I am disappointed that this client was not satisfied with Caminade.
The points she has raised regarding 'not as bright and sunny as the advert' and 'damp' maybe caused by the fact that whilst this client stayed at Caminade she rarely opened the shutters, curtains or the windows. Had she done so this would have allowed the sun in and the air to circulate through the property.
It is clearly stated in the advert that Dave & I live on site, this also enables us to deal immediately with any issues our clients may have, if we are told.
As regards cutlery and bedding again cutlery is replaced every year where necessary and the bedding every two years. I do agree the freezer is small and is situated in the fridge.
My husband and I work hard to ensure that all our clients have a good and enjoyable holiday whilst they stay in Caminade and this is re-enforced with returning clients year after year.
Is is a shame that this client could not tell us of her issues whilst staying at Caminade, even though she was happy to accept our hospitality on a number of occasions.
We have rented Caminade for 9 years and this is our first disappointing review. I hope it does not deter people from coming to stay here and having a great holiday.
