Thank you for the review. Helen, the owner of the property takes great pride in the house and myself and her are disappointed to find that you were not satisfied with the cleanliness of the house, as you will see from previous reviews, this is the first time that this has become an issue. We will take on board your comments about the clutter in the house and have a look at this, we do however feel, that most of this adds to the charm of the property and is in keeping with the houses unique charm. I apologise for the television not working and hope this did not spoil your enjoyment of the house. I am glad you enjoyed the layout and location of the house and the fantastic views over the harbour.
