So relaxing!

5 of 5
This is a gem! Comfortable, clean, stylish with aircon and a lovely kitchen/living room. Everything is good quality and New. Outside deck is very private. The location is great and a stroll to the beach. We stayed here en route south from Brisbane. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Best of both worlds!

5 of 5
We stayed at Surf and Golf in January 2018. The house is new and elevated so as to get the breezes. The back deck looks out onto the golf course amongst the native bush with abundant bird life. We were even visited by a friendly bearded dragon one morning. Our group of family and friends including children and a teenager wanted for nothing as the house is very well appointed. It is only a short walk to beautiful Sawtell beach, ocean pool, river estuary with great swimming for children, and restaurants. Highly recommended.
