“Fantastic property..................... But!!”

My husband and I booked this property as a last minute getaway for Easter, it is a fabulous house, very modern, very clean & comfortable with all the amenities you could wish for except wifi, and lovely views to the rear, also only a 10 minute walk to the stunning beach at Black rock sands. However, there is a female "caretaker" mentioning no names, whom I must say was very helpful on arrival however, she literally watches the house on behalf of the owner, plus her own house overlooks from a short distance into the garden and into conservatory at the rear of the rental property. I have to say she certainly liked to keep an eye on the place..and blatent about it, ie: seperating her vertical blinds to look over, slowing down in her car to look into the property as she drove past etc, I appreciate she's looking after the house, but I felt it was an invasion of privacy and noticed that a few others who had rented this property previously had written similar things regarding being watched in the visitors book.. It made me feel as an adult that I wasn't trusted and "Big Brother" was watching me... It's a shame really, as she is the only reason I would not go back to this property, Maybe it's because I'm a very private person and felt I should have been able to enjoy my 4 night stay especially with the cost of the rental due to it being Easter, but I couldn't relax knowing I was being watched at her every opportunity. I would highly recommend the property if you can cope with the "Caretaker's" eyes.. I did leave a review to this effect on Sykes Cottages website when it was they requested I write a review, however, it has never been added to their online reviews page, or indeed have any similar reviews from the others who clearly felt they were being watched too. If so, I would have obviously chosen a different property. This is a fantastic house, I'm not writing all this to be nasty, it's just to be honest and let others know this is likely to happen to you too......It's your choice, just not the kind of thing I expected whilst renting a holiday home.

“Lovely place - a real home from home”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Super house. Really clean and light.
Favourite part is the large downstairs lounge & diner leading through to a lovely light and warm conservatory.
Very quiet estate, about 10-15 mins walk from beaches.
Really enjoyed our stay. Family with 2 kids (aged 11 and 14).
We did Llama Trekking, Pony Trekking, Hi-wire Zip flying (zip world) as well as lots of beach time.

Liked best: Large downstairs lounge & diner leading through to a lovely light and warm conservatory.
Liked least: Towels not provided (but we were told) and this is a really minor suggestion in an otherwise top-notch rental.
