Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beach House on the headland We were a party of 3 couples and 2 children (7&10). It was near perfect. Everyone had their own space but enough common room to come together. We had a couple of minor issues (light bulbs etc) that were attended to promptly.The children enjoyed playing on the grass in the back yard. This yard could easily be made very attractive for the adults to relax in with a day or two labour spent in pruning, removing dead trees/shrubs and a trip to the dump with the accumulated old 'stuff'. Similarly, the house would benefit from a little tlc... cleaning fan blades, new door mats etc. These issues were minor and did not impact our stay but would have made this a 5 star review instead of a 4

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great location but needs a spring clean. This was a great spot for a beach house. 1km drive from a flagged beach and a few hundred metres to the closest beach with rock pools to explore. Unfortunately we found the property quite dirty when we arrived. Floors were sticky and the whole place looked as though it had only had a quick clean a few too many times. We let the agent know and they said they would pass the information on to the cleaners. The wifi only includes 1 GIG but the house has an ultra HD tv so we were only able to stream 20 minutes of a show before our quota was used up. I would recommend bringing some dvds in case you do get a rainy day (hopefully it is all sunshine). The house seems in need of some maintenance and repair but when a problem came up (with two railings on the veranda coming loose), the agent sent someone over to fix it that afternoon so that was good. The house was well set out for two families or a group of friends to enjoy. Just needs a bit more love and some more thought about how a few changes could really improve the quality of a stay.
