Great location with a few let downs. Had a great time away with my partner and 1 year old son. The location is beautiful with an ocean/river view. Property was abit hard to find hidden away with a small drive way. Few let downs with the TV cracked in the corner could watch the tv but had black through the picture, shower door was broken and there were dirty dishes found in the oven (considering there's a cleaning fee would expect to rock up to a clean property when arrive). The stairs are very steep and small with no light for nighttime to watch where your going. I wouldn't suggest staying here if you have young ones because of the stairs inside and outside the property.

Natural gem The location is stunning with a view of the creek and the sea and the sound of waves crashing on the beach at night. We had some great weather to enjoy the beach and the wildlife. Some TLC for the house would make this an unforgettable holiday location to enjoy with pets.
Hidden Gem What a view! Superb location only a couple of minutes walk to the beach with a beautiful view to the ocean and gorgeous sunsets. Very well equipped kitchen, the owners have thought of everything. Bed is comfy, A/C very quiet and efficient and overall it is very cosy and comfortable. ALways on the hunt for pet friendly places and this may now be our favourite place in Carrickalinga! Thank you to Sandy the owner for the chocolates and wine she left after we were unable to use the downstairs bedroom due to water damage. We definitely hope to be back!
Beach Shack 'A nice compact place in a stunning location. A short walk to a beautiful beach. A perfect weekend getaway.'
Thanks for sharing this home. Thanks for sharing this home. Cosy and small. Would best suited to cooler months when the western sun is mild and you can enjoy the uninterrupted beach/creek view.
House was delightful Well presented, great location and brilliantly equipped. Could become our regular booking.
Was a wonderful place Was a wonderful place and made for a very relaxing and refreshing break. Loved the early morning beach walks and relaxing watching the birds, kangaroos and stunning sunsets. Would highly recommend.
Extremely relaxing! The weekend spent at Socks 'N' Sandals was extremely relaxing and better than hubby and I had anticipated. The cabin was extremely clean and had everything we needed for a weekend stay. It was wonderful to bring our two labradors with us as the off leash beach entertained them for hours. We look forward to staying again in the future.
Loved it & will be back! Just wish it had a washing machine.
Everything excellent, compact & comfy; near beach, birds, quiet, warm & protected so fab in winter with views of wild sea from warm lounge.(Steep-stairs OK except for infirm elderly.)
Lovely place with lots of character, warmth and an amazing view. We will be staying there again.
I love this place. As soon as you arrive you notice an uninterrupted view across the river to the ocean. The home is tastefully and thoughtfully appointed with everything you need including reliable internet and coffee machine. I have stayed in both summer and winter and it it is a lovely haven in all seasons. It is so private you can dress how you like or not!
