lovely home in a perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

My family & I stayed at the Dream Catcher beach house for a weekend in Feb & couldn't fault the home or owners. The house is in a fantastic location within easy walking distance to South Beach, cafes, restaurants, the rock pool and Jetty. The location was fantastic and only a short drive to the shopping centre and bass point reserve which is a must see! The house is very clean, spacious and accommodating for a family. Beds were very comfortable, had everything and more you could need for a short or long getaway. Air conditioning in all bedrooms, 2 tvs, 2 bathrooms, large balcony with very clean bbq and well at stocked with kitchen appliances and utensils. We will be back!

The adams family!

Amazing, amazing, amazing

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in many holiday houses, this place is the leader of the pack. The house is superbly presented, spacious, close to everything (especially the beaches and the pool) and allowed us one of the most relaxing and enjoyable holidays in a very long time.

Highly, highly recommended (read wouldn't stay anywhere else in Shellharbour)!

Dream Catcher Beach House review

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the Dream Catcher Beach House could almost not be faulted.

We had great customer service from the property manager with the lead up to our stay.

On arrival gaining access to the property was easy and we found the house in excellent condition.

We had issues getting the BBQ working and ended up cooking on 1 burner only, which was disappointing.

We found the outdoor spa tricky to get warmed up and the bins hadn't been emptied in some time before our stay.

Regardless of the above negative points, the property manager was attentive tried to address each issue when we raised them.

The property on the whole was great and we would consider staying again.

Lovely House

  • 4 of 5

Dream Catcher is stylish, spacious, well appointed (except for plastic wine glasses) and light filled. The large security garage was perfect for our bikes and the large balcony with water views was great for al fresco dining. The house is close to the beach and bike paths, but occasionally noisy, as it was on the route to the new marina development under construction.

We had an issue with the toilets which took some time to fix, notwithstanding the best efforts of the owner, but John generously gave us a free night to compensate for the inconvenience (in addition to the early check-in).

Overall, the property is great value and comfortable place to relax and unwind.
