We had been driven out by bats at a booked location (no connection to this owner) and managed to get this fixed up at the last minute. This saved us having to end our holiday in Scotland. This is an ultra-clean bungalow, easily accessed 5 miles from Hawick. The owner was fantastic getting us sorted out and met us at the property.
The service is professional and I'd give the following review on the detail. The property let is the right part of the building in the main photo. Everything is beautifully clean. We had some minor issues, which I am sure have been repaired. All the carpets are white, which requires extra care in removing outside footwear.
We felt that the kitchen pans and utensils were too decorative and small for proper evening cooking for accommodation which can provide for 10. The internet is adequate for slow basic browsing only. There is no mobile phone connection, which for us was a plus.
The curtains in the bedrooms are not black-out type.
There is an additional £100 deposit against utilities for the week, refundable. In July we used up 80% of this amount, despite being out every day.
Hand over was easy.
Overall, 5 stars, as the owner is exceptionally professional and helpful.
We rented the house for a week for my family.
The house is fantastic and finished to a high standard. It is also in a beautiful location and exactly what you need if looking for some R&R.
The host is nearby if anything is a miss and was very welcoming and accommodating. My family were actually quite sad to leave after the week so a true sign that they really enjoyed their stay.
Internet was a bit temperamental and no mobile phone reception but that an issue with the surrounding area so can't put the house at fault for that plus I think my family enjoyed a week without any calls!
All round top marks!
