This was our family's fourth visit to Danesbank and we love it more and more every visit. Danesbank is so beautiful and peaceful and everything is so perfectly organised that life immediately shifts to a gentler pace. A cup of tea on the front veranda looking out at the trees and paddocks in the late afternoon sun is the image that I am holding onto until the next time!

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We'd been down to Mollymook and Milton a couple of times in the past but this year wanted to spend more than a couple of nights to celebrate a special birthday and unwind after a busy year. What a gem Danesbank is! Utterly private, perfectly comfortable - so much so that we barely left. So many little touches, from the bottle of bubbles in the fridge to the top quality linen, oodles of reading material, full video library for quiet nights in... and a great kitchen when we didn't feel like eating out. Highly recommended and we'll be back.

Thoroughly enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

Now know the type of place I would want to live in if we could move to the country. There is not one thing that disappointed. The quality of the beds, linen, kitchen ware, the aspect, the gardens, the verandah - we had a bbq each night - our walks, the Country Style magazines in abundance! The history of the cottage and closeness to town - yet allowing us to be miles away - added to our stay. The accommodation also worked well because we were close to my mother but not in her space. She enjoyed Christmas day with us - breakfast on the verandah, first course under the oak tree and dinner inside. I would love to return

Wonderful home beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Danesbank. Beautiful quiet surrounding, having breakfast on the verandah every morning - relaxing after breakfast as our little one explored the garden. We were not too far from anything - we enjoyed going to the beach each day and popping to one of the local coffee shops.

The owners went out of there way to make sure we were very comfortable and new all we needed to know about their home. We stayed over the easter holidays and we would highly recommend. We will be going back very happy.
