I booked the White House for 25 nights . We arrived late evening and we were given instructions on how to get the key and get in which were all very clear and easy to do. The house was very clean and in quiet area of Geelong. We parked outside. The house is simply and tastefully decorated. It has been newly renovated so it's fresh and light and comfortable. The verandah outside captures the sun and is a gorgeous place to sit. There is a large backyard, with clothes line and table and benches. There is access from the back lane way but it involves unlocking a padlock and chain. On arrival that night we discovered that the toilet was broken and the toilet seat was falling off. There was no soap to have a shower, no place to unpack our clothes , the fry pan was broken and we had 5 coat hangers to use. There was no washing up brush and virtually non existent items to use in the kitchen. There was nothing to use for cooking in the (website hidden) be honest this was not the best welcome. I then opened the fridge and Yolanda had left some chocolate and wine. A nice touch. It's a shame it didn't extend to the more essential / important areas like toilets and shower soap. There are lovely cupboards in each bedroom but no shelves or even drawers to put clothes on. I spoke to Yolanda and she did come around the next day and bring some hand wash(?) for the shower and some more coat hangers , cheap plastic platters to use for eating and cooking (not sure they'd go well in the oven?) and some tongs. She wasn't going to supply a jug, tea pot or anything to make cofffe in like a coffee plunger. She told me that this is a 'basic' rental . So there is still nowhere to unpack your clothes into. She and Darren did explain that they were aware of the broken toilet and they brought a new seat to replace the old one. Perhaps they should’ve communicated this to me prior to us discovering it. We had an issue trying to open the only door/ window in the living room / kitchen area and Darren was terrific and came around quickly to fix it. He also replaced a few bulbs that had blown. Day to day the house is a beautiful place to be in. Light and airy and safe. It is worth pointing out that the businesses around the area use the street for their parking Monday to Friday so it’s hard to find a park during those hours . There are shops at the end of the street and Eastern Beach is a 1km walk away. It's also worth pointing out that the internet is very very slow and only one TV channel works in the Main bedroom. Darren and Yolanda are a delightful couple with a beautiful property. If they...
The White House was perfect. A lovely quiet street, plenty of space. We loved sitting out on the front verandah in the sun. We will definitely go back.
