Owner's Response: Hi , Thanks for staying , love your review, old, basic and comfortable.. as this is exactly what it is, We don't portray it to be over the top, modern etc... It's not the Hilton... It is what it is, an "old beach shack", to come and chill out, on the hammocks, walk to the beach.. go to the tavern for lunch or dinner, most who stay absolutely love it.. Again Cheers

Not what was in the description........

  • 1 of 5

When arriving to the house we were so excited. Looked great. As soon as we open the door we were welcomed with a gush of dust smelling aromas. It was so unpleasant we had to open up the windows, as we approached the windows we saw them covered in dust, black spots and filth so we did not want to touch them. Even if we did open them, some of the fly screens had holes in them or ripped off. We avoided one room with the single beds in there due to the amount of mould patches on the blinds just not healthy to be breathed in.

We then went into the bathroom to get some spray and as we entered the little ornaments were covered in dust and the toilet paper roll holder fell off onto the floor.

Bedroom ceilings were covered in mould patches, the beds uncomfortable.

The lounge room had a mattress on the side that was so dirty we wouldn't even want our dogs to sit on there and the dining chairs were covered in hair and crumbs.

The kitchen utensils and appliances were just filthy. The pots were filthy. We thought we could just use the BBQ outside.....well let's just say, looking at it made us want to be sick, opening it up was another story all together. Beyond filthy.

Hammocks had mould patches all over them. There was rubbish all in the back where the boat was and as we had dogs we were so worried about them being around there.

Horrible stay, would not recommend or go back there. I emailed the owner and she has stated these things will be tended too but that does not change the fact that we paid for a house we had to clean, couldn't use certain things there and had to avoid certain areas due to dirt and having a baby with us.

Perfect place for a quiet week end away

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect place to stay with a lovely relaxed feel. The owner was very accommodating as we only needed one night not the usual two nights.

Walking distance from the stunning clear waters of Fingle Bay and many bush walks in the beautiful surrounding area. Short drive to Nelson Bay for dinner!

Lots of accommodation options within the house made it easy for our mums night away.
