Amazing Place for Weekend Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for two nights over the weekend with my family. It was a great place! Everything we needed for a comfortable stay, and super close to the beach! Only a short drive to the main town and I loved that it was pet friendly. Will definitely be back, thanks for having us!

Nice place but things a miss

  • 2 of 5

When we arrived at Beach Gum and opened the front door we found a nice and comfortable two bedroom place with a great view over the beach. The location to the beach was fantastic and we took our dog many times.

However on closer inspection (as another reviewer has specified):

- there were dead bugs laying around in corners of the room and the spa bath

- the sliding door was virtually impossible to open (I hurt my back trying to open), and

- there were black covers (BBQ?) laying on the deck.

On return of our two night stay I emailed Beach Gum and reported these problems to be told that I should have reported them when we were there. But who wants to have owners / cleaners / tradies in your room during such a small trip? These things just shouldn't happen for the price paid.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback Jenny, it's always appreciated to make sure we can present the property in the best way possible for our guests. Our housekeeping team generally do a terrific job but they are only human and sometimes things get missed, it's not on purpose! That's why we always ask guests to alert us on arrival if there is anything we can do to make their stay more enjoyable.

Really enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

Great location, well equipped kitchen, good sized rooms. The only minor issue is the sliding doors onto the deck are extremely difficult to open and close.
