AWESOME

5 of 5
The “ PERFECT” little home away from home- had absolutely everything we could possibly need, from the hair straightener and hand cream to the pet bed and outdoor area we hardly needed to leave .. having older kids based at UOW it was lovely for them to spend some quality time with us here as a family and still maintain their independence ... a very short walk to the beach and great walking track we will definitely be coming back. Great hosts in Iouri and Hayley who were very welcoming to anything we may need .

Amazing Cottage on a beautiful property

5 of 5
Can't recommend this property more highly, we loved every minute of our stay, the views from the bathtub and from the glass panel in the lounge room are amazing, the perfect place for a relaxing weekend away, plenty of wild life, from wombats and a little fox running around in the mornings, to rabbits and cows. Highly recommend.
