Great getaway!

5 of 5
We stayed 3 nights. Very comfortable and well provisioned accommodation for two couples and two kids. The location was peaceful and quiet. We made good use of both the indoor and outdoor dining areas, as the weather was warm to hot. The air conditioners quickly cooled down the cottage when we returned from a fun day at Healesville Sanctuary. We also spent an afternoon exploring sites along the river and took a dip in one of the waterholes. The bath in the upstairs ensuite provided a relaxing end to the day.

Great Location

5 of 5
We have stayed at the house a number of times now and always impressed with the amount of space and very short walk to shops, cafes and beach. Excellent beach house, perfect for relaxing holiday.
