Weekend awayRenae Burns - 20th March 2022
We had a great stay. The inside was tidy. Beds were very comfortable. Ample parking. Was nice and close to the beach
Convenient little house close to the beachCaroline Denes - 1st March 2021
Good value for money close to the nice beach of Blenheim In the middle of the bush and surrounded by amazing birds and kangaroo The house is small but does the job
the perfect place to experience wildlife. friendly birds and even a kangaroo in the backyard. beautiful short walk through the bush to the beach and the hot outdoor showers are a plus. the space inside is small and simple. the bunk beds are only suitable for children really. As long as you expect no luxuries the place is great.
Overall we had a great time, we enjoyed the location and proximity to the beach as well as the bush setting.Silvana Vidal - 6th January 2021
Nice property, location it's great. It needs a thorough clean, specially under the beds and around the bunk beds! New mattresses protectors will be great and a new shower curtain. The outdoor shower it is very convenient however the shower head leaks and sprays water everywhere. The top verandah sensor light its unreliable, it needs to be fix. The smoke alarm needs new batteries . The bbq ignition doesn't work and it is dangerous when ignited manually. A vacuum cleaner would be handy.
A great location to beautiful beaches and nice and private. Great communication with the hosts. The common areas were great however just set your expectations, this place does need a bit of TLC inside.
Great family holiday locationHelen Fisher - 23rd November 2020
We had a lovely weekend here, with 5 adults, one teenager, one toddler and one baby fitting in neatly. The bush setting is a real highlight and the bird life was lovely. Blenham and Greenfields beaches are both suitable for little kids but also have enough rocks and bushwalking to keep others happy. Make sure you use the written description to work out what linen to take - the photos don't reflect the current set up of one double bed, two queen beds and two sets of single bunk beds.
Great location. Short walking distance to the beach. Peaceful area with good privacy. Firepit out the back was great.
A little faded gemCarol - 6th March 2019
A lovely location and basic little house in need of some attention. We did however have a great weekend with beautiful beaches very close by.
Great locationMacca354 - 1st January 2019
This house suited myself and my 4 grown up daughters and 2 grand children. Very quiet peaceful setting with the bush out the back with Kookaburras and king parrots. One bathroom offset by the outdoor twin shower which was great to use. Should advertise the fact that the walk to beach is down the back path for Blenheim about 8 minutes. Great map in entrance hall.
Lovely house!Evee - 28th September 2017
This is a great house - cute and cozy with a lovely living space upstairs. The interior is a little bit dated but we loved its quirky charm. Having 1 bathroom was a little difficult but it does have 2 toilets. It was a bit tight for 9 adults but still comfortable. It's in a quiet area but still within walkable distance to the beach.
Great locationDamien - 5th October 2016
Great location and house was suitable for two families and four boys.

Perfect for a weekend getawayTomMcDonald - 11th February 2016
Tayce made out weekend away a breeze, easy to communicate with and provide clear and simple instruction on the house. The house was perfect for a weekend getaway with friends. Nestled in a beautiful part of Vincentia. I especially appreciated the painting on the entrance all that showed all the walking tracks to the nearest beaches. The house it self was clean and tidy with a great living space to socialise and the beds are very comfy. Highly recommend property!
A perfect weekend getawayMaureen - 3rd February 2016
A perfect weekend getaway - absolutely serene location set amongst the beautiful bushlands and only a few minutes walk to the beach. The house itself was so lovely and had that real old-school beach house vibe. Wish we could have stayed longer! Special thanks to Tayce for making the stay so enjoyable and for her quick communication.
Wonderful houseChels - 11th January 2016
We had a fantastic stay in this property, great location and layout is perfect for two families. Peaceful and quiet, easy walk to the beach. My son said after "I think that was the best holiday house we've ever stayed in". Thanks to the staff at agency also; a pleasure to deal with !
