The Space

(" If you haven't time to read this..."CUT TO THE CHASE" AND JUST READ THE INDEPENDENT REVIEWS...much quicker..!!! )

All crockery and cutlery supplied. Basic start up items supplied (coffee, tea , sugar, milk, bread, butter etc.)
Outdoor entertainers' deck with table and chairs (seats 8), 6 gas hooded burner BBQ.

The area surrounding Scotts Head ( Nambucca Vally) is rated by the CSIRO as the most liveable climate in Australia. Being Sub tropical / Temperate the coast also benefits from the warm East Coast current that runs south from Queensland giving Summer water temps. of 20 to 24 degs celsius.
The house is surrounded on three sides by native bush, a small creek runs just metres from the house (so do the kangaroos..!). great mix of bird life and absolute privacy for sun bathing.

Scotts Head is primarly a beach side village (pop. 800) with a small supermarket, take away/coffee shop, baker, butcher, liquor store, Chemist and a fabulous restaurant (Taverna 6) featuring Greek / Aust. Fusion style cuisine at very reasonable prices. It's also Sydney Morning Herald "Good Food Guide" rated.
All the village shops are about a 5 min walk from the house. Closest major town is Macksville (pop. 7000) situated 15min by road. Nearest airport is Coffs Harbour (55min) with flights to and from all Australian capital cities.

Major activities include surfing, fishing, snorkelling, river canoeing, bush walking, bird watching, whale and dolphin watching, or just doing nothing!

Relaxed coastal lifestyle (everybody waves to each other!). Not very far from civilisation.....but far enough. The house is very nice, very comfortable and very open, but it's the location that makes all the differance.....

Do a (website hidden) Maps satellite , you'll see what I mean...Australia's best kept secret...shh...don't tell anyone!

  • I thought I would get in before the crowd for Mother's Day and treated my mother to an early Mothers Day week at Toms Modern Bungalow..
    On arrival we were greeted by this lovely freestanding bungalow with amazing surroundings.
    We had a slight technical hiccup with the internet, but it was resolved within 12 hours and we couldn't have done it without Toms prompt communication. Tom was such a pleasure to deal with :-)
    The Bungalow has everything you need if you were to stay for months on end, virtually a plug and play environment.
    We look forward to many more stays and we cannot wait to escape the hustle and bustle of Sydney for a relaxing carefree Bungalow.
    Cheers Tom..

  • Tom's home is a gem. Very private, but spacious and open - a perfect place to unwind, relax, and do . . . . absolutely nothing!! It was fantastic to open up the master bedroom doors and watch/listen to all the birds in the mornings. As other reviews have stated, the house is bigger than it looks in the photographs. Scott's head itself is a sleepy place the world seems to have forgotten - at times we could've sworn we were back in the 1960's. We even had the beach to ourselves one evening.

  • We stayed at Tom's place over the Christmas ,new year period and had one the most relaxing ,invigorating holidays ever.
    When we first arrived we were totally stunned the house is amazing ,the picture on airbnb do not show how spacious modern and refreshing the layout is.
    The house is equipt with everything your could ever need,with the added advantage of being all top quality and sleeping in the main bedroom with the doors open listening to bush noises and the clear sky was heavenly.
    Did not need to contact Tom as everything was in place ( all the numbers for Tom and his brother were there quest in case )
    We use Airbnb for all our holidays and this one is at the top of our list

  • We had a fabulous stay over the Christmas period. Tom was very helpful and prompt with any communication, he is a genuinely nice guy. The house and garden are gorgeous and we even got a visit from a little kangaroo. Scotts Head is very quite but that was exactly what we were looking for, we even had Little Beach to ourselves one day! I would recommend staying at Tom's house if you want some peace and quite with beautiful surroundings and a first class host. Thanks Tom :)

  • I spent four weeks in this beautiful light-filled home in Scotts Head that overlooks the bushland and happily recommend it to anyone. My only regret is that I was so busy working while I was there I didn't have time to fully explore the incredible surrounds of Scotts Head - there's so much to do: surfing, bush walking, scuba diving. And the coffee and cuisine at Cafe Cruz Yunabunga Cafe are deeelicious. I will definitely be back.

  • We had a great time in Scotts Head. Tom's place was very comfortable and a lovely place to have a relaxing stay at the beach. There was some beautiful local seafood in the area and the houses open plan layout meant we could enjoy our meals at home at night. Tom was prompt with communication and gave us detailed information about the local area. Cant wait to come back next time!

  • We loved our one week stay at Tom's place. The house is modern and well designed and we had a wonderfully relaxing time enjoying the cool breezes that filled the living areas of the house. Perfect for holiday reading (and a little midday dozing!). The yard was great for our kids to play in and waking up to the bush was a great way to start the days. We ate in every night as the kitchen was such a great place for a chat while preparing meals. Tom was prompt and clear in his communication and just a super helpful and friendly guy to deal with. He really made sure we were well set up and comfortable. Finally, Scotts Head is a great place with the choice of a couple of beautiful beaches and a nice little bunch of shops selling everything you need.

  • Tom is a great guy with an awsome place.
    He went above and beyond to make sure that my family had a relaxing stay and was most accomadating and understanding.
    Right now im missing Scotts head no end and cant think of anything bad about our experience at all.

  • If you are looking for a perfectly secluded beach home, this is the ideal place to stay. The home is bright and airy so we felt like we were always outdoors. Tom is a very genuine and friendly host and we felt privileged that he not only shared his home with us, but also took time to point out all the best spots to enjoy at Scotts Head. His communication was always prompt and reassuring. Highly recommended.

I didn't really find it much fun....
I've lost interest in it...
Living on the South Pacific Coast in Australia is pretty relaxed, so that's contaegious. Enjoy doing anything outdoors. Reading, movies and cooking with wine (sometimes I actually add it to the food) if I'm stuck indoors. Traveled most places. Europe, Scandinavia, Asia,Pacific- Australasia, Southern Africa and North America....that leaves South America & North Africa to go...can't wait. My major hobby / recreationis Race and Tarmac Rally Driving which can be a nice change of pace from the peace and tranquility of " Frog Hollow" in Scotts Head. All up, I'd have to say that I have a pretty curious nature that tries to see the funny/stupid side of most things. Dislikes..?............ Very small savage dogs...........and cooking without wine...!
