Dog friendly

Hi lovely to be so close to the dog beach but hose on property to wash dog was in front yard (not gated) and had NO water pressure and very loud hammering so I was worried to use it that I was causing damage to the pipes! Also the showers at the property had terrible water pressure. Had to run around in the shower to get wet. No bin on kitchen rubbish - not good with dogs. Sharp knives were stored in same drawer as regular utensils, bit dangerous. House was average. Would not rebook.

Cosy cottage across the road from the beach

What a gorgeous little cottage. Lots of space, a huge back yard, fully fenced. We felt so comfortable here, the kitchen is well stocked and the bedrooms were spacious and airy. The house is older but still really comfortable. I did ask several times before our arrival date if linen was supplied, and each time was told yes. However, when we arrived we found that not to be the case. When I rang Winning Holidays they told me must have been a cleaner error and that they would get someone out straight away. We collected the keys just after 2pm, discovered no linen around 3pm. I rang to follow up at 4.45pm to be told they didnt realise we wanted to go to bed so early! Unnecessary I thought, it was Friday afternoon, and I am sure I would not have been able to conatct anyone after 5pm. Other that that though, the cottage was just what we needed.

Sea Urchin Getaway

Sea urchin was a fantastic location across from the dog beach. It was handy that it was dog friendly, which made it a perfect short get away for our family. It had everything we could ask for, and it was clean and tidy. Would definitely stay here again.

Beach Shack

Firstly arrived and property was not clean, the agents were great and fixed this immediately and sent a cleaner out, beds were unmade dirty towels and linen left on site, surfaces were not wiped over - the property was advertised as COVID safe however it was very clear that there was no cleaning between tenants.
We booked this winter stay as it had a fireplace, the seal on the fireplace is damaged and needs replacing when you put the fireplace on it is very smoky, so after the first night we did not put on anymore due to the smoke.
The property was dated the lounges are stained, the dining table has all coffee cup stains, I have taken photos of the property if needed.
Due to the fire not working properly we used the x 2 heaters on site when these were both on it tripped the power.
The owners need to have the fire fixed and update the property.
It was disappointing overall.
The location was good for dogs and the nearby beach however other than that this property was not as advertised the photos on the website must of been taken some time ago as the photos I have of the property do not compare and I am happy to provide these.
I am considering lodging a complaint to fair trading regarding the false advertising of this property - maybe they should mention that the fireplace is not operational and that the photos of the property were taken some time ago.

We are so pleased to hear that housekeeping was sent out immediately to clean the property, and we our very sorry that a clean had been missed between guests. Next time , please contact our office immediately if there is ever an issue upon arrival, then we can send housekeeping or our maintenance team out as quickly and smoothly as possible to rectify the situation without interrupting your holiday. We have emailed this guest as we have no record of any issue with the fireplace and no emails prior to this. We have asked the guest for the photos however have reminded her about the terms & conditions that they agreed to at the time of booking regarding “Property Description”.

Disappointed

Beds were unmade and dirty towels from last tenant, called the office they sent out a cleaner to change sheet and provide fresh linen, seeing COVID is so serious I am surprised as the website stated COVID safe. No toilet paper provided, fire place smoked the house out as it’s so old and the seal of the fireplace is all worn away, bbq and grill were filthy, was just so disappointed overall. House was in a handy position definitely had a beach shack vibe.

Lovely, Relaxed and Well Equipped

This house is perfect for a family getaway as the location is amazing with the beach right across the road and Nelson Bay town within walking distance. The owners have been very thoughtful about stocking the house with supplies, games, books and even wood for the fire. We had a wonderful time.

The quintessential beach shack

Sea Urchin is a beautiful quintessential beach shack. We were in Port Stephens for the National Flying 11 Sailing Championship and Sea Urchin was our base. It was fantastic, so relaxing! Very thoughtful owners had left plentiful supplies of all the basics such as washing detergent, salt, pepper, tea and coffee and much more. We felt so at home there, and our dog loved the back yard and the beautiful dog-friendly beach across the road! Thank you for making such a big week, so enjoyable!

Great Family Holiday

We just spent 2 weeks at Sea Urchin in Corlette. A great family holiday house. We called it a beach shack. Not fancy to look which might deceive but really was perfect for us as we were looking for comfort and practicality. You can pay and rent top dollar for shiny places then often find there is no care taken in them to make them feel like a home. Sea Urchin has a great warmth and feel, amazing open family space for living plus lots of homely things like DVDs, board games, books and a kitchen that makes it easy for a family to settle straight into. Things like olive oil, matches, salt/pepper, foil, cling wrap, bags, good kitchen equipment etc shows that someone has taken care with this house. Sea breeze from the bay meant that the house cooled down quickly once we opened windows and it was a hot two weeks but we never felt the house lacked for air conditioning. Perfect for us as a family of 2Adt and 2 kids and a dog. Already booked to go back again.
