A perfect getaway spot
Love this place!
A newly built home, off the grid, private, on the shore with wonderful sunrises and views. Very clean, well equipped suite and individual rooms available. Hosts are welcoming and informative about their journey developing this piece of land into an idyllic retreat.
Landscaping still natural, no finished lawns yet. Young children will need extra supervision.
Thanks, you were the right moment at the right place. When the colours start to play around our retreat we will send all the bright ones to you. You will definitely collect those memories of beautiful this spot of nature, seals, relaxing, golfing, great lobster cuisine as well as piano music at your retreat.
It is an honour to be your host. Anytime.
Great host, nice location
We stayed in this apartment as a family of 5 with 3 children ages 4, 6 and 8. The size of the apartment was ok for us but because it's in the attic/third floor and the ceilings are slanted, it felt a tad cramped. The location of the house is nice (on the ocean) but the outside grounds/property is not fully developed and it's not entirely safe for kids. The hosts were lovely and keen to help out with any issues, which there were a few given than the apartment has just been put up for rental and not beta tested so to speak. Also the apartment is on the third floor and you have to go through the living room of the second floor apartment to get to it, which is a bit of an awkward layout. Overall, we had a nice stay but it didn't feel like a cozy place for the family to retire/relax for longer than a few hrs.
thanks for your comment.
As far as I know, we had several chats about the location and I advised against booking this apartment with 5 persons, but you insisted on booking this apartment. The sloping roof is visible on all pictures and does not interfere with the movement at an angle of 45 degrees. So you could fully use the 50 m². We told you that the 2nd floor is rented out and the 3rd floor is completely private. At that time we only had one room booked on that level. You knew what you get in advance.
No problems one can't solve, specially when you start renting out:
A problem with a pan that did not work on the induction cookers was solved and the pan replaced immediately and a kitchen sink which leaked and was fixed. If there was anything else, you didn't tell us.
We seem to have the highest level of safety and thought of so many safety and security issues, which compared to other locations have not been considered there.
Security smoke detectors, carbon monoxide alarms, no open fire for cooking, handrails up to the second and third floor and also on the way to the sea are installed for safety reasons but this doesn't replace the supervision of the children.
At the check-in I gave you and every guest on a tour around the property a lot of safety information, how to walk safe down the stairs (always use handrail) on the way to the sea and how to behave on the cliff in general and after a rain when it's muddy and how to swim at the nearby 2 feet deep pond safely with children.
What we will definitely buy, are children's plugs for the sockets.
On a property in the nature like this you always have to pay attention to the children.
So finally you enjoyed your stay, everyone saw seals in the ocean just in front of our beach, the children had games to play in the apartment.
We are proud about the design of this property and don't think it's an awkward layout to walk through a shared space to a totally private space on the 3rd floor, which has the most space for guests to use. It's an opportunity to get in contact with other guests and communicate I guess.
We will definitely will learn from every guests experience and ask everyone what to improve.
What we all need is good communication before, during and after the stay.
