    We enjoyed our stay and the property had everything that's required to make it a perfect bach. Amazing views, close to Claris airport and shops. We'll be back again.

  • The bach was fantastic

    The bach was fantastic. Everything was as described and good information was provided for how things operate. Beautiful views, especially from upstairs, and the deck was lovely. Great that you've got a wind break to provide a sheltered area on the deck, as we did experience that sou'wester! Only a short walk to the beach. Hope we can come back sometime! Thank you very much!

    Bach was a good size for our group of five and situated on a very sunny quiet section. The beach was very close and boat ramp just 15 mins away. Only problem we had was the house was a bit hot late afternoon in the kitchen and dining areas due to the wonderful weather.

    Location perfect for walking to a safe beach and central for touring the island. A very steep driveway giving problems to exit in a hire car. We parked on the road in the end. Bach instructions good but need to include what to do when gas runs out. Furniture adequate but cupboards a little grubby and kitchen utensils all over the place . We tidied them up. Out door shower was great for after beach and the deck was excellent.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Sorry to hear about the cupboards and kitchen utensils. I guess after a number of guests over the summer, things don't always stay the way you would like them to be. When gas ran out you did the right thing by calling Orla (property manager) - she is there to help with anything like that. Cheers.

  • We spent 10 days (our second time on GBI) at the house

    We spent 10 days (our second time on GBI) at the house. Liked the location, proximity to the beach (Blind Bay). Perfect place for a family vacation. The kitchen was well equipped, beds were comfortable. Would love to come back anytime!
