We loved the little, comfortable house set in a beautiful garden. Sitting on the veranda with the view over the sheep-paddock and the surrounding native forest was so relaxing. In the morning and in the evening a wonderful bird-concert.
We hope to come again soon.
Over the years we have stayed in holiday accommodation up and down the coast from Tathra to Tuncurry and none have come close to Gull Cottage in terms of privacy, comfort, quietness, location, facilities and absolute relaxation. The cottage is exactly as described & photographed in the listing and was clean, fully furnished & well maintained. The private pool is a bonus, as is the fully fenced dog friendly yard. Our little dog had a great week at Shoalhaven Heads - it is only a short walk to the beach where there is a 24/7 off leash area for dogs (plus a cafe at the surf club for coffee, brunch, etc), pretty much all the river front is off leash and dogs are welcome in the beer garden at the pub where the bistro offers a variety of food. Less than 5 minute walk from the cottage to a newsagent, post office, take away, small grocery store, bottle shop, chemist, bakery, butcher, pizza shop & Chinese restaurant - no real need to drive anywhere. Plenty to do in the local area as well - good local wines, cafes & crafts etc at Berry, short drive along the coast to Geroa, Gerringong & Kiama - most places we visited allowed pets.
Gull Cottage and Shoalhaven Heads provided everything we needed for a relaxing week with our dog on the coast and we will certainly be returning in the future.
