Perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our young kids and some friends with their young kids. The house was plenty big enough for us all. We sat out on the back deck and it was so relaxing overlooking St Georges Basin. The water was crystal clear and its a short walk down the steps to the basin. Kids swam all day, the water was so clear and the kids could walk out about 500m and the water remained only waste deep. The canoe is heaps of fun. We made good use of it. The house has everything you could ask for. Possums came up to the back deck on one night and we saw a kookaburra who kept coming back. We loved our stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway!

A South Coast gem

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in this house a few times now and absolutely love it. It's in the perfect location, private but with instant access to the water. We always eat breakfast on the deck, overlooking the water and often there are kangaroos lazing in the backyard and native birds eating seed off the deck. We always use the free canoe in summer, and do all the usual water activities like fishing and swimming. My most recent trip was in April and it was a bit too cold to swim but we still enjoyed walks along the many nearby beaches, went to the local markets, had barbeques and got cosy toasting marshmallows in front of the fire. I've noticed that when the weather is terrible and water is choppy around Huskisson/Vincentia, it's always calm in St. George's Basin which is a bonus.

I've stayed here a few times now and it's always fantastic. The location is perfect, literally right on the water so it feels like having a giant private pool. When I've come in summer we always use the free canoe and spend loads of time in the water. It was a bit colder on my most recent visit so we did lots of beach walks instead, checked out the local markets and had barbeques at home. My favourite time is always breakfast on the balcony overlooking the water. There's often kangaroos chilling out in the backyard. Often when the weather in nearby Huskisson/Vincentia is unpleasant, the weather and water in St George's Basin is nice and calm which is a bonus.
