Good property. Friendly host. A few issues but ok
House is cool. Well designed. Lovely viewa. The property needs a manager that is more involved. The advise after booking was maybe not to drink the tap water as it's untreated rain water. Ok No biggie. Big buck hunter game is not working! Big disappointment and it should not be listed as it actually influenced our decision to hire. The BBQ had no gas and was very dirty. Place was tidy but balcony glass needs some love. it's a great house in a great spot. Friendly owner. just feels like the rental is not a priority which is fine. We enjoyed our stay despite the issues they just took the shine off a little.
Very relaxing and stunning house
The place is located in a really beautiful area, with koalas, kangaroos and other animals living in the area. The house is very modern with a nice interior design, especially the living area. The main balcony was the only place that could use some cleaning, everywhere else it was perfect.
Lovely place to stay at Kennett River.
Overall a great stay at Kennett River. The house and location was second to none. On a downside, a little more attention to detail would not go a miss from the owners. For example,
the bedding and furnishings could really do with an upgrade. Beds are ready to be renewed in my opinion. We arrived in winter and let the owner know what time we were arriving. It would have made the experience so much nicer had the owner took the trouble to pop round and switch the heating on. The house was soo cold, and by the time we arrived, it was getting late and the boiler was not working. It needed to be reset which meant we spent the first night in a very cold house. I text the owner in the morning and he told me how to rest the boiler. But it would have been a much nicer start to our holiday, had this been checked before we arrived. We did not opt for bed linen option as this was an additional $180. We were prepared for bed linen and towels to be provided by us, but the bathrooms had no floor towels. Not something you consider bring with you on holiday, so this was a detail that could have made the house more homely had it been considered. Also, for a house that sleeps 10, we could only find two wine glasses. Again, not the end of the world, but just an attention to detail that would make guests stay much nicer.
But overall, we loved the house and its location. And beside a few small details that could be improved by the owner, we would book this holiday home again.
Hopefully the house will have new beds next time.
Spacious modern home with great outlook, close to beach
This is a beautiful home with impressive features and views looking out over lowlands towards the sea. Plenty of space for two families, good sized rooms and decks for everyone, with hanging, lounge chairs and hammock to relax. Kangaroos graze on the lowlands in the evening and koalas are close by. Just a short walk to the patrolled beach. Don't miss the Kennet River walk just adjacent to the property.
Thanks great to have you!
A very impressive house with good features, great views and access to the beach and plenty of koalas
We completed our 5 night stay at the Kennett River property Saturday,12 Jan19, and enjoyed our stay very much despite a lack of water for one night which was addressed the next day.
Because water comes from a large tank fed by rain water off the roof or from a tanker (driven in from elsewhere) we took our own drinking water.
We added the option of linen and towels so we didn't have to provide our own.
The house was generally clean, especially the carpets and floors, but certain areas could have been given more attention, for example the top patio. As a courtesy to the next tenants it would be a nice gesture to make sure all dishes, cutlery, pots and pans be left in a clean and tidy state as we found this wasn't the case when we arrived.
You may need to take your own can opener and a large casserole dish to provide cooking for more than 3 or 4 people.
We had 9 people (including 4 children) which the house accommodated very well.
Our grandchildren really enjoyed the media room and it was good to have the tennis racquets to use too.
All in all we enjoyed our stay even with the drama of having no water for a night, and were really impressed with the house.
Relaxing getaway to feed the soul
We are two families of 6 and 4 and we had the most relaxing holiday. The house had everything we needed. A space for the kids, a space for the adults, beautiful views, wildlife including kookaburras visiting our balcony daily, kangaroos hopping through the yard, native birds to feed just down the road and we spotted a few koalas. There was a basketball court the kids played at daily and a cafe nearby we could've walk too. Many beautiful locations to visit nearby, including rockpools, waterfalls, and not far from Apollo Bay and Lorne. We would love to come back!
Thanks for the feedback Sarah was great having you guys!
