Hi all, I know this is an area for you to talk, but I have a question and I didn't want to mention it on the main site for all the members to see an start commenting on, I don't think it's fair.
The house we stayed in a few weeks back had a really bad problem with bugs and cleanliness. I know it is very difficult to keep rental homes clean and tidy with the amount of guests that are using it, I just feel that this one was a little bit neglected
The house itself was beautiful and with some tlc could be fantastic, it is in Formosa Gardens overlooks Star Lake and gets the sun all day until it sets.
I spent the first day cleaning, the cupboards had food in them the fridge was :yuk: and the crockery and cutlery needed washing. I understand that this was probably because of the last guests, but I would have thought the management company should check.
We also had a really bad problem with red ants and bugs. I understand that it is tropical and bugs are normal, but we have never seen so many in a house before. We contacted the management company and they came round and sprayed but said that there wasn't a lot they could do. We were told they were carpenter ants Chris has been bitten by a red ant before so we know what they look like
I am unsure whether to contact the owner or not, we got the house at a reduced rate of £2,300 for the 3 weeks because it was a last minute booking and also she said because she'd had a cancellation.
I have attached a couple of photos just to find out whether you would want to know if this was your home. Having said that, I think the owner was there the week before us, so maybe I would be wasting my time

Bedroom bugs - it was worse than this, but we used to spray every day with some bug killer we bought.
