Corlette Gem! Everything about this little gem is fabulous. Plenty of spacious living areas for you and also your furry friends. We enjoyed walk-in down to off lead dog beach for the evening sunset and have all the shops/marina/cafes within close driving distance. House was very clean and we enjoyed the BBQ and outdoor area. Will definitely stay again!

Hi Ann Thanks for your great feedback. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Bonito and agree it is a Corlette gem. It is a beautiful and spacious pet friendly holiday home close to the local dog friendly beaches and amenities. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Warm regards O'Meara Property Holiday Team

Overall we are very happy with our stay. The best part is how close it is to Bagnalls and Dutchman's beach. Bagnalls is a off leash dog beach which our dogs loved. Dutchmans is a small beach that can be walked to from the house, and is great for small kids. A few things to note, the house has ducts for ducted air conditioning, however, it is not connected. We didn't have and temperatures above high 20 degrees but I imagine on days over 30 degrees the house would get very warm and muggy. There is only 1 split system air conditioner in the rear room but it does not cool the whole home. All rooms do have fans which help. The house is very dog friendly. They have extra bedding, towels, bowls and minimal carpet. However, important to note that the backyard only has lower fences so any dog that can jump over it would be able to escape. This is not a complaint as we were mad aware of this before booking but worth noting if you'd like to leave your dogs outside unattended. The guest book does note that you are allowed to leave the dogs inside so that is a plus. We didn't want to risk our dogs damaging any furniture so we had then in the garage when we were out, which has some old carpet and a fan. We were very happy with the house and stay overall. It has plenty of space and all amenities needed. Would stay again.

The location is great just 2 minutes walk to the beach. Very nice house . I absolutely loved my holidays there.


Beautiful home with a great location.


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 26 Bonito and were very happy with the layout of the house and the amount of space. It is a beautiful home with a wonderful location. Our dogs loved the walks and paddles on the pristine beach as did we. I would absolutely recommend this property for a great holiday. Cheers Anne and Alan.


Fantastic house


Great location.Every mod con you could ask for.Comfortable beds, sunny light filled sitting rooms.The courtyard was very pleasant to sit out in.The owners have done a great job with the house and I would highly recommend it.A bonus having cycles to use too.


Quality House


We loved our winter stay. The house has everything you need. Comfy beds, warm bedding and heaters, interesting books, DVD collection and games. The sunbathed courtyard area with cane chairs was the best. So close to the water - a couple of minutes walk. A highlight was the picturesque walk along the bike path to and from Nelson Bay with our dog.


Pet friendly house.


Great location, lovely home, very comfortable, clean and extremely well positioned to the dog beach for 3or4 walks and swim's each day.


Pet friendly, look no further


If you love a holiday house which is pet friendly look no further. Fenced yard, dog bowls, beds, towels supplied and the perfect location to the dog beach. The house and yard are very well maintained and the kitchen fantastically equipped. The house is positioned one min walk to a footpath, which is the most stunning coastal walk into Nelson Bay town centre. (15min easy walk) Highly recommend


Good Location


Yes, the bathroom does need updating. I found it hard to sleep with the skylight over our heads. Maybe the bed could be moved or the skylight have a shield on it. This house had everything we needed for our holiday. Thank you


Almost perfect


Love this house. Comfortable, great location and close to the dog beach. But, mattress in master bedroom is too soft and low to the ground. Ceiling fan is too noisy to be used at night and the oven could come into the 21st century.


Great for dog and Seniors!


It's all been said before, except the en-suite needed a little TLC. Great garden and location.


Great Property


This is a unique experience. Due to the generosity of the owner it is like having your very own beach house, just the way you like it. Everything you need is here to a high standard. Our dog enjoyed his beach access and we loved the location too.


Loved it!


This was a perfect home away from home. The house is surprisingly well equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable few days away. Our dog had the time of her life bounding along the sand, chasing birds and meeting other dogs. We’ll definitely be back.


Very comfortable ,every need met. Will stay again.


Excellent in all ways, caters for all needs including pets.


Lovely house in great location


We had a great time in your house. Very spacious, with everything that was needed and more, even Netflix. I would say that the photos in the website do not make justice to the house. It is much better than they appear The fact that it allowed dogs was a big plus and being 1 block away from the doggy beach was a treat. Will come back


Wonderful setting.


The house was stunning with everything you needed in the kitchen by way of pots n pans and utensils. It had a great set up with two living areas and a level lawn for the bocce games. My elderly mother enjoyed the easy access and extra handrails in different areas. The dog was more than happy. We have been holidaying in this area for over 40 years and will certainly return be returning here.


beatiful property


A great home away from home perfect for our mini poodle with leash free beach just minutes away.One of the best properties we have stayed at.


Perfect pet friendly holiday house


The house was set up beautifully for bringing your four legged friend on holiday with you. Plenty of space for the teenagers too with two very defined living and sleeping areas. We would definitely book again.
