About the property

We offer a beautiful beachfront holiday house where you can sit back and enjoy the magnificent views of Coobowie Bay to the lights of Edithburgh and Wind Farm. There is no road between you and the beach, just step off the front verandah to the lawn leading onto the sand. Sleeping offers 3 bedrooms (1 queen, 1 queen, 2 sets of bunks), tastefully decorated and includes modern and quality features. The living area and Bed 1 and Bed 2 all have full width sliding doors to front deck with water views. Lay back in bed and have that first cup of tea staring at the ocean views and weather of the day. Grass lawns to front for kids to play.

The house comes with a brand new fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher with quality crockery and a Nespresso Coffee Machine.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Returning to Smooth Sailing is always a joy for us. The fur babies love the environment and we all enjoyed many walks along the beach. The house as always was well equipped, clean and just a great stay. Access froms rooms to the decking is a lovely feature and nothing beats a cup of coffee in bed overlooking Coobowie Bay. We have returned to Smooth Sailing several times and will again come back for another stay.

Superb R&R!

  • 5 of 5

We had the perfect stay at this lovely house with such great views. Fully equipped with everything you could want to eat in- but in our case we ate out at the local hotel for delicious meals almost every night. The time flew too fast- so we'll be back for more ASAP! Clean, modern, warm (air con works very well at 17!) very comfy bed, ample space, and we met such lovely friendly locals.The bonus was that we were allowed to bring our doglet who discovered a rabbit on the beach and instantly developed 'selective hearing'! He was in 7th heaven too!

PERFECT!!! Peaceful A++++ IN every way.

  • 5 of 5

Needed a quiet peaceful time away and certainly found the FANTASTIC place.

Arrived after dark to find a very clean beautiful holiday home. Thank you Julie and Guy for all the thought and effort in making this a so comfortable place with everything we could need! Bed and lounge so so comfy,great lovely kitchen, bathroom and also a laundry to use. Then to wake up next morning to see the beach in front of the bedroom was GREAT. Sliding doors from bedroom and lounge leading on to the deck a wonderful place with view of sea to chill out for breakie, So close to beach for walks.

Gardens well maintained Lovely smell from lavenders,violets and rosemary. Had really good meal at local pub and within walking distance.

Highly recommend Smooth Sailing for your getaway.

We found it ideal for a Winter Stress Releasing Holiday.

We Will Return. Jenny and John.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

Had a great five days property had everything you need and sooo clean. Kids loved the water right at the door they spent plenty of time on the kyaks getting close to the many pelicans. Rode the bikes in to Edithburgh along the "Walk the York Trail" well worth the ride most amazing trail along the cliff top with the ocean on one side... Took my elderly parents and they loved relaxing on the deck with the beautiful sea views also fantastic that we could take the family dog! We will be back thanks for a great family place to stay.
