Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not stay again Stayed here with a group of friends in early November. Although it was a nice enough house with a lovely view, we did have some issues. Spa was not working properly and we were told a maintenance man would be in to repair some items in the house during the week that had previously been broken. No maintenance man turned up. The only real problem with this house was meeting Kate upon our arrival. She gave us a very unwelcoming lecture about our manners and behaviour. It was very unprofessional and highly inappropriate. I am not sure what provoked her to behave this way on the day we arrived. It was quite unacceptable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Families House is well equipped for dealing with families with multiple "play areas" available for different age groups. Rooms were comfortable and we managed to accommodate 2 couples and 3 young families easily. Whilst not the cheapest option in the area it definitely provided value for money. It was unfortunately too overwhelming to climb down the big hill with little children (all under 3 years old) and whilst the coffee shop was close, it wasn't really walking distance with the big hills in between. This just meant we drove instead. :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great property, Bad start My group and I had a wonderful time in this house. It was big and beautiful, the views were breath-taking, and we made good use of the spa, sauna, games room, and kayaks. The bunk beds downstairs did receive complaints, but we managed. The only real problem with this house was meeting Kate upon our arrival. She gave one of our occupants a very unwelcoming lecture about manners and behaviour. It was completely unprofessional and wildly inappropriate, it weighed down on everyone in the house for the rest of the day and made it impossible to relax in the house for the rest of the trip. I'm not sure what provoked her to behave the way she did on the first day, but it was unacceptable. To her credit though, Kate was very considerate when we had a mishap on the last day of our trip where a fellow occupant had lost the keys to the house. She was very nice and polite about it, and we appreciated how understanding she was at that time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ski Cove House was excellent We have just returned from a wonderful 4 day stay at Smith's Lake and I thought it would be good to give you our impression of Ski Cove House. I'm happy to report we found it a gem of a place to stay. We were greeted on arrival by a friendly an helpful Kate who showed us around and explained all the "ins" and "outs" of the place. Apart from the truly exceptional view, that hits you as soon as you walk upstairs, we were impressed with how well and comfortably furnished the whole place is. Big sofas to sink into, and lots and lots of open SPACE. A couple of nights were a bit chilly but we opted for air conditioning rather than the fireplace because it was easier for us to just set and forget the temperature at 23. I was in charge of most of the meals and I thought the kitchen worked really well and the adjoining dining area took 8 of us for a sit down meal without a problem . My husband had a couple of opportunities to BBQ (at my suggestion) and cooked up a storm on the deck with the BBQ Sleeping accommodation upstairs was a marvellous with 3 generous sized bedrooms upstairs (the one with the ensuite and T.V was luckily ours) and for the others, there was a bathroom and separate toilet. There are another 3 bedrooms downstairs, one with bun beds for kids, where some of our friends stayed for a couple of nights again with their own bathroom. Did I mention lots of SPACE we all enjoyed the TV room (some of us more than others). One of the many things we liked about Ski Cove House was the entertainment options we had. The full size games room complete with table tennis, darts and mini snooker, is perfect for rainy days of which we only had one thank goodness. The spa on the deck and the nearby sauna was a new experience for us which we all enjoyed. There was even a runabout with a motor for us to use if we wanted to, but we did not get around to it on this occasion All in all, we really enjoyed the laid back and relaxed atmosphere of Ski Cove House . It was Immaculately presented, as comfortable as can be, and perfect for us and our friends as a holiday place with spectacular views of Smith's Lake . We will be back . Count on it.
