“Fantastic holiday rental”
Reviewed October 30, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Had a girls weekend with 9 girlfriends and this house was absolutely perfect. Plenty of space and well equipped with everything you need. Short walk to shops, pub and beach. Owner Jenni was an absolute pleasure to deal with and made the booking process very easy. Highly recommend!

“great house - great location”
Reviewed April 19, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Our stay at Jenni's house was fantastic.
I go to Shoal Bay every year for an outrigging event & this is the nicest place we've stayed.
Close to the beach & shops and plenty of space for our crew to relax in.

“Large house - perfect for family get-together over Easter”
Reviewed March 29, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Two storey beachouse (just an easy walk of a block and a bit back from Shoal Bay beach and shops) was perfect for our family get-together. Big under cover area downstairs for 3 cars or we parked cars on off street driveway and had the space for playing table tennis, etc. House has 5 separate bedrooms: 1 x queen and 1 x double bed downstairs with shared bathroom and upstairs is 2 x queen beds and 2 x singles with the second bathroom. The owners have been very thoughtful with a beach umbrella available for use + noodles for the pool, there are board games upstairs & a few DVDs to play as well. The house has a large deck upstairs with ample chairs and inside is a large dining table + sitting area with 3 x large couches + armchairs. The kitchen has ample crockery, cutlery, plastic plates & drinking glasses, dishwasher, etc. We paid extra for the linen package and were delighted to find all the beds were made-up before our arrival. Beds and pillows were comfortable. The owner was very responsive to all emails and our bond was quickly returned. We really enjoyed staying here and hope to return.

“GREAT WEEK AT SHOAL BAY”
Reviewed January 4, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Have just spend a week with four couples at this great five bedroom house, in perfect location in walking distance to beach and restaurants with the bonus of a pool to spend our afternoons around. Four bedrooms with Queen and an extra with two singles which was great for a couple of our teenage daughters who came up to spend a couple of nights. A big garage with a Ping Pong Table for some extra entertainment. Jenni was great to deal with from booking the house till we left.

Would recommend for any couples or two familes with young children.

“Large - well stocked house - perfect for quiet family get together.”
Reviewed December 31, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

4 bedroom house. Walk to beach and shops. Owners very responsive to questions or concerns. House was very clean. Very well stocked house for cooking at home. Dishwasher/washer/dryer worked well. Pool was great. Lots of beach/pool toys. Great ping pong table. Flat area at back of house is small but great for playing games. Very nicely landscaped. Very quiet residential area. Large dining room table that easily seats 12 with another large table outside. Lots of space for kids to hang separately from adults. Lots of parking. Bedrooms were large and lots of storage. Has air-conditioning. Lots of steps within house but upstairs (main living space and 2 bedrooms) has a door so if you are careful and keep the door closed little kids are okay. For elderly or disabled house would not be so good.

Had a fantastic time at this property, just a shame the weather wasn't warmer so we could use the pool. Brilliant location and very comfortable property.
