Perfect home away from home!

Beautiful property, so close to the beach. Awesome fishing spot along the jetty. Our labrador loved his morning walks along the beach and the enclosed deck was perfect for him. Awesome place, look forward to visiting again soon.

Loved the location and would go back again. Tho I think the house is due for an update. There were cobwebs all around the house. There is mice poo in the bunk room behind the book case. I also asked for a cot but when we got there the cot was in the closet stacked full of lots of stuff which clearly wasn't freshly made up so I put my 2 yr in a single bed and hoped for the best. There were barely 10 pegs on the line to hang washing out with so had to buy some. The washing machine leaked as well. Ariel wouldn't work for the TV because it was broken so we rigged it up so we could get reception. I did notify owner if that one. The front blind wouldn't roll up but was lucky to have an uncle there that fixed that one. Microwave was missing a little foot underneath so was quite wonky. Would have been nice to have some microwave safe dishes to cook or reheat with.

Sounds abit like I'm complaining but I'm wondering whether other guests have failed to mention these things and gradually the little jobs are getting more and more of a list.

We would absolutely still stay again there but just thought I'd let you know a few things incase you wanted to get them sorted before the next people stay

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback Amy. We are only ever a phone call away if there any issues during your stay. The house was de-cobwebbed prior to your 8 night stay. Unfortunately spiders can rebuild webs overnight. We aren't aware of any mice issues and and thank you for phoning us in regards to the TV antenna connection which has now been fixed. There is a peg bucket with a supply of extra pegs in addition to pegs on the line. We would have been more than happy to provide a portacot for your 2 year old. Just a phone call away. All the minor issues mentioned in your review have now been resolved. Thanks again.

The Good Life!

  • 5 of 5

Thouroughly enjoyed the 'peace and tranquility', the house was well stocked for total self sufficient living away from home. The added bonus was the log fire in the cool evenings, very cosy. Wonderful walks along the beach collecting shells etc. our 14 year old dog became a pup again, running around off her lead!

Excellent property

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay. The property was clean and tidy and the view was fantastic. The best thing for us was that we could take our dogs and we really appreciated that. My husband loved fishing from the jetty where he caught a variety of fish.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I am a full time travel planner and have traveled extensively. This is by far the best homestay I have done in a long time. It is a home away from home. And all necessities are well stocked up. It is very convenient location and the home is just a good place to chill out after a long day.

I have 2 dogs with me who are usually very nervous to their new surroundings. However, they just feel very at home and enjoyed their stay thoroughly too.

I would highly recommend it to everyone who is looking for a comfortable and reasonably priced accommodation in Emu Bay.
