Eco Lodge needs some TLC
The positives; loved the location, felt very secluded and private, and close to beautiful Long Beach. Very spacious living area and the deck that leads off the living space is a wonderful place to relax. The negatives; I've stayed in a lot of different accommodation in my time through work and holidays, and have never experienced bed-bugs until staying here! My wife and I are still scratching....slept on the lounge the last two nights. The ceiling fan in the en-suite bedroom sounded like it was going to fall off the ceiling. Luckily the nights were cool and didn't need to have it on. The microwave oven doesn't work. It appears to operate but doesn't heat anything... very frustrating. Floors were dusty on arrival and we had to wash some of the cutlery and cookware before use.... pretty greasy and dirty. We didn't use the outdoor setting and BBQ under the rear verandah. Both were extremely dirty/dusty and being a soft cloth material, the chairs cannot be hosed down to clean. It's not boat owner friendly with the narrow driveway and limited turning area, my boat isn't huge (5.2m) and it was a struggle. Overall, disappointed given the money we paid. Would we stay there again? No I don't think so.
