Sit back, relax have a cold beer or wine from the beer fridge & enjoy the views.

Don't worry about the kids - they'll be fine in this large fully fenced property, jumping on the safe trampoline, playing in the sandpit or kicking a ball around in the front yard. Your dog will be loving it too in the kennel with its auto-filling drinking bowl.

With 7 bedrooms - 5 double beds & 6 singles (mainly in bunks) + 2 portacots, this unique house is perfect for large groups, or multiple families. The house is set up as 2 stand-alone houses which are joined at each end - one with sound barrier double doors between the two lounges. Open them up to give flow through to one large room, or close them off to keep the noise down or gain a bit of privacy. Two kitchens, toilets, bathrooms, lounges etc means you can have a bit of space to yourself, while still enjoying the company of your mates & their kids.

This property is set up to make holidays easy. Especially with lots of kids. One of the lounges is set up with full sound-resistant insulation to virtually sound-proof off the area. The adults can stay up late watching the rugby, and the kids can be up at the crack of dawn - without either disturbing the quiet sleeping areas throughout the rest of the house.

Unlimited use lightning fast VDSL broadband wifi means you or the kids can go crazy on youtube or minecraft or whatever necessary if it happens to rain. BYO sky box - we've got a dish installed ready to go so you can watch the rugby or cricket on the 50" plasma.

A fisherman's dream setup, there's plenty of parking for the boat, washdown facilities handy, a large floodlit filleting table with barrels for transporting fish guts and a large wood-fired hot/cold fish smoker with wood supplied.

Enjoy outdoor dinning on the deck or by the pizza oven & BBQ with a few tunes from the outdoor sound system. Outdoor seating around a brazier.

    The house is located close to the estuary and well equipped for families or larger groups. It has spacious bedrooms, large dining tables, comfortable living areas where everyone feels homely and comfortable. The outside area is large and ideal for kids to play,with a well looked after trampoline and a swing. We also found toys & balls that the home owners have left out for our kids. We had a great time outside using the pizza oven and BBQ, also the kitchen is very well equipped. Great view!

  • Perfect location, the beach was basically behind our back yard

    Perfect location, the beach was basically behind our back yard. The backyard itself was huge, great space for a big crowd to have a bbq and few drinks. Very nice place overall to stay.

    We stayed here with another family and it was absolutely perfect! Plenty of space inside and out. The garden with trampoline and sandpit was great for the kids, and we made the most of the pizza oven most evenings. Couldn’t ask for much more out of a holiday house. Really close to the water and will definitely be staying again!

  • Absolutely beautiful property! Very spacious home with everything you need

    Absolutely beautiful property! Very spacious home with everything you need. The garden was perfect as we brought 4 dogs with us and they were able to safely run around as the place was fully fenced. Nice outdoor area for the family to hang around in with beautiful views of the beach! The beach was a short 5 minute walk which was perfect for a sunset stroll after dinner! We made great use of the pizza oven! Overall a great home and we would definitely return! Thanks Lyn!
