    The owner never gave check in instructions until after i checked out then an email came through. and check in took nearly 1 hr because he kept talking. Not time i had to spare the night before my wedding. The floor boards were so dangerous and should have been fixed as soon as possible. The floor was warped he did warn us on check in but it was still very dangerous walking in the hall way. Internet wasnt working owner asked us to fix it when we checked in.

    Very very disappointed for what we paid. 2nd bedroom like a shoe box with no windows. Firstly the whole process of getting the key is uninviting. Next had trouble opening our door- the lock was lose & it took lots of goes to open. 3 wine glasses that didn’t match; no table to sit at; No face washers. It was all odd. And finally couldn’t open gates to exit- luckily another person came along and used their keys to exit the car park.

    You will need to let yourself in as there is no one on site. Detailed phone/text instructions regarding this can be a little confusing. Car park is tight, luckily we had a small car. The water view is from a corner of the balcony. The second bedroom has no window or storage. Main bedroom has a large window and inbuilt storage. Blankets would be a nice addition as duvet is too hot in summer. The unit has a washing machine in the bathroom however dryer is in main bedroom. Large open lounge/ dining area however no dining suite, only bar stools at breakfast bar. Comfortable lounge with air conditioning. Overall the unit was acceptable but not luxury.

    Entry wasn't clearly detailed before arrival, room's facilities are very basic and average in comfort, waterfront views are minimal.

    Check-in was a hassle, after calling the day before check-in I was told check-in details will arrive via email on the morning of check-in. After not receiving the details by midday, I called again and was told they would arrive before check-in time (3 pm). At 3 pm when I arrived at the property, I had to call back, and the owner then met me onsite as the property was still being cleaned. I had to park on the street as the cleaner was parked in the apartment carpark. Upon entering the apartment with the owner, the cleaner advised the blinds had fallen off the wall. The owner then attempted to fix the blinds for 45 min. They were left hanging by a screw. The owner then went to his car to get the sheets and blankets for the beds. Finally, sometime after 4 pm, the owner left. It was very frustrating.

    Excellent location, great facilities Unfortunately woken at midnight by group of drunk locals carrying on outside- unfortunately our room was almost at street level so noise was loud. Am sure this is a random act. Definitely wouldn’t deter us from visiting again

  • 2.0.Poor

    A disappointing stay.

    First the good points: The location was brilliant. Now the bad points: Apartment was smelly, floorboards were warped, walls needed painting, door handles broken and locks missing or damaged, furniture looked like it was picked up off the side of the road, very low water pressure in the showers, bathrooms and laundry not clean, rubbish left on the balcony, TV in the master bedroom missing. We also had a safety issue with balcony sliding doors not locking properly and a man had jumped onto our balcony from the footpath and opened the sliding door (not the fault of the owner but we had locked the balcony and the lock had failed). I spoke to the owner and he told me that he was aware of all the issues and that the apartment was 18 years old and in need of so work, but hasn't got around to it. He offered to fix some of the issues but we were travelling with our 3 month old baby and needed the apartment as a base, not having tradesman working while we were staying. We were so disappointed because we were looking forward to enjoying a modern, clean, 4 star apartment on the waterfront of Geelong as the photos showed but unfortunately we received the opposite.
