The house actually had 4 bedrooms (including a sleepout) with 3 double/queen beds and a single. The TV has foxtel which was a welcome surprise on our quiet nights in. Everything you need was there and even the start... More

Unbearably hot with no air conditioner working & over 40 degrees in the house. Manager extremely dismissive of our discomfort. House full of larger ants. No fly screens on any window, means hundreds of blow flies inside.
