  • Cute little place

    Cute little place. Only downfall would be the mandatory $70 cleaning fee with no option to do it yourself. Also water pressure is not awesome

    Owner/manager responds:

    Glad you enjoyed your stay at our bach, Jade. However, you were fully made aware and agreed to the two conditions that you now negatively comment on, before you made the booking or paid any money - namely the "mandatory" $70 cleaning fee and that the water supply is "gravity fed" at the bach.
