Recently took our 3 grandchildren ages (10, 8 & 6) to KI, the accommodation looked excellent, hence we booked for 4 nights. Upon entry, we realised all was not as promised, like stepping back in time, going back to the “mission brown” era. Doilies, tablecloths, quilted bedspreads, you name it. The Indoor pool, no heating as promised, spa empty and not working, roof of pool area badly damaged consequent from some previous storm, were assured it May be fixed before our arrival, sadly not the case. The entire complex in desperate need of essential repairs, paint, general tidying of overgrown garden and rubbish removal. Approx 1hr after our departure we received a phone call from host as to why the white towels were filthy, how was she going to get them clean, red towels had holes in them, what were we going to do about them. We calmly explained to her, our apartment never had red towels, however, she insisted we did. Sadly very disappointed, looked so promising.

I'm glad that you said you'd enjoyed KI, and that the pool was also enjoyed by those really lovely grandchildren. Dear M, I did apologise that the pool roof damage was still unfixed, explaining that we had been unable to have that work done as the tradespeople who were to replace the alsinite sheets were all absorbed with rebuilding the huge amount of houses lost in the bushfire.. The pool was cool, only having solar heating until plumbers could attend.I do apologise that we were unable to achieve the warmth hoped for. This morning, a returning guest said on leaving that they love the apartments and the excellence of cleaning and presentation, and that they would be back. I trust that you too found other attributes helpful, including the special rate given The garden is lovely at the moment, especially the blooming roses, foxgloves and daisies. I'm sorry that there was miscommunication about towels. We've never had red towels. .We did ring to say you had left your ipad behind, so that you would have a chance to return and retrieve it, and I remember asking your family what the dark red staining on several towels was, hoping to be able to treat and remove the stains. Im sorry to hear that you were upset about this and would have liked to be able to explain in person. You will remember that we did not charge for this. We appreciate our guests and try to ensure that expectations are more than met. Kind regards Deidre

My timing couldn't have been worse really, I arrived on a Friday in Jan and the wildfires really kicked off that night, I only had 2 days on KI and they were a write-off. So it was a surreal and upsetting time to be on KI, I didn't really see anything and some lives were lost while I was there. The apartment was old fashioned but spacious. The kitchen wasn't as well equipped as required and the basics I would have expected weren't provided. It wasn't as secure as I would have liked either. But the host was really lovely and helpful. Although my check in should have been about lunchtime, I arrived a bit early and then a sign get being put up on reception telling me it was delayed, so I think I had to wait about 90 mins or so before I was able to check in, because she was helping other people (who weren't paying guests). Very nice of her but please prioritise me and then help them find alternative accommodation, as I'm the one paying for your service. So KI wasn't a massive success, but if it wasn't for the wildfires this accommodation would've been perfectly adequate for a couple of days.

Hi Verity Thank you for your comments.. You have just made a review in August for January? I looked for you but had no check in on the 4th Jan, so you must have been in a group? I am sad that it was such a difficult time, with stranded tourists, homeless residents, and closed sights. Very stressful time for everyone. Please, if you return, always let me know if there is anything you need. The kitchen is well equipped, but we are always adding or upgrading something :) Check in time is 2pm. Had we not been able to finish cleaning for an early checkin? i wouldn't usually keep anyone waiting longer thabn necessary, so I may have been on the phone and I remember it was difficult getting through to Sealik and provisers as quickly as usual, but evem only 5 mins or so. I did purpose-build a federation style ground floor accommodation, with Rosewood linen, which I still love. It probably is old fashioned a bit like me, but a classic. The swimming pool and gardens are often appreciated as well. We are all gradually getting back to normal. Some things are not open again yet, but Seal Bay, Flinders Chase,Parndana Wildlife Park, all the usual beach areas, and most other sites are open and doing well. I'd love to see you again some day. But I bought more Rosewood:) Kind regards Deidre

Working as a volunteer at the KI Recovery Centre in Parndana for a week, with the emotional load that those attending the centre were carrying, it was good to come back each night to the peace and quite of Acacia Apartments. I have never been in accommodation that was a clean and well supplied as this unit - room 2!

We booked a two bedroom apartment and upon entering was pleased with the spaciousness. The down side is it is outdated with the decor. The apartments are advertised as luxury but I would dispute this. It needed maintenance in several areas and although it was comfortable we were disappointed with these obvious issues. The manager was very friendly and went out of her way to supply us with ample breakfast provisions. We probably wouldn’t return unless we knew the apartments were updated and an improvement in their maintenance of them.

Stayed 9 nights in the Wheelchar Accessible Apartment. Deidre fantastic and caring host. Bathroom well set up. Large wheelchair apartment. Large carpet square placed by bed so that I could safely get up and get my brace/AFO on. Usually, the apartment is tiled through out. Possible to move van to concrete area for wheelchair loading and unloading. Breakfast provisions were great. Very quiet. OTR Service Station and Wayne at Nepean Motors very helpful. Thanks, Deidre. Hope to stay again. Thoroughly recommend it.
