Great family bach and the addition of the sleepout is awesome. The outside shower is very convenient and overall the facilities are excellent.

Stayed January 2020

Excellent property, being close to town and a short walk to the beach. Ample parking and is in a quiet cul-de-sac. The sleepout is an additional bonus.

Great location. Easy access to beach and shops. Ample parking. So good to have the sleepout as a stand alone, private accommodation.

Stayed December 2018

We had a great stay at the Bilge. Great value for the $$$

Stayed November 2018

The Bilge is great for proximity to beach and town centre. The house was not entirely up to cleaning standards and I feel the cleanliness was perhaps because someone lives there during the week or Bachcare had not checked after previous occupants had left. Pajamas under the pillowcases, dirty dishes in the cupboard, razor and soap in the shower. On the last night the fridge kept alarming and the plug sockets in the two rooms short circuited.

Bachcare replied

Hi Bee, thank you for your feedback. We apologise that the property was not to Bachcare standard, we are working with the holiday manager to ensure that the cleanliness is at Bachcare standard.
