Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property, very close to all amenities, we enjoyed our stay at the above property very much, it was amazing to find all things that would be required were there, the owner has given a lot of thought when setting up the property, the property is very comfortable to live in, it was wonderful that we were able to take our dog, we will be back to this property in the future, and recommend it to anyone that is looking for a quality holiday house for a stay in the Yamba/Iluka area

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a gem! Great, great, great. After 2 weeks on the road with my mum and Jack Russell dog this was the pinnacle of accommodation for us. Great large back, side and front yard for the dog to explore, great location to everything (best fish and chips I have every had in my life) and great house, very stylish, clean and authentic. We felt very at home here. Oh and did I mention it was great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Pleasant Stay We recently stayed at Cowrie Cottage for four nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The home is just around the corner from the shops, a street back from the water and right across the road from playing fields and the bowls club. The location is perfect. There is a big yard - wonderful for the dogs - and the home itself is quite comfortable and very well equipped. Our time there reminded me of seaside holidays as a child ... lots of good memories came flooding back..!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything we needed and more Recently stayed for a couple of days at Cowrie Cottage. The house is furnished pleasantly and tastefully and filled with things that make a holiday stay easy and interesting. Place to clean fish, great barbeque, fully kitted out kitchen. If you have kids this is the place to go. Big yard fully fenced. We enjoyed it just with doggie and canoe (caught a huge flathead...).
