We've just returned from a 3 night week end getaway @ O'Carrollyns and would highly recommend this retreat. I'm sure O'Carrollyn's is not for all - if you are looking for a fancy hotel with all the facilities and a homogenised look and feel then stay at the Mantra or something of that ilk. If you want to stay in a beautiful, tranquil natural bushland environment you cannot beat this. There are a small number of Bungalows well spaced apart on this large tract of land with communal areas if you want to BBQ etc. The Bungalows are basic though spacious and comfortable. One Mile beach is a short walk across the way and it is a short drive to Stockton Sand Dunes, shopping centre close by. We were also very fortunate to have a wonderful Koala spotting as it was crossing a quiet road nearby. The other bonus and why we chose this place in the first place was it is dog friendly - it was great being able to bring the pooches with us and they had the best time.
