Life in a building site
The building was under construction (upper level, garage full chaos), entering the house you were welcomed by a broken staircase and bad odor. The part we lived in had a nice surface, which at closer look showed lots of insufficiencies, unclean chair upholstery, furnitures intended for bulky waste, etc.. The shown pic doesn´t exist - no smooth passage from meadow to beach. We had no machete with us to cut the trees and didn´t dare to jump down the 3 metres into the trees.
Yes, we are disappointed. homes we had before and have right now in Nova Scotia were quite different.
This property is out in the country yet close to everything. Especially enjoyed an afternoon reading by the beach.
Reno's in rental
This rental was a bit of a disappointment because it was under construction. We would never have rented it if we had known this in the first place. I think the owners should mention this in their ad.
The pictures show a lovely home, but when you opened the door, the key and door handle was completely loose. When we walked through the door, the entrance was unfinished drywall. We actually were shocked to see this. The owners did try to make the inside look nice, I must admit. There were no drawers in the cupboards, which I thought was odd. You couldn't open the top cupboards without them closing down on you instantly. So you had to hold it open with one hand while you reached with the other to get inside. We like to do our own cooking, so I was disappointed in the lack of cooking pots and pans, tea towels and especially, there was no oven mitts. The attention to detail (eg. providing candles and matches case of power failure) to providing a hair dryer was a fail. Also there is no washer and dryer to use. The living room furniture was really cheap with cracked cushions that needed a throw over them. Now the good.....What was wonderful about this place was the bedroom was nice and comfy, the bath towels were plush, the stereo and TV was awesome. The back deck was very nice and the view from the beach was incredible. I think once the reno's are completed, this home would be very nice to rent.
Review of VRBO listing #558449
We were generally disappointed with this rental as we had stayed in three other rentals in Nova Scotia and Cape Breton and had been very pleased.
The living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom were nicely appointed and met the description of executive. The floors, walls and windows were clean and bright. The beds were very comfortable and the linens were clean. The audio/video equipment was very good. Super great HD TV and the internet was super fast. Nice sound on the stereo.
However, there were a number of shortcomings that detracted from the experience.
Room for improvement included:
• The living room furniture had seen better days, was very worn and really ruined the look of the living room
The patio was quite decent but the furniture was worn; a new set would really enhance the setting, perhaps chaise longues as well
• The front foyer renovations had not been completed and there was a lot of debris and material in the closets
• Personal clothing items had not been removed from previous occupants in the bedroom closet; undergarments and worn bathing suits were found in a dresser drawer; used tooth brushes, make up, and personal hygiene products were left in the bathroom
• kitchen utensils were lacking and what was there had not been cleaned; kitchen knives were dull; the kettle had not been de-scaled for some time
• there were sanitary issues with mouse droppings found in the pantry drawers, utensils containers and in the toaster crumb tray
Despite these, the grounds were very nicely kept and the BBQ was OK.
The view of the bay was exceptional especially at night with the moonlight on the water.
All said, this rental location could be a great place to stay if the owners paid a little more attention to the little things and stayed on top of the utensil and cleanliness issues between clients and after season.
It appears to me that the owners do not comprehend the concept of meeting and exceeding customer expectations and were only interested in acquiring the rent and not prepared to put any effort into their offering.
Relaxing and friendly get away
The property was adequate and offered a great location to explore from. Lots of weekend festivals and gatherings along the Sunset Trail. The property was clean and comfortable. Recommend vacationers bring additional pans like cookie sheets and skillet, kitchen linen and a pitcher. There is a laundry mat in Tatamgouch .
Thanks Kathy for your comments. I will ensure that additional kitchen linens and baking equipment are purchased for any upcoming guests. Thanks again......Marlene
We enjoyed our stay in Malagash. Sitting on the deck in the evening and mornings was wonderful. We couldn't get the TV to work but we rarely watch TV when we are on vacation.
We were disappointed that the ice machine wasn't working and there were no filled ice trays in the freezer. Fortunately we found some and had ice a few hours later. It's a nit but important to us. The kitchen was well equipped and we grilled one night.
