Thank you for such a fine description of the home, gardens and region. Since your week-long visit including the ANZAC celebrations we have completely cut off and sound-proofed the staircase between the residences, replaced the existing lighting with energy-saving LED spots, and built a private wood terrace of more than 50 square meters (540 square feet) dedicated to your residence with gas barbecue, sink and rattan garden furniture! We have blocked the courtyard entrance so vehicles are no longer visible. And your sons will be sure to enjoy Netflix on the big screen! We would love having you visit again to see our improvements!

Thanks so much for taking the time to give so much helpful information to future potential guests. We do apologize for the pillow issue, normally you should have found 4 pillows in the master bedroom. We have also noted that they are not fluffy enough and we have taken steps to correct this. Thanks again for helping us improve our guest experience.

We are so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your week with us. Can’t find the words to thank you for the wonderful description of our residence for future potential guests. As far as the ease of booking goes, we are sorry that it was a lengthy and frustrating process but this is required by our booking partner and of course we have no control over it, but it serves to reassure both host and guest. Regarding the directions to property, we do appreciate your suggestion to add GPS coordinates to guest direction information, which we have updated. And we will find a solution to the doorbell issue. As far as WIFI on the north side of the home, we recently pulled out a second WIFI line which didn’t function very well and we are now looking at using our existing Apple network or adding Satellite internet. Thanks also for pointing out the height of your particular unit, which is noted on the websites but may not always be seen by potential guests. We’ve had some guests find this particularly humorous, especially in the shower! (to which we’ll add additional large towels as you suggested). If this is really a problem, we do offer a second residence with higher ceilings which can be found as well in Fossemanant. Thanks again for helping us improve our guest experience!
