Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place was an amazing place, plenty of space to relax everything you could ever need, a real home away from home. The hosts were very welcoming and the property was ideally situated close to everything. A lovely base for our exploring around Esperance. Thank you we had a fantastic time

Recently spent a week in Esprance WA at the Doo Drop in. My partner and I were very happy with this lovely old apartment / house. It has all that you need for a comfortable stay. It is very spacious and clean. The gardens are very well kept with various places to enjoy a sit down after a days sight seeing in amazing Esperance. It is well located not far from town and the foreshore it is a great walk along the bay.I would recommend the DooDrop for anyone. The visitors book has comments from a host of various nationalities with a great percentage with thoughts similar to ours. Regards Rod and Sue

Had an old English charm which included the dampness and mustiness. The self contained kitchen had a tiny griller with two hot plates on top. The plates and cooking equipment was all old and mismatched (not fussy about the miss match but just made it feel more like a cheap back packers) it was clean enough and the hosts/caretakers were pleasant to deal with and very accommodating. The gas heater was noisy as anything. Basically it felt like the place had been let to go a little bit. While we were staying there was an inspection as it was up for sale. Originally they wanted $190 a night which there would have been a lot more to say if we had actually paid that but as there was a deal in a web page for only $135 we didn't feel as ripped of. We stayed in the main house so perhaps the barn is nicer? Either way we won't be back to check it out. Location is well out of town and right next to the industrial area and main noisy road.... The pictures were perhaps what it looked like 10 years ago.

We stayed in this accommodation for 2 nights in September & were very disappointed. The entry area consists of a corridor lined with 2 types of poorly laid lino & a washing machine! You then head up the stairs to find 2 small bedrooms, a poorly designed bathroom & the tiniest kitchen. It was impossible to get to the kitchen if someone was sitting at the dining table!! Again the floor coverings were at best described as shabby! We left our front door unlocked for a little while & one of their other guests came in & used our washing machine thinking it was part of his accommodation! Lucky he wasn't Jack the Ripper!! At $350 for 2 nights it wasn't cheap particularly as we had stayed in a beautiful 2 bedroom apartment at a caravan park in Albany the previous 2 nights for the same price! I also wasn't keen to find out that pets are welcome inside which was evident by the little pet door in the front door. There were a couple of guest books there that were full of praise but we would definitely not recommend this accommodation & I am generally not one to write negative reviews!

It is an old house that is divided (with doors only lockable from the owner's side) and shared with the owners. You can hear every creak, footstep and fart (us not them). It felt eery and we felt self concious of every noise we made. The location is very close to the main road that leads into Esperance. Its also right next to the industrial area of Esperance. Lots of traffic and noise from 7am to 7pm. The kitchen has carpet in and very minimal so dont plan to prepare any meals that require some cooking. Everything was very clean though. If you are like us and need some privacy or want to sit on the porch and drink a beer and not want to talk super loud over traffic noise then this is not the place for you. Wasn't worth the money.

Stayed here with 3 other friends last March. It was cosy, clean, breakfast was provided and the owners were really lovely to us. It made our stay in Esperance such an enjoyable one, without breaking your bank. You won't regret staying here.

A great two bedroom self contained apartment with great hosts. We were made to feel welcome. Accommodation was larger than average and lounge room area cosy and warm. Very clean and comfortable. Close to town. Would recommend to anyone wanting accommodation for family. .
