Sorry we missed you by 10 minutes, Jacquie. The apartment was beautifully presented and suited our needs completely. It is a wonderful apartment in a nice little village and really handy to the Mont. Thank you for a most enjoyable stay.
This gite was exactly as promoted on the web and as we expected. It was spotlessly clean, and well appointed. It was warm on arrival which was well received on a cold day.
As the location is remote, we would have liked some more tourist information, including a local map, and we had some trouble with the washing machine, as we couldn't read the French instructions. There were many inclusions that we didn't expect, which made our stay more enjoyable, thanks Jacquie. All in all, a great stay at a great property, and we would use it again if in this area. 9.5/10
thank you for your visit, you are most welcome any time,
you did make me laugh though,
the instructions are in French,for the washing machine, i had the same problem, but i guess when in France???????????????? our Russian guests said the same ?????????????????
English follows Japanese,
Perfect location to enjoy visiting Mt St Micheal(15min drive) and also we enjoyed visiting St Malo for oysters. This cottage is in a small local village, so it was very quiet.
Both outside and inside the cottage was very clean(far beyond my expectation) as you can see in the photos, and high sense coordinated with purple as the accent color.
We arrived at this cottage around midnight, but Jacqueline gave us very clear instructions about the keys and facilities, so we had no problem.
I see there is a review saying that this place is cold/no hot water, but we did not have such a problem. When we entered the cottage, central heating was set and warmth healed our tiredness after 4h drive from Paris. Hot water was actually hot. Water pressure was also good.
Jacqueline provided us with some bread, orange juice for breakfast, great kindness.
I wish to be a host in Tokyo someday, Jacqueline showed me great example of hospitality.
I will definitely be back again and highly recommend to couples, groups and families!
Thank you very much, Jacqueline!!
Recensione altamente negativa! Non andate nei mesi invernali se non previa comunicazione con il proprietario di accendere quelle poche stuferete che ha in casa almeno 3 giorni prima! Freddissimo! L host non ha risposto a noi! Nonl abbiamo mai vista, stavamo a casa il minimo indispensabile perché troppo fredda! Un bagno non è riscaldato e nemmeno una camera sopra! L acqua calda per la doccia in poco tempo finisce! Non lo consiglio in inverno, in estate credo sia molto meglio! Anche le lampadine in bagno non andavano! Spero le abbia sostituite! Troppo caro per quello che abbiamo avuto! Per fortuna airbnb ci ha rimborsato! La casa è carina di per se anche il villaggio e il paesaggio attorno!
After emailing to see if our guests had arrived, as i did not receive a reply, i assumed they wanted their privacy, on day of departure, i got a text to say the upstairs was not warm enough, which did not give me an oppertunity to help,
had they contacted me, earlier,extra heating could have been provided, we take hosting very seriously, as we have several propertys, the guests befor, and after were very happy, on inspection, i did agree the upstairs bathroom did need extra, due to extream weather conditions, and an extra heater was installed, WE, issued a small refund via airbnb, as a token of good will, we live 10 min from the property, so could have quickly helped, as for the hot water , i strongly dissagree, there is a brand new, large tank, only 8 months old, so lots of hot water,
as for light bulb, even i can not know, when one might go, but as there was no communication,,,,,,,,,,,, i guess you can not please every one, but we wont give up trying!
Great location for exploring Mt Saint Michel and the d-day beaches. Plenty of room and outside area in a nice quiet village. Jacqueline communicated clearly with us from the start and made sure we had everything in place for our stay with our new baby. Nice touches like the fresh food left for us were appreciated.
On a apprécié beaucoup le séjour chez Jacqueline, même si on s'est pas rencontrés, elle nous a préparé une belle maison propre et accueillante, avec un lit pour notre bébé, un siège bébé pour la table et le petit déjeuner. Bien situé pour visiter le mont saint Michel et les alentours, merci beaucoup

About the Host, Jacqueline
We originally bought the house as a holliday home, but the more we came the more we fell in love with the place, so decided to retire early and enjoy a simpler way of life. on paper that sounds great , but in reality, we soon became board, after a lady came to the door for help, in finding some where to stay, it struck me that maby i coud offer bed and breakfast stays? id worked with people all my life, and run my own hair and beauty buisness for 21 years, and thats how it started, and i absolutly love it, meeting people from all over the world, all walks of life, and would not change a thing.
