Holiday with your dog here!
Great place great location for a casual holiday with your furry friend near Bateman's Bay in a dog friendly house and near a dog friendly beach.
We having being using Stayz/Homeaway for over 10 years for regular trips to the coast with our family and dog. We are responsible pet owners and have never had any complaints from any of the other owners and we are always very careful to leave no mess.
This property is very tired looking. When we arrived it smelled musty. I opened up the doors and windows. (The curtains are a miss match on unsafe poles one of which fell on my head while opening) I then had to clean the fridge as it had not been cleaned. Then i went on to make our beds. The second bedroom isn't really a bedroom but more of a sun-room extension. Once i vacuumed up the dead cockroaches i then had to remove one of the mattress protectors from one of the Queen beds (there are 2 in this room) the protector was badly stained as was the mattress underneath. The other 2 queen beds had memory foam mattress protectors which also were also badly stained and required washing. I was unable to wash them as i thought it would take too long for them to dry and they were in slightly better condition than the actual mattresses underneath. We reluctantly slept on them. I checked out the back of the property before allowing my dog out and I found a sunken bath /water feature full of stagnant water. I therefore could not allow my dog in the back garden as he would have either drunk the water or tried to swim in it. This would also be a hazard for small children. The 4 chairs around the island bench were ripped. The shower screen was broken. I don't think we would have stayed at the property but we had an appointments over the weekend and with our dog it would have been difficult to get somewhere else at short notice. I tried to contact the owner on arrival but her phone number was blocked out. When I did contact her she agreed to refund our cleaning fee . She then changed her mind stating that her cleaner had said that we had left dog poo in the garden! As i mentioned previously we would never do this! But it's an easy accusation to make after we have left.
So no I would not recommend this property at least until the few thing mentioned were addressed. It's in a fairly good location but the beach nearby has a strict no dogs rule.
I have photographs to back up everything mentioned above.
We had a great summer holiday .
Great place for a summer holiday, air con. and a fridge that makes ice and cold water.
You can bring your dog and the beach is 200mts away.
good property to stay at
we found the property clean, every thing we needed for our stay , but
some chairs need to repaired inside , also we could smell dog smells in the lounge room , fly screens need to be replaced , also a fly screen door would be a good idea on door that leads out back from lounge room , eg sliding glass door
we did love the stay, position was great. view aup
While we did understand the reasons for it, the rules list was a bit off putting.
Great location and spacious
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - great locations, spacious, games for the kids and all the comforts of home - our pooch enjoyed it too.
