I'm afraid that even a review of the property and seeing the pictures would still not quantify the beauty that is Second Chance and that it has to be experienced.
We were a bit hesitant giving the la… More
Wow! - thank you. We're delighted that you were delighted with Second Chance and that your stay exceeded your expectations. Hurry back!

"Don't stay here - we had a terrible experience"
Booked a 3-month stay in June of this year for |Dec 2015 to Feb 2016 and paid a hefty down deposit. When we arrived the pictures we saw on the website showed it to be very beautiful, new and clean. … More
We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your experience at our cottage. We also can assure you that we always take steps to address any concerns renters present to us and as quickly as possible.
As we had explained to you, unfortunately there is not much we can do about the caterpillars and slugs as they naturally occur in our area. The caterpillars are attracted to a particular tree, the frangipani tree. They eat the leaves on the tree and even though they may sting if someone tries to capture them they are not poisonous. They are also very beautiful and bright colored. Using harsh pesticides to get rid of them (aside from environmental concerns) poses a threat to nearby animals e.g monkeys who are an endangered species in our country. With respect to the foliage, we pride ourselves on ensuring a variety of trees and plants are around to provide adequate privacy and shade in such a hot climate and our gardener comes every 2 weeks to manicure it. We have also trimmed the ones overhanging the roof as prior to your arrival we had no idea that they were hitting the roof at night.
Our photo caption states that the furniture was likely to change as we have not had a chance to update the photos and we are sorry you found it unacceptable. We took pride in selecting locally handcrafted pieces as we find it adds to the cottage feel of the place. In addition we have some antique pieces that we are in the process of restoring and we hope to update the photos once we have added them and had the opportunity to have new professional photos taken. The coffee pot was a huge oversight on our part which we apologize for and addressed that immediately. It will definitely not occur again. We always make sure our other appliances are clean and in good working order and our fridge was recently updated. We also provided matches while we sourced a new lighter once we had been informed it wasn't working. The shower drain issue was fixed within 24 hours of reporting and the fluctuatuations in water pressure as we explained had been due to some recent water shortage issues in the area and we had no control over that. We however appreciate that it was an inconvenience. We also had provided an additional fan for the bedroom for ventilation which you had agreed was a vast improvement. We have only one local tv station and hence only one tv channel. We do not provide cable but we did hook up the tv, provided DVDs and high speed internet which we hoped served as compensation. We had also expressed to you that we were looking into the option of adding a cable box for you.
We overall regret that you chose to cancel your stay us. Thanks so much for your feedback. We use all our reviews as an opportunity to improve the service that we provide to our guests.
An incredible all-in house where everything is set up perfectly. What you see and dream is exactly what you get there.

Many thanks for your detailed feedback of your recent stay with us. This is our first year of letting the apartment and I appreciate all the areas which you have identified.
The air condition engineer will be visiting the property next week and we are looking at installing a larger unit within the next few weeks. I am also looking at updating our email welcome booklet as well as having a hard copy within the apartment. In addition we have many new ideas which will be added early next year along with new professional photographs to fully ?show off? our new improvements.
