Not a good house to stay at if you suffer any allergies. Very damp/musty. Curtains backing crumbling off and blinds in a bad need or replacement. Generally run down, however the deck and views are lovely.

We loved the location of the house, the views and facilities. We were two families staying and we had plenty of room to keep everyone happy.

Great view. Fairly old plumbing; so hot and cold did not come out of the same faucet. Service was excellent.

Easy living with great views. 3 bathrooms for number of people a treat. A good family place or base for a girls weekend.

The location of the bach is excellent. The area was quiet, and the views were great from the windows and deck. There is a walkway through to the beach, so walking to the beach took around 10 minutes which was good. The bach is of a good overall size. However, there were a number of issues which detract from this bach. Some of the points may be related to the fact we had 6 adults there but given it is advertised to sleep 8 with 4 bedrooms, this shouldn't have been an issue: 1.) The bach may not be insulated. It was ridiculously hot inside the bach even with every door and window open. This made sleeping at night extremely difficult. There was no fan in the master bedroom. 2.) The dining table only seats 6 so not sure how 8 people would be able to fit. 3.) There is a general lack of serving dishes, mixing bowls, platters etc. We bought a salad bowl and left it there. The knives were very blunt which made preparing food hard. The fridge freezer is small, and with 6 adults we ended up using a chilly bin as well, otherwise you would need to shop every day. 4.) The waste disposal unit did not work 5.) The main lights in the master bedroom did not work and there were no replacement bulbs (presuming it was the bulbs) 6.) The ensuite shower head doesn't really fit the holder which means it kept falling out or down. The toilet constantly fills. 7.) The deck has a number of proud nails in it and my son cut himself on one. 8.) The wooden deck furniture is old, and at least 1 seat was broken. We didn't use it as a result 9.) the BBQ on the deck has part of the frame rotted away, and is balanced on a block of wood. 10.) Laundry tub cold water tap doesn't work 11.) The outside bin is way too small for waste. there were no bins in any of the bathrooms 12.) The 4th bedroom is at the back of the garage. It isn't very nice and it was nicknamed the dungeon 13.) There was a lot of ants in and around the house. Overall, it seems like the bach was not been maintained very well, Overall, we felt is was not good value for money.

Hi Brett! Thank you for your detailed comments and we're sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with some aspects of the property during your stay. We have addressed all these with the owners in detail who have immediately taken the suggestions on board and action has been taken to address them since. An inspection is being done and any further improvements required are being carried out in the next few months. New photos of the property showing these improvements will follow.

Comfortable home with two bathrooms and space to enjoy. Nice to be able to eat outside on deck.
