Rated 4 out of 5 by from lovely home in a perfect location! My family & I stayed at the Dream Catcher beach house for a weekend in Feb & couldn't fault the home or owners. The house is in a fantastic location within easy walking distance to South Beach, cafes, restaurants, the rock pool and Jetty. The location was fantastic and only a short drive to the shopping centre and bass point reserve which is a must see! The house is very clean, spacious and accommodating for a family. Beds were very comfortable, had everything and more you could need for a short or long getaway. Air conditioning in all bedrooms, 2 tvs, 2 bathrooms, large balcony with very clean bbq and well at stocked with kitchen appliances and utensils. We will be back! The adams family!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed, could be a great house! On first arrival we were greeted By John and welcomed. The house is modern and spacious and looked tidy on arrival, but on a closer look the house is very dirty. The kitchen cupboards, drawers, inside the fridge, the wardrobes are dirty. The lamps are covered in thick dust. The outside seating area is dirty and mouldy. The floors need a good wash our feet were black from the dirt. Under the coffee table is Dirty too. The utensils have seen better days and pans were not cleaned. Would of been nice to have glass, wine glasses not just plastic ones. The spa was not working great. The jets didn't work very well. The air con in the main bedroom upstairs didn't work and the lamp in the 2nd bedroom didn't work. Its Such a shame as this could be a great house if it had been cleaned to a higher standard. It's walking distance to the shops and beach. John the owner was easy to Deal with and kindly gave us a late checkout. Unfortunately based on how dirty the house is, I wouldn't stay here again. It's needs a complete (end of lease style) clean. If this was to happen and the spa was fixed then it would be a great place to stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, amazing, amazing Having stayed in many holiday houses, this place is the leader of the pack. The house is superbly presented, spacious, close to everything (especially the beaches and the pool) and allowed us one of the most relaxing and enjoyable holidays in a very long time. Highly, highly recommended (read wouldn't stay anywhere else in Shellharbour)!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dream Catcher Beach House review Our stay at the Dream Catcher Beach House could almost not be faulted. We had great customer service from the property manager with the lead up to our stay. On arrival gaining access to the property was easy and we found the house in excellent condition. We had issues getting the BBQ working and ended up cooking on 1 burner only, which was disappointing. We found the outdoor spa tricky to get warmed up and the bins hadn't been emptied in some time before our stay. Regardless of the above negative points, the property manager was attentive tried to address each issue when we raised them. The property on the whole was great and we would consider staying again.
