Perfect family holiday home

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 4 families with children btw 1-8yrs old. The house was warm when we arrived on a chilly winter's day thanks to the heaters being put on for us - a nice touch! House has lovely backyard with fun cubby and swing and the kids particularly enjoyed all the toys, games and dvds provided. Big well appointed kitchen and huge table upstairs made meals easy. Bedrooms were all comfortable and layout great to able to zone off kids areas. Could not be happier with this property and we anticipate returning again next year. A quick drive to Rye shops. Playground and front beach makes things easy too. Thank you for a wonderful stay :)

What a great property! Stayed over the long weekend in June with 15 people. A combination of kids and adults. The house has a great layout with basically a self contained house on each level. Everything was clean and had plenty of plates, cups and cutlery. The only thing that would make it better would be a second fridge. There isn't one in the kitchen downstairs. For a big group I'd suggest bringing a couple of esky's.

Can't wait until next year, we'll be back!

Great House to Chill Out

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a great time here over the weekend and it was the perfect place for a mix of singles and couples. It was very comfortable and the deck was amazing - I wish we'd been in Summer so we could have enjoyed it more! Liz was also a pleasure to deal with and made everything very easy.
