Cosy Pet Friendly Beach Getaway
Cosy welcoming property with a generous backyard, great decks with sea views and a virtually private beach! It was wonderful we could have our dog with us too. Great communication from our host. Would stay again. 🙂🙂🙂

Melbourne Cup Weekend
We stayed down at Newhaven over the Melbourne Cup Weekend. The house was cute and very clean. The kids loved that there was an upstairs section of the house. The yard was huge. The short stroll to the beach was a nice adventure each day for a morning or after night stroll along the beach. The kids loved looking for shells. Fantastic communication with the owner all weekend due to the unlucky event of losing power, just prior to our arrival, for the whole weekend. Despite this, we still had a great time in the house. The kids thought it was fun to be using lanterns each night for light. Beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room in the shared areas - lounge and dining room etc. It was nice to walk onto the upstairs deck each morning and look out at the water. Thank you for a great house to stay in Sandy. We had a fantastic time.

3/5 Okay

Disappointed & not good value for money
Contacted the owners privately about our concerns of the property along with photos. Writing review as I would have liked this information before booking. It's very difficult with Covid situation but level of cleanliness should not be overlooked and there were some dangers.This included very dirty dishes covered in grease from previous guests & frypan with dried up egg on it (owners report there were no tenants in there for awhile so this made the thought even worse). Cutlery draw was filthy. We scrubbed all the cutlery and plates we would use and kept it seperate for our stay. Under the beds was really dirty. The light in the kitchen was unusable as it rained most of the time we were there and water was dripping from the light. The gas wood heater didn't work the first night as the gas bottles were empty. The owner had them replaced so it was working the second night and was lovely. House is surrounded closely by other properties so the back view image is deceiving and I wouldn't use word modern in listing title. On the plus side, beach access is so great and lots of space for pets. Our daughter loved having upstairs to herself. Would be great in summer with 2 deck areas. After all this, we would go back if cleanliness was maintained and the price per night was reduced.
