About Joseph Goodman
We love to travel... and love to spend time near the beach. Our family consists of a Teacher, a Nurse, a Toddler & the world's most spoiled Dog. We understand the importance of work life balance, and our beach house provides a wonderful source of rest & relaxation, for ourselves and also our guests :)
Joseph Goodman purchased this Villa in 2017
Why Joseph Goodman chose Sandstone Point
We LOVE this area... So close to Bribie Island, the Marina, & Sandstone Point Hotel.. and yet, kicking back enjoying the view the whole place feels so peaceful and quiet. One day it will be our full-time home... until then, come and enjoy :)
What makes this Villa unique
The view... Beautiful sunrise over the water each morning. Glorious winter weather. Fishing. Kayaking. Drinks on the balcony. Lovely community feel. Time spent and memories made with friends and family.
100% refund if cancelled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Great Location with views
Some parts of the unit are becoming a bit worn and tired but informed that improvements are in plan. Apart from that location and views are great and within walking distance to Mariner and Sandstone Point Tavern
Thanks for your review - glad you found the location excellent. If you have time I'd love to get some details (via msg) about the areas you thought were most in need of improvement. We are continually working to improve. We recently replaced the stair balustrade with glass panels, painted downstairs bedrooms, replaced curtains downstairs, replaced air conditioner, replaced TV, installed Wi-Fi internet, & installed louvres to the upstairs bathroom... There is definitely more to do over time, but please do let me know if there was anything in particular that stood out for the wrong reasons. Many thanks, Joe
Family had a great time
Our family wanted a place to rest and the kids to swim, and this place was great. We were the only ones to use the pool, which our kids loved. The house was great, with a beautiful view from the upstairs area.
Thanks so much Dan :) Glad you & the family enjoyed some time to relax & unwind. My apologies about the dishwasher having some issues - we have organised a repairer. Many thanks, Joe
Townhouse Sandstone Point
We enjoyed our stay at this home, it was relaxing for us and an opportunity to explore the area
The owner replied promptly to our booking request.
Instructions were clear for easy entry and exit to the property.
While this home is not far from the water it is not a waterfront property, it is the row behind the waterfronts, but does have water views.
I don’t think the place had been cleaned properly. There was rubbish in both bathroom bins, the floors were sandy and gritty, lots of dust around on footstools, benches and floors, clothing left in wardrobes, old used soaps left in the bathrooms (which we did not use and left there), opened packets of food on the pantry, one even past its use by date, opened foodstuffs left in the fridge, food left in the freezer. We did not use any of the food that was left in this home.
Holes in the curtains, one of the vertical blinds had fallen off in the downstairs bedroom, remote for the garage door did not work, there was a fly swat, wooden blocks and some food tongs on the floor resting against the wall in the lounge area, which we left where they were.
We placed our used towels in the laundry basket, emptied the rubbish bins, including the bathrooms, we did not strip and remake beds as the instructions said that HomeAway guests were not required to do cleaning.
Whilst we had an enjoyable time, we cannot give the home a 5 star rating because of the reasons listed above.
The property does need a bit of maintenance. The front screen door is difficult to close, marks on some walls.
With the risk of food contamination, it is not a good idea to leave open food items in the home when guests arrive. No one wants to use someone else’s used soap either.
Fortunately we took all our own food
Judging by Airbnb standards, this home was unfortunately was not 5 star.
Thanks for your review Karen... I’m equally disappointed you were unhappy with our place, and would have been pleased to address your concerns earlier if I was made aware during your stay. I have passed on the relevant concerns (cleaning) to our cleaner who completes cleaning between guests. Kind regards, Joe
Perfect Sandstone Point Stay
Everything about Island View was just amazing - Joe's communication was excellent and his instructions of how to gain access were perfect. The home has everything you could possibly want, and was immaculately clean. The location is incredibly quiet yet only a quick drive to Bribie Island or a short stroll to the Sandstone Point Hotel. I would recommend staying here for either a family holiday, a relaxing break, or if attending an event at the Hotel.
Thanks Vicki.... We look forward to welcoming you again in future, Joe
Great access to good food a short walk. Great views and good neighbors
Thanks Martin... glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to welcome you again in future.
Property was well maintained and clean
We really enjoyed our stay at the property. It’s ammenities were all in good order, the kitchenware was of a good standard and it suited our family’s holiday needs well. However, there was a lack of plastic cups for our small children and found that the garage was too small for our car. But these are only minor things. We thought the signature sign around the stairs was a nice touch.
Thanks for the feedback Ryan. Plastic cups are fairly easy - good idea... the garage is a bit more tricky - but we do have plans to reconfigure shelving in future (might add 30cm length)... but will always be a compact garage. Many thanks, Joe.
