Wonderful Lay Back Weekend for the Girls

  • 5 of 5

Hen's weekend for 8 women who just wanted to take it easy and catch up. This was the perfect location. We were all comfortable and relaxed. The best was the entertainment by Big Boy the 8 month old koala and his carer Julie, purely joyful.

The location was great, not far from the action but beautifully peaceful

Amazing property in an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Julie's property is awesome! We stay for a rainy weekend with some friends and it was great.

Since the first enquiry Julie answer really fast to all my doubts make the process of booking really easy.

The house is incredible, is split in to places, the main place is a modern and beautiful house, and the second place is set as a bar with pool table!

Thanks Julie for been so nice with as, an let us know our first koala's!

Excellent relaxing hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

I can't recommend this place highly enough. We booked both houses for a week over xmas and it exceeded our expectations. 5 minutes from the beach and with a pool also meant we were spoilt for choice. It was relaxing, quiet and peaceful, but you were only 10 minutes drive from Nelson Bay and the surrounding bays/activities if you needed them. The cottage was great and the hosts were friendly and very helpful. We would have no hesitation in going back and look forward to our next visit. Thanks Guy and Julie.

Lovely, clean, quiet and convenient to One Mile

  • 4 of 5

The property is situated behind the owner's property, in a serene and private setting. There is a verandah and outdoor eating area, which would be perfect if the weather had been better for us.

There is a good kitchen, fresh linens and the home is very clean. Couch is a little worn but not an issue.

Access to One Mile is a five minute walk, down a path and across the main road.

The owner is really friendly and happy to help out if needed, we brought our boat with us and she made sure we had parking and access to a hose.

We had a really lovely time!

A perfect, peaceful beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Surfside Dreaming for 4 nights with my wife, daughter and newborn baby boy. Julie was a fabulous host, and made us feel very welcome. The cottage was lovely, clean and spacious, and my daughter loved the pool. I struggled to get her out of it. The toughest decision of the day was whether to swim in the pool or at the beach across the road. Would happily recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing peaceful getaway !
