This location is a dream for those wanting a private beach getaway. We came here for a mini winter babymoon and were relaxed from the moment we arrived. Sitting by the wood fire watching the waves roll in was so lovely on those cold wintery nights. The house is rustic and cozy. The furniture and beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were vintage but clean. The house was surprisingly warm for the middle of winter even without the fire going. Having the beach at your doorstep is a luxury that we loved. The fact that our dog could join us was icing on the cake and he had the time of his life. My only negative was that there was a very strong smell of mould that came from the kitchen cupboards. It was overwhelming every time the cupboards were opened and really put us off using anything in those cupboards. Also a few of the door handles were loose/wobbly and didn't want to open so we just didn't use those doors in case we couldn't get the doors back open.
Stunning location, quiet and undisturbed, beautiful spot in winter - watching the waves and sunset with the beautiful fire inside. We brought our own wood for the fire but there is some at the home too. Kitchen is well stocked with utensils, serving plates etc. Do yourself a favour and walk (carefully!) around the cliff to the right of the home to the beautiful cliff and beach - stunning!!
Beautiful location Amazing beach house in even better location. Must go and see.
Location location location It was my 19th wedding anniversary & we have always dreamed of staying in this isolated beach shack perched on the cliff. Overlooking the spectacular water of Carackalinga beach. Our family had the best time swimming in the crystal waters, watching the dolphins & playing games. The house is perfect, like walking into a 70s movie, retro, wooden paneled, exquisite sunsets & soulful. Thank you
Spectacular Views!! Stayed for 2 nights for my ladies 60th celebrations. The house was roomy and the views just amazing. Best place I've stayed right on the oceanfront. Would love to revisit with the dogs.
Great view Great view of the amazing beach from the balcony and a stylish interior made for a welcoming trip to the beach for a few days!
Amazing location Amazing location with stunning views over the beach! A classic beach shack with retro vibes and good working amenities. Great helpful communication, would stay again!
Memories Made!!!! This house is so lovely. We loved the location even though the weather was a bit cold, hopefully next year when we plan on booking again, the weather will be better. I can't say enough about the house, location, amenities and booking agent. All perfect. Thank you for letting us stay.
Beautiful We had a wonderful weekend. Have decided to make it annual
Lovely shack The house is in an excellent position overlooking the ocean which made the stay very enjoyable. Everything we needed was there.
