I stayed here with friends in March in a deluxe two bedroom villa. The location of Rayville Boat Houses is fantastic in a quiet street within easy walking distance to the beach and shops and the owners were friendly and helpful.
One area we all felt really needed to be improved on however was the maintenance, there were quite a few blown light globes in our villa and some of the windows upstairs in the bedrooms wouldn't close properly, so I'm glad we didn't visit in winter! The water temperate in the shower was also very touchy and it was hard to get a nice temperature that wasn't super hot or cold. I think they also need to trim up the bushes on the driveway as we were in a small car and it only just fit through, so I'd hate to think how a 4WD would get through without getting scratched. Hopefully some of these issues have been resolved as we did fill out the feedback form before we left.
Overall we had a nice stay but I don't think I'd rush back unless improvements were made.
