Great little spot
Loved our stay, wendy was very responsive and helpful. Would recommend!
Fabulous, most agree that along the river is the sought after spot in Aireys.
Great experience and beautiful scenery
Great cosy cottage and no problems keeping warm at night in the cooler months. Easy short stroll to the beach and enjoyed the local fish/chips and woodfired pizza. Had a great quiet weekend away!
Fabulous! I'm please the new rc/ac is doing its job. I'm sure it will also be appreciated during the summer months.
Nice Basecamp for an adventure
Quirky little shack close to lots of exciting great ocean road activities
Thank you for the great review for A River Bed Cottage. (appropriately named:)
Not for us
Let me start by saying that this 1 bedroomed property is located in a beautiful and serene area of Airey's Inlet. We really appreciated this.
Unfortunately, our intended stay had been foreshortened by illness but we made it for a night. This turned out to be an unwise move on our part. It was evident that various aspects of the unit had been updated but the essentials, such as the kitchen, had not been. Expected supplies such as adequate toilet paper and dish washing liquid were missing. Two spotlights in the kitchen had blown and the general level of cleanliness was not as good as we expected (particularly inside cupboards and drawers). The water was turned off because of a major pipe burst but fortunately, this was restored. Communication with the owner (who was away) and the emergency contact bore some fruit. We did not raise all issues with the owner because of the time difference & it was hardly appropriate to do so with the stand-in contact. The real killer was the bed. We had understood that this was comfortable. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I ended up spending part of the night on the sofa because of the hard mattress. It was also cold. Thank goodness for the reverse cycle aircon which was definitely needed! Just in case you wondered - there is no dishwasher despite the photo viewed at the time of booking on the website. Time for a refurb!!
Thanks John, I’m pleased you loved the location. I do feel I need to clarify a couple of things for future guests.
My housekeeper said she left 3 toilet rolls for a 2 night stay and enough dishwashing liquid. I do however apologise for the 2 blown globes and the interior cupboards if not up to my usual standard of cleanliness.
1. Shortening a stay from 2 nights to 1, due to illness is not a negative to my hosting or the property.
2. There was a burst water pipe down the street and the local water board briefly turned off the water. Also not relevant to the property or hosting. John discussed the situation with my housekeeper at the time.
3. I ensured John was aware prior to arriving that I would be away and made sure he had his arrival instructions. The emergency contact number was available.
4. It is impossible to please all guests personal bed type preference. This is the 1st complaint of many years hosting A River Bed.
5. I have tested in cold weather, the reverse cycle which is more than adequate heating. There is also an electric wall heater in the lounge room, a portable heating unit in the bedroom and heat lamps in the bathroom, all in working order.
I will continue to appropriately price my property for future guests.
Great little place in a terrific location
Property is neat, tidy and well maintained. Has all you need for a get away. Location is fantastic, short walk to beach, shops or cross the road to sit by the river.
I am so pleased you enjoyed A River Bed and all it has to offer. I look forward to having you stay again soon.
Pictures are deceiving.
Spa - the spa had not been maintained properly, there was hair stuck in the jets, hair on the base and dust around the base aswell.
Hot water - there was just enough hot water for 1 spa with nothing left over for a shower, despite the owner saying otherwise. Was informed of a booster switch to press in the event of requiring hot water immediately, we press the booster switch which took 3 hours to make the water room temperature meaning there was little to nothing for a shower afterwards.
Heating - there was an extra heater supplied which was too small for even the bedroom, let alone the cottage. Both heaters combined all day made the cottage 'cosy'.
Toilet - the toilet base had a light seam of mold where water was bubbling and leaking at a constant rate when the spa was being drained. There was dust all around the sides of the toilet and the toilet made a continues splashing noise which could be heard from the main room.
Misc - the shower head was continuously dripping, 1x heat light blown and hanging down with dust all over the light unit, ceiling fan was dislodged from the roof, 1 light glob not working in the main room and the apparent dishwasher that was shown in the photos was not there.
Contact with owner was very good but care factor for the cottage is very minimal. It needs a lot of maintenance and even more cleaning to be done.
Would not come back.
Thank you for the feedback. I have addressed these issues with my cleaner and plumber. The heating units in lounge and bedroom are enough for most guests if doors and windows closed however there is another portable unit in the laundry if required. Unfortunately there is not a dishwasher. I do not have this selected as an inclusion in the property facilities.
