Lakes Jakaranda Holiday Units

Reviewed 18 July 2017 via mobile

Booked through a booking website. Photos were of a nice looking unit with brick walls, full kitchen. Probably very early 90s as very similar to our house that was built then. Happy with the description and photos we booked 3 nights

Upon arrival found that those nice units in the photos were the 3 at the front and the remainder were old 50s fibro shacks. We got a shack.

Did a walk through - walls were covered in marks, carpet was so dirty it felt sticky underfoot. Couches old, worn and dirty. Kitchen was decades old with a tiny bench and sink, digital induction cooktop with no instructions. No where to store groceries except the floor. Broken shower base. A huge crack through it with an large gap as one side lifted and the drain pipe with it. (Later on the shower base shifted even more while using it and 1cm crack became 2cm, frightening my young child who was using it at the time)

At this point we called for a refund as we would not stay as place was NOT as described or pictured and shower was downright dangerous. Management who admitted they knew shower was broken and would refund 1 of our 3 nights for us. They refused to budge, it was late and after a 5 hour drive with small kids we had to accept it. Suffered for 2 nights and left. Never again. Ever.

had the misfortune of booking this property in january 2017 for 2 nights. Was put in unit 2, which was dirty and stinking upon check in. Maybe it was not occupied for a while and the owners never bothered to clean it before their clients check in ! [ after all the money is already paid ]. The kitchen was ill equipped and instead of a cooker/gas burner, a small electric grill was provided. After we called management, a lady came over and surprised that this unit was dirty and had no cooking burner/hotplate. She then just suggested we make do with this as we were only there for 2 nights ! [ $500 for 2 nights] The fridge was atleast 30 yrs or more and the coffee table rickety ! The entire unit was in dire need of a clean and upgrade so as to enable guests enjoy decent accomodation and holiday.

Room Tip: dont know about others but dont take unit 2

Unit One - Spiders in the kids bedroom..big fat white tails! We saw 3 in the bricks above each bed. Our kids had to sleep in the loungeroom instead, see attached pic of the size of them, they have been there along time I'd say. The whole unit was out of date and the furniture was like something you would find on a hard rubbish pile! Stained couches and dirty carpets. $179 was outrageous!! It should be listed as $79 a night! Shower pressure was great but the shower door was cracked in two places and the walls in the enture unit have holes and dents randomly.. kitchen was generally clean and usable
Overall the place is over priced in its current condition but has potential in its location to be great

The accommodation was ok. Although there were only two of us it was large enough for two adults and three children. Great location very close to the Main Street and within walking distance to the beach. As we went out of season the cost was good.
