Lots of potential
The location of the property is great. Space of the house is also comfortable for a large group and it ensures everyone has their space. However, it was really disappointing to arrive to a dusty house. There were insects and lots of spiders in all the rooms and in the kitchen cupboards including a wasp trapped in a shower cap left hanging in one of the bathrooms. The bed sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers all smelled musty and the pillows have yellow stains. Luckily, we included a linen hire so we had clean white sheets and pillow cases to put over. I contacted Graham to request for the house to be cleaned however, as it was during Easter, he explained that no cleaners were available. This is understandable but we expect this to have been done prior to our arrival - I believe this is something ALL renters expect so we are not being unreasonable. He tried to explain that some baches have been vacant for months which could be the reason for the dust and insects/spiders which again is understandable BUT when someone has hired a bach, the management should ensure that it's been checked for cleanliness among other things (e.g. lights working, appliances working, etc,).
The house has a lot of potential - huge lawn, lots of space but the owners/management could greatly improve on maintaining the house and ensuring that it's in an acceptable condition when being rented. We've rented a lot of baches over the years and we do not mind insects/spiders here and there as it's only natural to get them but not like when we arrived in this house. The duvet covers in the downstairs bedroom also felt gritty and you could visibly see little black stuff all over. It was really embarrassing as we were with relatives visiting NZ for the first time from the USA. We tried looking for another accommodation but everything was already booked out due to the holidays.
Please consider buying new pillows as well as they have yellow stains which is unhygienic (we don't know what caused it!).
Hopefully this honest review helps make things better - the house really could have been lovely. Other than that, check-in and check-out process were easy and went smoothly.
Plenty of room for large family + relatives. Great space, everything you could need.
Was exactly as on description, although felt that "older" didn't describe it well... plenty of updates, an update on the photos would do it justice as great deck, lounge and plenty of toilet/shower space upstairs and downstairs not to mention the ample garden. No grumbles, great service first time in Kinloch and will definitely come again.
Spacious, great location

The house was perfect for us.
The house was perfect for us. There was plenty of room and we enjoyed playing ball on the large flat section. It was in a handy location close to the centre of Kinloch. We'd definitely return. Thanks
