Comment on Deweyshack
A relaxing stay in beautiful surrounds, set back from the road, so we didn't even hear a car go by. Perfect place for a break and well positioned for the beach.
House needs a good clean and refresh
Unfortunately this property did not meet our expectations of cleanliness and functionality given the weekly rental cost of the property. Furnishings and fittings are grubby and not working. Problems include the screen coming off the back door so mosquitoes get in, doors not shutting well or locking, unclean and stained cushions and doona covers and mould growing in the shower (we could not face using that area). The latch on the deck gate was not working and was tied shut with a tatty and fraying piece of rope. Rugs in all rooms and matting in the kitchen are stained and worn out and while the fence along one side of the property looks secure there is some length of very makeshift fencing on the other side which we didn’t trust to keep our small dog safe. The toilet seat in the main bathroom is loose and requires fixing. One of the provided fans does not work. Added to this was a very grubby cutlery draw which I cleaned so we could use it, a filthy plate left in the dishwasher and a dirty mug in the cupboard. We were taken in by the photos on HomeAway which do not accurately reflect the current presentation. Luckily the weather was fantastic and we spent most of our time out at the beautiful beaches nearby. Some hard work cleaning and repairing with attention to detail and replacement of soft furnishings and floor coverings would do a great deal to make this property worth what is charged for it. More importantly it would help holiday makers, who look forward for weeks to their yearly break, enjoy their stay. The property is described as “rustic” but this should not be an excuse for unclean and badly maintained.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 nights at Deweyshack. Very cosy, comfortable and quiet.
Deweyshack is very cosy, comfortable and quiet
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and our dog loved the huge backyard! Kioloa is surrounded by beautiful beaches. We are definitely returning to Dewey shack
Glad you had a great time, do come back soon.
Charming, rustic shack
We loved our stay at the Deweyshack and so did the pets. Plenty of room for pets and children to run around the backyard. Space for all of us and some nice modern upgrades too. The back deck made for a nice BBQ and the fireplace for a snug evening indoors. Perfectly located, close to the beach and shops. Thanks for having us!
Cosy cottage and close to the beach. Great size backyard for the dogs
Great cosy cottage. Close to the beach. Big back yard for the dogs. A big tick from us.

Lovely place, close to both Merry and Kioloa Beaches.
