Family Friendly Bach

 The location was fantastic for a family as the lake across the road was ideal for kids fishing , cycling around and kayaking. The beach was a short walk and the layout of the bach worked really well for young children. The all day sun was wonderful and a well situated dining table and big deck enhanced the experience. The flat fully fenced section was great for the kids and the dog. Lots of backyard cricket and ball games!

Gorgeous Cooks and Mercury Bay view beach house.

 Loved our stay, loved the home, loved the location. We had an amazing time and will be back! :) 

Fantastic Beach Front Bach

 It is a fantastic location. Yes it is an older bach, but it was very clean and tidy and we had a wonderful week. There was enough room for everyone (3 generations) and we had a great holiday together. 

Location location!! Beautiful Cooks Beach ....

 Nice & close to everything 

By The Lake - Perfect for Family and Friends

 Great place to stay, so close to everything, clean and tidy and easy to organise. Love being around the lake with kids and dog and property is fully fenced. If anything caravans could get a little hot during day but deck is there and we would definitely stay again. 

Relax & enjoy,close to beach,shops and boat ramp

 This was our third year that we have stayed at this property. Such a perfect location and the house is extremely well equipped. We will definitely be booking for next year. Thank you :-)
