We spent three nice days with my wife and our little boy in Jacinthe’s cottage. However, there were some deficiencies that we think we need to share in order to let the owner improve this points for the next time.
One of the reasons why we selected this house was the outdoor pool. When we arrived we found that it wasn`t heated and the water was so cold, meaning non ready to be used. We asked Jacinta if she could start the heating process since we wanted to use the swimming pool. She kindly accepted and let us know that this process takes some time (most probably will finish late at the afternoon she said.). During the day we had a fantastic time on the deck looking forward for tomorrow for having a good time on the swimming pool. Well, at next day, we were ready for enjoying the pool when suddenly found that at the same time the heating process was taking place, she was also adding cold water because the pool wasn’t full enough, as the owner explained. If so, again, the water was a little bit cold and we couldn’t enjoy as expected. Unfortunately during our last day, the swimming pool had the good temperature but it was our time to leave the house. For our surprise, when we were leaving, she was having a good time on the heated swimming pool with her family.
I would advise Jacinthe if the house is posted as having functional swimming pool, this should be ready to be used, otherwise, in case for any reason is not functional, she must mention it.
Other point to mention is having some lights on the area around the Jacuzzi. It was hard for us to use it at night.
We want also to mention that we found flies on the house coming from the house foundations.
Also, be prepared for sharing the space with the owners since they live on the next house. In fact the Jacuzzi and the swimming pool is part of the same common area.
I don`t want to forget that Jacinthe offered to show the area and she was also willing to help us when needed. She was also flexible for our early check in and late check out.
