Absolute Beachfront, Stunning Views

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Opossum Bay Beach Cottage. The location was sensational and the vintage board games provided hours of family fun. The cottage was great value and we enjoyed the quirky layout.

Basic but does the job!

  • 2 of 5

Despite the property being listed as "Minimum 1 night," we were asked to pay a surcharge for staying only 1 night and to provide all our own linen. We were told the surcharge was to cover petrol costs for the owner to ensure everything was clean and presentable for our stay. However, when we arrived, the beds were still made up in the used linen of the previous guests. We were also asked to sweep, vacuum and mop the floors after our stay. Nevertheless, the property is on absolute beach front, and had everything we needed for our stay.

Owner's Response: We appreciate feedback, as it helps us improve our service, especially where there is a problem. The difficulty managing one night stays has been corrected. We are able to easily offer one night stays. The perception of re-used linen is poor, but was not the case. We now offer a cleaning fee, however we prefer our guests to choose whether they clean / tidy or hire a cleaner to do this. ( This service is often mandatory interstate), however we prefer to give a choice. And most importantly... as Rosie states ...absolute beachfront, and stunning views.

Absolute beachfront in a traditional shack

  • 4 of 5

This is a genuine shack. Small but located on a beautiful beach, with wonderful sunsets and in a lovely community. Not pretentious, just relaxing. Cast a line out from the beach or wander a few hundred metres to the jetty and who knows what you might catch. Access is very steep so not for those with difficulty in movement and check for BBQ availability. We absolutely loved it.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a truely enjoyable stay at the Beachside Cottage. Well set up for a very relaxing stay. Loved being able to step out of the cottage straight onto the beach. Loved the walks along the sand and up to the point. Good spot to also put the boat in from just around the corner. Will definitely be back again.
