Awful! This was a low end boarding house with 6 units and an awful stench in the air from a local mill. Obviously the owner does not live here and is just using Airbnb to advertise his terrible boarding house. The "Deluxe Queen Studio" was small cramped little room, with a terri…

Response from Brent:
Hi Jeanette, The low end boarding house your referring to, was built over 100years ago and carry's a lot of tradition in our country. It is know as a 'Queenslander'. The home was originally that of a Sugar Mill engineer and ironically was located very close to the local mill you referred to in your review. It was then later relocated to its current site. The mill you refer to is called 'Plane Creek Mill' and was built in 1896 and also represents an important part of the history in our region. My Grandfather who is no longer alive, was a cane inspector and employed by the same company who owned the Mill. I have heard the smell from Plane Creek Mill described as many things such as refrigeration type smell; like leaves burning or a campfire, however certainly never have I heard it referred to as an 'awful stench'. In fact the smell of the Mill is very rarely discussed, because residents in the area generally have some connection to it, recognise that that it is an important source of employment and the economic benefit it has brought to the town for the past 120years. In fact the township of Sarina exists because of Plane Creek Mill. If you wanted to learn more about the mill, you could have booked one of the tours that they run daily for tourists to learn about this including the opportunity to taste test the many foods and beverages that are produced from the mill in addition to sugar. With regards to the house itself, I purchased it 12 years ago from an older couple who due to health reasons the reluctantly moved into a retirement home. They loved the house, the 5acres of beautiful bush land that it sits on and were grateful for the opportunity to live amongst Australian wild life. I have since spent a considerable amount of my own personal money renovating the house and I hope that it may be around in another 100years and that many other people will get to appreciate it. At a cost of $84 for one night, I believe it represents great value. The only thing available in Sarina at a similar low price of $85 is a local pub room which is about 1/3 of the 17sqm Queen room with ensuite you stayed in and have described as a 'small cramped little room'. I'm not sure how this pricing compares to that of your home country, but it is clear to me, that the budget you set, is out of line with your expectations. Therfor I recommend on your next Airbnb booking, you swipe a little further right on the price bar. I also recommend that if you cannot find any positives in your travel and cannot respect the history of the places you visit, that you would probably be better off staying in your own country. FYI - My family and I did live in the house for a number of years and loved our time there. We have since relocated to be closer to our business and made the rooms in the hour available for rent. We have also arranged for a caretaker to live on site as we believe that for most guests, this will provide a better experience.
