There was a mix-up with saying our reservation was changed to 3 nights and paid for but when we arrived the hotel's reservation showed we only had one night reserved. The hosts were extremely gracious and accommodated us for the three nights even though they had no confirmation we had paid for 3 nights. I was very happy with the hosts' handling of this situation but annoyed with for confirming a reservation that the operator was unaware of. We had flown from the US to Australia and this could have been a real problem if they weren't able to find a room for us. The country retreat was exactly that. Lovely grounds and a very friendly dog who took us for a a walk to the creek to see if we could see any platypus! Main annoyance was spotty wi-fi particularly on the first day. The rest of the time it was better.

A loved and cared for property that shows
This place far exceed our expectations (I think the listing is understated). On arriving the dog, Sophie, led us down to the creek and within 5 minutes we were thrilled to see a platypus swiming approx 2m away from us in full view. Such a treat. The property is well cared for and loved, and it shows. Recycling, composting and separating our rubbish was encouraged, which I thought was great. A very lovely experience. Thank you.

Dirty, disappointed & unsafe.
Dangerous. Very dusty and cobwebs everywhere. Animal poo in corners and some ants, spiders ect. There is eco-friendly & then there is unclean. This place needs some work & a good spring clean! Very slippery front entrance.. When we arrived the owner slipped on the front deck area going into our unit. Tripping hazard into bathroom with raised tiles - very unsafe. Spa worked although seen better days with jet caps missing & falling off. Microwave worked but very old. Couch very dusty & unclean - do not look inside if you lose anything! Nice outlook towards the ponds & bush area but shame about the highway noise as soon as you go outside. Bed was quite comfortable. No DVD remote. $175 a night was a bit much to pay for a small 1 bedroom apartment with uncomfortable old furniture. Games room not set up when we were there, seemingly no fish in ponds (but it was July) & free breakfast didn't happen. To top it off after we left we were questioned about why we moved the couch. Seriously!? The view was the only good thing. Would not recommend staying here - get a rental house instead. Bridport is a great place, have stayed there many times & there are much better accommodation options in the area.

Good inside, but needs work on the outside.
Friendly welcome (by the owner and his dog), clean with a good kitchenette and plenty of space, and a rural setting, but near a main road. The outside badly needs some paint, and other work, and you need a car to get to town and the beaches.
