The location allows for easy access to beaches and the Harvey and Peel estuaries where you can enjoy a picnic, swimming, boating, jet skiing, fishing or crabbing.

Perfect country feel

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful- so spacious and comfortable, and had absolutely everything we needed. Lovely outside gardens with an outdoor cabana and seating area. Fully fenced yard perfect for dogs. Our two labradors had so much fun exploring the huge outdoor area, as well as playing with Bruce the Staffy from next door through the fence! There is a sheltered area right outside the master bedroom which is the perfect place for your dogs to sleep and still be near you.

Overall absolutely fantastic and could not fault if I tried. We will definitely be back!

Great property for kids!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time at Banksia Grove.

There was a vast array of activities for children including basketball hoop, arcade machine, expansive and well kept lawn for cricket and bocce, bikes and darts.

For the adults, there is a large bar area, several wooden tables and chairs, crabbing gear and lots of room to stretch out and enjoy.
