Our experience staying at Texada was somewhat disappointing. The Property description states; Texada is nestled within an orchard of plum trees and, during the spring and summer, is enveloped in foilage'. What it doesn't say is that during winter, when the trees are bare, you have a commanding view of the neighbours weed-infested back yard.
The outdoor hot tub was nice on a cold winter's day but felt very exposed in full view of the neighbours back door.
The accommodation is clean but fairly basic. The king size bed is comfortable; however, the heating in the unit was barely adequate, There was a small oil-filled column heater in the living room and a Nobo panel heater in the bedroom. Daylesford in winter is cold and the two heaters struggled to keep the place warm. The doona did not provide sufficient warmth and we woke up through the night feeling cold. A search of the apartment for more blanets proved fruitless; there was only one thin blanket available for extra warmth. We ended up sleeping in our clothes.
Despite having booked for two nights, after the first night we had had enough and decided to go home. I contacted the owner and requested a refund for the second night which was refused. I was offered an $80 credit towards another stay; however, we are not inclined to return.
I'm afraid I couldn't recommend this accommodation based on our experience.
