Great for families and dogs
Fantastic house - great for a stay with teenagers and dogs. Very large fully fenced yard for furry friends to run around in. Everything you want is provided at the house - two living areas provide ample room to relax. Close to the beach - just a couple of minutes' walk. Despite no air conditioning or ceiling fans, the house gets a good cross-breeze. We had a fantastic holiday and would highly recommend this house.
Instant relaxation and enjoyment!
Summer Loving at Culburra gave us a feeling of relaxation, peace, joy and of being at home the minute we walked in. It was a perfect size in a perfect location and had everything we needed and more! A lot of thought, love and care has obviously gone into preparing this property. We really appreciated the attention to detail and all the ‘little extra things’ that made our stay so easy and enjoyable. We hope to be back!
Everything you need
A complete cosy home 5 minutes walk from a lovely long beach.
Fantastic stay with kids. Close to beach
Very well maintained property (with lots of beachy stuff like shells, oars that creates a great ambiance) with almost every convenience you can think of. Lots of games in the den at the back including table tennis, darts, badminton and board games. The kitchen is very well stocked and convenient. The house has 2 TVs, Gaming device and other bells and whistles. I think these aspects are under-marketed in the description.
Just a couple of minor things for the owners to look into:
* there were some small ants in the kitchen and bathroom areas which a pest control may take care of
* there was a small water leak in the kitchen from around the dishwasher. We just wiped off with kitchen towels
* The gate had an issue when we returned from outside where like the child-lock thing didn’t work well and we were stuck outside for about 20 minutes. We called the owners and they immediately answered and triedl to talk us through it but didn’t help.
* the location of the key safe is not easy to locate when you come here in the dark. Though this may be by design (to avoid unauthorised access to the property) it can be a bit of an annoyance when people have driven 3-4 hours and just want to get in. A small map of the location may help.
Having made these minor observations, the property is still fantastic and that does not change from the 5-Star rating I have given them. The owners are fantastic and answer the phone and guide you whenever required. We will come back here again.
Many thanks for staying at Summer Loving and posting your 5 star rating. We're very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the special late check out offered to you to extend your long weekend. Regarding "some small ants", rest assured, we pest control annually, however given we are surrounded by beautiful national parks and bushland, nature sometimes has a will of it's own. Our property manager has also since inspected the dishwasher and was unable to find any leaks in the kitchen. They also inspected the front gate pool lock and confirmed that the mechanism was broken due to improper use (i.e. was twisted off rather than simply lifting upwards like most pool gates). As you say, the key safe has been positioned to prevent unauthorised access and until now has been easily found even late at night. Therefore, we haven't been asked to provide a map but happy to provide this in future, so thank you for the suggestion. We value all constructive feedback as we continually strive to provide our guests with the most enjoyable experience possible.
All the best, Dayna
Loving the Summer Loving property
Great stay and great house. Love that there is two areas to hang out and the deck was great for eating. Our Schnauzer loved running around the yard. Dayna was a great host and communication was easy and letting us know that we could arrive early and stay a bit later if we wished. Would love to stay again.
Perfect Holiday Home
We had such a brilliant time staying at the Summer Loving, there are great facilities and more than enough room for our group of 7. The games room was a massive winner, added so much more to our weekend!
