The house is very dirty, don't know when last the cupboards were cleaned, we had to wash everything before we used it, broken shower door with a sign warning you, rather fix the problems instead of putting up a sign. For R950 a night you are expected to clean the entire house before you leave, no maid, so this means we slept on the same linen as other guests.

Establishment response:

I’ve read your reaction about your stay in Marloth Park. Must say I am really surprised.

Out of the so far 100 bookings I had for our house, you are the first very negative person. I have tenants who come back more than once. In fact, the people who came in on Friday night after you were there for the ninth time.  They did not complain, although they will tell me straight away if something is not right. The people before you asked me to come back next year.

I only can agree on one thing and that is that the shower door needs to be fixed, we’ve been looking around but it’s not so easy, hence it’s on the list.

A maid, no  we don’t have a maid, we have a caretaker that comes in with his team and  does clean the house before you enter and cleans it ( your dirty dishes etc.) after you leave and he changes the linen, towels etc., so  you  do not sleep in other people’s sheets or use their towels. What do you expect for R950 a night for a house that sleeps 6, R150 a head, I don’t know. Yes whatever the price is, the house must be clean. The house is easy to maintain, and if you want a maid for only two days or more, you can always ask for it, will tell you that they charge around R200 a day.  All we ask is that the geyser is switched off, electricity is very expensive in that area. And yes if possible that the dishes are done, most of the people don’t do it, and if not done, the caretaker does it.

There is a note that says that If anything is not right to call the caretaker or me to point  out the problem.

I was there in May and did a spring cleaning, cupboards and all, it’s an old house I know, but still I am 200% sure that I left the house clean, even washed all the curtains etc. even had the lounge suite cleaned by a professional. And that was done by me, not the caretaker. 

We do our best, and if anything is not right, we fix it.

Great experience
We were very happy with the conditions inside the home, it was neat, clean and everything we needed was there. The swimming pool is also within a very short walking distance as well as the shop, which was great. There was braai facilities and an outside shower to cool off in. It was a great experience to have the game animals walking around freely outside the home while we were there.

Lovely, clean, secure house. One feels safe at night. We enjoyed the stay and was surprised at the letter and map the owners left us to inform us about the lions and where they were. Thanks a million. We felt very welcome.
