Disgustingly filthy house. Avoid!
"Gorgeous" Large House? Couldn't be further from the truth! The last reviewer did not exaggerate. I wanted to turn around and leave. It made my skin crawl. I wish I could attach the photos I took of the filth.
Bedding smelt musty and all needed washing. Although pillows and duvets (not needed) looked clean, the mattress protector (only on one bed) was stained. Yuk! All the carpets need replacing. One in the twin room (we didn’t use it) looked like it had been vomited on. So many stains all over the carpets with no effort to clean them. (Try hiring a carpet cleaner, or, better still, replace them.)
Kitchen/diner was vile. Plastic white kitchen chairs covered in black sticky finger prints. (They all came off when I went to the effort of scrubbing them.) All the surfaces, were dirty – floors, worktops, cupboards, sink/drainer. At least there was a dishwasher to wash all the crockery/cutlery and glasses. I didn’t bother washing the pans etc as we had no intention of cooking or eating much at the dirty house. Inside kitchen cupboards dirty, food splattered everywhere. (I just washed the one we used). Microwave needs replacing. The ceiling in it was either splattered with food or it was rusty… one look was enough. Didn’t use it. The (tiny) kitchen bin was something else on the dirty scale! Fridge freezer had a thick layer of dirt on the top. No effort had been made to make the house clean.
The bathrooms were a good size, but floor tiles in the shower cubicles were so dirty that even scrubbing with bleach didn’t clean them to white again, so they’ve been neglected for years. One area of tiles on the walls, which had been splashed with bleach, clearly showed that the white tiles were dirty, yet owners (or their appointed cleaners) didn’t care to clean properly.
I spent over 5 hours washing and scrubbing the areas of the house we would be using just to make the place livable for the 5 days we had booked it for.
Outdoor chairs ripped and unusable… not that the outside looked like anywhere you’d want to sit. Lots of personal items left around in cupboards – in a mess… toys thrown into bottom of wardrobes, spare bed linen in a heap in bottom of a cupboard. We lived out of our suitcases, as didn't want to put anything in the dirty wardrobes... besides, only a few child-size coat hangers in them. Stains on walls and curtains (looked like blood). Simply vile!
Multiple lights in the hallway/lounge were not working (some of the bulbs were actually missing and only 1 spare found). Although these were fixed by owner’s electrician after a couple of days, the 2 wall lights in lounge stopped working within a day… so I suspect there’s a problem with the wiring. Doesn’t surprise me.
House is listed as sleeping 11 guests. It only has 3 bedrooms. The twin bedroom is disgusting. The 2 queen rooms more usable, but that only equals 6 people. Listing a place to use inflatable mattresses is poor… unless you are targeting students.
Absolutely shocking that the owners think it is acceptable to rent out this house without cleaning it properly or replacing broken/worn furnishings. They should be embarrassed!
Great size & location
We loved the size of the house.... so much room for our family of 6. Lots of places don't really cater for large families and one feels like your kind of living on top of each other. Loved having an office area and with free Wifi it made attending to business while away a breeze. Nice and close to Logan Hyperdome so shopping a breeze. Quiet neighbourhood. Have made a few recommendations to owners for improvements so hopefully they will be taken on board. If we were in the area we would definitely stay again. Has air conditioning and fans so should be great for summer as well. Before packing check if towels are provided as we were caught out as well not realising until morning of stay that we needed own towels. We were already away from home so too late to organise.
Nice large house
From a house perspective, it was large and comfortable. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not cleaned well with hair in the showers. We were advised beforehand that towels were not provided which is inconvenient when you are flying from interstate. An iron and ironing board were also not provided, despite the house having a full size laundry. The aircon worked well and the beds comfortable. No basics were provided though, not even a tea bag and there was minimal kitchen crockery/cutlery. The back yard was also over grown.
House was very good and large. Will stay there again
Thanks Dave, much appreciate for your good feedback :)
Beautiful large house
We stayed at the property back in January 2017 and loved it! Great size and price. We even spoke about how nice it would be to live in a house like it. The only problems we had was the bar fridge (since been sorted) the lack of cutlery crockery & seating in the dining room and the water pressure for that bath (took a long time To run) but none of these were major problems. We actually left a salad bowl behind
for the next people staying there. We would definitely stay again.
Only the basics included!
Place did not have enough seating for our group of 6. The fridge was only a bar fridge and the freezer did not work, so the iceblocks all melted in there. Not even a tea towel supplied. Information sent Day of arrival so no time to accomodate for it as we were at airport. Washing machine should be provided as long term accomodation and no towels provided. Ants surrounded property. Couldn't even put fitted sheets on beds, just flat sheets so had to remake bed every day.
Only positives location and ducted air conditioning!
Thanks Ann for providing your feedback and we will work on some of the items listed. Please see response 1. Fridge not working - We have replaced bar fridge 2. Place did not have enough seating: We have 2 Lounge in living room (3 seaters + 2 seaters), 2 comfortable office chairs and still if you need, you would have taken 4 dinning chairs from kitchen, which might be enough seating for 11 people. 3. Ants surrounding property - There should be no ant inside property, however having summer days, and being huge property (2000 s.q.m) there is possibility that you might have found few ants outside the house. 4. Tea towels and Towels are normally not supplied in vacation home, to keep cost low, but still we provide complimentary towels. However providing towels is not guaranteed since we have few towels which are washed and cleaned after every accommodation. And in case if there is any accommodation booked prior to your stay then towels would not be available for your stay. And really sorry for inconvenience it have caused
