Property was amazing, views incredible, very relaxing unwinding on the verandah with the added bonus of allowing pets inside and outside of the property.
Highly recommend and will definitely come back.
Amazing view but requires maintenance
First of all the view is stunning & we really enjoyed our stay. It’s an older style property but we appreciated its charm & space. Secondly the property manager Melinda from PetLet was extremely prompt in responding to our maintenance requests and did everything in her power to make our stay a positive experience.
Pros - check in was a breeze; double garage & remote great for getting in off the busy road; comfortable beds & pillows in bedrooms 1 & 2 (no-one slept in the bunk room); good air con; plenty of cutlery and crockery; lots of kitchen bench space; & the dishwasher, coffee maker & microwave worked well.
Cons - the following comments are intended as constructive feedback, and we hope they will be taken as such. The maintenance man fixed what he could, however the owners need to do some maintenance to bring the property up to scratch for its price point in the rental market. . Things don’t have to be glamorous but they need to be functional, eg main bathroom cistern leaking slightly, en-suite hot tap screeches & cold tap drips (we were told the washers have been replaced but there’s still a problem). The grout in the en-suite shower looks very grubby & the frame is surrounded by a grubby open drain!
There needs to be a wardrobe provided in main bedroom & also one in the back living area as the third bunk bedroom is tiny & there’s only a small chest of drawers. It would be okay for young children but crowded for teens and adults. The rods to control the blinds are missing on several blinds & the venetian cord in the en-suite is broken. The front sliding screen door needs to be replaced as it comes off the track. The canvas blind outside the side kitchen window has started to tear and needs to be repaired before it gets worse. The front veranda rail & gates are low & could be climbable. The stained carpets were off putting but hopefully they were clean. The lounge in the front living area was very low so it was hard for us 60+ to get up out of it
The secure back yard needs a tidy up & side garden needs weeding - could be problem with long haired dogs. The stove top is old & we had trouble adjusting the heat & fitting our pans on it, so we requested and appreciated the provision of an electric frypan. Finally we would have appreciated it if towels had been provided, as we flew from NSW. NB - we couldn’t find he property manual.
Overall we loved our stay, and with that wonderful view it deserves 5 stars with more maintenance.
The property is dated.
Cleanliness - 3/5 - Kettle was covered in oily residue not cleaned.
Carpets in lounge room stained.
Lounge was uncomfortable.
Screen door comes off track which made it impossible to have the sliding door open for fresh air.
Back yard is a tripping hazard with un even paths. Maybe removing all the leaves, gum nuts and cutting back plants for easy access.
Thank you for your honest review Sonia. We have taken on-board the issues you have listed and taken the appropriate action to rectify them. It is important to us to know of such things, so we can continue to improve our guests experience, so thank you again. - Pet let

Lovely cottage with beautiful outlook
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the McCracken cottage ...my only reservations would be having to supply towels and a 4 pm check in .....otherwise 5 stars all the way ......
Thank you for taking the time to write the lovely review Ruth. We appreciate the feedback. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at McCracken and hope you will decide to stay with Pet Let again sometime. Most of our homes have a 2pm check in and towels are available on request, so with this in mind, we'd love you to explore our many gorgeous homes we have available for you and your fur babies. - Pet Let
