Great little spot. Everything you need is here and the location is very handy, especially if you travel by car (close to amenities & highway but still in a peaceful area). The space is very clean and thoughtful little extras are provided. Sandra seems very nice and Derek is a friendly, easy going guy. They both made me feel welcome and it was great to have my own self-contained space.
This Fully equipped 1 bedroom is clean and bed comfortable. The location is convenient to the Central Coast. Good strong wi fi signal. The host, Derek was helpful and extremely knowledgeable of the area. Great Value.
A cosy and peaceful home-away-from-home, surrounded by the garden and sounds of birds and chickens, it feels like you are far from the busy city, yet still having access to Sydney by public transport - the best of both worlds! And very good value for money compared with a hotel in the city.The flat is well-equipped with a fully-functional kitchen, washing machine, etc, there's even a sauna in the garage which you can use. Derek was a kind and helpful host, he picked me up at the station, and it was such a treat to cook with fresh herbs from his garden and freshly-laid eggs from his hens, thank you! :)
The apartment was great. It had everything we needed for our stay and was very comfortable. Having a washing machine was a big plus for us, the kitchen was stocked with condiments tea/coffee etc which was also great. The location was perfect for us as we were traveling around the central coast and it is in a nice safe neighbourhood. Derek was friendly and was around if we needed anything. we especially loved the chickens running around and their eggs! Also a great garden if you like birds as lots visits daily! We would stay again.
Fantastic stay for us both. Loved the surroundings of nature and got totally hooked on Netflix! We've nicknamed Derek the "Wildlife Whisperer" for his amazing connection with the local wildlife which we were personally privelidged to witness. Friendly hosts, perfect accommodation and true relaxed atmosphere. Hope to be back again soon.
Derek was a great host. He was very flexible with check in time and the apartment was clean on arrival with some essentials in the fridge (tea/coffee and fresh eggs). Derek made us feel at home straight away and was always available to give advice about the surrounding area and show us some of the local wildlife. I would recommend staying in point Clare to anyone. We had a great time and in Derek we made a new friend.
Great value, good location and a well set up apartment with everything you need. Would stay again!
Derek is a great host and the apartment is perfect for a get away or longer stay. Everything you need! Bed is really comfy had a great night sleep!
Derek's place is amazing value for money. We stayed there for a week over the Christmas period, and were very comfortable. Derek is a pleasant and generous host, and the location was perfect for us, with family at opposite ends of the Central Coast.
Our stay couldn’t have been nicer. The apartment is very comfortable. Other reviews have praised the comfort of the bed, and they’re right on. The kitchen has everything you need, and you can keep it stocked from the grocery store that’s an easy walk away.
The location is great. Besides the store and nearby shops, there are a couple bus lines nearby – one’s a five-minute walk down the hill and the other is just around the corner, less than a minute away. We found the bus system very easy to use, and the connecting bus dropped us off right in front of the beach. There are also some nice walks just down the hill by the water, and there's even nature right outside the apartment door. Aside from Derek’s hilarious lorikeet and their busy chickens, we were visited by king parrots, a kookaburra, a rosella (that I just missed), sulphur-crested cockatoos, and many other birds I've never seen before. Ok, I know some of you Aussies are thinking that cockatoos are pests, but we’re American, and cockatoos are pets there, so it’s cool to see them flying around.
Derek and Sandra give you all the privacy you want, but they’re around if you need something or want some info about the area. They’re like your cool upstairs neighbors. They even threw in some nice surprises for us!
For any future trips, we wouldn't stay anywhere else in the area.
