Absolute Beachfront, Stunning Views

We really enjoyed our stay at Opossum Bay Beach Cottage. The location was sensational and the vintage board games provided hours of family fun. The cottage was great value and we enjoyed the quirky layout.

Basic but does the job!

  • 2 of 5

Despite the property being listed as "Minimum 1 night," we were asked to pay a surcharge for staying only 1 night and to provide all our own linen. We were told the surcharge was to cover petrol costs for the owner to ensure everything was clean and presentable for our stay. However, when we arrived, the beds were still made up in the used linen of the previous guests. We were also asked to sweep, vacuum and mop the floors after our stay. Nevertheless, the property is on absolute beach front, and had everything we needed for our stay.

Owner's Response: We appreciate feedback, as it helps us improve our service, especially where there is a problem. The difficulty managing one night stays has been corrected. We are able to easily offer one night stays. The perception of re-used linen is poor, but was not the case. We now offer a cleaning fee, however we prefer our guests to choose whether they clean / tidy or hire a cleaner to do this. ( This service is often mandatory interstate), however we prefer to give a choice. And most importantly... as Rosie states ...absolute beachfront, and stunning views.
