“Moved out after one Night.”

Can I say from the outset that I hate submitting a bad review but I have no choice as other travellers deserve to know and see the true present state of this rental.
We travelled as two ladies visiting an ill Uncle and Brother in Perth.
THE BAD; The Chic Shack we found bore precious little resemblance to the one pictured on TA.
It was completely unlockable (see photos) with missing window locks, no screens to keep out the persistent mosquitoes and all the external doors and some windows had been forced open with locks either missing or rendered useless so we spent a sleepless, scared night in bedroom 2.
The bathroom shower screen is cracked with a loose dangling rail which is a screen support.
THE INDIFFERENT; The kitchen cupboards pictured were not there and it looks like cheaper ones have been installed since the photo was taken, there is no dishwasher, there is a queen bed in bedroom 1 and two singles in bedroom 2.
THE GOOD; The owner (Margaret) was really kind and nice and she moved tenants out of the house she owns behind this one, cleaned it thoroughly and moved us into that for the duration of our stay. It appears to us that whoever is contracted to look after the premises on her behalf has let her down very badly indeed.
The house behind (in the back yard) however, was clean, lockable and quite nice really.
My suggestion would be to speak to her and ascertain if the faults have been rectified before renting this property. She has told me that the bathroom will be remodelled before Christmas and the kitchen updated in 2016. I note in her reply to the first reviewer that these things were to be done in 2013 but we can all change our priorities and perhaps it was then that she installed the house in the back yard.

Kay I understand your reivew and grievances. I agree there had been a delay in renovating the bathroom, it wont be remodelled before Christmas as I have back to back bookings. It is on the list during the winter period 2016. The other security items have been attended to. We offer this property at a budget rate to allow for items not renovated, it is rarely empty, which adds to the delay in finding down time space to renovate. I trust you will give us the opportunity to offer accommodation on your next visit. to Perth being such a convenient location only 7.5 k's to the city. Margaret Fort

I am pleased to say In November 2012 we extended and renovated the laundry to include double laundry troughs, a Bench and a full bank laundry cupboards with extra lighting and power points, next to renovate the kitchen and include a dishwasher in 2013.
