Great place to stay for a day or a week
Great little house, very well located, clean and well presented. No hidden surprises
Lovely little place very comfortable
As their was 4 of us we couldn’t always park all vehicles on the property as their was an unused boat in the carport. Not having a washing machine an oven in the property was inconvenient. No vacuum or brush an pan for cleaning on departure!!
The property description on the homeaway webdite makes it clear that there is undercover parking for one vehicle and that the washing machine is available by arrangement. Two cars fit easily into the yard and there is plenty of parking out the front on a very quiet street. We also make it clear in the property description that there is no oven - however the BBQ oven is good quality and does the job. The dust pan is under the kitchen sink and brooms in the kitchen are used on the vinly floor.
nice place, great view
close to all activities, yet quiet enough to relax, Rob very helpful even after hours... will return cheers
Will definitely book again
Been coming to Bemm River for about 20 years now and decided to try this place for the weekend. Was extremely happy with it. Definitely the best accommodation in Bemm I've ever booked.
Perfect place for a getaway with tranquil scenery to match.
Just what the doctor ordered.
Glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for watering the garden - all the best Rob and Cathy
Great location and cottage
We had a great stay in the cottage, utilised the kayaks in the inlet and down Bemm River. We took a small dog and backyard area was perfect for him. Area quiet and peaceful and rear deck great for relaxing. Loved the beaches and bush surrounds. Only negative things were there was no washing machine, Foxtel wasnt fully operational and no dvd player or coffee machine. If these not available add needs to be changed. General store has minimal supplies and pub quite expensive. Apart from these few negative aspects place was fantastic.
Don - the dvd is in the back of the tv - foxtel should have worked and i am surprised it didnt as it has never been a problem - washing machine is in the shed and can be accessed if required - i think i mentioned caretaker next door who can assist if you had a problem - there is a plunger for coffee not a machine - glad you enjoyed Bemm and its natural beauty - best wishes and thanks for looking after the cottage Rob and Cathy
