Best Stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay and holiday. The owner checked on us once when we came and a day later took us on a ride on his boat on the river. We had our privacy throughout our stay. House is big and comfortable with big fridge, no mobile connection helped as we could focus on relaxing. Will return soon.

Worst Holiday ever

  • 1 of 5

Never stay at a place when the OWNER lives 100 meters away

When booking our holiday I entered 4 adults and 2 children on the Stayz website, it gave me a quote. I changed the booking to 8 adults but there was no change in the price, so booked for the 4 adults and 2 children.

On the first night my 3 adult children came down to stay for one night and when I returned from the river the owner was standing in the doorway obviously counting people. The kids went home the next day and had two other friends’ visit for the night, so while cooking breakfast (no decent pans for pancakes had to use the BBQ) he approaches me again and tells me I had more than I had booked, so I told him about the booking experience with Stayz. He wasn’t listening and told me there was an ATM in Renmark and I could pay him Cash

This explained why he was so active on his motorbike around the house for most of our stay (only the 4 adults and 2 children remained, but he had to watch us). Then while we were going to the riverfront we drove past him and he waved and chased us down to the river to hassle me again about how many we booked.

We felt very uneasy on our holiday due to his actions and paid him the gap even though the website doesn’t allow you to book different numbers of people for the nights we stayed and the quote didn’t change when I entered 8 people.

When I paid and asked for a receipt he said he would bring it over in the morning, and even though he was 100 meters away he couldn’t manage to give us one within the 14 hours prior to our departure.

So if you like being watched and rolling into the middle of the bed to be close to your loved ones, then this is the place to go.

Owner's Response: Fortunately in the past 8 years of opening up our beautiful property and holiday house we have had many positive experiences with our guests and have many repeat customers returning for holidays We are upset to hear that you did not enjoy your stay We have a price for our accommodation and guests state exactly how many people are staying prior to arrival so that payment for their accommodation reflects days and number of guests staying. We provide a fully self contained holiday house and have a complete set of saucepans, frying pan as well as an electric frying pan for guests to use. Our holiday house is situated on a working farm and the motorbike is used often to check irrigation and stock on the property. We will continue to be very passionate about our property and the service that we offer as reflected in previous reviews and our excellent ratings We welcome our guests to come and enjoy the peace and tranquility of our beautiful accommodation

Extremely clean and well appointed

  • 4 of 5

Whilst we thoroughly enjoyed our time at the property we booked thinking we were staying in Renmark. It wasn't until directions were forwarded to us that we found out we were actully 30kms further on than Renmark. The bowling trip we were on was played over Berri, Renmark and Barmara. We got allocated Barmara so therefore a 120km round trip, so we found that inconvenient. Perhaps it should be mentioned on the booking site the house it actually 30 kms outside Renmark so people can make their own decisions. Nothing wrong at all with the house - wonderful! and Leith was very helpful so we did enjoy our time there.

Excellent property

Very comfortable and spacious character home with everything we needed and much more...The large secure area was a fantastic bonus with the river just at the back yard. We enjoyed every moment we stayed there, the sunrise , sunset. My family , with the three children had a lovely holiday there. HIGHLY recommend!!!
