Amazing golf course views in a quiet cul-de-sac

 Good location for mountain bike riding. Family friendly with excellent collection of toys, a high chair and a cot. A verandah with lounge room doors fully opening to verandah and golf course views from verandah. Nice surprise of black-out blinds in bedrooms as we had changed a couple time zones. Well equipped kitchen and herbs in the garden! Wifi internet was handy and plenty of DVD's and board games kept the kids busy when we weren't out exploring. Excellent water pressure, wow! A lovely stay. 

Spacious relaxing beach house

 We loved the large balcony! And so quick and easy to the shops, estuary and beach, perfect for families! Lovely

5 Bdrm Beachfront Family Escape

 Incredible location that is not much more than a few metres from the sandy beach, where we swam, and launched the boat and kayaks. Very enjoyable surroundings, with eye-candy views across the bay from the living room, kitchen and deck. Spacious living area and lots of options for sleeping arrangements making it ideal for more than one family and friends. We will be back again next year! 

Mountain Bikers Retreat, Self Catering, Redwoods

 Really enjoyed our stay at the house 

Spacious relaxing beach house

 Deck was great for evening meals. Living area large enough for several groups to converse separately. Kayaking up the creek was special
