Thanks for your lovely, honest review and assessment of your experience at Old Clove House. We're really happy and delighted that you had a great time, and that you found the food and accommodation to be good as we really do try our best in that department as that's what makes the experience of staying at a private villa.
I do apologise for the situation with the mosquitoes but there had been very heavy rains during the weeks preceding your arrival and this has exacerbated the situation of the mosquitoes. We have since remedied that with various plug-in repellents all around the house and we're delighted to say that this has worked very well, and that the current set of guests with young children are finding that there are minimal issues with mosquitoes in and around the house.
I do look forward to seeing all of you again, particularly your mum, who's such a wonderfully special and lovely individual and really glad that you all had the occasion to celebrate her 80th birthday, and to see in the New Year at Old Clove House.
