“Update Shower”
Reviewed 20 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We had a lovely stay at the White House with our family and it accommodated all of us very nicely. We just have a couple of minor suggestions.....1. Due to some families eating in due to allergies, the kitchen could have more than 1 tea towel, a cookie sheet, basic kitchen equipment..........one big suggestion is the shower........all of us tried to have a nice shower....the shower was the worst I have ever had.......I was either scalded or froze as the temperature was not consistent and this was not due to someone using water in other parts of the house.......other than that it was very spacious, we loved the welcome package along with wine which was a nice surprise and your friendly welcome was most appreciated.

Liked best: Spaciousness, the bedrooms, nicely decorated
Liked least: The shower and lack of seating in the living room area for large groups as the conservatory was cold to sit in at this time of year.

I will respond to each comment as given. You stayed in the property for one night - I would have imagined one tea towel to be ample for a stay of less than 24 hours - however there is a washing machine at the property for guests use. I personally went to clean the house after your stay to find one tea towel in the kitchen and another hanging over the radiator stained with red wine. Evidently this had been used in an attempt to clean the red wine which remained over the work surfaces, microwave (which is wall mounted), the walls and the ceiling...There were two baking sheets in the kitchen drawer. The shower - I prrsonally stayed in my property the week before and took a shower there - it operates as it should however I do find that guests occasionally alter the temperature and are unsure how to bring it to an ambient temperature. It operates independently so use would be unaffected alongside another person using water in the house. Your comments are noted and I will point out the operation of the shower - which works perfectly - to my future guests. Thank you for your comments.

“Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed 25 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed at The White House from Friday 21st November to Sunday 23rd November. Directions were easy to follow and we were met at the house, a little tour and we left to it. The house is quite large but has a very warm and cosy feel which was lovely when you could hear the rain outside. There were 3 adults and 2 children staying for the weekend and there was adequate space for us all, there is a TV/DVD in the loft room making it ideal for the kids to be able to watch a film (we had our own DVD's for the car journey anyway). We ate in both nights and there was everything byou could need in the kitchen along with a nice big dining table so everyone could eat together. The consservatory is great for children to play and just handy having the extra space. Furniture is very comfortable adn we all found it quite hard to stay awake in front of the TV! Bedrooms were lovely and the bathroom was great - being 8 months pregnant the bath was much needed! We will definitely be staying again.

“Cosy, modern house with a nice big garden! Great place to stay!”

The White House is a lovely cosy and modern house. When we arrived Lisa made us feel very welcome and was really friendly, and showed us around, which was nice after a long drive. The house was very clean and tidy and had all amenities, bedding and towels needed, with us having two young boys. It was great to have a steriliser and travel cot, so we didn't need to bring ours. The bedrooms were lovely and cosy, and the beds were really comfortable. There was a lot of space downstairs for all of us and the garden was great for our toddler to run around in. Easy parking too. We were very close to the beach and a couple of supermarkets, which was great. Lovely place to stay for a little holiday in Exmouth!

Lisa & Carol the hosts are friendly and welcoming. The property is immaculately clean and very well appointed for families with young children through to teenagers and has a safe enclosed rear garden for children to play. I would fully recommend.
