The living quarters is a bit run down. We have a leaking tap, broken shades, extension cord that does not work, and a damp musty room. The dining area water leaked from the ceiling.

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

We attended the Golega Horse Festival. We were not prepared for what to expect and had to go to the tourist information centre to get a schedule, as no one seems to know what time the events were at.
