"Balaka" is Pottsville's best, absolute beachfront, pet friendly holiday house with real privacy and direct 50m access from backyard to beach.

Watch the waves break from your dining table, living room, kitchen or the full length deck.

Quintessential large Aussie beach house with 4 bedrooms to sleep 8, 2 bathrooms, upstairs and downstairs living rooms.

Large flat backyard, prefect for cricket, volleyball and football. Great for large groups with kids. Take the private path direct to the beach and swim between the flags out front (in summer school holidays) or stroll south to the protected estuary to swim or fish.

Enjoy the complete privacy of a nature reserve on 3 sides, with only the beach in front of you - you'll think you're in the middle of nowhere but in reality, your less than 1 klm to supermarket, liquor store, specialty shops, cafes, restaurants, bowls club etc.. and just 30 mins drive south to Byron Bay or 25 mins north to Coolangatta.

Well behaved dogs permitted - terms and conditions + additional fee applies. Pets not permitted inside property.

PLEASE NOTE: An additional $150.00 per pet will be added to the total tariff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensational property and location We had high expectations of the property, and certainly were not disappointed. The location is incredible. Watching whales and dolphins from the deck was such a unique experience for us, and one we will remember. The pathway to the beach, with the life guards immediately on the right (you can see the flags from the deck), to the left a dog friendly beach made holidaying with our dog very easy. The house was one of the cleanest holiday houses we have booked. Certainly one of the most spacious as well.The large kitchen and massive weber BBQ on the upstairs deck made meal time super easy. The concrete path that surrounds the house kept the kids entertained for hours with scooters and skates. Ordering linen via the linen service was such an easy and convenient thing to do. Pottsville is a lovely small town to visit, with all the basics one could need or want. Everything was easy. Balaka is a property we will want to book again!
