    “For owners: This is a great spot and we loved the deck and communal area.”

    BBQ a bonus and wasn't on listing. Appreciated being able to bring our doggo. And French Farm bay lovely and quiet. Remote control for heatpump missing (would have been great as was stuck on heat mode). Listing doesn't indicate 3rd room with double bed is under house, and accessible via stairs outside. This doesn't work for elderly parents or younger kids. This also smelled very musty. For Bachcare: I understand that in the bush its hard to stop dust and cobwebs but a clean just before ...

    BBQ a bonus and wasn't on listing. Appreciated being able to bring our doggo. And French Farm bay lovely and quiet. Remote control for heatpump missing (would have been great as was stuck on heat mode). Listing doesn't indicate 3rd room with double bed is under house, and accessible via stairs outside. This doesn't work for elderly parents or younger kids. This also smelled very musty. For Bachcare: I understand that in the bush its hard to stop dust and cobwebs but a clean just before occupancy would be good as we had to vacuum many of the window sills (behind curtains), door handles, to remove bugs and dirt. For publishing: Lovely spot, beautiful views, well equipped and comfortable. French Farm bay lovely and quiet and great for SUPing. 3rd bedroom under house and accessible from outside so not ideal for younger kids or older grandparents.
