Picture PerfectXandro & Michelle Lombardi - 26th April 2021
Lovely property with stunning views and perfect location for walking to Boat Harbour, Werri Beach and Gerringong cafes and shops. The gas log fire, fresh herbs in the garden and large selection of CD’s and DVDs are a wonderful bonus. Well stocked, generous supplies and lots of special touches. This was our second visit and we are planning our third.
Views are amazingLuz Vasquez - 12th April 2021
Beautiful living room with stunning views..service from Holidays Collection was outstanding, everyone I spoke to was kind no matter how silly the question was.
We had the most memorable stay at Craig's place in Gerringong. The house was very spacious and the views of the ocean were stunning. We especially loved waking up the sound of the crashing waves! We can't wait to stay again.
Lovely location and very beautiful space, will definitely be back.
Stunning spot with a fantastic view, a very comfortable space and walking distance to everything nearby (central Gerringong, Werri Beach etc). We had a wonderful weekend in the sun, highly recommend!
The house was amazing. We very much enjoyed our stay and the view was even better in real life! Lots of space and the amenities were great too. A short stroll to the shops.
Great views and location with spacey kitchen and living
Amazing, tranquil getaway. Perfect for a reset weekend and enjoy all the south coast has to offer.
Loved our amazing stay at craigs place!! The photos dont do the view justice - we were pleasantly surprised by the large balacony and amazing views from the indoor glass window walls. Had such an amazing time spending the days at the beach with our dog who loved curling up in his bed infront of the fire at the end of a big day (we had cooler weather so the fireplace was a beautiful touch)
Perfect place to resetVic Gigliotti - 1st February 2021
Another amazing stay at our favourite getaway. Looking forward to visiting again soon.
Great spot - even for an unexpectedly rainy week!
Great place even for a rainy weekLaura Foster - 5th January 2021
We were worried that our beach holiday had been side tracked by a rainy forecast but we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves inside with an amazing view - rain or shine! The house was clean and comfortable with plenty of space for two of us with our dog. The well stocked kitchen was easy to use for cooking meals with everything we needed.
Another great stayColin Watson - 14th December 2020

Really amazing place to spend a weekend. Will definitely come back again.
Great ViewRabit5540 - 25th May 2019
Yes the view was great we were just sorry that there were no whales passing while we were there. We do think that there should be some mention of the angle of the driveway or a photo, we are not as agile as some younger visitors so the driveway was a bit of a surprise, which we did conquer. Also the bath sheets provided were great but drying them was problem (not using the actual clothes dryer) a smaller towel would have been quite sufficient and would be far easier to manage. We did enjoy our stay and the house was great and thank you to our hosts

Perfect place for a weekend getawayNoraM - 2nd August 2016
Over the June long week we spent 3 nights at Whale Watch cottage and could not have asked for a better experience. The property is well located within an easy walk of the Main Street in Gerringong. It is very well presented, well equipped, very clean and had a great view of the ocean. It is the perfect place for a getaway weekend or a longer holiday and we were fortunate in that we saw whales while sitting in the lounge. I would not hesitate to recommend this property
Beautiful viewRobert - 10th February 2016
Beautiful view, could have stared out the long stretching windows all day. The weather wasn't great but the view made up for that. Great place to relax. Only bad thing was a lack of air conditioning or even a fan. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to my friends and family.
Absolutely stunning home in a glorious locationMikeW - 21st January 2016
Absolutely stunning home in a glorious location. The living area and front balcony have amazing views over the boat harbor headland. Very comfy lounges to kick back an enjoy the outlook. The walk over the headland to Gerringong starts at the front door and is amazing. Easy and convenient check in process - everything we needed was on hand and a mobile number provided if we had any issues.
Great house in a great townPaulc - 2nd December 2015
Whale watch was perfect for us. You can tell a lot of energy has been put into making the house comfortable. We have a little baby and there was easily enough space for the 3 of us. Lots of nice sitting areas, a modern kitchen and a great ocean view. Definitely recommended.
The house was absolutely beautifulVicG - 8th October 2015
The house was absolutely beautiful with stylish and modern furnishings plus a fantastic kitchen. Our favourite part of the house was the front deck overlooking the ocean and seeing a pod of dolphins swim past. Our dog Charlie Brown had the best weekend of his life spending days on Werri Beach running in and out of the water. We highly recommend the house to other couples looking for a peaceful getaway to unwind.
