Great holiday house

  • 4 of 5

The house was in a great location and offered privacy and comfort. Plenty of room for all of us and the 2 seperate decks provided ample space for entertaining. A couple of things could bring this house to an even greater rating: a dishwasher, better glassware and cooking equipment to cater for large numbers and general maintenance of the garden and outdoor furniture. The access to the beach via the back gate was a real bonus and the short walk to the nearby shops, became a lovely morning routine to pick up the papers. We definitely enjoyed every minute of our stay and would certainly reconsider renting this house again.

Great Beach Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We loved our weekend away at Beach House 65 in October. The best feature is the easy walk to the beach straight out the back gate. The house is well kept and comfortable and a great place for children to run around and enjoy themselves. We recommend it and will certainly be back.

Great location and perfect for dogs

  • 4 of 5

The location of this property is fantastic, with a track leading to the beach from the back. It's also particularly good for dogs - fully enclosed yard with lots to explore. The deck was great to relax on when the sun was out.

I think that the property could do with a bit of a design overhaul. The main couch is rather uncomfortable/impractical and there's a lot of furniture in the living room that I don't think is required. Also - no toaster? There was a strong smell of moth balls in the main living space that was quite off-putting. A final comment would be to clearly mention in the advertisement what people need to bring (we didn't see any information about this). We weren't aware that towels were required, but thankfully had one in the back of the car.

With a few improvements, this accommodation could be even better and reach its full potential.

Owner's Response: Hi Katrina Thank you for your feedback. We have taken steps to address the issues you raise. As for the toaster, yes we do have one in the property. We've re-located it from the cupboard above the fridge to the kitchen bench to avoid any further confusion. Thanks once again. Regards Diana

Worse rental we ever had

  • 1 of 5

The only good thing about this place is the location. Everything else is a disappointment. I don't normally write review, but after seeing only good reviews, which has led me to book this place last summer, i don't want someone else making the same mistake. I'm not sure why there are good reviews, when the guess book has pages of disgusted comments dated years back?!

We stayed in Jan 2016 with 3 couples and 4 young children (aged less than 7).

These 3 "pods" are connected only by the deck as pictured.. uncovered, so when is raining, is a pain to get from one to the other.

To lock/unlock the doors is by key only. We were given ONE set of key!

The children sleeping pod is the first one by the gate, with the "living" pod far end of the house. When the children went to bed early, we have to either lock them in or leave their door unlocked and we had to take turn on checking on them...sometimes, by walking in the rain! Also, there are 2 sleeping pods, as such, the last one that goes to sleep gets the key and the other one sleep unlocked.

The kitchen.... not sure where to begin. Is dirty and utensils are so dirty that they might as well being picked up from a dump! With no dishwasher, first thing we did was sort out what can be used (ie. not rusted or broken or too much of irremovable food stuck on) and hand washed them all. We bumped into a family at the beach, and when they found out where we're staying they asked if the rusted fry pan with the broken handle is still there, sadly the answer was "yes". They rented there 2 years ago!!

We paid over $400 a night.. the most expensive place we ever paid in Venus Bay (we go there at least once a year, for the past 5 years). Is unfair to get that kind of money and not provide the very basics.

We've just booked in another place for this summer at Venus Bay, i can't help but feeling abit resentful when i see this place listed.

Wonderful holiday spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay at Beach House 65 in Venus Bay. The house is close to the beautiful beach, just walk along an easy track from the back of the house. It's was great to have the two separate living areas so everyone had space to themselves and could spend time together as well. We loved all the gardens around the house and were so happy we could bring our dog with us, so nice to stay in a lovely property that is dog-friendly. The whole weekend was bliss, we'll definitely book again!

THE BEST..... Beach House expirence

  • 5 of 5

WOW.... What an amazing Beach 'Shack' !!!

Private, Modern, fully equipped and the close to the beach, those were the criteria my partner and I wanted in a holiday rental, needless to say, Beach House 65 didn’t disappoint, in fact exceeded our expectations From our initial enquiries with the owners right up until our departure we felt our every desire was met willingly and happily.

The property itself was fantastic; actually the closest house on the street to the beach! The walking track to the beach felt like it was made just for us.

The layout of the two separate living and sleeping ‘pods’ was exactly what we needed…. kids to bed…. adults to unwind!!

Our stay at Beach House 65 has created some wonderful memories for us as a family and we have already booked for the same time next year!!

Thank you Beach House 65.
