This is not 5 star luxury - so if that's what you prefer, this is not for you. If you enjoy the sound of frogs, crickets, owls and other creatures - this is the place for you. We spent 2 nights and really enjoyed them. Everything was clean, the bathroom and kitchen were both good. Yes, there were spider webs... More

Lovely staff, lovely location! My partner and I stayed in a 'Jacuzzi Bungalow'. Well stocked kitchen, clean and well presented. Comfy beds and couch! The private outside area was cute, the pond was really tranquil feeling with tadpoles and at night (slightly noisy) frogs! It was great. The day bed looked a bit old, the jacuzzi was fabulous!

Attended this place as part of a very large group for a wedding which was held on site. The new owners have done a great job here, with some modernisation to amenities such as a huge undercover area where our reception was held. Really good stuff. The 2 story cabins are noted for 6, however up to 15 could be... More

What a lovely couple & brilliant retreat. We stayed 4 nights & loved sleeping to the sound of the waves. The koalas, possums & stick insects were cute. Highly recommended 👣👣👣👣👣👣👣👣 ( trip advisor wanted 2oo chars though. Can't offer any support for them)

At a price of $300 per night for a jacuzzi bungalow, my husband, I and our two small dogs stayed at the 'pet friendly' Oasis. I was shocked when we entered the bungalow by the kitchen, bathroom and general uncleanliness of the accommodation. The bathroom resembled that of a youth hostel (desperately requires an upgrade), there are cobwebs everywhere, the... More

Great little cabins nestled right in amongst the paperbark trees, Jacuzzi was nice listening to the native birds while soaking having a wine. A few creepy crawlies around and a twilight barrage of mozzies. But bring the insect repellent a bottle of wine and you have a relaxing chilled out little get away

So sorry to hear that your visit wasn't memorable like our other guests. I do apologize for not being at my desk but at that time I was visiting the toilet.

My family has visited this unique location for several years now. We stay in the Nelson Bay area given its proximity to Sydney. With young children the location is fantastic, very close to the beach.

“Choose a bungalow to suit your own needs, all bungalows are on a loop road and face the central pond and group kitchen/function area. It would be quite noisy if you were there at the same time as a wedding reception!”

“Travel Tip: If you are using a Navman try putting in the suburb as Boat Harbour. To get to O'Carrolyns, you enter Koala Place from Gan Gan road off the same roundabout as Blanch Street. So if you can't find Koala Place in your Navman put in Blanch street and it will get you there.”
