“Tired looking and definitely not clean”
Reviewed 10 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We have stayed in many accommodation types over the last few years but...on getting out of our vehicle there was a sense of disappointment due to the neglect of the exterior and then on entering the property we just felt it was tired and a bit unloved. It was when we had unpacked and went into the bathroom and looked at the kitchen that things became so disappointing. Bathroom...shampoo/cond/bodywash ....looking mouldy in containers...believe it was probably different product poured on top of remainder. Kitchen cleanliness not good at all. dirty crockery...dirty cutlery. There was a certain amount of dust and neglect throughout but even a chocolate handprint on the staircase...I hope it was chocolate. We rang owner and they did get someone out to clean again within 2 hrs but when even the cutlery drawers are dirty....you have to wonder how much love and attention is given...would not recommend.

It is disappointing to receive such a review.
I agree that the exterior of the property needs work and just today met with a painter who is to commence work on painting every villa in more modern colours. He will also replace some of the weatherboards which have been damaged by the weather over the years. Unfortunately, due to the cold weather in Daylesford, we have had to wait until the warmer weather to arrive to have the place painted
We employ a firm of cleaners who have a great reputation in the Daylesford area, cleaning a large number of rental properties in the area. I will pass on these comments to the owner.
We have recently put new furniture in the property, and have replaced all of the pillows and bedding with new luxurious products from the company that supply linen to the Windsor Hotel in Melbourne

“No Wifi but worth it”
Reviewed 3 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Only 3G phone coverage in the area and this villa has no wifi which was frustrating! Are we in 2016??

Anyway, it's a modern furnished and comfortable place near a wonderful lake - not far from points of interest. However, we went to start cooking and found ants all over the bench top and sink on both days.

Garden needs maintenance as its overgrown but I thought it gave the place a little more character.

“Better than it looked”
Reviewed 7 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This villa looked fantastic when we first stepped into it. It is clean, modern, tidy and comfy. The bed was really comfortable and the bedding provided was warm enough to cope with chill nights. All kitchen facilities worked well and having a coffee machine is a treat. The location is only 1-2 minutes drive to either town centre or lake daylesford. I do prefer drive than walk in a windy weather, otherwise it will be a nice stroll in the sun. I did like the heater which wasn't used very often in NSW coastal city as it generated a comfy warm feeling when family got together in the lounge room.

The down side is only minor. I would prefer the dish drainer could come with a bottom tray, otherwise water was everywhere during washing. The plantation shutter in the bedroom couldn't stop the early morning light, it's better to have a curtain installed.

All in all it was a nice experience.
