Good central location on the island, was a neat place, very different than anywhere we’ve stayed before which is what I was after. Had everything we needed and was neat waking up in the trees.
We had seen this property on George Clarke's Small Spaces. Love the property, felt very special to walk down the path and into a home with music playing upon arrival (love the playlist btw) and underfloor heating. A romantic night with a glass of wine in the spa pool. However sadly our stay was tainted by minor things that you don't expect to find when paying for a premium property. No body wash, shampoo/conditioner, or hand wash in the bathroom and a $2 countdown hand wash in the kitchen, no matches to light the fire (wet Newspaper) and a very dirty mouldy shower! Its's just miserable quite frankly. Come on owner, pay your cleaner extra time or get a new one. I have photos. Yuk. It would also have been nice to have some outdoor furniture so we could sit on the magnificent deck and have a wine.
All holiday houses are subject to ongoing wear and tear and we work assiduously to repair and upgrade any detail that is brought to attention.
This is a self-contained holiday house, not a hotel. We have noted under the amenities section that shampoo is not provided; most guests are happy to bring their own. Linen and soap are provided.
Matches are not provided: this has never been an issue in the past however we will be happy to supply these in the future.
The property is cleaned by a professional team prior to each guest's arrival. Floors and stairs have recently been repainted. We are aware that there are 6 of the forest green mosaic tiles missing in the shower and are currently sourcing replacements. The grout is grey, not mouldy.
The architect owner of property has a minimal aesthetic. Guests are welcome to use the waterproof table and chairs just inside the door, should they wish to sit outside on the deck. There is outdoor seating facility around the fire pit. The architect is currently considering additional outdoor furniture that will work with the aesthetic of this unique design.
Looks cool but needs some love.
This house is great looking and it's a treat to see it sitting in the bush looking sleek and edgy but:
1. The pitch of the ceiling make it very difficult for 2 people to maneuver on the mezzanine bedroom level and onto the bed, you have to climb over one another or hunch over and sidle around the it. I'm only 178cm so anyone taller would not fit at all.
2. The bathroom is very hard to use, you can't stand over the toilet and getting in the shower takes some talent as opening the shower door blocks the entrance. There are also no towel rails or shelves anywhere.
3. The house's remoteness makes it great but there's nothing around you for supplies. Some milk at least in the fridge would be a nice touch and soap and shampoo for the bathroom as well would be great.
4. There are no towels for taking to the beach, The owner requests you don't take the house towels to the beach but who travels with beach towels? Supplying some would be very helpful instead of having to purchase them on the island.
With the price of this place per night I expected a premium experience but even at cheap motels you would be looked after better.
This place could be fantastic with some extra effort put into hosting.
The house was exactly as it was shown on the booking and instructions were simply and easy to follow
The house was exactly as it was shown on the booking and instructions were simply and easy to follow. Would highly recomend this place for somebody looking for something a little different.
Great place to stay for the weekend.
Great place to stay for the weekend. It could use a couple of extra things. Citronella candles, insect repellent, bathroom hooks, and coffee plunger (thanks for providing pods for the nespresso).
Great location. Very private despite being so close to neighbours. The design the property is beautiful. The cleanliness of the property however, was a disappointment. We were hoping for a relaxing couple of days away. However, the kitchen was dirty, hence we couldn't cook and relax at the property. The spa vents look like they've never been cleaned. For a relaxing trip, we spent as much time away from the property as we could. Overall a very disappointing stay for the price asked.
Thank you for your feedback which we appreciate. We have now changed our cleaning service and have passed on your concerns about the vents to the spa maintenance company for immediate action.
