We chose to stay here as we were hiking Broga hill, and was looking for a place that was nearby to attempt a sunrise hike. We chose this place as it was listed that there was wireless internet, able to provide individual rooms for 6 pax, and was 10 minutes away from Broga Hill, which was good for sleeping in. When I saw that the request was accepted and money credited, Blake immediately messaged me to inform that there was no wifi available, despite the listing indicating that wifi is available. While the option was there to immediately cancel and look for an alternative location, we decided to proceed due to the availability of a room for each pax, and the good location. Upon reaching the house, we noticed that there was a car obstructing the gates, which prevented our car from being parked inside. He did try his best by posting a note on the owner's car, but we understand that this is something that's out of his control. Ultimately, the car was there the entire duration of our stay. Perhaps leaving items outside like a bin to reserve the spot for future guests would prevent this from happening in future. Nonetheless, parking outside the house was still possible as there are a few empty houses in this neighbourhood. We were pleasantly surprised with how each bed had a blanket which was wrapped, pillow with a new pillowcase encased within plastic, new towels for our use, and also the clean house. However, the blankets could be improved, as it was only able to cover up to the stomach. We only found out upon arrival that only one room was air-conditioned, which we felt was a bit of a disappointment as we expected air-conditioning for the price of this listing. However, this is not Blake's fault as it's listed that air-conditioning is not available for this house. From another point of view, it's a bonus that there's a room with air-conditioning! We were very impressed with Blake's friendly and accommodating attitude, texting us a few days prior to make sure if there was anything he could help us provide. We also had the chance to try some nice food in town with his recommendation. This was shared with us via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps, and a photo of the place was even provided. He even offered to show us to the start point of Broga Hill, which was definitely something that was beyond our expectations. All in all, while we were a little underwhelmed with the house given the simple furnishing (not entirely his fault as there were no photos of the rooms yet at the point of booking), lack of internet and air-conditioning given the price of the house, Blake's friendly demeanor and willingness to help totally made up for it. We wish Blake all the best and hope our review will provide others with a better idea of what to expect, this being the first review.
