We stayed here for 5 days and enjoyed every minute of it. The house has all you need from BBQ to pool table. You will not find a thing missing. It is real quiet and far from the main road so you wil not hear road noice. From the accommodation you can easily go to Forster to do some shopping but also go for a swim in the ocean.
The home owners are really nice people and very helpful. The accommodation has WIFI and when you send them an email they will reply fast.
I would like to say: This accommodation is as good as it gets.
Drive to the beaches: 15 minutes
Drive to Forster: 35 minutes
Drive to Seal Rock: 20 minutes
Over the years we have stayed at quite a few bush retreat holiday homes and can honestly say that Topi Gums has been our absolute favourite by far. We stayed for 8 nights and could easily have stayed another week.
The house is spacious, beautifully furnished and generously equipped with high quality items. The beds are also very comfortable. It was such a bonus for us to be able to take our little dog Charlie. He had a great time running around on the lawn and thoroughly enjoyed his walks every morning.
The owners, Yolanda and Philip, are lovely people and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Because of this the home had a beautiful energy about it. It was lovely to walk in and see the gift of a bottle of local wine sitting on the table, and cheese & crackers in the fridge. There were also some healthy dog treats for Charlie! How thoughtful!
It was so peaceful... lovely to sit on the deck looking out over the lake and listen to the sounds of nature in the silence. To have such complete privacy is wonderful. The bird life is amazing. My partner Rob is into bird photography and managed to take some great photos.
Seal Rocks isn't far away and we enjoyed a few visits to Boat Beach which is dog friendly.
We thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated our stay at Topi Gums and will definitely be visiting again.
This property has a peacefulness to it like no other. The house is large and comfortable and equipped with everything you need, it even had a games room with a ping pong table. You could relax by the lake, canoe or take a walk in nature. I left there feeling very relaxed. Loved it.
