Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely property We had a wonderful stay in the Cottage. The property is beautiful. Just five mins away, via private path, to the beach. Our two little dogs were in heaven. Lots of space outside and in. The house itself has old world charm and is in fantastic condition. Loved the ancient (for Aus) hand sawn floor boards in the bedrooms. Arranging keys etc was hassle free A perfect family holiday stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome place Narrawong Cottage was perfect for our 2 legged and 4 legged family. Great access to virtually your own private beach via a short stroll over the dunes. Sally looked after us and kept us informed on the Total Fire Ban day. Great selection of DVDs and games to keep the boys and us amused at night. Thanks Sally for a great week. We would love to return some time in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great retreat A great house, lots of charm and very comfortable. And being able to walk down your own path to a long, empty beach is a real treat. We will certainly stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful and Private Beautiful and cosy historic cottage with very comfortable beds and pillows. Slept so well with the sound of the ocean. Lovely old-fashioned garden, plenty of outside space. Our dogs thoroughly enjoyed the leash-free beach which was only about a five minute walk from the cottage. Plenty of interesting tourist attractions in neighbouring towns.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another fantastic stay at The Cottage This is our third stay at The Cottage and once again we had a relaxing time in a lovely old house in beautiful surroundings. We were so happy we chose to come back as we find the garden and the private beach a wonderful place to walk with all the family. Our six year old son loves the place too and it is perfectly set up for all the family and dogs too. Thanks Sally for another memorable stay.
