Sunrise Cottage Nook

Airbnb Exmouth WA

You are looking for accommodation and you do a search for Airbnb Exmouth WA. Great, lots of accommodation to choose from. But what actually is Airbnb, how do they operate and how does the booking proceed. These little tips are the most asked questions from my Airbnb bookings.

Insiders tips to how Airbnb works.

‘I’ve booked an Airbnb!’ I hear this one all the time. No you haven’t booked an Airbnb, you have booked a property/bed/shed/granny flat/caravan/shoebox through a third party website located overseas, called Airbnb. So great for Airbnb (the brand) to now have half the western world calling all holiday accommodation other than a hotel room an ‘Airbnb’. Great branding, well done.

When you book through Airbnb (like ALL third party offshore booking services like HomeAway, Booking.com, Agoda etc) you are paying them, not paying the owner of the property or the managers of the property. Airbnb pay us (the managers) once you are in residence. So if for some reason you need to cancel or change your booking and there is money involved, then all proceedings go through Airbnb, not us. Guests can find it difficult when they want to speak to someone. Operators are offshore and in different time zones.

In the enquiry stage through Airbnb. You cannot post any contact information. Guests will often say ‘ring me’ and post a mobile. This information is blocked from us. We cannot post an email or web address either. I totally understand that Airbnb want to retain security and also want to retain a potential booking.

Price differences

Pricing of your property, booked through Airbnb, will always be more expensive than if you booked directly with the managers or the owners. This makes perfect sense. Airbnb are a business, they need to make their cut as well as everyone else. So they will have their commissions, fees etc on top of what the owners may charge or the managers. The payout to us is roughly (as close as we can calculate) what we would have charged the guest should they have booked direct with us. The difference can be anything from $100 up to nearly $800 on some bookings. We have found that guests who do ‘shop around’ and eventually find us can claim some huge discrepancies in rates.

Saying all that, some guests just like to book through Airbnb as they are comfortable with the format and the procedure, and that is fine by us. We just want you to have all the facts.

Booking Direct

If you do a search for Exmouth Holiday Homes, which would seem obvious to me, you will find us on page 1. If you do a search for Airbnb Exmouth WA you will also find us the managers on page 1. Ningaloo Holiday Homes, page 1.

Booking direct with Ningaloo Reef Holiday Homes will guarantee you the best possible price, guaranteed.

When it goes wrong

So you have decided to book an Airbnb Exmouth WA property. You get there, only to find it looks nothing like the photos, it is filthy and you are stuck in an industrial estate. I say this with some certainty as this is what happened to some desperate guests who rang me today looking for accommodation today. Trying to get out of their Airbnb booking which was ‘nothing’ like the photos or the description. These sorts of situations are very rare. But, buyer beware! Think it through. Anyone can list their ‘place/space’ for rental. No checks or balances.

#bookdirect

I am not having a go at Airbnb, on the contrary, I stay in many holiday homes which I have booked through Airbnb, and have only had great experiences and quality accommodation. But if I see that the property is hosted by ‘Mary’ who hosts another 10 properties in the town, then I most definitely go out of my way to find ‘Mary’, as she will give me the best price, the personal service that I may need, and I know for sure that what I am booking is what I am going to get.

So instead of automatically doing a search for Airbnb Exmouth WA, how about looking at the local businesses that are also listed on page 1 of your search results.

I will jump off that soapbox now. #bookdirect

Choosing your Ningaloo Reef holiday accommodation

Exmouth accommodation - The Deck Lounge 2
Great Family living and a massive outside deck area

When it comes to booking a holiday, everyone researches their destination and most plan an itinerary to make sure that they make the most of their holiday time. But how much thought actually goes into booking your Ningaloo Reef Holiday accommodation?

Spending a bit of time thinking about what you need from your Ningaloo Reef holiday accommodation can be the difference between an average and an awesome holiday experience. Far from just being a place to sleep, choosing the right accommodation for your needs can take the hassle and angst out of any holiday by ensuring you have easy access to all the facilities and comforts that make a holiday a holiday.

This is especially true when booking a holiday home because, apart from being self contained, each one can offer an entirely different experience. Booking the right one is an easy way to make your holiday even more enjoyable.

So what are some of the things you might need to consider when booking a Ningaloo Reef Holiday home?

If you are heading to Exmouth for a family holiday, you might need to consider whether the property has beds that suit the age of your children. Do you want bunk beds or would you prefer king singles? Will an extra bathroom make it easier to get everyone through the shower after a day at the beach or out the door in time for your whale watching cruise or dinner? Proximity to the water playground and parks may also be a factor to consider, as well as whether or not you can walk into town for groceries, lunch or shopping.

If you have younger children you might prefer the security of an enclosed garden for the kids to play and undercover areas for playing during the hotter parts of the day.

Sailfish, Cobia, Coral and Poinciana are all popular homes for families enjoying holidays in Exmouth.

If you are looking for a couples retreat or a girls weekend away, you might prefer a luxury canal side apartment like Wave with a modern kitchen, private outdoor dining and canal views. Or are you looking for a house with a pool or located close to restaurants and Mantaray’s Resorts excellent cocktails?

For sailors and fishermen, you will need to book a holiday home that has enough space to securely park the boat and store your fishing gear. Poinciana, Pelican, Wahoo and Cobia have plenty of room for boats but if yours is on the larger side you might consider a canal side property like Whaleshark or Desert Rose which have private moorings that can be used throughout your stay.

So next time you are planning a holiday, take a few moments to consider your accommodation needs because booking the right holiday home can be the difference between a good and a great holiday experience.

