Nice and comfortable house, nice people living around the house so really good to stay here and highly recommended

Stayed April 2022

Such a great stay - incredible view, great location - nice and spacious with a great homely feel. We had a ball with 3 couples + kids and thought it was exceptional value for money. Will definitely come back.

Stayed April 2022

The upstairs part of the house was lovely, the rooms are nice but downstairs was dark, musty and not very clean. The guests who slept in the downstairs room next to their garage had to clean the room thoroughly before sleeping in there. The carpet is old and stained which you can’t spot in the photos, it also has a musty smell. The views from the house are beautiful and it’s a very short walk to the beach. The lounge area can seat only 7 people. We were at the house during wet weather, the foyer area of the house leaked.

Thank you for your review, Alice! We're glad to hear you enjoyed the stunning views and location, as well as the great spaces offered in the upstairs area. We are sorry to hear that you weren't entirely satisfied with the cleaning in the downstairs rooms and will be working on this with the local team. We'll also look into the leak in the foyer area to ensure this is addressed.

The glass house stands upto its name, the views and property is excellent.

Well set up, great for large groups, amazing views could have sat on the deck all day

Stayed December 2021

Overall stunning views and tasteful decor really incorporating the ‘beach vibe’ into almost every room. That being said, it’s clear from the get go that the bottom floor was not part of the initial floor design, which was unfortunate considering the bulk of the rooms was there. 2/3 rooms had VERY limited lighting and the room next to the garage had a very strong musty/petrol smell permeating the entire room. There were also numerous bugs/roaches throughout the house and some of the furniture could use a good clean. The main issue was however with the Wifi. The property is advertised as having wifi, yet on the first day the wifi was already quite unstable but for the remainder of the trip it completely shut down. This severely impacted our plans for movie night/ live streaming to family/ and friends / emergency work calls etc, more so since there was also no reception (couldn’t access phone data). When we reached out to Bachcare they told us to reach out to Spark and when we called Spark they said to call Bachcare - really futile and annoying. Considering the price we paid (almost $650 per night) you’re probably better off booking motels near the area than this house. 5/10

Thank you for your review Homayra. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the lovely views and decor at The Glass House. We're sorry to hear that the WIFI presented some issues during your stay. upon checking we could see that 10 devices were connected to it, which would've had an impact on the performance and connectivity. We've checked the WIFI again and can confirm it has ben working well since as well as previously. We appreciate your comments about the downstairs rooms and have shared this with the property owners. Unfortunately insects aren't uncommon at this time of the year ad while we try to keep them at bay with cleaning they can appear again during a stay.
