If you are sensitive to odors, select another place. Old urine smell dominated the property. My sheets were not clean (there was a pubic hair in my bed), and I found a scorpion in the kitchen. Not impressed.

An old fashioned beach house. Immaculately clean, well appointed with fully equipped kitchen. A good sized space, low key and comfortable.

Big house with high privacy
Spacious house with own garden. Well-equipped kitchen (no dish washer) and washing machine (washing powder provided !) Upper floor 2 bedrooms share the same bathroom in which the bathroom has 2 doors! Need to lock/unlock the door of another room before and after use. No door for one of room on the upper floor. Very dark neighborhood. A bit difficult to find the house after dusk. You cannot see the house from the street, only the gate with a small lot no. sign. The driveway of the house is unpaved. It rained on the day we arrived after 6. I have to step into the mud to open the gate ! Close to Port Arthur historic site.
Felix, hk2 night trip

1st night was great; fabulous view; property met our expectations. A power blackout the 2nd day/night/next morning = wasn't even any water. Obviously fairly common occurrence, as there were torches with instructions to use in the event of a power failure + emergency mobile number posted at the front door. Fortunately it answered pretty much straight away, as the keypad entry required power to work. The torches provided were the wrong type: chewed through 4 batteries/hour; we bought some batteries off a neighbour but then ran out. No candles supplied; luckily we had plenty of charge on a tablet - we ate by tablet-light +torchlight from our own little travel ones! The bbq's ignition battery was flat + no matches. The same friendly neighbour gave us a lighter. We had a bbq dinner and had cereal for breakfast, but no water for shower or coffee. The property owner did arrange with Expedia to get a refund of the 2nd night's cost, which was appreciated. We would recommend good torches, spare batteries, candles and matches + large bottles of water. Just as well as we called the property owner to see if we could check in earlier than 2pm, as we hadn't received/been sent the email with the special access instructions re the keypad entry. He did send an SMS straight away.