The Best Accommodation in Exmouth

 

One of the best accommodation in Exmouth
One of the best accommodation in Exmouth

The Best Accommodation in Exmouth, it’s a phrase I often hear from potential booking enquirers. It s also a search term that I often use when looking for accommodation when researching holiday accommodation. I want the the absolute Best Accommodation wherever I am going. Then I check the price tag and go back to the mid range accommodation.

What makes the Best Accommodation in Exmouth the best?

It means many things to different people. Here are some responses I get when I ask the question:

  • The most expensive MUST be the best accommodation in Exmouth. Do you think? Well it can be possibly the most lavish or luxurious if it’s the most expensive. But does that really make it the best for your needs?
  • The biggest hotel/provider must be the best accommodation in Exmouth. Do you think? Well you could presume that they are the biggest because they are the most successful. Sometimes it is the butter theory….spreading your resources thinly across a giant piece of toast. Or that ‘cookie cutter’ approach where every room looks and feels the same. mmm maybe not the best then!
  • The cheapest is definitely the best. Many holiday makers love cheaper accommodation working on the principal that it’s only a bed to sleep in an a roof over their head. They want to spend their funds of whaleshark dives, dinners out, fishing charters…not on accommodation.
  • For some, the best accommodation is something out of the box, a bit quirky, something totally unlike their own home. Staying in something completely different to home is part of the holiday experience. Adding up to the best experience.

So without going too much into the sales pitch, I think that Ningaloo Reef Holiday Accommodation can just about tick all those boxes. With the exception that we are not the biggest holiday home provider in Exmouth. With only 25 properties, we are the second largest from two operators. But holiday accommodation is all we do. Yep, that’s it. All we do is rent out holiday houses, manage holiday houses and provide you with the best accommodation in Exmouth on the Ningaloo Reef.

Exmouth Holiday Homes

I have many lavish and expensive holiday homes with all the bells and whistles.

I have just enough holiday homes to offer something for everyone. In all price points. Different sizes, different layouts, different amenities. And remember, holiday accommodation is all we do. So our whole focus is on the best holiday home in the best condition for our most important guests.

I have some of the cheapest in price holiday accommodation in Exmouth. I have holiday homes which can sleep up to 8 occupants, with parking for multiple cars, that are pet friendly, spitting distance to town…..and cheaper than staying in a two bedroom chalet at a caravan park! All linen provided. It’s a no brainer as they say.

Every holiday home is different. Each property is uniquely furnished and decorated to the owners taste. Definitely unlike your own home, but still a home away from home.

Pet Friendly Holiday Homes in Exmouth

Pet Friendly Holiday Homes in Exmouth

We provide the biggest selection of pet friendly holiday homes in Exmouth. We love our dogs, and why shouldn’t every member of the family get to go on holiday. I personally wouldn’t dream of leaving my dog behind. It just wouldn’t be the same. And Exmouth has such wonderful beaches for dogs to run and enjoy. It is a dog lovers paradise. But a little local knowledge goes a long way.

Pet Friendly Holiday Homes in Exmouth

Dog Friendly Houses

Whilst we have many holiday homes accepting pets, this does not mean that every pet friendly home will be suitable for your pet. So don’t presume that the fences will be high, the gates will be padlocked, the dog will be allowed inside…..it is up to you when you make an enquiry to ask the questions, to ascertain the best fit for your particular dog. Some houses will accept 1 dog only, some two.

No more than 2 dogs are allowed to reside at a property as per Shire Regulations. There are many nuances and it is foolish to presume that just because a house is ‘pet friendly’ that it will work for your dog. We know dogs, so just ring and ask us.

Dog Friendly Beaches

Every morning and evening the beaches around Exmouth are filled with dogs getting their sunrise/sunset walks. The Town Beach northwards, and all the beaches from Bundegi Beach down the gulf are all ‘off leash’ dog friendly beaches. There is a small patch directly underneath the Town Beach to the Yacht Club, which is off limits to dogs and cars.

Over on the westside (or the Ningaloo Reef Side) of the peninsula, there are only a limited number of beaches available. Basically, all beaches up to Tantabiddi Boat Ramp are dog friendly. After that, you are in National Park where no dogs are allowed. But, be very mindful when taking your dog to a beach on the westside. The stretch of coast line that leads up to the National Park is also a Turtle Sanctuary. This means that Turtles nest on the beach at times of the year. So at sunset you need to be very mindful. Also if you have a dog that could dig up Turtle eggs then please don’t take them to the turtle beaches.

Contact the Cape Conservation Group for more info or visit their site www.ningalooturtles.org.au The Rangers at various times of year bait the surrounding dune area with 1080 poison to detract egg stealing foxes. Contact the Department of Environment and Conservation office in town before heading out to these beaches. http://exmouthinfo.com.au/directory/305/department-of-parks-and-wildlife

So all that said, finding a selection of pet friendly holiday homes in Exmouth could not be easier. This site clearly indicates on the top of every page all the pet friendly holiday houses in Exmouth which are available.  Or click on the link for redirection now www.exmouthholidayhomes.com.au/feature/pets-welcome/

Send an enquiry stating the age and type of dog you have. Also a bit about his/her habits. Is it an active dog, a sleepy dog. Will it be out all day with you every day. That sort of thing.

I cannot stress enough. A dog that is lazy and sleepy at home, usually will not be the same when it is travelling. Most dogs in a strange environment will be trying to set new boundaries and often, many dogs get anxious. Don’t presume that how your dog behaves at home will be the same as how he behaves on holiday. After all, we all can go a bit crazy on holiday!
