A great house with an informal surfer vibe. Well equipped kitchen. High quality beds and linen. Right across from a great beach. Set up for little kids including high chair. You have to wait a minute to cross the road to the beach, but that is because Australian beaches are public, with no houses on them. A great thing. Richie was very helpful. Including great fish-and-chips recommendation.

Great location for beach, shops and other activities. Mattresses and linen high quality. Well equipped and clean. Picking up keys system is simple. Loved the back verandah on hot days after beach time, and the 'lookout' was perfect in the evening for sunsets.

We stayed at Richie's McCrae house with friends for two nights in early May and only have praise for our short weekend away :) The house was amazing and perfect for hosting the large group that we were. Clean and very comfortable (especially the beds) with plenty of space, the place had a fun, friendly atmosphere and was complete with wonderful views. It’s also located just across the road from the beach and a short 15/20 minute walk from shops. Photos and description of the listing are accurate. Richie himself was a great host. Friendly and communicative, he provided any information we required, as well as giving some good tips on the area! I can strongly recommend this house to anyone looking for a nice place on the peninsula to spend time with family and friends. Would definitely love to stay here again. Thanks, Richie!

Richie User ProfileRichie is a superhost.

Family of 5 (3 kids) love to travel. Have 2 great holiday homes we take great pride in looking after and renovated. Super super places.

We love the outdoors including beaches, Wakeboarding and water sports, DirtBike riding, Snowboarding and skiing and more. Our properties are super kid friendly with PS3, boardgames and movies etc... Plenty to keep them occupied.

Due to work we need remote access so internet is a priority.

We love to cook so equally as important to us is the kitchen setup and crockery etc... We use always great quality utensils, crockery and pots/pans etc...


And the most important is cable-TV, open fireplaces and of course the most comfortable beds we can provide!
