Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way better than the pictures suggest A guy at work said that if you stay at a great place at a great price you shouldn't write a good review, otherwise it won't be available in the future - but that just isn't fair: this is an excellent property that is hard to fault - awesome location, first rate facilities (as good as you'll have at home), sparkling clean and plenty of room for a family. Just wish I had more than a week to enjoy - the only thing I could fault is the pictures on Stayz, Chrys you need a new photographer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent beachfront accomodation The moment we walked in, we knew we’d booked the right place. We were blown away at the location as it’s right on the cliff with a private staircase leading to a very pristine beach. Moonta is well known to me and my family after holidaying here for many years and booking a place with a view was a must and this place offers that and more. It’s obvious Chrys takes care of her property as it’s very clean, has all the amenities you need and providing linen as part of the deal is VERY appealing and another thing we didn’t need to worry about. Big tick for providing a coffee machine as well, we needed it as parents of a young ( very excited) child. I’d just like to extend a big well done to the owner/s again, as we will most surely return for more fun and frivolity. And sunburn.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overrated property We arrived to find that the water had been turned off, and we started hunting around for what and how to address this. The lawn had not been mowed, and the garden looked unattended. We moved upstairs to find that of the 4 bedroom house which we thought we had booked and paid substantially for, three of the bedrooms were locked as well as the upstairs bathroom. We essentially had a one bedroom place which was not what was described in the blurb! We had wanted to have our grandchildren stay over, but that was impossible. The automatic bin was running low on batteries and made it impossible to open the bin, and so we simply removed the lid. There were no specific instructions on how to operate the DVD player or anything to be honest, and I would say that my husband is very good at that. After half an hour, we gave up. The curtains on the back window were very difficult to open and I felt that if I pulled too hard, something might break. Weeds were all around the property, and we had to work out what key to use to open the gate to the beach as well as the side gate to enable us to bring our dog basket around to the back. No instructions, even on the key ring to show which key opened what. Later that night we organised to have a spa bath, and when I walked into the bedroom and back again, there was water everywhere leaking from the spa bath taps, and so I used a towel to mop that up. To top things off, the night we wanted to have a nice hot shower, and there was no hot water, so we skipped the cold shower, packed our things, and decided that this was not a place that we would return to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Place We walked into this place and both of us were really impressed! Beautiful furnishings and layout! Large kitchen with everything you need in it (coffee machine was a big plus lol) comfy lounge to relax in! Nice pool table and balcony upstairs overlooking the beach, beautiful huge 2 person spa! And to top it off you have the beach at your back gate, its almost like having a private beach cause there was minimal people there and that was on a long weekend! The beach is gorgeous and a great little fishing spot! The photos of this place dont do it justice...it is superb! Highly recommend this place it was a great stay and very clean also! Cant wait to go back!
