As you pull into the winding driveway to Harry’s Hideaway, our luxurious Pottsville holiday home, you’ll have the sensation of entering your own private and tranquil oasis. The spacious home has a truly luxurious feel, boasting extensive, manicured and tropical gardens, high level fittings and fixtures and enjoying coastal and rural views from its stunning secluded position atop a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
The central part of the home is large and open plan with a modern and fully-equipped kitchen looking into the expansive lounge and dining area. The kitchen should contain all that you need, including a large oven with a five gas burner stove. The fridge is roomy and there is a microwave oven and a dishwasher. Three large windows slide open onto the deck area.
This four bedroom let comes with three double rooms and one twin room with two double beds, making this home ideal for a group of families going away together. Outside, you can enjoy breathtaking coastal views and an elegant, private swimming pool in the immense, beautiful garden.
This was a disappointing house that sadly failed to live up to the pictures and description. Despite being in a wonderful location and setting, the house was badly let down by being dirty and a little neglected. there were cockroaches throughout the house from our arrival and despite a spray they never left. The place had clearly not been properly serviced. There were food crumbs in drawers and dirt, dust and debris under every piece of furniture. The appliances were not to the standard you would expect; the dishwasher didn't wash properly, the oven merely warmed things, not cook them and the fridge struggled. The 4th bedroom was disappointing; the mattress was very poor and dirty and the room was strewn with dead and live insects.
The swimming pool was dirlty and the pool cleaner broken on arrival.
Given the wonderful setting and the nice open living areas and deck that this house has, it should have been a great place for a holiday, but it has clearly not been maintained properly and is dirty throughout. The price tag associated with it is not in keeping with the standard at all. Had great potential but fell very short.
