“Great House even better View”

We booked Magical Malindi for a girlfriends 40th birthday with some friends.
The owners are very nice and the house is very welcoming with cheese and freshly made bread.
The beds were very comfy the linen and towels were great quality and the house had everything you needed for entertaining. We definitely enjoyed our stay thats for sure. Very relaxing for all of us.

I do have a few issues which we were blamed for that is not sitting well with me. When we checked in the fridge was only turned on not long before, we were not told this so we half filled the fridge with items from our eskies. We noticed about 4 hours later the stuff was going luke warm. We called the owners and advised they were going to come and look but there wouldnt have been anything they could have done so we offered to put things in eskies until they send someone out. We took our half of the stuff to see if it would cool nothing then we took a further quarter out and stil nothing so we spent the entire weekend refilling our eskies with ice and having wet soggy packaged food all weekend. The owner agreed to reimburse us for the bags of ice but still has not done so.
The house was also full of ants - kitchen, balconies, bedrooms, bathrooms and we even went and tried to sunbake in the backyard - nope ants everywhere. If you are sitting on the balcony ants all over the handrail - we kept no sweets or drinks there?
I advised the owners of this and i received a text to say the ants are because we had drinks and sweets and the fridge is cool now its been emptied. If we had of been told the fridge needed to be empty for a few more hours to cool we would have done so. They even admitted over the phone they have had this phone call before about the fridge?
We also have not received our deposit back 2 weeks later - extremely frustrating.
I do recommend people to stay there as it was truly amazing but just keep an eye on those smaller things.

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Magical Malindi.
We are sorry that you had hassles Michelle.
When we arrived in the afternoon, on the day you left, to clean the house the fridge was cold! We had a fridge man out and the fridge was working perfectly. He suggested that when fridges are overloaded the circulation is hindered and results in poor cooling. We did have one other guest with a similar problem, that is, poor cooling due to overloading, that is two guests in five years.
It is a pain about the ants we agree. The home is in a rain forest and there are insect and for some reason ants have been in high numbers this year.We have left various baits and powders around but they are difficult to eradicate in the warm weather.
We do not control the bond, that is returned by Tripadvisor, we hope it was returned.
