Fabulous Family Friendly Property

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property! We had 3 families stay at Bungayarra for a week and our only regret was that we didn't book for longer!!

The house is spacious and very child friendly. So many indoor and outdoor activities for everyone including a beautiful swimming pool.

Veronica and Richard were fantastic to deal with. Very friendly and helpful, as was the onsite caretaker. We brought our boat with us and there was plenty of space to park it.

We loved our stay and would highly recommend the property for a fabulous, relaxing holiday.

Great house for friends and families!!

  • 5 of 5

Terrific holiday house for friends and families. We had four families and there was plenty of space for everyone to be together or have time to themselves. Our days were spent in the pool or lounging in hammocks on the side veranda and evenings having drinks and dinner at the stunning wooden table in the courtyard surrounded by walls of ivy. Forster beaches a few minutes drive away or 15 minute drive down to Elizabeth, Blueys and Boomerang beaches. I'd love to go back in winter to enjoy the log fire. Great holiday, great house.

Fantastic Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect getaway for a group of friends or the whole family. Our group of 12 loved everything about the property including the beautiful design and landscape making for a quiet and relaxing retreat. Plenty of space with separate lounge areas and a games area for some fun. A visit to the local markets and boutique shops along with some local putt putt and bowling made for a great weekend had by all. Pity about the weather otherwise the pool would have been put to more use!! Wouldn't change a thing and definitely heading back.

short and sweet

Blinds : no blinds in most of the house ,making it very difficult to sleep.

Dryer: no dryer so if it rains and you’ve got a lot of kids with dirty cloths the shops arnt that far away (sad Face)?

Hairdryer : not even one in the master room the girls weren’t even asked to bring one (from sydney lol)

Cooking : the pots, pans need throwing out Straight UP ! we had to by new ones to use while we were there as the ones provided were very dirty and old .
