Firstly, the location overlooking the water is absolutely stunning. Waking up each morning with a view of the inlet from the master bedroom was something we won't forget. Unfortunately for us the rain water tank ran out of water when we arrived so we couldn't conduct day to day water usage, but we had a temporary fix to assist with toilet flushing etc. Even though we had the watergate issue, the helpfulness of the owner and his manager helped us forget the shortfalls and focus on the beautiful location we were in. The house itself is very basic, but the views facing the water, large deck with BBQ, and uninterrupted walk to the shoreline more than made up for it. I'll summarize a few points below to assist with your decision if you are looking at staying here: Pros: - literally stones throw from waters edge - peaceful and somewhat secluded - large enough backyard for an event - recreational area under the house with table tennis is great for kids - deck is a good size for large BBQ get together Cons: - dated interior - have to pay $5 each way for vehicle ferry to property (can purchase a weekly pass to mitigate this) - no amenities on property side

My partner and our two dogs had a great holiday. We did nothing but swim, fish and a few drinks in the afternoon sun on the balcony. The house is basic but has everything you need and if it didn't the shops were only a few minutes drive (over the ferry). We can't wait to revisit and bring some friends to show them the area - I would recommend mozzie spray during the warm humid months as they loved me!

Loved it! Great location. We loved that the kids could just step outside and go fishing. We found it well appointed, clean and comfortable and we would stay again. We mainly dealt with Anthony and Nina and they were brilliant.

The thing that was most appreciated was Nina providing us with a weekly ticket for the ferry as we used a lot to visit a sick relative.

The house is very clean, well equipped and well presented. It is in a fabulous location fronting onto a reserve which runs along the edge of the Hastings River. Three good size bedrooms with double beds. Heaps of space. Great views. The two bicycles were much appreciated. We really enjoyed our week here.

Hi I'm Michael. I am a 44 year old male who loves the beach lifestyle.

As I do not reside near the property I have a neighbour we have known for a long time who manages the property. In saying that I want to get to know guest as best I can without being there - communication lines are always open to me as well as Anthony.

I want to create a holiday destination that people want to return to. I want to ensure you have everything you need to have a great self contained stay. Anything you need; help, items or a chat and a beer! That's River View Cottage.
