Perfect Location - Lacked Detail
You couldn't find a more perfect location and we really enjoyed our stay, however we did feel that detail was lacking which took away from the whole experience.
1. A big selling point was the gas fire place, however there was no gas in either bottle so this could not be used
2. Dust - At first glance, the place looked clean, however one you started to look around there was dust everywhere, The fans, picture rails, air cons etc were like they had not been cleaned in years, all had large amounts of duct build up
3. TV - The TV was advertised as a smart TV, however it needs updating as it cannot connect to the internet so we could not watch Netflix
4. There is no door to the freezer section of the fridge. This means that everything freezes is you need items in the Freezer to stay cold, or if you turn the fridge up, everything melts
5. The joystick on the computer game does not work properly.
We left this feedback for the owner but didn't hear so we thought this should form part of our review
Although the property was nice and mark accommodating the stay was spoilt by the couple next door
I had made arrangements to bring my well behaved small dog , paid extra for cleaning - although he doesn’t shed I was happy to do this
Arrive and are met by male neighbour greeting us with..
You can’t have a dog here ! After explaining it was approved by the owner he seemed ok
Next day - wife arrives.. same thing. To make matters worse she yelled twice at my daughters about him. Also telling us not to leave our swimming costume or towels outside.. wow!
Not a great start. Following this they both entered the property front garden daily
Putting up mesh over the garden, watering, hedging, mowing
This spoilt our stay, there was no privacy
You’d wake up in the morning and they’d be in the front garden. Consequently we left a day early
Not an ideal relaxing stay. Such a shame
The stay was perfect. Location perfect. We definitely would do that once again.
Great little place.
We had a great stay at Sandy Corner, the location was perfect for beach access and a very short walk to restaurants. The lake side was perfect for young kids if waves are too big. Would have been 5 stars if the blinds were darker as it became bright as soon as the sun come up.
When a weekend isn't enough...
Sandy Corner cottage had all the charm and comforts expected for a restful and relaxing weekend by the beach. The owner has gone to great lengths to ensure nothing has been overlooked. We especially appreciated the refreshments provided in the fridge on our arrival. The location was superb and we took advantage of everything Avoca Beach had to offer. It was hard to leave but we will return for a longer stay next time!
Cozy place for a romantic gateway
Sandy corner is amazing. A lovely place for a couple's gateway. The house is very comfortable, has all you need, beautifully decorated, in a perfect location. There are enough blankets and also air con.
The gas fireplace warms the place in a cold day and the all the front doors open for a hot day.
The newly install d blinds give you the privacy you need without restricting the view and the brightness in the place.
The house is very bright and the perfect size for a couple.
But the most important part was the communication with the owner. He was really helpful and sorted out a small issue we had straight away. He is a lovely guy that will make anything to ensure your stay is nothing short of perfect.
I highly recommend the place and will certainly return
