"The worst holiday rental we have used."
I would not recommend this property to anyone. Very poorly maintained. Chipped crockery. Oven would not work. Dirty windows, Dust on floors and furniture. Decking in porch and patio rotten. No BBQ alt… More
First thank you for taking the time to write a review.
I hope at least you were able to benefit from the kilometres of pure undisrupted nature and the fresh air of the North Sea which is the primary reason people go to wissant.
I fear this was your first experience in Pas de Calais (wissant).
Regardless of your knowledge about the area the moment I received your request I have sent you two links explaining the works, which might be inconvenient but very necessary, despite the works access to the beach is always guarantied.
- Our housekeeper was present upon arrival, to assist and to explain anything which might have not been clear in the guide document which you have received days before your arrival. (It is unfortunate you didn't seize the opportunity to ask her to redo what you didn't find up to your own standers of hygiene)"the dust you mentioned"
- Windows and doors indeed they have a special method to open and to close so does the oven. (Again mentioned in the guide document), the housekeeper could have personally passed by to help, plus I am always reachable to answer any of your questions.
- Whereabouts of the BBQ might be misallocated by the clients before, am sure it must have been somewhere in the garage.
- In regards to the parking I will just allow myself to copy past what is mentioned on my add “And if you are coming with all your sport equipment don't worry we have a closed garage to stock all your stuff and plus a parking right in front of the property.” I am not French but I can say Wissant is one of the few places I know where you don’t need a secure parking for your car you just need a parking spot.
I personally enjoy renting holiday houses as you get the taste of how it really is in a specific region or country, sometimes it is just too different to what we are used to, and sometimes when it is too late we realize this is not the type of vacation you were looking for. This is the charm of it.
I reckon there will be no next time renting with me but my advice to you always speak up from day zero as more than 60% of the issue could have been solved easily.
Good luck in your future vacation quests
