                                                                                                  5 of 5

We didn't like the rugs which moved about too much. Also the rug in the sitting room was dangerous as it wouldn't stay flat. I was worried all the time that one of us would trip on it. The bird life was great. Some unusual ones and masses of very small ones. The remote for the television was missing. We informed the caretaker.
