“Great holiday rental in a great location”
Reviewed 12 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Sophia's has all the comforts of home and that made our stay easy and enjoyable. The house is large and was clean and very comfortable.

There is not a lot of room in the bedrooms for suitcases and as only two of the bedrooms have wardrobes that meant that for an entire week some of us were climbing over suitcases to get around and were living in crumpled clothes which had to stay in the suitcase rather than be hung up.

There is no dryer in the house. Given we only had 2 sunny days, at the beginning of our stay, the dirty laundry started to pile up. A dryer would be really great to have in the house.

There was no vegetable peeler in the kitchen. I'm thinking it may have once existed (who doesn't use a vegetable peeler) and had been stolen so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt for this one.

The location is great. The house is walking distance to Leura Mall if the weather is nice. Leura is the prettiest of the mountain villages and the flowers in the surrounding streets were lovely.

Hayley is super-friendly and very helpful. We called her when we arrived and asked if the lawn could be mowed (it was knee high!) and it was done the next morning. There were some "essential" supplies in the pantry and fridge which meant we didn't have to shop immediately and there were pantry items like tomato sauce which meant we didn't have to buy those. It would have been nice to have dishwashing powder and washing up liquid there so we didn't have to buy that but we bough a cheap brand so it wasn't really a big deal.

All in all we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property.
This feedback is important to us as we then can act to improve for the next guests. As per your comments I have now brought a new vegetable peeler. It is unfortunate that you had such a wet week for the washing, the outside line and the indoor rack is usually plenty to get though while on holiday. But when on a long stay I understand that a dryer would have been useful. It was unfortunate that we were away the week before you arrived and only got home the day you checked in, so the cleaner was asked to do the extra bits that I usually do i.e. make sure there are plenty of dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid so usually they would all be provided for you. Also we supply breakfast for the first morning which I hope you found in the fridge, this should be bacon, tomato's, bread, egg's, milk, orange juice, muffins and a few other bits, I find this is nice when arriving somewhere to have some supplies so you do not have to rush to the shops. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay overall and have asked to book again for next year, so hopefully you will find some of your points improved upon for your next stay. Thanks again for your comments.
