Family friendly accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 5 nights away at the lovely Sandilands cottage. We travelled with 4 children under 3 and found the house perfect for our needs. The older two children had an absolute ball playing with all the indoor toys and spent large amounts of their day playing on the trampoline while us adults enjoyed a wine on the beautiful deck. The houses location is a short walk (maybe 10-15 mins) to the beach and shops. Charmaine and Gavin were lovely hosts and we hope to stay again. Thank you!

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing property. We stayed over the Christmas break with our family, fitting 10 people comfortably with a large lounge area and large kitchen area perfect for meals and family time. Charmaine and Gavin have thought of everything you could need for your stay. The location is perfect with a short walk to the beach and the shops. The Sandilands Cottage is a wonderful stay for families.

A Great Family/ Large Group Accommodation

  • 4 of 5

This is an amazing place for a large group with ample space for a memorable getaway. The location is really strategic too, providing lots of possible activities to do during the day - being near to the beach, the Peninsula Hot Springs, markets, etc. The living area is sized really well to cater for big groups to be in one area for a meaningful bonding and memory building time. We will definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

An amazing stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to snag the Sandilands cottage for the Easter break. We were travelling with two families (8 ppl all up - 4 adults and 4 kids under 5). The property couldn't be more fit for purpose, the layout of the property was fantastic, outdoor and indoor play equipment for the kids amazing, the early check in and late checkout a treat, not to mention little gifts that were left for us to make our stay that much more enjoyable.

I wouldn't hesitate recommending this property to the fussiest of travellers! You can have every confidence that in booking this property your stay will be just as you'd expected...relaxing and hassle free.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight adults and three children spent Christmas week at Sandilands. It was lovely to get away from the usual hustle and bustle of the season to a much needed place of quiet and refreshing rest!

Sandilands is truly a comfortable, clean,cosy and well equipped cottage. Much to our surprise and delight we were welcomed by a tastefully decorated Christmas tree. Thank you so much Charmaine for doing that for us! We put the kids' presents under the tree and it was sheer fun watching them open their gifts on Christmas morning. The box of goodies and wine was an added bonus. Thank you!

Although we went to the beach on the warmer days, we spent a lot of time staying at Sandilands playing board games, video games, watching movies and eating food cooked on the BBQ. We thoroughly enjoyed our down time, the kids loved it and so did our little dog.

We were also very grateful for the swift refund of our bond! Thank you Charmaine and your family for opening your home to us.
