“Great location, house did what it needed”
Reviewed December 11, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We were racing nearby in Williamstown, so this house has been the perfect location.

There are 4 bedrooms downstairs along with 1 toilet and a bathroom (not including a toilet), along with 5 upstairs with 1 toilet, 1 bathroom (not including a toliet), and 1 en-suite.

The house is great, we only had a few issues:
The advertising says there are 5 bathrooms, there are technically only 3, and 2 toilets. It's not that many if you are bringing a large group.

The internet is pretty slow, although the owners obligingly took the restrictions off to allow us to use it after a few phone calls.

The cleaners were initially great, coming in every Tuesday (we were here for a long time), but after a while their standards slipped. We also found that if you moved any furniture, there was a lot of dust and grime underneath. Nothing a really good clean couldn't sort!

All in all we've had a really good stay.

Thanks for taking the time to review the house. We have felt privileged to have an international sailing team stay in our house!

The house is fully serviced and 2 cleaners for 4 hours cleaning every week during the stay, including sheets and towels professionally cleaned and beds made and changed. I am sorry to hear there was dust under the furniture, and it's a shame that it was not mentioned to us, you had 8 hours of cleaning staff a week to put that right!
The internet was initially set up for short stays, our guests are usually just browsing the internet, but the sailing group needed to download a lot more than our usual guests, and in response to their requests we upgraded and now have unlimited internet.
We also provided the group with an access ramp and extra storage and no extra cost to them.
I am not sure where it says 5 bathrooms, yes there are 3 bathrooms and 3 toilets.

“Location Location Location”
Reviewed November 29, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Spent a week in Melbourne for the Melbourne Cup and a few days of R & R. Holiday was made so much more easier by the convenience of the location of this lovely clean two storey home. Five minutes walk to buses and trains and taxi ride to Flemington was a breeze. This holiday home accommodated seventeen of us and was roomy enough for the week. Nine beautifully furnished bedrooms, my bed extremely comfortable, two bathrooms, two toilets and ensuite with extra toilet. Separate laundry available with clothes drier but outdoor line also provided. The open plan kitchen with all the benefits of home and dining area was fairly substantial although not a lot of room on one side of table but we managed. The lounge room was very small given the number of people but not everyone wanted to watch the cricket anyway! There was also a large BBQ and outdoor setting on rear balcony, and large TV & FREE WiFi.
The owner also left us a "welcome basket' of goodies including a very lovely birthday card for one of our family adding a personal touch. All in all an enjoyable stay.

Liked best: The location of the property was fantastic given our needs for the week. Very close to city.
Liked least: Maybe not enough baggage space in the bedroom. Mirror not over hand basin.
