Wonderful HomeMichelle - 24th October 2019
We had a great 4 day stay at Freshwater. We were a party of 9 & we thoroughly enjoyed the house & the stunning location. We cooked every night & found everything we needed in the kitchen. Breakfast on the balcony was wonderful. The configuration of the house was excellent for our group & we had plenty of space. Everyone found the beds comfortable. South Coast Holidays staff were very helpful & responsive to all our requests. We would definitely recommend this house & would love to come back again.

Cousins weekend awayMeredith - 30th June 2019
We have just spent a weekend at Freshwater, Gerroa. What a great house in a fabulous location. The views were to die for, I could have sat in the lounge room all day just looking at the view. The house was very spacious and very well set up, 5 bedrooms, three bathrooms, big living space and a large and functional kitchen which was very well stocked. I would definitely recommend this property and we will stay again. It also had direct access to the beach which we took advantage of with many lovely walks.

Perfect Beach LocationPennyF - 21st February 2019
Our family group of 8 enjoyed the most wonderful time at Freshwater in Gerroa in early February 2019. We found the location looking straight down Seven Mile Beach across from the mouth of the Crooked River absolutely amazing and the house perfect for our needs, really well equipped as well as spacious and very comfortable. Many thanks to the managers of the property in Gerringong who were so helpful on booking - looking forward to a return visit!
Great place to stay....5 stars!liz11 - 18th February 2019
Freshwater was a fabulous place for us as its not always easy to find somewhere that comfortably accommodates a family of ten. The house is in an enviable position right near the beach (the views are sensational) and has everything you need for a family stay. There are two well stocked kitchens with plenty of dishes, cutlery, serving platters etc. and two dishwashers! The house is really clean, the beds are comfy, although the two singles in the cottage could do with an update; there are lots of bathrooms, the sitting rooms are spacious and the deck is a wonderful place for family dinners. The property managers are very amenable and communication with them was great.

Fabulous LocationDB58 - 30th October 2018
A small family group have just returned from a great time at Freshwater. We were thrilled with the property, the views over the ever changing coast were magnificent. We walked on the beach, up to the headland and up to Fishermans Club for dinner. This location suited us very well.
Fantastic houseBerndadette - 18th June 2018
Freshwater is a great, spacious beach house that was perfect for our group of 4 couples and 3 young children. The weather was not the best, but with the heaters and such fantastic views from the house, we still loved every minute of the stay.
Fabulouscatherinee - 19th March 2018
Fabulous home, great view. Appreciate the little extras ie cleaning stuff, extra toilet paper, lots of kitchen equipment.
Wonderful property!Anne - 19th March 2018
We (9 friends) go away together on a regular basis. it is my task to find a home that suits everyone. Everyone agreed that this the the best house yet, and that we will all be happy to return!
Wonderful holiday houseSusan - 12th December 2017
I celebrated my 70th birthday with my children and grandchildren. It was perfect. Great facility, well supplied with all we needed, beautiful view, large living space and separate flat for the family with young children. It felt comfortable and cosy as though we had borrowed a friend's holiday house for the weekend - well equipped with books, videos, TV, video, Foxtel, wifi ...The only negative with the house was the single beds are sprung and not comfortable for adults. Everything else worked beautifully. We surfed, swam, played soccer on the beach, and walked. We could go to the Blue Swimmer Cafe for great coffee in the morning and birthday dinner on Saturday evening. I would use it again.
Girls WeekendKellAndTheGirls - 14th November 2017
Our Annual Girls Weekend was made even better by staying at this house. We have stayed at another house for other weekends and loved it, now we are even more in love with Freshwater and have booked again for next year, and for an extra night. We all can't wait to come back and relax and soak up the view and amazing sunset.
Fabulous locationKellieD - 13th November 2017
Fabulous property, amazing location and great service
better than photos!Blake - 9th November 2016
Freshwater is better then the photo's. It is larger then I thoughts and the sunsets from the balcony are stunning. If you are looking for a house for the weekend this is the one.
A great spot!SaritaE - 31st March 2016
A great spot! An excellent choice particularly if some family members would like their own space. It worked perfectly for my daughter and husband and their two little boys to have the separate accommodation, but at the same time be linked to the rest of the family staying in the main house. Location, location, location - right across fro the beach for the son who wanted to surf, and next to the river for the toddler who wanted to paddle. Well equipped with everything from milkshake makers to chocolate fountains!!! We will be back!
Fab placeAlan - 10th November 2015
With one of the best locations in Gerroa this property will not fail to impress. Despite the poor weather over the weekend the house was large enough and suitably equipped to keep everyone entertained. Will definitely book the house again
All excellentJoseph - 15th June 2015
Friends recommended that we stay here. We found everything to be just excellent - especially the view.
Beautiful view!KimV - 28th April 2015
We liked that the house was so well equipped. Beautiful view too. A hot tub on the deck would be great!
