No wash clothes were provided and we had to provide our own toilet paper which wasn't stated to us. The pack'n'play was broken so we couldn't use it. No dish clothes just had 2 dish towels and 1 sponge was disappointed in that aspect.

We leased the house from the UK so our family of five could be together over Christmas and New Year in the middle of our daughter's University exchange year. The house is in a neighbourhood of similar recent builds, and is conveniently close to Carnes Hill shopping centre (, we found that the local office responded promptly to emails, e.g. advising how to reset one of the AirCon units and replacing a faulty TV. So, all in all, good for us.
