Great location - a nice 5 to 10 minute walk to the beach. Inside furniture and furnishings are wonderful, very comfortable, though the outdoor furniture is not so great. Couple of issues in the kitchen. The property manager was extremely helpful.

Mold growing on masterbed window. No toilet paper on the holder when we arrived. We were provided the wrong entry details. All window latches are broken. No aircon. Pour quality renovation work. Lawns weren't mowed. Outdoor area is unusable. The BBQ is awkwardly placed around the corner by the master bedroom. I could go on

Was a fabulous place for a family getaway. Kids loved it!

Stayed January 2021

We enjoyed the peace and quiet and found ourselves close to beach, shopping and eating out facilities.

Relaxed bach for a weekend away, it was great that a chrome cast was connected to the tv. The bed was comfortable, just remember to take your own bed sheets & towels.

Lovely property, close to all amenities and the beach. Great wood burner for the winter season. Will return soon.

This was a nice Bach to stay in. Great selection of games which the kids loved! We unfortunately had a challenge accessing the property due to being given an incorrect lock box code. Then we’re unable to get hold of the manager too. Resulted in us driving round in the dark with young kids trying to find a motel. Did put a negative on the stay unfortunately. However the manager and owner have been very good to us since which we really appreciate.

Thank you for your review Sarah. Its great to hear you enjoyed Ponderosa Holiday Home. We're sorry for the issue you had at the start of your stay with regards to accessing the property and have worked with our team to improve this process. We do hope we can host you again in the future.

We enjoyed our stay at the Ponderosa. The house was just right for our family of 4. Quiet area, friendly neighbours.

Stayed January 2020

Good property with lots to offer, was just disappointed with discoloured tap water.

Bachcare replied

Thanks for your review Peter. Ponderosa is on tank water, but also has a bore for use when the tank gets low. While the water is safe to use, we do apologise if the colour put you off! We're sorry we dropped the ball and didn't communicate clearly where the water came from. We hope to welcome you back again the future!
