There is even a day spa if you want to reward yourself with a massage or facial.

For those who wish to venture further afield it is a short drive into Berry through lush dairy countryside. In Berry you’ll find; antique shops, toyshops, cafés, a pub, sweet shops, restaurants, wineries and the popular Berry Sourdough café and bakery. The vibrant monthly local market is also is well-worth a visit. Nowra is only a 20-minute drive and there are plenty of pristine beaches to explore further down the coast in Jervis Bay.

Water Gum Cottage is set back from the road in a lovely grassed area with shading trees. The back garden is a fully fenced safe area for children and dogs to play and perfect for a game of backyard cricket. The rear covered-deck has a BBQ and outdoor setting - a wonderful spot for alfresco dining or unwinding with a glass of wine and a good book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful House We had a fantastic holiday in this house during the January holidays. This was the most well-equipped house I have ever stayed in. We had everything at our fingertips for a gourmet lunch or a BBQ dinner and there was an excellent selection of DVDs to keep us entertained at the end of the day. The bay is beautiful and our dogs loved heading down there every day. The back yard was our favourite place where our dogs could run around and we could enjoy our meals outside. This house is beautifully decorated but still extremely comfortable and the beds were very comfortable. Thank you for a lovely holiday. We will be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Holiday House We loved our stay at Water Gum Cottage. The home is very clean and welcoming. Very well equipped kitchen, many games and DVD's for the kids and grown ups. Great backyard and deck makes for easy holiday living. So close to Callala Bay - a magnificent, child friendly beach. We spotted fish, crab, octopus and a stingray from the jetty. The kids were thrilled! Water Gum Cottage caters for puppies too which is a bonus for our family. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water Gum Cottage A regular catch up weekend for friends from different areas. Bonus that one of us could bring a dog and the beach only 5 mins walk away is dog friendly. House is compact, well appointedand with all mod cons. Could do with another toilet/bathroom but it all worked well for us. thanks to Meg a great weekend. Fabulous locality, quiet with shops & cafe nearby and two beaches to choose from within easy reach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Cottage near beautiful Jervis Bay Perfect getaway with everything you could want. The relaxing scents of the house reminded us of a day spa from the moment we walked in to when we left (way too early). Guests are well catered for with a "home away from home" from owners that have thought of everything. We could not fault the property. Hope to be back there soon.
