Very disappointed - not as described

  • 1 of 5

Booked this accommodation for over new year period for two families of 3. Spoke to owner on arrival and they informed us we would have the place to ourselves as they were away for the week so we were shocked when our two boys came back to the house to say that 6 adults all drinking alcohol had taken over the pool area. We called the owner who said they had given permission for their lodger to use the pool which was advertised as private in our T and C’s which also forbid any parties or outside activity after 9pm. The lodgers home and also the owners home overlooks the pool along with their private entertainment area which is not for guests usage, it is also well away from the house rented to us. The fridge froze our food, our luggage was left in a pool of water after the roof in the purple room leaked. The bins were full of owners Xmas rubbish along with maggots leaving no room for our rubbish. There is an unfenced dam on the property so not ideal for young children, rubbish etc was scattered around the yard and dirt and bottle tops were under the lounge cushions. The photos displayed indicated the pool is close to the house it is not, they showed different furnishings inside and out, the thing that we found most disturbing was when we arrived home the day before departure and the day the owners arrived home was that the rear sliding door had been locked from the outside indicating that someone had entered the house whilst we were out. At 5am the morning of departure we heard the owners walking around the yard discussing whether we had used the fire pit etc. TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE, stay away!

Owner's Response: EXTREME STORM - EXTREME HEATWAVE Two Acres - Two houses - Two perspectives - one huge pool to share. Lots of room and privacy for both homes. Each have their own undercover, screened outdoor areas with beautiful landscaped gardens. The beautiful young man that was staying with us, asked us, due to the extreme heatwave, if he could have a swim with his 3 friends. It was only 5:30pm. When our guests asked us to remove them from the pool (seeing as I had mentioned that they would have the place to themselves as we were away), we willing obliged and he vacated the pool immediately. The rest of the stay they had the pool for their exclusive use. Our description explains the property is shared therefore the pool is also shared. Fridges do funny things in extreme heat and it was set too low. The extreme storm and severe winds caused the window sills to overflow causing the leak. Each home has it’s own 2 bins but unfortunately the prior guests did not put the bins out as they thought they would not be emptied due to holiday break. Children should always be supervised on large acreage especially where there is a beautiful dam and swimming pool. Due to the severe storm lots of tree branches and leaves were scattered over our normally landscaped two acres. In peak holiday season we don’t always get time to check under the lounges but they are regularly cleaned. Yes, our furniture has been updated and has improved the overall comfort and class of our home. The day before the guests were due to leave there were no cars or guests from early in the morning till late at night so we assumed they had vacated early and went up to check only to discover that they had not. We never enter the property without notifying our guests. However, the house was left unlocked so we locked it up for security and safety. We are always available to discuss concerns with our guests, as we were with the pool, but everything else was only disclosed in this review and never discussed. We can’t fix what we are not aware of.

So peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

A quiet, serene setting, with shopping & eating facilities close by. Country Cottage was ideal for our sporting group to unwind after a hectic day at the fields. Plenty of comfortable seating areas, both indoor & outdoor for our large group to relax together & discuss team tactics, eat & have a drink together. Very comfortable.

Great location and beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful house in July and loved the size, location and extras of this house. The house was a lovely place to take the kids and let them run off some steam - they particularly liked the ducks in the back dam and hubby loved the pool. Highly recommend this house for a family or families to stay.

No stress holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time away with our four children and two small dogs. The house was beautifully set up with plenty of room to relax and take in the beautiful surrounds. The location is very handy to both the Gold Coast and Brisbane and you can find the supermarkets and nice restaurants just a few minutes down the road. It was the perfect location to get away from it all, and yet we were able to make a 30 minute trip back to Brisbane when work requirements called. I thoroughly recommend the Country Cottage to anyone who just needs to exhale and regroup as a family. We look forward to staying there again!
