Great for kids but several disappointments

  • 2 of 5

Palmy House is wonderfully equipped for kids, however upon arrival we found the air-conditioning to be broken. In the peak of summer this was a big problem. Our kids bedrooms reached 37 degrees on 3 of our 7 night stay. The owner was notified immediately and claimed to not have known, but it became clear the issue was known about shortly after. We kept the windows open and shades drawn as instructed however this did little to cool down a very old wooden house with no insulation. For a property of this price, one would excpect modern air-conditioning. The unit was very old.

A 1 night extra stay was offered in compensation however we felt this unreasonable seeing as it was too hot to sleep well at night. Our daughter developed a heat rash all over her face. We asked for 1 nights rental reimbursement however all our phone calls and text messages were ignored. Whilst we still enjoyed our stay, we would not return due to the rudeness and greed shown by the owner. It is also not a walk to the front beach as advised by the owner.

Fabulous Holiday Home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our family holiday at The Palmy House! Loved walking in and feeling immediately comfortable in this warm, inviting, well appointed holiday home. Fantastic comfortable beds. Beautiful surroundings with nearby access to beaches, bush walks, restaurants, playgrounds and amenities. The property has secure front and back yards perfect for children, including a lovely pool with paddling deck. Our 2 year old had a ball! The host Hannah was friendly and helpful and included an excellent "info pack" with all the information on the property and local area which helped us make the most of our time on the peninsula. Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our holiday time at The Palmy House and will definitely be back! Thank you

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for a getaway. The location is great with Sorrento and Blairgowrie main facilities at your door step, not to mention beautiful beaches also in close proximity. The house itself has all the modern and spotlessly clean conveniences available to make your stay very comfortable. Its very child friendly with lots to keep little ones entertained. The pool area is a beautiful little oasis. I would highly recommend staying at The Palmy House.
