Guest reviews for Main Magic

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed April 2022

When we arrived, the lock box was not in the location that was stated on the email with the key lock box information, once we finally found the lockbox, we were not told that that the code had been changed from what we were given, we had to ring bachcare who were very apologetic for the inconvenience. We were a little upset that we needed to clean when we arrived. The floors were so dirty that our feet and socks were black from walking around, there was rubbish and bottles under some of the beds, and there was not enough bedding on the beds that we needed to use for the 9 people that we had. The downstairs bedding smelt musty like the whole downstairs area, so we needed to air the room and wash the bedding. We were also disappointed that we were only given one towel each for the 3 days that we were booked in for. The blind winder down stairs and in the end room was broken which was a pain to wind the blind up or down, and there were holes in the downstairs toilet wall. We also had food ruined from the thousands of ants. Other than these things, this house is in a perfect location. The heaters were great during the cold evenings and the house is perfect for a family. If the house was atleast clean, I would've definitely re book in the future.

Bachcare replied

Thanks for your review, Tracey. We are very sorry to hear about the hot water issue. We have since spoken to the local team and we will ensure that instructions are left at the property in the future.

Main Magic has a great location for those who want to be very close to the shops rather than beach. Note that this is very much a std bach level accommodation, not a higher quality beach house. Bedrooms are small, the bathroom is basic with very cracked vinyl tiles and the beds are of basic level. Kitchen fittings are a bit warped, and the pots and pans in poor state. There is a nice outdoor table and chairs downstairs though the stools were a bit rickety so you had to be careful sitting. Lounge furniture is pretty comfortable and the view from the small deck is pleasant looking over the houses across the estuary to the hills. Nice to have a filtered water tap in the kitchen. Place was not particularly clean although the beds and duvets were.

Bachcare replied
