Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not stay here I booked this house for a week and left after 1 night. The main problem with the property was the electricty, we had go out and flick the circuit breaker back on 4 times in a 1 night! The agent seemed nice at first and said would investigate but all I was told was that he couldn't recreate the problem, so therefore I don't know it must be an x - file. Other maintenance issues which they didn't have "time" to fix before our stay. 1. Check in time on the website says 2pm, but you can't check in before 3pm 2. Fly screens - There were holes in the screens, and I'm not talking about 1 or 2 small ones, massive ones that let in flies and mosquitoes. 3. Couch had a massive rip in it - It looks really old, uncomfortable and really needs to be updated; the sponge from the inside is coming out of the leather! 4. The front balcony looks like there's some structural damage and was only being held up by 3 metal poles at the front of the house. I'm not sure if you need council approval for the house to be safe to stay in? I was told it's just a precautionary measure. A precaution for what if there's nothing wrong I don't know. 5. The play gym in the backyard was covered in spider webs. Yes I know it's out doors and you would expect this but it's not hard to grab a broom and clear these away as part of the house clean for the next guests. So expect to do your own outdoor cleaning. I asked for a refund as the house is not fit to stay in but was told basically that the issues could either not be recreated or weren't given enough time to address. Don't waste your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice house and even nicer location Thanks Geoff and Clare. This is a nice place in a fantastic location - a lovely, quiet little walk to the beach and what a beautiful beach. We are truly spoiled in Australia! The bedrooms are fantastic and slept 3 families comfortably. The house was clean, light and spacious, with a lovely view over the forest over the back. My only suggestions for making it even nicer for guests are to make the pool heated and replace the big couch downstairs with a more comfortable one - otherwise a great place to stay for families.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Holiday House We loved everything about this holiday home. It was clean, tidy and so gorgeous. The only downside during our stay was the weather. Didnt have the chance to walk to the beach with my flipflops or enjoy the pool. it was raining the whole time. The house is fantastic and is best for groups. Would recommend this anytime of the year coz it has everything you need. Thanks Geoff and Claire. Im already thinking of booking another weekend with you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Family Home! We had an absolutely wonderful weekend at Drifters. It is a very comfortable, child-friendly, spacious property. The kids loved the pool and the garden. The adults enjoyed the BBQ decking and the comfort of the beds/rooms. It was the perfect house for our group of friends. Thank you for the excellent service. We will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Holiday We recently enjoyed a week-long stay at Drifters and had a great time. There was a large group of us and the house accommodated us all very comfortably, it was also very well-kept and clean. We utilised almost all of the facilities on offer which were comprehensive and catered for all of our needs. The location is great and we enjoyed multiple walks around the neighbourhood as well of as course down to the beach. The pool and large backyard were also fantastic and on the few rainy days we had it was nice just to sit downstairs in the large living area. We all had a great stay and would highly recommend.
