Great family home

We had a great time at Beachside Haven. It had everything required for a family and the kids loved having the 2 TVs with Foxtel on each as well as the free Wifi. Watching the whales off the front balcony was a highlight as was the lovely little kid friendly beach a couple of hundred metres away.

The perfect getaway house

We stayed up here for a long weekend and the bedroom configuration worked perfectly for our group. There was plenty of space inside and out for us all to chill out and plenty of windows upstairs to enjoy the view and let the cool breeze through the house (there is also great air con). The beach is only a short stroll away and bush walking tracks are even closer. We hope to be back next year.

Great house!

We enjoyed staying at Beachside Haven! It is centred to our activities: it's within minutes drive to Sand Boarding, Camel ride, Toboggan Hill Park, Church, walking to beach and everyone enjoyed back at Beachside Haven as well because it has Wifi, Foxtel, toys for little ones .... Love it! Would love to stay there again next holiday! Thanks Beige! Linh & family :)

Boat Harbour Beauty

  • 4 of 5

A great property for a large family or two families of 4. The separate living areas means that it's possible for everyone to have their independence but still hang out together. The location was great, only a short walk to a beautiful family friendly beach.

Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we could ask for. Great deck to enjoy the sensational views. Short walk to Boat Harbour beach. Very short drive to One Mile Beach for surfing. Foxtel TV for entertainment. Air con for the really hot days. Great backyard for the boys to play in. Very child friendly. A bright, airy and lovely feel to the home. And the owner Amanda was a pleasure to deal with. We had a wonderful week thank you!
