Our Stay at The Pebble House
We loved the authenticity of this place.
Don't stay in winter
Quite disappointed. We booked for 2 nights and ended up leaving after the first night.
This house has insufficient heating to cope with a winter's night. There is a fireplace in the main room, which gives off very little heat and there is no other heating available. The door between the main room and the backroom is poorly hung and will only close 3/4 of the way. This meant cold air from the back of the house constantly came into the main room.
Lighting was a big issue. There was insufficient light to read after about 3 pm. We also found mouse droppings in the bedding and there is a strong stale smell in the front room.
The property looks inviting and is certainly quaint. We were very disappointed that the above issues prevented us from staying.
Dear Tony and Catherine,
I am disappointed to hear of your experiences at The Pebble House. When you texted that you left because of the cold and “among other things” I assumed these were personal reasons and did not wish to interfere. I would like to point out though, as described in the house notes, that there is a Coonara heater in the back room that heats the whole house very well. Even though it has been a cold winter. The house has been shut up for periods of time due to the weather which may contribute to a musty smell and it is very old needing some spring air. It has also moved due to drought, so the crooked door – which does close if given a shove. I am appalled at the notion of mouse droppings in the bedding, as I had made it myself and noted nothing. Nor have I seen evidence of mice – but it is possible so I will take action on that front. I do appreciate feedback and will note your concerns. However, the property description of The Pebble House makes it quite clear what type of accommodation it is. I am happy to refund you for the night you didn’t stay. Kind Regards,
The Pebble House
Unique, relaxing and unforgettable!
Overall a great relaxing time away in basic but perfect, historic cottage. Already planning to come back!
Well equipped and lovely place for a retreat, we would've liked to stay longer but even two nights was a great break.
We hadn't used a wood stove in a while so a few instructions on getting that started would've been great.
A little place in paradise.
Our family enjoyed our little holiday, it was a great experience for them to learn how people used to live. We all really enjoyed it. Thank you.
Thank you Sam. It was a pleasure to have you and your family. The Pebble House is made for kids imaginations I think. Janene
