Not as advertised
The photos online gave off an impression of a clean, well kept property. However in reality it was disappointing with a poor, rickety house design and flimsy furniture. The larger bed on the first floor is extremely creaky and the bathroom on the top floor bedroom leaked throughout the night until it spilled into the bedroom in the morning. The owner was also very passive aggressive in her communication with us during the stay which made us feel unwelcome and burdensome during our stay. Overall good location but would not recommend staying at this place.
This is a flimsy review from guests that in one night stay, managed to break the outdoor table and one toilet cistern.
On top of that they realized that the cistern was loosing water the night before but they only sent as a message prior to departure. None of the 11 guests was able to turn off the water tap from the toilet to avoid any further damage. Lucky we do have PVC floor and we did not have more damage. It was also not a big flood, mainly the bathroom floor and 1 meter over the door.
The house is very well built and it has a lot of character. The pictures are up to date. Regarding the comment that the owner was "passive aggressive", I do not really understand what the guests mean. I met the guests once and everything was nice and friendly and when the guests described the leaking toilet, I realized that he did not have any idea of what was going on.
" he said that it was leaking from an obscure location and there was a sponge placed there by someone else because of the problem'. I just replied that someone broke the cistern mechanism from the top. In the obscure location is just the tap to turn off the water and the sponge is to clean the bathroom. Sorry if this sounds " passive aggressive" but I was only saying facts. Things that anyone can see and should see in case of emergency. Just common sense. I guest the guest did not like to accept his mistake and he opted to give us a bad review and put a negative description.
Nice view of Jervis Bay
Good value for money if you are looking for a place for a large family gathering or a group of friends. It is very private and quiet and in a convenient location only a 5 minute walk to the Vincentia shops. There is a lovely glimpse of the bay through the swaying palms and the garden is nice. While clean and warm with everything we needed, the house is very basic, with a tired feel despite the lovely new kitchen. There isn't a continuity of the Bali feel in the dark timbered walls and mismatched furniture and curtains. Showers were hot and the upstairs bed was very comfortable but another in the downstairs bedroom squeaked on every movement.
Jenny, thanks for your review. I am glad you enjoyed the Bali Hut and the magnificent garden. You also loved the location, close to the beach and the shops. Good that you liked our new kitchen that it is incredible luxury and modern. But you said that the house is very "basic". I am not sure if I can agree with you? What is your comparison? Basic in comparison with other holiday houses in the area??? Not, at all. We have a fully self contained house, with all amenities. On top of that free WIFI. hammock o the deck. There are timber walls on the top floor and at the entrance, the big room. and in the bathrooms. We are not prepared to paint the timber as it is very unique and natural. But maybe it is not your taste. Also the Bali atmosphere you can see through the house too. The furniture is very good quality as we need to cater for a lot of guests. The beds are very comfy. We have painted the walls that do not have timber and we put new wardrobes and new floor. We changed a lot in this house, we spent more money than we made it, We take great care and we can do what we are doing because we live local. The garden is a passion, a lovely place to relax and dream. We have just purchased two new timber pieces for the garden that look great at the back. All in all, your review was not too bad, but the score does not represent your positive feedback. Maybe another day, you will score it better.
We had a nice time at this place! The owners are really nice and give a lot of information when you arrive. You have a really nice view on the bay and the garden is really nice to sit down and have a barbecue!
Had a wonderful stay in this very unique property. Complete amenities just as what was listed on the advertisement. Lovely home that makes you really feel away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Very relaxing and cozy. Would definitely come back to this place.
Frederick, thank you so much. You were lovely guests and I do appreciate the way you left the house and your kind review. We have been working very hard in the house to make it an unique place. Looking forward to have you again among our guests. Alex
