Had a lovely mini-holiday at Ghost Gum Cottage. The house is close to the beach and local shops, the place is stocked with the essentials and its super cosy when the fire gets going. David was a very accommodating host. We will definitely be back.
We didn't get to meet David, however communication was fantastic and everything went very smoothly. The house itself was amazing - clean, spacious, amazing location and fantastic value. The kitchen had everything we could have possibly needed (including a coffee machine) and between the fire and the big north facing windows the house was always warm and cosy. The only thing to note is that the third bed is a sofa bed which could be annoying if you were staying for a while, but it was perfectly comfortable for two nights. Would definitely recommend, cheers David!
We really enjoyed our stay at Ghost Gum Cottage! The photos are very representative of the house and it's located in a convenient spot in Bawley Point, close to cafes and shops, and the beach.
The house was well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The weather was chilly, but the wood-fire heater did a great job of warming up the house (and wood was provided), and the afternoon sun helped as well. The king sized bed is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in and was exceptionally warm for such cold nights!
We have no complaints at all, David was very responsive to all our communication and we were really able to relax during our stay. We'll certainly be looking to stay here again.
The Ghost Gum Cottage is a fantastic winter retreat. Close to the beach, completely north facing and great wood heater. We would definitely book this one again.
Lovely stay! Thank you. What a pretty spot with lots of sunshine streaming into the living areas. We were a party of 4 adults, 1 x 4 year old and a crawling 1 year old and 2 small dogs. Everyone loved the beach- we almost had it to ourselves. Playground and cafe close by were fantastic. The house had everything we needed. We just had to keep an eye on the crawler near the stairs - as we do at home! Plenty of room in the main bedroom for our porta cot.The 4 year old wanted to stay longer! We will return to Bawley.
Excellent host who was quick to respond. Beautiful house and well equipped with all the essentials. Extremely comfortable beds. Lovely spot, highly recommend!
David is a great host who is very fast with his response to email requests. House is very clean, with super comfortable beds. Love the cutlery with pantry and fridge stocked with essential items.
The house is close to the beach and to bush walking trails.
We had a wonderful weekend. Thanks David :)
