Big Yucca Beach House

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Our cozy beach house is great for family groups or for 3-4 couples - even great for a writers' retreat or a sabbatical!

Huge backyard with large covered BBQ area.

We don't mind pets (but not inside house).

The single storey house includes a modern bathroom with walk-in shower and toilet; a second bathroom with shower, toilet and laundry facilities; new kitchen with dishwasher and coffee maker; and there is a split system heater/cooler aircon in the living room.

The sleep-out (optional extra) is great for teenagers, or use as 2nd living area - it has a double bunk with single on top. To book the sleep-out you need to book for 11 people - family groups preferred.

House sleeps 8.

Bedroom 1 has a Queen bed and 2 singles (1 a king single; the other on a trundle)

Bedroom 2 has a Queen bed

Bedroom 3 has a Double bed

New electric blankets have been fitted to the queen and double beds.

Doonas and pillows are provided but you will need to byo bed linen, towels and bathmats.

A portacot is also kept in the house for families with babies.

We offer a complimentary late check-out of 3pm if no same day arrivals.

Disability access: The house has a small step at front door and another inside.

Please note there is a strict no party policy. There are many people living close by who live there permanently and so noise after 10pm weeknights and 11:30pm Fri and Sat is not really fair to them. Police will issue fines ($800) for disturbing the peace. Guests who break this rule may be asked to leave and may lose their bond and forgo the remaining days' accommodation fee as a consequence.

One night stays (with a $25 cleaning surcharge) are possible - please ask.

Long term stays in non-peak periods are possible, and rates for these will be discounted depending on length of stay.

Recent feedback from our guests included:

"Karen & Stephens place is beautiful! Really lovely set up & super close to everything. Would definitely stay there again & would recommend highly to anyone! Also plenty of room for backyard activities! Thanks heaps"

"House was fantastic. Thanks for the opportunity to experience it"

You can walk to everything!

We are just down the road from the safety beach, and about 1km from the famous surf beach.

The pub is just around the corner, and there are many restaurants, cafés and shops just a stroll away!

Excellent house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. Location was ideal, house was immaculate and very comfortable. Great backyard for the dog and well secured. Of course stays are never long enough.

No TV reception, but internet was available and of course plenty of DVD's if needed.

Host was was very friendly and helpful.

Excellent property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! The location was fantastic - we walked everywhere! It was very clean & very cosy. Wine & Easter Eggs left for us was such a special touch!

TV reception wasn't the best, but we knew that!

Big Yucca Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend and 10 of us stayed comfortably. The house was well presented with nice touches like wine and chocolates on arrival, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel provided. Easy walk to shops and the beach. Only complaint was from the cricket fans who had to go to a local bar to watch the cricket due to poor TV reception (although we were aware of this possibility)

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay Jean, and thank you for your feedback. We have addressed the TV problem and have raised the mast and changed the antenna which has resulted in great picture quality and access to all channels.

Excellent position for us.

  • 5 of 5

The house, although modest, was clean and easy to keep this way. It had old world charm, but modern renovations and good size yard made it a joy to be in.
