“Perfect family getaway to explore the Central Coast.”
Reviewed 4 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

My Sister-in-law and her family and our family stayed here for 4 nights while exploring the Central Coast. With 3 bedrooms and the living room there was ample room for the 2 families with 2 toddlers. The air-conditioning was great! Entering the house, on first arrival, cannot be simpler. But the part that we liked best was the location. We were a 5 minute walk from a Children's park, 15 minute drive from the zoo (children can feed animals), an hours drive to Warner's Bay (cycle along the lake with the children) and Nobby Beach (Newcastle) and about 30 minutes to Pokolbin (where the kids can ride horses).

We also had the pleasure to meet Susan. An extremely lovely person. Thank you, Susan for your hospitality. We know where we will be staying the next time we go up the Coast.

“Great Holiday House!”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I stayed here with my extended family and it was perfect for all of us! There was ample space, with both a Kitchen/Living Area and a separate Living Room which came in handy when the kids were asleep on the sofa lounge in the Kitchen/Living Area room. Everything was clean and I would definitely stay here again when I come back to this lovely region!

“Very enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 12 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We enjoyed our stay at House on the Hill; the beds were comfortable, each room had an overhead fan; the kitchen had sufficient supplies (plates, etc); internet worked well. We had a rental car so we had no difficulty finding the place. The location was in a very quiet neighbourhood.
