About Kerry and Peter
Have been in hospitality for 32 years, have had properties in QLD but they were managed, therefore it's a pleasure for us to manage this property ourselves, add personal touches and pay attention to detail in order to make this a comfortable stay for our guests.
Why Kerry and Peter chose Patonga
We fell in love!
What makes this House unique
The Patonga Old School House is a Heritage Listed home built around 1919. It has been renovated and provides a quaint ambient atmosphere conducive to relaxation. It's a level home and sleeps seven persons and has the facilities suitable for a baby or young child/ren. Fully equipped kitchen, BBQ and pergola is perfect for family get togethers and reunions. A short level stroll to the bay, beach, boat ramp and shore walks as well as the newly renovated Boat House Hotel and Restaurant which is open for early morning coffee, breakfasts etc and offers sensational beachfront views. We have furnished and equipped the house with a view to guests comfort and although only a short walk to the hotel, it is very quiet and pet friendly (upon negotiation).
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:

School House Pataonga
Great property, well located and excellent hosts.
"The Old School House Is not so Old"
When we first arriving there, we thought:"Woo, It is a old house!" However, we changed view imminently once opened door. It is not felt "old" any more. It is bright and the rooms are beautiful, clean, comfortable. Plenty towels and toiletry supplies...... It give us a new house feeling!
We had the absolute joy of hosting Jenny and family!
The house was treated with utmost respect and left beautifully clean and tidy!
Jenny is a great communicator, leaving us a personal message that warmed our hearts! I would happily recommend Jenny to any future hosts and will be delighted to host her again!
The old Schoolhouse Patonga
House was built in 1919 but is very well updated now! Only concern was no air con, but plenty of ceiling fans - only internet is Telstra but a bit further in town gets all others. Also due to cliff behind the house, does not get much sun until late afternoon so grass a bit damp, but good outdoor wooden deck with table and chairs. Patonga has no groceries or service stations but close drive to Umina. Excellent restaurant close by - The Boathouse. Very dog friendly environment, including leash free beach. Very comfortable house and well set up. Anzac Day memorial right outside the house at 5.30 am - really beautiful. Highly recommend patonga and the old Schoolhouse!
Karen and husband were extremely pleasant people and I would highly reccomend them to any future hosts. We, as hosts had a few unexpected hiccups,however. Karen was completely understanding that sometimes things can be unprecedented and that these things will be immediately addressed. Air con is being investigated as we speak and I have it on good authority that an Optus tower is under approval/construction. We would be happy to hosts Karen and family again and highly reccomend them to any future hosts, great communications and house rules followed, house left clean and tidy!
Perfect location and amenities
Really well set up, cute and cosy house in perfect location.

Thank you so much for the great review and especially for leaving the house so clean and tidy! I do hope you all were comfortable and enjoyed your stay.

Patonga Old School House
My family and I (and our little dog), loved this place! It was comfortable, superbly equipped and in a great location, a few minutes walk from the beach.
The hosts were super friendly and helpful.
We would definitely look at staying here again, and highly recommend it.
Thank you for the lovely review, we try and make sure our guests are as comfortable as possible, including the ‘furkids’!
The house was left so clean and tidy too, We are happy to reccomend you to future hosts as well as welcome you, should you ever wish to come again.
