Response from Ben:
Apologies for working late. The house is in no way under renovation - just for the record - only an external building not connected to the accommodation (it was built 25 years ago with the renovations being done about 5 years ago). Whatever you think about the cost ($69 for 3 people is not expensive!), it doesn't include me being available for your tour guide needs - I was just offering as a friendly human being but also have my own life and things I need to do. Many people have enjoyed the property and taken responsibility for themselves, and enjoyed our gardens, bush, lake and pier. There's no reason you could not have done the same. Many thanks for your review, nonetheless!
