Pros and cons

  • 3 of 5

Pros

- Enjoyable stay, particularly enjoyed the outdoor BBQ area and watching local birdlife.

- Plenty of space for group of 10.

- Air con throughout property was extremely efficient.

- Chosen for close location to many wineries.

Cons

- Rural setting compromised by being right next to owner's trailer/home and large amount of parked trailers/caravans/etc about 5 metres away with car parking space in between. This was in clear view from the back verandah and backyard that meant there was no privacy there and was an eyesore compared to the lovely country views elsewhere on property. However we didn't have much contact with owners during stay.

- Nowhere near enough toilet paper provided!

- Website says a breakfast hamper is provided but none was provided. There was tea and coffee facilities - is this meant to be the hamper?

- Dishwasher wasn't producing clean dishes.

Owner's Response: Natalie, thank you for taking the time to review your stay! We appreciate all comments both positive and negative as they allow us to improve as accommodation providers. We will submit your feedback to the owner to inspect and repair the dishwasher as required. We have also noted that only a small amount of toilet paper is supplied. Generally our properties supply only a start-up amount as our accommodations are all leased on a self-catering basis. In relation to the breakfast hamper, I have submitted this to the web development team to have removed as you are correct, only tea and coffee making facilities are supplied. We are pleased to hear that it was an overall enjoyable stay for your group and we hope that we may be able to assist again one day in the future. If we may assist with anything else, please let us know.

Spacious Property

  • 4 of 5

We needed a place big enough to cater for 4 couples as we were attending a family wedding. This place fitted the bill perfectly. Reasonably priced and very roomy.

As we have a young child this house was absolutely terrific. Olivia enjoyed playing with the dolls house so much that I had to buy her one. The was located in a quite area (which was great) yet not far from all amenities. Very pleased with the accomodation.
