We used the pull along beach cart loaded with the free chairs, gazebo and blow ups provided at the house. The house is huge with everything you need for a great holiday. We did have a problem with the wardrobe door falling off its runners in the second bedroom and one of the castors on one of the beds was broken. When looking to see if we could fix it we found a pair of flip flops that were not ours. So if you've stayed here and lost your flip flops.....! A few more glasses would be helpful. The outside space was great. Pool, outside kitchen with a big BBQ & games room. The BBQ self lighter doesn't work so trying to light it with out matches and lighter was a challenge but a quick trip to Kmart sorted that. The fridge outside was a bit fishy as was the cupboard beside it so we didn't use them. The games room had a toilet which saved running upstairs in your wet swimming costume but there wasn't an outside shower that was advertised. The pool was great but the plants around were a bit overgrown but loved the chairs in the water. Perfect to cool off after the beach. Best to wear shoes/flip flops on the top decking and steps down to the pool as the wooden steps are well weathered. We didn't use the hot tub but a fab addition for the winter. This is a fantastic place to stay, I guess it's had a lot of people over the past year staying and is in need of its seasonal spruce up before it gets busy again and I would definitely recommend staying here.
