2/5 Poor

Dissapointing.. for the money.
I would advise the owners to firstly: Update the online description and photoes. After coming from central Victoria and looking forward to a holiday, we were very dissapointed. The house was OK, a few things need to be addressed,, Listing says a clothes dryer (there was no dryer)... Photo shows sand and beach over the road,, No beach or sand to walk over the road to relax on a beach. Just water slapping on rocks. We had to travel to Shelly beach to see and walk along an actual beach. I will say again, the listing states fishing, boating and swimming ( I dont think so). Front sliding door needs attention, it could hardly be opened. Hence trying to open it I injured my knuckle and bruised my hand, so that was a wonderful start to a long awaited holiday. Certain take away restaurants will not deliver 7km from town,, wow. I would also advise the owner to address the MOUSE issue in the kitchen, We could not store our food in the cupboard, as it had mouse poop in it!! I have photoes. NEVER AGAIN!! Extremely dissapointed, and would never holiday in this region again.

5/5 Excellent

Great place for the big family with a dog!
This place is in a beautiful, peaceful location, just a short drive to the shops and the perfect base to day trip to the Grampians or Mt Gambier. With 2 teenagers, a tween, a10 year old and a staffie, it had plenty of comfy beds and great living space with a beautiful relaxing view from the front verandah. Thank you!
