The property was extremely clean and so well equipped, everything had been thought of including kids play area with toys. Walking distance to the beach and general store. Unfortunately during our stay there was a TIGER SNAKE in the garden touching distance from the decking! The owner called a snake catcher but by the time he arrived it had gone, the owner never called us to check we were ok later that day or during anytime afterwards So if you have a dog or children be aware!
Hello Dawn, I'm so sorry you had this experience with the tiger snake in the garden on top of some reeds. It is the first time a snake has been seen on the property since I have owned it. It was unfortunate the snake had slithered away in the short time the snake catcher took to arrive however I spoke extensively with him afterwards and he said that he had a good chat to your family when he was there at the house. Basically he said that this season was bad for snakes, and he thought they may live in the neighbouring properties in vegetation and large woodpiles. He said that it is important to be able to see them, as they are everywhere. I am having the vegetation on the property cleared at ground level to facilitate seeing snakes if they are there. Thank you for letting me know and in my conversations with my husband I made sure to say to let me know if anything else was amiss, and to take extra care. My apologies for not re-contacting you after the snake catcher left as I thought everything was in hand. As always, it is really important to be vigilant in the country in Australia, wherever you go and I will make a specific note to guests in future regarding snakes. It is particularly important to supervise small children as a general rule from wandering into areas of the property behind sheds or around woodpiles.
Happy to come back the third time
Happy to be back to the cosy house in Sandy Point with family, friends and the dog!
Lovely and comfortable
We really enjoyed our stay, the house is well equipped and is comfortable for two families plus some guests and pets!
We enjoyed our stay, we had everything we could possible need. Great little spot
Perfect for a family beach holiday
Private and peaceful beach retreat for family or girls weekend. Well appointed house and ideal for foodie gatherings with wine and relaxation. Our dogs enjoyed the fenced garden and beach walking. Perhaps the cleaning could have been just a bit more stringent , not quite as sparkling as we are used to. If coming back this way we will look forward to another stay in the little yellow house at 26 Acacia.
The perfect house for a family holiday
We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in this beautiful house and were fascinated to read about its' construction history. The house is really like a home away from home with a fantastic selection of reading material, family movies and board games and the kitchen is equipped with everything you could need to cook a meal or even bake a cake. It was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated and the beds were very comfortable. To top it off, the beach was perfect for walking the dog and kite surfing. We will be sure to stay at this great house again.
