Thanks for a lovely week here, we wish we had booked for two weeks (honestly). Loved the oven and Miele appliances - felt like home. Thanks also for the Sharp knives - a boon to a cook. We do not normally write glowing reviews as they can seem contrived and we prefer to read balanced reviews from other travelers, but in this case we were blown away by the views and the property as a whole.
What can we say about the Raby Bay Getaway other than EXCEPTIONAL, it was exactly as described and completely delightful. It is certainly one of the best holiday homes we have experienced in our extensive travels and we spent the first day saying "Oh Wow".
The property is a modern bright and very well appointed house in a gated community with the large deck facing the entrance to the marina. The view from the deck and main bedrooms was delightful. The garage was accessed by automatic door and the main house by key code. There were 4 large screen TV's and the laundry room was of course equipped with a Miele washer and dryer. The two main bathrooms upstairs were complemented by a further shower and toilet off the lounge area.
We were met on arrival by the delightful Neke who took care to ensure that everything was explained which was very useful, particularly the tutorial on the Miele kitchen and high tech oven.
The BBQ on the deck was a Weber and two spare gas bottles were provided in the store. There was access to the dock via a gate and steps off the deck.
The beds were very comfortable and with the quiet and zoned air conditioning, we slept well for the whole week. In fact just about everything you can think of was provided and we have never before stayed anywhere so well equipped and well presented.
The rail link to Brisbane is very close by (an easy walk) as is the shopping area with Woolworth's, Coles and a good selection of other shops and restaurants.
This place is Highly Recommended - my only reservation is that once this becomes well known we may not be able to get in next time.
