This property styled like a modern 5 star resort, natural timber hardwood flooring and luxury inclusions. Open architectural living spaces overlook the private courtyard pool. A truly modern alfresco lifestyle. <BR><BR>There are only a few locations in Australia where rain-forest touches the beach, this house is uniquely positioned at Harry's Lookout at Shelly beach.

Management response:

Thank you very much for your review I am glad you enjoyed your vacation. I do sympathize with you about Tripadvisor's fees being very high and added to the bookings. This is probably why the majority of our bookings come from the folks on airBnb. Once again thank you for you kind words.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Beautiful house and amazing location, but I would not recommend staying here if you have children under the age of 3. The hard wood stairs are an accident waiting to happen (as we found out first hand) As is the banister on the second level.
Would have been nice if high chairs, portacots, and a child safety gate etc were provided.

Also found it a bit strange that we were provided with pantry essentials, but no garbage bags or toilet rolls.

We stayed during May, and it unfortunately rained 90% of the time so we could not use the outdoor bbq or swimming pool. Would have been lovely if the outdoor patio area was undercover and the pool could be heated.

Probably won't stay here again, but will definitely be back to Port Macquarie during the Summer months.

Management response:

Thank you for you review, it is a shame that the weather was poor for your stay and you could not make the most out of the beach and pool area. I understand how much attention young children need, with the potential for climbing on railings and playing on stairs. We do consider our house to be quite child friendly,...
