Jampacked property

  • 4 of 5

Our family selected the property on price and the amenities. The extra added bits were multiple TV's, fabulous deep bath, luxury linens and comfy beds and close proximity to explore other towns.

Having read other reviews this enabled me to pack the required kitchen utensils we may need BUT didn't account for a rusty but somewhat usable BBQ.

But overall - great place.. Thanks Sarah and Simon.

Beautifully presented, comfortable, convenient

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully presented, modern, well priced, comfortable, convenient and warm, with comfortable bed (but had to remake it as both sheets were on the wrong way around), lovely furniture and excellent easy to use appliances (the lounge room needs a coffee table though, there is nowhere to put a drink down) however for a week long stay the kitchen implements and supplies, and bathroom and laundry supplies were wanting. We had to go to the supermarket to buy staples such as paper towel, scourer, foil, glad wrap, serviettes, soap for the bathroom etc. We were there in winter and made soup, but no soup spoons or ladle. No egg rings or teapot. Lovely cast iron baking dish was too big for the oven. Most cottages provide these home comforts as well as condiments and some breakfast supplies. However a lovely bottle of wine was provided which was appreciated. Cottage was clean but previous guest's undies were still in the washing machine and discovered there was quite a bit of oil in the bottom of the oven when it began smoking! Decided to BBQ but it had mould on the plate and the outdoor setting was rusty and uncomfortable.

Holiday Joy

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place. Plenty of room for a family, warm in winter with a gas fire. So close to everything - leave the car behind and walk/train your way around the coast! Clean, new facilities and everything you need for a self contained stay.

The house was just what we were looking for, very inviting and comfortable, wish we had more time there. Just needed some milk in the fridge for a cup of tea!
