Thanks YUMI 🤗👍🇦🇺
Yumi was fantastic, she explained everything, great position, sometimes the locals got a bit loud at 2am but it's all fun. The house was clean and cleaned as per schedules, be aware if you leave your umbrella at the local Fresco's it'll go missing - ours did and we weren't happy walking home in the rain...the Fresco's manager replaced it with dodgy help out. Overall excellent stay. Double thumbs up 😃
