The Verandah is a gorgeous original beach house set in a lush tropical garden providing a traveler with a haven of peace and tranquility only a few minutes walk from one of the few unspoilt, uncrowded and well preserved beaches in the region; perfect for swimming, surfing, sun bathing or just lazing about! There is even a good chance to spot a pod of Dolphins or the occasional whale.
RELAX & ENJOY THE WELL EQUIPPED HOUSE
The Verandah has has a lovely relaxed beach house feel but with all the modern amenities you would expect from a luxury retreat. It has been furnish by a couple who want to return a few times per year and not have to worry about anything; from the moment you step inside to the large open plan living and dinning room you will be amazed at how all your needs have been met; the kitchen has a state of the art oven and gas cook top and all modern appliances.
The French doors then open onto the wooden Verandah, where afternoons can be spent having a refreshing drink after a tiring day spent on the beach, which is a short stroll from the house, past the general store. Or lite the BBQ and cook up some fresh seafood which can be purchased straight of the boats at Brunswick Heads.
If the body needs to unwind then sink back into the enormous claw bath and let the bubbles relax and rejuvinate, so you can do it all again the next day.
The house has 4 bedrooms, 2 x queens, 1 x single and the kids room with bunk beds; there is also a porta cot if needed for babies. There is a day bed in the lounge room in case you have a visitor.
If it gets too hot or too cold whilst you are visiting then press the button on the reverse cycle airconditioning and all will be solved.

We had a wonderful time at The Verandah. The house would suit people whose idea of luxury is a verdant tropical garden, close proximity to excellent beaches, and a house with a spacious homey feeling. It is a short walk to South Golden Beach, which is just so beautiful, especially at dusk. Also only fifteen minutes walk along the beach to New Brighton, which has shady dunes and a good cafe. It was so quite during our two week stay in early December, which was a nice change from many holiday destinations. The neighbourhood is very family friendly. Like the other reviewers, we felt that the house felt more like a family home than a sterile holiday house. The beds were a bit hard for my liking, but that is the only negative and the positive aspects of the house and location more than made up for this (I grabbed a soft foamy from the kids room). The place is a real find and I will certainly return at the next opportunity. I might add that Ralph was terrific, really helpful and returned emails promptly.

We didnt get to stay at the verandah..but what did happen is we put in a booking and drove all the way to byron bay from north lakes in the hope to find accomodation as everyone was booked up. We had to come all the way home only to find that the landlord of the verandah had responded 12 hrs late australian time and we could have had accomodation after all if he had bothered to call our mobile or l.line. We were so upset it is ridiculous. Tell him although he is in thailand to get with the australian time zone and make the effort to call the customers direct!!!

Our reason for visiting the area was to attend a wedding on the Saturday, so we didn't get as much time as we would have liked to spend in the house or explore the area. But it is such a lovely location, and we certainly did walk down to the beach each day.Our 3yr old grandson was SO excited to sleep in the room with the bunks and doll house. And he loved the bath!Thanks again for the lovely house and being on hand to answer all our enquiries. We hope we can visit again another time, and stay much longer!

Big ups to Ralph McMillan for his help in putting this weekend-away together for us.
The Verandah exceeded all expectations and our dog loved being able to come with us on holidays.
