Cuddles Cottage, 4 Christmas Bush Avenue - pet friendly holiday house near Dutchies

Holiday home in Nelson Bay
Cuddles Cottage is a short walk down to Dutchies beach where you can stroll along the sand or watch the kids play at the park or have a go at Stand Up Paddle Boarding. Only a quick 12 minute walk on the Bartlett Cycleway to Bagnall Beach Off-Leash Dog Exercise area or 10 minute walk  along the bridal pathway into the heart of Nelson Bay CBD and d'Albora Marina, both of these pathways are perfect for children as well.

The layout of the home makes it an ideal choice for families or couples as the main bedroom with ensuite is located off the sunroom area and the other two bedrooms are located at the opposite end of the home.  The three way bathroom is perfect for everyone to use with the shower and bath in one room, vanity area in the open space and seperate toilet. 

Cuddles Cottage has so much to offer including a comfortable living area with ceiling fans to cool the house in Summer and gas heating to warm the house in Winter and timber floorboards throughout. An extra large sun room with table tennis and a great sized enclosed backyard with a raised fence made from wire balustrade to deter dogs from jumping the fence.

Imagine having the opportunity to sit back and relax whilst cooking up a storm on the gas BBQ and enjoying watching your children and pets play and run around,  this will be certain to become a favourite for families.

Please note pets must remain outside only.

Sheets and towels are not provided at the property, you have the option to either hire or bring these with you and no party policy in place.

handy to everything
all good,nice and relaxing

5/5 Excellent

Good location
We enjoyed our stay. I didn’t realise that I was going to have to step down from the dining room into the sunroom then back up into my bedroom ... not the greatest for 74 yr old knees! The laundry light has something weird going on with it. Otherwise everything was as described in the listing and suitable for our needs.

4/5 Good

Cuddles Cottage holiday
We have stayed at Cuddles Cottage before. The location is good and it’s dog friendly which is important for us. The standard of the accommodation is very good. We did have problems with some aspects of the cleaning when we arrived but overall we had very enjoyable holiday and would definitely stay there again.

5/5 Excellent

Already want to come back to stay
Stayed 3 nights with four adults and one dog. We absolutely loved our stay, the house is spotless, the beds were comfy, everything worked (didn't use the dishwasher or laundry but assume they are perfectly functional). Location was ideal. Neighbourhood quiet. Communication with renting agency was always pleasant and easy. Key collection and drop off easy. The house had absolutely everything we needed (we took our own linen). Would 100% stay here again.

5/5 Excellent

Walking distance to beaches and marina. Ideal!
A very neat and tidy home, that was perfect for us and our fur-kids. A beautiful breeze flowed through the house and whilst no a/c the fans did a great job. Thank you!
