Christmas break

  • 2 of 5

We spent 10 days at the property over Xmas and New Year. The house has beautiful views overlooking trees, and of course the lake. A 20 minute walk uphill from town -a pleasant walk via the boardwalk.

Pros: the views, large house, pool table was a hit with the family. Kitchen hadadequate equipment for holiday cooking. Neighbours very friendly.

Cons: no cooling or heating in this home. As we experienced 28-36 degrees on most days we were there, it was warm in the evenings when we were in the home, and difficult to sleep at night. One portable fan is available for the whole home. Any breeze from the East through the windows was welcome. Also, no bath/hand towels provided. Probably should add this in the description so other guests can be prepared.

Overall we thought the house had great potential. A few extra details would have really made the difference in making the home more guest friendly. Hence, given the price paid per night, we didn't rate the house as good value.

Owner's Response: Merimbula is a very beautiful and comfortable little coastal town,it has the best climate in this whole country like most of people can agree on.we have a couple of hot days in summer and always nice sea breeze,so most of local people don't have cooling system for the very little hot time.in winter,it doesn't get cold till June July,then warm up again around October.however we are considering this year putting up a gas heating system for colder month.

What a beautiful house with fantastic views. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and already talking about next time. Between the views and entertainment room our entire family was entertained and relaxed. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay.

Beautiful house, bad owner

  • 2 of 5

Don't get me wrong the property is nice but if you want to be called DIRTY if you forget to wipe the microwave book this place.

The reason we are giving this rating to the property is because of the poor customer service.

First Problem: We got a reservation e-mail stating the house is reserved for 7 DAYS. But she never answered my e-mail or phone calls which we can understand since she told us that the phone was not working for a few days BUT We nearly lost our spot to another person then I learned from her that she doesn’t reserve the house. It’s first one in. The 7 days reservation doesn’t matter as long as the first put the deposit he gets in which is completely against the terms and conditions.

Second BIG Problem: The house state that the house should be left in the same state than when you enter it. Reading this we cleaned the house for nearly two hours before leaving and the night before as well.

We tried to make everything clean as much as we could.

We mopped the bathroom floor, made up the bed, put trash where trash needs to be, cleaned the table, vacuumed the rooms and living, putting the cushions back in place. The house was quite clean.

After cleaning the house and leaving I remember that I forgot something in the freezer so I write them a text message to say tell them so they could remove it before the next renter comes, as well as telling them we cleaned the place.

Later on at night, we were very upset that she sent us an e-mail calling us DIRTY JUST BECAUSE WE FORGOT THE WIPE THE INSIDE OF THE MICROWAVE AND THAT THE COOKTOP WAS NOT CLEAN UP TO HER STANDARD (I WIPED THE COOKTOP WITH A CLOTH)

We honestly did forget about the microwave there was quite a lot of stuffs to clean in the house so it’s an honest mistake, but it was INSULTING to be called dirty for forgetting the microwave when the WHOLE house was very clean.

We were going to book the place for 2 weeks on September but I think we will find somewhere else to go.

CONS ABOUT THE HOUSE:

- Gas bottle not refilled outside

- Dining table dark because there are no lights on the ceiling at that spot (very uncomfortable to have dinner)

For this we give them 2 stars only.
