Thank you for your review Robert!

Has everything you need. Short walk to local shops, short drive to Huskinson, owner knowledgeable. Pool is a bit small-nit that you need it and needs a night light as I almost turned into the neighbours driveway a few times coming back from dinner!

Thank you for the great review! I have increase the timer on the front sign to go out at 11.00pm. Our pool is not a swimming pool but a large spa pool/plunge pool. Thank you for the feedback Milad.

The booking process was a disgrace. Booked a 3 bedroom villa to be told after booking that if you want to use all 3 bedrooms you need to pay us more money. Completely decepetive behaviour. Once you've paid for the hotel online you shouldn't be expected to pay more for the rooms you've booked.

Hi David, You actually booked our TWO BEDROOM VILLA and not the THREE BEDROOM TOWNHOUSE. From 15 years ago, I made the decision to have a trariff for one or two people cohabiting the main bed (a king size bed in your case) and an additional tariff for each additional person or sleeping position. The reasoning behind this is that I don't believe it's fair for a guest to pay for beds that are not required. In your case, for a Saturday night, for three people (use of one king and one single), you were charged approximately $407.00. If we were charging for full occupancy (6 people), the tariff would have been $543.00. Your concern had me concerned and consequently I have made a major change to all Expedia and Expedia partner sites. I have changed tariffs to all Expedia sites to reflect full occupancy for all accommodation types. The new Low Season tariffs for a Friday or Saturday in a Two Bedroom Villa is now $554.00/night (regardless to the number of people to a maximum of six) and Sunday to Thursday tariffs are changed to $519.00/night (regardless to the number of people to a maximum of six). Kidest regards, Andrew Motel Owner

Room presented well. Very comfortable bed. Good bathroom facilities. On quiet street. Close to supermarket and restaurants. Sliding security door’s lock in room 4 needs to be fixed.
