The glam tent was beautiful and presented really well. We loved that someone had turned, lights, heater and tv on for us and the additional welcome email was a nice touch - it was welcoming. Would be ideal if bathroom included a toilet, though it isn’t far to walk it was challenging at times, especially in the middle of the cold night. Extra lighting on the deck would be great too, we were worried about stepping on the possums haha and it was difficult to eat on the deck at night.

We so appreciate you sharing this review and are thrilled you felt as welcomed as we strive to make you feel! We are working on getting some new toilets into those Glam Tents soon so those cold night adventures will be a thing of the past although you're right those possums will miss you! Hopefully we get the pleasure of another visit from you soon.

We stayed 5 nights there with children ranging from 3 to 9. Loved the pool and the beach was walking distance. Have nice eating places walking distance as well. You can venture out to Nelson bay and Shoal bay only about 20 minute drive but a nice scenic drive. Overall loved it all and very reasonably priced would definitely stay again!!!

The 2 bedroom villa sunset that we stayed in was lovely. The place was clean and the view was beautiful sunset. It was very relaxing and quiet. The staff were amazing and so lovely always greeting and smiling and helpful. The only thing I was not happy with was the sofa bed, you could feel the springs into your back which was very uncomfortable. Other than that the place was lovely.
