The guest's took advantage of our current discount for bookings made within two weeks of arrival and made their booking the day before arrival. They were model guest's and left the Gite and grounds as they found them, very clean and tidy. The flies were a nuisance that week for us and many of our local friends as well and we believe this unusual occurrence was linked with the fact that we had had a major wind storm (Tornado) a few days prior with 100MPH winds. The unusual phenomenon eased off a day or so after the guest's left and we assure future guest's that this is not a normal feature of the property. The comments about the BBQ and the micro wave have been taken on board and will be actioned for future guest’s. We would welcome these guest’s back any time.
