Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, fresh and friendly Booked at the last minute, late in the day as we drove into town, and were pleased with our choice. Booking process was easy, we were welcomed with a light on and we enjoyed our chat with the owner the next morning. Recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top spot! Lovely quiet cottage for two, all the amenities you need, had fun with the high tech oven/hotplates. Very comfortable bed and lounge chairs, could not fault the accommodation. Good access to supermarket, found our way around Port Macquarie quite quickly. Sun shines on rear of cottage in early winter, a sun deck would have been nice, but probably not possible. Found Allan & Jan welcoming and helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! We spent 3 fantastic days over the Easter long weekend. Close drive to the Port Macquarie CBD, but felt so far away as it was situated near the forest and the beach. The interior was modern, bright and spacious for two. The extra little attention to details make it feel so luxurious. Highly recommended

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tropical garden...without privacy After a few hours of driving, found the house in suburbia. Then to add to disappointment we found the garden that had been displayed was not enclosed but open to the road. No privacy at all. The apartment itself was clean and tidy. But the garden had been the thing that sold us and sadly it was not as seemed advertised. We were so unimpressed we left within 30mins of arriving.
