First of all let state that Michele's House is a lovely typical house very quaint and decked out with some very nice furniture. Michele herself when dealing with our booking was very good and helpful and arranged our transfers from and to Larnaca and also set up our car hire.
However I believe in giving feedback then it needs to be honest and also bad as well as good points and unfortunately the bad points on this very nearly spoilt our holiday. O n arrival at the house we were met by a caretaker who let us in and very quickly showed us around unfortunately as he was opening a door leading from the kitchen to the outside sitting area he had to kick out a cockroach quickly followed by another, he then left as he had his normal day job to go to.
We were both taken aback by this and had a look round the house ourselves the bathroom was old and not a problem , everything you would need except for the three cockroaches under the rim of the toilet , which were obviously flushed away .The awful thing then was that we then had to deal with a further three scuttling around the kitchen tops .At this point my wife wanted to leave ,who could blame her, but we went to the local shop and got some bait traps and sprays .I then spent the next hour and a half trying to convince my wife that we had them all and they only lived in kitchens and bathrooms that's was ok until we then found them in the bedroom, I then emailed Michele about it and said in no uncertain terms about how unhappy we were .What did we get in reply ? A lecture on how to keep a house clean, a truly unbelievable attitude from someone who had just basically ruined our holiday especially in light of the fact that my wife has run a very successful cleaning company for 20 years. The caretaker did return with chemicals to spray all areas but the damage was done the first two days of our break was spent cleaning and sorting out areas including the fridge and outside areas which where overgrown .Each day we returned from being out we had to treed carefully when entering the house as the first few days did find dead or dying 'roaches on the floor, I have no idea if Michele employed her caretaker to clean the house when it was unoccupied ,if she did it is clearly a waste of money ,but the worst thing was her attitude as if expecting us to be cleaning her house on the very first days of our holiday , totally and utterly unacceptable .We both love Bellapais and North Cyprus but would absolutely never stay at that house again no matter what ,far to many very bad memories.
