Second stay and already booked for next year
Excellent location near Hopeman beaches. Members of our family live in Hopeman so we visit once or twice a year and this cottage is perfect for our needs. All necessary amenities provided including washing machine, tumble drier and dishwasher. We cooked a roast dinner for 8 in the well-equipped kitchen and seated everyone around the dining table comfortably. Beds are large and comfortable. Plenty of hot water. Good Wi-Fi connection. 2 tv's. Cottage was very clean and warm when we arrived after 8hr drive. The only negative for us was that the front door lets a huge draught in when it is windy (which it was) and which blows all the downstairs internal doors open making the house cold. A curtain over the front door and doors that stay closed would make it more comfortable.

The location was close to the beaches which were lovely but unfortunately the Old Salt House wasn't up to standard, the first thing was the outside where there was a wooden picnic table but the garden was very unkempt the back door wouldn't shut and had to remain locked, the kitchen was reasonable with a new fridge/freezer although the cooker needed a good clean. bedding was clean but the pillows had a stale smell to them I had to go out and buy myself a pillow, bathroom was very poorly lit. You couldn't see out of the windows as they were fogged up inside of the units. In all it lacked the attention it needed so disappointing

Probably the worst holiday rental i have ever experienced!
Unfortunately in a stunning setting of Hopeman Harbour, the views and setting are were it all ended, :-(. There were more negatives than positives in this property, while we were renting for a week in June 2017. Its such a shame, as it could have been a better experience. From broken fridge appliance, to shoddy bathroom utilities, i coukd go on and on... All issues we experienced were relayed over a 40 minute conversation with the letting agent with a hope they would considered our advise and recommendations...

Fantastic location
Comfortable and well equipped for a family of four. Lovely enclosed back garden which is a sun trap in good weather. Best of all is the location very close to the harbour for swimming, pier jumping and messing around in boats.
