Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We had Christmas at The Pondok with our extended family and had a fabulous stay. The house is well provisioned with everything you could need. The kids made great use of the beautiful yard and we loved having The Cave to play table tennis and pool, especially on a rainy day. The location is great, especially for beach access.

Perfect Beach House for the Whole Family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Pondock for 10 nights. It is in an awesome location, just a stroll to the shops and beach. The house has everything you would need, heaps of character and feels like your own home. The Cave was wonderful for the kids and gave us parents a lovely break from the children's noise and a few sleep ins. The kids loved the independence of playing ping pong, darts and pool in their own space. Great BBQ, fire pit and large garden that our golden retriever loved! Nothing to fault about this place and we hope to be back again next year. Thanks for the most relaxing holiday we've had in a LONG time!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Pondok. The house is tastefully decorated and has every mod con you require. When we arrived we found the beds freshly made, towels supplied and even basic food items in the pantry. It was as if the owners had just moved out for the week to let us stay. We've never struck this in a holiday rental before. We would thoroughly recommend The Pondok for a great relaxing break.

Pondock Has Everything !!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house with with every amenity you can imagine. No need to have sea view when this close ! Perfect for a family of 5 with a few mates. The Cave is brilliant and my 14 year old and her friend were in there, loved it and there independence as well as huge big screen and there very own fridge ! Scotts Head will now be the only place we holiday. Thank you to both owner and Stayz..... We are so sad to be back at work tomorrow !!!!!!! What a hols. We want it again next year. The beaches and lack of people are the greatest attraction. The best week off we've had in Australia. Thanks again !
