Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blissful After reading a few of the negative on line reviews I was a little nervous of my upcoming stay at Ski Cove house. After our stay, I can’t understand these reviews. The house was fantastic, the views unbelievable and the house was very clean with everything in working order. It was so peaceful to stay at this house, and it is equipped with everything you may need for a great break away. The house is spectacular and worth every dollar we spent. I think the problem with some of the reviews is that people have different expectations and sometimes don’t know how to work the boats, spa or sometimes ovens and they simply put bad reviews up because they can. For the record we would stay again (hopefully every year) and highly recommend the house to others.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I would expect for the price. Upstairs is lovely. The veranda looking over the lake is lovely at dusk. Down stairs is dark and musty. I had allergies all weekend. The toaster did not work. There was a major mix up when we left as the cutlery was left in the top drawer of the dishwasher. Our refund was not given until we insisted that they look there (after the manager telling me there was no cutlery drawer).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed in Ski Cove House Ski Cove House certainly has an amazing view but the standard of accomodation for the huge amount of money we were charged is simply not right. This house is advertised as being luxuriously appointed but in reality it is an old house that is run down, the oven, boat and spa dont work properly, one of the bunk beds is too broken to sleep on, games dont have enough pieces to play, no proper pool cues, the bbq is just a hotplate and the house is needing to be properly cleaned ect ect. The air conditioning was really dirty and clogged and there is an overwhelming damp smell. The property manager was nice to speak to, she brought us cockroach baits and darts and made up 2 beds which werent ready when we arrived. She asked us to let her know of problems and we ended up having to speak to her often during our holiday, but not much was able to be resolved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing with a view Stayed at Ski Cove House over the Christmas week with a large family booking and was disappointed. Do read the reviews below as many of the issues remain. The house requires lots of maintenance, better cleaning and the mould issues are very visible still in the master bedroom. Disturbingly a substantial cockroach family is living in the kitchen, appliances and fridge. The house is quite dated but is well equipped as it shows and the view is great. The games room though is actually the garage, which doesn’t show up in the photos. The property manager is quick to reply but slow to resolve issues.
