    Great location - handy to beach, shops and has a large well fenced grass area outside the large decks - room for all of an extended family of 3 generations to have their own space, bedrooms plus collectively congregate for BBQs / meals together - either outside or in dining room. Are returning again!

  • Great place for family or two, to spend a holiday

    Great place for family or two, to spend a holiday. This home is a notch above the others in the area and are typical of a beach side bach. Not a luxury home but a nice getaway from the hussle of the city. Walking distance from a nice wine bar / small plates establishment ( Vivno - was nice enough to fill some wine bottles with filtered water) a liquor store and a convenience store. Our family enjoyed our stay at Chris's bach.

  • There appeared to be some confusion about cleaning the property on departure

    There appeared to be some confusion about cleaning the property on departure. The kitchen benches etc were wiped down and dishwasher loaded (but unable to wash as property owner wanted electricity turned off on departure). Cleaning fee charged due to mainly "staining" on carpet. This was disputed with owner, but unfortunately owner had carpets cleaned and did not take photos of staining to corroborate claim staining was new and/or cause by guests.

    Owner/manager responds:

    For the first time in 3 years I charged a cleaning fee. In response to emails about the state of the house and extensive carpet stains the members response was "I had no expectation that we clean your house" .This is despite it being clear in the rental terms that the house was to be left in the same state as upon arrival.

  • A brilliant location ; very close to the beach and shops

    A brilliant location ; very close to the beach and shops. House roomy, large lounge onto a shaded deck with BBQ and 2 tables, a large fenced yard for activities. The 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and toiletsplus an extra fridge in garage makes life easy/very comfortable for a larger group or an extended family - returning for a third holiday.
