Great potential to be a wonderful house <3

  • 4 of 5

Thanks for your service. This is only us being picky: We had bacon and eggs for 2 breakfast but didn't find pans suitable, the bin was already 75%full when we arrived (so we took a lot of rubbish home with us), the backyard shower was not used because it was really dirty so a slight shame. Otherwise, the house is perfect for a large group of 14-18 and i admit the location to the beach and value is great. PS: the backyard is wonderful for outdoor activities and on the second day i discovered there was an awesome lemon tree to drink with honey. I think if the shortcomings were addressed then house would be perfect - so i do recommend this house to others. Overall it was a pleasant stay. Thanks again.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Andrew, for your review. I am so happy to hear you found the house perfect for your large group. The cleaners were not able to access the outdoor shower prior to your arrival due to the weather. Next time, please contact us on the number provided so we can make sure everything is perfect for you. We will also do a stock take of frypans provided. Bacon and eggs may have been best on the new bbq! I am glad you put the lemons to good use and found the property to be great value!

Recommended family entertainer

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and comfortable. It was great having children's play area where we could keep an eye on them from both BBQ and dining room. Loved the character of this older style home and the location was perfect. We will definitely be back!

Hop, skip, nightmare!!!

  • 1 of 5

BBQ dirty and not cleaned

Toxic chemicals in children's play area

Beds collapsed

Rude and unprofessional agent!

Do not stay here!

Owner's Response: I am happy our location was rated so highly. These guests were determined to get a free stay. They refused to allow cleaner access to the BBQ, which unfortunately was overlooked prior to their stay. They were offered a full refund when they began complaining, which they declined, so the property must have ticked enough boxes for them to want to stay! Additionally we did not deduct bond for the broken bed. We would not recommend them as guests.

Great place for team building

  • 4 of 5

Had to vacuum the mattresses when we arrived as they were a bit dirty... other than that everything was fine. Good value for money. Not too many frills to distract us so we could focus on team building. Great location right next to a field that hosts a market on the Saturday we were there. Less than 100m away from a nice secluded beach area. We'd definitely come back.

Lots of room

  • 4 of 5

Lots of room for our large family. Loved the massage chair and outdoor shower. Very clean and comfortable with everything you could need. Washing machine hose and laundry ceiling need some attention but otherwise all good.

Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my sons cricket team and a few dads and it had everything we needed.

Slept 15 comfortably and had plenty of room outside to play around.

Definitely coming back!
