1/5 Terrible

Excellent location but not well maintained. Ensuite has no WC. So only 2 WC for 12 guests.uest
1. Very good location. That was the one and only positives about this property 2. Very old and very very poorly maintained property. 3. There is a nearly no mobile network from any of the carrier in and around the property. 4. It took nearly an hour to find out the WiFi details due to difficulties in making phone calls to the property manager. 5 No fan in the toilet 6. The privacy locks were not working in the toilets/bathrooms. That made it very difficult when there were more than ten people staying at the property 7. There were only a couple of toilet rolls for 10+ people staying for two nights. We had to buy our own toilet rolls from IGA. Couldn't be any worse. 8. Pool was not heated so it was useless for us. 9. There were no robes in most rooms for hanging our clothes. 10. Property looks and feels very run down especially from inside. How silly it was that out of two ceiling lights one was a warm white and another a cool white in the same room. 11. Generally unclean with cockroaches in kitchen cupboards. 12. Furniture of poor quality. One of the bedrooms upstairs had 2 single beds of different heights. Overall, Disappointing. 2 out of a score of 10.

5/5 Excellent

Location, location, location!
Great beach pad in an awesome spot. Perfect for families and friends wanting a holiday across the road from the beach with a pool to also cool down in. Loads of space and everything you want in a summer holiday.

4/5 Good

Great spot for a Summer holiday
The house is huge, downstairs was a self contained two bedroom unit, living spaces and bedrooms are all large. Upstairs is another four bedroom self contained apartment that could easily accommodate two families. The poll and bbq are good. The kitchens were well stocked with appliances. The location is excellent, great views of the ocean across the road from a patrolled beach. The caves are great to explore. Our family had a great Christmas holiday

5/5 Excellent

Great Stay very Impressed
Our family loved staying at this property had a really enjoyable time.

5/5 Excellent

We were three dads with our teenage sons. This place was awesome. Loads and loads of space. Just opposite the beach with great views. Two massive living areas with comfortable couches. Shockingly good value for money. If I had one minor complaint it would be that the BBQ was very dirty and after 2 minutes the gas ran out. But otherwise it was a huge win and we would love to.come back.
