Geo/foodie/dogcentric/roadtripper My family live locally and manage the property for me so you get the personal touch.
Jane purchased this House in 2008
Why Jane chose Broulee
My family have lived on the South Coast of NSW now for ~30yrs, and Broulee is just a magical spot for a holiday.
What makes this House unique
Candlagan Creek House is a very peaceful spot to unwind and relax. I love heading out the back gate straight onto the Creek and launch my SUP, or wandering up the Creek to swim near the bridge with kids, or heading around the walking path around to the Mossy Point headland, absolutely magic ocean views all the way.

Was great for us
All our expectations were met. Everything we looked for in the kitchen was there. Very comfortable.

Had a wonderfully stay, very peaceful location, great time at the beach with family, fab!
Thanks for being such lovely guests, look forward to hosting you next time!
Centrally located, entertainers delight
We had eight adults stay at Jane’s place for three nights, and it was a very pleasant and relaxing stay. We enjoyed the spaciousness of the house, especially the upstairs open plan living and dining space, and the large and well appointed kitchen. The dining table was rustic, and perfect for entertaining with the cheese platters we made using local Coastal produce.
The location is very central and we used it as a base to explore up and down the coast. It was only minutes away from the Mogo Zoo, a local well stocked IGA and the Tomakin Sports Club. The creek at the back of the property made for a great backdrop and the beach was only a short walk down the street.
Jane kept us well informed prior to our visit, and as keen foodies we took up her suggestion to visit the Moruya Sage Farmers Markets where we bought some lovely fresh seafood, local beef steaks and fresh salad.
Highly recommend property.
Jane's place is great. It was perfect for our grandkids with easy access to the beach and creek and the large spaces in the house were perfect - we could have times together and apart and lots of outdoor time. The basket of Easter goodies was also very much appreciated and the kitchen was really well stocked with everything we needed. We had a couple of small problems while we were there and Jane's response was quick and helpful. Overall we had a wonderful week and Jane's place was perfect for what we wanted. Thanks Jane
Dear Jill, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this great review; since creating the downstairs rumpus room incl TV our guests have found it easier to keep the younger members of the family entertained. Appreciate you letting me know during your stay that one of the remote controls was missing and that there was some water in the bottom of the pots and pans drawer. Jackie will be chuffed that the Easter Egg basket she put together was loved, will make sure I tell her!
Thanks again for being such a pleasure to deal with, and we look forward to hosting you and yours again, kind regards, Jane
We had a fantastic stay at this property. We booked very late in the day and Jane was extremely accomodating. Highly recommended!
Thank you Andree for your lovely review, we were very happy to host your family at such short notice. It's such a lovely spot for a family holiday, and we look forward to hosting you next time,
Very relaxing and beautiful area
The property is in a great location and is set up well for outdoor living. The outlook at the rear to the creek is very pleasant.
The house is well appointed with all you need for the stay. We were there 10 days in total.
We were very surprised and disappointed at the state of the house as we were told the cleaner spent the day there before we arrived preparing it. The house itself left a lot to be desired as far as cleanliness is conconcered.
The outdoor setting and back balcony were filthy, they looked like they hadn't been cleaned in months, with a thick layer of dirt covering everything. This was not from a recent storm etc, it had obviously built up over time.
Inside there was human hair in the bathroom and toilet. The living areas had spiders webs in nearly every corner of most rooms and the floors were also dusty in the corners.
The main fridge in the kitchen had mould on the outside of the door.
Because of this we spent some time cleaning all these areas. We actually hosed and washed down the entire back balcony.and outdoor setting so we could use it.
There was also a small plastic seat/storage unit on the balcony which also obviously hadn't been cleaned in months, we also cleaned this. The downstairs bedroom smelt a bit damp and musty, maybe due to every window being totally closed, for long periods?
The fact that it was so dirty was a real pity as the house itself was quite good. We photographed and videoed all of this and left the house cleaner than when we arrived.
As we were there for 10 days we were annoyed, but not enough to complain as we had time to clean it.
If it was a short stay we would have been really peed off.
Thank you for sharing your feedback, we’re very sorry your experience didn’t match your expectations. It was an uncommon instance as our many 5* reviews testify however we are more than happy to try to do better.
Regarding your comments around the rear deck area and firewood storage box, it can be tricky keeping them spotless with the unusually frequent rain and dust storms that we’ve experienced recently as it’s open on three sides to the weather. The cobwebs you mentioned in the open-plan living area are up so high with the huge vaulted ceilings that it's not actually safe for my cleaner to access during her regular cleans. I employ a subcontractor to do this as he has all the appropriate gear and can do it safely.
Re the musty smell in the downstairs bedroom, I am unaware of any issues there but as always you can never be too careful so will send my plumber in to check everything is OK. I will also organise to replace the seal around the fridge/freezer door.
I appreciate that we cannot get it right all of the time but would hope that when we make a mistake, we really try to rectify it during the guests stay, to ensure that they leave us feeling happy and relaxed. Be assured that if you had mentioned any of these issues during your phonecall with my hardworking cleaner a day or two after you checked in around how to use the washing machine, we would have tried our utmost to resolve your concerns immediately whilst you were out enjoying the beach. Thanks to your feedback however, we’ve created a housekeeping checklist so we can be sure to cover all of the spots we may miss.
Look forward to hosting you again and hopefully exceeding your expectations.
