We had an absolutely wonderful long weekend break here with our two children aged 7 and 4 and their grandparents. The house was spotless, beautifully presented and had absolutely everything you could need to stay forever, not just the weekend! Thanks to bouncy beds and powerful air con we were very comfortable indeed, and also treated wonderfully by the owners. Sandra lives close by and was always on hand if we needed anything, although was not at all intrusive. Little touches that made her an especially wonderful host were a homemade cake on arrival and a text to let us know the location of a koala on the reserve!
The location is very special. You can easily get to the more bustling areas such as Nelson Bay and many tourist attractions (a car will be a must). Sandra has put together a really informative folder full of suggestions and advice regarding the wider area and we had a brilliant day exploring various outlook points. A short drive from the house is Lemon Tree Passage where we had the most fantastic meal at 'The Poyer's', the setting was beautiful, the food delicious and it felt special without being too stuffy to relax with the children there.
Closer to home, a short walk from the house is a wonderful beach, perfect for safe swimming with children, and a reserve with plenty of boardwalks and some koalas. We were lucky enough to see two! There are also amenities such as a supermarket, bottle shop, takeaways and RSL within an easy walk so although a car will be needed to go further afield it is easy to enjoy a day or two free from driving if you wish.
We will be returning home to live in the UK shortly but if are in Australia again I wouldn't hesitate to return to this property and will happily recommend it to family and friends.
We thought this place was great. Auto garage. Three bedrooms, two with Queens. Upstairs carpet was in great condition. Air con lovely. Very comfy & large couch. Well appointed kitchen. Big bathrooms & showers with great water pressure!
200m walk to Dutchies Beach was perfect! 10 min drive to Fingal was also good.
A new oven, & fans in bedrooms, would be good additions but everything else was wonderful. We'll be back!
