Comfortable and great value

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Sandy Cove. We like it when the kids have their own space downstairs and adults have their space upstairs. The bathrooms, bar-b-que area/room and balcony are dated and slightly untidy. There were a few minor issues but owners were responsive and attended to them in timely manners. The property is within walking distance to the beach, shops and Tomaree Head Track. The hike to the Tomaree summit can be difficult as it is mostly uphill, however the lookouts are breathtaking and worthwhile. The property is also close to other attractions like sand boarding, camel riding and riding 4wheel drive on sand dunes/beach etc... We had great fun and love the area as it has many things to offer.

Loved the entertainment area. Kitchen well stocked with utensils and appliances. Air conditioning appreciated in the living space. So close to the beach and shops. Great house to chill out in. Bathrooms a little old but very functional. comfy couches. Big dining table to entertain around. Great accommodation. Had a marvellous weekend.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house itself is an older property but they have done it up nice with the renovations. It felt very fresh and clean. The bbq and outdoor setting as well as an outdoor heater were handy. The fully fenced back yard was great for our two dogs to roam around in and there is an awesome dog beach just down the road in Nelson bay. Being within walking distance of the shops and the beach was fantastic! Overall a great property for large groups!
