Absolutely beautiful, modern home equipped with everything you’d expect and more.

  • 5 of 5

Nest by the Sea completely blew us away the minute we entered the property. The design and layout of the house paired with the beautiful furniture and decor made us feel instantly at home. The location was ideal for a winter getaway as it was nestled in a beautiful residential area surrounded by other lovely homes. Having said that, it was not too far away from shops, restaurants and the beach making it a lovely spot for a summer holiday too. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nest by the Sea and can’t wait to go back soon! Thanks Michelle for a lovely long weekend at your beautiful accommodation.

Nest by the Sea was the perfect place for our girls weekend away! The property was very clean and well maintained. Our welcome basket of goodies was put to excellent use and was a lovely touch. We could not fault anything. We had an awesome weekend and created many new memories. When you stay, do yourself a favour and ring the doorbell, it is guaranteed to put a smile on your face!!!

Great location, great amenities, and a great price

  • 5 of 5

Nest by the Sea was the perfect house for our long weekend family getaway. The four bedrooms easily accommodated our group of seven adults and two children, and the walk in wardrobe in the master bedroom was perfect for our toddler’s portacot! The owner was easy to contact before our arrival, via email and phone, and met us at the property on arrival (even getting us in a bit early). The welcome hamper was much appreciated and contained lots of goodies to enjoy while we settled in (bread, milk, fruit, biscuits, etc) and there were plenty of other staples to get us through the weekend (tea & coffee, salt & pepper, cooking oil, laundry powder, etc). There were plenty of games, books and DVDs to enjoy. The local shopping centre was about a 10 minute walk away (Woollies, BWS, chemist, pizza, etc) and the kids enjoyed the nearby playground which was easily accessible through the rear gate. We visited White’s Beach which was unpatrolled for swimming but the huge expanse of sand was perfect for building castles and paddling at the water’s edge…if you are happy to share with dogs and seaweed. We’ve booked numerous holiday houses online over the past 10-15 years and we all commented that Nest by the Sea was among the best.
