This house was very disappointing, Considering the price... the soft furnishing were very dirty old and stained and the cushions stunk. The yard is in disrepair, long grass, cigarette buts everywhere, full ashtrays. front BBQ does not work and The back BBQ half the knobs are missing. I was embarrassed that the house I booked Was so dirty and dusty. So if you are looking for value for money look elsewhere. I did not contact the owner regarding the state of the house because short of an industrial clean there would be nothing that could resurrect this house. Not to mention that there was someone living in the garage, I think this would be something that should be stated at the time of application. Some positives there was plenty of firewood, the beds were fairly comfortable . Close to shops, outlook over the water very nice.
A Deplorable Property
We checked out on the same day as we checked in (before securing an alternative property for our holiday), which speaks for our review of this property. My family paid for 6 nights and ended up paying additional 6 nights for another property (at the same rate), which provided us a property which is worlds apart in terms of quality and cleanliness. This property condition is very different from what is shown in the pictures. We did not bother to ask the owner to make good, as in our opinion the condition of the property was not something that could be ratified. If i have one word to describe this property, it would be "Deplorable".
I urge the property manager to make good the property (to the glory of what it could be, given its location) before listing it for rental again.
Sook Yee T I would call deplorable. She did not stay at the property as she left a review for a property on the same day she was to go into mine, but some 200+ and more than 3 hour drive away. Odd seeing she did not arrive at mine until 11, without the rest of her group.
I believe that the party had changed itinerary. She took 6 photos, wrote to HomeandAway to state that their were only 3 bedrooms in the property (their are 4 and the sunroom makes a fifth that can take a bed). I only had to point H&A to the photos I have posted to show I was correct.
She had 2 main greifs
1. She also took 3 photos of pickled lemons in a jar calling them "toxic waste". Incidentally they won first prize in the school fair in which they were put in.
2. Bark left in the woodbox after she had emptied the wood from it.
What was even more odd was that she states that she arrived at the home at 11, took the photos and went as it was unlivable (due to the toxic waste) and bark in the box.
Here are some of the messages between us
Sook "You do not keep preserved stuff in the cabinet when you lease out. " I agree i am proud of Tasanian culture and it should have been out on show not in a cupboard out of her way that she has to take it out and take photos!
It also seems that she was ropable that when she took the wood out of the woodbox their were some twigs left behind. Good for kindling I say.
Honestly it is a wood box.
You have sent me 3 photo's of my preserved lemons. I am not sure why. Which you state that you had to take out of storage to take a photo of?
So the rest of the house was 99% correct then?
We take note of all complaints and work on them. I am not sure if I can get the wood brushed by the cleaner though before she puts it in the wood box. Nor am i going to throw the nice jar of lemons out. I may just eat them though!
Lives up to the name!
What an amazing stay we had. It really is the ultimate beach house! We highly recommend the house and Kingston Beach as a base for exploring Hobart. We all wished we could have stayed for 2 months not just 2 nights! Thank you so much for your hospitality.
We loved our stay in this wonderful home,the beds were so comfortable,the kitchen had everything you could possibly need,the house was very clean, wonderful views of the beach, and the mountain,great location to travel the south of the state,and great restaurants and coffee shops less than a minutes walk,hope to return!
Perfect holiday house
The location was amazing, close to all amenities, this house had everything you could ask for for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The only thing to complain about is the spa not functioning properly and kept tripping out at the fusebox repeatedly. So spa could not be utilised.
The Beach house is just a great place to lay back and relax. We keep a stock of kayaks, scooters, bicycles should you have an interest in any of these as well as golf clubs, tennis raquets and other recreational activities that you can do on the beach
