Spacious house

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of four lady golfers and each enjoyed a bedroom to ourselves, two bedrooms using the main bathroom and the other two bedrooms sharing the ensuite. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of extra blankets which we used when the overnight temp went down to 1 degree C. The house was warm and everything we needed was there. It's a quirky heritage house that seems to have been added to, so it took us a while to get our bearings. We had an issue with the dishwasher leaking slightly which was resolved by Tania very efficiently and promptly. A negative with this property is the fish tank which is not very attractive and needing a clean. Apart from that no complaints. More lounge seating would be good, four of us could sit comfortably but if we had been a bigger party they would have been on dining chairs. The little garden would be lovely in summer.

Nice location and house but needs good clean

  • 3 of 5

Nice big roomy house and great location but House, fish tank, back garden and shed could do with a good clean, old food and products need to be cleaned out and old linen and creaky beds replaced. Outside needs spiders and cobwebs cleaned up, was quite warm but couldn't open windows for spiders. Dampened what could have been a lovely stay.

Lovely pet friendly accomodation

  • 4 of 5

We loved this old property. Would have given it another star ?? if it had aircon and fans and it was very hot in Canberra all week. Loved Kingston and being close to everything. Thank you for sharing this gorgeous old property.
