Odyssey is a great beach house.

  • 5 of 5

We loved Odyssey and Emerald Beach. Odyssey is the perfect beach house. It has large decks, outdoor warm shower and slat windows for breeze. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable but tastefully renovated with colourful art work and well-equipped kitchen. Our labrador enjoyed the garden and her daily walk and swim at the beach. We all enjoyed the walks around the headland and along the beach and the surfing lessons with the Solitary Islands Surf School. Emerald Beach has a wide footpath for bikes and skateboards and a couple of coffee venues and dinner

options. The dolphins in surf were a treat early in the morning and the kangaroos are everywhere. Odyssey is a great beach house and Emerald Beach is a terrific location.

Perfect Place to Recharge

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Odyssey House. It had everything we needed for a relaxing few days. The house was clean and comfortable. It had a great yard for our dog and the off leash dog beach was a short walk away.The shed was enjoyed by all especially the teenagers. Vicki was very friendly and helpful throughout the whole

process. Will be back. Emerald beach is a lovely hidden treasure.

Perfect quiet beach retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for 2 families and being able to take our dog along as well was brilliant! The house is in a great spot, easy walk to the beaches and the township which has a few great restaurants. The 'shed' made for great entertainment as well.

Fantastic Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

Odyssey was the perfect beach holiday home. Great big yard for the kids and our furry friend to run around and play, while we relaxed with a cuppa or drink out on the balcony. The kitchen was great, everything you needed was there. Bedrooms were big and comfortable. Beautiful spacious clean bathrooms. Upon opening 'The Shed' we found a lovely picnic basket with everything needed for a picnic up at the lookout, that I loved, taking a cuppa and sitting on the blanket while watching Hubby fish while the kids searched for seashells. We loved how close we were to the beach, and great local restaurants and the general store. We will defiantly be back and would love to make Odyssey a yearly holiday spot. Thank you Vicki for such a warm and relaxing home to holiday in.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We and our couple of small pooches couldn't have asked for a better mini holiday on arrival we fell in love with Vicki's home away from home that being Odyssey Beach House. A bottle of champagne placed on the table with a lovely note welcoming us to her beautifully appointed home. Being an avid cook I checked all the utensils and all other cooking requirement and believe me I couldn't find anything I would need that wasn't provided. Even a barbecue that we put to good use on a breezy covered verandah a welcome afternoon retreat after the warm days we had up there. There is air conditioning but we prefer the outdoors rather indoors.

The beds were very comfortable suffice to say we slept like logs particularly after playing darts, ping pong and a game I have not seen before very enjoyable but I will leave that for now so it doesn't spoil the surprise. There is also a great selection of Nintendo Wii games, cards and other popular board games such as scrabble. I have to mention how the friendly the locals were towards us especially the next door neighbours who have dogs of their own.

The TV and the good variety of DVDs with surround sound system was great, not that we watched too much TV as there were many other things to do, restaurants, walks along the beautiful dog friendly Emerald Beach and surrounding areas.

The morning we left we walked up to the headland and followed the path back to the beach. On the path were about ten kangaroos some with joeys to our surprise they all started hopping toward the beach. On reaching the beach we could see them hop around the rocks and into surf (not crashing waves but surf by anyone's interpretation) something I have never seen before, seeing this I had to take some snaps. I have visited every state in Australia and many areas with the various states and never experienced this kind of behaviour by kangaroos. So if like us you decide to rent Vicki's Odyssey Beach House and I strongly suggest that you do, you will undoubtedly enjoy every moment as we did the feedback book in the living room is a testament to this.

Thank you Vicki we will definitely be back!
