A wonderful getaway
We had a wonderful weekend as a family in this beautiful home with all things exactly as the advertisement. We felt the owners took trouble to anticipate our needs and catered for a stay that made it memorable. The house was beautiful and well located with a lovely balcony. We were very happy with what we got.
Thank you Anna for being lovely guests. We're so happy you had a nice family weekend away. Until next time, safe and happy travels. Cheers Loretta.
Not worth the money :(
After reading the description of the property and confirming the location, it seemed like the perfect choice for total comfort and relaxation.
We also did our own research before deciding where to stay and the property appeared really well presented with impressive photos. We felt confident that in choosing the property we were sure this would be the family holiday we were hoping for. My father has some health issues, and it was the break we all needed.
Upon arrival we were greeted by a dirty old spa with brown water in the base, surrounded by building rubble. The lounge was very dirty and stained, we ended up vacuuming out the food and crumbs we could see in between the cushions.
The property was advertised as ‘stunning’ ‘and recently renovated’. It appears to only be half renovated.
We were charged a premium rate and were very shocked and disappointed that the property was not up to standard - bedroom doors didn’t close; wardrobes were old and dusty; bunk bed frames were grubby and old and there was a blood stain on the doona cover; taps were loose; curtains in the bedrooms didn’t close properly; cockroaches in the kitchen; games room was only accessible from outside and was dusty and full of spiderwebs; No air-conditioning in bedrooms.
The second day we were there was a very hot day of 38 degrees. Very disappointed that there was no air-conditioning for the bedrooms. The pedestal fans do nothing in heat like that, the bedrooms heated up to a very uncomfortable temperature and we were all forced out to the lounge area overnight to cool down. The house didn’t fully cool down for a few days.
We have rented beach houses in previous years which were very clean, temperature controlled and up to standard for a lot less than what we paid for this property. Very disappointing :(
The guest has decided to publicly vent erroneous information 2 weeks after staying at our lovely Rye home. We find her review personally quite offensive, disturbing and quite frankly spiteful which speaks volumes about the guest. During the time spent at our home, the guest made absolutely no contact whatsoever to advise of any concerns. As per the review title, the guest may be experiencing buyers regret and expects a champagne lifestyle on a lemonade budget.
All previous reviews have been nothing less than 5*, so I am not sure what the guest can hope to achieve with her quite frankly unhelpful commentary. This is more a reflection of the guest than the property.
No mention of the lovely balcony views, no mention of the new large outdoor blinds installed to shield the setting sun. No mention of the fact that we don’t claim to have bedrooms with air-conditioning, so how can the guest expect air-conditioning to magically appear at her behest? Very puzzling?
This guest has no previous HomeAway reviews and is now stuck with this incredibly dishonest and unhelpful review.
Other hosts should be wary of this guest.
Some guests simply can never be pleased.
Great location! Very short walk to the beach and shops.
The open plan living room and great balcony are perfect for entertaining.
Thank you for your lovely comments. cheers.
We had a wonderful holiday at L’Ciabot- it’s a lovely house and we were very grateful for the generous and warm approach of the owners- nothing was too much trouble. The view of the bay was stunning and on a clear day, you could see right across to the Melbourne skyline- New Year’s Eve was spectacular! We have no hesitation in recommending this property.
Hi Rohan. thank you for this lovely review. It's always great to hear that guests have had an awesome time. You are welcome back any time. cheers Loretta
Beautiful property with a stunning view
Great property for a weekend away with friends or family. The property was a comfortable stay for our group of 8. Our friends loved it. Is an ideal property to entertain. The home was beautiful, open, relaxing and comfortable. Great location with a convenient short stroll from the shops. Kitchen was very well equipped. Beds were comfortable. Loved the open living area and deck looking out to the marvellous relaxing view. Would come back any day!
Great location! Very short walk to beach front, shops and restaurants. Its a very quiet and peaceful area. Large open plan layout makes it easy to entertain and loved having meals on the balcony balcony setup!
