The home owners may wish to consider upgrading their home's heating and air system. We were unable to enjoy the large Family area unless we had coats and hats on, causing us to close ourselves off in bedrooms to keep warm. Only small space heaters were provided in the rooms, some…

Terrific location for us to attend the Sail Melbourne Regatta. We are two families, and we had plenty of space for four adults and six children. Great kitchen and laundry facilities, plenty of beds and a lovely quiet, peaceful and private garden. Paul was great communicating with…

This house would have been perfect for our needs - 3 couples and a baby if it had been clean. We had to vacuum, mop, clean and dust before the couple with the baby arrived. Cobwebs and grot was awful. Kitchen cleanliness was disgusting.

Response from Lara:
We'd like to respond by clarifiying that this review is unfortunately fairly inaccurate and misleading. We take pride in offering our home to guests via Airbnb, and have many 5 star ratings over the past year from happy guests. The house is always cleaned entirely before guests arrive. It had been vacummed, and each room, kitchen and bathrooms completely cleaned. As it is spring, cobwebs can form overnight, the kitchen was clean, however the oven does need a professional clean. Paul, as arranged, popped in the Friday afternoon to check in with Locky and co and ensure everything was okay and they were happy. As you'll see from previous reviews, he goes out of his way to ensure guests enjoy their stay and said if you have any issues, please don't hesitate to call me. ...We never heard anything from them until this review appeared. Paul and Lara are both very approachable and easily contactable and would have been happy to subsidise the cost or call in a cleaner for the issue they had. .... Having said this, we are responding to this concern by hiring a professional cleaning company to give the house a large spring clean, tomorrow. We look forward to having new guests stay and by nature, Paul is always making improvements and updates on the house, decor and gardens as he is a very creative and proactive builder/landscape designer. As I write this, Dad is replacing the fly-wire on the front door.... we are always striving to make things even (Website hidden by Airbnb) for future guests, we look forward to sharing an amazing and stunningly bright and shiny home! :)

Paul was brilliant - very communicative and helpful. House is lovely location and we were surprised how big it was - more common areas than were needed for our group of 8 adults. Seemed good value & homely.

Paul who was our contact was amazing. He accommodated many changes that I made in regard to guests, the house was comfortable and clean and we arrived to beautiful home made muffins. We were staying for training at a local college which was long and rather intense, so to come bac…

Linen wasn't clean, No doors for bath; no lock for the side door; Repairs in the house was going on and large glass doors and mirrors were left leaning against the wall in an unsafe condition.

Response from Lara:
Thank you for your response however these are not entirely accurate and perhaps misleading Firstly all linen had been laundered and freshly changed onto all beds etc the day before any guests arrival Both bathrooms have internal cavity solid sliding doors which completly close for total privacy Really don't understand how these could be missed and not used The mentioned side door is only accessible via the lockable garage However ,noted and a chain lock will be added The large glass mirrors were viewed well prior to guests arrival during an inspection and fully removed and the mirror was one which simply leans safely against the wall as is currently used in many stylish homes
