Fantastic holiday house!

5 of 5
Wow what an awesome Birthday week at this beautiful holiday destination! We loved the house and the view was sensational. The island is great for 4WD enthusiasts and the tracks are not too difficult so cater for all levels of driving capability. The stairs to the beach would be a little challenging for some but we hired a buggy from Tangalooma for a day ($125.00 a day though)when we met people from the passenger ferry with luggage as we could get closer than with the 4WD. We recommend that you take all your food and drink and just relax on the verandah or explore the island by 4WD as the resort at Tangalooma is a bit overrated. Owners of the Point were great to deal with and we would not hesitate to go there again. Thanks Marie and Mark for sharing this gem of a destination with us!

Fantastic family house!

We have just returned from a week at this amazing house. It had everything we needed for a comfortable family holiday. Great location for exploring the Island and visiting Tangalooma Resort. Don’t think we will ever forget the incredible view from the balcony.
