Nice comfortable accommodation , easy relaxing environment in a bush selling
On the whole was good,
A few problems with maintenance though,
1. Light over cooktop was not working
2. Light in fridge not working
3. If you need internet and mobile phone reception then you need to be on Telstra or Optus. Vodafone works if you get to the highest point in Smiths Lake.
4. If it is wet there are plenty of mosquitoes so you have to get indoors quick so take coils and insecticide
5. Only one tv for a large house and reception is poor if it rains. I didnt find ch10 tuned in either.
6 in the main bathroom there is no mirror over the hand basin so it is difficult to shave. There is a mirror in the secondary bathroom over the basin.
7. The frond door (around the back) can only be closed by using the deadbolt which is an annoyance.
The positives are that it is very well appointed, all kitchen tools are there as well as electrical appliances and dishwasher. Some you wont discover until you have been there a few days so you will get surprises.
Plenty of lounges to chill out and relax, not far to frothys coffee shop and lake where water activities can be done,
Overall good for large groups but you would need to amuse yourselves by constructing your own activities
It's easy to write negative comments and be faceless so I won't go overboard; I'd like to say that this was a 5 star venue but 3.5 stars is more realistic. It was very relaxing and Smiths Lake certainly is a sensational place to unwind. It's a gateway to the gorgeous Seal Rocks and Bluey's Beach too. I feel that the description of this house need to be adjusted however to reflect actual findings. It's a very physical walk to the lake from the house if you have Kayaks, not the suggested "moments to the water" - which is promoted so you're expecting differently and want to take Kayaks etc if you have them. The walk though is quite hard when towing water toys and I'm pretty fit. Not to mention the plague of Mozzies (which is no one's fault) that mother nature has sent there. Only bring that up because you also can't use the great balcony when your being eaten alive by them.
The house is comfortable and the bathrooms nicely renovated. So overall, a little overpriced for what you get but then that's holidaying in Australia.
We enjoyed our stay, the home is spacious and located in a great part of Smiths Lake
We loved this home and would stay again
Absolute ripper house, in a top spot!
Was the second time staying here, was good to see the place was freshened up after a few renovations. Comfortable, open house to get away with friends or family and in a nice quiet location.
Would recommend to anyone.
Beautiful rustic accomodation close to nature, fantastic house layout
Our stay at Smiths lake was better than we expected, that part of the coast this time of the year with the whales is truely magical
The location we stayed at was brilliant and just far enough away from the hustle and bustle to really relax
The beds were comfortable and the kitchen amenities were really tastefully renovated
The fireplace is a great touch and gives you that homely feeling
We will definitely return, hopefully sooner rather than later
A very realxing house
We stayed with 5 adults and 1 toddler for 3 days - and could not have had booked a better place to chill.
Lots of beautiful beaches with all kind of surf levels in short driving distance and the lake just at the bottom of the hill.
The house somehow radiates a relaxing atmosphere. Only thing that would be good to know beforehand: Very weak (optus) or no (Vodafone) network coverage in the whole area (just weak temporary Vodafone pocket near the general store and the Seal Rocks lighthouse).
But shutting down the phones for the stay contributed to the relaxation.
