Feedback on The Bunk House Mr Mrs Peter C Wood, UK
A quiet and quirky, out in the gorgeous country side location, 30 minutes drive up and down roads that ex British club rallye drivers like me really appreciate. It might prove a little too much 'Dukes of Hazard for some' though.
A quirk of the geography means that often it is 15 deg F warmer at The Bunk House than it is in Carmel village and so the fog / mist does not get this high. This is a big plus.
The Bunk House is a good 25 minutes further than Carmel Valley village itself.
The only kitchen, an outside kitchen, came as a slight surprise to us but was manageable, just. The Wasps at cooking time, during late August, are a big problem despite several wasp traps dotted around the area.
Everything was comfortable and reasonably clean given the cleaning fee added on as we first booked.
One thing that should be sorted is the solo burner for kettle and sauce pans to the left of the BBQ unit. The gas (propane) to air mixture is For too rich and thus it flares up with a yellow flame and covers anything put on it with black sticky soot that also ruins clothes. We did mention this to the owner and he said previous people had mentioned the same thing. However, no remedy was in the offing.
WiFi is good. Electricity and spring water good and a nice big fridge / freezer in the living room. Bathroom good.
A folder with local information would be 'a nice to have'.

The solo burner has been fixed. Sorry, but we had to order a part, and it took a bit longer than expected. Also, I don't know why the outdoor kitchen was a surprise, we have photos on the site showing the outdoor kitchen with descriptions. I don't know what more we could do there. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.
