We were looking forward to our stay at the property as we knew its location as we have family in this area of WA and have visited them many times. We thought, as this was the second time this year we have been out to WA that we would rent our own place for the Xmas period.
We were greeted by the owner, who showed us around the property - we had already paid for our stay in September, when we had booked it. The rooms were at the end of the owners property, I guess it was part of their original home as there was a door in our lounge to their kitchen where you could hear them talking and stirring their drinks! Not quite as private as we were led to believe from the advert.
The accommodation consisted of a lounge, a bedroom with a small kitchen and bathroom off the bedroom. For some inconceivable reason there was a huge (probably 6ft X 6ft if not bigger) wooden sauna in the lounge. We were told it didn't work. The leather sofa and chair were dirty as were the 3 seats around the dinning table. The wooden blinds were so dusty that when you opened them it sent showers of dust into the room. Everything was covered in dust and grime.
The most disgusting find were discarded sex AIDS in the drawer next to the bed, clearly this had not been checked. All the cupboards and drawers containers fluff, hair and dust from the previous occupant. The bedding was clean but not ironed. The floor was covered in dead flies.
The kitchen side had not been wiped and still contained crumbs. The cutlery drawer was dirty and the cutlery still carried the remains of the previous occupants meals. Yuk!
The kitchen was overrun with ants.
The bathroom sink was clean, as was the toilet but the shower screen was in need of a good clean and there were dead insects on the floor.
There was an abundance of air freshners in the lounge which gave off the most hideous smell - the bedroom smelt of dog.
On leaving the accommodation for the first time we were greeted by a pile of dog poo in front of our door.
We spent as little time as possible in the Lodge and stayed at our son's house for 3 nights - which was a shame because it is in the most amazing setting with lovely views of the lake.
If this couple want to make a go of their letting they need to buck their ideas up - big time.
We have made a formal complaint about this property to the letting agent.
Ps - there was no Fire Escape plan at the property. Dangerous when you know how often bush fires start in this area.
