Wonderful holiday houseRhonda Douglas - 23rd March 2022
We had a perfect family weekend at Riversea - close to the beach and shop and so comfortable. Ambience was great especially with the gorgeous original art.
Excellent stay, amazing ocean viewsDidier Poisseroux - 14th March 2022
We really enjoyed our stay, the house, the huge balcony overlooking the ocean. To Holiday Collection, you make such a difference to offer a late check out until 4PM on Sunday, outside the peak season. A big thank you for that. Going forward, I will no longer rent holiday house with some of your competitors too greedy to offer the same. We will come back again
Fabulous place for a girls weekend awayMichelle Sorrensen - 15th February 2022
What a gorgeous view from the deck and perfect setup for our girls weekend away. We had everything we needed, beach, fireplace, great cafe within walking distance. Comfy beds. Will definitely be back.
Comfy family home!Jennifer Lucas - 11th January 2022
We have been staying at this property for a few years now. It never disappoints & we have rebooked for our holiday in 2023! Thanks again RIVERSEA COTTAGE, till next year. 🏖

Great spot close to the town of Berry, wonderful view of the Crooked River and Gerroa beach from the porch!
Great location. Recommend highly
Stay at RiverseaBev Pinto - 30th March 2021
Riversea has a great location and the property was comfortable. We enjoyed our 3 night stay at the property and thanks to Dee for the assistance provided. Adam the maintenance guy was prompt to attend to fix the TV issues we raised on Friday and was extremely helpful. A big thank you to both of you. A few cockroaches were noticed in the kitchen area esp the cutlery drawer and around the home. It would be best to get a pest control done asap.
A superb location and town.
Great place to stay, clean, comfy, well equipped and close to beach. Fabulous views and an easy drive to Berry and Kiama. We'll be back !
Prime spot in Gerroa with an amazing view from the deck...we had a wonderful stay! Highly recommended it has everything you need and an easy quick walk to the beach. Will definitely be back!
Fantastic location. A beautiful open living area which reaches out to a large balcony with beautiful ocean views.
Excellent property, position and spaceGarth Harris - 6th January 2021
We loved the property for our Christmas break. Great layout and well set up. Excellent position close to the beach with a nice view, but good privacy. Our only complaints were: -could have been a little better cleaned (drawers uncleaned); -one hairdryer didn't work/faulty, and other hairdryer needs replacing and grotty; -and a bit more hanging space for clothes would be an improvement. -oven could be upgraded. Overall, a very pleasant well set up place for a relaxing beach holiday.
Great holiday houseChris Last - 22nd December 2020
Lots of space and separate areas to relax, fantastic views, Air Con in main rooms and master Bedroom, and lovely log fire in lounge. Bathrooms clean and some new fittings through out the house which was clean and well presented, All Bedrooms and beds good, It is not a New Build but would highly recommend the house - it has everything you need as a family and is just a one min walk to get to beach, 2 mins walk to coffee shop / cafe and 30 seconds walk to local Post store with basic foods
Craig's place was great. Check in went smoothly. The place was clean and tidy. Kitchen was well equipped. The view from the house is beautiful. Airconditioning was only available in the main living area and one of the bedrooms (something to note for the warmer months). There were beautiful scenic views whilst driving around Gerroa. Really enjoyed the area and the place.
Great but not as advertisedGeorgina Eastwood - 21st November 2020
Great house with a beautiful view. Very disappointed that both Foxtel and ducted air conditioning were advertised yet neither works.
Great Location and HouseMax Thornhill - 16th November 2020
The house was great, lovely views and comfortable and clean. Lots of natural light through out and a very short walk to the beautiful beach. Very relaxed and chill area, would stay here again in a heartbeat.
We had a fabulous stay. The house was clean, tidy and very spacious. The view was spectacular and so close to a beautiful walk along Gerroa Beach
Great location with a lovely big balcony looking to the view. Big glass sliders make you feel very connected with outside. The master bedroom is quite separate from the other two bedrooms, which are actually well separated from each other - which was great for our family.
Beautiful house and locationKate - 22nd March 2020
Our family had a great weekend staying at this lovely property. The house was clean and tidy with everything we needed and only a 2 minute walk to the beach. We loved relaxing and enjoying the view from the balcony. Would definitely recommend this property.
GreatNicoleT - 18th February 2020
Great property and location. We would recommend this property to others.
Great views!Jennifer - 25th January 2020
Our family really enjoyed our stay at Riversea. The house is freshly painted and comfortably furnished. During our stay we had a huge storm that caused damage to the house but a quick call to the agent had a tradesman and the cleaners over to fix it all up within the hour. The bedrooms are a good size and offer all the comforts required. The kitchen is well appointed - the dishwasher is certainly a must! The bathrooms were clean and spacious, and use of the laundry with a dryer was essential for our rain interrupted stay. Most of all - the huge deck and views over the river to the beach are spectacular. BBQs overlooking 7 Mile beach were amazing - close enough to call everyone from the river up to the house for dinner!

