“Great family atmosphere ruined by old lumpy mattresses and flat pillows.”
Reviewed March 26, 2011

This place looks cozy in a strange Lord of the Rings Hobbit sort of way. Huge trees with lots of room for young children to run and play. Picnic tables for outdoor dinners and a nice hot tub to soak in after a day at the beach. We rented two of the large cottages for 8 adults and 5 kids aged 2-6 years old. It fit everyone comfortably. The interior of the cottages was rustic. The kitchen appliances and bathrooms were old but fine for our family on a budget. However, the condition of the beds were completely unexceptable! One of the hide-a-beds smelled moldy and was unusable. Another matress, in the "master" bedroom was easily 2 decades old. It creaked and we could feel the springs as we slept. The owner operators were not very warm either. He sent his teenage daughter to tell us that we should not use a particular picnic table. And he was hesitant to get the hot tub working for us when we arrived. This place needs an update!

Hello,

We are very sorry that your experience here did not exceed your expectations.
We see that you stayed with us in the summer of last year; since then, we have renovated the bungalows on the exterior as well as the interior, including the mattresses and the pillows you have mentioned. Also, there have been changes in the management as well.

We strive to meet our guests' expectations.
Thank you for your time to write the review and we hope to have you back.

BEWARE! The location shown on Google Maps is wrong! It appears to be 2 blocks away from Victoria's Inner Harbour. Instead, it's 25km away! Unfortunately that's all I can say about this place, since we cancelled our reservation on the phone, standing outside of the wrong address.
