The photos for this property are misleading and the description lacking. For example the neighbours property is literally in the ''yard" of this property (the photos have been intentionally angled to hide it). With no fence or anything. We had no idea where our property started and his began and therefore did not get to enjoy the yard. The listing states it sleeps 8 but the 4th bedroom is not a bedroom at all, but an underhouse storage space. The house & linen were exceptionally dusty & musty. We were so disappointed with this - we were charged a $300 cleaning fee & then told (via laminated notes around the house) to leave the house spotless for the next guests as there is no professional cleaning service (?). That is not fair on us or the next guests. Despite our efforts to leave the house clean we are not professional cleaners and the house desperately needs it. I understand that there would be a demand for this type of property - but the listing made no indication of how BASIC this accomodation was. The first two nights were sweltering, above 30 degrees - the rooms have no air con... no fans... not even fly screens to keep the mosquitos and spiders out! There were holey, dusty nets over 6 of the 8 beds that had to do. I have honestly stayed in better equipped rooms for $3 a night in Cambodia. We barely slept the first two nights and then luckily the temperature dropped into the 20s for the rest of the stay. We all got bitten by an array of insects throughout the nights despite dousing ourselves in repellant, we were covered in red lumps by the end of the stay. It is very poor management to subject guests to this level of discomfort. Fly screens and fans should really be installed (even a plug in one from K Mart) - or mention in the listing how basic the amenities are so guests can weigh up whether they can live without flyscreens and / or haul over their own plug in one from K Mart. Location was lovely, however a care message with parking / ferry / walking tips would be helpful as we had to locate this information ourselves via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), we even had to find out the address on our own as it was not sent to us. The house was much too basic for the price we paid, even taking into account the New Years premium. It certainly has potential if some vital improvements are made. The TVs, the fridge, the soundsystem, many of the lightbulbs - not to mention the fans/flyscreens situation and the bottom room being more under-house-storage than an actual bedroom all need to be tended to as its obvious they have not been for many years. Again - some people may choose to stay at the house in spite of these things - but full disclosure in the listing description is required.

White Haven was positioned in a very special place. Surrounded by the bush and only accessible via ferry, is was it was very relaxing, especially on the porch. The house was pretty equipped however its downfall was the staleness of the house, towels and sheets. Everything was clean in terms of the surface however the house needed to be aired out and towels needed to be taken out of the cupboard and aired out. I am not sure if this was a result of a long period between guest staying.

This is a truly magical place! Such a beautiful setting amongst the trees with lots of wildlife. The house itself is not luxurious but perfectly comfortable, very peaceful and ideal for a relaxing getaway with friends. I would definitely recommend having a boat to get around if you can work out where to keep it at night to explore the nearby beaches. The ferries are hourly and stop at 6pm most days. We had a brilliant time having BBQs and swimming off the jetty. Thanks so much Nicole, we would love to come again!
