'CARINYA is without doubt a lovely home in a fantastic location. It also has a wonderful homely ambience. We have stayed in many holiday homes & apartments over the years & most of them have been in the premium end of the market. However what sets CARINYA apart is the fact that it truly is set up as a home with everything you'd expect to find in a 'well found' family home. Deb & Garry have made no compromises & we never felt like we had to 'make do' with certain deficiences or minimalist inventory. We've never encoutered its equal in Australia, Europe or North America. Congratulations and well done'-Brian & Lyn Nambucca Heads

'We really don't know what to say other than PERFECT there wasn't a single thing missing to help make our stay at CARINYA the best we've ever had in a holiday home'

A lovely way to end 12 months in Australia. A lovely home & lovely beach, thanks. The Rushgrove Family - Bath England

Thank you for a wonderful 5 weeks in this little bit of heaven by the bay. We loved your house & your eclectic & quirky decorations as did our interior designer son. Thank you for your attentiveness & concern.
Hazel and Roger Mitchell PS We'll miss the birds

I really don't know what to say other than Perfect....Thank you! We all had the greatest time, Steve, myself and the dogs. I have read all the guest comments and notes and so you have heard it all before and they are all right! You really do set yourselves apart from other holiday rentals and it's this point of difference that will stay strong in our minds and we cannot wait to come back sometime soon. There wasn't a single thing missing in your home for us from comfort to board games to ice in the freezer! Nicole and Steve

Deb & Garry have captured the essence of a true home away from home experience. The ecletic decor complimented each room, & showed the love & care Deb & Garry have put into the house. The views, beach & fantastic weather, coupled with the relaxing sound of gentle waves brushing the shore each night, have made our stay one in which we find hard to leave. 3 cheers to you & we'll be back.

We have just had the best 5 days at Carinya. With 2 small children, we can't thank you enough for the supply of EVERYTHING we needed for our 3 year old & 8th month old. From the travel cot, hi-chair all the gorgeous linen & baby actvity toys all of which were in immaculate condition. To the totem tennis, sand play equip. boggie boards, for our little boy & the golf clubs/buggies which my husband & his dad enjoyed. This does not include the beautiful house, with such an interesting & warm ambience, with everything that we could possibly wish for to help make our stay one of the best we have ever experienced. Oh & not to mention the beautiful views & magic position, the unbelievable birdlife that inhabited the front garden every morning & afternoon, I could go on forever. We cannot wait to come back again soon, none of us want to leave. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to share your little piece of paradise. Sarah,Shane,Matt & Lilly - Canberra & Grandparents - Christchurch NZ

Thank you so much for letting us share a little while at your fantastic Beach House. What a wonderful location! Everything met our requirements 100% including the children's toys and especially the reading books. All the generations enjoyed every minute and we are all so sad to leave.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great stay! We really enjoyed our stay at Carinya, and would definately recommend it for a group of friends. Our group of 10, were comfortable and it had pretty much everything we needed. The back deck is perfect to hang out on, eat, watch the water, and just steps to the beach - it's the perfect beachfront spot. With a house only on one side, the noise levels were fine, and the privacy is pretty good. Although we got to have a great chat with a few locals walking their dogs on the beach. It's an easy drive to the local shops, and we also would highly recommend Mel, at Jervis Bay Stand Up Paddleboards - best activity we did on the weekend. Deb, the owner, was super helpful on the lead up, and left great information there for us. Thanks for all your help Deb!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No words.... We were married on the reserve backing onto this house on February 1st and had our reception on the amazing deck with the most spectacular views of callala bay. Deb and Gary were so accommodating with any requests/questions we had in the lead up to the weekend. Also thankyou for our card and gift. Completely unnecessary, you had already done so much. For those considering hiring this property, do yourself a favour and book immediately. You will not regret it. :) We will definitely be back. Kristin and José.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soooo Good We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Carinya. As a party of 8 (2 elderly ladies, 2 teenagers, 2 small dogs, my husband and me) we had the capacity for personal space, while still being together as family. Deb has generously provided virtually everything you would need to enjoy the property and its environs. The local shopping centre, including an IGA, has most things including friendly helpful staff, thus avoiding the necessity to drive to Nowra.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mid week break and family weekend. My elderly parents and I and my 2 pooches had an amazing time at Carinya recently. The house was perfect for our needs particularly since my parents are not terribly mobile these days. They thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the activities on the bay. My dogs and I enjoy long walks on the beach. They go home and literally sleep for a week they are so exhausted!  Two weeks later I was lucky enough to return to Carinya with my husband and 3 children plus 2 partners and of course our dogs. They all loved the weekend despite the weather being less than kind. The new bathroom was a huge hit.  Once again Deb was the most wonderful caring host going out of her way to help make our stay as comfortable as possible. We will definitely be returning to this beautiful place.
