Close to the sea, neat as a pin, spacious, tidy, comfortable and clean. Elandra is situated in the picturesque seaside village of Tuross Head, a 30 minute drive south of Bateman's Bay on the South Coast of NSW. If coming from Sydney then the quickest route is via the Hume highway through Goulburn, Tarago and Braidwood which takes less than four hours and is an hour less than taking the coast highway.
Tuross Head is an idyllic holiday spot with beautiful beaches, lakes and great fishing, surfing, pleasure boating and golf. Also enjoy the peace and quiet and the great bird, dolphin and whale watching. We have even seen fairy penguins and seals on the beach.

LAYOUT: Elandra is on two levels. Both the upper and lower floors have their own kitchens complete with fridge, microwave, cooktop, oven, crockery, cutlery and utensils. Both levels have their own full HD LCD TVs with USB input and DVD players (Blu Ray upstairs). There is also a toilet, shower, lounge room and two bedrooms on each level. The downstairs lounge room is smaller than the top floor one (see pictures in gallery). The top level is more spacious. The laundry is located downstairs. There is no internal access between the top and bottom floors - access is via uncovered external stairs. The images in our gallery also show our storage shed adjacent to the main building. Rest assured that this is just a locked storage shed and is unoccupied.
VALUE: The setup is ideal for large, extended or multiple families wishing to holiday together where they may enjoy all the comforts of home with all that this location offers and at low costs per head. To illustrate Elandra's value compare what Elandra offers with a beach cabin at the local caravan park and keep in mind that those cabins only accommodate 2 adults. Alternatively, there are cheaper, smaller, more basic dwellings at Tuross Head further back from the beach. We are confident you will see better value and reward in Elandra not just in cost but in the lasting and memorable quality of the experience you will have afforded yourself for your hard-earned and well-deserved getaway.
BEDS: There is a double bed in each of the four bedrooms and the two downstairs bedrooms also have a single bed in each. The larger of the two upstairs bedrooms also has a double decker bunk. All beds have woolen doonas and top of the line memory foam pillows. All beds are made up with fresh linen and bath towels are provided.

Stayz won't allow us to put the link in so use those search terms in a search engine to see what Tuross has to offer.
There are several beaches to choose from including one that is patrolled by lifeguards. They may all be reached via the one paved coastal footpath which makes getting to them so easy while walking, cycling or pushing a pram. Also, there are two calm, shallow, sandy-bottomed lakes. There is plenty of free car parking available at all beaches and lakes ( there isn't any pay parking in Tuross - you must go to Batemans Bay if you want pay parking or crowds).
Tuross has it's own shopping centre with groceries, liquor store, newsagent, and more. There are restaurants and one may hire a motor boat at the local boat shed.
EARLY CHECK IN and LATE CHECK OUT:
Standard check in time is 3pm and check out time is 10 am. With many of our bookings we offer our guests free (no charge) early check in (noon) and late check out (your choice of time) on their arrival and departure days. This is not offered by the local estate agents. We can't guarantee this at booking time however, one day before our guests arrive we check our bookings and if there are no conflicting arrivals or departures of other bookings we email our guests to authorise an early check in and we can also authorise a late check out on the evening before departure if there are no conflicts with arriving guests the following day. Past guests have been particularly appreciative of this element of what we offer them as few other holiday lettings are flexible in this regard. We will bend wherever possible to maximise the quality of our guests' stay.
ONE NIGHT STAYS: For most of the year we accept one night stays. Please add $80 surcharge for the indicated tariff for one night stays.
There is an outside shower downstairs for getting the sand off after your beach visits.
Pets are welcome subject to discussion and a nominal surcharge of $10 per day per pet. Tuross surf is sometimes ruff, ruff, ruff, huh, huh, huh, slobber, slobber, slobber!!
The beach sign at Tuross says "Dogs allowed" and it is not a typo. Our dogs love it at Elandra. They spend their days either on the beach or roaming free throughout the securely fenced back yard from where they can also access the sundeck . There are ticks in the bush so you have to know all about that stuff. For the nominal extra cost per pet we charge - why would you put them in a kennel? Give them the time of their lives instead. They must always stay outside and you must clean up any mess they may leave on the lawn and we want everyone's word of honour on that. If your pet must stay inside, or you are unable to leave it outside, or are unwilling to collect their droppings, then Elandra is not the place for you because we really must insist that animals remain outside and that our grounds are left free of doggie doo for the enjoyment of all those who may follow. Always mention your pet requirements when you enquire and we'll see whether everything is likely to be mutually suitable.
NO PARTY POLICY: Elandra is a premium property in a quiet location, with permanent neighbours and the last thing they or we would want is a buck's night, schoolies party, or drunken gathering happening next door. Consequently we do not accept such bookings. Our target demographic is quiet, reasonably sober (hic), socially responsible families or groups who party at home and come to Elandra for what they can't do at home - to quietly relax by the sea.
