Fantastic property !

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed the Drift Away holiday home , as soon as we walked in we felt comfortable and relaxed !We enjoyed a BBQ and drinks on the deck whilst the kids loved the slide and hammock , the hard drive was also a hit as there was lots of movies for us as a family !

The photos don't do justice , the beds were super comfy and warm as nights were chilly .

The weather wasn't great for the beach some days we played some games that was there which was fun for the family !! This house is modern / beachy and we would love to come stay again , I would highly recommended the Drift Away to anyone . Thanks so much for letting us stay . (Also we enjoyed the wine and choccies that was left in the fridge ) .

A perfect getaway

Drift Away was comfortable and our family felt totally at ease staying there for the week. Plenty of fridge and freezer space and a wonderful outdoor space for the kids to play. We also loved the well stocked games cupboard!!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jess and Ryan for creating a fantastic home away from home. It is such a relaxing place with brilliant touches from the jetty pylons around the exterior to the driftwood and shell creations inside (love the construction of the king bed!) The beds are comfy, kitchen well equipped, the wood heater is superb and the natural gardens are perfect for this style of getaway home. We just loved it here and hope to be back soon!
