Well back in ice cold Denmark I guess I'd better give a small review of the house.
It's a fairly large house, nicely aired by the wind. We all, paricularly the girls (3 and 11) enjoyed the swimming pool.
With respect too space it was quite a luxury, as we were only 2 adults and 2 children there. The furniture, and mayby particularly the kitchen however is somewhat worn and run down. The fridge is rather old and dripping inside to the extent that even though they had set a square plastic container inside to catch the drops, we had some things soaked.
There's everything for your basic needs, but it's definitely not new or flashy!
Twice during our stay we told the housemaid, who comes in everyday (except sunday) at about 9.30, to take the day off, as we didn't need cleaning that day. Even so - on the days she came in, we had the impression that she sat down and just waited for us to leave. On top of that, when asked how long we'd like to stay in the house on our last day, and we said 7pm, it was like her whole body sagged by the thought of having to come in at such a late time. It was right then and there we decided to take back home the present we had brought from Denmark to give her. So sorry about that.
Obviously she can't make friends with every family coming and staying there for 1 or 2 weeks, but frankly - a little friendliness and servicemindedness doesn't hurt.
Bottom line - we enjoyed our stay very much and the house is very well situated for walking to either Store Bay (7-8 min) or Pigeon Point (15-20 min).
Mossies: :twisted: For a whole week - we were blessfully unharmed, but then in the night between saturday and sunday, they decided to hit us. We were scratcing the whole last week. Take those little bastards seriously for your own sake.
I wouldn't hesitate to be in Caricey Cottage again at some other time, provided the price was right. The 200-250 US they ask on the homepage I can't see anyone paying.
And by the way - the redecorating Sharon mentioned is simply, that the house was painted on the outside - look quite good.
All for now. I'm quite open for questions if anyone has any.
All the best
