Recommended family entertainer

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and comfortable. It was great having children's play area where we could keep an eye on them from both BBQ and dining room. Loved the character of this older style home and the location was perfect. We will definitely be back!

Hop, skip, nightmare!!!

  • 1 of 5

BBQ dirty and not cleaned

Toxic chemicals in children's play area

Beds collapsed

Rude and unprofessional agent!

Do not stay here!

Owner's Response: I am happy our location was rated so highly. These guests were determined to get a free stay. They refused to allow cleaner access to the BBQ, which unfortunately was overlooked prior to their stay. They were offered a full refund when they began complaining, which they declined, so the property must have ticked enough boxes for them to want to stay! Additionally we did not deduct bond for the broken bed. We would not recommend them as guests.

Great place for team building

  • 4 of 5

Had to vacuum the mattresses when we arrived as they were a bit dirty... other than that everything was fine. Good value for money. Not too many frills to distract us so we could focus on team building. Great location right next to a field that hosts a market on the Saturday we were there. Less than 100m away from a nice secluded beach area. We'd definitely come back.

Lots of room

  • 4 of 5

Lots of room for our large family. Loved the massage chair and outdoor shower. Very clean and comfortable with everything you could need. Washing machine hose and laundry ceiling need some attention but otherwise all good.
