We chose Rumah Kita for its size as we had 7 people, and thought we would treat ourselves in our last days of our trip to Tasmania. The high price of Rumah Kita mislead us into thinking it would be a comfortable holiday house. It is large, but instead of high end accomodation it is more like a student house lived in by a bunch of 20-somethings. A lot of the fittings were broken, and one room was just out of bounds as it smelled like something was dead in it. My childrens' room next door also had a strange odour to it. There is a big fireplace upstairs which is capable of heating the sitting room, and small heaters in each bedroom, but in general the rest of the house such as the kitchen and dining room, felt cold. I read that it had underfloor heating but despite the many notices around the house there was nothing about how to turn it on. I ended up contacting the people at Sheoaks who are in charge of this property, and was told how to put the heating on, but that it would take at least 6 hours to warm up. Considering they knew we were coming and that it was cold I thought it would be a no brainer for someone to pop down in advance and turn the heating on, so we didnt have to freeze for the first day of our stay. Upsides of this house is that it is close to a path leading to a rather lovely windswept beach, the sheets were clean (thank goodness) and the bathrooms were clean. Oh, and it has a great view. But I'm sure many other Coles Bay properties do too. I would give this place a big miss.
