    “This bach is getting very, very close to not being worth the money.”

    We gave it three stars, because the location is excellent, being elevated and just across the road from the beautiful beach; so the views and the beach save it.....just about. Because the whole place is run-down, full of cobwebs, and held together by duct-tape and goodwill. Don't believe the accuracy of the pictures you see online, because they were clearly taken a while back. For example the well laid out table that you see in the first picture now has only two of the rickety wooden chairs ...

    We gave it three stars, because the location is excellent, being elevated and just across the road from the beautiful beach; so the views and the beach save it.....just about. Because the whole place is run-down, full of cobwebs, and held together by duct-tape and goodwill. Don't believe the accuracy of the pictures you see online, because they were clearly taken a while back. For example the well laid out table that you see in the first picture now has only two of the rickety wooden chairs there, plus a dirty white plastic friend. The other single-seater cushioned outside chairs in the pictures aren't there, and the umbrella shade won't lock in place so we had to use bungy-cord down the inside of it to stop it flipping vertical in any breeze. The ranch slider was locked by putting a piece of wood down in the floor runner, one of the lounge windows dislocated and pretty much fell out whenever you opened it, and the sliding door to the single bedroom was held on by one rusty runner and fell off if you tried to close it fully. And I agree with a previous reviewer who wrote that the washing made your clothes smell worse than when they went in. Overall, the bach is in a great spot and the location is amazing in general. But you pay a lot of money to be there, and there are things you expect to be non-negotiables....one of those being that it is clean and the facilities described are present and working. We made the mistake of not reading the reviews before we booked.
