Relaxing and convenient place to stay!
We enjoyed staying at Duck Inn. The place is conveniently located to the shops, waterfront and restaurants. The place itself is relaxing and wonderful for pets. Everything we needed was available at the house and Kirstan and Laura were easily contactable and helpful. Thanks for having us! We’re looking forward to staying again soon!
The Pleasure is all ours,
The Duck Inn welcomes pet owners like yourselves and Credit to you both also, with the immaculate way you left our home. We look forward to your next visit.
Thankyou and Best Wishes
Kirstan and Laura

Weird and bizarre. Can not recommend.
I have already written an extensive review of our truly unfortunate experience at this place so we won’t repeat ourselves. We await the trashing of our reputation with interest given the horrible, shocking and rude messages we have received from them. Suffice to say, this has never happened to us in over 30 years of travel. Anyway there’s always one! We are particularly interested to see if we get our deposit back - something others may wish to check on. Needless to say, we are shocked and angry and we will be doing everything we can to retrieve it as we cannot determine why it would be withheld.
Its unfortunate that that you didn't enjoy your stay with us, as you said it all started off very well. As you said we did try to supply you with all your needs. When you enquired for a BBQ for your guests, which Isn't listed in the amenities , we went out of way and were happy to provide one. You state that you let us know that extra guests were staying with a pet, You did indeed inform us, After the Fact ,lunch time the next day if the email we received has the True date and time. and no pet was mentioned.
Every guest pays nightly the full rate for their private stay, for the whole house. When booking on the site, extra guests pay a smaller nightly fee (per guest). Part of your bond/deposit was held simply being as you didnt book you extra guests and animals and didn't have the courtesy to ask.
The clutter that you mention with foodstuffs are a few little basic things, water, icecream, tin food, chocolate bars. These items are for guests convenience, e.g late at night etc, which we also note you took advantage of, Hence the form we still have ,if required that you filled in and signed of the items you purchased.
We ask all guests to leave the property clean and tidy as seen upon entry!! We prefer not to go any further with our review at this point. But suggest maybe you would be more suited staying at a Hotel In Future. All The best .
Really weird experience. We can not recommend this place.
It all started out reasonably well. We stayed here for three nights. The place has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. We are a couple and paid the full rate. Firstly, some comments about the place. It’s quite nice though the purple in the parts that are renovated (it’s partially renovated) may not be everyone’s cup of tea. The major problem on checking in was that the place is cluttered with foodstuffs which can be purchased. And not just one or two. There are cans and cans of baked beans, spaghetti, chips, chocolates, cans of sweet cordial in the fridge, bread, butter etc etc. It sounds like a good idea but the practicalities are that there are very few places to put your own stuff. In fact after years of travel, we have never seen so much clutter in our lives. Bizarrely there are three supermarkets within walking distance. I assume this a way to value add and make more money. So at best, one could call it entrepreneurial- at worst very inconvenient. So the first night passed without incident. Our small dog slept on the ground in her bed. We asked if there was a BBQ as we had friends coming. There was no BBQ on the premises but the owners brought one. Our friends arrived with their dog (the place was advertised as dog friendly), a nice BBQ was had and as it was getting late, we offered them a bed for the night (there are two). Their dog slept in their van as we had advised the owners we only had one dog. I advised the owners of this out of courtesy. We had of course paid for the whole place. We checked out early this morning after stripping all the beds, cleaning as best we could (dishes washed and put away, floor vacuumed, available surfaces - in between all the clutter wiped. All our dog’s droppings removed etc). We have since received the rudest response from an owner we have had in 30 years of travel accusing us of breaking the rules for having another couple staying one night ( I reiterate there are no rates for one couple versus two) an accusation as to the state we left the kitchen (I asked for details and just received rude responses) and an indication they would be seeking “costs” (for what? The kitchen? Having our friends stay a night in a bed we’d paid for?) We were called “cheeters” and told to shut up with our attempts to get details of what precisely was the problem with the kitchen. Anyway doubtless you’ll hear the other side but for our part, we would not recommend this place with the current owners to put it mildly.
This is a very distorted account of what was actually said and done.
Perfect home away from home
A great holiday property! Spacious, clean, good location. Has all the creature comforts and the kids loved all the games and special treats on their pillows.
Thanks again for your hospitality, highly recommend!
Hi Carrisa, we are so excited that your family enjoyed the special treats, cleanliness and the comforts that were offered. Maybe next time it might even be better.
Happy New Year
Very clean well appointed property
Very clean, good location.
