Lovely spot, incredible view! I loved our stay here, the water pressure isn’t great, and it wasn’t super pristine - but not enough to worry about.. just obviously well loved. It’s places like this that make me smile, as you get to enjoy the character of the house and owners - which is the fun of travelling :)
We had such a wonderful stay. Helen and John were amazing hosts. They went over and above to ensure our stay was perfect. We loved the view, the pool and spa, the kayaks and snorkeling off the boat ramp. This is a wonderful holiday home and we look forward to returning.
Very disappointing. Beautiful spot but no way would we swim off the front lawn due to the pollution in the water from boats etc. We tried to put our clothes in the drawers in the bedroom but the drawers were either stuck or the bases were falling out. Cockroaches kept finding us on the floor or on the kitchen bench!! Bathroom- The pressure in the shower was only just enough to wash yourself . The shower curtain over the bath had mildew and a build up of soap along the bottom of it. the vanity drawers need attention. The bed in the big room was comfy, however the bed in the second bedroom sagged in the middle. The aluminium sills and frames on the windows in the bedrooms and in the kitchen were filthy with black mildew. Kitchen: The little benchtop oven -the tray at the bottom was full of dirty fat and grease. Platters had dead flies on them. Coffee was solid in the jar. No microwave dishes to use. No small sharp knives-only 3 large knives. There is very much a lack of power points in the unit. Every available wall was filled with furniture as well as other personal belongings stored behind the sagging couches. Obviously someone lives here and everything was stuffed away in the cupboards or behind the couches. We were there when the cyclone was going to hit Northland, and did some washing but there was no clotheshorse to hang washing. There were outside lines but that wasn't suitable in the wet damp weather. We enjoyed our kayak trip across the lagoon, but it was a mission to get started, We had to haul the kayaks out from under the deck and then try to find some life jackets for 4 of us. Turned out that there were not enough for us and the ones we did use were in very poor condition. The outside deck with BBQ is of one of the bedrooms and was dirty and cluttered It looked as though it had not had any attention for a very long time.Grime. mildew and dirty. Overall a very disappointing place to say, and not at all like the photos.
Response from Owner
I am sorry you found the apartment so disappointing but must point out that most of the previous reviews have been 5 star, the last only 3 months previous to your own. We are now employing new cleaners as it appears standards had been let slip, we had been away overseas for several weeks at the time of your booking and were relying on others to do change overs. There has never been any hint of boat pollution before, the local school has swimming in the estuary and a dive pontoon about 200m away is very popular and used by large numbers of locals almost daily. We have taken your comments on board and have done our best to mitigate them. Extra mattresses, linen and towels along with some of the furniture have been removed. Cleaning has been stepped up and spraying undertaken for insects etc. Damaged wallpaper in lounge has been replaced and new carpet laid in the main bedroom and stairs. The back deck has been cleaned up and excess planters, potting mix and garden tools and materials removed. New water filters have been installed to help improve water pressure in the shower. Extra knives and dishes added to kitchen and lifejackets for use with the kayaks There are 2 double power points in the small bedroom, 3 in the main, 2 in kitchen and 3 in lounge/dining room. There has always been a full size 4 strand clothes line under cover at the back of the carport that works well during any weather. We have taken on your input and are confident your concerns have been addressed.
