A nice property but we had some issues

  • 2 of 5

What a tricky review to write...on the one side, I want to provide an honest report that other 'Stayz' customers can rely on (I'd want an accurate review before I booked a place after all) but on the other, I want to be fair to the owner(s) who seemed to try his best to sort things out when they were reported to him.

I guess I'll try to be balanced and detail the problems followed by the solutions that were provided but before I start, I'll say that it is a very sweet house, a short drive (or long-ish walk) to the beach, that SHOULD be a great place for a family to stay if the owner has made good on his assertion that he will address all the issues that he is now aware of. I should also point out that, I fully understand that the issues came about due to fairly specific circumstances and that whilst he SHOULD have checked the place before we arrived, he didn't and trusted a third party to ensure that the place was fit for guests...I'm guessing he won't do that again. Anyway...

Problems - There were honestly WAY too many to list here, from the kitchen worktops being dirty (and I mean DIRTY as in, not cleaned at all), broken and dirty cutlery, used towels hanging in the bathroom (plus a used disposable razor), a spilled beer bottle under the sofa, leaf-filled murky pool, to broken/missing fly-screens, old screwed up tissues in one of the cupboards, a key broken in the front door (making it unworkable) and dirty dining room seat covers, to stuff that was listed on the advert for the property but was either not there or not working, such as no wireless internet, no Foxtel, pool spa broken, DVD player broken, and both shower doors broken (trust me when I say that this is just SOME of the problems that met us when we arrived).

Talking of when we arrived, there wasn't even a welcome note to let us know basic details like how to use the washing machine, how to get to the beach, local medical facilities, emergency numbers, the wireless internet password (if there had been wireless that is), etc etc.

Also, when we tried to call to speak to someone about all the problems, it took over two hours before we were able to get hold of anyone...just lucky for us the problem wasn't that we couldn't get in and were stuck outside in the rain!

Now for some positives...

Unfortunately, the majority of solutions came way too late into a 5 days holiday to make a huge amount of positive difference to it (especially as for 3 out of those 5 days I was on the phone trying to get
