Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful beach house We have stayed here numerous times, its is very homely and exactly what you want a getaway to be. Every time we stay here if we have visitors they are blown away by the location, how many rooms it has and all the little surprises you have when walking around the home to the front entrance walking on a pond, the beautiful art, to the notes that Shellie leaves around the house. The beds are super comfy and it is in such a beautiful location, it really makes you appreciate life and what it has to offer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Location We both loved just about everything at Shellies. Listening to the ocean and watching the sunrise from the bedroom was awesome. The quirky nature of the place was very appealing and Sawtell is a lovely spot. The only downside was the lack of a perimeter fence which prevented us enjoying the Buddha Bar and back yard with our beach-crazed dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tropical beachside paradise I stayed in the Big House with my daughter and two grandchildren and we had such a great time. The house was charming with all the comforts we could have wanted. Wish we had longer! The direct and private access to the beach was great and the house has the capacity to accommodate the entire family when we come back again, which we will! The owners were friendly and the house itself was decorated in a beautiful Balinese style that made us feel like we could have been over in south-east Asia! Quiet location as well and a short walk to lovely Sawtell village and 10 minutes out of Coffs and all it has to offer for a great stay.
