Beautiful home! Check-in communication was exceptional. We fell in love with this beautiful home, the area and Hyams beach. Hyams beach is only a short drive away. As we were there in Winter, we enjoyed the fireplace (which had plenty of firewood) and the endless amount of board games! We truly had a relaxing weekend. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. We hope to be back soon!

This was my first booking through Air B'n'B and it was a very easy and pleasant experience. The house is in a great location close to gorgeous beaches and a short drive from shops. We saw heaps of kangaroos and birds while there which is always a plus. Great place for family holidays. Our three year old loved the kids bedroom with all the toys.

A pleasure Sabine that you and your family enjoyed the stay, enjoyed the kangaroos and your little one enjoyed the toys as well! Please come again. You are now an airbnb veteran!

Very clean and quiet. Perfect base when holidaying in Jervis bay. Close to shops and beaches and the local wildlife is an added bonus!!

Great place to stay. Kangaroos everywhere just as pictured. Just a heads up, the owners are very hard working people who wake up at 5am everyday for work. So try not to contact them (not even text message) after hours unless if it's an emergency. Would recommend this accomodation to everyone!

Response from Therese:
Ah yes, we pride ourselves on hard work and our 5 Star AirBnB rating for excellent communication. We take lots of calls outside of hours, just were not expecting your text at 15 minutes before midnight asking about the beautiful whale watching Jervis Bay offers. Not a problem - all sorted next day when we shared information, and you great that you had a nice day on the water, saw the kangaroos and enjoyed your trip up from Melbourne. Thanks Tony.

Therese and Geof were wonderful hosts and we loved staying at their beautiful Bush & Bay Cottage. To be greeted by a family of Kangaroos on arrival was extra special, especially as I had my friend visiting from the USA! Everything was clean and well equipped plus amazingly located for the surrounding beaches. We especially loved Hymas Beach and spent our whole Saturday there before coming back to fire up the BBQ. Can't wait to stay again and we'd highly recommend staying out Therese and Geoff's fantastic cottage again :)

We had such a fantastic stay at the Bush and Bay Cottage. The property was as described, clean and tidy, spacious but cosy and the location was perfect for a quiet weekend getaway. We particularly enjoyed relaxing on the hammocks and in front of the fire as it got cooler in the evening. Therese and Geoff were very accomodating, available via telephone if we needed anything and gave easy directions to get to the property. My friends and I want to come back again next year as it was such a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of Sydney and only a couple off hours drive.

My uncle visiting from overseas, said our stay at the Cottage was easily the best part of his trip (he now plans to buy a hammock), and together with my mother, marvelled at how perfectly designed a house it was. Therese was wonderfully accomodating to our requests, and everyone had a great time - it's an area where wildlife truly abounds. I was especially delighted with the stash of toys my toddler was able to enjoy.

Response from Therese:
A real pleasure Judy. We love it when overseas relatives come too, and see the wildlife.

With my husband Geoff and two children, we have made Jervis Bay our second home and enjoy spending numerous times each year relaxing at Bush & Bay Cottage. My favourite time is my daily walk along Hyams Beach just a five minute drive away, along the world famous white sands, with little signs of civilisation. Most of the time we are back in Sydney, which is when our guests get to use the Cottage exclusively, and hopefully enjoy nature as much as we do.
