Quiet, clean, comfortable and close to the beach as well as other beautiful southwest attractions.
A lovely stay with comfortable beds/couches, a huge backyard and large undercover outdoor area. We loved the proximity to Dunsborough but not the busy-ness of being in the town centre. The beach is so close and the walk/bike path along the beach was fabulous. A very relaxing stay. Thank you.
Angela you were great guests. Your group treated the cottage as if it were their own and left the place in good condition. We are so glad that you enjoyed the peace & quiet of our part of the world. It was a pleasure having you stay. Thank you for your booking. You are welcome back anytime. Darelle
More like a beach shack/cottage than a beach home....
The vrbo fees and cleaning fees are too high..it meant we paid three hundred dollars a night for a small beach shack...the cottage was smaller than expected for a four bedroom and is furnished very simply.. the beds were very comfortable....however, if all the beds were filled the living areas would be very cramped...the property is advertised as dog friendly and is on a great dog beach and the dogs loved the property, however the backyard was not fenced well enough to stop most dogs from escaping as they may do when staying in an unknown environment.This was fine for our dog as she always goes everywhere with us but not so good if visitors wanted to leave their dog at the property.The large gate to the yard was just covered in large loose ringlock wire that a dog could push through. The spot is wonderful and of course in that environment we had a great time. It was very clean and had everything that you would need for a beach stay.... but be aware that the yard is very sandy and the doormats need upgrading.
Thank you Leah for your detailed review.
Fortunately you did have several very positive things to say. I’m pleased you found the beds very comfortable...most important when you are away from home. As well I was glad that you said that the place is very clean and well equipped for a beachside stay.
I agree with you that the beach and the property are marvelous for dogs, and children as it happens. I spoke with you about your dog and ascertained that he was unlikely to try to jump the gate or anything. The fence was damaged while the neighbour’s new house was being built. He has barricaded the gaps until the new fences are built this year. I’ll check out the gate. We have several repeat clients who bring their dogs and to my knowledge there has never been an escapee.
We advertise our place as Bayside cottage. There is no intent to portray the house as more than this. In the description it is described as a traditional beach cottage except that it does have a few mod cons that may not have been in a 60’s or 70’s beach shack. The maximum number of adult guests is 4 however children can also stay. When more than 4 people wish to stay, particularly if they have children, I explain to them that the 70’s cottage may be unsuitable and they might wish to find a place that has larger rooms. To date most people say that they want to stay in a proper beach cottage and want Bayside because of it’s close proximity to the beach.
I take on board your comments about the door mats needing to be upgraded. They are replaced regularly. Good mats are difficult to find but I will scout around to get better ones.
I also agree with you that cleaning and laundry costs are expensive in this area. That is just how it is.
Despite everything, you have said that you had a great time. I’m grateful for that. As for your criticism, it makes one think of course. At least some of your points can be addressed, if not immediately then in the very near future. This is our first poor rating out of 39 reviews in 5+ years. To date Bayside Cottage has a 5 star rating. I am dismayed but in the interest of not being complacent I thank you for your comments.
Very comfortable older style cottage
Although not the best week to visit Dunsborough although just prior to Easter, due to the weather and the seaweed well over knee deep on the beach, the cottage itself offered very comfortable amenities for the three of us, myself, husband and Chester our labrador. Absolutely everything required was there in the cottage including the very nice bottle of wine and chocolates. Thank you Darelle, a lovely thought. The backyard is secure for the dog and he had a lovely time out there checking out who had been previously! The back outside area offers a very comfortable area for outdoor meals when the weather is kind enough. Darelle is a very conscientious owner who phoned to make sure everything is as it should be.
Margaret...I’m so glad you enjoyed staying at the cottage. Mother Nature has her way of reminding us who is in charge. The beach will be white and pristine and just when we’re starting to take it for granted she dumps mountains of weed all over it! As it breaks down it is supposed to bring in the fish!
Guest dogs do love the yard with all its nooks and crannies, wildlife smells and lost tennis balls in the bushes.
We appreciate that you left the cottage in great condition. Thank you for choosing our place to stay. You are welcome back anytime. Best wishes...Darelle
Just what we needed, the beach and some quiet time
Thank you Spencer. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. You're welcome back anytime. Best wishes....Darelle
Relax and walk
Just what we were looking for, so nice to go out the door and within a minute walking the dogs along the beach. A lovely short break and wonderful recharge spot.
Great beach holiday for families with a dog
2nd time we've been here. It has everything you need. Great back yard for the dog and large covered patio. Beautiful safe beach and really lovely bike path just across the quiet road.
Thank you Karen. The cottage is in a wonderful location with the beach straight out the front. I'm glad that your family had an enjoyable stay. Darelle
