I"m a retired design engineer and spent my career working in NSW, the ACT, England and Malaysia. My guiding principle is to make sure everything is just right, no surprises and safety first. My wife and I both undertake an inspection and clean of Elandra after each stay to ensure it is presented to the standard our guests are paying for.
Martin purchased this House in 2004
Why Martin chose Tuross Head
We were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary with a week staying in a vacation home in Tuross Head when we stumbled upon Elandra and decided to buy it. We had actually put an offer on another property which was devoid of views when I found Elandra hidden away in the agent's sales catalogue. It was weird but the vendor had specified it be listed secretly and so most buyers were unaware it was on the market. Four weeks later it was ours and we have listed it with Stayz since 2005. Thousands of guests have enjoyed Elandra since then. It really lends itself to being a vacation rental.
What makes this House unique
The view, sound and scent of the Pacific Ocean from the top deck coupled with the open plan living and two kitchens sold us on Elandra. It became a must have property purchase and cost more than we had initially wanted to spend but the benefits have paid off as we still love it years later and repeat guests attest to that being a shared feeling.
100% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Very Enjoyable Stay
Excellent. I will be recommending Elandra to my friends.
Absolute value for money
Martin was very easy to deal with. His responses to any communication were very quick. Martin was very flexible with our many requests and gave us some great tips. Great place for a family get together. We often had 16 adults upstairs and it never felt crowded. Would recommend to anyone. Pauline
Beautiful location and spacious house that is good for a group.
Comfortable, lovely outdoor spaces, great location right near the beach, golf course and shops.
We enjoyed our stay at Elandra which was close to a beach, the ocean walkway and walking distance from the local country club. We were a little disappointed that the upper and ground level accommodation are joined by an outside staircase so children put to bed downstairs were too isolated from adults wanting to be together upstairs. The lack of an internal staircase should be made obvious on the site. Others may find this an advantage if wishing to have a point of separation where families choose to remain more separate. The house was child friendly however with several comfortable living areas and a deck. The backyard was safely enclosed and lawn well maintained. Our use of this was only restricted by the swooping magpie which was a nuisance to all.
Presumably we scored low on cleanliness because the dishes were not too clean. We cleaned Elandra ourselves prior to and after this stay. We washed the dishes in the dishwasher before the stay and they were sparkling. After the stay we found unclean dishes in the cupboard so put them all into the dishwasher which failed to operate. The error code suggested the under-sink water inlet valve was turned off. Upon checking this was found to be the case. Somehow, someone in this guest's party shut off the under-sink valve supplying the dishwasher grrr. Presumably another guest came back a while later and unpacked a dishwasher full of unwashed stuff and then give us a poor cleaning score. Very glad for the puzzling low score as it made us search for, find, and rectify the problem that was not of our making.
Great place for family holiday
The house is very well located, just minutes walk to sandy beaches and beautiful ocean side walks. The house is comfortable and well looked after, and we had no problem fitting our whole group of 12. Lots of things for everyone to do. The property owners were very accommodating too - thanks!
Excellent Beach House Getaway
Enjoyed the stay, plenty of room for a large family - short walk to beach - lovely quiet location.
