I would like to show you some reviews for the house. They are from guests who stayed at the house using another website:
Luisa is a thoughtful owner, you will find a charming very well equipped, clean and comfortable house. All which you would need will be supplied: linen, internet, salt, oil, toilet paper... everything :)We spent a very pleasant week end in this house. October 2013
Luisa is very friendly and courteous. She prepared a great written description of the house and the leisure opportunities in Warsash and the region. She was still willing to answer all our questions spontaneously. The house is very lovely, with modern furniture, absolutely clean and comfortable. Nothing to complain about. We've spend a great time and hope to come back for longer to have more opportunities to discover the wonderful country. August 2013
Luisa (our host) was really nice with us when we arrived. The house is great, it is surrounded by a very quiet neighborhood and it is ideally located to visit the south of England. The nice garden is a also a joy when you need to rest after a long day of visits. We do recommend spending a day 'or 2) on the isle o Wight and a full day in the old town of Salisbury (the cathedral is a must see !) August 2013
Excellent hosts. Fantastic location for exploring the south coast of England. Superb house and garden for relaxing in. Loved it! July 2013

"Dirty and not fair"
We (family 2 small children) stayed here for a week. We changed the arrival date with a day way in advance, but Louisa took our money online and still will not talk about returning our money for the d… More
Dear guest when you made the booking you adhered to its terms and conditions as you were later explained by Holiday Lettings therefore I feel it is unfair that you are putting the blame on me for your error. During your stay you never mentioned that the house was dirty and not suitable for your family you only raised your complains after you did not receive what you erroneously believed was due back to you. After that you also threatened me several times to pass the matter to your lawyer and to sue me. It really saddens me that a person like you stayed at my house. I have been hosting guests with Holiday Lettings and airb&b for a year and had fantastic feedback from my wonderful guests. I do my best to make their experience as enjoyable and memorable as possible and so far, apart from you, people really appreciated it.
