Amazing beach house

5 of 5
This house has everything you need located just metres from the beach. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Amaroo and the hosts were great to deal with.

As good as it gets

5 of 5
A fabulous cottage, perfect blend of old made new. The decor, the facilities and the furnishings are top quality, it is a very bountiful house, which shares the space with an extraordinary Moreton Bay Fig tree that frames the view from the verandah and provides beautiful shade in the day and the roost for the magpies and the dawn and twilight kookaburras. We stayed for 10 nights, and it was a joy to be in that space. We walked the paddocks and the roads, we rode our bikes , we swam in the river and we hung out. It was perfect.
