Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice house We stayed at this house while our daughter was playing hockey in Wollongong. I don't normally do reviews but thought this property deserved one. We knew what the property would be like prior to arriving from the pictures and Maria's comments. This property is a lot cheaper that the others and we would rate it as great value for our money. We enjoyed our 8 night stay here, whilst some parts of the property were old..... it just added to the charm!! Maria was accommodating to our requirements and if we are ever around this area again this property would be our first choice to stay.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Home stay It was like being at your own home and close to shops and attractions , but without a washing machine, not enough hot water for showers and to close to main highway, a bit noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My two friends and I stayed at this holiday house during our two-week community health nursing placement. The house was very comfortable, had great sunset views just outside the house, and provided us with all our necessities as university students. The house is also within five-minute drives to the big shopping centres, and within walking distances to the beaches, cafes and convenience stores. Compared to other accommodations, we're glad to have chosen this place to stay.
