The property was clean and comfortable. Nice beds, good security flyscreens so the windows can be left open.

Love the old units, very relaxing. Was disappointed to find a dirty towel from the previous occupant hanging behind the bathroom door, but very happy with the quick response in having it removed and replaced

The early check out of 9am was really poor. We rented for only one night and taking into account the price we did feel a bit ripped off.

Floor was sandy, gas bottle empty so had to wait for showers, basic kitcen utensils could have included a colander. Okay overall but wouldn’t rush back.

We were really disappointed to get to the cabin to find no linen. When we enquirer, the staff advised as we had booked through wotif, a subsidiary of Expedia it should have stated no linen was included. The staff were really rude and got an extra cost of $54 per night we could be supplied sheets and towels. This needs to be sorted out
