Secret garden is located very close to beach. House is a bit old, but very nice and clean. Our stay was very comfortable. It has everything you would need - washing machine, dish washer, bbq, coffee machine, utensils. We enjoyed our stay!

Great spot to hear the waves

Kate N - 25th September 2022

Great spot, quick walk to the beach and into town. Good sized yard and secure enough for dogs.

Terrific Stay

Edward R - 3rd August 2022

I stayed in this house for a month in the middle of winter and loved it. Two minutes walk to the beach and an easy walk to the shops. There's an outdoor deck that the sun reached late morning, and a lovely garden to look out onto. Electric blankets on the beds kept me warm at night, and the gas heater was very effective in the lounge area. Kitchen had everything I needed to cook my meals, and the bathroom was perfect. Had a great time, and would love to come back during the warmer months one day

Great location..

Reema G - 20th April 2022

The property was filthy upon check in. Lounge was very uncomfortable- beds were ok. The renovated bathroom was the nicest room in the whole house. The property needs some TLC

Wonderful and relaxing

Christel K - 9th October 2021

Had a lovely stay here, the dog loved it too. Close to the shops and beach.

Yvonne Fagan - 18th May 2021

Good accommodation close to town and a very easy walk to the beach to take the dogs for a run. Driveway narrow, so watch those bigger vehicles and it is also unsealed. As we experienced lots of rain the driveway did become muddy and slippery.

Niamh Corkery - 23rd March 2021

Great house in a great location. The house is very well provisioned and the garden includes a lovely outdoor seating area which we enjoyed most evenings. And we loved the Irish touches. We will be back!

Lahne Scrivener - 8th March 2021

amazing place !! great location, comfortable and so close to the beach !!

Franka TucheltKLB - 3rd February 2021

We had a great time at the Secret Garden. The house was perfect and hat everything we needed for a relaxing weekend. The kitchen is well equipped, lovely outdoor seating area with ocean view and we were surprised to find a trundle / triple bunk bed (other than in the pictures). Walking distance into town and the beach so close, perfect getaway!

Ed Fuller - 29th September 2020

Beautiful home near the beach and short walk into town. Was a great holiday get away and much needed break. Garden at the property was gorgeous and all amenities and utilities were great!

Wonderful, Relaxing Holiday

Ed F - 29th September 2020

Our stay at The Secret Garden was perfect for our long weekend get-away. A stones throw away from the beach, it was great having the flexibility and ease of going to the beach or into town. The house was very well equipped with very comfy beds, an array of kitchen utilities to cook at home and a lovely back yard, literally a Secret Garden. The creek next door meant we could constantly hear the soft trickle of water as well as the crashing waves of the beach. Good not have been any better!!

Love this place!

sheila j - 24th September 2020

Such a cosy comfortable place to stay and so near the beach and town.Great for my dog with an enclosed garden at the back with plenty of bushes and trees for her to sniff! Love watching the wattle birds feeding on the Grevillea and listening to the ocean while sitting out on the deck.The kitchen has everything you need and there are plenty of books, games DVDS and Smart Tv to keep you entertained on a wet day Highly recommend this place, it is my favourite place to stay in the bay!

Such a nice town, such a beautiful house. Would recommend for anyone wanting a house that feels welcoming. Board games were great

Beautiful and Relaxing

RyanR - 29th November 2019

Such a wonderful place to stay. Well equipped and easy with a toddler. Thank you for letting us have a wonderful holiday near the beach!

Awesome 60's vibe!

Laura - 16th July 2019

Loved the furniture and decor. The layout of the house is great; such a homely and inviting space. The kitchen is well equipped with a huge array of utensils. Location is unbeatable! Front and back gardens are lovely. It is a little cold in winter (heaters do not generate a lot of heat) and the mattress was a little uncomfortable. Otherwise a great little place!

Good location and nice house

Denise - 14th November 2018

Cute little 3 bedroom house - renovated kitchen and bathroom - very clean with mid century furniture - house has a nice feel about it - kitchen very well stocked (cooks kitchen) and has a large deck and BBQ out the back - 1 block from the beach. Would stay there again - only downside is the solo bathroom

Hidden gem

Jacs - 29th September 2018

Great, comfortable house for a family getaway in amongst a beautiful private garden setting!
