Owner hard to reach. Dirty linens. Very warm.

Posted 13-Feb-2018 on Orbitz
We really wanted to like this place. The location, size & parking were great. Sadly, the positives end there. We booked the house at 3pm for a same day reservation. We tried calling the owner several times & left messages but never got a call and there is no office on site. We occupied ourselves in town, hoping we’d hear from her. Around 9pm I returned to the house, hoping a miracle would happen & we’d have the beds we paid a lot of money for. Another guest was there, also trying to check in, but had problems. He was finally able to reach the owner & kindly handed me his phone so I could get the lockbox code to finally enter the house (again — after 9pm). I really wish the owner either made it clear on Orbitz that you can’t just book, pay & check in—or be diligent & send guests the lockbox code. Almost 8 hours after check in time, we entered a very warm house. It’s listed as having A/C but it’s only in the living room FYI. None of the bedrooms. There are fans but it took several hours for the house to get cool. Many of the towels & some pillowcases had stains, and the bathroom still smelled of urine.

Noisy position. Spacious and very central.

Posted 03-Oct-2015 on Wotif
Pros: It was close to all the restaurants and shops.
Cons: Linen, electrical goods
Location: Great restaurants like Thai Lucy's, Gourmet Fish and Chips and Asia Joe's nearby. And a great ice-cream shop.
Only had one night here and was glad of that because it was a really noisy spot. Also the fan only worked on level three in our room and it was like being in a room with a helicopter so you could not use it. The TV and dvd player were impossible to use. The sheets were synthetic which I don't like- they are hot to sleep in, and the towels were threadbare. It was a little bit depressing. However, if you are going to Blues fest and just there to party it would be OK and fairly reasonably priced.

1970 Style house close to everything

Posted 12-Jul-2015 on Wotif
Had a wonderful holiday in Byron, the accommodation was close to everything but don't expect glitz and glamour! Was comfortable and a great beach house but only with the bare essentials. A chopping board or colander wouldn't have gone astray! TV stopped working on State Of Origin night and didn't get fixed before we left, which forced our kids to talk to us ;-) Would be a great spot for 3 groups as there are two other houses and a huge back yard.

The quality of the accommodation did not reflect the rate.

Rip off

Posted 02-Jun-2015 on Wotif
We reached at night. Was extremely difficult to locate as the sign says Overnight Accomodation not SHirley beach houses. This name is painted on the window pane in black but there is no light on the sign . The bed was not made up and seemed as if it had not been made up since the last occupancy. The towels were ripped. I know it is a pet friendly accomodation but for the price service should have been better. No one answers the phone and one has to always leave a message . Saw no staff.

Cons: Facilities are quite old, nothing special, doesn't even have a hair dryer...but it was bearable, still have a lovely experience though
