LocationDean Corney - 19th January 2021
The location is the highlight. The beach house itself is an good old fashioned beach house. We had 4 people and it was fine for us, however the property says sleeps 9 which it can but it would be very crowded and some beds need updating to make them comfortable. The view and proximity are what we were after so the house suited us.
My family loved this place. Next to the beach and great views.
Location, Location, LocationPeter Crowley - 31st December 2020
Pros: Close to beach (across the road). Great view. Clean Deck Outside beach shower Cons: Very small dishwasher You will be charged $55 if you don't empty the dishwasher before you leave Very expensive (but my family loved it).
We enjoyed our stay at Rowse House, a lovely comfortable spacious home with all the essentials. Highly recommend as overlooking the beach and conveniently a few minutes walk from Chinamans and Hyams Beach.
Great amenities and views in the best part of hyams
Easy booking and good communication
Great location!David Byron - 13th November 2020
Great views, easy access to the beaches, comfortable and clean. Dog loved the enclosed verandah and walks along the beaches.
Great value for such a stunning location, we had everything that we needed and would book again.
This place was really great for a group of us travelling down south for the weekend! It’s very spacious, equipped with all the basics and the location is amazing- right along the water and had a great outdoor area. Would definitely recommend and would stay again!
Perfect location, great views, and everything we needed, including a very decked out kitchen that we weren’t expecting.
Comfortable enough but update neededChris - 26th December 2019
This house is exceptionally well located. It desparately needs updating. The carpet is threadbare in parts and bathrooms and kitchen are okay but ordinary. Lacking some basic kitchen items such as a colander. I wouldn't return without assurance that the property is in better nick.
Great locationMalcolm - 20th December 2019
An excellent way to spend our holiday. Everything was neat when we arrived, and we had a wonderful time. Thank you!
Relaxed Beach VibeKimbo - 2nd December 2019
Return trip to this stunningly located and relaxed beach house. Beautiful outlook with easy walk to the beach & bush walking paths. House is comfortable and retains its family character. Will be back!
Needs an updateLMUI - 1st December 2019
Was quite disappointed with this property. Needs a major update. Carpets stained and falling apart in places, lounge filthy and torn on arm, base on bed upstairs falling apart and very old. Some of the crockery/cutlery was not clean. Crumbs and ants on table. Bathrooms, kitchen, floorboards nice and clean though. The only thing going for the place was the location, which was fantastic. Nice view to the beach. Would not recommend this place or stay again.

Fabulous!Hatty - 21st July 2019
Our friends and we had the most wonderful and relaxing stay - killer location with relaxed vibe. The deck with those wonderful views is unbeatable. We will be back!
Great ocean viewXiaoyan - 11th March 2019
It’s a perfect spot and million dollars worth view! The house has all basic features we need. We are coming back again!
Settle in and enjoyCarmel - 5th December 2018
We have visited the Rowse House 3 times over the past 12 months. It is beautifully positioned at the quieter Chinamans Beach end of Hyams Beach, right on the front looking through the trees and over the bay, with wide knock-out views from the living areas and two of the upstairs bedrooms. Walks from the house are gorgeous, as is the national park nearby. As you can see from the photos, the house itself is not glam or schmick, rather a comfortable well-furnished holiday home, clearly enjoyed by the owners themselves for decades. There are lots of lovely spots for reading and chatting and mooching, the kitchen is well set up for cooking, and by comparison it is very reasonably priced. Comfort level for 2-4 is excellent, for 6-8 a bit less so, as you'd expect at this price point. All in all, we find it a very pleasurable place to stay.
Great value for moneySick_of_Sydney - 17th October 2018
A nice, clean 4 bedroom property with large living area and great views of Jervis Bay. The mattresses were very comfortable (unlike many holiday homes). the property is showing its age but ver good value for money. I would definitely stay at Rowse House again.
Great location, not so cleanAngelika - 16th March 2018
This house is in a great location and has quite a 'family' feel to it. Unfortunately it's not fenced, which means that kids and the dog could not use the backyard. Most of the crockery was dirty and greasy, and some plates had chunks of food stuck to them, which was disgusting. Some towels were also dirty and the upstairs bathroom could use a thorough clean. The house is good value for money if you are willing to wash all the dishes before using them and bring your own clean towels.
