 walls at floor level badly applied and peeling away. a shelf covered in the same wallpaper with a bombay sapphire gin bottle used as a vase to contain the fake flowers. the sitting room was also an interior designers worst nightmare walls of dark wood, red paint, light wood complimented by dark brown outdoor plastic furniture with fabric draped over the seats and coffee table. the kitchen was poor the base cupboards were just used to hide the damp and evil smelling walls. there were bare light bulbs dangling from the ceilings throughout. there was a building site outside the bedroom window and the place was located in the middle of nowhere quite a distance from the main road with a steep hill to climb; if you don't have a car you will be quite isolated. On the journey to and from the airport I did not see one restaurant or cafe just a handful of small scruffy shops.
For me this has been an expensive and disastrous experience/mistake
We arrived late evening on 25th november 2016 and I left early morning on 26th november 2016 and returned to my beautiful clean and comfortable house in South Africa.
