Perfect family getaway

Graham Apolony

We had a whole family getaway including 3 kids (8mths to 2 yrs) and this house was perfect. It was exactly like it's pictures. It wasn't overly crowded with things, & we didn't have to move things to make the house child-proof. Having a baby gate at the top of the stairs, and a couple of high chairs available, was fabulous. The house had all we needed for a wet weekend in. A great kitchen, good parking, big TV, and the pool (despite the weather). Will happily stay again!


Can't wait to come back

Helen Ozdilek

Perfect is all I can say. Group of 8 girls and it was amazing. This house is huge and offered us plenty of space. The location is fabulous. Small shopping strip very close, beach just across the road, choices for food with the cheeky dog and Bannisters just up the road and the Sailing Club hidden away from view from the road. Coffee is good as is the view. We walked along the coast to Nelson Bay, stunning scenery. We also got The Bay Butler to supply us with meals which I would highly recommend.


Enjoyable getaway

Helen Mannix

Great size for family gathering, with the ability to have good seperate space apart. Pool had easy access for people with special needs and the older person. Good area for parking for all guests. Well stocked house with all kitchen needs catered for


Beautiful and exceptionally large property, perfect for big groups

Jade Allerby

We had an amazing stay at Dolphin Lagoon. The property is so much bigger than it looks in the pics and there was plenty of room for our whole family. The pool is great and having two kitchens was great when kids were up early. All the details have been thought of and the kitchens are very well stocked with everything you could need. The location is perfect with close access to the beach and not far from many local activities. We can't wait to return. It was the best family holiday we have had!
