Great house and top location
We had a fabulous stay. The house was in a fantastic location, so close to the beach. Loved the water views from the deck. House was clean and comfortable, kitchen had everything you needed. Kids loved the big yard and the table tennis in the garage. We can wholeheartedly recommend this house, and we are already planning our next stay.
Perfect house, perfect holiday
We loved this place. It had that holiday feel from the moment we piled out of the car, and could suddenly hear the hum of the sea. Then, when we walked down the garden path, opened the front door, and saw straight through to the deck and the ocean, we could feel the stress just falling away.
The house is comfortable, unpretentious and nice and clean. The kids loved the bunk beds, the ping pong table out in the garage, the old-fashioned board games in the kids’ cupboard and the big yard where they could throw a ball and run around. Meanwhile, my wife and I loved chilling out on the deck. It’s where we hung out when we weren’t at the beach, whether for our morning cappuccino or our twilight glass of bubbly as we watched the amazing sunset. Even though it was a bit chilly in the evening, we all preferred to rug up and have dinner under the stars on the deck – it was truly magic!!
Another bonus was being able to go out into the garden and pick fresh herbs.
Sensational Seven Mile Beach is literally just a few metres away. A really safe beach for the kids, who thought the waves were just perfect for boogie boarding. Can’t wait to be back there. Thank you Diana for a wonderful stay.
Needed better maintenance
Although the property was in a good location to the beach I found the house to be quite poorly maintained. The mosquito nets were quite horrible with a thick layer of dust and unnecessary anyway. A lot of the other soft furnishings were also rather dusty. Unfortunately the dust exacerbated my grandchildren’s asthma! The windows were also very dirty. The hard surfaces were basically clean but I would have expected a house in better condition for the rental rate and I would be very wary of using your booking facility for any further bookings as you obviously have no control over the properties on your website.
Dasd asdas, I thank you for your comments. We are committed to providing a great stay for our guests, and take your comments seriously.
You are right that the mosquito nets are dust collectors, and that they are not usually needed anyway, as the property is fully screened. We had them there just for the odd mozzie that slips in occasionally when guests go in and out. However, we will either organise for them to be professionally cleaned (they disintegrate in the wash) or have them taken down, thanks to your suggestion.
Our cleaners are very thorough in their cleaning of the property, and part of their brief is to vacuum all lounges, sofa bed etc, which I can guarantee that they do after every guest departs. Not sure which soft furnishings you are referring to but will pass on your comments to our cleaners.
Sorry to hear that your grandchildren suffer from asthma. You may not have been aware that there was a dust storm in the Illawarra on the 6th March, the day before you checked in. The dust storm came with an alert for people with respiratory illnesses, including asthma. I respectfully suggest that this was the cause of the exacerbation of your grandchildren’s asthma that weekend, as the air was thick with dust on the 6/3, with residual dust hanging around for a number of days after that.
Regarding the windows, it was noted in the pre-check-in inspection of the property that the windows had been affected by the dust storm, but as you had been offered early access, we were unfortunately unable to organise for them to be cleaned at short notice on the morning of your arrival. Apologies for this. The windows have all now been cleaned.
Great place to relax
The location is great. It's just a 2 min walk to the beach. The house is well maintained and very spacious. We had a great time
Perfect Beach House
We thoroughly enjoyed our Easter weekend. Beautiful beach view, short 5min stroll to beach & lagoon. Safe for kids to wander the streets to milk bar. The house was clean, kitchen well stocked with utensils. Beds comfy & accommodated 7 of us comfortably. Plenty of blankets for cold nights. Bonus having kids hangout with table tennis in garage. So adults can have a quiet wine on patio overlooking the ocean. Booking was easy & Dianne answered my emails promptly. Highly recommended and would love to come back again.
