House, fascilities and location

Samitha De Silva 11AM checkout - 11th February 2021

The house was in very good condition, clean, well arranged and ready to be occupied. All cutlery, crockery and glasses etc were in abundance. The house itself was very modern and good appliances. Enjoyed the stay very much. Only suggestions of improvements would be to get better ventilation to the middle room in the attic as this feels stuffy and no air movement. Also there is no direct access to a toilet from the three rooms upstairs. May be the ensuite could be made accessible directly.

The Great Escape

QTTQ - 10th March 2020

Thank you for a lovely spacious place for our family get away over the long weekend. The kids loved playing every day with the friend neighbours dog Blake. The amenities were quite extensive including chopsticks. There were dish washing tablets but no dish washing liquid or sponge. As mentioned from previous guests there is no toilet for the upstairs room so was a slight inconvenience to those who stayed in those rooms. No major issues and wood gladly recommend this place and hopefully come back in the near future. Thank you

Space for everyone and a quiet location

Joan - 25th January 2020

We all enjoyed our week's holiday at the Great Escape being a family group of 12 we had plenty of space both inside and out. A family of four joined us for 2 nights and all seven children aged 11 to 3 had a fantastic time playing outside in the expansive backyard. The house was spotless and had a well equipped kitchen and an excellent BBQ. Lovely quiet street with visiting parrots and koalas. Overall it really was a Great Escape !

Great place for a big family

EV77 - 16th January 2020

This house accommodated our extended family of 15 in comfort. It was spotless and well presented. Set on a large block within walking distance to the beach it's an ideal place to escape. A few minor cons: a couple lights didn't work so we had to rely on lamps. There wasn't adequate storage for clothes in all of the bedrooms. Some extra wall hooks and side tables would have been appreciated. Also the lack of bathroom facilitates upstairs was a bit inconvenient but manageable. Everybody enjoyed their stay and we wouldn't hesitate to stay again!

Stunning property
