Not a Winter House

  • 2 of 5

The house was great and the position absolutely perfect and it would be superb in the summer. We stayed in the middle of winter with Sydney experiencing beautiful sunny days and very cold mornings and evenings. We didn't enjoy any of this sunshine - the house is shaded nearly all of the day. This made the house very cold. Although there were adequate heaters this is no compensation for lack of sun. Never again at this time of the year.

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this place. It is very clean, quiet and the position on the waterfront is amazing as you can also use the paddle board and kayaks supplied. The host (Vanessa) was great and extremely easy to communicate with at all times.

We had a fantastic 4 night escape at Currawong Cottage, we felt so recharged after our stay we will be back!

It was perfect, you felt a thousand miles away from the hussle and bussle of Sydney. The house is ideal to just relax, and chill out.

The ground floor kitchen and living area just flowed out to the back yard and to the waters edge what more do you need. Sitting there watching the sun set you could have been anywhere in the world.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

As all my friends live in apartments, Currawong Cottage seemed like the perfect venue to have a dinner party, where we could all cook and enjoy each other's company as we created a mouth watering five course degustation menu. Each person was tasked with one course and it was the most enjoyable dinner party I have been to in a long time. The kitchen is superb. Well stocked with all the equipment we needed, large workbenches and a good sized oven. Because it is so big, all of the guests sat around the bench watching each person prepare their dishes. With a fantastic view overlooking the bay as we watched people take leisurely walks along the waterfront, it was perfectly relaxing. I would highly recommend this property. Its clean, well laid out, light and airy and has everything you need.
