Fantastic property!

5 of 5
We recently stayed at this property with a group of friends (total of 6 adults plus kids) and it was a fantastic stay! My hubby and I plus our new baby stayed in the seperate granny flat which was great as it gave us privacy and our own bathroom/lounge area. And there were two other families and their 5 kids in the main house. There were plenty of hang out areas inside and outside with ample seating. The kids loved exploring the garden and around the house- hide and seek kept them occupied for hours! We fired up the BBQ and enjoyed the sunroom for afternoon drinks. The street was quiet and location was perfect and close to the beaches and Reccy. We are already planning our next stay!

Pure bliss - a must-stay!

5 of 5
A group of 7 of us stayed at the Valley of the Mists for my partners 30th birthday. It could not have been more perfect - from the picturesque surroundings to the perfectly manicured venue inside and out, the stay was definitely one to remember. The best thing is that you have everything you could possibly need right there - Foxtel, Netflix, big beautiful pool, space, coffee machine... you name it. I would recommend to my friends and would love to come back one day. Must also add special mention to Dan for being a very accommodating host.
