Having only read the two previous reviews after booking Waterfront Heaven (aka Banksia Cottage) our party approached this house with some trepidation. We were pleasantly surprised - the place is a delight!!
The situation is idyllic - the beach is at the bottom of the garden (along with the Superb Fairy Wrens who visited in the afternoons!) The house is airy and spacious, with large decks at the rear of the house and the granny flat.Perfect for eating out. The massive lawn garden was great for a kick around or a game of totem tennis! Lead light windows and timber floors gave the house character and charm.
The kitchen is up to date and has plenty of equipment and a good selection of wine glasses!!
While there was a bit of dust / dog hair under the sofas when we moved them and a bit of grime around the taps - they were easily rectified and really only minor issues and feedback was provided to the agent.Hopefully the cleaner will lift their game.
There is a hot and cold shower in the garden that was much appreciated after a dip.
Why shower indoors when you have a backdrop like this!??
While the agent was initially very defensive over the prior poor reviews, he certainly made up for it later.
I will definitely be returning - great place summer or winter, with the open fire and plenty of firewood.
Although basic, this lovely little cottage had everything, was clean, well furnished and well stocked with kitchen utensils etc. lovely part of the world, pristine beach a short walk away. Great for dogs although heaps of ticks. Price reflects the simplicity but not the location.
