Comfortable and neat
Will be quite nice once updates are complete
Disappointments at every corner
Good location. Close to one mile beach. Can see ocean from the back verandah. The inside bathroom is newly renovated, but slightly unfinished. Shower mixer was installed wrong (hot was cold and cold was hot). Most, if not all, flyscreens in the house had holes in them or weren’t there at all. A lot of us were getting bitten by mosquitos and swatting flies. Bedroom ceiling fans and lights work from a remote which I had to get the owners maintenance man to assist with. It has a ‘knack’ to the remote, so I was continually helping others to hold the remote in a way that would make it function. Kitchen is terrible. Feels dirty to cook in, and one wall is all patched up, probably ready to renovate. Half used condiments and old cuppa soups left in cupboards and fridge. Sleeps 10, but not even 10 sets of cutlery. One wine glass in cupboard was broken all the way around the rim and cut the bride-to-be’s finger as she washed it up (because it was too dirty to use). One of the top bunk beds doesn’t have a ladder or access to it, so we couldn’t use it unless we wanted to Spider-Man our way up, or get a step ladder. Had an iron in hallway cupboard but no ironing board (which would easily fit in a bedroom wardrobe). Downstairs garage would probably be fun for teenagers or kids, but pretty much useless for an adult gathering. It’s just a garage with stuff in it, with an old bathroom adjoining. The metal spiral staircase that leads from the back verandah to the garages is scary and dangerous. If a 25 year old isn’t comfortable going down there, I doubt any others will use it either. There was a ute (which belonged to Maintenance man) that was left parked across at least 2 out of 4 of the garage doors, which made it very awkward to park our cars. We could fit 2, before we started parking each other in. We also had to buy our own toilet paper, and I had to wipe down surfaces and dust because that hadn’t been done. The windows and mirrors had finger smears all over and hadn’t been cleaned in a seemingly long time. This house was for a bride and her friends to stay at before the wedding, and the owner knew this. Photos are deceiving. Much more effort should be put into any kind of rental property. Will not stay here again.
Position of the property was great. The house is old needs updating .not good for young children.
This was meant to be a family holiday to get away and relax as my husband has a terminal illness wasn't impressed with some things in the house, was disappointed that I had to make beds after a long drive. The TV was not working properly, the BBQ was dirty and the facilities in the kitchen weren't up to scratch. I had to go to the shops to purchase fry pan and tongs as the ones supplied were disgusting.Only 1 tea towel for a week. The bathroom has been updated but has nowhere to hang a towel no bench space and only one bathmat for 8 people for a week. My daughter in law was verbally abused by the owner accusing us of having a party. The party was 2 doors up. He did come back later in the day to apologise when he realised he was wrong. I wouldn't recommend to a young family as it is quite dangerous on the veranda and also the front entrance is extremely slippery with wet shoes or feet. Overall the position of the house was good and we had a nice holiday as we made do with what we had.
Fantastic and perfect even in the wet weather!!
House was perfect for our stay for the weekend and close the the wedding we went up for from blue mountains! Debbie is amazing host and so easy to communicate with. Definitely be coming back and hopefully get to stay & enjoy the place longer. Thankyou Debbie x
Great place for a family stay
The location was great and super friendly owners. Beds were comfy and the view was spectacular. Only complaint was the second toilet/shower does not have an internal access and with a large group you tend to run out of hot water for the day. But for a family of 5 there was plenty of hot water. We would stay again.
