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.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Peaceful weekend away
House is beautiful. Would love to know the history, so quirky. Loved it. Views are spectacular. Very peaceful surroundings. Really enjoyed our stay. Must note the Beds are extremely uncomfortable. The mat in master really needs a good clean or replacement. Understand it’s pet friendly and we did have our fur baby with us but the mat was very off putting for a bedroom. Wouldn’t normally note these things just a little unfortunate for the per night rate.

The oar house
The house is a combination of recycled materials and as such some parts are very dated - e g kitchen. There is also unpleasant smell that you can't get rid of. There is no mosquito nets on the kitchen windows so you can' t let the fresh air in. The location is awkward - and makes it difficult to get both to Metung and Lakes Entrance. The proximity of the so-called private jetty doesn't' help - the path there goes through a swamp and if you don't have a boat is not useful. Far from an ideal holiday accommodation.

Clean & Beautiful
The property was impeccably clean and very beautifully presented - lovely presentation and we felt very comfortable. A few minor issues with check in as the instructions directing us to the key lock box were incorrect and directed us to where it used to be, so we spent half an hour in the dark looking for the box. Also being an older property the windows rattled in the wind and the wind blew the windows in the kids room open as the latches were broken. These minor things would be easily fixed. Overall we would happily stay again and it was easily the cleanest rental we have ever stayed in.
