Since buying it early in 2015 the new owners have been making some updates to ensure that it stays comfortable & that everything is in good working condition. We have re-organised the furniture and sorted and upgraded kitchen items and bought new bedding & lamps & a new BBQ & that fantastic new gas cooktop and upgraded the kitchen island & backsplash. The kids have kindly assisted in choosing & roadtesting some new board games

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning view in a relaxed setting It was impossible not to relax during our stay at Sea Haven. It's a peaceful home nestled amongst plenty of greenery, and with a great outlook to the lake and ocean. The many sleeping spaces and large living area meant our big family could spread out with plenty of room for everyone. Handy to local shops which had all the daily essentials, and to local beaches and Foster-Tuncurry. Bonus to have a large BBQ on the balcony where we enjoyed some great outdoor dining, including Xmas lunch. Great amenities. Owners have thought of everything. A fun time was had by all. Highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply devine The most perfect location and lovely accommodation, comfortable, clean, had all the things I needed (and more), wonderful costumer service, a great spot to base yourself for a trip to the Myall Lakes region.
