  • Excellent property for a large group and very warm in winter with...

    Excellent property for a large group and very warm in winter with great heating. Facilities very good. One complaint is that the three single beds provided need attention. May be okay for kids but not for adults 60-70 age group. We would all come and stay again but only if better mattresses/bases were installed. Shame as everything else was excellent.

  • The shared driveway does not do the property justice

    The shared driveway does not do the property justice. The location is a manageable walk to town for average fitness. Odd photos of kitchen cupboards need to be removed, they were confusing.

  • Lovely spacious house for large group

    Lovely spacious house for large group. Easy walk into town and small drive from bays to swim at. Jetty was unusable at the time of our stay, luckily we didn’t have a boat or that would have been very disappointing. Upstairs outdoor furniture had no seats - not very good really as hot sunny days = want to sit outside. The owner should really get that sorted. Bachcare’s Manager was very helpful.

    Thanks for your feedback, Philippa! We're glad to hear your group enjoyed the house and its location. I've looked into your feedback regarding the Jetty and although more than half of the jetty is useable and hasn't been an issue in the past, our local holiday manager will make sure to show future guests where to take extra care. Apologies for the miscommunication and we hope you decide to stay again (definitely bring the boat next time!) Cheers, Phoebe

  • The location was amazing

    The location was amazing. New outdoor furniture on the upper deck is a must for this property. The downstairs shower floods when using and needs attention. . 2 teatowels for doing dishes was rediculous. It would have been great if flyspray was provided and more rubbish bags. Otherwise we had a lovely stay... Thank you
