Was a beautiful and cosy spot, with a great proximity to the beaches.

The house was in a fantastic location, just a short walk from the house (or 2 mins drive) to some very beautiful beaches in Vincentia! The outdoor heated shower with two shower heads was also a definite plus! There was a lovely barbecue spot on the outside balcony upstairs, and you can hear the waves crash from there which is lovely, plus the backyard backs onto some bushland. However, the facilities inside the house were limited and a little outdated, with only one full bathroom on the bottom floor (the upstairs has one toilet, though it appears to have been a recent renovation as there is not windows/mirror, just a toilet and a basin behind a small door), and the kitchen facilities a little old too. There also isn't any linens or towels provided, which included kitchen tea towels, with some of the kitchen tools etc. being quite limited. The biggest problem for us however was lack of ventilation/cooling, the house itself heats up very quickly, especially on the top floor. There are two old, small fans provided for two of the bedrooms but nothing to really combat how hot and stuffy the house became. In an Australian summer proper fans or even air-conditioning is a must! We found it quite uncomfortable upstairs the first 2 days with the weather being in the mid-high 30's. Overall it was a beautiful spot, but there are definite areas that could be improved on.

We loved the location, especially loved feeling like we were in the trees, surrounded by beautiful bush land. The house was presented impeccably, very clean and had everything we needed. The service by Holiday Collections was very efficient and the arrangement for the keys collection was fantastic. Thank you. If we have another opportunity, we'd love to stay again. Thank you Jenny and Salih

Great house with a nice garden bush view. A bit smaller than we thought but still worked out well for us 6. Note that there's absolutely no tea towels, chux or anything else except if you opt in for their, in our opinion, expensive bed linen option. All in all I would say a 4 out of 5 which is not bad at all :)

Busy Baby was a lovely retreat. An old house, but loving attention to the decor made it very inviting and comfortable. A light-filled house with beautiful outlook into trees. We spent quite a bit of time playing games and relaxing at home due to the weather, but the large windows and bush surrounds brought the outdoors in, making it feel like we were not tucked away in a house but in a beautiful setting. It's an easy walk to some stunning little beaches, so even though it was raining on and off we were still able to explore the gorgeous bush / beaches during the dry patches. The beds were comfortable and the little heaters helped keep us warm. The kitchen was also sufficiently stocked and we enjoyed bbqs on the deck. Thanks for a great stay.

Perfect location to stay however the place smelt mouldy, broken shower door, food and recycling rubbish left in the kitchen when we arrived wasn't very welcome. Communication was poor.
