    Loved the location, was great and wonderful to be able to bring my dog but couldnt get to the beach easily for walks. The place was comfortable but had a horrible chemical smell I think due to the floors being stained and we had no hot water, I would have mentioned it on the day but decided to move on due to the smell. Loved the town

    Owner/manager responds:

    When the creek runs in front of the property, which it sometimes does, dependent on rainfall and tides, you have to walk to the mouth to get to the other side or take the kayaks over. Sorry you did not phone about the hot water. When cleaning after you left I noticed it was only luke warm - the previous guests had turned it off - it probably got too hot as they were using the fire which has a wet back. Sorry you smelled a chemical smell - we stained the floor a couple of month ago.

    Very cold in winter & not Heated upon arrival- took us a long time to get warm and comfortable.... No beach access as pictures would suggest, as there is a river between house and beach. Was grateful to be welcomed with our 2 dogs though & might be nicer in summer

    There is a 2400W heater which just needs turning on, plenty of dry firewood and electric blankets. As this is a holiday house and we do not live there, we are not available to turn on the heating. The creek sometimes flows in front of the property but the mouth of the creek is further away down the beach. Mother Nature we cannot control.

  • Oceanside is a lovely getaway from it all kind of Bach

    Oceanside is a lovely getaway from it all kind of Bach. The weather wasn't too great but we were warm and cosy inside with the wood/coal fire burning. A good book is all you need.

  • Great cottage, so close to the sea and awesome in a storm

    Great cottage, so close to the sea and awesome in a storm. Loved the fire to warm the place up and very comfortable lazy-boy chairs for an afternoon session with a book!
