Thanks we had a great holiday and the house is a real gem and we are very fond of our holidays in Barra at this house.  Its position and layout are great.

I would rate the house overall a 4 (good)

This is our second time staying at the house over Dec / Jan so I believe we have a few constructive comments for the owners:

The house was poorly equipped from a kitchen perspective – too few glasses and bread boards (we had to buy bread boards and glasses which we left at the house)

The house needs hooks to hang towels up on outside (no place to hang stuff up)

Bathrooms needs racks and hooks to put toiletries and towels etc., as well as tables

The pool is a great addition.  Perhaps most importantly the house really does need air-conditioning – it was particularly hot when we were there (average temp between 34 – 37C) with little wind.  Total of 9 Nights with no aircon was difficult for people as the house really does bake.

The staff are great……

Other than that we had a great stay and would love to return, but would only return if there is Air Conditioning
