pluses: comfy beds, great shower, well-equipped kitchen
the house is really good for a holiday stay - really well stocked kitchen, good bathroom, comfortable beds and heaps of room
we two and our little dog spent 3 nights at the beach house: it's an old place, but very comfortable and roomy
clean, tidy, comfortable, pleasant fully self contained older style house - a home away from home
Cleanliness:
we stayed here with our small dog - first time visitors to south west rocks and for us it was ideal
very comfortable, clean and close to all facilities
Host:
garage, fly screens, fans, dog-friendly, neat and tidy and totally close to beaches and pub etc
but no big deal overall but something the owner could fix at no great expense
the only downside are the blinds which don't work and as another reviewer mentioned, the old lounges
it's generally a good house and convenient position but needs a thorough clean - the window sills are all very dirty, very dusty under the furniture, hall runner, top of the fridge, skirting boards...
the team from rocks real estate were incredibly helpful and friendly
Location:
walking distance to beach, shops and eating facilities
this beach house has everything
really close to the bridge across to back beach which was perfect for talking the dog for long walks, and really close to the shops and main beach
the house is located on a busy corner in a high-traffic area so there is lots of car/truck noise and heaps of pedestrians passing by - it didn't particularly bother us, but if you're looking for oe...
also be prepared to take everything - there is not even a brush or dishwashing liquid

lost one star because of no a/c thats all
we would love to stay their again but without a/c we wont be able to however i would be more than happy to pay a bit more money to rent it if it was going to get a/c , but overall its a nice place ...

Cleanliness:
spacious, comfortable 2 storey 4-br house with 3 bathrooms was really good
Location:
found the 9am check out time a little too early, especially as the cleaner was there for 8
september is a good time to stay, but i think it would be too hot in summer, as there is no airconditioning, and the upstairs got quite warm, even in september
real estate attended to minor maintenance issues very quickly
