Overview

About the property

PLEASE NOTE - PROPERTY NOT SUITABLE FOR SCHOOL LEAVERS/HENS/BUCKS NIGHTS/LARGE EVENTS/WEDDINGS/BIRTHDAY PARTIES - this is a family property with permanent neighbours. Not for groups under 30 years of age. Maximum number of adults - 7

Kurreki is a low allergen environment - Strictly NO PETS

Under 4 hours north of Sydney and less than 2 hours from Newcastle is the beautiful, unspoilt village of Seal Rocks. Recently completed, KURREKI, is a modern interpretation of beach house architecture by Bourne + Blue Architecture. Sleeping up to 7 adults in comfort, KURREKI, is ideal for families or a group of friends to experience the surfing paradise of Seal Rocks and Treachery.

Sleeping accomodation at KURREKI is made up of two double bedrooms with queen size beds and a large bunkroom with three bunks. The living/dining area, bedrooms and and bathing area all open to a private internal deck and garden. All bedrooms have wall mounted fans and mosquito nets so you can enjoy the experience of luxury camping, lying in bed and looking out at the stars. Your conscience will be clear as the house is solar powered, only rainwater is used and sewage is treated onsite with a wet composting worm farm.

Spend your days hanging out on the hammock deck with a good book or get active and experience all that Seal Rocks has to offer. Surf the point break at No.1 Beach with the dolphins, go snorkelling off Boat Beach or take some time to go fishing. The nearby beaches face different directions, so offshore surfing conditions can be found year round. In the cooler months spend your time whale watching from the historic Seal Rocks Lighthouse or taking one of the many bush walks in the area. Or you could spend your days curled up in front of the fire reading, talking and watching all those movies you've been wanting to see.

Perfect for 2 families

  • 5 of 5

Had a great weekend at Kurreki with another family - 5 adults and 5 kids. Plenty of room for all and suprisingly warm in the late Autumn evenings. Very well equipped with everything we needed. We have many friends who want to come and stay now after seeing our photos.

Love Kurreki

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Kurreki in November and then again in June. It was clean and prepared for our arrival on both occasions. The owners are really easy to communicate with and answered all our questions promptly. The house is very comfortable especially the beds and everything is provided that we needed. We love the courtyard. We will be back ......again.

Kurreki is a property with potential

  • 3 of 5

Kurreki is a well-designed, uniquely-laid-out space that is ideal for a large (10) family gathering/holiday. The beach is an easy stroll away and the village of Seal Rocks is perfectly charming.

The house is in need of some serious TLC and detailed cleaning, however. And the two, closely-adjoining houses are likewise set up for holiday letting, which means you may experience late-night parties close to your pillow space, as we did. Makes for grumpy kids (and their parents) the next morning.

Would we recommend it? Yes. But I would speak to the agent and ensure that the house is properly cleaned (particularly the wet areas) and attention to broken cooking range dials and similar annoyances like blown light-bulbs and sticky roll-a-doors are replaced/fixed before you pay the hefty tag that is required. Fair is fair in both directions, I say. “Unbroken” money requires unbroken goods/services. Reciprocity.

Owner's Response: It's unfortunate that you didn't enjoy your stay at Kurreki in beautiful Seal Rocks. The driving rain and wind probably didn't allow you to fully enjoy the house or Seal Rocks but these things are out of our control. The weather conditions would have allowed you to make the most of the fireplace and the supplied fire wood though. The property on the same side as the children's bunk room is owner occupied so it is very unlikely that the neighbours kept any children awake particularly during an East Coast Low. Some people seem surprised that Seal Rocks is in the middle of a National Park. This obviously means no shopping centres / supermarkets or services and amenities that are taken for granted in urban areas. Every effort is made to repair or replace broken items in a timely manner but this also relies on guests reporting things they break or find broken. Unfortunately this doesn't often happen.

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at Seal Rocks - it is such a beautiful part of the world. Kurreki is a really innovative and fun beach house to stay at - we had the roller doors open most of the time and spent alot of time living on the deck. We loved the colours of the kids bedroom - the sizes of the spaces are just perfect. Loved the outdoor shower and even though it was close to the neighbours it felt extremely private.

We do agree with the previous review in that there are parts that are a bit worn. But just replacing the FC around the vanity and the BBQ area with something that

doesn't stain as much (like granite or stone) would fix that. The knives were noticeably very sharp!!

We loved that we are able to stay in such a cool and experimentally designed house - we will definitely recommend it to all our friends!

Relaxed beach-style living

  • 4 of 5

We had two families staying here (four adults, four children) and had a great week in the sun. We were lucky with the weather and ate most meals outside, which was nice. The house is about a 10 minute walk to the nearest beach and a short drive to a few others - all of which are spectacular. The house is well laid out and very cool, but is starting to get a bit worn.

We loved the fact that all of the rooms opened up to the elements with the big roller doors, but soon realised that meant a lot of bugs and mosquitoes in the bedroom, so we ended up keeping rooms closed up. While there are mosquito nets and we'd brought plenty of spray, they don't cover all of the bunk beds and they're a bit tricky to sleep under. Here's a summary of the best and worst bits.

Positives - lots of outdoor living, hammocks, pillows and cushions in main room to lie around on, lying on the deck and looking at the stars, space near front door for all of your beach stuff and all the towel racks.

Negatives - close neighbours - (photos look like it is quite isolated - unfortunately one of them had a crying child we could hear most days/nights), small fridge for a house that sleeps up to 10 people, pages of rules to adhere to, blunt knives and only plastic wine glasses.

Owner's Response: Everyone wants a bit of paradise (Seal Rocks) during the Christmas/January holidays, unfortunately it does have to be shared! Being in the middle of a National Park means all of nature is experienced, the good and the not so good. There are a few properties newer at Seal Rocks although at that time of year they do ask about twice the rent. As Kurreki is a rental property it is required to have terms and conditions to be listed on Stayz. This is the same as any other rental property in the area. There are two knife sharpening tools provided at Kurreki, if the knives are not quite as sharp as you would like and the plastic wine glasses are provided for safety, as we decided all the glass sets that have been broken and either left in the dishwasher or in places where children may find them was a bit too dangerous for the next guests and our cleaner. There are unbreakable glasses provided (although not wine glass shaped) from which wine can be drunk.
