Fantastic house

  • 4 of 5

Really spacious house in a great location. Really close to shops etc and nice quiet area. Well equipped kitchen. Luxurious master suite.

Would have been 5 stars with the addition of wifi, a decent set of barbecue tools and some block out curtains in the main bedroom. Was way too light way too early in the mornings. Would stay again if there was new curtains!

Overall though it was excellent and great value for money.

The house was fantastic, the only downfall was that the beds were very uncomfortable and the lounges had seen better days!

We loved this house

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house, there were 4 adults and 4 children and we stayed for 11 nights, it was so spacious - plenty of room for everyone, the kids loved swimming in the pool regardless of the weather. Almost everything you could need was there. It was in a great location and central to the theme parks. I was slightly disappointed with the cleanliness and condition of some things, but overall we were very happy with the house - we didn't want to go home & we hope to return back there again some day.

Large Family or Mates Getaway Resort

  • 4 of 5

A great position on the canals and next to the Runaway Bay Marina, and not far from shopping. The layout of the home is great for 1 large family or 2 families holidaying together. Great big deck and pool for entertaining or lazy afternoons with a beer.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay for 6 nights and will be back again.

The only thing missing was a decent set of BBQ tools, but we managed.

long awaited family holiday

  • 4 of 5

Upon arriving at the property we were impressed at the size of the house. Over the first few days we identififed a number of issues with the house fittings and fixtures. The over all cleanliness of the house was average, with a number of foreign objects found between the couch cushions and under the couch. There was soiled lined, dirty floors and rubbish located in bedrooms. Overall it was below the required level. The outside gate accessing the water was broken and the outdoor furniture was mouldy. On the plus side when speaking to the property manager he did replace the faulty toaster that day. Upon leaving we left a note for the property manager outlinning these issues and requesting a return call which did not happen. This left a dissapointing feel to our holiday. We have stayed at a number of 'stays' properties with this one being the worst by far.
