Disappointing, outdated and dirty
1 / 5 Terrible
We stayed in unit 5. The views are great. But unfortunately we were greeted with at least 3 skinks running around and sunbaking on the carpet.
The wine glasses, cups and cutlery were filithy- we had to wash everything prior to using it. Which was difficult as there was only a few drops of dishwashing detergent left in the bottle and some used dirty chux cloths. We also couldn’t find the kitchen sink plug.
The outdoor furniture and balcony was also very filthy, covered in dust and bird droppings. And it looked like it had been like that for a long time. So we had to clean that before we could use it as well.
In the bathroom, no new/fresh soaps or shampoo were supplied. In the shower there was what looked like their personal 1 litre bottles of shampoo and body wash which we weren’t keen on using. Also the shower floor was disgusting, had lots of hair and some unknown piece of food or something on the shower floor.
It’s a shame the accomodation was so disappointing and unclean because it could be amazing if it was updated and maintained better. It has huge potential.
The unit itself is outdated with blown lightbulbs and the towel rails loose and falling off the walls. Also a lot of their personal items lying around and stuffed in cupboards making the place feel cluttered.
In the bedroom, some of the spare blankets and pillows were rolled up and thrown into a cupboard with a dirty vacuum plonked on top of them. We took photos of all this but are unable to upload them to this review.
For price we paid, we really expected much better and unfortunately don’t recommend staying here.
The owners were lovely with the small amount of communication we had, so I hope they can improve the units and the cleanliness. We cleaned it up and left the unit in better condition than we found it.
