Stay at Bowerbird
Property was overall pleasant. It was the little things that could be improved.
Eg towels and bath mats in bathroom very old, no dishwashing liquid in container. No spare toilet rolls.
Our stay at Bowerbird !
The property was great. Main bedroom mattress could do with updating otherwise comfy! The birdlife amazing, pity about the smoke but can’t help that!
Backed Up Bathroom
One of the toilets was backed up on the last night of our stay – which happened to be a long weekend – and started to overflow, even into some of the bedrooms. The property manager was lovely and prompt in her response however we were told that both bathrooms (and draining any water) would be out of action overnight because of where the blockage was and how it was closest to the main outlet.
It was mentioned that this wasn't the first time this had happened, and if that's the case, the owners should look into that. You can't keep renting a house out to large groups if the plumbing cannot handle large groups!
The plumber arrived early in the morning and we stayed back to make sure the issue was resolved before the next guests arrived. He let us know that in fact the clogged toilet would not have affected anything else as everything drained in the opposite direction (towards the back of the house).
Mostly these things are no ones fault but as mentioned, if this is reoccurring then perhaps the plumbing is not adequate for bookings of up to 12 people.
Tree, lake, sea and a great holiday house for old friends.
Stayed here last year and planned a return. Another restful, relaxing stay. Surfed, swam, ate BBQed fresh fish. Spectacular sunset from deck. Be careful of kookaburra it likes left over sausages. All 6 of us slept well. Used the firewood in shed to keep the potbelly going till late, late. Enjoyed new game Balderdash to have fun in the evenings. Glad to see the stylish new Moroccan styled bathrooms.
No Vodaphone in the area but Telstra works.
Nice comfortable accommodation , easy relaxing environment in a bush selling
On the whole was good,
A few problems with maintenance though,
1. Light over cooktop was not working
2. Light in fridge not working
3. If you need internet and mobile phone reception then you need to be on Telstra or Optus. Vodafone works if you get to the highest point in Smiths Lake.
4. If it is wet there are plenty of mosquitoes so you have to get indoors quick so take coils and insecticide
5. Only one tv for a large house and reception is poor if it rains. I didnt find ch10 tuned in either.
6 in the main bathroom there is no mirror over the hand basin so it is difficult to shave. There is a mirror in the secondary bathroom over the basin.
7. The frond door (around the back) can only be closed by using the deadbolt which is an annoyance.
The positives are that it is very well appointed, all kitchen tools are there as well as electrical appliances and dishwasher. Some you wont discover until you have been there a few days so you will get surprises.
Plenty of lounges to chill out and relax, not far to frothys coffee shop and lake where water activities can be done,
Overall good for large groups but you would need to amuse yourselves by constructing your own activities
