Lovely location but house needs some attention
We chose this property as it was beachfront and allowed pets.
The location was super. Can’t beat it.
Wonderful to have our two small dogs with us however please note this property is not fenced.
The house itself needs some
Maintenance. For example, the wooden doors are rotting, mould on the seat cushions, the carpets felt moist under foot, the washing machine and dryer are rusty, though they work.
There is no pantry for food, unless you take out the toaster and big old coffee machine.
The couch was old, and the TV was too high to watch at comfortable level.
The quality of the furniture and fixtures are 3 star.
The house has so much potential however I was disappointed with quality and cleanliness of the house.
Having lived in houses very close to the salt water I don’t think the owner can use the location as an excuse . Being so close to the salt water means that maintenance needs to be done more regularly.
I would stay here again if the house gets a bit of attention.
Great Beach Location
Great spot, great views, just needs a bit of love around the property
Best position in Byron
We have just had 5 nights staying in this great beach house. Absolutely loved every minute of it. So open, spacious, views, views, views.
We can't wait to visit again!
We recently stayed at the Childe street property and it was a fantastic holiday. The accommodations were even more beautiful than pictured and the service was above and beyond our expectations.
The property was clean and welcoming.
Please share our thanks with your staff. We can't wait to visit again!
Amazing location, shame about the house itself
Cannot fault the location, it is sensational. The sunrises are spectacular and sunsets just as beautiful. Such a shame the owners have not put a cent into maintaining the property itself. At the price we paid per night in low season (winter) I would expect significantly more. Had it not been for the location, we would have stayed one night and then tried to find something else. The state of the property put a real dampener on our getaway. Where do I begin.... Multiple light globes require replacing which for a house with so few lights, due to the corrugated iron ceiling, is a big issue. I had to move a lamp to the lounge room just so we were able to see while sitting in the lounge area at night. Blankets not laundered, smelled musty. Not sure when the last time the rugs were moved so the floor underneath could be vacuumed/cleaned but they were extremely dirty/sandy. Poor quality and mismatched glassware and crockery, no sharp knives or scissors, making any sort of cooking difficult. Kitchen appliances dirty and dated - had to clean out the kettle before using due to the scale build up, cupboards and drawers not wiped clean inside. Bathrooms tired and dated with corroded tap ware and mould in the grout. Bifold/Sliding doors in desperate need of repair - not able to be locked properly due to wood rotting, extremely difficult to slide - one door was so stuck it took two of us to slide it closed. Odd furniture placement and too much of it eg 10 dining chairs for a table that only fits 8, so two chairs had to sit awkwardly in doorways. Two arm chairs in the lounge area that sat up against a wall of French doors designed to be opened but couldn’t be accessed without rearranging the furniture. Layout of the house meant you had to lock every door from the outside at night time in order to secure the property. Beds very small (a double in the master bedroom!?!) and poor quality polyester filled pillows and bedding. Ensuite in master not stocked - one roll of toilet paper which left us trying to unlock other bathrooms in the dark trying to find more. Smoke alarm in master disconnected and left sitting in a drawer in the ensuite. Bath plug broken. A damp quilt cover left in the dryer to go musty. And that is without even mentioning the dated interiors - silver textured floor to ceiling wall paint? Need I say more? With more and more luxury holiday home rental options at this price point now available, I would suggest these owners need to pick up their act and spend some of the rental income they are raking in on maintaining their property. If you are someone who enjoys hotel level luxury then do not stay here, you will be disappointed.
Thank you for your feedback and suggestions,
We have taken everything you said into consideration and are working closely with the owner to address the above.
Unfortunately as the property is directly exposed to salt air from the beach, maintenance is an ongoing item at that property and something we are always working at to ensure the property is up to standard.
Many of these items have been addressed now and /or will be complete in the near future

Excellent property and first class location
Probably the best location at Belongil - great property for families - only gripe is that the back three bedrooms could be a little
Larger but the main bedroom is amazing and the common areas and kitchen first class - great holiday
