'thank you very much for your wonderful beach house, it was a very pleasant experience and all of us had great moments. The house had everything we needed and more than what we expected. We enjoyed our time at your property and we can't wait to come back again'
HAITHAM & FAMILY - stayed late September 2014

'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

Carinya on the Beach is rated 4.8636 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Hidden Gem! My husband, two daughters (15, 13), two labradors and I had the BEST week at Carinya. First and foremost, the customer service from Deb was more than you could wish for - nothing was too hard for her. The property was super clean, had absolutely everything you needed, had an amazing deck to watch the world go by and for the first time ever - was actually REALLY dog friendly! You can sunbake on the deck or grab a spot under the tree in the front yard (which is super secluded behind all the trees) - and that is after you have pulled yourself from the beach which IS on your doorstep! My kids loved it - the dogs loved it and even my fussy husband loved it! It was a win for me! Highly recommend it - a fabulous family spot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do yourself a favour & book this house This was our second stay at Carinya and was once again, unreal. Our stay was after recent extra renovations which meant we now were able to access the great beach front deck direct from the living areas. The newly pergola-ed BBQ area also added to our stay as we were still able to BBQ & eat outside, even during a little wet weather. Deb & Garry thanks once again for providing us with 5 star + accommodation & your personal touch throughout the initial booking process, to well after our stay was very much appreciated. We look forward to returning in early 2015 for a very much needed break after the 'festive season' & all related activities ahead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peaceful location for relaxing Our family enjoyed a relaxing two night stay at Carinya on the Beach. It was lovely to hear the sound of the waves crashing on the shore line as we woke up in the morning. We enjoyed walks along the beach and exploring the area around Jarvis Bay. Having a new puppy, we also appreciated that the house was pet friendly with secure fencing around the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic property! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Carinya. We entertained family from overseas for a week here and it was the perfect location to explore Jervis Bay and surrounds. The location of the house is amazing and we enjoyed so much local seafood on the enormous deck overlooking the bay. There was plenty of room for everyone and absolutely everything under the sun was provided for us. We had regular visits from the local birdlife in the garden and the area has so many Kangaroos. It was lovely to walk out the gate and be at the waters edge, then walk for only 10 minutes or so and be completely secluded! We would definitely stay here again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST HOLIDAY HOUSE EVER From the minute we made an inquiry on this property to well after our stay the owners were incredibly helpful. We stayed here with family members aged between 1-80 & our 2 dogs & we were told 'not to bring a thing apart from our clothes' How true this was. We have NEVER stayed in a holiday house like this before, & we have been holiday renting now for more than 10 years. Deb, the owner was correct in her advice. We arrived to a beautifully appointed holiday house with the most amazing views & that beach front deck...unbelievable & straight away we felt like we were staying in a 'home away from home' We had a bottle of wine chilled in the fridge, a huge box of chocolates & a personal welcome note awaiting us. EVERYTHING was provided. Carinya has a rotating kitchen pantry/fridge (salt, flour, rice, sugar, sauces coffee/teas etc etc etc) it was full of items, we did not have to bring or go out to buy, this property even supplies beach towels!! The items for the children once again blew us away, 5 boxes of toys/books that catered for all ages of our children 1-10 The cot, play toys, musical play mats and even a brand new baby walker. AND the dogs, well this also amazed us as well as we have stayed in other local properties that say they are 'dog friendly' but are not. This property out does them all. The new fencing is exactly as Deb said. It is so doggy proof,& needed to be as our dogs range in weight 2kgs-10kgs, Not chance at this house for them to even think of escaping. WOW that new main bathroom....apart from the huge spa bath it even has a viewing window in the shower, so we could enjoy looking at the beach/yachts whilst showering!! All the bedrooms were so well appointed and covered us staying with 4 couples & 5 children, each bedroom has wall mounted TV/DVD players & ceiling fans.. Look we could go on forever, the best thing to do is go & check it out yourselves as you will NOT be disappointed or feel let down on your decision to stay there, The week after we stayed we booked to stay again in September & cannot wait...ohh another thing thank you for providing the wireless internet free of charge as my wife still needed to work, another bonus to this already incredible holiday home. WE LOVED THIS HOUSE and cannot wait to return in September. Thanks so much Deb for allowing us to stay at your amazing property & for providing everything we could ever wish for, bring on September soon............
