Perfect place to explore west lake and the surrounding area.
Unsafe, dirty, but great location.
This property is completely unsuitable for young children and had so many things wrong with it, I will be complaining to the company we booked it through. The ceiling fans were hanging off with exposed wires, a plug socket was brown and overheating, there was no gate between the deck and the lake; my toddler spent the whole trip in his playpen because it was unsafe to do anything else. It was also filthy. There were no duvet covers on the duvets (one if which had a blood stain on it) there were ants everywhere, the microwave was disgusting, on arrival the only thing in the fridge was open butter with mosquitos stuck in it. We were given the wrong address and no phone number so spent the first hour, driving around, trying to figure out which cabin was ours from the picture. Thank goodness it wasn't hot; I wasnt going to turn on the ceiling fans, two of the patio doors were propped shut with bits of wood and on the other two, the screen doors were unusable ripped. The deck was unusable for us unless we wanted the children falling headfirst in the lake. Both bedside lights didn't work in one bedroom, all taps leaked and dripped and the shower had a huge leak. In the end, I was so concerned about my children's safety and it was so disgusting finding huge ants in the bed, suitcases, cupboards etc we left a day early. Nice location though.
We had such a great time, the cottage is clean and cozy, right on the water! We will definitely try to cpme again in the warmer weather to take advantage of the beautiful lake!! Thanks again!!
Cottage filty and run down , full of spiders outside and in cottage. Definately not worth the amount paid! But great location kids loved the West lake willy park
Thank you for your review, In order to improve this wonderful cottage in a great location on West Lake we take all reviews and comments online and offline into consideration. We have been renting this amazing cottage for 10 years now and have had nothing but great comments on this property as there are less than 10 properties on West Lake with a sandy beachfront perfect for swimming. Being so close to the beach will bring spiders, bugs, lots of sand and the smell of campfire. The cottage was built in the 1940's so the addition of the drywall, new counter tops and 2 giant glass patio doors along with a deck that spans the whole front of the cottage are very welcome additions to this cottage which were all recently updated. We try hard to please every and all guests that stay at our properties by offering great service and ammenities like Free Sandbanks Beach Passes, unlimited use at West Lake Willy Water Park and free Kayak rentals. We understand that not all customers are used to living on or near the water in a country setting so we understand each customers perspective as to where their review comes from. We hope you return to this lovely cottage in the future to see the new updates and continuing improvements.
Worst Vacation Ever!!!
I wish I could leave 0 stars because 1 star for this place is too much. We stayed at the Laughlin house and the place is filthy and run down. One of the beds had blood stains on the sheets. The add features 2 TV's but there is only one, which is not a big deal until it rains or at night when you have multiple families. I wouldn't cook food for a dog on the bbq provided...disgusting.
Booked a pontoon boat from the owners of the cottage at Westlake Waterpark on aug 3rd, but they cancelled and rebooked for the 5th. Regular price is $226 but they gave us a discount for $175, plus they threw in propane tanks for the onboard bbq. I was just about to leave the dock after they conducted a quick inspection when I (not them) noticed the fuel tank was on empty. About an hour in and a far away from shore we start up the bbq only to find out that the propane tanks they gave us were empty. When we get our credit card bill a week later we noticed that they charged us $226 on the 3rd and the 5th. Tried emailing and calling several times to get our money back but to no avail. We even threatened to call the credit card fraud department but got no reaction. It is now mid Sept and a case has been opened with the credit card company for fraud but we still have not received a penny back.
Thank you for your review of our rental property. Although we take all reviews seriously we hope this review was not written in a malicious manner. We have been renting this property for 15 years with over 250 guests that are very happy and satisfied customers. We are constantly upgrading all of our properties to accommodate all of our guests and their needs. Most of this review is based on the rental boat and the deposit that was received back.
P.S. the fuel tank on the boat is always full the gauge always reads empty as discussed in the pre trip inspection.
