Excellent acommodation and setting
Had a wonderful few dsys staying at Lakuna. House was perfect and very tidy. Great location and setting with birds, kangaroos and deer nearby. We all had a wonderful time.
Hi Heather. We appreciate your review of Lakuna Retreat and delighted to hear you had a most relaxing stay. Thanks for choosing to stay at Lakuna and we look forward to seeing you again at some time in the future. All the best. Regards Adrian and Corrie
Wonderful property. We were a family of six and this property had enough space for 4 teenagers and parents. Property is highly recommended.
Great house in the bush. Very comfortable furnishings.
Hi Joel. Thanks for your review of Lakuna retreat and delighted you had an enjoyable break at one of Halls Gaps most unique accommodation places. We look forward to hearing from you again in the future. Regards Adrian and Corrie Bekker
Delightful and contemporary property
It should be four and a half stars but we can't see that option to select! The house was snug and very comfortable with everything we needed for our family of four. The kitchen was really well equipped to whip up a big feast with great pans, utensils and appliances. Lots of firewood for the Coonara. Electric blankets, comfortable beds and cozy bedrooms. A large bathroom with spa. There was an additional self contained room which we didn't need but very sweet if you have a bigger group. Lots of native birds and animals came to visit. It's overlooked by the grand Grampians with the Pinnacle right above you. Quiet setting off the Main Street but right opposite Brambuk Cultural Centre and super close to the town. Highly recommended!
Thanks Nadja for your review of Lakuna and we are delighted that you have had such a great time. Thanks for choosing Ellimata Holiday cottages, and we look for ward to maybe another visit in the future. Keep in touch. Regards Adrian and Corrie.
Not as clean as it should be
Lovely house in an amazing area. We loved feeding the cockatoos Was let down by shoddy cleaners. There was what looked like vomit on the quilt Lucky there was clean quilt in cupboard
Needs a good dusting and bedside tables had spills from previous tenant Would stay again but only if it was up to health standards
Hi Julie. Thanks for your comments re Doonah and dust issue. We have acted on this very promptly with our cleaning staff and appreciate that you have drawn this to our attention. Our apologies for the inconvenience and rest assured that our staff will ensure that this is an isolated issue. We hope you will visit us again some other time. Regards Adrian and Corrie.
When looking for a property to stay we wanted three things, fireplace, spa and comfy couches.. We have a young child so in the event we were stuck in the house we wanted to be 'cozy'.. When we turned up late the house it absolutely stunk like smoke, granted there is a fireplace, however our own home which has a fireplace doesn't have this stench.
It was absolutely freezing so we started to get the fireplace going. Putting our young daughter to bed in 10 degrees wasn't ideal.
There was also an electric blanket in the bedroom which was not working.
When waking up in the morning I felt like I had been smoking "i am a non smoker" the smoke stench in the house was so overbearing...
We decided to give our child a bath that night then enjoy a spa, we started to fill the bath just enough to let her bath to discover we had very little hot water... knowing the house could sleep many adults we were so disappointed with the events.... in the morning my husband did check and the hot water had tripped the switch... so we didn't actually get to enjoy the house to the full potential.
The owners were lovely to deal with but I guess given I had paid the 'higher' rate for the location we were extremely disappointed with our stay.
Hello Sasha. We have just followed up your comments from recent stay at Lakuna retreat and must say we were disappointed that your were not completely satisfied by your visit as previous guests have always been very pleased with the quality and service provided by us. However on your visit there were some items that we were not aware of and a quick phone call to us would have quickly remedied the situation. We were able to repair the HWS promptly which had a faulty element resulting in a partial heating only of the unit. The electric blanket was replaced. We do have heaters in each room that can be turned on for comfortable room temp in matter of minutes. The wood heater smoke smell can occasionally occur during winter if windows are not opened to allow fresh air in. This is simply rectified. So all the comments made have been addressed and we would apologize for the inconvenience to you. We hope you will keep in touch for any future visits to Halls Gap. Than you again for your understanding. Regards Adrian & Corrie BEKKER
