Easy to relax, biggest pain is to drive 15 min to Nelson Bay to pick up keys, then at the end of our holiday to drop off keys again, makes it hard when you are towing a boat, surely the keys can be left at a closer pick up point and a drop off point. spoils the holiday a little. Also the large sliding glass door is extremely heavy and difficult to lock.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Seems like you enjoyed the property which is good but just having mentioned the keys being a hassle to pick up. Unfortunately we do need to have guests pick up and drop off keys at our office so we know when they are arriving and when they are vacating the properties. Also due to insurances keys can not be left at properties and we must have all sets accounted for at all times.
We loved our stay can not wait to come again very happy with our accommodation
We had a lot of minor issues this time. Such as Range hood not working, shower playing up. dogs getting flees, cupboard doors falling off, locks broken, new window covers not working etc etc. What a pity. Nice home but needs more care. We would like to come back once issues are fixed so we get what we paid for. Staff at O'Meara were great as always. Thank you
Thank you for taking the time to write a review we really appreciate your feedback. There is a switch to the left of the cooktop that says 'range' this needs to be on. You then pull the exhaust slider towards yourself and on top there is an option for 1, 2 or 3 to choose the strength of the exhaust fan. I have been out to the property today after reading this review and can confirm that it is working correctly. Next time please do not hesitate to call as we are always able to help with anything over the phone if you have any trouble. While there I also checked all cupboards and was unable to find any that were loose or broken, I also checked the blinds, and I was able to get each of them working. Please note that each room has an individual remote. Whilst we are glad that you enjoyed your stay, we encourage you to call the office to discuss any issues you have while you are staying so we can help you while you are still here, and we hope despite these things that you still enjoyed your stay at this lovely house!
The house is amazing with a home theatre, huge living area and lovely deck / outdoor area. It well exceeded expectations. Has everything you need (BYO linen and supplies) The high ceilings and quality fit out make it very luxurious. However, the place was infested with cockroaches which freaked me out. It needs a professional spray. It had several dead ones in every room when we arrived (I had to sweep and mop after our long trip) and I wasn't prepared for the onslaught of live ones after that. Was a real shame as it spoiled the stay in such a beautiful house. Next time I would stay in Nelson Bay as there was nothing in Anna Bay for us. With young kids, the local Anna Bay surf beach is too dangerous. Though the price was great for what you get which is quite a lot. The place seems very secure too. Could use more blinds as the bedrooms don't all have them so you get woken at dawn. :(
Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate your feedback.
Being a property right near the beach/sand and also given that it has been extremely hot cockroaches are something that we cannot help. It is seasonal and more common in the hot weather for them to appear- the owners had just surface sprayed in November as well, so this may be why you found dead ones.
The owners have installed blinds on both windows in the first and second bedrooms, the main bedroom has one blind on the south side and a very large Norfolk Pine on the north side so the light is filtered.
Birubi Beach and One Mile beach are both patrolled, and while there may be days when it is a bit rough, majority of the time it is safe and a lot of fun. If you would prefer something quieter and calmer though, you can go down to Boat Harbour where the waves are much smaller for kids to swim, snorkel etc. Anna Bay is great for surf, there are the sand dunes, camel riding at Birubi, fishing on the beach as well as shops and restaurants just down the road.
I am glad to hear that you did enjoy the house despite the few things mentioned and we do hope you stay with us again.
Nice home,little over priced for what you get. The house is modern & clean.Neighbors were renovating from 7 in the morning EVERY DAY & used circular saw to cut fire wood for hours in the evenings. Too noisy for us to relax. Watch out for that HEAVY door that Caused a sore back. The real estate staff were very helpful and very professional.
We stayed at this house for 2 nights in the mid of July and had a great location close to Birubi Beach. The house itself was very modern and clean, but the bedding wasn't very good, as in the winter time it is very cold and the quilts were very thin for the season. Some amenities were not given such as a hairdryer and linen. Also, the instructions that were given to us when collecting keys were very minimal and as we walked into the property the alarm went off, and we were not given any instructions how to turn it off or stop it. Overall, the house was nice in a great location but is not worth the price paid.
As the property is self contained it does not supply linen, we do offer a linen hire service for next time if you are interested. Personal items are also not provided such as hairdryers, toiletries etc. In regards to the alarm there are instructions on the keys that are given out and the remote that disables the alarm is labelled, there is also a code given as well. I apologise if you misunderstood the instructions given, we will consider this for future guests. Also the property is air conditioned so if you find it is cold at night and the doona and extra blankets aren't enough you could always consider having that on as well. Despite these few issues it sounds like you enjoyed the stay and the location of the property, which is nice to hear.
