We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage . So close to the beach and the restaurant and cafe down the road.Super comfortable beds with lovely linen. The owner left some kitchen supplies which was greatly appreciated. Unfortunately dogs were not allowed on the beach but there were quite a few places to take our old dog for walks.

Owner's Response: Please note that dogs are allowed on the beach, in fact off leash, to approximately two thirds of Pearl Beach. Restrictions apply only to the swimming area. To view the regulation and map to confirm this, please refer to the Gosford Council website: The site contains a map which shows clearly the large area of the beach where dogs can run off-leash. Pearl Beach is a dog friendly community.

Excellent home

  • 5 of 5

A lovely place to stay for a week or so. Short walk to a beautiful beach, and an even shorter walk to the bush tracks behind Pearl Beach and to Patonga. A well equipped kitchen if you don't feel like eating at the lovely cafe down the road.

Really appreciated the thoughtful touches such as fresh milk, coffee and quite a few emergency supplies, just in case you'd forgotten to arrive with them. Thank you Amanda.

Perfect first holiday with our new puppy

  • 5 of 5

Banksia Cottage was a perfect holiday rental for our family of 4 and new puppy. It was exactly as described, and once there saw how well thought out it had been set up for the comforts of a family holiday without being too fancy that you worried about puppy or kids causing havoc or staining something. The kids felt right at home straight away with the simple kids room - then they didn't want to leave. The kitchen had well stocked cupboards and drawers with kitchen essentials for a self catered holiday. It was also a real luxury having all linen and towels provided. Beds were super comfy and everyone slept well. Stunning Pearl Beach was an easy 5 min flat walk at kids pace and popped you right out at the best part of the beach. Outdoor shower in lovely garden was fun after lots of sand play. Also coffee and menu at local cafe is city quality with a stack of SMH's on Sat. This property and location really did have the whole easy holiday package with our new puppy. I would definitely stay at this property again. Thanks for a great mini break Amanda and being so responsive!

Perfect set up for a family of 4 and a set of grandparents. Pearl beach is right there and stunning as usual and the house was very comfortable and ticked boxes for us all. Thanks.