Thank you for the early check-in and late check-out, it was a lovely place to stay
Fabulous holiday houseSarah - 10th February 2019
We had a great stay, so close to the beach, cafe and shop ... perfect for larger families. Nicely decorated and laid out.
Great location, pity about the mould.Davidjan19 - 14th January 2019
Riversea is in an excellent location with great layout and quality, comfortable furniture. Unfortunately, due to recent heavy rain and lack of regular, thorough cleaning, we were greeted by an overwhelming smell of mould- that lay over all the door and window frames, the "sunroom" curtains and ceiling, and main bed frame. With structural renovation and detailed regular cleaning this could be an ideal holiday house.
Great PropertyMelisaA - 13th November 2018
Great house for a getaway & overdue get together. Especially good for the kids.
Great Family Holiday HomeJCMM - 5th April 2018
Riversea is a fantastic home for the family to unwind, with lot's of open plan space and a great deck looking out to the ocean. It has a really nice 'lived in' character to it and feels like a quintessential beach holiday pad. Perhaps it's a little bit tired and rough around the edges, but it has everything you need, is comfortable and works really well with children. We'd definitely stay here again.
a lovely beach houseSteven - 20th February 2018
A lovely beach house with a relaxed holiday feel. Great view from the house and deck over the estuary and beach beyond. Very short walk to the beach. The local cafe / restaurant has very nice food and only a few mins walk away.
Great LocationMT17 - 4th December 2017
Great location for a relaxing holiday. Plenty of room and space in the house. Could do with a lick of paint and a bit of a tidy up/clean in the kitchen. Would recommend staying here. Gerroa is a beautiful place.

Our weekend away was fabulousVanessaR - 9th August 2016
Our weekend away was fabulous. We were a group of 8 ladies that needed to get away from Sydney and simply relax. The house is spacious, bright, comfortable and warm. The view of the beach from patio is gorgeous. I recommend this property to anyone who needs to de-stress. We would love to come again.
Love the location!Ellie - 5th May 2016
We have been here before and we love the location. 5 Stars!!!!!!!
Awesome house to stay at for the weekend!SiobhanT - 17th March 2016
Awesome house to stay at for the weekend! The house was very clean, nice layout and the view was amazing. Everything we needed was there too - kitchenware, linen etc. We spent most of our time out on the deck taking in the scenery, was very relaxing. The key was left in the lock-box out the front which was super convenient, and everyone I talked to in the office was very helpful. Such a great place, would definitely stay again and recommend to others!
great holidayKim - 28th January 2016
Fab holiday! We are definately coming back to this super location. A lovely stroll to beach, great facilities and plenty of room for everyone (2 families ages 6-50) to live together comfortably. comfy beds and super kitchen amazing view loads of space.LOVED IT THANKS so much :)
Wow at first sight!Andy - 6th January 2016
We opened the door and walked into the main room and was welcomed by jaw dropping views of the ocean and the little estuary at 7 mile beach. My family and I were ecstatic with the thought of spending a week here in this little south coast paradise. Though the decor is a bit dated, the stunning location overwhelmed any shortcoming. Perfect for a family getaway.
Thank you!SarahC - 9th December 2015
Absolutely loved our stay beautiful house, beautiful town. Thank you!
