Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved Boston Beach House! VERY clean, spacious, modern furniture and not at all run down. Everything provided down to the cling wrap in the kitchen. Great. garden and location. We stayed all over SA and Vic for several weeks and this was by far the best place. This house has such a fantastic feel to it.

We stayed January 2016....but I can't select that.

Lovely Family Property

We found this property to be a lovely place for our family getaway over the school holidays. Well organised, clean an cosy place to stay at. Kitchen had everything that you could possibly need or want to prepare an bake all meals. Great open lounge/living room, Quite large bedrooms, Big backyard with enough space to entertain plus for kids to enjoy the out doors. Overall this property was the perfect place for us!! Thanks Beth & Tony

Needs a Major Update, Very shabby and Tired

  • 1 of 5

The place needs a major update, the lounges were so old and saggy, they were really uncomfortable. The TV remote didn't work, replaced batteries, still didn't work. Flyscreen on sliding door had huge rip in it , so mozzies and flies kept getting in. Backyard was not inviting at all, rusty old swing set, garden all overgrown and scrubby, doesn't look cared for. Someone had mowed the lawn and the grass clippings were left all over the lawn, so whenever you walked on it , you tracked grass into the house, nowhere to sit outside, BBQ took up 2/3rds of the balcony so nowhere to sit there either. Outdoor Security Light was left lying on the floor of the balcony in front of the BBQ !!! . Front Security door lock is broken, so it kept locking us out, wouldn't open with the key, so had to get in via rear door when we first arrived - not a good first impression. The bed in the room next to the kitchen was really unstable, moved every time one of us turned over. They charge a $50 cleaning fee - would love to know where that goes, coz the place was not clean, cobwebs, dust, the wall behind the rubbish bin in the kitchen had a huge splash mark on it where the previous occupants had obviously missed the bin and hit the wall. There were NO instructions for how to use the TV, NO instructions for how to use the Aircon/Heater.

Would not recommend this place until it has had a major major overhaul and a some new furniture put in. Also said it was dog friendly - but dogs must stay outside at all times - there was NO SHELTER for the dogs, nowhere outside for them to sleep undercover, nowhere for them to shelter from the cold winds, rain or hot sun - would have preferred they said not dog friendly. (there was a hole cut into the side of the house - underneath the house? It was just dirt floor, This was full of rubbish and had a huge breeze blowing through it - if that is their idea of a dog shelter, then they seriously need to rethink that one.

They are charging TOP DOLLAR for this place, if it was only $80- $90 per night , then maybe it would be reasonable but not $130+ per night in that poor condition.

We have stayed in Many places in Goolwa and this would be the worst so far.

Owner's Response: As the property owners of Boston Beach house we feel this is an inaccurate and misinforming review on our holiday home and feel we must reply to set things right. We do ask guests to report any maintenance issues so we can arrange for things to be fixed before the next set of guests arrive, we strive to offer the same standard to all guests...its disappointing to hear about a couple of small issues via this critical review. For the same price (sometimes less) than a cabin in the local caravan park, we offer guests a clean, neat, tidy, simple, light and airy home. We do not advertise 5 star facilities, nor charge for them. The house can only be entered by the front door, it is not possible to enter the back door without unlocking the sliding lock from the inside of the house. Some oil on the front door lock has now been applied and the lock is no longer sticking. We have a hot water system, TV, split system heater/cooler, large fridge and swing set all less than 3 years old in the house/yard. Between each and every set of guests the house is fully cleaned and no guest will ever enter a dusty, dirty, cob web ridden home...ever. A splash on the wall behind the bin is clearly spray and wipe, now gone. We provide current accurate true to life photos of the inside of the house on our website listing, so as not to deceive future paying guests. Instructions on how to use the split system are on the reverse of its remote. TV instructions are in the TV cabinet below the TV. We do not boast or mention a balcony or entertainment area at the back of the property. The lawns are regularly mowed and the native trees cut back to keep the basic garden under control. We had arranged for the lawns to be mown that day, thinking we were doing the right thing, we are sorry there was a lawn clipping issue. There are 2 basic outdoor tables and chairs outside, older but still available for guests, and the BBQ is set up on the small deck, which is not a balcony. The couches are comfy and feather/down filled, not foam/sponge. Some people may not like this style of seating. The small maintenance trap door on the side of the house is not intended for people or dogs to open, enter or use. We accept there is no real shelter for pets outside, which is something we are happy to look to change. ALL email and phone feedback we have received in the past mentions the house was CLEAN, NEAT and TIDY...offering great value for money, especially for families. We have numerous repeat gues
