I’ll cut to the chase. I’ve just spent a long weekend in Sussex Inlet on the south coast of New South Wales. I went there with my other half and two lots of friends, six adults in all. My friend made a booking online and I didn’t really know what to expect. I wasn’t expecting anything too swish to be honest. However from the moment we stepped into the house we were blown away by the accommodation. It turned out to be the most gorgeous holiday home I’ve ever stayed in. And here’s why. Take 90 seconds to see for yourself and then read on:
The property is owned by the two Terrys – Terry and Terry, a husband and wife team. The warmth of the welcome is evident the moment we step into the house. The two Terrys showed us around and told us where we could find everything we needed, what restaurants were worth a visit and all the activities we could enjoy over the weekend. The property, Terry’s Waterfront Retreat, is a five bedroom house which includes three Queen sized bedrooms all with ensuites. As well as the formal dining room, there is a spacious kitchen diner, enclosed sunroom with dining table and outside patio dining in the bbq area next to the pool.
I got the impression one of the Terrys might have come from an Interior Design background because every room in the house was simply a pleasure to relax in and had a beautiful creative thread running throughout the house.
Leave your stresses at the door and chillax. Board games supplied – we enjoyed the game Mid-Life Crisis which is very apt given the name of this blog! There is also an ample supply of DVDs for visitors to enjoy.
We slept so soundly in this bed – no early starts for us on this weekend away.
Did I mention the pool which is surrounded by lush vegetation?
Once you’ve had a dip, there is a little nook where you can enjoy a coffee or drink nestled in the surrounding vegetation.
The property is situated right on the Inlet with the back garden leading down to a private jetty. We found a mother and baby Roo there relaxing in the sunshine.
Once the roos had moved on I managed to get a piccie of the jetty and the crystal clear waters of the inlet.
You can swim, fish, hire a boat or use the canoe which is free for visitors to use during their stay.
How often do holiday lets get a big thumbs up and a five star rating and I’ve only just seen this. If you need to unwind and get away from the frenetic pace of city life. I couldn’t think of a nicer place to stay.
But finally before you do that, I almost don’t want to tell you this. Terry and Terry are looking to sell this property as we found out this weekend. The property includes all furniture and bookings up until the end of the year. I really hope the new owners keep it as holiday accommodation so we can go there again and again. It’s only 3 hours from Sydney or Melbourne. So if you or anyone you know is in the market for an investment property, or holiday retreat, then this property is what dreams are made of. It comes fully furnished so all you have to do is walk in and put your feet up or dive into that refreshing pool.
Go on – treat yourself.
